@kjarrett such an important issue - highlights “the power of the link” - can be constructive or harmful - carries important responsibilities
@ProfTK no worries - that happens to me too…
@mpondu you are most welcome - good luck!
@spedteacher it’s amazing how much faster the SAME laptop is after the reinstall - some apps I am going to skip or install 4just 1 user
@aforgrave I definitely put this off as long as possible too… my recent Apple Store repair (iSight camera went bad) gave me the excuse…
@ProfTK are your referring to a past tweet of mine? Trying to get the context :-)
@spedteacher with some of those apps, either an uninstall is painful or not completely possible
@spedteacher I’ve just installed too many apps with background services over the past 2 years that I don’t want anymore…
@smartinez I have had great luck with Mobile Me. My mom had some sync problems awhile back that were Entourage related, but now all is well.

@aschmitz great, thanks - I’ll give Foxit a try
Anyone know a lightweight PDF reader app, Win7 compatible, that’s a viable alternative to the full Adobe Reader?
@aschmitz I agree but a basic PDF reader could still be provided…
@billconnaghan well, I suppose that reason could Bgiven for anything MS doesn’t do… No one is suing Apple for shipping the Preview app tho
It strikes me as ludicrous Windows7 does not ship with a built-in PDF reader app. What is Microsoft thinking? People don’t read PDFs?
In Windows7, holding down the Windows key and pressing TAB lets you app/window switch like ALT-TAB, but it’s graphically a bit nicer
