October 23, 1999: Apple releases Mac OS 9, the last version of the classic Mac operating system before the company will make the leap to OS X a couple years later. It does not veer far from OS 8 in terms of look and feel. However, OS 9 adds a few nifty features that make
Window Snyder transformed how Microsoft, Apple and Mozilla dealt with software threats. She served as the security lead for the Windows XP Service Pack 2 update, which fixed a wide variety of vulnerabilities in a notoriously buggy OS. And at Apple, she helped manage security on iOS and OS X. Now, she's taking on the role of Intel's first Chief Security Officer, where she's responsible for revamping how the company protects its products and customers. Obviously, she has her work cut out for her.
I've been doing a lot of Raspberry Pi retrogaming lately, and have tried a lot of different gamepad controllers. The best controllers, in my estimation, are the ones made by 8BitDo. They've introduced a new model, the SN30 ($30), and it comes in colors matching the old Game Boy Pockets. They pair with Raspberry Pi, Switch, OS X, iOS, Android, and Windows.

My own efforts to get it working under the Raspbian distribution on the Raspberry Pi led me to instead download a Pi Ubuntu image. So having it running with the support of Microsoft on Windows will add some welcome variety.
When you receive a PDF document by email that you must sign, the process of printing out the file, signing on the dotted line with a pen, scanning the signed document and sending it back can be a rather tedious task. Fortunately, Apple has added the ability to electronically sign a PDF document using Preview, a program that comes preinstalled on every Mac running OS X Lion or later.
If you were hoping to revert back to High Sierra, or install an older OS X on a partition or VM, you will not be able to get the installer if you are running Mojave
Dark mode is one of the most visible new features in macOS Mojave, and is the most radical change to the interface of Apple's operating systems since the advent of Mac OS X in 2001. This setting allows you turn most of what you see into a sort of negative view: instead of black text on
Gone are the days when a new operating system boasts hundreds of new features, as was the case when Mac OS X was in its adolescent years. Now Apple highlights a dozen or so marquee features for new versions of its desktop operating system even though there are plenty of tweaks under the hood. Last week's
