    Not a week goes by that I don't see some form of Mobile iChat/iTablet rumor. Such has been the case for well over a year now. Many hoped that the iPhone 3GS would pack some form of the heavily sought after application as well as a front facing video camera for video calls. Truth of the matter is, while video calls are more popular in other parts of the world, here in the states the feature has failed to gain any real traction or even following. Perhaps one potential iPhone 4.0/iTablet fe...
  • “iTablet” to feature iPhone OS or full blown OS X? Portability and apps or power and expandability?

    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...
  • Bing iPhone app hands down classiest, nicest Microsoft designed product ever.

    Say what you will about Microsoft and Bing (ok, both are questionable) but Redmond's ultra new Bing search app for iPhone is hot -- at least visually speaking that is. While the styling is simplistic yet modern and basically feels right at home on the iPhone platform, it is actually pretty lust worth from someone with an eye for visual candy. I'm curious to see how many times (if multiple attempts were needed) to get a design tat was up to Apple's standards before they'd approve it. Speaking ...
  • Safari looses the bronze to Chrome.

    According to Microsoft, Chrome is nothing more than a "rounding error". Though as we continually watch Internet Explorers grip on the internet slip further and further down the totem pole (thank god) we can easily pass such comments off as comments made out of fear and uncertainty. It doesn't matter how Microsoft feels however as Google Chrome has officially moved from #4 to #3 in the browser world, unseating Apple' Safari. On my Mac I used to use Safari as my main browser as it was crazy ...
  • Google Chrome for Mac within days…maybe even hours….

    The few Mac users out there actually waiting for the official beta won't have much longer to wait. The evidence is in the "Mac Chrome Status Page" -- or what was the Status page. It has since been revamped and now displays "Mac OS X Roadmap". The weeks and weeks of waiting will soon be coming to a close. I guess those last 8 bugs that were keeping Chrome in that developer stage weren't so bad after all. (Or the devs never slept, ate, and wore diapers....) Of course, also seeing verbiage th...
  • Core i5/i7 (Arrandale) processors to grace MBP’s come early 2010?

    Those with itchy trigger/mouse fingers longing to order a new top-o-the-line Macbook Pro need to get control of themselves and holster their weapons for a brighter horizon is upon us. Would you be so eager to drop 2-3 large on a MBP knowing that Arrandale (read: Core i5/i7) processors are just around the corner from release, bringing a new generation of speed and power in the smallest most energy efficient package yet? Hmm, worded like that, even the king edition of a MBP somehow loses a bit o...
  • OS Xbox Pro the coolest Xbox mod. Period. Mac Pro stuffed inside…

    Ok, did I miss some announcement on some bizarre national mod week? I mean the OS XBox Pro (pictured above) is now one of many gadget mods we've covered over the last couple of days. All things considered, it could be the millionth custom mod and I would still be just as captivated and geeked out. Some of you may be unimpressed as it appears to be a minor Xbox mod with perhaps some tweaked internal hardware. It's sitting their in it's old age all innocent looking. Oh dear you c...
  • Apple’s Black Friday sale prices spied?!

    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...

    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…
    by Mike
    Posted November 12th, 2009 at 6:38 am
    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...

    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 ...
