I'm not normally a big fan of modifications. I find many mods to cause far more problems than they're worth, and rarely do they make you more efficient. But then I started paying attention to how I work, and the tools I used, and I realized that while I don't have tons of system hacks, there are quite a few things I do to make the Mac OS X work the way I want it to.
Russian security vendor Kaspersky Lab has announced it has virus protection software waiting in the wings, just in case Apple’s Mac OS X suddenly becomes a target for hackers.
Kaspersky, based in Moscow, has no immediate plans to release a Mac product, but one could "be ready in just days," spokesman Timur Tsoriev said at the CeBIT show in Germany.
With the possibility of iPhone apps coming to the iTunes Store as early as this week, speculation abounds over how software will be offered and if there will be a vetting process that will ensure users are getting high-quality programs.
According to one report, Apple has already set the specifics of that plan in motion and is ready to move forward on Thursday.
After spending some time with Apple's Time Capsule this afternoon, we have some impressions for you. We'll dig deeper before our full review on Monday, but here are some initial thoughts.
AppleInsider says Apple is "actively" poking Sony (as opposed to other BR manufacturers) for slot-loading Blu-ray drives for MacBook Pros—Apple supposedly even wanted to offer BR SuperDrives with the new Penryn-powered machines, but "quality issues" meant Sony could only deliver combo drives. Apple said shno thanks for now.
