At what point does a smartphone really become a digital camera with call-making abilities? Up until now, we've never really had to put much thought into such a scenario, because quite frankly, the integrated cameras on most smartphones leave a lot to be desired.

Steve Jobs says the next version of Apple's OS, nicknamed Snow Leopard, will concentrate on easing programming for parallel processors.

Apple issued a large patch yesterday for its Leopard operating system. While the iCal calendar exploit got a good bit of press back when it was discovered in January, most of the over forty bugs and vulnerabilities addressed in the patch haven't really been front page news, although many of them seem fairly serious. The days of "security by... Read more...
There are some people that mod and tinker just because they can, and they usually end up with really strange contraptions that leave us in awe.  The accomplishment of getting OS X Leopard running on a non-approved platform is amazing on its own, but getting it running on a tiny VIA-powered uMPC such as the OQO Model 2 is nothing less than...

Palm just doesn't seem able to catch a break these days.  Take the Foleo for example.  When Palm announced it, it made waves but also drew some criticisms.  Once VIA announced their Nanobook, many were keen to compare the two and it seemed that Foleo wasn't winning too many armchair comparisons by the world's forum jockeys. ...

While HH takes a firm stance against piracy and EULA-violations, we are extremely impressed that somebody managed to get OS X 10.5 working on a brand new ASUS Eee PC.  Strangely enough, the biggest technical roadblock seems to be getting Leopard to run happily on a CPU that doesn't support SSE3.Leopard runs a bit sluggishly on the Eee,...

Apple has always done their utmost to lock consumers into their hardware/software combination, and some consumers were really hoping to see Apple release a version of OS X that could be installed on any PC.  Tiger came and went, Leopard's come, and users are still locked into Apple hardware.Since most new CPUs have been touting virtualization...

When a new operating system is announced, it often has a long list of features that will attract potential customers.  Unfortunately, not all of those features end up making the final cut.  Sometimes the missing feature(s) are as underlying as a new file system, but other times it is a missing utility that provides some non-vital...

All is not well in Apple-Land. Several threads on the Apple discussion forums indicate a defective batch of DVDs, as well as BSODs ("blue screen of death") after installation. Now, much as we always say about Microsoft, you can't expect 100% flawless behavior; there's no such thing as bug-free software after all. But the defective DVDs, on... Read more...
With 300+ new features, it'd take at least one whole article to properly cover Apple's newest iteration of OS X, 10.5 a.k.a. Leopard.  Some of the new 'features' are really more in the way of bringing programs like iCal up to date, but some of them are genuinely useful or just fun to tinker with.  Most of the 300+ features are in...

Apple promised to release Leopard in October, but hasn't set a specific date that they're willing to share with the world.  It seems likely that it'll be towards the end of October due to the sheer volume of bugs reported in recent builds of their newest OS, and the fact that nobody has been talking about the discs going gold just yet.A new...

The Foleo was overwhelmingly panned as a device in search of a market.  Not only that, as late as last week analysts were saying it would have to be delayed because of a number of bugs.  Rather than do that, today the first generation of Foleo - Palm insists there will be another generation - has been cancelled. Palm CEO Ed Colligan... Read more...
