500,000+ visitors and counting.

iThink that is the mark of a good blog. A blog iSimply started as a response to a situation… it has spawned so much more and all of it for no cost to me at all. Except my time, energy and combination of the two to make the RSS subscribers happy. And speaking of happy, iAm officially happy to have reached 500,000 visitors to the web pages of Thunk Different.

Thank you readers, WordPress, Apple, the Wall Street Journal, IBM, and everyone else who has published my work and made this possible. iAm humbled, iThunk none of this was possible and wouldn’t have been with out the web & the people the make it possible… you. 😉

Ok, so iDon’t know anyone that can own up to the title of this blog yet, but… I do know someone who blogs for botc.wordpress.com. Guess who? Yours Truly. & you can too – just ask.

The blog is actually titled: Browser Of The Century. Can you guess which browser we are talking about here?

Netscape?

Internet Explorer?

Naw dog. FireFox.

That’s right.

iStarted a new blog on FireFox, The Browser of the Century.

iF you are an avid reader of Thunk Different, and iKnow you are, then you know that iUse Camino as my primary personal browser, Safari at Work, and Firefox at both. Firefox is the one-stop-shop. Over 2,000 plug ins and a big ole Beta 3 to get your hands on right now if you are sly enough to know how to get it. iCan show you, over at botc.wordpress.com

A new home for the browser of our times, found at The Unoffical FireFox Weblog,

Finding a worm in the Apple? Secret APIs in Mac OS X

March 1, 2008

A Mozilla developer has discovered undocumented Mac OS X framework APIs that are being used in Safari. This discovery has led some to question if Apple is giving itself an unfair advantage, with some pointing out that if Microsoft was caught doing this it might find itself in front of a judge.

New iMac Benchmarks: Santa Rosa Chipset Speed Tests. 24″models

August 13, 2007

primate labs results24 inch iMac Performance via Primate Labs!

August 9th, 2007 Steve Jobs announced new iMacs on Tuesday and while I’m not sure Iimac speed test like the new enclosure, I do like the other improvements that come with the new iMacs like faster processors, more hard drive space, and the Santa Rosa chipset.

I thought I’d compare the performance of the latest 24-inch iMac against the previous generation of 24-inch iMacs using Geekbench 2. While I don’t have any results for the 24-inch iMac with the Core 2 Extreme processor right now, I’ll update this article once I receive results for the Core 2 Extreme processor.

Setup

  • iMac (24-inch Mid 2007)
    • Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2.40GHz
    • 2.00 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
    • Mac OS X 10.4.10 (Build 8R4031)
  • iMac (24-inch)
    • Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2.33GHz
    • 2.00 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
    • Mac OS X 10.4.10 (Build 8R2218)
  • iMac (24-inch)
    • Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2.16GHz
    • 2.00 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
    • Mac OS X 10.4.10 (Build 8R2218)

Primate Labs is reporting the baseline score, rather than the raw score, for each benchmark (where a score of 1000 is the score a Power Mac G5 1.6GHz would receive). Higher is better.

Installing & Using iLife 08 with an iMac: Troubleshooting Application.

August 8, 2007

(Jam out too a rare “Hey Jude” or Jimi while you read)

Whew…

iLife users only had to wait a year and a half for this one, luckily, it was well worth the wait. iLife 08 is the most drastic upgrade since… iLife 06. But still, iLife 06 is pretty dang neat and all for only $79.00 single user retail and $99.00 for 5 account family pack. (Go with the family pack in case you would like to purchase a G4 powerbook or want to sell your current mac.)ilife 08

Wait, a G4… why would i want that? Because the prices are a little more down to earth on eBay than they are at the Apple store. iMacs… always debatable, they are truly pro-sumer these days and by the looks of the it 24 inch refurbished iMac is the best deal Apple offers with a full warranty.

The new 2.8 iMac with 500 gigs of storage and 2 gigs of RAM looks good too. Trust the video card upgrade is worth it alone, iMacs have been sorely lacking in this department, yet have still been usable, unlike the macbooks, which if you read my review from last week and simply, toys.
