  • A clear-eyed guide to Mac OS X's actual security risks

    Apple has improved its security in recent years, but is it enough?

  • Apple's and Microsoft's secret pact for tech domination

    15 years ago, Steve Jobs and Bill Gates agreed to let Apple own the client and Microsoft the back end to thwart antitrust probes, newly discovered emails say

  • Beyond the Lion's roar: The best overlooked, underrated features

    Apple billed this summer's release of Mac OS X Lion as having more than 200 new features, but most coverage of Lion in the intervening months has focused on only a handful of them. While iOS-like navigation and app-launching interfaces, autosave/restore capabilities, AirDrop file sharing and an emergency restore partition are by all means important, there are a lot of helpful tweaks and enhancements that can easily be missed.

  • Bugs and fixes: When OS X Lion slows to a crawl

    How I tracked down, identified and ultimately eradicated a mysterious bug for which there seemed no immediately obvious cause.

  • The complete guide to running Windows on a Mac

    Mac OS X is a great operating system for most tasks, but some enterprise software just won't run on anything but Windows. This guide will show you how to get Windows 7 running on your Mac. And since Windows 8 Developer Preview was just released a few weeks ago, it made sense to include this as well to spare you the early adopter pains I had.

  • Mac OS X Lion: What you need to know

    Apple has been gradually pulling back the curtain on its latest and greatest cat, first at a preview event last October and then this week at the Worldwide Developers Conference. And what we?ve seen thus far is a pretty significant shift for the Mac OS, influenced in large part by Apple?s mobile operating system, iOS.

  • Apple plans to democratise servers with its Mac OS X strategy

    Recently, Apple previewed more features that will be available in its upcoming release of Mac OS X 10.7, "Lion." We first got a glimpse of Lion at Apple's Back to the Mac event in October, when CEO Steve Jobs said that several technologies developed in Apple's iOS mobile operating system would be brought back into Mac OS X as part of Lion. Since iOS evolved from earlier versions of Mac OS X, the "back to the Mac" moniker made sense.

  • A decade of Mac OS X

    On March 24, 2001, the iMac was less than three years old, the iPod was still more than six months away, and Macs ran at astounding speeds of up to 733MHz. But most importantly, Apple on that day released the first official version of Mac OS X, changing the future of its platform forever.
