10 Snow Leopard Tips

Posted on 24 May 2015

1. You don’t need to have Leopard already.

Yep don’t think you need the full box set. You can just purchase Snow Leopard to upgrade from Tiger. Also if you bought your Mac on or after June 8th you can get Snow Leopard for $10 on the Apple up to date scheme.

2. Traveller clock

Go into Date and time preferences and you can check "Set time zone automatically using current location”. Perfect for those that travel around a lot with their Mac. Third party apps will also be able to take advantage of location support.

3. 64bit my Mac

If you want to boot into 64-bit mode hold the 6 and 4 keys on startup. 64bit programs will start up slightly faster in this mode.

4. All you Sync belong to us

You can now Sync your Google and Yahoo accounts via Address Book > Preferences, Accounts tab. iCal will now syncs with Google and Yahoo Calendar. Also of course it now supports Microsoft Exchange servers one of the biggest features of the upgrade.

5. Where is my Clean Install

Sounds like Apple had more than a few people call up and complain about where the #$@$ there data was. So you can no longer select the friendly sounding clean install instead you will have to go to Utilities > Disk Utility.

6. Check scanner and printer support

Not much more annoying than not being able to print so you might want to make sure your printer and scanner are supported before you upgrade. There is also a new auto update feature for printer drivers so when your printer is supported you should be set.

7. Boot camp buffed

You can now view your Windows files and vice versa your Mac files while in Windows. Handy although restricted to read only access for now (will keep an eye out for hacks around this).

8. Give me my hard drive back

Results vary but you will definitely claim back hard drive space by upgrading between 5-10GB.

9. Wardriving just got easier

When you go to select a wifi network you will now get a handy icon next to the connection name showing the signal strength.

10. Wake up

You can now wake servers when data is needed if they are in sleep mode.

iPod Boy, kid gets a new nickname

Posted on 19 May 2015

A boy with an iPod surgically inserted into his arm has suffered terrible injuries when it overheated in the Humid Sydney Summer.

Just kidding the story is in fact a lot less about iPod’s and a lot more about a nine year old Sydney kid walking through a glass door.

The story doesn’t mention what model the iPod was if it had video that he was possibly watching. He is now thankfully in a stable condition :>.

Although we are still a bit puzzled what this has to do with a mutant iPod Boy maybe it’s a new ad campaign Can’t remember where your glass door is? there’s an app for that or maybe they meant Mutant drug dealing rapper?

Hacks, iPhone

Jailbroken iPhone hackers

Posted on 16 May 2015

 

iPhone users who have jailbroken their iPhones are starting to find out all the protection was for something after all! There have been several viruses seen in the wild. From rick rolling your wallpaper to charging you money to fix your iPhone!

Everyone loves a good Rick Roll (not)!

Note this worm can only infect your phone if you have left the default ‘alpine’ password, so is fairly low security risk. Created by Australian hacker ‘ikee’.

All your iPhones are belong to us

Created by a Dutch hacker this hack will display a message on your iPhone and direct you to doiop.com/iHacked 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 http://doiop.com/ (a url shortener) have removed the shortcut for “SPAM, PHISHING, AND/OR ABUSE”.  You can now access the fix for free at http://mr09.fileave.com/

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.

The fix in anycase is here and http://mr09.fileave.com/
