iPhone OS 4 on Its Way?

  Us Apple folk love our updates.  It seems Apple is fully aware and slowly dishes out fixes (no pun…) and features for us gradually over time.  I don’t know about you, but it has been a long time since we had a nice little iPhone update.  Don’t fear though, Apple is hard at work on their next update if this little image above is any hint.  Boy Genius Report has found a nice little log which mentions iPhone OS 3.1.3 and 4.0.  We knew something had to be on i

More Details On The New Mac Mini


  Thanks to TUAW we have some of the fine points of the much needed refresh to the Mac Mini.  The first thing is that the Superdrive will be SATA, so you can either keep the drive or add a second hard drive as an option.  The next detail is that the Mac Mini will look more like the Time Capsule with a lip on the side which encapsulates the optical drive and provides for cooling, which eliminates the need for the vents on the back. The new Mac Mini will also be black and aluminum, like the current lineup of Macs.  It has been a long time coming for a refresh and we assume other details such as a core 2 duo, an Nvidia 9400M and the capability for more RAM.  In a few weeks, we’ll all know for sure.

Safer Browsing for Kids at Askkids.com

 Askkids.com has just gone thru an overhaul.  The site is dedicated to help keep your kids away from what most people do not want their kids to have access to. Many people including myself have thought about the best ways to protect your kids from accidentally typing in or searching for that wrong term that brings them to content deemed inappropriate.  Ask.com has been around for some time and only commands 1.5-5% of the search market.  The plus side is they have been in the search market a long time and know their way round by now.
