    Non-Psystar PCs running Leopard appearing

    John Biggs has a Psystar. It’s a generic PC that runs OSX Leopard, and runs it well at that.

This X-ITE PMP is aimed right at the Touch, from form factor to interface. It has a few niceties the Touch doesn’t have, such as DivX and Windows Media support, FM tuner, minSD slot for expansion, and a built-in speaker. There are two… Read More

    Fabrik Launches Myfabrik – Google Yawns, Has Sandwich

    Oh boy. I hope you guys are excited on this bitterly cold Tuesday because in Silicon Valley, things are getting HOT! A service called Myfabrik is being released today after beta testing. It’s going to change the way you use the web, I swear. You’ll be able to do things you’d never thought possible, such as share files online (up to 1GB), share videos, photos, and the ability to… Read More
