    Everyone has been getting all hot and bothered lately about Apple's next UI overhaul.  What will it look like?  Well, since iTunes 7 came out with a darker look, you have probably been staring at the next Apple OS UI and didn't even know it.  Apple loves simplicity, eye candy, and used to cherish uniformity.  However, with the darker look in iTunes 7/8 and now the new iLife '09 suite, Apple seems to either be going through a slow transition as to not shock us all at once, or they themsel...

    Even though Snow Leopard's launch is coming closer, that hasn't stopped Apple from working out issues with the current flavor of OS X, Leopard.  It is rumored that Apple is starting to release test builds of 10.5.7 to developers this week.  Included in the new .7 update come many fixes for several issues.  The biggest portion of the OS that seems to be getting the most attention is syncing.  iCal, MobileMe, Address Book, Mail, and system preferences.  Another issue where Safari doesn't ...

    Apogee Electronics, long time Windows software developers and audio enhancement/editing devices has announced that 2009 is the year of change for them as they run like crazy over to team OS X where they will begin investing all of their time, money, and resources in developing software for Mac operating system.  Apple computers are known for their graphic, audio, and video editing capabilities.  Apogee has realized this and is using that as their reason.  Current Windows users who have Ap...
  • iLeopard gives OS X a new, darker lease on life.

    Is the Aqua style on Leopard mixed with the flat style of iTunes combined with the other UI inconsistencies driving you crazy?  Think back a couple years to when every one in the Mac world was speculating about what UI changes Leopard would bring to the OS X world.  Coming from the Aqua style of Tiger, many thought Apple would tone it down about in the UI department cutting out some of the "shine" and "gloss".  However, judgement day came and Leopard was just as shiny as ever, if not mor...
  • A “hard core multi tasker”: 200 apps open at once in Mac OS X!

    This race to see who can have the most apps open at once is completely useless in the sense that it doesn't help anyone.  However, it is really cool.  "Hawkskater0", a reader over at Gizmodo sent in a picture of him doing the impossibly tedious feat.  Running on a 2007 20' iMac 2.4GHz with 4GB RAM he opened 200 apps!  He said that even while waiting for apps to open and with the screen freezing constantly he was still able to carry on a video chat session throughout.  Impressive.  How ...

    Are you one of the many people disappointed with Apple's choice glossy only?  Or, are you in disgust that they are forcing matte screen lovers to shell out for the top end MacBook Pro AND pay an extra $50 just to be able to see the screen in a brightly lit room?  If you answered yes to either of the above, Tech Restore has a solution for you.  They have put together a matte screen replacement package that will rid you of the awful glare the glossy screen throws at your eyes.  The serv...
  • SkyBox > MobileMe?
    by Mike
    Posted January 19th, 2009 at 11:47 am
    If Microsoft's plans roll out smoothly with their "cloud" ideas, SkyBox could be greater than MobileMe.  Granted, MobileMe had a very rocky start, but issues aside, it is now fairly reliable and easy to use.  The "sky" titled services will be geared towards not only Windows devices, but many devices from different manufacturers.  It is Microsoft's attempt to bring in more users to the Windows world and emulate some of the "closeness" Apple markets with their many services. (more...)...
  • New Apple Mac Mini’s to use Nvidia’s “Ion” platform…Performance takes a backseat?
    by Mike
    Posted January 15th, 2009 at 6:20 pm
    Leading up to Macworld practically every inch of Apple's lineup was touched with a rumor.  One hard hit area that was sadly left out of the updates (so far) was the Mac Mini.  It is long overdue for a refresh.  Tom's Hardware and Crunchgear shed some light on the subject today.  The new Mac Mini's will be sporting Nvidia's 9400M graphics with Intel's Atom 330, a low power, dual-core processor that should clock in around 1.6GHz with a FSB reportedly at 533MHz.  Not blazing, but the Mini ...

        According to Apple Insider and 9to5 Mac, Snow Leopard will be transitioning from the "brighter" flash of Leopard into a "darker" and "smoother" looking OS, the theme is currently going by the name of "Marble". The new look can be previewed by going to The overall look is going towards what iTunes and iWork currently look like while also incorporating some design touches from the iPhone UI. Personally, I like the new look if it is in fact coming to Snow Leopard. Click th...

    Posted January 12th, 2009 at 11:25 am
    The time is coming folks.  Google Chrome is coming to OS X.  Apple Insider is reporting that a conversation between a Cnet reporter and Google Chrome product manager, Brian Radowski, that the Mac and Linux versions of Chrome are progressing nice and that they hope to reach a release in the 1H of the year.  Apparently, the Mac version has reached the "test shell" stage meaning it can display websites but that's about it.  There isn't any extra features implemented yet as they want to get ...
  • Google Chrome one step closer to Mac!

      I don't know about you, but I have been waiting somewhat unpatiently for Google's Chrome browser to come to Mac OS X.  However, one of the stumbling blocks has been removed with the latest version of Chrome.  The older version used WinHTTP windows only network libraries, a problem for cross-platform support.  The new version uses its own HTTP network library.  Good news indeed.  It shouldn't be too much longer until Mac users can enjoy Chrome!   Source: Alley Insider...
