  1. The Best Games in the Mac App Store at Launch

    The Mac App Store launched earlier today, bringing the relative ease and slight addictiveness of obtaining programs the iOS way to Apple's computers, finally allowing OS X users to nickel-and-dime our e-wallets to death the way all those iPhone and iPad users get to. Upon browsing the store, in the midst of the obligatory litany of throw-away games and limited demos masquerading as free games lies a decent amount of extremely worthwhile and critically acclaimed games -- something most platforms don't generally accomplish at launch.

Update: We've written a comprehensive roundup of all the big announcements this afternoon.

    Yet more fallout from Google's Chinese security breach earlier this year: According to the Financial Times, Google is phasing out support for all versions of Microsoft's Windows operating system, calling the change a "security effort."

    According to the report, since the attacks on Google by Chinese hackers in January, new Google employees have been given a choice between OS X and Linux. "'Linux is open source and we feel good about it,” said one employee. “Microsoft we don’t feel so good about.'"

    Kind of like Windows 7? Want to give Microsoft a chance? Well, you'll need lots of top-level corporate approval to do so:

  6. Man Converts Original 1984 Macintosh to Run Snow Leopard … And You Can Too

    MacHeads are a competitive, obsessive bunch, but graphic designer and Instructables member gmjhowe may have just secured himself a place in the Apple pantheon: He took an original 1984 Macintosh computer, with its princely 8mhz processor, and converted it to run OS X Snow Leopard. He also posted instructions on how you, too can do so, provided you've got patience, tech skills, and a fairly substantial budget:
