It’s now 3GS without a space

Posted on 02 March 2017 by Katie

Rumor has it that Apple has changed the spelling of their newest iPhone just days after its release.

Following some controversy over the initial spelling which was 3G S, Apple has now changed its material to fit the new spelling 3GS. Not a big deal, but makes you wonder what was the reason behind this sudden and silent change. Is it for legal purposes or for the name to be more search engine optimized?

What do you think is the reason behind this change?

Man & Machine hold Mighty Mouse trademark!

Posted on 20 January 2017 by Couchy

imageHere is a good trick rent out a name which you don’t actually own even though you have a cartoon mouse by the same name. Apple was formerly licensed to use the name by CBS but last year a Man and Machine sued both for using the name.

CBS still owns the rights to use it for the cartoon mouse version but Man & Machine own the name when dealing with computer Mice. They make waterproof & silent keyboards, perfect for use in the bathtub…or spilling drinks all over. On their website you can indeed see a product called Mighty Mouse 5.

Now that Man & Machine own the rights it is unclear if Apple is going to attempt to license the name from them or look at a new name for its upcoming mouse range.

Looking forward to a new mouse from Apple I think the Mighty Mouse is one of the weakest accessories that Apple offer. How many of you use them? they are so overpriced, much better mice available for less. For now though it seems like the “Adventures of Mighty Mouse” continue….

A new more magical mouse emerges

Posted on 16 January 2017 by Couchy

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.

10 Snow Leopard Tips

Posted on 12 January 2017 by Couchy

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.
