  • Quad-core Macbook Pro’s coming soon, very soon?

    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...
  • Apple giving up on ZFS?

    Those looking forward to a new storage format for OS X will be sorely disappointed. ZFS which was to be the successor to the current HFS+ sometime down the road appears to have been shelved indefinitely. As 9to5 Mac highlights a comment from ...
  • Windows 7 and Boot camp not on talking terms. For now.

    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...
  • Intel a Hackintosh supporter?

    My my. It's only against the law if you're under the law. Sound familiar? Ever experience double standards in play? Apparently Intel is a supporter of not only double standards, but hacking as well. Check out the image above and focus on the left. While Intel was busy showing off "Light Peak", their 10Gbps optical interconnect technology geared towards mobile devices, one particularly interesting thing they didn't highlight was the cute little Hackintosh running it all. Read over your o...
  • Does a Steve Jobs appearance at Sept. 9th iPod event really matter?
    by Mike

    Since Steve Jobs went on medical leave from Apple over 6+ months ago, many speculated the grand unveiling of the iPhone 3GS and iPhone OS 3.0 would see his triumphet return to the world of fruited gadgets. For many, their excitement and hope came to a screeching hault when it was Phil Schiller doing the majority of the big talking instead of the crowd favorite, Steve. With the next big event, the iPod announcement coming on September 9th, the rumor machine is again churning out so called sto...
  • Craving a little Snow Leopard early review?
    by Mike
    Posted August 27th, 2009 at 5:28 am
    Apple's Snow Leopard OS launches tomorrow and comes into the world as one of their cheapest upgrades in a long time -- 8 years in fact. If you are contemplating upgrading for monetary reasons, current Leopard users can take advantage of the super attractive $30 price, while Tiger users will have to pony up an extra $130. (Though Walt Mossberg is claiming you can go from Tiger -> Snow Leopard w/o doing a splash and go with Leopard). Whether or not Mr. Mossberg is correct, one thing is for cer...
  • BlackBerry Desktop Manager for Mac “cleaner, faster, and less-bloated than PC version”.
    by Mike
    Posted August 21st, 2009 at 9:56 am
    While Mac/OS X and BlackBerries/BlackBerry OS both share the same basic philosophy, "It just works", the way they display that ideology to the world is considerably different. Macs have a pristine eye candy appearance whereas BlackBerries employ a bare bones simple approach to the whole UI thing. Since the dawn of time (and the two respective companies), Mac support for RIM developed software has been sorely lacking to non-existant. 3rd parties have had to step in to remedy the situation wh...
  • New Snow Leopard wallpapers make early entrance

    Even though Apple designs some pretty cool UI elements and environments, their taste isn't always your taste. Thankfully end users have many options in changing up their desktop and UI elements to suit their needs and keep themselves in the happy camper group for most of their lives. For those of you who like pretty pictures and are anxiously awaiting the up and coming OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard release, a Snow Leopard beta tester has graciously uploaded the entire set of new Snow Leopard wallpa...
  • 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...
  • 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...
  • And you thought your MacBook Pro was sleek…

    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...
