  • Early preview screenshot of BlackBerry Desktop Manager for Mac

    Mac fanatics and CrackBerry aficionados have cried out for years for Mac support in regards to Desktop Manager. All of the down and dirty syncing and maintenance on your berry had to be done on either a Windows box, or you would have to use 3rd party software that wasn't really all that great. Thankfully RIM has finally gotten into 2001 and decided that the Mac fan base just can't be ignored any longer. The screenshot comes courtesy of Adam Zeis from CrackBerry on a recent outing to the New...
  • 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 pointing iPhone OS instability finger at jailbreaking
    by Mike

    Apple's stance on jailbreaking is nothing new. They hate it. They want it written into law as illegal (stupid). Many people who have a love for the devices potential are often left wanting more when Apple goes on and does truly stupid banning GV apps. Because of the constant tug and pull of power that seems to go on between AT&T;, Apple, and the iPhone end user, many users take matters into their own hands by jailbreaking their devices. It truly is one of the best things you...

  • iPhone 3GS getting poor WiFi reception/speed? Turn off Bluetooth
    by Mike
    Posted July 16th, 2009 at 12:11 pm
    iPhone users just can't seem to catch a break can they. First the iPhone 3.0 update has spawned numerous WiFi connection issues. Now, 3GS owners in particular have a new problem to worry about regarding WiFi. If you are in fact a 3GS owner and were aware of poor WiFi reception and speed, try turning off Bluetooth. The iPhone 3GS makes use of a WiFi/bluetooth chip while the 3G uses two seperate chips for each. The resulting sharing of the antenna in the 3GS is apparently the reason for the...
  • Palm Pre/iTunes love follow up: iTunes 8.2.1 ends relationship!
    by Mike
    Posted July 15th, 2009 at 1:38 pm
    The announcement of native iTunes support for the Palm Pre was by far one of the biggest shockers to come from Palm land way back when the Pre was but a mere want. Now that it has transgressed into a have, many users have been quite happy with the native iTunes integration. Naturally Apple isn't as it is an "outside" in their not so perfect world. A few weeks back, the two exchanged messages via press releases, twitter accounts, and public announcements centering around the doomed from the ...
  • Apple adjusts some UI elements in latest Snow Leopard build
    by Mike
    Posted July 10th, 2009 at 11:54 am
    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...
  • iPhone 3G”S” not so quick on the up and up
    by Mike
    Posted July 9th, 2009 at 8:14 am
    The iPhone 3GS is marketed by Apple as a worthwhile speed improvement over the iPhone 3G. While the bumped up processor and better still graphics chip have easily noticable speed increases over the older 3G model, the actual data speed side leaves much to be desired. In actuatlity, clever marketing jargon and coy business tactics helped Apple push the 3GS as much faster than it really is. What exactly are the dirty secrets? It all has to do with upload speeds...or the lack thereof... (...
  • OS X Dock in your way? Dock Gone here to save the day.
    by Mike
    Posted July 7th, 2009 at 12:18 pm
    Again, sorry for my poor rhyming skills coming out yet again in the title. It bubbles up from within and I can't help it. Moving on, the OS X dock is either something you live for, or something you'd kill to have forever disappear. I for one fall into the former, I love the dock and find it highly useful. Especially in Snow Leopard with the newest enhancements and refinements. For the latter, you can of course hide the dock, but that is only a band aid on a gaping amputation. Instead, ri...
  • iPhone OS 3.1 to drop before end of July? [Rumor]
    by Mike
    Posted July 2nd, 2009 at 12:51 pm
    With numerous iPhone 3G/S overheating horror stories popping up over the web, tales of slugishness with this new found 3.0 software, and overall bugginess, one would think Apple would want to get on it and issue a fix ASAP. And that is exactly what Apple is doing. Leaked images of beta builds of iPhone OS 3.1 have been making their way around the web the last couple of days bringing with them numerous fixes and enhancements. One recent security hole that was found involving malicious code s...
  • And you thought your MacBook Pro was sleek…
    by Mike
    Posted July 1st, 2009 at 1:42 pm
    Macs are known for their simplisitc design and sleek lines. Apple obviously knows a thing or two about making gadgets not only work, but making them look good while doing it. However, silver/aluminum just isn't everyone's cup 'o tea. Thankfully, we color loving consumers have Colorware to look after us. Introducing Colorware's Stealth Matte Black MacBook Pro, a beast of a machine with an equally sinister paint job. Sure $6,000 is a lot to spend on something that would otherwise set you ba...
  • Stacks comes to Windows 7 by way of “7Stacks”
    by Mike
    Posted June 30th, 2009 at 12:42 pm
    While the dock is a love it or hate it feature in OS X, most people who enjoy the dock's company also in some form enjoy stacks. The expanding folders that reside on the dock make it easy and quick to see inside a particular folder. Until now, Windows users have had to suffice with....nothing (please correct if I'm wrong). However, your patience has paid off as Windows 7 will finally bring with it a nifty 3rd party app called "7Stacks". (more...)...
