Forum roundup: homebrew MacBook Pro Fusion Drive

updated 03:04 pm EST, Fri December 7, 2012

Homebrew MacBook Pro Fusion Drive

Yesterday Mac Elite "Doc HM" proudly announced the completion and installation of a "homebrew" Fusion Drive for his MacBook Pro in the MacNN forums, click here to read more about this great success and find a link to read the full report on how this was done. One Dedicated MacNNer is looking for a way to modify the keyboard on the iPad mini to be more like the iPhone keyboard.

One Fresh-Faced Recruit has a rather unique IP configuration problem that they are trying to solve, and a solution has yet to be found. A discussion about iTunes 11 continues in a thread that started last month, but was resurrected after the latest update to the software. Grizzled Veteran "jeff k" started a debate about e-mail host services in the thread titled "tried IMAP again and went back to POP".

    Using OS X's built-in Fusion Drive support, duh.

    Moving goalposts again.

    Your whole argument was built around the fact that identical functionality has been around for years and other systems. First you argued that the Flash caching of the Momentus XT drives was the same thing; then you argued that it was just RAIDing, and after that I lost interest.

    It would seem pretty obvious that FD could be enabled by installing a similar hardware setup and switching on the OS function.
    Nobody ever argued that it couldn't, and you certainly didn't argue about it.

    just playing with ya. Now you know Fusion Drive is bs marketing crApple hype of THEE most typical kind. Thanks for accepting that.

    oh, and what I have always said has and is true. What is there to argue about really? Two separate technologies working as one. Really... I gave you different examples how this is done.

    Yes, you did. In fact, i listed your examples in my very post. None of them works the way the Fusion Drive does.

    ok, and did you know you can implement scripts to your hearts desire to achieve what you want out of OSX? The possibilities are endless due to included underlying tech behind OSX. Think automation... my favorite.

    You two should team up for a tech podcast. It would be pure entertainment.

    I'm actually quite certain that we'd have a great time if we met over a beer.

    We'd probably not talk at all about the pointless bullshit we argue here.

    I don't know if they still do it but Sky Sports used to do an 'Alternative Commentary' audio track for their coverage of football matches where one fan of each of the teams involved had won a competition to be there "commentating" It always devolved into slanging matches. Hilarious.
