by snib (#23402878) Attached to: Running Mac OS X On Standard PCs
I used to run Kalyway 10.5.1 on my Dell Inspiron e1505 - it all ran pretty flawlessly. Some hardware drivers had to be hacked, and I couldn't get my video card to run at a native resolution.

But it was only a couple weeks before I got tired of it. IMO, part of the charm of a Mac is... y'know... the actual Mac.

Anyway, I used this guide for Dell Centrino Duo laptops, and other posts on the same site are extremely helpful if you're really interested in trying Mac OS X on a PC. Check the "OSx86" section, and especially this thread.

+ - Hidden music discovered in Da Vinci painting->

snib writes "An Italian musician and computer technician claims to have uncovered a hidden musical score in Leonardo Da Vinci's "Last Supper." From the article: "[This raises] the possibility that the Renaissance genius might have left behind a somber composition to accompany the scene depicted in the 15th-century wall painting. 'It sounds like a requiem,' Giovanni Maria Pala said. 'It's like a soundtrack that emphasizes the passion of Jesus.'"

Pala published this and other findings about the "Last Supper" painting in his book The Hidden Music, released in Italy Friday."

snib writes "Motorola has recently introduced the RAZR2, successor to the wildly popular RAZR V3 line. The new line consists of the V9, the V8 and the V9m, which is a slightly less impressive model for CDMA networks such as Verizon. "New features include external music controls, haptics (read: vibration) for tactile feedback when external touchscreen keys are pressed, a full HTML browser, 2 megapixel cam, the full suite of Bluetooth profiles, Windows Media Player sync, a 2-inch QVGA external display, 2.2-inch QVGA internal display, and twice the screen resolution of the original RAZR." GSM versions are on the way now and CDMA models are expected later this month."

snib writes "Art Lebedev will release detailed specs and pricing info on their Optimus Maximus Keyboard and start taking pre-orders on May 20 at 3 PM Moscow Time (or 7 AM US Eastern Time). The OLED-topped programmable keys have drawn a lot of hype over two years or so, including on Slashdot, and Art. Lebedev, the manufacturer, even has a blog dedicated to it. However, current plans only include production of 800 units total by January."

In specifications, Murphy's Law supersedes Ohm's.
