10 Snow Leopard Tips

Posted on 20 April 2014

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.

What’s Inside the Apple Ipad?

Posted on 17 April 2014

Tech specs and more features

 

Steve Jacob’s presentation of the Ipad from the NY Post.

Think of the iPad like the combination of all the things you love about Mac computers, the iPod touch and iTunes into one relatively small, light weight device.  With its Safari browser, you can read just about any eBook or books on kindle at lightning speed and get work done on its touch screen keypad anywhere.  iPad’s features include full screen versions of calendars, notes, to-do lists, viewing photos, watch YouTube videos, listen to your iTunes and more.

Read on for the technical specifications of the iPad from apple.com’s website.

iPod Boy, kid gets a new nickname

Posted on 14 April 2014

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?
