Steve Jobs 1955-2011

Steve Jobs 1955-2011

It is a great loss not only to the tech industry but, the whole world that we’ve lost a visionary like Steve Jobs. Someone who could see that no one else could and someone who had and unshakeable belief in his visions and thoughts. It is no wonder that he became a role model for millions across the globe as someone who they aspire to be like.

“The World has lost a visionary. And there may be no greater tribute to Steve’s success than the fact that much of the world learned of his passing on a device he invented.”  These were the words of the US President ‘Barack Obama’ in his statement about  Steve Jobs.

GadgetMinistry extends sympathies to his family, to employees and people related with Apple and to others around the world. Meanwhile, let us take time to remember the achievements of the unique and great human being who with his determination changed the world and gave us the opportunity to be part of the change.

MacBundle: MacUpdate

MacUpdate

MacUpdate has a habit of coming out with very useful Macbundles. It is important to remember that before the Mac App store was announced, this was the only site that would give you such detailed information about Apps available for the Mac platform. Macbundles has been one of the specialities of MacUpdate.

The bundles has three apps (Toast 11 Titanium, FX Photo Studio Pro and Bookends) that would cost you $99 each if you were to buy them individually from the web or from a store. These are incredible Mac apps that are highly recommended by experts.

Offer expires on 22-Sep-2011

MacBundle: Bundle Hunt

Macbundle seem to be the topic of the day. There is another incredible bundle on offer at the moment. This Macbundle is specially targetted for developers and designers who care about the look of what they publish

LaunchBar, Divvy and Hype are the three that are a must have and those combined would add up to double the cost of this bundle. Dont get me wrong! The rest are very good as well. But, for my needs I think, I am happy for the three being part of this MacBundle.

MacLegion Bundle

You would find good Macbundles being offered every couple of months. How this works is that the people offering a bundle would put together a bunch of Mac applications to create an attractive Macbundle, usually very hard to resist. The bundle in offer would have an overall discount of anywhere between 80 and 95%.

While buying a bundle, you should consider the whole set. In most cases the price of Macbundle would be less than 4-5 of the applications in the bundle costing independently. So it always is a good bargain. The way I look at it is by considering whether I need 2-3 of the apps in the bundle. If yes, I would go ahead an buy it as the rest of them can be considered as a free gift.

Here’s a good bundle you may want to check out. Click on the image above or link below to go there

Mac Essentials : VirtualBox
avatar

VirtualBox

VirtualBox

VirtualBox, as the name suggests is a powerful virtualisation tool which in lay man’s term means installing the second OS within your existing OS. VirtualBox is a feature rich tool that can not only be used by  home users but can be easily and deployed in an enterprise setup. VirtualBox is very light in weight and is available for all platforms which include Mac, Windows, Linux and of course Solaris.

One would find it difficult to understand the reason why VirtualBox is included in the Mac Essentials list. The main reason on including VirtualBox in this list is because of the fact that many a times you come across an application that requires a specific OS to run it on. This is especially true and critical when this software is deployed by the company you are working for and wants you to use it to carry out certain tasks. On the other hand, if you are a developer, VirtualBox is a must have, purely for the reason that you can test your application that you’ve created on all OS on the same machine rather than owning one machine per OS. This makes life much easier for you to operate from any location of your choice instead of being confined to one location that has all facility.

VirtualBox is a Sun Microsystem product and that is why it is freely available as an open source software under the GNU General public license. You can install a large number of guest OS on VirtualBox on any of the platforms mentioned above. The guest OS include Windows (NT 4.0, XP, 2000, Server 2003, Vista, Windows 7), DOS 3.x, Linux (2.4 & 2.6), Solaris and OpenSolaris,  OS/2 and OpenBSD.

VirtualBox is constantly upgraded by the developers and there are new features that are constantly added to the software. VirtualBox does not support resource intensive 3D games yet, but for normal usage like office, internet etc it is more than sufficient. With recent upgrade of VirtualBox to 4.0 it has now included the support for modern operating systems (64 bit OS) which runs as smooth as it would on a dedicated hardware.

VirtualBox is available for free at link below

Set Scroll behaviour similar to Mac OS X Lion on Snow Leapord
avatar

Scroll Reverser for Snow Leapord

Scroll Reverser

If you are someone still on Snow Leapord who is pondering a move to Lion or someone who has more than one Mac and still have Snow Leapord running on some of your Macs then you may want to install this tool “Scroll Reverser” that will help you set scroll behaviour similar to that of Mac OS X Lion. This tool helps Snow Leapord users to start using and learning the new scroll behaviour and for people with Macs on different versions of Mac OS to unify the scroll behaviour across all Mac machines.

When you install and run Scroll Reverser it’ll add an additional item to your menu bar on the top which will allow you to choose the preferred scroll behaviour. Select “reverse scrolling” from the menu and you’re all done. This will also reverse the horizontal scroll to make it similar to that of Mac OS X Lion.

Having upgraded to Lion (Mac OS X 10.7) I realise that one of the biggest change that initially bothers you and takes some time to get used to is the reverse scroll behaviour that Apple has enabled as default in the new operating system. Like everything else, you get used to it after a couple of days of usage.

You can set scrolling gesture back to what it used to be in Snow Leapord through the preference menu. Personally, I recommend not to reverse the default that comes with Mac OS X Lion but to try and get used to the change. Though it takes some time to get used to, it probably would be worth in the long run. Apple is trying to unify the operating systems (iOS and Mac) and this change is a result of the unification. There is a strong probability that there would be only one OS running on both the desktops and tablets. Even if it doesn’t, Apple is trying to bring in a similar usage experience on both devices so that new users can easily adapt to the OS and easily switch between Apple devices owned by them. It is likely that future changes will be in line with new scroll behaviour and eventually one will have to adapt to the change. It is better to start now then to leave it for later.
