Sound of Silence: Apple Announces Updates

Steve Jobs is off on some island banging chicks and sipping margaritas. Meanwhile, COO Tim Cook announced lackluster updates for iMacs and Mac Minis today. The 24-inch iMac has new NVIDIA graphics, twice the memory and twice the storage and still only costs $1499. The Mac Mini also got an upgrade, scoring 5 USB ports, Firewire 800 and a variety ...

DIY Apple Netbook

Throwing OS X on a Hackintosh netbook is nothing new. Just grab an MSI Wind and follow one of the thousands of examples on the Internet. But it just won’t feel the same until people know you’re using an “Apple product.” That’s why some broke ass fanboy who owns an MSI Wind posted instructions on how to design and shape ...

Turn Your iPhone Into A Portable Disk

I love my iPhone 3G. I really do. I also loved my short-lived iPod Touch but that’s another story for another day. Anyway, one of the things I hate about the iPhone is how you can’t drag and drop files on to the device for storage. All that becomes fixed with iPhoneDisk and a filesystem appropriately titled MacFUSE. When you ...

Das Macboard

If you haven’t heard of the Das Keyboard, it’s a $100+ keyboard for your computer that features no writing on the keys. Thus, you’re supposed to become more efficient at typing, or so they claim. But what if we own a Mac? We don’t want some ugly navy blue keyboard near our precious Apple of California design. That’s why Steve ...

Here’s a bitchin’ application for Adobe Flash/Flex developers. It’s called MoteDaemon and it’s kind of like Matt Damon except it allows you to create Wiimote-controlled applications for OS X. Now, you too can create your very own sub par Nintendo Wii games for your Mac. To make your experience of making lousy games for old people and kids even easier, ...

Free and Legal Mac Software

I have to hand it to Macheist for really upping the ante this year. Normally, they’ll give away 10 or so solid applications for OS X in a bundle for around $20 to $50. This holiday season, you won’t be paying jack shit. Macheist has a Mac Giving Tree that gives out applications as presents. A few are currently available, ...

Prototype Macbook Air Surfaces On eBay

A MacRumors forum member purchased a used Macbook Air off eBay “as-is” and ended up getting a prototype model of the Macbook Air. The bottom is a black material and there’s no “Macbook Air” written on the screen’s bezel. It also features an interim build of Mac OS X 10.5. The buyer found out that the MBA was produced around ...

The OS X Finder Pillow Collection

Check out these cool Halloween-themed Finder icon pillows created by Etsy user THROWBOY, one of which claims the same name as the old orange Macs. The vampire? That’s “Count Macula.” The ghost, that’s the Spooker.” The Frankenstein, that’s the “Finderstein.” As for the pumpkin, it’s called the “Mac-O-Lantern.” Sound familiar? Of course it does. Instructables already gave you the know ...

Apple Netbook Leaked?

Found on Gizmodo, this above image is apparently a leaked picture of a new Mac netbook of some sort. Right now, this whole situation is kind of sketchy but it appears to be a legit photo from Apple that was spotted in the logs of a “unnamed search engine company.” What do you think? Real or fake? I tend to ...

Guts Of The Latest Macbook Pro

The new Macbooks are all the rave on the Internet. Even Vince and I can’t shut up about them. If you’re just as enthralled by all of this Mac-goodness as we are, then you’ll find the dismantling of the new Macbook Pro’s unibody by the crew of Ifixit.com to be very interesting. They go through the process of taking apart ...
