Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition gets September release date

Overhaul Games confirmed today that the PC version of Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition will be arriving on September 18. The Mac and iPad versions are also releasing sometime in September, but sadly Overhaul didn't want to talk specific dates for those versions. The Android version doesn't have a release date yet, but we're hoping that having a solid release date for the PC version means that the Android port will be following shortly after.

Apple OS X app hack discovered

About a week ago, Russian hacker Alexey Borodin found a way for iPhone and iPad owners to download in-app purchases for free. Well, now, that same hacker has managed to circumvent the same kind of procedure for Mac OS X apps. The "In-Appstore for OS X" uses a similar receipt-spoofing method that made waves among iOS apps last week.

Automatic Downloads added to Mountain Lion

Apple continues to add more and more iOS-like features to Mountain Lion. The latest addition to the developer preview brings the Automatic Download function for apps purchased from the OS X App Store.

Kaspersky Lab exec calls OS X “really vulnerable”

Malware has increasingly become a problem for Mac OS X, most recently having been affected by the Flashback trojan which infected over half a million systems.

Mountain Lion adds “Do Not Disturb” feature

Apple continues to update the Mountain Lion developer preview, bringing it up to version 3 so far. The latest update adds even more functionality, this time relating to notifications.

Mountain Lion still keeps tracks of alerts in the Notification Center, so they’ll be waiting for you when you do want to come up for air.

Apple Ireland political visit applauds Euro expansion

This week Apple's plant in Hollyhill in Cork, Ireland, has received a rare visit from the country's Taoiseach Mr. Enda Kenny. This visit represents a bid of confidence in the workers in the area to use Apple to bolster their economy both in the immediate area and across Europe. Apple this month announced that they'd be adding another 500 roles across Europe to the 2,800 people working at the Hollyhill facility, Apple's very first plant opened outside the USA several years ago.

A new study performed by security firm Sophos has found that one in five Macs is likely to carry some sort of Windows malware, but only one in 36 could be infected with malware specifically designed to target Mac OS X. The numbers come after Sophos collected data from around 100,000 Macs that have the Sophos anti-virus software installed.

Apple + Valve = OS X Gaming Push

Apple + Valve = OS X Gaming Push

This weekend we're hearing basically every single tech, gaming, and Apple-heavy site flip out over the idea that Tim Cook's visit to Valve means an Apple gaming console is in the mix - I disagree. Several simple factors mean that Apple's next-generation television push isn't going to be a full-fledged television, and several simple factors count Valve out of the physical gaming system game as well. Instead, I contend that Apple will be releasing their next-generation MacBook Pro line with emphasis on graphics and computing power, with Valve's library of OS X-compatible games there to back up their claims.
