Firemint’s Real Racing Game

Posted on 25 April 2016

For anyone who enjoys a good game on the go, Firemint’s Real Racing is now available for the iPhone and iPod touch. The people at Firemint are behind mobile games such as Need for Speed: Most Wanted, The Fast and the Furious: Fugitive and FIA World Rally Championships.

This game has been praised for it’s attention to detail and ability to act as a simulator. It features 36 cars, 12 tracks and five different game modes. Steering is controlled depending on preference, via tilt or touch. Other than the cool graphics it can also show up to six cars on the screen at once. Another great feature is the ability to interact with other players by posting playbacks directly on YouTube from the phone.

Have any of you played this game?

10 Snow Leopard Tips

Posted on 23 April 2016

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.

Bad news for blokes

Posted on 22 April 2016

Sorry guys, looks like the iPhone app Hottest Girls has been pulled out from the Apple Store. Seems like the application was getting too raunchy for Apple when it started posting nude and topless photos of models.

What’s your opinion boys and girls?

Running Mac OSX on a Netbook the lowdown

Posted on 19 April 2016

 

Apple has yet to enter the Netbook space, no doubt they have something in the works but users not content to wait have taken things into their own hands. Depending on what Netbook you have you may have to sacrifice some functionality but overall some like the HP Mini 1000 or a Dell Mini 9/Vostro A90 are quite comprehensive in their support of OSX.

Installing on non Mac hardware likely infringes Apple’s end user license agreement so don’t expect any official support. Check out this compatibility chart to see what your Netbook can do.

If you run into any problems you can get support over at the Hackintosh forums.
