Mr. Xtreme
Teaser Paragraph:

nVIDIA's first Pascal card has been released: the GTX 1080

and now I'm sure the risk takers are trying them out in their hackintosh's, so I'm going to go over Pascal (I'm going to use the GTX 1080 as a reference, as the 1070 isn't released, correct me if I'm wrong) and check the features, and some info on hackintosh compatibility!
Specs first
New Pascal architecture (Duh)
8GB GDDR5X memory
2560 CUDA cores
1607MHz base clock speed
320GB/s memory bandwidth
16 nm manufacturing process
Pricing is quite a bit over $600 USD as they are selling a founders version mostly right now, so that price will get cheaper.

Now some of the mains points of pascal are:
Low power consumption
16 nm manufacturing process (vs the 28 nm of nVIDIA's previous "Maxwell" architecture.
and high power performance

Now I'm not here to so much do a review on the video card, I'm more checking out the stuff that hackintoshers are interested in,
so that brings us to OS X compatibility:
OS X 10.11.0 to 10.11.6: None
OS X 10.10.0 to 10.0.5: None
OS X 10.9.0 to 10.9.5: None

The list goes on, pascal (Which means GTX 1080, and 1070) have no support in OS X at all! If you are a die hard, then by all means go and enjoy a low resolution, crumby performance, and no HDMI audio, etc. Devs, go for it if you want to try to get it to work on OS X.
To sum it all up, the pascal line of cards doesn't work yet, and It'll be awhile till they are, buy a 980, and the best intel i7 CPU you can find if you are willing to fork out that much cash.

Teaser Paragraph:

Apple's WWDC 2016 announced for June 13-17...

and it's Siri who's in charge of announcing this time...

We assume that the Moscone West hall will be chosen as a place, as usual. During the conference, Apple is expected to present iOS 10, watchOS 3, tvOS 10, (OS X)MacOS 10.12 and other novelties.
What do you expect of this WWDC?

Teaser Paragraph:

According to a recent report from british Hackintosh Group "Hack'nTod", Apple's next os will be called "macOS"

According to a recent report from british Hackintosh Group "Hack'nTod", Apple's next os will be called "mac
OS", and for good reason. Apple's next OS a merge is going to be a of iOS and OS X! The result? A new OS that will replace OS X, and iOS. "macOS" will run on both Apple's ARM CPUs and Intel's CPUs! However, considering how, once Apple switched from PowerPC to intel, it only supported PowerPC for two more OS X versions before pulling PowerPC support.
All in all, the hackintosh scene is in trouble...
If you believed the above, then....
April Fools!

Teaser Paragraph:

iOS, tvOS, watchOS and ... macOS, a next back-to-the-future move for Apple?

After the recent Pike R. Alpha discovery about new "MacBook 9,1" frequency data in the latest OS X 10.11.4 release, this time a new reference to "macOS" has been discovered by another developer Guilherme Rambo.

The framework can be found in OS X 10.11.4 at
"/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/FlightUtilities.framework" and was later independently verified by MacMagazine, which speculated that the next release could be "macOS 11" instead of OS X 10.12.
What do you think?

A major upgrade for Pandora's Box is available with some new functionalities:

Support Topic: Pandora's Box III

Code re-done from scratch, two new apps called Ares and Webkintosh:

bootloaders configurator for both Enoch and Clover. Can edit the config.plist entirely with some facilities (as well for o.c.B.p, kernel.plist and SMBios.plist).
Clover WIKI is embedded in the config Editor to have quick access to the instructions and examples. Ability to update Enoch and Clover to latest revision available w/o update the entire app.
Ares can install the bootloader by targeting any ESP you have directly or in congiunction with the target Volume.
You can drag your config.plist directly into the Pandora's Box window, Ares will be automatically opened. What remain is to edit it and save where you like! Zeus

is now specialized in kexts installation from a large selection, but also permit you to drag your kexts (into the Pandora's interface) and let you decide where to install:
in any supported filesystems, in different volumes, but is also able to install in the target volume and its ESP at same time.
Support installation in
/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other - 10.X (and an all OEM sub directories),
...again at same time! Hermes
now produces two kind of installers, one with "restore" method, other with "createinstallmedia".

Both are untouched installers (Vanilla), and no kexts are added, nor the bootloader. WebKinTosh

a web browser to navigate hot Topics on insanelymac. Use YouTube API to show videos and users can make its own on "how to" do things using Pandora's Box. Hera
