    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...
  • iPhone 3GS features a much uglier, eye friendly inverted color mode
    by Mike
    Posted June 22nd, 2009 at 8:56 am
    While the iPhone has one of the most highly regarded and copied UI's on any mobile device, many users who don't exactly have their own set of eagle eyes can often have trouble with the iPhone's UI as it currently is. Thankfully Apple has responded and though tucked away in some settings menu, the inverted colors mode is there for the less than ocular perfect individuals. Strangely enough however is the fact that this completely software based feature is locked out of all iDevices except the ...
  • Want h.264 GPU assisted processing in Snow Leopard? Better have an Nvidia 9400M or better.
    by Mike
    Posted June 10th, 2009 at 11:37 am
    Snow Leopard is bringing with it many notable speed improvements, memory management techniques, and space saving features that are worth more than the surprising though greatly welcomed $29 price tag. Perhaps one of the greatest features that Snow Leopard will bring is that of the CPU offloading cycles to the GPU to speed up tasks when things get hot and heavy. As long as you have an Intel equipped Mac and a graphics card from the following: NVIDIA Geforce 8600M GT, GeForce 8800 GT, GeForce...
  • Uh-oh, Porn mode in Safari 4 beta not so private
    by Mike
    Posted May 25th, 2009 at 11:52 am
    Safari 4 beta brought with it many enhancements.  Increased speed, the visually impressive thumbnail start page as well as a porn mode "privacy" mode that when activated would neglect to remember where you went, what you read, and/or what pictures you looked at - something other browsers such as Firefox have been able to do for sometime now.  However, if you have been giving Safari 4 beta's privacy mode a good beating, chances are your less than Sunday's best habits are still lurking on yo...
  • 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 becoming as buggy and crash happy as Windows?
    by Mike
    Posted May 15th, 2009 at 11:49 am
    The Mac world rejoiced a few short days ago when OS X 10.5.7 was let loose as it was a substantial update, most likely the last big one for Leopard before Snow Leopard arrives this fall. But the honeymoon was a short lived one as mere hours after the update was launched, users were reporting all sorts of problems. Problems ranging from digital signatures being labeled as "invalid", to dreaded "looping errors". Many users will remember back to simpler times such as earlier 10.x iterations su...
  • 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...
  • WWDC 2009 coming June 8th - sans El Jobso
    by Mike
    Posted May 13th, 2009 at 8:48 am
    For many Apple fanboys and Steve Jobs Fan Club members hoping to see their dear leader return to the helm of the fashion forward tech giant will have to come to the realization that it just isn't the right time yet. Apple themselves have outlined the way WWDC is going to go down with Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing leading the charge, not everyone's favorite black turtle neck model. As always, the event will kick off at 10:00am PST (they like sle...
  • App Store approval process broken with no fix in sight…denies Drivetrain remote bittorent control app.
    by Mike
    Posted May 11th, 2009 at 12:20 pm
    While the App Store has the potential to become phenomenal and completely obliterate everything else, the approval process hasn't been exactly the smoothest. In fact, it is by far one of the worst examples of a "team" or group I have ever seen. With double standards and wish wash guidelines, the App Store is to me dead. Not I don't expect it do whither away anytime soon. It will continue to grow as people sadly turn their cheek to Apple's gross irresponsibility. The latest and greatest in...
  • Blackberry Storm + Mac + Launch2Net = Wireless Freedom
    by Mike
    Posted May 8th, 2009 at 1:53 pm
    The Blackberry Storm is by far one of the riskiest moves ever taken on by RIM. Be eschewing the Blackberry's tried and true keyboard, the Storm had to rely on it's tight business integration and bullet proof email to make up for phsyical shortcomings. While the popularity and effectiveness at which RIM's first keyboardless phone was carried out is debateable, one thing is for sure - the Storm is a remarkable device. If you are a heavy traveler, you no doubt also enjoy the Blackberry's relat...

    If you love rumors and speculation and just so happen to be a Mac user impatiently waiting for the next update to Leopard, your wait may quickly be coming to an end.  According to a "super-secret" Apple source, 10.5.7 is set to grace Mac addicts everywhere, this Friday, May 8th 2009.  Features and fixes in the latest update include improved performance with networking, wireless, bluetooth, and syncing problems that have so far been a nuisance in previous Leopard builds.  The last private ...
  • Shower with your favorite fruit: iShower Curtain
    by Mike
    Posted May 2nd, 2009 at 1:23 pm
    If your idea of a sweet and stylish shower curtain is a mural of a bunch shadows dancing aimlessly standing in various poses as if they dance and sing in the shower, then your morning showers are soon to be a tad more enjoyable.  The iShower as it is so cleverly named, will surely please you, or the Apple fanboy in your life and make his or her daily self cleaning ritual all the more fun.  So how much do you really like Apple and iPods?  Enough to shower with them everymorning?
