New and updated apps: Boot Camp, Juice Cubes, Faded and more!


Because it was only $40 when I got it (Versus $200 for Windows 7). I still need it for productivity (yes, at school, Windows is still widely used more than Mac), and of course, games or other useful software that I cannot used on Macs. I have a friend who couldn't use her old software that the school required on Mac but yet it installed flawlessly once I made a Windows partition on her Mac Airz Just like Windows, Mac aren't perfect. So sometimes the 2 need to go hand and hand for some. You'd also be amazed at how many times people have done an assignment on Pages, and then have it look like crap on Windows, so they have to copy/paste and re-edit their assignments again. While not a big deal, it is unnecessary.

When installing Windows 7 on my Mac prior to this Boot Camp update it would not accept the 32bit version but only the 64 so I wonder what fixes does this version bring? Probably the ability to install Windows without having to disconnect all USB's and other peripherals for the Mac Mini at least this was an issue that I ran in to repeatedly and the Genius Bar guys would tell me that it was a Microsoft problem any whew back to discovering new and updated apps ;)

I would really like to see boot camp support external lighting bolt and/or USB 3 drives. I have a rMPB with 250g ssd and it just takes up too much room to install. If I could offload it to an external drive, then I could hook up the external drive only for the few times I need Windows. But as it stands now, I don't need Windows as much as I need the internal storage.

I've never been to the wpcentral web site but this might be a question for them. I upgraded from windows 7 to win 8 when it was $14.99. I still have my email with the product key in it. But when I enter that key when trying to upgrade to 8.1 (it's a free upgrade I think) microsoft is telling me it is an invalid key. Any tips on what to do next?
