The aptera story was on the first page of SD.com? hmmm....I have been rebuilding a few systems, and found the best result was to load mappoint from the disk, then load the demo from sd.com, then update to most current. I have done it a few times and I don't remember seeing the Aptera story until yesterday. But then, when getting the demo, I only need to scroll down a little and maybe I just missed it.
Still, for them to state it as a current fact could get them into a lot of trouble.
By the way, if anyone has a 20 second load time for SD, remove everything and follow the above sequence. For some reason, the 20 second load is caused by SD thinking you have a G4 and tries to load stuff that isn't there. With a proper load, SD should take 2-5 seconds from start to music.
