    Latest Mac mini packs more power

    Database, Graham K. Rogers, Published on 04/08/2010

    » As soon as the Mac mini was released back in 2007, I wanted to get my hands on one. In the end I had three. They were billed as the basic Mac and users were able to use the same mouse and USB keyboard they had for a PC.

    A Mini adventure on the Mac

    Database, Graham K. Rogers, Published on 11/08/2010

    » I have been running the latest Mac Mini in my home and at my office for the past few days and in this time have reminded myself of what a useful computer this is. I resisted the adjective, "little" in that last sentence as that demeans the device. Compact is more to the point. As with the previous versions, its dimensions give a user flexibility with regard to location.

    A perfect relationship _ for a while

    Database, Graham K. Rogers, Published on 18/08/2010

    » Some may think that with all the Macs I have written about over the past few years, everything works perfectly. My own Macs have all behaved well. My first modern Mac, which I bought in early 2002, still performs sterling duty in the hands of a friend. After three years of great service from my 2.16Ghz MacBook Pro, it was an easy decision to move to the current 2.66Ghz version with the i7 processor.

    Database, Graham K. Rogers, Published on 14/07/2010

    » Recently, Apple changed the iTunes store for Thai users and added Podcasts to the App store and iTunesU. This was long overdue. A podcast is a video or audio file sent out by its creator at intervals. It can be played on a computer or a suitable player, such as an iPod or iPhone.

    Steganography on the Mac: Hiding data in images

    Database, Graham K. Rogers, Published on 21/07/2010

    » Although the analytical computer was theorised by Alan Turing in 1936 and some of his work was critical in the devices used for decryption of messages created by the Enigma machines of the Axis Powers. His "bombes" and the later Colossus were the first computers. Encryption, therefore, was part and parcel of the birth of the computer. Colossus was destroyed on orders of Churchill, but was rebuilt at Bletchley Park by Tony Sale.

    Opening screen of PicSecret

    Database, Graham K. Rogers, Published on 28/07/2010

    » There has recently been much interest in the idea of hiding information within images: steganography. I have looked at some of applications available for Macs. There are few steganography programs for OS X, but there is much software for other platforms. With Open Source roots, some need compiling. An excellent source for ideas on this subject (and for sources) is Johnson and Johnson (http://www.jjtc.com/): these are technology consultants and not the baby powder people.

    Some more useful utilities for OS X

    Database, Graham K. Rogers, Published on 02/06/2010

    » I have recently been looking at utilities new users may find useful. Before making any changes, make sure your data is backed up. That should be second nature to computer users (Mac or PC), but for many people the message has not yet gotten through.

    Apple's unreasonableness keeps it competitive

    Database, Graham K. Rogers, Published on 30/06/2010

    » A week after the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), Apple moved on. Safari 5 was out, the iPhone 4 was coming and iOS4 was announced for June 21. Analysts pored over the information - some second-hand and incomplete - the pundits predicted the end of the Mac, while the rest of us sat back to wait for what came next. We did not wait long.

    Even more utilities for OS X

    Database, Graham K. Rogers, Published on 09/06/2010

    » I have been examining a number of ways that new users of Macs and OS X can improve their experiences of the (almost total) change in how they use computers. While new Macs come with a large selection of software, including some repair and maintenance utilities, eventually problems appear. These may be caused by poorly written websites, quitting applications before tasks are complete, or corrupted data, among other things.

    Beware of non-virus threats

    Database, Graham K. Rogers, Published on 16/06/2010

    » I had intended to wrap up the look at some useful utilities last time, but recent reports of malware aimed at OS X had me looking at problems and solutions in the first few days of June.
