Hackintosh? The low cost alternative to buying Apple…

Hey Folks,

hackintosh2It has been one hell of a long time since I have posted here but why not just jump right back into the blogging sphere with a cool article about building your own, low cost Macintosh, err hackintosh. Make no mistake about it, Apple builds superior computers. They are extremely well designed, offer the highest quality components, and provide you with a refined user experience.

That said there is always some room for improvement. Take for instance the Mac Pro line of hardware. It is the machine to use if you are a graphic designer, a software developer using XCode, a video editor, or just about anyone using a Mac for audio or video production. Unfortunately, this line hasn’t been redesigned since 2006-2007 and has only been minimally refreshed with new processors since then. No real new improvements.

While there has always been a subculture movement working hard to make OS X run on ordinary PCs it just hasn’t been fruitful, until now.

In past years there have been many hacks, may mods to kexts and specially made boot keys and CDs some which have partially worked and others which didn’t work at all.

Now with the help of youtube (search for Hackintosh) or tonymacx86.com you can get extensive build guides and tutorials as well as lists of recommended and known working hardware to build your own machines, all at a fraction of the cost of a new mac.

I plan on building my very own Ivy Bridge based Hackintosh in the coming weeks and will report back here with an article on how the experience went.  In the meantime, please be sure to check out these hackintosh related videos and websites, they will certainly offer you everything you need to get started with your very own hackintosh project.

Apple TV 2 – Review

Apple TV 2 - Fits in the palm of your hand

Sleek, black, powerful, multimedia device

The AppleTV 2 is so small it fits in the palm of your hand but it packs quite a punch on the big screen.  I have 2 now.  I liked the one I bought for my office so much that I acquired another at a Christmas party this past holiday season.  And by acquire I mean stole.  You see, the party I went to is set up that every couple brings a $100 gift and everyone gets a number.  As your number comes up you can either pick a gift off the pile or steal one that has already been given.  And since that’s how I role, I now own two Apple TV 2.  Haha.

Anyways.  Here is the deal.. The Apple TV 2 will allow you to stream media from your iTunes account via wifi or ethernet cable on any computer to your TV.  Plain and simple.  But there is more.  The Apple TV 2 also have built in NetFlix, YouTube, MobileMe, or Flickr.  It’s actually quite impressive and I use it just about everyday.

If you subscribe to video blogs or are a NetFlix addict like myself then this is a product for you.  The quality is great and it is incredibly easy to setup and navigate.    You can also rent or download movies from your iTunes account and play them in HD on your big screen TV and be perfectly satisfied with your purchase.

The Remote is sleek, small and pretty easy to use.  I have slipped up a few times doing a text search but I have been getting the hang of it.  It’s the same remote that Apple shipped to control Front Row on the mac.   The Apple TV reminds me a lot of the old Front Row interface but much improved.

The Remote is very small but pretty easy to use...

The unboxing and setup take virtually no time at all.  Simply open it, Connect Power, Ethernet, and HDMI and you are ready to go.  If you do not have Ethernet then you can configure it to use your wireless connection if available in your house.  You must have a wired or wireless network in your home to use Apple TV2.

Ports on the back of Apple TV 2

The left most port is the power connector, next to it moving right is the HDMI connector, beneath the HDMI connector is a Micro USB connector for restoring your Apple TV 2 in case you screw it up trying to jailbreak it, the next port is an optical audio connector and finally the right most port is an ethernet connector.

The same Micro USB port can be used to jailbreak the Apple TV 2 but you need a special Micro USB cable that can be found on eBay.  It looks exactly like this…

Articles on jailbreaking the AppleTV2 can be found all over the web.  It’s just not the purpose of this blog so please google jailbreaking the Apple TV 2 for more info on that process.  That said you can add more functionality to the Apple TV 2 such as installing the XBMC Media Center to allow you access to all different types of video formats and content.

When all is said and done I highly recommend the Apple TV 2 to my friends, family and colleagues.  It is a great piece of engineering and for $100 how can you go wrong?

Job Search Security??? Be Careful!

I had to re-post this here as I posted it on my http://spamend.com blog.  It’s a good read and lets you know exactly what lengths these conmen will go to to steal your identity.

—–Begin————–

For all of you who are actively conducting a job search and there are a lot of you, take note of this warning.  The phishers are actively harvesting private data in very devious ways.

I responded to an ad on Craigslist the other day for a job opening with the following title, Senior IT Executive (North Jersey).  Here is the link…

http://newjersey.craigslist.org/tch/2180772287.html

I wasn’t interested in this job as it only paid $15 – 21 per hour which is a joke if you are looking for a senior person.  That said, I did receive the following reply….

Hi Mark,

Thank you for your interest and your recent resume submission. My name is Lindsay Slayton and
I am the Human Resource Manager that is in charge of the hiring process for our company
VSD Property Management. I’ve look over your application and due to the high amount of
replies that we’ve gotten regarding our recent classifieds posting, I wanted to contact
you as soon as possible and see if you would be interested in setting up an interview with us.

Before I continue let me tell you some background information about VSD Property Management:
We are an established Rental Company that was founded back in 1984 and we’ve grown immensely
since then. Unlike other rental companies, we hope to foster a fun yet efficient environment
for our employees since we have the firm belief that if we provide our employees with a
welcoming work atmosphere we will see an increased return in productivity. Candidates should
consider themselves self-starters and be able to work efficiently with minimum supervision. Other
skills like great interaction with employees of all levels of the firm, strong communication
skills, organization skills etc. are also valued very highly.

Our company aims to build a strong bond with its employees and therefore we offer benefits
packages for you and your family plus we thrive to pay our employees a higher hourly wage than
any of our competitors. We will be discussing compensation and benefits a little bit more in
detail during our interview when we are in a more private environment instead of public emails.

Now due to our policies I will not be able to schedule an interview with you until you have
filled out one of our online applications which can be found on our company website.
Please visit
http://vsdmanagement.com/application/ and fill out our short application so we can move on
with the interview process. Each applicant is required to have a personal application code
in order to fill the application.

Your code is: 6MJ5QZgN6X0

Since we have received such a high number of replies to our job posting I will only be able to
hold your application on my desk for 1-2 days more so please do not wait too long to fill out
our online application! I will contact you as soon as I receive your online application!

Now if you have any questions please feel free to contact me!
Hoping to see you here for an interview soon,

Lindsay Slayton
Human Resource Manager
VSD Property Management

._=_,___-=-=,._,,_=,..=-==_-_.=.,-_=-___=_.=

So let’s look at this shall we.  First things first.  The FROM says the message is from Lindsay Slayton but the actual email address says huqazefezaz95@hotmail.com.  So there are a couple of no-nos here.  First off the name of the person and the actual email address do not match.  Now this is common if you are emailing with friends but not in a professional environment.  What company would have an HR person respond to a job submission via a Hotmail account.  Unlikely at best.

Next, the first line says that I submitted a resume.  Haha.  I didn’t but for those of you who did, be careful.  Any private information in that resume is now being harvested and used against you.  Hello identity fraud.

Thirdly, she says she works for VSD Property Management which does not meet the description of the original job posting.

Lastly, she (probably not a she by the way) tells you in order to set up an interview you have to fill out a questionnaire online which undoubtedly asks a number of personal questions including your Social Security number.

Oh… One more thing.  I did a whois on the domain name mentioned in the ad and it comes back as being registered to the following individual…

So this guy is in Russia trying to harvest US data.  BE CAREFUL OUT THERE…  And please pass this on.
