comment Does Google Chrome have a significant impact on MacBook battery life compared to other browsers?
Someone on Quora (quora.com/Is-Google-Chrome-MacBook-friendly/answer/…) just tipped me to FlashFrozen (flashfrozen.net), which is a menubar util that monitors how much CPU Flash is using on your system and will kill it system wide as needed. Hopefully this will help with battery life (& system heat!)

Ah, I guess it depends on your keyboard version. I'm referring to the standard North American English keyboard. It's called the Tilde if you want to look it up: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tilde#Computing

comment MacBook Pro Kernel Panic on Boot - even without a hard drive installed
no, just figured I'd go for a 2nd opinion here :) - have a 'diagnostic' appointment with the Genius Bar tomorrow, but this machine is out of warranty, so dead logic board means it's a write off...
