    Linux now surpasses Mac OS in terms of market-share... Apparently Linux now surpasses Mac OS in terms of market-share. I don't think this means anything major really, and since OS X is basically a *NIX variant, I think it's a good thing. But it is still interesting. -B

    Tropico - the worst Mac OS X port ever!

    I just bought Tropico for the Mac today, and I am very disappointed. Despite having a machine far more powerful than the requirements, the game is simply unplayable. The animation is choppy (even with all the options turned off), and the game paused every other minute as if thinking. It's an...

    My Birthday Present for Myself!!!

    Since I am going back to school to get my Masters in two months, I decided it's a good time to trade up from my iBook to a more powerful machine that could last me for two years. So I ponied up the cash and got myself a new DVI PowerBook G4. I drove like a madman to the nearest Apple Store this...

    New TiBook - no more IR port?

    Sis anyone else notice that the IR port on the PowerBook G4 is gone? I guess now we have BlueTooth it's not that big of a deal, but still, it was pretty handy for syncing Palms on the run. -B

    Please upgrade PowerBook's LCD resolution!!!

    Hey Apple, I think it's about time for upgrading the resolution on PowerBook's LCD. Most high end notebooks on the PC side have SXGA+ resolutions. What's the point of having a 15.2" LCD when it does little better than XGA. If you refuse to include the higher resolution screen as default...

    Using IrDA and cellphone to connect to the net?

    Is it possible to use the IrDA port on a TiBook to connect to the net via a cellphone? Mainly I am thinking of the Ericsson T28World with the DI28 IrDA module, or a Nokia phone with IrDA. I went to Nokia site and I see they have connection software for PCs, but I see in my OS X's modem string...

    Please don't switch all iBooks to larger form factor!!!

    Apple, Please don't switch all iBooks to larger form factor! I love the size and portability of the 12.1" iBook! I agree that the screen can be bigger, but can you move to 13" inch screens but still retain the form size? I know a lot of the people like the compact iBook for its (almost)...
