Meant to post this back when the article was first posted, but as it turns out, it’s still in a “coming soon” state. Basically, the project aims to create an open source gaming emulator that has the familiar native Macintosh interface.

This is how I’ve been doing my password management for probably the past five years, and highly recommend a solution similar. I can’t tell you how much of a fan I am of 1Password on both OS X and iOS. Totally worth the cash.
But remember, the biggest security flaw is yourself. Social engineering is by far the highest probability of your account getting compromised, and no password can save you from yourself.
Nice. This short list of games brings back a lot of old memories of PC gaming for me. Sim City 2000 and Syndicate especially were big hits and time guzzlers in my youth.
With the ousting of Apple’s Scott Forstall, and the subsequent reorganization that put Jonny Ive in charge of all things design at Apple, the skeuomorphic design elements in iOS and OS X that so many of us lothe should drop to the way side in the future.
But if you don’t want to wait until then, I found a great little tweaks app — with flavors both for Lion and Mountain Lion. It does some great little tweaks to optimize and clean up the look and feel of the latest two OS X versions.
I love these type of tweaking apps. You can do some nice things like removing the leather from the Contacts and Calendar apps, show the hidden Library folder, hide spotlight search, just to name a few. Sure, all these can be done via Terminal, but the GUI makes it super simple and fast to toggle this stuff on and off.
My work and home computers are now all updated to OS X Mountain Lion. Found the below article had a lot of things I didn’t know about Apple’s newest OS update:
I’ve always been legit with the Mac’s I’ve owned — all four of them: a PowerMac G5, Macbook, and a pair of iMacs, but I’ve always been tempted to build a Hackintosh.
Before I came to the Mac-side, I was a big PC guy, and built my fair share of PCs for myself and friends. It used to be significantly cheaper to build your own from your own components — and get a higher quality machine.
That’s not as true any more as PC builders are selling computers with razor-sharp margins. But, in the world of the Macintosh, machines still are a bit overpriced. Plus, in the case of the high-end desktop Mac Pro, they haven’t done any substantial updates in years.
Maybe, one day, I’ll use a guide like the one below (which I stumbled across on Lifehaker) to build a super high-end machine. But for the time being, my iMac will suffice just fine.
No real surprises — OS X Mountain Lion is out today. I’m going to wait a few weeks to make sure all the apps I use regularly are fully compatible, and probably for the first update for Mountain Lion to come out.
But at $20, seems like a no-brainier, as long as your Macs are new enough to support the newest OS.
Preference files are the core to personalizing any OS X app. This article does a great job on breaking down the importance of preference files — and should make you very aware of regularly backing those files up. You are doing the rule of 3-2-1 backups, right?
