In the past this was a difficult task on Leopard. It required *gasp* the purchase of software. Typically I am against that, but if the software is good, or performs a task that there is no free alternative for, I’ll buy it.

This was the case with Spanning Sync. I want […]

If you’re looking for something to live for, go check this out. They did the Mars scene! Look at that Rorschach! That’s what I’m talking about!

Just as a quick update to some previous entries, Delicious Library 2 by Delicious Monster is now shipping. Definitely worth checking out if you haven’t yet, with some really nice new features over the original (and yes, there’s an upgrade path). Enjoy!

The information regarding Snow Leopard (aka, OS X 10.6) is still pretty sparse, and has received little media attention compared to the 3G iPhone. That said, Apple’s Snow Leopard page is now live, and highlights some pretty neat tech. It should be pretty exciting to see what’s being done with Grand Central and OpenCL, though I suspect it’ll be a while before we see anything live. From reading about what’s planned, it sounds like 10.6 will primarily be focused around the “fit and finish” of the operating system, adding polish, speed, and reliability to the new technologies they’ve been piling into OS X with each new update. The last time we had a “polish” release was 10.1, so I’d say it’s due.

(For the server-geeks out there, the 10.6 Server page is here.)

To begin with someone close to the 3G iPhone project has mentioned that it should be released sometime next month. 3G should finally bring full fledged high speed internet to the phone, which some people have been waiting for. Also there may be a different color of the iPhone on the horizon, don’t get to […]

Engadget posted some new iPhone rumors over here….

The first thing people will notice: the 2nd gen iPhone will be about the same size and shape as the first gen.
It will, of course, have 3G. And proper GPS!
The most noticeable physical difference is back of the phone is no longer metal — the whole thing is glossy black, from top to bottom. The volume buttons are now chrome.
Because it’s got a little less metal to deal with, it doesn’t have quite as many angular edges. The battery is (still) not removable.
The phone itself will be slightly thicker than the first gen device.
The headphone jack will no longer be recessed, and will finally be flush with the body.
The device itself uses roughly the same size and resolution screen as the first generation product.
No solid word on battery life or storage capacity.

I’ve been looking for some better ways to do things recently. I found two pretty cool apps that make computer life a little simpler.

If I’m anything like you, I’m sure you have one too many email addresses. I recently started looking for a way to consolidate several of them to my gmail address. I’m sure like you too you’ve got that old hotmail address sitting around that you still check every so often. Now if you’ve searched for a solution to forward hotmail easily, there isn’t one. Microsoft does allow you to forward your address to other Microsoft owned sites, but what good is that.
