In the year 1983…
July 22, 2009

One Flickr user has done one hell of a job making this Photoshop mock-up. It’s bascially as if Apple had their webpage in 1983. What would it look like? Good job on the BASIC up top. However I really wish I could take a tour with the Lisa. ::sigh::

iTunes Fail!

I guess iTunes doesn’t understand the meaning of the word, Free.


Apple improves battery life… for some
May 18, 2009

Apple released 10.5.7 last week and besides the usual bug fixes and this being the last major update until Snow Leopard it also improved on something near and dear to my heart. My hackintosh’s battery life. Apparently this update will give your netbook a bit of a boost in battery.

It has been confirmed by numerous users over in the MSi Wind forum I frequent regularly. One user reports he use to get about a 3.5 hour charge on his 6-cell battery, now he receives almost 6. What a jump! I have yet to take the plunge and update but with this bit of news, I can’t wait take the plunge!

But here is something to think about, why is all of sudden Apple thinking about Atom based netbooks? Hmmmm… let us hope!!

For some of you who are using a Wind to do your dirty work, here are a couple of links to get through the update if you haven’t already…

##Update## Running 10.5.7 right now and can say that it does in fact pro long the battery life just a bit more. Using a 3 cell battery and getting about an extra 20 minutes or so.

Is this normal?

This is the real deal. Apparently if your iPhone overheats, you’ll get this error.

From Apple’s own iPhone Knowledge base…

“Operate iPhone 3G in a place where the temperature is between 0º and 35º C (32º to 95º F) … If the interior temperature of iPhone 3G exceeds normal operating temperatures, you may experience [the] Temperature warning screen.”

Well if you do get this, you could always play hot potato with it until it cools down. = P
