Squeeze every ounce of bandwidth out of your broadband connections with Broadband Tuner 1.0. The post date from Apple is November 2005, so it is a bit dated. Here’s the Apple download page.
Remy Sharp has compiled a nice list to help P.C. owners in transition to Macs. Click here.
All things in moderation seems the mantra that holds true at the end of the day. Yet we Mac owners have that one yearn. Omnipresence. In a perfect world we would see the Mini Mac come to true fruition and be done with all the unanswered questions. Till then, try this you intrepid Apple Owners.
Can another Apple Laptop remote control your new laptop ? Yes, unless you “lock” in your remote. You can “pair” your remote with your Mac so that only your remote will work with it. The way to do this is to point the remote about 3 inches away from the Apple logo on the front of your Mac (or for the Macbooks the infra-red receiver) and then press and hold the Menu and Next/Fast-forward buttons simultaneously on the remote for 5 seconds. Want your remote to do more ? Try this.
Here’s a site for you intrepid Apple owners who like to fix your own computers. I’ve used this site on occasion and was very impressed with the straight forward simple instructions. A word of advice. Lock yourself in a room when you start ripping the guts out your Apple. Why? When you find you have less screws than the ones you took out, you can’t blame anyone but yourself. Here ya go!
From my good friends blog site, Emmas Friends. I ran across a great information site that has probably got the easiest instructions on how to set up a VNC to access to someone else’s computer. If you have friends or family that are a bit challenged in understanding how anything electrical works, this will save you a lot of time and a ton of frustration. VNC set up and support is built into Tiger, so instead of dumping a lot of money into something like Apples Remote Desk Top application give this a try first. Click here. “Save Gas, Use VNC” !!!!! btw, I’ll be back later this week with a follow up after a VNC test run.
“The legend of the 10-minute Martini” I’ve tried a few martinis in my life time. They’ve run the gamut from Lemon Drops to Frank Sinatra’s favorite the “Burnt Martini”. When I ran across Bingo’s perfect assignment of investigating the “Legend” martini I was skeptical. Here’s the direct link.
At the store today I saw two kids jump out of a rust bucket Toyota that was tricked out with ginky summer job money items. The driver then made a show of aiming his key fob at this $2,000 p.o.c. and hit the car alarm that responded with that familiar bird getting goosed sound. I think the car alarm was just a bit much for what he was driving. Lets look at that same amount of money that is invested in your new Mac laptop. Would you be willing to install a similar device with the same obnoxious bird chirp? Would you use it in a crowded coffee shop if you were walking away from your laptop? I guess in some places it’s needed. There’s something disturbing about this. I just can’t place what it is. Here’s a link to the iAertU, video. Another sensor alarm made by Orbicule is called Theftsensor. And you can always step up to the James Bond level of security by using a program called “Undercover“.
