I’ve been speaking to some journalists about desktop search and they all want to know what desktop search means for the search engines.

Macintosh Users Have Intelligent, Helpful and Easy-to-Use Productivity Tool to Encode Business Cards.
Apple’s Mac OS X makes broad use of Adobe’s PDF technology. It is the first example to date of an operating system that contains an actual Adobe Normalizer embedded as a system component. A careful analysis shows that Apple hasn’t yet delivered on the exciting promise of an operating system built around PDF.
A lot of folks have grumbled about paying $130.00 to upgrade to Panther, the latest version of Mac OS X (October 2003). I have to say that it is definitely worth it: maybe you feel cheated because you just paid for Jaguar six months ago, but you will be happy after you install this. The hype, for once, has reality behind it: this is as good as Apple said it would be.
First: I LOVE my Mac. It’s my wife that hates it. I say that in the hopes of heading off a flood of defensive email. Don’t bother to write me telling me how wrong this article is: you would be preaching to the converted. I already know that she’s wrong, that’s she is just hopelessly corrupted by the Microsoft way. I also know that I’m guilty of not training her in the basics of using this iBook, so yes, it’s partly my fault. Or all my fault if you like.
Perl (Practical Extraction and Report Language) is a predominately Unix driven program. There are interpreters for all the major (and minor) OS’s but to run them locally you have to have Unix, Linux, or Mac OS X. If you want to get the interpreter for Classic it is available for free at http://www.macperl.com. You can still follow what we will be doing, just ignore all the X mumbo jumbo.
Virtual PC for Windows, Mac (OS 9 or X) and OS/2 creates virtual machines that can run multiple Windows versions. This is particularly advantageous for Mac users, but even ordinary PC users can find value in this. It’s easy to have Linux, Windows 98, Windows ME, 2000, XP Home and XP professional all on the same machine.
Despite a few good online articles and countless alarmist news items decrying parasitic War Drivers and War Chalkers contributing to the moral decay of the country, a surprising number of people still install wireless equipment with all of the defaults enabled. There are a huge number of access points in use today that unintentionally advertise a default SSID, bridge directly to an Ethernet network, and use no encryption whatsoever (or a WEP key left on the factory setting, and therefore easily deduced).
Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology (S.M.A.R.T) is built into most newer hard drives. S.M.A.R.T records a number of “attributes” that can be reported. These are things like Seek Error Rate, Spin Up Time and more which could help warn of impending difficulties. This predictive and warning function is part of the value for products like Granite Digital’s SMARTVue.
Do you market your products or services to businesses, and have specific questions related to sales leads? If so, ask M. H. “Mac” McIntosh, the Business-to-business Sales Lead Expert. As successful B2B marketing and sales consultant, Mac is considered by many to be one of America’s leading authorities on business-to-business sales leads.
TransparentDock 2 is an application that allows customization of the Mac OS X 10.2 dock.
The debate between PC and Macintosh partisans over which platform performs better reached an interesting impasse this week when longtime Apple Computer partner Adobe Systems published a document on its Web site that supports claims that the PC is indeed faster.
Apple has just released Java 2 Standard Edition (J2SE) 1.4.1 for Mac OS X. Mac OS X has shipped with J2SE 1.3.1 installed from the beginning. Now J2SE 1.4.1 is available to all Jaguar (Mac OS X version 10.2) owners by using the software update at Apple’s Java product page. Much of the time porting J2SE 1.4.1 to the Mac has been spent moving the GUI elements from the Carbon framework to the Cocoa framework. This means it is easier for your Java applications to take advantage of Mac OS X specific features when running on the platform and to look and feel more like native applications.
