High Definition is WAY over-rated

I JUST DONT UNDERSTAND why are people so overly obsessed about HD - as if HD is something new and it is truly revolutionary to have in your living room. HD has always been around - but just in different branding or among the different scope of people.

The SDs (Standard Definition - as in the non-HD) of today were referred to as HDs of 1936 and were used by the BBC...... because in those times, the SDs of our current time were far superior than the SD of their old times......... but it was just not *CALLED* a bloody HD during that time.

HD is nothing guys...... it's just another screen resolution like 640x480 , 800x600 , 1024x768 where HD fits in 1280x720 (for 720p) and 1920x1080 (for 1080p)....... and this is bound to improve further with time like it has been improving over the last decades...... there is nothing so uber-revolutionary about a HD thing.

How to Uninstall Applications from the Mac

Uninstalling application on a mac is easy....... but they can be either one-two-step long.... or they can be about fifteen-twenty steps long

Using the applications's built-in uninstaller
Some Mac applications come with their own uninstaller programs. If your mac application does come with its own uninstaller, then that's  the best way to uninstall your app .

Trashing the .app bundle using Finder
An app can be uninstalled by going to the /Applications folder using Finder and then, simply  moving a .app bundle (or an application folder) into the trash  like this:

Uninstalling from the Launchpad
Or you can do it from the OS X Lion (10..7) Launchpad.
In the launchpad (or in a launchpad app drawer), long-click an application icon until the app icons start to wiggle. If the app is removable from the Launchpad, then tiny 'X' should appear on the top left corner of the removable apps.  Click on the 'X' to uninstall the app  from the Mac - just like the way iOS does it.
