On the bright side of things, Apple updated their AirPort Extreme firmware and Time Machine software so that I can finally back up my MacBook Pro wirelessly - I plugged a hard drive into the USB port on the AirPort and that was that.

On the lame side of things, check out their new icon that indicates a SMB file share:

[By way of explanation for you non-geeks: SMB, or Server Message Block, is the file-sharing protocol used by Microsoft Windows computers. The icon shown here shows a typical BSOD, or blue screen of death, from what's probably a Windows 95 computer; a BSOD is what you see when a Windows computer crashes spectacularly. In short, Apple is suggesting that Windoze computars are crashy!!!!!1!!1!1oneone. Yeah, yeah, whatever.

PS: the system I was connecting to is a Linux box, not a Windows box. LAME.]
