Mac OS X 10.6.7 available in Software Update (TUAW.com)

Mar 21st 2011 5:25PM Waiting to try this on my 2010 13" MBP, but I'll go ahead and update my Hackintosh rig. Less mission-critical work, and full disk backup.

The current state of Mac use in higher education (TUAW.com)

Nov 15th 2010 12:39PM Fellow Bobcat here, in Russ College of Engineering. I see a few Macs in the EECS dept. Professors love them too, I have several that use all Macs.

Go down to the library, and all you see are Macs. I was strolling around last night, trying to find a place to study, and I saw a sea of MacBooks on the 2nd floor.

TUAW Review and giveaway: BackPack for iMac and Cinema Display (TUAW.com)

Dec 5th 2009 6:58PM My dad just got a new 27" iMac, and I'm inheriting his old iMac G5, so this would be a great addition to a (still) great computer! I'd use it for my main Time Machine backup drive, and maybe even try to stack a few more on it.

Rumor: MacBook Pro Intel Arrandale processors in January (TUAW.com)

Dec 3rd 2009 11:42PM How will these procs with 4 threads compare to a Core 2 Quad? Will it be like having a pseudo quad core processor, or more like a Core 2 Duo?

I ask because if I'm going to replace my black MacBook with a new MBP, I'd like to have quad-core of some sort.

Aspire 1420p tablet cameos on Acer's US site, at Chinese press event (Engadget)

Oct 23rd 2009 11:12AM Just FYI, if it's like the newer 1410 that just got released with Win7, then it has a DUAL-CORE Celeron 2300. Ignore the name, it's basically a stripped down ULV Core 2 Duo with less cache. Twice as fast as the original Core 2 Solo that came with the earlier 1410, and a hell of a lot faster than an Atom proc in any netbook.
