Shockwave & Flash for Intel Mac

The latest Universal Binary Flash Plugin (9,0,28,0) now works in Safari 2.0.4 (419.3) — see Flash Player Update

A Universal Binary Flash Plugin is available, but Shockwave is still PPC only. Solution: run Safari in Rosetta.

Download the latest version! (as of 20060910: 9.0 r20 for Intel; 9.0 r16 for PPC)


MacBookPro Temperature Firmware

Battery Fault

SMC Firmware Update

This System Management Controller firmware update (unlike the one below) is offered via Software Update; now I really do think my MacBookPro is running cooler. This firmware and the SMC are invisible to About this Mac — the Boot ROM version remains the same as below.

Intel Mac (early 2006) Firmware Update 1.0.1 2006-04-17

Check your firmware version:
Apple Menu >> About this Mac >> More Info
The MacBook Pro Firmware Updater installs Boot ROM Version: MBP11.0055.B03
If your version is lower, follow the instructions!

I found this while reading Apple Discussions about overheating issues for MBP. The case around the area below the ESC key sometimes now feels cooler (I think - need temperature monitor).
