…There has been a MacHeist?

MacHeist

MacHeist is My Dream App creator Phill Ryu’s newest pet project, and once again, it looks to be both an innovative and entertaining adventure for the Apple community. Though details are scarce (there’s only an e-mail sign up on the page currently), the blogosphere has, as always, pulled through with some “inside/secret” information about what’s going on. Apparently, MacHeist will be a five-week long event, culminating with the sale of an “uber bundle”, and including a bunch of free Mac apps along the way. Active users of the site will be able to save money on the final uber bundle by completing “heists”, or hacker/thief themed missions (such as “hacking” various Mac sites that are partnered with MacHeist). Also, according to TUAW, this encrypted message appeared on the MacHeist RSS feed (though I’m not quite sure how they managed to access this as yet unmentioned feed):

    3><(||_|$1\/1+`/ \X/@|\|+ +|-|3 1|\|$1[)3 $(00|* @|\|[) @ |-|3@[) $+@|2+? 1|\|q|_|1|23 +|-||20|_|6|-| +|-|3 @|*|*|20|*|21@+3 (|-|@|\||\|3|$.

The project is going to be invite only for the first few weeks, with users drawn from the list of those who signed up through either the MacHeist or the My Dream App site, so head on over and reserve your spot, because you don’t want to be the 11th guy in a PS3 pre-order line now, do you?

…My Dream App winners have been announced?

My Dream App

My Dream App, the Apple software revolution, is over. After calculating nearly 14,000 votes, three winners have been announced. Though they weren’t my top choices, Cookbook, Portal, and Atmosphere will soon see production as full-fledged Mac Apps, and the world should be a better place for it. My only hope is that some other app development teams jump all over the loosing apps, as there were a few ideas buried in there that I was really looking forward to seeing come to life. Congrats to those that made it, and condolences to those that didn’t.

…Google Hearts The Mac?

Google Mac Downloads

Google is finally beginning to show some support for Mac users. They’ve created an Official Google Mac Blog to update users on all the new Google news relating to the Mac. Though there’s currently only one post, it’s a helpful link to Google’s new page for Mac Software Downloads, a useful site for downloading all of the Mac software supported by Google on one page. Some of the programs include Google SketchUp, Google Earth, and Picasa Web Albums Uploader. Plus, they’ve got a Google Mac Sites Search for gathering up all your Mac news in a very Google(y) way.

…Mira lets you use Apple’s Remote on your Mac thanks to Twisted Melon?

Mira

Twisted Melon just released Mira, a program that allows you to use the Apple Remote on any Mac. Besides Front Row, which can be installed using methods detailed on Andrew Escobar’s website, Mira allows you to control any program with the Remote’s customizable buttons, and can even launch documents and run AppleScripts. There are 40 applications built into the software, and you can create additional custom application profiles in just seconds. There is even support of external USB IR Receivers, if your Mac didn’t come with one built in. Sounds like a great solution to adding Apple’s excellent Remote features to your Remote-less Mac.
