I take another look at the Mac Pro, and how machines Apple made in 2006 are still owning Macs sold today.
I explain, once again, the biggest security hole on Mac today. And, this time, why you need to watch out each time you get a new Mac, too.
Be very careful how you install Seagate’s drive diagnostic software on Mac, even if downloading from their own web site.
If you install the latest Java update, released yesterday, on OS X Lion or OS X Mountain Lion, it will not only delete the Java web-plugin, but it will delete something you didn’t expect… Java Preferences.app. Apple did make note of this, in the security descriptor notes for the update, but nowhere in the notes [...]
Today I had to help yet another confused/frustrated person deal with the fact that they, unaware to themselves, possessed multiple Apple IDs. I personally have four Apple IDs that I have to juggle.

Considering [...]
After well over a year of delays, Oracle has finally shipped consumer-friendly versions of Java 7 SE for Apple’s OS X. But, you need this primer to understand it all.
Now that Mountain Lion has shipped, Apple has shipped OS X Server for Mountain Lion. And it comes at a great new price, only $19.99. I think that’s great. What I don’t think is great, is that Apple now refuses to even sell OS X Server for OS X 10.7 Lion. Because of driver bugs, [...]
