  • “iTablet” to feature iPhone OS or full blown OS X? Portability and apps or power and expandability?
    by Mike

    I stumbled on a thought provoking article on MacDailyNews that really got my mental juices flowing... iPhone OS Looking at the title above and taking into account the various bits of information surrounding a so called Apple tablet that has been beaten and flogged across the digital waves the last year would lead most to believe that any actual device would feature an iPhone-esque OS. I mean, why not? If you want to keep things simple and battery friendly while also tapping into the app st...
  • Crawl inside the skin of Snow Leopard [Hidden features]

    I'm a tinkerer by heart. I love to fine tune my gadgets and software until they break -- then I do it all over again. Nature of the beast I guess. Mac OS X has usually been a rather simple more simplistic OS in that without help from 3rd parties, it is generally pretty involved to make any system tweaks. It doesn't matter if you actually don't know how or don't have time, I'm sure if a solution existed to drastically reduce your time spent tweaking you'd be all for it. What about something ...
  • Apple iMac, Macbook, and Magic Mouse updates!

    Where to start. I guess we'll lead of with the smallest and work our way up. Magic Mouse First on the line, the new Magic Mouse brings multi-touch/gesture to the mouse world. Operation is as one would expect, 2 finger swipes and pinches do all sorts of panning, zooming, and moving actions on your screen. The Mighty Mouse isn't so mighty anymore (was it ever?) Macbook The bargain basement Macbook, once $999, is still....$999. What happened to "newer" and "cheaper" products? To be fai...
  • CrunchPad to compete with theoretical Apple Tablet?
    by Mike
    Posted July 31st, 2009 at 12:10 pm
    An interesting war could soon be starting. No it's not a war of man and military machines, but instead a war between an underdog and seasoned veteran. The underdog, Michael Arrington of TechCrunch teamed up with a Singapore tech startup, Fusion Garage to get his CrunchPad idea into reality. From the beginning, the CrunchPad was to be a $200 touchscreen tablet device that would eschew the typical local storage and focus primarily on the web in both program usage and storage (as the device do...
  • Apple adjusts some UI elements in latest Snow Leopard build

    Faithful OS X fans who were hoping for Snow Leopard to bring about a freshening to the aging look of Leopard were surely let down when Snow Leopard was revealed earlier this year with the same exact face as Leopard. The lack of change was to many hardly a surprise however as Snow Leopard is being marketed as a simple "re-tooling/re optimization" of Leopard -- why go UI crazy on a "minor" update. Save that for OS 10.7...right? It seems that Apple as of late has been getting impatient on wait...
  • Hard drive fail? No worries…boot from SD card.

    In many computer users' lives, the time will come when your computer isn't acting quite as happy and peppy as it once did. The computer golden years aren't as fond as the human variant not only in the demands required of aging technology, but also in the fact that "old" comes about relatively quickly in the tech world. With Apple's latest addition of an SD card reader on the MacBook Pro line, new possibilities are now available such as actually reading SD cards without having to use some stu...

    Those of you who a part of the growing user base of OS X, particularly the Leopard flavor (10.5), will be pleased to know that TetherBerry, a tethering solution of Mac OS X was has just been been updated. As far as actual features go, it's a tethering app...what more do you want. Instead of "features", this latest update brings with it more stability which is always a good thing. No one likes having to constantly reconnect to the internet after constant disconnects. OS X users who are usin...
  • Adium 1.4 beta brings Twitter and IRC support to the digital table - among other guests
    by Mike
    Posted May 19th, 2009 at 10:54 am
    While iChat is a pretty decent multi-IM Apple grown client, it isn't perfect. Thankfully there's Adium, one of if not the most popular 3rd party multi-IM client for Mac. Those of you who have been clamoring for Twitter and/or IRC support in Adium have for some time now had to go through life half empty, never quite feeling like yourself. However, this empty and hollow feeling can now be replaced with joy, happiness, and a chorus of keyboard typing pecks for hours on end as Adium's ever long...
  • OS X 10.5.7 brings support for netbooks - Apple version imminent
    by Mike
    Posted May 15th, 2009 at 7:04 am
    Scores of Apple rumors over the last few months have been constantly repeating the belief that Apple is nearing their first netbook product release. Apple maintains that so far they haven't found a way to build the typical netbook you are used to seeing while still keeping a level of quality and sophistication not found in the current offerings. However, as of late with the latest release of OS X 10.5.7 Leopard, many individuals are starting to notice something that is pointing towards a net...

  • Leopard 10.5.7 coming very *Very* soon…according to Nvidia product page

    OS X 10.5.7 has been the talk of the Apple world for the last several weeks, and for good reason.  This last major update before Snow Leopard is set to bring a slew of bug fixes and minor performance improvements to the slightly older yet still highly capable operating system.  Nvidia as many of you may not know, recently annouced their new Quadro FX 4800 graphics cards for Macs.  What do I tie these two topics together?  Well, the release of the Quadro FX 4800 more or less confirms an i...
  • [How-to] automatically activate “Private Browsing” in Safari/Leopard

    If you are the type who enjoys your privacy either because you have some secret agent job, or enjoy the more risque content the internet has to offer, Safari has an option just for you: "Private Browsing".  When activated it doesn't store cookies, history, passwords, etc.  After closing Safari  from a private browsing session, upon reopening you will find that your past session is if it never happened.  Now, would you like private browsing to be turned on as default?  Sorry...
