The Watering Hole - Taxonomy for Dummies

The Watering Hole - Taxonomy for Dummies
By James Turner

Actually, all the OS X releases so far have come from subfamily Patherinae (yes, lions are panthers, evidently). There's only two members of the subfamily left after Lion, from genus Neofelis, and they're both mouthfuls. Maybe Apple will move outside the subfamily, Cougar sounds pretty cool...

Shortly after installing Snow Leopard I saw the first evidence of the new location services built into the operating system. I got the new version of Clarke, a Fire Eagle updater. After the install a window appeared that asked me if I wanted to share my location with an application. Finally! So how is Apple doing it? The same they do on the iPhone.

A week ago last Friday, Apple unleashed Snow Leopard (aka OS X 10.6) on the world. So far, there haven't been many rumblings either way, although the trade press has been generally kind. We thought it might be a good idea to check in with Chris Seibold, author of the upcoming Pocket Guide for Snow Leopard, to get his take on how things have been going.

Snow Leopard, the latest iteration of Mac OS X, arrived on August 28th. Whenever a new operating system arrives we have to research our applications before upgrading. (Don't forget that Windows 7 is coming at the end of October so our Windows colleagues will be facing this very soon as well.) Luckily, it seems, that Lightroom 2.4 and the Creative Suite 4 applications will run under Snow Leopard. John Nack has posted an FAQ regarding the Creative Suite 4 applications on his blog.

Fair or unfair, Apple has done such a good job of delivering technical wizardry over the years that when they merely execute, we hammer them because...well, we expect magic. With that in mind, this analysis of Apple's WWDC Keynote yesterday tries to make sense of the key storylines likely to play out for Apple in the coming months.

I don't think the Mac-LEGO Mindstorms NXT connection gets enough web-print. So, I finally took the time to play with LEGO Mindstorms NXT and an Intel-based Macbook connected using Bluetooth. The result was a lot of fun! :-)

I hate the slim Mac aluminum keyboard. Unfortunately, Leopard seems to dislike my Microsoft keyboard. Do I have to buy a Logitech? Sigh.

Mac OS X Leopard DNS whackiness got to the point where I couldn't get anything done on my Macs. So, I hopped on a Windows PC and did more research. Here's the workaround I found for Leopard's network weirdness.

Overlapping System Files: Am I Hosed?

By David Battino
March 14, 2008

I wonder if my Mac can read my mind. It often crashes late at night when it's time for both of us to go to sleep. Last night, it crashed just as I hit Command-S to save a big project I'd been working on. But this time, it wouldn't reboot. I popped in the usually miraculous DiskWarrior CD, booted from...
