Mac OS X 10.6.7 now available, fixes MacBook Pro issues and many bugs

Apple has just released Mac OS X 10.6.7. As its version number implies, this is a minor software update, even more so than 10.6.6 which at least ushered the Mac App Store into the world. However, 10.6.7 does apparently fix many issues that people who have bought the newest MacBook Pros have encountered, and as such it's a recommended update for all early 2011 MacBook Pro models. The update...

LastPass Sesame enables two-factor authentication for your password vault

Two-factor authentication is a good way to add a strong, additional layer of security to your online accounts. While it's certainly important to use with something like your Google account (which recently added support), a password manager like LastPass is an even better place to batten down the hatches this way. LastPass users who have a premium account should definitely check out Sesame, a...

From the developers of Dropzone, the "Swiss Army knife of drag and drop for the Mac," Frenzy is a private social network that lives entirely in hidden folders within your Dropbox cloud storage.

Byword for Mac is a simple, minimalist app for writing

Byword for Mac is a very simple application designed to let you do one thing, and one thing only: write. To achieve that, it's incredibly clutter-free, and it really doesn't get in your way at all. In fact, it's one of those apps that's almost entirely invisible -- by design. When you open it, the only thing you see is a clean full-screen interface that lets you start typing right away. There...

Now company has made its way into Apple's Mac App Store, which makes Opera 11.01 the first Web browser in the Mac App Store that isn't built around Safari's Webkit core.

iDisplay for Android review: turn your smartphone or tablet into a 2nd or 3rd desktop display

When we first heard about iDisplay, there was something about it that piqued our curiosity. It extends your desktop onto another screen -- your Android or iOS device, to be exact -- and while that sounds cool, its actual usefulness isn't immediately apparent. All you have to do is install the app on your Android device (2.1 or newer), run the server program on your Windows or Mac PC, and...

BlackHole RAT Mac OS X backdoor Trojan virus mimics password prompt

A new backdoor Trojan virus that targets Mac OS X has emerged, Sophos reports.

Fortunately, the virus doesn't seem to be very malicious. It allows a remote controller to reboot or shutdown an infected computer, or pop up a...
