  1. InsanelyMac at Macworld 2006

    Lol @ this thread. I'm actually booked to go to this year's event too. I don't think I'll be doing another video report, what with the last one being slightly lame, and me still not having a decent cameraman. We had a heck of a load of footage which got cut due to various technical issues. Like my then-cameraman not having quite grasped the concept of focusing on JUST ONE THING, DAMMIT! So yeah. Last year's video sucked. Maybe doing a decent one this year is a reason to try again. Maybe not.
  2. MacPro Overclock

    No actual overclocking seems to be going on there. Just CPU replacement.
  3. Which Vista?

    No it absolutely is not. The Vista EULA totally prohibits using Windows Vista Home Basic and Home Premium at all in a virtual machine.
  4. Leopard on PowerPC Macs as alternative Os

    That won't help you run iPartition.
  5. Leopard on PowerPC Macs as alternative Os

    No, iPartition is not destructive. That's the point of the product. Additionally, IIRC, the instructions in that other thread will only work on GPT discs, which means PowerPC Macs are out of luck. iPartition is the way ahead for you, but you will need to boot off another volume in order to use it on your boot volume.
  6. Mac OS X 10.4.10 Released

    And... done. I realised that before even coming back to the thread when I kept typing 10.4.9 by mistake in an IM window. I thought "I wonder if I did that on the forum...".
  7. Apple has just released version 10.4.10 of Mac OS X. The update can now be downloaded from Software Update, or from Apple's website. Updates included in 10.4.10 include: * Bluetooth Audio Fix * RAW Image Support * USB Device Fixes * Security Updates Read More

  9. Alex's (Belated) Release Roundup

    Again, this is available as a part of Coherence in Parallels.
  10. WWDC Roundup

    Indeed, not a word. But then there are "over 300" new features, and Steve only mentioned 10 of them. This is a very useful link. Lists more than the keynote did, including official confirmation of an AppleTV-esque Front Row. Think I'll add the link to the article.
  11. WWDC Roundup

    Yes, apologies for the slight delay. It's my sister's birthday, so I was out! As for Leopard, I totally agree. Shaping up to be a great release, in my opinion.
  12. WWDC Roundup

    Steve Jobs has just finished his WWDC keynote, and so it's time for InsanelyMac's roundup of the biggest Apple news from this year's conference! Gaming EA have announced that they are to return to publishing games for the Mac. Command and Conquer 3, Battlefield 2142, Need For Speed Carbon, and Harry Potter & the Order of the Phoenix will be released for the Mac in July, with Madden 08 and Tiger Woods 08 also due for release. EA have announced that future games will see simultaneous releases for the Mac with their PC versions. Leopard Apple announced several as-yet unseen interface enhancements for Leopard, including a new dock and menu bar. The Finder has also been updated with an iTunes-esque sidebar and coverflow mode. Improved integration with .mac brings the "Back To My Mac" feature, allowing .mac subscribers to send files to their Mac from any Internet-connected Mac. "Stacks" was also introduced, bringing a new method for file and application organisation. Check out a summary of Leopard's new features here. iPhone Release Date, And Developer Tools Apple announced that the iPhone would be released on June 29th in the United States. It was also announced that third-party developers would be able to develop limited applications for the iPhone, which would run within the mobile version of Safari. Safari For Windows Perhaps the biggest and most surprising announcement, Safari is being released for Windows XP and Vista systems. Citing their expertise with bringing iTunes to millions of Windows users, Apple believes it has a fair shot at the PC browser market, and hopes to offer PC users another glimpse into the benefits of Apple software. Both Mac and Windows users can take part in the Safari 3 Beta, free of charge.

  14. Alex's (Belated) Release Roundup

    Do you mean it can be moved elsewhere, or that you can choose to not display it? If the latter, Parallels can do this too. I think we need to have some sort of Parallels V VMWare review at some point. This should wait until VMWare is out of Beta, though.
  15. Alex's (Belated) Release Roundup

    I was under the impression that was a clone of Coherence on Parallels. Or am I missing something? That's pretty much my point. "Me Too!", said VMWare...
