Goldtouch Fully Adjustable Mac Keyboard

If you spend hours in front of your computer like me, chances are you’re already feeling the stress on your wrists, arms and back because of prolonged keyboard use. It’s even worse when you’re using a laptop and you sit with a wrong posture when typing. If you think your joints deserve better, you should Read more…

The MacBook Pro is Not a Laptop

I had been familiar with the running joke that Apple notebooks are no longer marketed as “laptops” these days because they give off just too much heat for the average person’s lap to handle. I only realized it was also Apple’s position–somewhat–when I chanced upon a post on technopinoy.com citing Apple’s own MacBook Pro Care Read more…

Look Ma! No On/Off Switch!

Following a post I made a while back on ForeverGeek citing comments that Windows Vista has too many options for shutting down, I’ve been thinking about how Apple designed the iPod to have no power button.

But for those who need multiple Operating Systems Read more…

Belkin TuneFM Review

I wasn’t really planning to get an iPod anytime soon, but all my siblings were snapping up latest-generation iPods of their own (2 second-gen Shuffles, one second-gen Nano, and one fifth-generation/Video). They got theirs cheap because of educational discounts (about 20% off) so I was actually considering riding on their discount since I no longer Read more…

MacSlash reports that corrupted .DMG files can be used to run arbitrary code on OS X. The Month of Kernel Bugs project has just proof of concept, where they tested this on an up-to-date installation of OS X on an Intel-powered production Mac. Corrupt .dmg files are not properly processed by the kernel driver responsible Read more…

Jason O’ Grady writes on ZDNet how you can significantly lower heat dissipation on your Core Duo powered MacBook or MacBook Pro by reducing the CPU voltage. By lowering the voltage to the processor you can not only drastically lower the heat dissipation, but also increase the battery time significantly. There are, believe it or Read more…
