A new more magical mouse emerges

Posted on 10 October 2015


Now you will be able to click, swipe and scroll through your digital life on Mac. Touted as the worlds first multi touch mouse the device retails for US $69.00 ($99.00 AUS, go figure).

Check out the images below then head over to Apple for the pitch.

I have yet to try one but seems like a big improvement over the mighty mouse.

15-inch MacBook Pro, Mid 2009 Battery

Posted on 08 October 2015

Always a popular choice the next version of the MacBook Pro is ready to charge.

The battery follows suit from the 17inch MacBook Pro by including a non-removable battery. Not been able to swap out the battery will no doubt irk some road warriors but Apple is betting the saved space and the adaptive charging implemented will be enough to keep the peace. They are confident the battery will last 5 years before starting to lose capacity.

How long will it last you is the big question using the standard Nvidia 9400M you are looking at around 7 hours with about an hour less for the Nvidia 9600M GT.

To extend your short term battery life remember to dim your screen if possible and turn off Airport.

To extend the long term battery life make sure your battery is used regularly (having your MacBook always plugged in is not good for it’s battery).

Is the fact that you can’t swap out the battery going to sway anyone towards another model?

Created by a Dutch hacker this hack will display a message on your iPhone and direct you to where you were prompted for to make a 5 euro payment via Paypal. Apparently he later added the fix to the site for free after his Paypal was shutdown. A recent check of the site reveals (a url shortener) have removed the shortcut for “SPAM, PHISHING, AND/OR ABUSE”.  You can now access the fix for free at 


Both these hacks exploit the default password, so if you have jailbroken your iPhone we strongly suggest you change the SSH password if you haven’t already. Of course if you haven’t modified your iPhone you have nothing to worry about in either case.
