2 Apple Revolutions Compared: First Mac and First iPhone

The Original MacintoshMacworld's Christopher Breen observes that no two Apple products share a closer parallel history than the original iPhone and the original Macintosh computer - each revolutionary for its time. The Macintosh 128K was the first mainstream computer to include a graphical user interface similar to ones that are still the industry standard today, while the iPhone was the first minicomputer to masquerade as a cellular telephone, pioneering a primarily touch-based user interface with limited physical buttons and no stylus.

So how does Apple's original landmark product, the Mac, compare to the current version of the iPhone? Breen takes a look, comparing processors, memory, displays, operating systems, and respective sales performance.

Take My Mac Provides a Convenient Method to Trade in and Sell iPhones, Macs, iPads, and iPods

PR: Take My Mac is a re-commerce service that allows Apple users to sell and recycle devices in any condition - including all iPhones, Macs, iPads, and iPods. Top dollar is paid for all devices and satisfactory service is provided to every customer. Take My Mac is geared toward filling your wallet with cash instead of letting harmful electronic materials trickle into landfills.

Take My Mac announces their new, hassle free, and environmentally conscious online service dedicated to anyone seeking to trade in new, used, and broken Apple devices. By focusing directly on the Apple niche, Take My Mac provides a satisfying way to sell Apple products. The company eliminates the expensive and exhausting selling process for all consumers who would endure the selling process themselves.

By providing this reliable, free service throughout the United States, Take My Mac ensures that the selling/recycling process is fast, secure, simple, and highly rewarding. For assurance, Take My Mac will gladly take all Apple electronics without hesitation. When consumers fill out a detailed form describing their device on the service's website, Take My Mac promptly replies back with an above market value quote that exceeds offers from many competitors.

If the consumer accepts Take My Mac's quote, free shipping is provided for the device being traded in. After Take My Mac receives the device, an inspection process is performed to confirm the initial value, following an issuing payment either by PayPal or check to the device's old owner. After payment is sent, the customer has successfully sold their Apple device.

Overall, Take My Mac is devoted to meet the needs of all customers. The service has served hundreds of satisfied customers who are overjoyed with how simple, straightforward, and friendly the trade in process is.

Rob H. from Los Angeles, California happily testified, "This was a most pleasant surprise & an online buyback service that not only caters to Apple products, but also offers a quote that far exceeded at least six other purchasing websites. Though you won't get an instant quote, which turns out to be a plus. Your item is reviewed by a person and the process is much more customer friendly than I've seen anywhere else. I had my quote in less than 24 hours and the rest of my experience was wonderful. Responses to emails are answered quickly and with a big e-smile. What they say they will do on their site is exactly what they'll do. They are a first-rate company I would recommend to anyone."

Pleased customers like Rob makes founder and president of Take My Mac, Andrea Bebirian, feel accomplished. "Take My Mac's vision is to expand this service to dominate our competitors. We're here to solve a problem - which is to specifically provide an eco friendly option for Apple device owners to trade in their unwanted electronics in order to upgrade to newer technology or to gain extra cash. We're here to work together as a team with our new and reoccurring customers. Quotes other companies offer make my heart sink for the fact that if people are seeking to trade in their Apple devices, they deserve more than a fair value for their efforts. I hope that Take My Mac can rapidly expand to offer this service to thousands of Apple device owners seeking a simple solution to sell devices."

By trading in your gadget, thousands of computers, cell phones, and other electronics will avoid becoming a statistic to the growing amount of electronic waste in landfills.

Free ClamXav Antivirus Software for Mac Updated to 2.0.9

PR: ClamXav is a free virus checker for Mac OS X. It uses the tried, tested and very popular ClamAV open source antivirus engine as a back end.

New in version 2.0.9:

  • Scanning engine updated to ClamAV 0.96.5
  • Improved stability during scan.
  • Fixed issue where ClamXav Sentry was incorrectly reporting infected files if a certain string was in the filename.
  • If you're on OS X 10.4 or are having trouble installing this update, download the new version from http://www.clamxav.com
  • If you have edited freshclam.conf and clamd.conf by hand, you can find your old files inside /tmp.
  • If you don't know what that last line means, you can probably ignore it!

Back in the days before OS X, the number of viruses which attacked Macintosh users totaled somewhere between about 60 and 80. Today, the number of viruses actively attacking OS X users is . . . none! However, this doesn't mean we should get complacent about checking incoming email attachments or web downloads, for two reasons. Firstly, there's no guarantee that we Mac users will continue to enjoy the status quo, but more importantly, the majority of the computing world use machines running MS Windows, for which an enormous quantity of viruses exist, so we must be vigilant in checking the files we pass on to our friends and colleagues etc. For example, if you're a wise person and you've turned MS Office's macro support off then you're not going to notice that virus which is hiding inside this month's edition of Extreme Ironing.doc which your friend sent you. If you then forward that document to a less wise person who has not turned off the macro support, then you have most likely just sent him a shiny new Pandora's Box with a sign saying "Open this end"!

Don't forget, if you run VirtualPC you can still become infected and lose valuable data on your Mac even though technically you're running Windows inside a sandbox. VPC will run any application you tell it to, virus or no virus, it doesn't know the difference. You can protect yourself slightly by not using VPC's "shared folders", but that's a useful feature which you shouldn't have to be without.

System requirements: Mac OS X 10.4 or later.

MacTVision HD - Revolution in an App

PR: With another blow dealt to traditional television, MacTVision Technologies announces MacTVision HD for Mac OS X, an update to their revolutionary application that allows users to watch over 2,600 free, network TV, news, sports, and specialty channels on their Mac, instantly, on demand. The app features searchable, updating, interactive TV listings, which include over 13,000 programs with thumbnails and descriptions. As more and more television viewers discontinue their cable or satellite service and move to Internet-based TV, MacTVision offers a complete, integrated solution that requires no additional hardware or monthly fees.

Displayed in full screen mode, MacTVision's scrollable database of Listings appear in a window that occupies the top one third of the Main window. The Listings window contains nine columns, and listings may be ordered according to any of the nine columns: Name (of TV show), Type (TV, Streams, Videos, Radio, or Media Apps), Category (Movies, Action, Comedy, etc.) Language (English, Spanish, German, etc.), Favorites, Rating, My Rating, Details (short summary), and Featured. Selecting a popular show from the Name column, e.g. Desperate Housewives, brings up three new windows that occupy the bottom two thirds of the screen: Summary, Sources, and Episodes.

The summary window provides an overview of the program's premise. "What dark secrets lie behind the well-manicured front lawns of Wisteria Lane? Murder? Suicide? Sex? Adultery? Try all the above, and that's just the first episode. Desperate Housewives has enraptured millions with its steamy tales of supposedly mild-mannered suburbanites. Whether it's Lynette struggling to raise her three rambunctious boys, or Gabrielle trying to prove she's more than just a token trophy wife, the women of Desperate Housewives never fail to keep the thrills coming and the audience's temperature rising."

The Sources window lists the various outlets through which the program can be obtained: Hulu, Channel4, CTV1, or CTV2. The first on the list is selected by default. Finally, the Episodes window indicates that 20 episodes are loaded and may be scrolled through. Each episode listing consists of a still from that episode, the episode's title, a complete description, and a large blue button to begin playback. Pressing the Play button launches the MacTVision View screen, and the program begins.
