    That was very useful. Thank you, I have been considering upgrading my memory for some time. I may even upgrade the memory of my MacBook, too ;-))

    Also, maybe you get that dog in the background near the end his own show!!

    Do you still have to "ground yourself" when installing memory? I used to work at Microsoft, as a peon. But anyway, the guy who put in my memory always attached something to his wrist and then picked up the memory thing with a tweezer that was attached to the unit and then installed the memory.
    When I asked what the world he was doing, he said you have to ground yourself, I think so you don't get shocked.
    Do you still have to put that thing around your arm and use a clip to apply the memory?

      It is a good idea to do that whenever working with any electronics. Static electricity could cause a spark and damage things.
