So How Do You Find Snow Leopard?

Aesthetically-wise, there really isn’t any difference between Snow Leopard and Leopard, Mac OS X 10.6 and 10.5 respectively. And without spending enough time to go over all the promised new features and improvements (see the reviewer’s guide here), I can say Snow Leopard brings speed and responsiveness improvements out of the gate. At the very least, that new Quicktime feature allowing screencast creation on the fly is a really great addition. It, as a friend says, will probably kill most of Screenflow’s current market.

Another good impression Snow Leopard makes is the price of the upgrade, which for a single-user license …read more

See, Even Mac OS X Can Make Life Hard

So someone wanted to replace his eMac keyboard with another keyboard, sans the Eject Key. And he thoughtfully asks “Is there a keyboard sequence, hot key, whatever that will open the drive”? Guess what the solution was!
blockquote>Go to the root of your hard drive (double-click on it) and open System: Library: CoreServices: Menu Extras. Inside that window, double-click on the icon called Eject.menu.

So Hypocritical Apple!

So you come out with a new ad, in response to your competitor’s attempts to change perceptions over a much-maligned product. Do you concentrate on your strengths, re-highlight your competitor’s weaknesses, or simply go with a cleverly-worded lie?
Reportedly, Apple decided to go for the latter. In a recent ad, they implied that Microsoft spent more money on marketing their products, rather than improving them. According to WinGeek: “…since Apple brought it up, they spend only .7 cents less per sales $1 on Advertising than Microsoft and spend a fraction of what Microsoft spends on improving its products.” For every dollar …read more

A Small MacBook Under $600

A pretty simple—if somewhat overused—premise. Why not hack an Asus Eee PC 1000H so that it can run on supposedly the best OS around, Mac OS X?
Easier done than said. The staff of The Cult of Mac is probably going apeshit over their newest toy, an Asus Eee PC 1000H that runs on Mac OS X. Interesting how those dock icons practically fill-up the entire low-resolution screen. And what about performance?
“Performance is on par with my MacBook,” says Gilbertson. “Benchmark-wise, I think it comes in around the equivalent of a G5.”
Ha Apple! Expect mass defections as people decide to go …read more
