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.
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 […]
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, […]

These “benefits” are rolled in to new Mac models, and eventually become the new standard, at least typically. And I don’t mean to say that these new features aren’t benefits. Apple takes full advantage of new hardware, […]
Update: This article was written in early 2012. Since then, there are great apps like MLPostFactor that make good on this prediction. See this article for an example and details. Apple’s requirement of a 64-bit kernel for Mac OS X Mountain Lion is going to draw ire from many in the Mac community. Stretching back […]
Apple has made a subtle late change to the branding for Mac OS X 10.7 “Lion”. If you look at Apple Support Documents, and the Apple product pages, they refer to the product as “OS X Lion“. Not “Mac OS X Lion” or “Mac OS 10.7”, simply “OS X Lion”. Note that this title lacks […]
