With a little poking around in this undocumented framework Erica reports that with a supplied Yahoo ID Apple’s Address Book and iCal will sync with your Yahoo services. Hmmmmm, I thought Apple and Google were BFF!
Arrrrrr. Avast Ye Matey! The cat is out of the bag. The WWDC 2007 beta of Leopard (Build 9A466) has hit the grand daddy of all torrent sites. Just search for “The Big Cat” on The Pirate Bay and fire up your favorite BitTorrent client.

Here’s a handy trick sure to benefit any user (OS X) who has yearned for a copy of their current application icon(s). Creativebits has a handy tutorial reminding users of how simple it is to extract a PSD file from existing .icns files (complete with transparency layers).
Apple reveled today the secret 12th application for the iPhone, its YouTube. The YouTube player will use the newly encoded/converted H.264 videos that YouTube has been working on and Apple is promising over 10,000 YouTube videos will be available on June 29th to feed the iPhone. You will be able to stream YouTube content over EDGE and WiFi but can only imagine that the videos will be viewable on WiFi.
Forgot your system password, or need to get into a Mac? MacKrack is a free password hash extractor (for 10.2, 10.3, and 10.4) and Zip encryption cracking program for MacOS X
The utility supports the Crypt, MD5, SHA-1, and Salted SHA-1 algorithms using either a dictionary or keyspace brute force attack.
With this application the only thing separating you and a MacOS X password is time. I use a reasonable secure non dictionary alpha numeric 10 character password and it was cracked in 2 hours. Enjoy, with caution.
KisMAC, for those who don’t know, is a wireless network discovery tool for Mac OS X. It scans for networks passively to let you know available networks, signal level and encryption type. But KisMAC doesn’t fear encrypted networks.
It is capable of cracking of WEP and WPA keys, both by brute force, and exploiting flaws such as weak scheduling and badly generated keys as well as packet reinjection.
The only problem is that the current complied version doesn’t work with Apple’s latest MacBook and MacBook Pros. We use SVN to compile the application with newly released code to support (in passive mode) the AirPort Exteme wireless cards in MacBook and MacBook Pros.
Ever since Apple released Boot Camp, Mac users who partitioned more then 32GB to their Windows partition have been unable to write to the little Windows drive sitting on their Mac desktop.
Those days are over thanks to a open source Google (gahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!) project called MacFuse. MacFUSE is a port of Linux’s FUSE kernel-level interface to just for Mac OS X. Even though it is not yet an easy install, if you need to write to your Windows partition from your Mac this will be a HUGE help.
You will first need to download and install MacFUSE via the compiled DMG.
Then you will need to download and install the precompiled NTFS-3g package.
Once that is done open Disk Utility and find the device identifier of the NTFS volume, and unmount it (Usually called disk0s2 or something along those lines). Once that is down open Terminal and type:
mkdir /Volumes/DEVICEID Except type in your device ID that you found earlier.
Then type ntfs-3g /dev/disk0s2 /Volumes/DEVICEID -o
Then the finder should mount your NTFS volume. This mount procedure must be repeated every time you want to mount an NTFS volume, and I suggest you might want to create an automator script to ease the process. Use with caution.
