Why the Apple G4 Cube failed: cats!

02/21/08 | by Adam | Categories: Silly, Macintosh
Too bad he de-emphasized it as the reason in favour of cabling, but blogger bbum felt that one of the principal failings of Apple's G4 Cube was that of: having a flat topped, conveniently sized, surface on top of which things will be placed, will fall,… more »

Mounting Windows fileshares under OSX

02/12/08 | by Adam | Categories: Macintosh
I suspect this is old hat to most but the link is to a how-to on mounting remote Windows file systems under OSX. Leopard (Tiger too) does a decent job of allowing you to locate via the Finder machines on local subnets and workgroups. However it never… more »

Apple unveils the world's thinnest laptop case

Gizmodo pulls a funny. It probably makes more sense if you saw video of Steve Jobs' keynote from Macworld. (Via Midtoad) more »

The Leopard has landed

11/05/07 | by Adam | Categories: Macintosh
Radio Adam, after a recent outage, is back on the air and has migrated platforms again. Initially on Linux, then on Windows XP, it has migrated over to Leopard on a refurbished Mac Mini (the older PPC version, rather than the newer MacIntel variant.)… more »

Odd iTunes shortcoming

09/21/07 | by Adam | Categories: Music, Macintosh
Depending on the genre of music I want to listen to, I typically either want to listen to a random collection of individual tracks or a random selection of albums. For example, most rock and pop albums work best when excerpted so I like to use a song… more »

Apple's iPhoto Books

09/06/07 | by Adam | Categories: Technology, Macintosh
This probably isn't news to the true Mac'o'philes but it was for me: iPhoto, the photo manager that's part of the standard iLife suite included with every Mac, has the ability to generate books of photos. When I say books, I really do mean books and not… more »

Summary: stand-alone car navigation system I picked up a refurbished TomTom One earlier this year when Future Shop had a special on them. While it's worked pretty well inside the city of Calgary, I wanted to give it a good run for its money and the… more »

08/11/07 | by Adam | Categories: Macintosh
In one of the first sentences on the page describing the Mac Pro, "MyMacDealer" uses the unfortunate phrase: Fastest Mac ever. Well, I guess that's it over for the Macintosh. 3 GHz and it's never going to go faster. Ever. Fortunately though,… more »

New Boot Camp feature

06/12/07 | by Adam | Categories: Macintosh
While Parallels is the way I prefer to run XP on my MacBook these days, DF notes that Apple's Boot Camp windows environment now has a new feature that suspends OSX and BootCamp launch. Thus when you return, you can pick up where you left off rather than… more »

"Ready, Aye, Ready" was a slogan used by Canadian politicians to indicate Canada's willingness to assist the British Empire in any conflict. It remains in use as a motto for some of the Canadian military. It has almost nothing to do with the content of this blog.
