Synergy Button Set for Leopard

Original Tabbed Style One of the tiny little annoyances with the upgrade to Leopard, was that Synergy, a great little application that provides control of iTunes from the menu bar, looked a little unpolished when using my favourite ‘Tabbed’ style interface.

One Week With Leopard

MacOS X 10.5 Leopard Box Probably the second biggest change for me this last week after that of my new job (especially given the amount of time I spend on my Mac) is the upgrade to MacOS X 10.5 ‘Leopard’.

Shades of 1984

iMac G5 Apple today announced it’s 3rd generation iMac. Keeping to the all-in-one form factor, this revision sees the LCD screen mounted alongside the G5 powered CPU and other hardware, mounted on one leg - reminiscent of the recently released Apple Cinema displays.

I can’t help but notice similarities to the original Macintosh of 1984 - well from the front, certainly not from it’s 2” side!
