Poor battery life in the new macs? Better remove the 'time remaining' indicator to fix it!

I liked Gruber's analogy that this is like having a watch that ran fast so you just stop wearing watches altogether.

 

Window's has always been hilariously bad at estimating times, but I think it's still worthwhile to have it. Like Marco said in that post, if your battery is at 90% and it says you'll get two hours, it's probably some indication that a lot is going on, and that's potentially valuable. information.

I had a Mac Book Pro a generation or two ago, and I never really had a problem with estimating time with it. My ASUS is pretty good at it as well. The only computers I've ever had that were crap when it came to estimation were ones made by HP and Compaq. Really bad estimations. The worst.
