Add Storage: Toshiba Shows Off 750GB Laptop Drive
Every day we’re getting closer and closer to that 1TB drive in our laptops. Just a few months ago, I bought a 500GB drive for my MacBook Pro, figuring it was the fastest I could get in the size. That may only be true for so much longer. Toshiba is introducing a 2.5-inch, 5,400 RPM Read more…

Microsoft Messenger 8 Beta Available Now

Microsoft Messenger 8 Beta Available Now
It’s gotta be tough being a chat program for the Mac. Sure, Adium kicks ass and there are a few others too, but iChat is already built into the OS. Most people just log in there and away they go. No fancy sign up name, no special e-mail account, just good to go from the Read more…

MacJournal Comes to the iPhone
It wasn’t that long ago that we told you about the latest MacHeist sale, and one of the programs involved this time around was MacJournal.

It’s been talked about for a little while now, but Opera has been working on Opera Mini for the iPhone. Just yesterday they turned it in to the App store for consideration, and now they have a counter up on their blog – with a contest to boot, taunting Apple along the way. So the Read more…

Simulated Luxury for your iPad: XGear Carbon Leather Case

Simulated Luxury for your iPad: XGear Carbon Leather Case
Back in December, I first posted about a carbon fiber MacBook case designed to siphon cash out of your wallet and transplant your MacBook with metric tons of cool.

Just one year ago, Steve Jobs had a liver transplant, prolonging the life of a man that most people feel is solely responsible for changing the Apple world as we know it. For a long time there, we weren’t sure what was happening to him, or if he was even going to survive much longer, Read more…

Reading on Ibis

Reading on Ibis
I don’t have a Kindle, and while I save up for an iPad, I still need my reading fix. Lately, I’ve been doing it mostly at Ibis Reader, an “e-book reading system” that works on desktops, laptops and smartphones.

More Dock Love: DLO Wall Dock
I love me a good dock. I like them. They make my live neat and organized, which is the way I want things to go. Sure, my desk typically looks like Skeletor keeps a spare key, but docks help me keep things pretty and organized. When I someday buy an iPad, I’ll probably have a Read more…
