How to eject a 3″ mini-CD from a MacBook’s SuperDrive

3" Mini-CD

I've squeezed the bastard....

Today I carelessly inserted a 3″ Mini-CD into to the SuperDrive of my beloved MacBook Pro. As the SuperDrive doesn’t accept these discs I was terrified that I’d not be able to get it out. Force ejecting the CD didn’t do much. Some sites suggested that I should resort to use a creditcard and mess around inside the SuperDrive. I regret that I did try it at first because much sensitive stuff is in there and I still didn’t get that damn mini-CD out. However, I opened the Terminal (Applications>Tools>Terminal) and typed ”drutil eject”. I repeated the command by using the up-arrow on the keyboard to repeat it and pressed enter several times. Each time the SuperDrive did it’s best to eject whatever was in there but failed. However I figured if I tilted the computer on the side with the SuperDrive facing downwards and then repeating the command time after time I might get it out. Finally the edge of the cursed mini-CD showed and as final procedure I closed the lid on my MBP and shook it until the mini-CD bastard popped out. Phew!

Tell me if you’ve got other solutions or problems and we can discuss it!

Apple har släppt iPad

På en presskonferens idag kl 19:00 svensk tid visade Apples grundare Steve Jobs upp företagets senaste innovation. iPad, är en ”tablet-PC” som består av en 9,7″ multi-touch skärm med WiFi och 3G (utvalda modeller). iPad är tänkt att vara ett mellanting mellan en MacBook och en iPhone. Den klarar högupplösta videor och spel, iWork (Apples motsvarighet till Office-paketet) och ska vara underbar att surfa, läsa mail och föra kalender med.

Men huvudsyftet var att utmana Amazon.com och deras Kindle – en skärm i nästan samma format men endast för e-böcker. I och med iPad introducerar Apple nämligen iBooks som är ett iTunes store för e-böcker i ePub formatet. Du kan bära med dig tusentals e-böcker och läsa dem var som helst. Touch-gränssnittet möjliggör bläddring i böckerna med fingrarna, ungefär som en riktig bok, vilken lär tilltala tvivlarna till e-boken. Gränssnittet är ungefär detsamma som på en iPhone eller iPod touch med skillnaden att man kan få upp ett stort snyggt on-screen tangentbord vilket gör det bekvämare att skriva mail eller att jobba i iWork än vad iPhones lilla skärm skulle tillåta. Dessutom är iPad kompatibel med alla iPhone applikationer som dessutom kan uppskalas till att täcka hela skärmen.

Personligen hade jag gärna sett uppdateringar av Apples MacBook Pro familj som är i slutet av sin produktionscykel. En gissning är i alla fall att de utrustas med Intels nya i5 processorer (i7 skulle vara för strömkrävande), något som exempelvis Dell redan har gjort med sina Inspiron laptops. Nya MacBook Pros lär komma snart men den som väntar på något gott…
