File a Bug Report with Apple Directly

Sep 18, 2009 - 6 Comments

appnamebuglogin I’ve run into some unusual quirks and bugs in Snow Leopard and based on conversation with other Mac users I know I’m not the only one. Instead of just complaining about it (or writing a post about it, like this!), it’s much more helpful to Apple and the Mac community to file a bug report directly with Apple. You can do this easily online here: You’ll need an ADC login to use the bug reporting tool, I imagine this is a requirement to insure that bug reports are filed by relatively qualified technical people. So if you stumble upon something which is definitely a bug, do everyone a favor and file a bug report with Apple!

    My MacBook (3 years old) has been having problems which include the following:
    computer freezes, curser goes wild, While working in pages curser lights up portions of an article in blue without warning, I click on the side of article and the blued out portion is deleted. I turn off computer, give it a rest, and come back to it and everything is fine for hours before problems occur again.

    I’ve never hacked anything before. I was just messing around with different movements on the iPhone and I got carried away. I found a bug on old software on at&t network. Then it worked on the iSo 5.1 as well. I remember how to do it. I have documented pictures of most of it. I think my phone is untraceable. My voicemail is 31761060023173786220 and I changed my dads number to a 18 digit number and it’s listed as unknown. It’s interfering with other phone systems and I’m reporting this to help you understand what I just did. I believe I just hacked the at&t network and possibly the iPhone. I’m 19, it was an accident. I’m also reporting this for a possible job with apple. I can send pictures. My cell number still works at 3176106228 it might work as with the first number I listed, but I believe it’s only outgoing calls.
    Please respond with your opinion on the situation – thanks
    Colin Havens
