Google CR-48 netbook hacked to run Windows 7 and Mac OS X Snow Leopard

We already shared Google's instructions for installing Ubuntu on a CR-48 Chrome OS netbook with you, but one enthusiast has decided to take things a step further. After all, if you can get two x86 operating systems running on the CR-48 why not try for three or four? YouTube user Damis648 has managed to get both Windows 7 and OS X Snow Leopard running on Google's plain black machine. It's a...

AirPrint Hacktivator for OS X -- Enable AirPrint on Mac OS 10.6.5 with one click

While you can enable AirPrint on OS X manually by copying files from one of the pre-release builds of 10.6.5, there's now an easier and faster way to do it -- AirPrint Hacktivator. A quick and easy way to activate AirPrint without having to hunt down, backup, and replace the three files required manually -- the simple tool requires just one click to 'Hacktivate' and importantly, 'De Hacktivate'...

Apple releases Mac OS X 10.6.5, with tons of little fixes

Apple has released the latest version of its Snow Leopard operating system, Mac OS 10.6.5, which fixes a whole slew of little bugs and quirks, from improving Exchange support to fixing printer issues to syncing Address Book with Google Contacts. Snow Leopard users can get OS X 10.6.5 now by running Software Update. The complete release notes -- much more thorough than Apple's usual vague...

Bizarre glitch killing lighter color tones in Snow Leopard - there's an easy fix

A few months ago, my Mac ran into a spot of trouble and suffered a kernel panic. Yes, Macs crash too, it does happen. After rebooting, I noticed that shades like #fafafa wouldn't display as anything other than flat white once I'd logged into the system. Now, I was lucky in realizing that it was only after login, because I have my login screen's background set to an image that uses lighter shades...

IronFox for OS X sandboxes Firefox for more secure browsing

One of the major draws of Chrome is that it runs in a sandbox, making it one of the most secure ways you can browse the Web today. The catch is that people have to use Chrome to gain that extra measure of security, and let's face facts here -- Chrome and Chromium only hold a fraction of the market share that Firefox has earned over the years. Thankfully, Firefox users on OS X now have the...

The best Google Reader mod becomes a Safari extension

My favorite userstyle for Google Reader is Snow Leopard. It uses space much more efficiently and looks much prettier than Reader's default UI. In fact, I like it so much that it's become weird to see the default skin. Now there's good news for anyone else who likes Snow Leopard as much as I do: the Snow Leopard userstyle is now available as a Safari extension for Safari 5! Of course, you...

TotalFinder brings tabs to Mac OS X!

TotalFinder is a set of enhancements to the Mac OS X Finder, the most important of which is tabbed windows. Thanks to some of Google's Chrome code, you can now declutter all those extraneous Finder windows and use browser-like tabs instead. TotalFinder is unfortunately Snow Leopard-only, because it takes advantage of SIMBL plugin support that wasn't introduced until OS X 10.6. It's a tiny...

Pro Tools gets Windows 7 and Snow Leopard support

Pro Tools, one of the most popular software packages in the music business, has been updated to work with the latest and greatest Windows and Mac operating systems. Pro Tools 8.0.3 offers official support for Snow Leopard and (reportedly very stable) beta support for WIndows 7. It also includes some bug fixes that make it worth upgrading, even if you're running an older version of Windows or OS...

Viewfinder brings powerful Flickr search to your Mac

Every now and then I find myself working on slides in Keynote and writing Download Squad posts - and struggling to find a suitable image. Of course, Flickr is the best way to find images - their clear licencing and Creative Commons support makes finding images fairly straight forward. However, getting the image into Keynote isn't entirely painless. The workflow of browsing search results, viewing...

Windows Live Sync finally gets an update for Snow Leopard

It's been a long, long wait for Snow Leopard users (myself included) who are dancing with the devil and using Microsoft's Windows Live Sync (formerly Foldershare), but Microsoft have finally announced an update for the application that resolves a long running compatibility problem with Apple's finest. Wearing version number 14.0.8096.0903, the new release fixes a problem with internal security...

Are your apps ready for Snow Leopard? SnowChecker can tell you

If you aren't sure whether your favorite Mac apps are compatible with OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, SnowChecker can help. It scans your hard drive for apps, and then checks their compatibility against the info posted at snowleopard.wikidot.com. Not only does SnowChecker show you whether your apps are incompatible, it also gives you details notes about which features are broken. To quickly see which...

Live Mesh updated for Snow Leopard

I'll admit that it seems strange to use Microsoft's Live Mesh on a Mac, but with Apple's MobileMe getting spotty reviews, some Mac users prefer to look for alternative ways to sync. Until now, Snow Leopard users who rely on Live Mesh were out of luck, but a new version of the Live Mesh client supports OS X 10.6. If you're still on Leopard, you don't need to update to the new release, but Snow...

Skype for Mac gets a Snow Leopard hotfix

The latest version of Skype 2.8 for OS X fixes a whole mess of Snow Leopard compatibility problems. The bugs include everything small UI problems - the field where you type in phone numbers was too dark - to serious problems (like four different crash bugs and a broken hold button). It also clears up some problems with adding new contacts. In addition to the Snow Leopard fixes, there are also...

Customize your Snow Leopard dock with Dock Library

When Apple introduced the new shelf-like dock in OS 10.5 Leopard, users were up in arms over how ugly it was, with some even switching their docks to the side of the screen to avoid seeing it. If you hate the shelf, or just wish you could make it look better, you should give Dock Library a try. It lets you replace your dock with a custom design, and works in both Leopard and Snow Leopard. Sites...

SIMBL for Snow Leopard: re-enable those Safari hacks

If you're a Safari user who enjoyed plug-ins -- some people insist on calling them Input Managers, we're agnostic on the subject -- like Glims and PithHelmet in Leopard, and you're sad to see that they don't work in Snow Leopard, you'll be happy to see an update to SIMBL that will let you hack your plug-ins back to life. The new version of SIMBL does indeed work with Snow Leopard, although you'll...
