    Broken glass and black displays -- not exactly the thing you want to see on a $2,000+ computer you just sold an organ for and waited what seems like eons. Reports from around the web are slowly trickling out this morning as more and more Core i7 Mac users start receiving their units. While not extremely high, the number of reported problems with either cracked glass or a unit simply refusing to turn on is above normal. Apple is supposedly replacing the units quickly and without much question ...

    Yeeeeooop. It's a slow news day. How about some light hearted reading. A picture is worth a thousand words, so I'll just let it do the talking. Feeling crafty? Gizmodo...

    Even if your Christmas tree is a bit sparse and your holiday meal is a microwave dinner delight, you can rest assured that you won't lose any sleep over any of Apple's pricing this fine Black Friday. If a leaked poster is to be believed, Black Friday 2009 will be quite a winner for Apple with a rather rare showcasing of generosity by the Cupertino giant. The supposed discounts as they appear: Up to 15% off of all accessories, hardware, and software Up to 25% off of all Macs (Hello 27" Core i...
  • Core i7 (Upgrade) equipped iMac’s: The best $200 ever spent…

    Results above are in 64-bit modeWhen the new iMac's were announced a couple months back, I like many of you were awestruck. The form was somehow even more delicious than previous generations with upgraded hardware that left me wanting two. Unfortunately for those who were ready to throw down cash on the spot for a new Core i7 beast, a November shipping date put a temporary block on the speed party. Well, it's November and said units are now shipping with benchmarks starting to trickle in. Wh...
  • Would you use a free, ad-supported OS?
    by Mike
    Posted November 16th, 2009 at 3:43 am
    "Free" is a term that in this economy, draws people in scores. Not necessarily because we're "cheap", but more so frugal. There's less money to go around and being a gadget nerd is not exactly cheap. We (us nerds) will often skimp on basic necessities just so we can have the latest in technology. Hey, it's what makes us tick...don't judge. With that sad, many programs, software titles, and even some hardware can be had at a significantly reduced cost when ads are thrown into the mix. I hat...
  • Microsoft calls out its own for claiming Mac inspired Win7 design…

    I can't say I didn't expect his one but Microsoft's Windows Blog made a post titled "How we really designed the look and feel of Windows" rebuking their Partner Group Manager Simon Aldous' statement that Windows 7 was designed with Mac's UI and aesthetic feel in mind. It wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing. Obviously Microsoft had a problem with this. The statement is short and to the point: I hate to say this about one of our own, but his comments were inaccurate and uninformed. The 'B...

    Say that one ten times fast. As Mac's become more widespread and more popular, seeing someone sitting across form you with that glowing white label just isn't what it used to be. But you don't have to blend in with everyone else. Many who join club Mac may be hip, but only a few are true geeks. So why not show it with the Macbook Lego Logo Holder decal. Featuring a nifty little LEGO guy with a perfectly formed club hand holding your Apple logo out back. Hi-tech it is not. Cool -- very mu...
  • 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 ...
  • Quad-core Macbook Pro’s coming soon, very soon?
    by Mike
    Posted October 26th, 2009 at 6:23 am
    Oh the geek inside of me is giddy. News of quad-core mac's are starting to trickle forth thanks to two new Macbook Pro model numbers referenced in the latest Snow Leopard 10.6.2 build seeded to devs. Such an update isn't too far from reality as the last update bestowed upon these mobile workhorses was way back in June at the Worldwide Developers Conference. An update must be close if the Macbook Pro's are to remain near the top of the heap. All fingers point towards Intel Clarksfield chips b...
  • Scour the digital and analog streets with the PowerMac G4 Bike
    by Mike
    Posted October 24th, 2009 at 10:14 am
    Taking gadgets, old gadgets in particular, and creating new forms of art, machinery, and all out geekery is something that when executed correctly results in utter beauty. In the case of this modded PowerMac G4 Bike, it may not be beautiful in the traditional sense, though the fact that it draws your gaze upon its body and sucks you in ever deeper means something does it not? While this Mac went back in time, no longer to surf the digital streets, (as the innards are now occupied by a 49cc mot...
  • Windows 7 and Boot camp not on talking terms. For now.
    by Mike
    Posted October 22nd, 2009 at 2:16 pm
    Reports out of Cupertino are showing that Windows 7 junkies looking to have the latest and greatest dual-booting machine will have to wait until dear old Saint Nick pays them a visit. According to Apple, current versions of Boot Camp do not support Windows 7. Instead, dual-booting hopefuls will have to wait until "the end of this year" as well as sport a Snow Leopard equipped computer. One other stinging realization is that first gen Intel machines spanning 9 actual machines and 3 product...
