iPad support for hardware Dvorak keyboards in latest SDK beta

A few months ago Macworld asked where's the iPad's Dvorak keyboard? Well, in the iPhone SDK 3.2 Beta 5, which was released on Tuesday, there's support for hardware Dvorak keyboards in the OS; however, still no sign of a soft keyboard layout for Dvorak fans. A source sent us the above screen shot...

Hey Dvorak, welcome to 1984

Maybe I shouldn't even link to this latest John C. Dvorak column, since in the past he's essentially admitted to antagonizing Mac users just to get traffic, but it's not every day that Dvorak basically admits that the Mac is superior. He goes out of his way to tell us he's not switching for his "per...

Dvorak Keyboard on the MacBook

Flickr user sjwalsh384 has a neat Dvorak keyboard mod for the MacBook. Apparently fond of the alternative and supposedly faster Dvorak keyboard layout, he rearranged the key caps on his MacBook (their square shape makes this relatively easy). He has some photos on flickr documenting the process. Wo...

For those of you worried about security...

There is a little application I mentioned way back in September 2005: MacScan. Does it work? Well I have no idea, because I don't use it, and I've never heard of any particular spyware for the Mac. Yet somehow a new version is out which protects against "all the latest threats." Like that ...

The Battle for Chief Moron Continues

President of the Moron Society, Rob Enderle, has had his latest blather incomprehensible ramblings column published by TechNewsWorld, in which he postulates a future where Microsoft has purchased Apple, and the reasons for why it might happen. I could spend an hour debunking his entire column (for i...

Dvorak off his meds: claims Apple switching to Windows

Someone. Please. Help Dvorak find his meds. He's lost them again, resulting in yet another shock-value crackpot theory article that I chose not to link to on general principle. This time around, Dvorak has once again put inaccurate facts on the table and drudged up baseless speculation that Apple co...

In lieu of other parties on Tuesday night, I was lucky enough to get registered for the live recording of This Week in Tech, or as it is popularly called, TWiT. For those who don't know, TWiT is one of the most popular podcasts out there, featuring the inimitable Leo Laporte (he used to be on TechTV...
