Got a Apple MacBook at Office today!

Today at work I got the Apple's MacBook that my boss purchased at Microcenter, it is really slick and it was very easy to get started.

Adding the mac to Windows Active Directory was not an issue, but it seems that I cannot give administrator access to my Win AD account, I guess, I would have to dig up some documents to find out, how I can give my AD account the administrator privileges.

Additional issue I am facing is on how to maximize the safari browser window, as double clicking the window is not making it maximize, but rather just large square size, I like the window to maximize in width and not just in height, as this will make the window full size as the screen size of the macbook.

The main reason for the mac purchase is to test drive one of our clients application and to make sure the video's, JavaScript and the pages renders exactly or closely as the windows desktop version. Additionally we have video's on the web site which are developed in windows media player file format of wmv and as windows media video is not default on mac, I installed the flip4mac, I was hoping to see all is well but it's not the case, the video doesn't seem to be rendering correctly and now I would have to find out what is the cause for the issue.

Hopefully if I can find out the issue and also resolve the issue, than I can easily add the Mac or MacBook compatibility to the application.

My only worry for this is to become a nightmare that can't be solved, but hopefully that will not be the case :)

Mobile Screenshot Crime

Why-O-Why am I not able to take a screenshot on Phones? I had the same issue on Windows phone and now I feel the same with Google Nexus. Why can't we have a simple option next to flash light for screenshot or some other combination that will not open up the volume option or the power off or restart option.

There must me a better way to take a screenshot. No, not through some third party app but rather a build in option. Who would have thought that with all the camera and video features build into the phones, we would actually be struggling with taking a screenshot?
I don't know if it's just me but I can't seem to have my thumb or fingers in sync to the mini-mils second. I end-up almost always on volume popup, or if I try my luck to the other dark side; the power off popup; it should be a crime to not be able to take a darn screenshot, or allow some of us to choose different key combination to take a screenshot.

Update:
It seems the culprit is the phone case; so much f…

Google Mail Hangout Message Upon Delete Action

Don't know if I get annoyed this much as the Google's Mail Hangout Message, when I select to delete number or messages.

"Because some are part of a Hangout, they have been removed from your Mail mailbox, but will still show up in other Hangouts apps and chat windows."

The message takes over the entire tool bar, and does not allow me to repeat the actions, it does not goes away until way late and would have appreciated but not allowed is a option to close. If I want to delete more items on the same page than i have to refresh the window to repeat the task.

Wish the future update can allow me to close this message.

Microsoft Band and Windows Phone 8 Support

Will Microsoft Band be supported on Windows Phone 8? Without the 8.1 update?
I have been searching for answers since the Band was announced, but so far can't find any notes regarding my old phone.
I even have Windows Phone 7 but it seems that will be a no no from Microsoft.
If you have something to share please post it below.
