Hello all, after reading Keaton’s post about his predictions for September 1st I have been inspired to write my own. I mean, it’s about time I wrote something here.
I absolutely adore music, it’s on a par with how much I enjoy discussing technology. This annual event normally, has been the perfect match between the two for me. While we can neither confirm nor deny, it’s quite probable that we will see at least one new iPod at this event, along with new AppleTV’s and such. So I believe it’s worth writing about my predictions for the iPod lines for 2010/2011. (more…)
Hi all, it’s me, Matt Rhinesmith, back with another post, after a “short” delay. This time, I’m posting a little tidbit I found about overclocking ANY sub-533 MHz G3 or G4 Mac to 533 MHz. I have tried this personally on both my iBook and iMac G3, and I’ve definitely noticed improved performance. For example, as I write this post in Safari 4.1.1 with 3 tabs open, I also have Mail and Twitterrific open, and DVD Player open, paused.
While it definitely helps that I have the maximum of 567 MB of RAM installed, it would choke long before this at 366 MHz. These instructions are courtesy of Mark Sokolovsky, a netizen of LEM’s G3-5 List. You will want to print these out, since they’re not easy commands to remember. Also, where it says ” <something>, there is a space in between ” and <something>. That tripped me up when I first tried this. Anyway, here they are, exactly as he posted them to the list: (more…)
Hey all, I’m back with another (shorter) post, this time a poll. The question: What Twitter client do you use? The conditions are: the client must run reasonably on an iMac G3 running OS X 10.4.11, it must be a native app, (no Adobe Air) and it must not be the web version. This is a poll because I’m lazy and I couldn’t find many anyway crowdsourcing is a great way to discover things you never knew exist, and also to involve readers. I’ll review as many as possible, so you have that to look forward to! Vote for your favorite(s) in the comments!
What if I told you that you could play a game that’s been around since 1988 on your Mac… without an emulator or compatibility layer? And what if said game was an important part of Macintosh history? And… what if said game was both highly addictive, and free? No, this isn’t some kind of nostalgic fantasy, it’s real, and boy is it fun!
Now, your first thought is probably: “Emulation? Huh? Why would I want to emulate anything? I mean, yeah, I use a Windows VM every so often, but aside from that…”, right? Well, in this post I’ll give you a few use cases for miscellaneous emulation, and list a few sites to get emulators from.
Hi there, it’s the newest member of the IMP team, Matt Rhinesmith, with my first post!
Today I’ll be talking about some neat and useful things you can do with the old PowerBook or iBook you have sitting in your “Macs I Used To Use But Didn’t Have The Heart To Get Rid Of” closet/shed/bin/etc.
