  • Mossberg reviews Gateway One, says it's no iMac

    Since Gateway announced the One, everyone and their cousin has known it’s a blatant copy of Apple’s iMac. Even Uncle Walt over at the Wall Street Journal knows damn well what Gateway and Dell are trying to do with their all-in-one computer systems. Unfortunately for Gateway, while imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, the One doesn’t even come close to the iMac. In… Read More

  • Two million copies of Leopard sold in first weekend

    Apple has a hit on its hands and that’s always a good thing. With the release of Mac OS X Leopard this past Friday, over two million loyal Mac users flocked to stores or their computers to purchase a copy.

  • Why Leopard Isn't Better Than Vista

    Leopard hasn’t been out a week and already the Microsoft fanboys are starting to bash away. Take for instance, an article I found called “Why Leopard Isn’t Better Than Vista” written for eWeek and posted on Neowin. Now if the domain names aren’t biased enough, think about what this guy is saying. Vista is better than Leopard. That’s like saying your… Read More

  • Use logic for Spotlight searching in Leopard

    I’ve been using Apple’s new OS, Mac OS X Leopard since the 25th and I really am in love with it. Aside from the rendering issues surrounding Safari and Shiira (Flash animations won’t load) and problems with Stacks customization, I really don’t have much else to complain about. As I was stumbling around Apple’s website today, I came across a new function in… Read More

  • Leopard launch madness: Apple Store 5th Ave photo frenzy

    Right at the entrance as the doors first opened at 6 p.m. It was me and some AP photographer there. CrunchGear is hardcore. Hey gang. I just got back from the Apple Store on Fifth Avenue here in New York where I snapped a few photos of the launch. It was absolutely dreadful outside, with the rain and wind and cold nearly bringing me to tears. (I called John while covering the launch. He… Read More

  • Leopard gone gold, Apple posts 'how to' video

    Leopard has gone gold, with Apple declaring Build 9A581, which has not been leaked on the Internet yet, the winner. As such, Cupertino today posted a cute little “What’s Leopard?” video on its Web site. There’s no real heavy lifting in the video, especially for those of us who have been following its development like we’re the paparazzi, but it’s still… Read More

  • How to get Mac OS X Leopard for as low as $40

    Last night, I remembered something that you will no doubt thank me for later. When Mac OS X Tiger came out a few years ago, I was ready to buy it. I had my $130 in hand and was waiting in line. But as I approached the cash register, I ran into a coworker I knew and he told me that the University of Pennsylvania’s bookstore, which was right down the block, was selling copies to students… Read More

Even better, word on the street is that Apple will release Leopard on October 26. Mark your calendars. Even though Leopard hasn’t gone gold yet, all but one of the bugs have been worked out. Don’t worry, I’ll be cruising… Read More

  • Total Photoshop Killer: Pixelmator!


    Something different than the standard Photoshop layout! Crazy! On one of the underground torrent sites I visit daily, I came across a new Mac App that had been downloaded a bunch of times. It’s called Pixelmator and it’s an upcoming competitor that’s going to blow Adobe Photoshop out of the water. Right now it’s in closed beta, so this leaked version is still experimental. Read More
