  • Got an old 1984 Macintosh lying around? If so…

    Send it to me, if that doesn't work for you, why not get it running Snow Leopard and brag to all your lame arse friends that they didn't do it first! Jake Howe took an old 1984 Macintosh 8mhz computer and upgraded most everything(without actually damaging it, incase he wanted to take it back to stock components) to get this beast running Mac OSX Snow Leopard, that's a 200% upgrade on the processor speed! That would of cost 'OVER 9000' bucks back in '84 Without spending much money at all, us...
  • “iTablet” to feature iPhone OS or full blown OS X? Portability and apps or power and expandability?
    by Mike
    Posted December 28th, 2009 at 11:17 am
    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...
  • Crawl inside the skin of Snow Leopard [Hidden features]
    by Mike
    Posted November 6th, 2009 at 1:17 pm
    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 ...
  • Quad-core Macbook Pro’s coming soon, very soon?
    by Mike
    Posted October 26th, 2009 at 6:23 am
    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?
    by Mike
    Posted October 23rd, 2009 at 3:53 pm
    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 ...
  • ….and the Mac Mini
    by Mike
    Posted October 20th, 2009 at 12:08 pm
    Whoops. Forgot the little guy in the other post. Since it's introduction, the Mac Mini has often received updates and tweaks without much fan fare as it's larger brethren such as Macbooks, iMacs, and Mac Pros often steal the limelight. Today is no different as it's other siblings again overshadow Apple's little niche baby. Still, if you're in the market for just a computer and already have a screen and peripherals, the Mac Mini is even more attractive. The Mac entry line still starts at $...
  • Apple iMac, Macbook, and Magic Mouse updates!
    by Mike
    Posted October 20th, 2009 at 11:37 am
    Where to start. I guess we'll lead of with the smallest and work our way up. Magic Mouse First on the line, the new Magic Mouse brings multi-touch/gesture to the mouse world. Operation is as one would expect, 2 finger swipes and pinches do all sorts of panning, zooming, and moving actions on your screen. The Mighty Mouse isn't so mighty anymore (was it ever?) Macbook The bargain basement Macbook, once $999, is still....$999. What happened to "newer" and "cheaper" products? To be fai...
  • Is “PC World” a new Macworld competitor?
    by Mike
    Posted August 28th, 2009 at 7:50 am
    Now I know PC World is not turning anytime soon. They started as a PC oriented magazine many years ago and to this day still are for the most part. Though a website with "PC" in the title and one that has had such a high focus on PC's and Windows related content declaring OS X 10.6 as the "brainiest, brawniest, and most beautiful consumer-oriented OS available anywhere" brings a chuckle to my lips. Even though Windows 7 isn't publicly available in final form yet, anyone that's a geek, espec...

    Many Apple fans alike will be upgrading their systems to Apple's new operating system, OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard today. While it will be a joyous occasion for most, some may be disheartened to know that some of their software titles may cease to work after the 'ol switcheroo. Just which Titles don't work? Well, you could check out the support document on Apple's site, or you could just Look at the image below and see for yourself. Did your favorite application make the cut? Of course more ...
  • Snow Leopard’s new found virus sniffer further detailed
    by Mike
    Posted August 27th, 2009 at 8:05 am
    Snow Leopard's official release is almost here. While bigger tech sites and other important figures got to take Leopard for an early test drive, more normal and lesser people like mwah are anxiously waiting for tomorrow. One feature of Snow Leopard that has so far gone under the radar is that of virus protection. Several people have found pop ups warning them of potential virus in email attacments or web downloads. How exactly does it work and is it really that effective? According to...
  • New Snow Leopard wallpapers make early entrance
    by Mike
    Posted July 27th, 2009 at 5:45 am
    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...
  • 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...
  • 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...
  • WWDC Highlights (Snow Leopard, Safari 4, iPhone 3GS/OS 3.0) [Extensive list]

    Posted June 8th, 2009 at 2:07 pm
    The opening WWDC keynote has just finished up and boy was it a doozy. There will be no fancy puns or clever plays on words. Just pictures and descriptions. The list is extensive, bring your pillow and blanket. Don't forget your drool cup either. Maybe, just maybe even some Prozac...(you'll find out why right inside.) (more...)...
  • 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...
  • Nvidia announces drivers for Windows 7 beta
    by Mike
    Posted March 2nd, 2009 at 1:57 pm
    In the push to make computers faster while at the same time making processors smaller and more efficient, actual processing in recent years has been making a move towards the GPU.  GPU processing has been hyped as freeing up the processor from handling mundane system tasks and instead letting the GPU take that over while the CPU does the heavy lifting of whatever programs you are running at the time.  Nvidia announced today that they have drivers ready for Windows 7 beta.  The new drivers...
