    Running Windows on your Mac

    I just posted this over on MacRumors, but I'll post here for discussion. Here's how I understand it: First: Macs use EFI (Extensible Firmware Interface), which is open source. EFI is the modern replacement for BIOS. EFI does support legacy BIOS, however it's up to the distributor (Apple) to...

    Microsoft is now distributing Flip4Mac's WMV QuickTime components for free! Previously shareware, Flip4Mac's WMV software makes WMV and WMA playback on the Mac transparent. This is huge news!

    Disk Mode

    I'm testing my iPod, and noticed when disk mode is disabled, and you connect your iPod to your computer with iTunes not open, the iPod is setup as if disk mode is enabled. But with iTunes open, it behaves fine. It's as if the settings for disk mode being off only apply when iTunes is open...

    GCC Missing Header File

    I'm trying to compile some code in cygwin in Windows, and it's trying to include <ar.h>. This header exists at /usr/include/ but GCC doesn't see it, it just says I tested the exact same code on my Mac and it worked fine: Is there something I have to do in GCC or somewhere else to let it know...

    Shuffle's USB = Dead

    OK I think my shuffle's USB connection is dead. When I connect it to my Mac, my PC or another PC, it won't connect. But just the other day it was working fine on my Mac! The shuffle works fine and plays music like normal, but I can't connect it to any computer :( I tried resetting it, but I'm...

    Why use Linux?

    I'm extremely bored right now and am downloading Ubuntu 5.1 Live CD (for PPC) and was wondering for those of you who use Linux and Mac OS X: Why do you use Linux if you have Mac OS X? What applications do you run in Linux that you can't (or do not want to?) run in OS X? Also, do you run...

    Mono and Visual Studio .NET

    If I compile a C# .NET console application on my PC, will it run without changes on my Mac with Mono installed? Or how about the opposite - if I compile a console app in Mono on my Mac, will it run in Windows without changes? (I could experiment but I'm lazy :p)

    iPod Crowd - add iTunes?

    How about adding iTunes to the "iPod Crowd" forum? The iPod and iTunes are one and the same virtually now.. it would make sense to put them together under the same topic. What do you think? :)

    PowerMac G3 Won't Turn On

    I have an old PowerMac G3 I use for software testing running 10.3.9. Yesterday I was downloading/installing some security update, and the power went out. Today was the first time I went to turn it back on, and nothing happens at all when I push the power button :(. I tried a few different...

    Will Sell for x86 PowerBook

    Here's the deal. If Apple releases a dual core x86 PowerBook next year that dual boots with XP/Vista without issues, I will seriously consider selling my PM G5 and my PC for it. I used to use my PC for gaming (bought a $400 GPU for it), but I've really only been playing one game on it, and...
