Apple OS on a PC? Answered

After seeing, I learned that they used iStopMotion for the graphics. Also, I was able to play on a Mac, and I have to say, I kinda dig it. Is there anyway possible for me to install the Apple OS on my computer and still keep my current OS (Windows XP)?

Question by MrL33TPenguin    |  last reply

I hate apple.

So i heard of a few apps from some friends I try them out and I like them. So when I go to the app store to get the apps, they tell me that I have to accept their new terms. Since the wifi at my house is knocked out, I had to wait a very long time for it to load. When it finally loads and I hit that one button, it tells me to try again. That means I have to reload the app store, find that app, and download it again. This is a literal equivalant of an eternity. I wouldn't be whining so much if Apple was nice enough to resume the download when I accepted their licence.

Apple Touch Icon

Could you include an Apple Touch Icon on the website? I know Instructables doesn't have an iOS app. Primary reason being that you want to focus on the website. I fully support that. I would like to add a shortcut to Instructables (my feed) on my iOS devices and I would like the bookmark to have a proper (Apple Touch) icon. Just because it looks nice and I think it would support Instructables' web app approach. Thanks.

Apple scripting question? Answered

I am new to Apple computers, I just got an older system off of ebay for testing purposes and so that I can learn how to use them.  (I want to go into IT for a living, so I will need to learn how to use them.) I need a little help getting started with my first project.  I have made a working program for what I want to do in Windows as a batch file (which I then compiled into an .exe).  For a company that I am starting, people often need to send me large files, and I want to give them a way to do this.  I have two FTP servers (one in the cloud, and one at home that my parents make me shut down every night).  Since these files are large enough that it takes awhile to download them from my cloud server, my script automatically selects which server to use based on the current time.  It then prompts the user to drag and drop their file into the dos window to select the files they wish to upload.  After that, it creates an FTP script which is then executed using the ftp /s command.  This program works great. I would like to get this program working on my mac as well (I realize that I probably can't use the same script, I will have to change it).  I considered using a bash script, but it seems that you would have to start the script from terminal (it can't just be executed by clicking on it like in windows).  I've also looked at automator, but as far as I can see it doesn't even have the ability to upload to FTP. At this point, I just want to make an easy way for people to upload to a specific FTP server without having to enter usernames, passwords, IP addresses/ urls, etc.  I don't even care if it automatically switches between servers like my other script... that is a bonus.  To any mac programmers out there, if you were going to do this; where would you start?  (Stick with bash, applescript, automator, another programming language, etc.) Thanks!

gmjhowe - Apple Fanboy

Well, I made a purchase this sunday just gone.I have bought one of the original Macintoshes from 1984, the model I bought was the Macintosh 512k, called the 'Fat Mac' due to its upgraded ram from 128k to 512k. It was the second model of Macintosh released.The Specs are as follows, Processor Speed: 8 MHzSystem Bus Speed: 8 MHzROM Size: 64kData Path: 16-bitStandard RAM: 512kBuilt-in Display: 9" Monochrome - 512 x 384 1-bitAvg. Weight: 16.5 lbs.Introduction Date: September 10, 1984So, now the question is, what do I do with this? The spec makes it useless as a machine, and I have no OS disk.So far, I have three options, Gut the inside of the mac, and install a new mini-itx system, and make it into a Hackintosh.Gut the insides. Try and fix the free ps3 thats heading my way, install linux on ps3, install inside of macGut the insides, and use it as the shell for a 'companion' tower for my iMac, housing back up drives, USB devices, and my small USB powere 7" mimo screen.Let me know what you think, or suggest new ideas!- gmjhowe

Apple floppy disk?

Hi,    I have been searching for a way to get the info from some floppy disks that were used on an Apple format computer in the early 90's. The disks are 3.5's. I have a disk drive. I have tried to find a converter  program online but none seem to apply to this.  I can't get them on the PC because if they are formatted they lose the data. Does anyone know a way to convert the data to PC inexpensively?    Thanks Much,   Savex

Apple G4, useful?

A friend, who knows I love to demolish things, just gave me an old powermac G4. The freaking thing still works! It has a HDD of 26 and one of 6Gb, as well as an Iomega Zip drive and a CD-R. I'm no fan of apple or anything i-****, but the machine seems to be well built, seems to be a waste to just rip apart for a power supply, some fans and a few super magnets. The university of Amsterdam used to have quite a lot of them in the days... Can this machine still serve a serious purpose (add some value above and beyond a contemporary windows 7/ XP computer)? How about installing new software (no idea about what is available or can be run on OS9.2) Perhaps there is niche software for it, where to find it...?

Apple Magic Mouse problems? Answered

I just got my apple magic mouse about three hours ago and hooked it up to my macbook right when  I got home. The problem is when I try to use the one finger scroll it or the two finger swipe to go back and forward it doesn't work so I'm thinking there's a problem with the multi touch.

Fusion 360 on Apple MacBook

Apple Pie; how to keep the sliced apples from shriveling up?

Cooking in sugar tends to draw the moisture out of the apple and you end up with slim dried out slivers!!  I have had the same trouble if I cook carrots or sweet potatoes in the sugar! To prevent the carrots and sweet potatoes, I cook them separately and at the last minute I add the cooked sugar syrup!  But am at a loss as how to make the apples in a pie that does not shrivel up!

What really happened with Apple and Linux?

                   As a faithful Linux user, I know that I am obligated to disparage and insult Apple every time I receive the opportunity to do so.  What I want to know is why this is so.  I understand the fact that their computers are built really tight and that they (like Microsoft) cater to a market of users that I'm supposed to feel superior to because I can take my computer apart and put it back together.  I generally get a bad, anti-modding vibe from their devices as well.  However, I really have no idea why Apple is so disliked amongst the open-source community.  If anyone could explain what all of this is about (specifically Apple's use of Unix), I would much appreciate it.

How to connect a landline to Mac on OS X?

---The Problem---- I've searched high and low for something that will allow me to connect my normal landline (see links at bottom of post) to my MacBook Pro (2.16GHz core 2 duo, on OS X Snow Leopard).  The landline is my work landline, so I can't change it. I really just want to connect it to my Mac through its "To TEL" port, which according to the manual is for connecting phones in parallel. The minimum I want to be able to do is get audio from the landline to my computer's speakers and audio to it from my computer's speakers. My goal is to be able to work handsfree on my computer while I type. I'm not keen on a headset for the landline because I hate cables and get tangled up while I type. If I get my voice routed through to the phone through the Mac's microphone and sound to come out through my speakers from the caller's voice I'd be jumping for joy. I'd be rocketing for joy if through some way I managed to use an AppleScript I found (see links at bottom of post) to dial out of AddressBook to the landline. That would be tres cool, but that'd be me getting greedy. ----What I've been able to find out (I'm pretty clueless)------ PCs can do this with an RJ11 to USB adapter. There are rumors that the DLink DPH-50U works with OS X with a driver no one can seem to find. Apple stopped making their USB external modems, which didn't cater for voice anyway. I'm willing to buy stuff to make something if I need, although if it comes to writing drivers I'd need a lot of direction. ----The question----- Does anyone have any clever ideas on how to solve the problem? ----Links------ My landline manual: AppleScript to dial from AddressBook:;=10 Most thankful in advance for any ideas!
