  • Stacks comes to Windows 7 by way of “7Stacks”

    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...)...

    As any mobile Mac user will account for, I'm sure it's pretty frustrating when you whip open your laptop to do business or play and discover you simply can't get a good signal if any at all. While signal strengths and the ability to actually latch on to lower strength signals varies greatly from device to device, having the ability to increase your range proactively is something any mobile user should covet. The Quicky Jr. II does just that. According to manufacturer claims, the Quicky Jr. ...

    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...
  • Want h.264 GPU assisted processing in Snow Leopard? Better have an Nvidia 9400M or better.

    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...

    Those of you who a part of the growing user base of OS X, particularly the Leopard flavor (10.5), will be pleased to know that TetherBerry, a tethering solution of Mac OS X was has just been been updated. As far as actual features go, it's a tethering app...what more do you want. Instead of "features", this latest update brings with it more stability which is always a good thing. No one likes having to constantly reconnect to the internet after constant disconnects. OS X users who are usin...
  • Pystar: “We outta money - hello bankruptcy”. Apple: “Checkmate”
    by Mike
    Posted May 26th, 2009 at 1:10 pm
    Seems as if the Apple/Pystar drama just took another turn for the worst (if you're on camp Pystar that is). Seems as if Pystar is having a bit of money problems seeping through their secretive layer and has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, meaning any "secret financial backers" will not be publicly known financial backers. Sadly, if Pystar goes under, one brave force that finally stood up to Apple's monopolistic ways (yes I own a Mac and yes I like it) is now gone strengthening Apple's every...
  • 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...
  • 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...
  • Seagate Replica brings Time Machine-esqe features to Windows world

    Posted April 27th, 2009 at 5:03 pm
    Apple users have in recent years touted Time Machine as the most efficient and easy to use back up service available in the world today taking away the worry and pain of having to remember to manually back up your data.  Then the Time Capsule debuted and made even wireless back ups and storage simple.  Until now, if you wanted a program that operated as nicely as Time Machine or a piece of hardware as nice as Time Capsule, your only choice was to switch to OS X.  Many people however don't...
