Woz having reception problems, too

For all of his exceptional qualities, part of Woz' popularity these days lies in the fact that he is really the prototypical Apple fan -- he stands in line like everyone else, he postulates about Steve Jobs' condition, and he loves the products just as much as we do. So when even Woz admits to...

Psystar alienates the Hackintosh community, too

Say what you will about Psystar, the community that continues to sell computers running OS X, despite bankruptcy, constant legal problems with Apple, and a case so slim even their own legal team gave up.

Is the Mac OS X 10.5.7 update causing you grief?

Against my better judgment, I always download and install Mac OS X updates immediately. That has never caused an issue with any of my Macs until now.
