Apple Releases Fix for iMac Freeze Issue, fix not enough

In recent months, some users were experiencing freezing problems with their iMacs, apparently due to faulty drivers used for the included ATI Radeon HD graphics cards. Apple aimed to fix the issue by the end of October and has just now released the "recommended" update for 20" and 24" iMacs with 2GHz, 2.4GHz and 2.8GHz processors. Apple has two separate updates available for download: iMac Software Update 1.2 for Tiger and iMac Software Update 1.3 for Leopard. Although the company originally stayed silent on the issue, it is great to see that once they acknowledged it they worked quickly to release a fix. Some users are reporting, however, that the issue remains unfixed.

Very true.

Newsflash for all you Apple-kiddos-- If it wasn't for Microsoft, Apple would not have existed in its current form today. Don't believe me? Look it up.

Oh that's a fact "they" would rather forget.

OHHHH NOEEESSZZZ!!!! The Maxor does not the working!!!11111 The apple fanboys seem to be extremely silent right now.....a ghost town in the Jobs camp per chance? Funny how it works.

According to members at MacRumors, this did not fix that problem: "Some had hoped this would fix the intermittent Freezing problem that Apple had promised to address, but a couple of reports in our forums claim this problem persists even after applying the software update."
