iPhone 4….Released!

If you were lucky enough to get your preorder through Apple’s or AT&T’s website you should hopefully be enjoying your new iPhone 4 by now.  If you decided to wait and see, I can tell you the lines are long and supply does not look like it will meet the demand.  I have decided to collect some resources here for folks who have already received there iPhones and for those who are still considering getting one.

Run Windows Based Applications on a Mac

If you have ever wanted to run a Windows based application on a Mac but don’t want to go to the trouble of running Bootcamp or a virtual version of Windows. Check out WineBottler. It allows Windows based applications to run on a Intel based Mac OS X computer. It is similar to Wine, software that allows Linux users to run Windows apps. Please note that this software is still in BETA and not all applications work.
