Hardcore iBook upgrade; Speed up your superdrive; check your rootkit; Powerbook spills its guts

09Nov05

HardMac gives a guide on making a “turbo” 12-inch iBook. Required materials include: 8x superdrice from Matshita, an 80GB Hitachi HD, 1GB of SODIMM RAM, and etc. I think this is for hardcore users only. Unless someone can actually make this into a permanent service.

Another hack from HardMac is how to speed up your existing DVD writer. You’ll need a Windows emulator and enough cash to buy a new PC in case you ruin the one you are tweaking on.

O’Reilly’s MacDevCenter shows Mac users how they can identify changes to the file system. This is after the show of stupidity that Sony-BMG has displayed for the past week.

Lastly, after seeing an iBook dismembered, it’s time to see it done to a Powerbook as well.
