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~
Steam empowers Windows and Mac gamers alike as it allows gamers to have a central destination where they can basically get discount game offers from time to time, download free to play games, shop for games, discuss about games, play the games, and the whole nine yards. I have no affiliation with Steam, but I like Steam a lot since I’m a Steam user myself. This is why I had created a video which strives to introduce Steam to whoever wants to play games on Windows and Mac platforms. Enjoy the video right after the break!

Although the video right after the break was uploaded for almost a year ago by someone on YouTube, but I think it is still very relevant as the instruction within regarding to how to install Windows 7 on a Mac may still be useable. Anyhow, I think it’s quite interesting for someone to install Windows on a Mac. Of course, you can always dual boot a Mac and Windows on a Mac, but you can’t really do so easily with having Mac on Windows (possible but you gotta jump through hoops). Of course, I think it’s silly to install Windows on a Mac since Mac users are definitely can afford to buy a PC for PC is way cheaper than a Mac. Nonetheless, the cool factor to have Windows on Mac is just plain cool in my opinion. If you can do it, why not right? Having the look of the Mac, and yet you will also be able to play Windows games on a Mac under the guise of using Mac but in hardware only.
iCloud (Photo credit: BasBoerman)
I barely use iCloud, because I prefer Dropbox, Pogoplug (i.e., software only so it would turn a computer into Pogoplug device), Ubuntu One, CrashPlan, and FreeNAS (i.e., I prefer to virtualize FreeNAS until I can set up a proper physical FreeNAS box). This is why I know so little about iCloud. In fact, the only time I use iCloud is when I hit the iCloud button which allows me to backup my iPhone and iPad to free iCloud account (i.e., as this writing iCloud gives 5GB free storage space). According to the video right after the break, iCloud isn’t allowing users to upload specific files from their Mac computers to iCloud, therefore you can’t really use iCloud as how you have been using Dropbox. I’m perplexed why this is the case, but anyhow the video right after the break will show you how to upload any file to iCloud — it seems to me like a lot of work. (Just stick with Dropbox instead?)
CCleaner On Mac OS X Image (Capture on Vinh Nguyen's MacBook Pro)
CCleaner is well known to Windows users, but Mac users probably never have even heard about it until now. Yep, CCleaner is now available to Mac users on Mac App Store. It’s no surprise how popular this tool is, because it’s now #1 free download app on Mac App Store. Just like how it works on Windows, Mac users can use CCleaner to clean out temporary data and caches for their Macs. Of course, CCleaner isn’t the only tool/utility to do this on Macs, but the price is too inexpensive to pass up by folks like me. The price is $0.00!
Some elite Mac users might cringe at hearing there is another tool to help Mac users clean up their temporary data and caches. Well, novice Mac users might think utilities such as CCleaner a blessing since using command lines to clear up temporary data and caches on Mac might be hazardous. By deleting the wrong data, Mac users might render their Macs useless. Sure, Mac itself might execute cron jobs that automatically clean up temporary data and caches from time to time, but these cron jobs might happen too infrequently for heavily demanded Macs. This is why I think CCleaner and similar popular apps might be good for cleaning up temporary data and caches when on-demand needs arise. Check out the preview of CCleaner on Mac through the video right after the break.
Yay! I had used Pixelmator to create this brand new logo for EssayBoard which I named it as EssayBoard YourWorld. Nonetheless, I’m not sure how I will implement this logo on this very blog since I can’t really modify the header of this blog too much and the logo is too wide. Anyhow, at least now I can show off to you the awesomeness of EssayBoard YourWorld logo.
By the way, giving credit to where credit is due, EssayBoard YourWorld logo is using the earth photo which belongs to Woodleywonderworks (a Flickr user); this earth image has been categorized under creative commons 2.0 attribution license. Since the earth photo is under creative commons attribution license, and so I took the liberty to edit it further by giving it a somewhat translucent look. In case you wonder whose hand is that in the logo, it’s mine!
Finally, I want to say using Pixelmator to create logos is so easy, but this photo editing software is much more than just for creating logos since I have been using it to enhance just about any photo I have ever came across. For your information, Pixelmator is an app which you can buy and download in Apple App Store for Mac. Check out EssayBoard YourWorld logo right after the break!
