The Super Nintendo Entertainment System was a phenomenally fun console that successfully ate up a large portion of my childhood. There are so many classic games from this era that have long been forgotten. If only there were a way to download and play those 16-bit masterpieces on your Mac. Oh wait, there is.
Today we’ll flood your memory with enough digital nostalgia to make you teary eyed by showing you where you can grab these games and play them today. Be sure to read the fine print though as emulating old Nintendo games on your Mac is risky business!
If you’ve been a Mac user for a while, then you’ve probably heard of Fluid. It’s a simple tool that lets you make websites feel like actual apps, with their own webkit-powered window and dock icon. You can customize icons, save userscripts for individual sites, and more. It’s quite the useful app if you use web apps often.
I’ve been using it more frequently lately to replace the Twitter clients I used to have on my Mac. Why, you ask? Well, there are a few reasons. Join me after the break for an example of how you can use Fluid to make your experience with Twitter and other apps on the Internet more up-to-date and smooth.
Although many developers are porting or even rewriting applications designed for Windows to the Mac, many these days still find the need to run Windows on your Mac. I find that need every single day at work. While there are three main ways to get the job done, Parallels has always been my favorite.
Parallels Desktop 7 is a dramatic improvement over the previous version, and brings along a few cool new features. If running alternate operating systems on your Mac is a priority, read on as we dive into the latest version of Parallels Desktop!
As much as I love using Mac OS X, there have been numerous times since I started using a Mac back in 2006 when that I’ve wanted to run a Windows application. While the option of using Boot Camp or another program such as Parallels Desktop has always been there, they both required me to have a licensed copy of Windows (as do many of the other options out there). Being a student, buying a copy of Windows was out of the question and I had to make do without.
WinOnX however, is a nice little program that allows certain Windows applications to be run on OS X (only 10.6 and 10.7 however) without the need to purchase and run a copy of the Windows operating system. In this article I’ll be taking a look at WinOnX, read on for my thoughts.
As we sit on the precipice of another generation of new Macs, I thought it would be fun to take a look back. It’s time to throw open the closets, dig through the garage and climb up into the old dusty attic. We want to know the age of the oldest Mac that you still have in your possession.
Are you a new Mac user who doesn’t even remember the days of the sunflower iMac or are you an old school user who remembers what Macs were like back when Jobs was a long-haired hippie? Perhaps you even owned an Apple computer before the days of the Mac!

May is coming to a close and June is upon us, which means one thing for the Apple community: WWDC, that famed yearly event that sells out faster than a U2 concert. WWDC typically brings with it an exciting look at what’s coming down the pipe for Apple.
With any luck, we’ll get a peek at both new hardware and software that Apple will have us shelling out for all year.

If there’s one game genre I’m all for, it’s board games. I love the feel of the dice in my hands, the touch of crispy play money, the thrill of running after the hourglass, and the exhilaration knowing that I’ve trumped my fellow players.
With that said, I found myself curious of what it’s like to play a digital board game after spotting Ticket to Ride Online on the New and Noteworthy section of the Mac App Store. The icon, the screenshots, and the uber-friendly conductor convinced me to check the game out, plus the fact that its iPad version has garnered numerous game awards in the past.
Will the Mac version of Ticket to Ride Online stand just as tall as its iOS counterpart? Let’s find out.
There’s one more great finance app that our readers keep recommending: You Need a Budget (YNAB). We reviewed it, and it turned out to be such a good app we gave it a 10/10 rating. Be sure to check out our review of You Need a Budget!
Thanks to personal finance applications, managing and tracking budgets, expenses, cash flows, and potential savings is easier than ever and far less time-consuming. We’ve covered quite a few finance apps for the Mac in the past few months, which shows a growing interest in this category.
