 Is that a dongle in your PC, or are you just happy to be using OS X?  For as long as Mac devotees have been flaunting desktop superiority over their Windows counterparts, users on both sides of the fence have clamored for a way to install Mac OS X on a PC. On Monday, the wait may be over. Dubbed “the best solution for running Mac OS X on PCs” and consisting of a device that is “neither a memory stick nor a thumb drive,” EFiX allows non-Mac users “to install Mac OS X straight from the original DVD without having to worry about patches, replacing files and anything like that” is poised to free the PC world from the shackles of Vista.

 Army Retail Strong  The U.S. Army recruiting center in New York City looks like a standard office, with desks and PCs. Pictures of the newest recruits line an office wall, and posters of soldiers dominate the other side. At the far end is a doctor’s scale. And except for two friendly recruiters (one of whom is surprisingly tech-savvy), the center is empty. The Apple Store on Fifth Avenue is white and clean, and bustling with activity. Patrons glide from station to station, playing with the iPods, checking their email at the computers. At any given moment, a dozen employees are answering questions or demonstrating their favorite tech toys. Business is brisk.

The iPhone 3G and the FCC

  For as long as Apple has been delivering revolutionary, drool-worthy products that defy expectations and redefine conventions, fans have been scrambling for a peek under the next black curtain. With the proliferation of 24/7 news sites and bloggers, the race to report rumors has become cutthroat competition; as such, stories can sprout from anywhere --- patent filings, supplier contracts, inventory fluctuation, dormant string names and, of course, anonymous tips --- and often spread as fast as actual press releases. Last month’s report on upcoming iPhone subsidies, for example, originated on a Fortune blog and included a number of juicy, unconfirmed details that were picked up by The New York Times, BusinessWeek, Washington Post, and Canada’s Globe and Mail, to name a few.

 When Steve Jobs introduced the iPhone in his January 9, 2007, keynote address, he called it “a widescreen iPod, mobile phone, and Internet communicator.” And it was. Later in the speech, he explained that it ran a version of Mac OS X, designed for “desktop-class applications.” And it did—but the iPhone only used the applications that Apple chose to build into its firmware. Developers could only write apps to run in the Web browser, or be installed on hacked, or jailbroken, iPhones.

  The iPod is not only the best-looking and best-selling music player to date but also a springboard from which dozens of accessories have launched and soared. These products turn your iPod from a mere digital music player into multi-functional tool--that happens to play episodes of Family Guy.  Some attachments are so useful that it makes you wonder why Apple didn’t think of it first. In fact, some of these accessories can become so integral to your iPod that it can feel naked without them.
