… can be solved easily using Lnx2Mac’s driver :D
His driver is based on Realtec’s Linux driver which has been released under the GPL.
Yeah, it was overdue already. The guys over at MacUpdate just launched their pre-chrismas holiday app bundle. For US$49 you will get:
Anyway: the bundle makes sense at least for the TotalFinder, DataRescue, TotalSpaces and Snapz Pro. Means you can’t do anything wrong by buying it. And who knows, probably PopChar, MoneyWell and Swift Publisher might turn out to be useful aswell. The first 12,000 buyers will get Live Interior 3D for free on top (saves you another US$129)…

Codeweavers do it again. The company behind the commercial version of Wine named CrossOver will be giving away free copies of it again.
On Wednesday October, 31st, everybody can get a free copy of CrossOver with 12mths support.
CrossOver is an emulation layer for MacOS X and Linux. In contrast to virtualization solutions like VMWare, Parallels or VirtualBox, it allows running thousands of Windows applications, tools and games without having to install a legit Windows operating system.
Do you wanna configure large numbers of iOS devices at once? Apple made some tools available for enterprise customers. Find them here:

The german Paragon Software Group has just released their Windows NT file system driver “NTFS for Mac OS X 8.0”. According to Paragon this driver is the only driver on the market that allows to read and write to NTFS drives with the same speed as native HFS+ drives.
In contrast to Tuxera’s “NTFS for Mac” solution Paragon’s “NTFS for Mac OS X 8.0” also supports 64bit kernel installations of Snow Leopard.
According to TheBigBoss.org two tools have appeared on the net:
Both of them are fakes and don’t jailbreak the iPhone, the iPod Touch, nor the iPad, but harm your system and delete iTunes files. Thus leaving you with broken installations.
According to Rixstep.com Apple plans to set up an App Store starting with the introduction of Mac OS X 10.7.
Developers planning on marketing software for 10.7 will submit their products to the App Store as iPhone and now iPad developers have already done. 10.7 will have kernel support for (‘insistence on’) binaries signed with Apple’s root certificate.
No software will be able to run on Mac OS X 10.7 without being approved and signed by Apple, Inc.
There’s a rumor saying there will be a Mac App Store and no software without authorization from Apple will run on Mac OS X. Is that true)
According to the mail Steve Jobs (or someone managing his email account) simply answered:
Anyway: you cannot be sure what his answer specifically means. Probably we’re gonna need jailbreaks for Mac OS X in the near future anyhow…
Notorious hacker Marc Maiffre said in an interview with CNet.com that OS X is less secure than Windows. The reason why Windows is more attacked anyway is Windows’ market penetration.

Teateam a russian speaking Mac OS developer binary patched the latest Mac OS X 10.6.2 Mach Kernel to eventually reenable support for Intel Atom CPUs. His kernel seems to be running well in 32bit and in 64bit mode. Atom CPUs are now reported as Intel Core Solo or Core Duo.
The patch seems only to consist of modifying a couple of (simply) assembler instructions to permanently set the CPU type. In the meantime Apple has released kernel sources and people are working on adding Atom CPU support in a proper manner.
Congrats Teamteam. That’s what Ilfak made IDA for ;-)
Apple’s 10.6.2 update closes lots of security holes that could be used to compromise systems. Safari, iWork, iLife, Aperture, Final Cut Studio, and some other apps are rumored to be working more reliable after updating.
Apple pwns back
For OSX86 users on netbooks this update is far away from being recommended at the moment. The update now has proved what has been rumored some days ago: Intel Atom support has definitely been removed from the kernel.
Thus rendering Intel Atom based netbooks non working. Netbooks will not boot after updating as the following video by Stellarola shows. It shows the typical behaviour if the CPU is not supported by the kernel, OS X will instantly reset the system.
