Apple OS X moves 2 million copies over the weekend

Apple OS X moves 2 million copies over the weekend

Since when did Apple’s OS start doing MS numbers? Apparently since the 26th when they released Leopard.

I reckon that’s what you get when you make a quality OS from the beginning and then just continue to improve upon it. 2 million copies is amazing, I can’t wait till Friday to see what their entire first week sales are.

WiiZapper gaming gun to get Europe release pre-Christmas

Unboxing: Palm Series 3 Wireless Bluetooth Headset

Unboxing: Palm Series 3 Wireless Bluetooth Headset

So today I got a gift on my front porch from FedEx, it was the new Palm Series 3 Bluetooth wireless headset. I like the way it looks, and so far the way it feels.

The headset is made to rest inside your ear, but comes with an ear loop for those like myself that are prone to the loss of things held solely in place by our ears. Other than the additional ear loop, there are a total of 3 ear pads that are each a different size so you can get the best fit for your ear.

Whenever we or anybody else reports on developments in Art Lebedev's Optimus Maximus camp, someone invariably pops up shouting "render!"  Well, either the Optimus guys are getting a whole lot better with their Photoshop skills, or they really did show off a working prototype of the OLED-keyed 'board yesterday in their Moscow store.

 

Super Mario Brothers Multi LED Mushroom Pumpkin

Super Mario Brothers Multi LED Mushroom Pumpkin

If you're going to have a geek inspired jack-o-lantern then why stick to those pesky candles? Not only does it light up with LED lights it lights up in three separate colors.

The video tutorial shows you step by step how to cut out the Mario mushroom and then how to hook up the shiny lights. A small suggestion, don't put it outside till it's completely dark because this is one design that looks really ugly with the lights on. You can't even tell the thing is a mushroom.

JailBreakMe.com one-click JailBreak and Installer install

JailBreakMe.com one-click JailBreak and Installer install

If you have been considering Jailbreaking your iPhone or iPod Touch since the release of firmware 1.1.1 things just got a lot easier. With AppSnapp, the program that is launched from JailBreakMe.com, all you need is your handheld Apple device and a WiFi connection.

Your device has to have firmware 1.1.1 installed, and can be activated or not, if not, AppSnapp will also go ahead and activate your device for you, there are ways to access Safari and navigate to a given URL without activation, so you’ll have to follow one of those guides, but after that, everything else is taken care of. You go to the url, click “Install AppSnapp” at the bottom and then you wait 5-10 minutes, provided you are using a high speed wifi connection, and then you get a screen lock screen, slide the slider and your Apple device is jailbroken and has installer.app installed, and has been patched from the tiff exploit.

Intel X3100 Chipset support found in Leopard install

Intel X3100 Chipset support found in Leopard install

Support for Intel’s X3100 mobile graphics chipset could mean that Apple has plans for a quick and dirty MacBook hardware refresh. Apple has generally stuck with ATI or NVIDIA graphics for their Mac Pro, MacBook Pro, and iMac line-ups, and the X3100 is a mobile graphics solution, so that means either the MacBook or the Mac Mini are getting the update.

Regardless of which one it is, the X3100 graphics chipset only works on the Santa Rosa platform which means that Santa Rosa is either getting added to the MacBook, the Mac Mini, or Apple is releasing a new, slightly lower end, MacBook Pro. The latter is possible due to the rumors of an all aluminum (like the MacBook Pro’s) 13” ultra portable being in the works, combined with the fact that the MacBook Pro’s are the only mobile line of Apple’s that already support the Santa Rosa platform.

T-Mobile Shadow Reviewed

T-Mobile Shadow Reviewed

The guys over at CrunchGear got their hands on a T-Mobile Shadow to review, so what did they think? Overall they seemed to think it was a rather mediocre handset.

They did like the scroll wheel, the compact size for a smartphone, and its fairly cheap price. On top of that, they liked what T-Mobile and HTC had done to smooth out the edges on Windows Mobile 6.
