After the "Salsa Incident", the pic was dump and shoot (Placed the laptop though)

The white/grey/black colour scheme happened by accident!
The desk is a Fredrik Workstation from Ikea.
Most cables are attached to the desk with cable ties to keep them out of the way and there’s a USB hub attached to the back of the panel under the desk.
The panel is also supposed to act as a cable shelf but British plugs are too big to fit inside it properly!
Also in this picture:
Canon MP210 printer/scanner/copier, Griffin laptop stand, Huså Work Lamp, Ageing Logitech MX1000 mouse, Sennheiser HD210 headphones (handy when my wife is watching TV at the other end of the room), Dymo labelling machine, some Uni-ball Jetstream pens from jetpens.com (I bought one in Japan last year and haven’t been able to find them in the UK), fresh mug of coffee.
Still to do:
Find a decent bluetooth mouse to replace the MX1000. Partly because the batteries don’t hold their charge like they used to and partly so I can lose the cradle.
Buy a pair of Logitech Z-10 speakers.
Find a replacement light – it’s nice to have some bias lighting but the lamp is too big and the bulb too close to the wall. I’m thinking about getting some cheap cold cathode lights and attaching them to the back of the desk instead.

This is what it looks like when I’m gone-sorta.
The sorta part is normally my stuff and computer is in my bag and that bag is gone.

I skipped the step in the guide that said to disconnect the microphone and power cables from the logic board because there was a change of pulling the entire socket off the logicboard, thus rendering it dead (since I’m not practiced in the art of micro-soldering logicboards, I did not want to chance this). Instead, when I pulled the upper case away from the lower case, I just balanced the upper against the edge of the lower. I put the tape and later the battery behind it to hold it upright and close to the edge as to not pull on the cables coming from the microphone and power sockets.

Even without that huge 24" LCD, it looked like a very good idea, to place all of the 110V-AC gear together with the laptop inside the big Stanley-box.
But NOW I think this isn’t all that useful :
- will want to have the laptop for GPS/NAVI use in the cockpit
- want to recharge batteries while driving (in the car’s cockpit)

This is basically what my desk looks like on any given day at work. Generally the Mac isn’t there, but it’s a Saturday so I am watching some Family Guy while I work.

I have a macbook that shows the battery symbol with an x in it. It says no batteries available, and at one point it said batteries not charging. As you can see I go through the steps Apple provides to fix this issue, and it does not work. I also show that I have bought a replacement battery and the original. I tried these steps with both batteries multiple times. They both are fully charged although the macbook does not recognize it. My connectors are all in good condition. Also, iTunes automatically opens now since this started happening. Is this a desperate, and/or corrupt attempt to have consumers buy AppleCare, and purchase music? Why else would the steps they provide to help fix the problem not fix the problem? Anyway, I’m rambling now, but I am extremely pissed. I can’t even enjoy my computer anymore as a laptop.
Everybody has come across a lithium-ion battery storing energy in a laptop computer, cell phone or cordless drill. A bright future is being predicted for these batteries in modern electric vehicles. But how does this power pack work? The animation shows how the battery components interact…
Some netbook computers we are testing at work with laptop in background

All the netbooks are 1GB RAM, 160GB hard drives with Intel Atom processors, and 6 cell batteries.

Why laptop battery can not charge and out of work
Generally, we said our laptop battery dead means that : the battery out of charge or discharge. The laptop battery can not work after used for some months most caused by the problem. Also sometimes the battery suddenly can not be recognized by laptop. This is the adapter or mohterboard problem (espacially in dell laptop battery).
To second problem we only can change the adapter or motherboard.
Why Laptop battery can not discharge
(1.)The laptop battery after the storage using and the life decay;
(2.) Lacking charge or not be charged;
(3.) Ambient temperature is too low;
(4.) Discharge efficient less, such as the large current discharge cause voltage sharp drop to 0, then electricity can not be released
(5.) The laptop battery has been in over-discharge protection.
The Solution for Laptop battery can not dischage
(1.) The Apple A1185 Battery during storage should take a monthly charge and discharge;
(2.)Charging the battery at 10% state;
(3.)Using in a normal environment;
(4.)Using proper adapter of the machine.
(5.)To place it in icebox for about 10 hours and cool place 2-4 days to unlock the protection
Why laptop battery out of charge
(1.)The battery in zero voltage;
(2.)Charging failure, no output current;
(3.)External factors have led to the charging efficiency is too low
(such as low or high temperature).
The solution for laptop battery can not charge
(1.)Check your charger output voltage and current;
(2.)Check the laptop battery charger output connection is good or not
(3.)Charge the battery with 1.5 times the maximum voltage of the battery, 1.5C high current charging, active the battery . (Only when the battery can not charge, use this method).

Been a while since I did one of these for the "whats in your bag group" so decided another was in order – this is the contents of my work bag, notes are self explanatory but It does look like I am carrying too much junk around these days
Missing : mobile phones, work ID

I went into the applestore in san francisco to buy a spare laptop battery for long flights. The new touches had just arrived a few hours before. I wouldn’t even have known if I hadn’t overhead someone talking about it, because they weren’t on the shelves yet.
16gb model – the 8 isn’t in yet.
