Apple: Boot Camp Beta set to expire any day now (Download Squad)

Oct 3rd 2007 4:19AM What does that mean for me and my combined Boot Camp/Parallels partition? I generally only boot the partition in Parallels, installing it via Boot Camp was just for trying out Windows natively. Will this partition still work in Parallels after the Boot Camp beta has expired? Seeing as I don't use the Boot Camp software, I'd like to think that I'm safe!

Apple picks O2 for UK, T-Mobile for Germany? (Engadget)

Jul 5th 2007 7:40AM Count me down as another against Jobs picking O2 for the UK. Funnily enough, I'm an existing O2 customer, but I'm only hanging on with them because I'm past my contract obligation period and now just waiting to find out who is getting the iPhone in the UK.

I received an O2 customer service call yesterday (receive quite a few of these now that my contract isn't locked-in) and the rep. offered a flat-fee data bolt on pack for £45!?! I told him that I could get a flat-rate fair usage policy from T-Mobile for £12.50, but there wasn't anything they could do. Oh, but I could get 5mb for £15 - bargain......Fingers crossed for T-Mobile then.

Access a second operating system on your Mac with VMware's Fusion (Download Squad)

Jul 1st 2007 12:48PM How do you rate this against the latest release of Parallels?

I've just made the PC to Mac switch (new 15" MBP). Parallels was installed just a few days ago, and apart from struggling to find a way to access 'localhost' in OS X in WinXP on Parallels, the experience has been pretty good.

Mozilla releases Sunbird and Lighting 0.5 (Download Squad)

Jun 28th 2007 5:38AM I'm two weeks in to using my first ever Mac (the new MBP), and I've yet to work out my calendar/to-do list strategy. Thunderbird has done a great job of handling desktop email client duties, but I haven't made much use of Lighting yet, iCal having proved more useful so far. However, I'm have the understanding that neither of these services will provide me with web access to my calender without working in combination with something else.

Is it possible to use a combination of iCal and Lightning on the desktop, and sync it all with Google Calendar for remote access? Or, am I going bonkers and there's a much easier way of doing this?

Dell launches DataSafe online backup (Download Squad)

Jun 26th 2007 5:25PM Intelligent move.

An Inspiron is stolen, but prior to this the customer chose to backup their My Documents with Dell DataSafe Online - do they buy from a different supplier, or do they stick with Dell?

Google releases Safe Browsing API (Download Squad)

Jun 20th 2007 4:15PM There will always be sites with malicious intent. What if Google could give all those devious developers a focal point for their trouble-making?
Wouldn't it make it easier for them to keep track of what they're doing?
