comment How do I tell if the Flash Player Installer is a virus?
As will OS X (10.6+) itself once the ProtectX definitions include the malware in question.

comment How do I tell if the Flash Player Installer is a virus?
Even with your update, the answer is the same. While I appreciate your academic interest, the solution, particularly for general users, is to discard updates offered up "out of the blue".

Your question is asked and answered. Don't install updates that are pushed on you in your browser. Visit the developer site directly to download updates.

comment iPhoto: How to only set the year of a picture?
I should have been more specific in my original comment. You can't do that, which is why I default to "Jan 1", or the nearest identifiable date, and use a keyword. Less than ideal, but it serves.

You can do that. Your question specifically asked for a way to set only the year.

This question is in effect a duplicate of Do I need to repurchase apps if I moved countries?.

comment iPhoto: How to only set the year of a picture?
Unless I can identify a more accurate date, I generally set these photos to January 1 of the appropriate year initially. Later on I may refine them: July 1 (if it's a summer scene), October 31 (Halloween costumes), etc. A keyword such as ?date will help you to identify (and refine) such pictures.

comment virtualbox running win7 64bit, too slow
I agree with @Matt Love in principle but, as a matter of practice my mid-2007 MBP is maxed out at 4GB. Running a VM can take its toll on performance, but in general the computer remains useable. Of course, our expectations and your environent will differ but you might do a little digging. Maybe you're running a particularly "hungry" program (or two) on the Mac side. Maybe the problem is CPU related, not memory. (That being said, more RAM won't hurt your cause and Matt is sharing solid advice.

comment Poor battery performance after SSD install
@Richard That's my battery. My MacBook Pro is plugged in to the wall all the time. Apple has replaced the battery three times, (twice out of warranty) and the last time the Apple Store manager specifically told me that that would be the last time. (No complaints, I was prepared to buy a battery.) I use the iPad when I'm on the go, so I haven't bothered to replace this one.
