Apple want even more data

Seen on an iTunes app page at apple.com

Become a fan of the iTunes and App Store pages on Facebook for exclusive offers, the inside scoop on new apps and more.

Seriously? There will be nothing they will have on the FB pages that can by any stretch of any imagination be called “exclusive”. And “inside scoop”? On what? How are people believing this? Are they all mad?

kernel_task

I’m sure since the last OS X Lion Service Pack (I forget what the slick Apple term is for “here’s a shedload more code to fix stuff” is) that the kernel_task process just takes off on it’s own. 40% CPU? 800mb RAM? Sure, help yourself. It must be very important it’s job whatever it is otherwise Apple wouldn’t let it work this way would they? Between it and mdworker it’s amazing that anything else runs. It is supremely annoying to have other processes judder to a halt because of this.
