Apple Lets You Take A Peek At How The New Mac Pro Is Being Built

Want to take a peek at how new Mac Pro is being built?  Apple is boasting that they have radically engineered their new Mac Pro to be unlike any other they have had ever engineered before.  Under the hood, it got really powerful components.  Basically, cutting edge components such as Intel Xeon E5 Quad Core or 6-Core.  Obviously, the list of the most cutting edge components yet in this new bad boy is pretty long.  You can just take a quick jump over to Apple’s official website and read the spec sheet for yourself, and please don’t drool all over yourself.  What about the aesthetic of the beast?  Some people think it looks like a cute trashcan.  I don’t know, because I haven’t seen one in real life and so I decide to keep my opinion on this closer to my chest at this point in time.  Anyhow, without Steve Jobs’ unique presence and passion, I wonder how well will Apple be able to stay focus on innovating and supporting their products with Steve Jobs-like passion?  If they’re continually developing their products with Steve Jobs-like passion and not worrying about their shareholders’ demands, then I think I will definitely want to repeatedly, shamelessly take a delicious bite off an apple in my nightly dream.  Check out the video right after the break which showcases how far Apple has had gone in making the new Mac Pro.  To the extreme yo, and the launch date of this new Mac Pro is in this December! :P~

GeekTool To Beautify Mac’s Desktops In Meaningful Ways

GeekTool is a free app that you can find on Apple’s App Store, and it’s not that hard to use as some people have suggested.  The app aids Mac users to beautify their desktops.  The best part is that stuffs that you add to your desktops through this app can be dynamic.  Nonetheless, you need to use codes to add some of the stuffs onto your desktops such as time and date and calendar and so on.  Adding images is much easier though!  I’ve found a cool video on YouTube that shows you how to add times and dates onto your Mac’s desktops using GeekTool, and you can check out the video right after the break.

Here are the four links that might be helpful to you in the quest of using GeekTool to beautify your desktops in meaningful ways:

Tip:  Don’t forget to edit the refresh time for your dynamic code.  For an example, if you add the time code, then you want your time to be updated on your desktop dynamically each 25 seconds or so, right?  Or else, you will see a static time which will display the old time and will not be updated with the changed time.

HP Rolls Out HPE H8 Desktop PC

Waves of tablets prompt people to suspect that desktops are going the neanderthal way, but here HP has rolled out a new HP Pavilion HPE H8-1090d Desktop PC.  This bad boy equips with Intel Core i7-2600 3.4 GHz, 8 GB DDR3, 2 TB SATA (7200 rpm), Blu-ray disc combo player, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 (2 GB dedicated), and HP Wireless Wlan 802.11 b/g/n Mini Card.  The operating system is Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit.  Once again, it’s a disappointment to see this new desktop from HP isn’t yet equipped with something better than USB 2.0.  Last I heard, HP is going to use USB 3.0 over Thunderbolt, but that is couple days old news.  (I don’t mention the price, because it’s still pretty new and price can be varied from one reseller to another over this PC).
