Paint programs for Mac

I have been wondering for a while: Why doesn't iLife '08 come with a paint program? Well, unfortunately it doesn't, although I hope it does come out in iLife '09, but for now, there are no guarantees, and probably not even a whisper of it.

I have found two FREE programs: Pixen and Paintbrush. Is Pixen for the people who want to just draw and mess around? No. Pixen is for pixel painters who paint pixel by pixel. It is hard, trust me. It took a while for me to highlight my profile picture in Blogger. People who are looking for Microsoft Paint alternatives are recommended to use Paintbrush. Otherwise you'd have a headache if you are not experienced and use Pixen.

(Why have I done this post? First, I couldn't resist doing a post, second, I am not sure that I will be converting my blog to a fully hosted Wordpress host... Right now. While I am sure that I will get a Wordpress blog in the near future, I don't know if I will also move Byzone to it. Wordpress seems an awesome alternative to Blogger, but unfortunately that will mean that I will have to convert the Byzone posts to Wordpress, or leave all the posts behind and start a new blog. I will first experiment Wordpress with my personal blog, THEN if it I like it, I will be moving to the Wordpress host. Sorry guys.)

Moving to Wordpress

Byzone will be moving to a hosted Wordpress soon. The whole page will be redesigned, but content won't be moved... Well, if there is an option for it, I'll do it.

I hope everything will be all right during the move. We may not move, but moving to Wordpress is being considered right now.

http://byzone.blogspot.com will still be live though, for people wanting to see the old version of Byzone.

New MacBook Pro

My friend confirmed that these set of pictures looked extremely real of the new and upcoming MacBook Pro:

My opinion: It looks incredibly horrible. Yes, we were told by AppleInsider that the new MacBooks and MacBook Pros would consist of the new MacBook Air and the iMacs design-MacBook Air's thinness and aluminium plus the iMac's black borderings around the screen.

Yes, I felt very uneasy about that when it was first talked about but I didn't think much about it. Well, it was obvious that a redesign was coming but I hoped for something much better.

I think that the new design doesn't really match but my friend, the same person that said that it looked very authentic, said that it looked awesome.

The reason why I think it doesn't really match is that half of it is black, half of it is silver. The trackpad is black, but the button on the trackpad is silver. The speakers and the laptop bottom area is silver. The area around the screen and the back of the laptop is black.

I hope it is fake, but if it's real, I'm sure Steve Jobs will find some way to convince us to buy it. But for now, I hate it.

Mac Mini-A Quick Glance

I'm going to do a Quick Glance again, and since I don't have a Mac Mini, I can't do a full review. Although I have seen some videos though, and I might embed it here tommroow.

The Mac Mini is currently the cheapest, LEGAL, Mac right now. The dimensions of it is really small... It's 6.5 times 6.5 times 2. The specs are quite good for a cheap Mac, and affordable for people who don't want to buy an iMac.

The Mac Mini design is really good, because it is small but powerful enough for daily tasks such as sending email, doign spreadsheets, typing up homework, but is also capable of watching DVDs and making movies using iMovie.

This is a video from VvCompHelpvV for his unboxing of the Mac Mini.

The Mac Mini comes standard with iLife '08, the suite of software that Apple has decided to give out for free when you buy a new Mac. iLife '08 contains iWeb, a easy beginner website maker, iPhoto, a photo editor, iMovie, a video editor (Good for the novice user, and people who want to continue using iMovie '06 can download the upgrade from the Apple website), iDVD where you can watch videos and burn videos that you made with iMovie '08/'06 to a CD/DVD and then watch it on a TV or something like that, Garage Band, a music mixer/editor that comes with preset soundtracks, but it is also good for recording your own music.

It comes with an ethernet area, one FireWire port, one DVI/VGA port, FOUR USB ports, one security slot (Capable of using Kensington's security wire thing), headphone and speaker jack, and a line-in thingy, whatever it is.

It uses the standard Intel Core 2 Duo processor and comes in 1GB RAM for the lowest configuration and can be bumped up to 2 GB.

The good thing is that you can use your own mouse, keyboard, and screen that you are used to unless you don't want to, and has a really good design and can be stowed away if you want to.

I suggest you buy it if you want to test drive a mac at home, but if you really want to just have a quick glance and use of it, just go to your nearest Apple Store.

Choose a Vista!

Ok, I'm going to embed the Choose a Vista commercial (Official) and a spoof of it (Fan made, thumbs up to the person who made it). I might also include a short mini thought review on the current Mac Mini.

Choose a Vista! ... What about Choose a Leopard? :D

Fan made Choose a Vista. :D

I also found a "Most Annoyving Windows Vista sound". Laptop in the video is either a Power Book or a MacBook Pro.

A virus song?

Cool XP song.

Vista remix.

And the iBand.

Sorry, I didn't have enough time to put a Mac Mini mini-thought review right now, so I'd probably do it tomorrow or something as a separate post.

Sony Notebooks-A Quick Glance

I'm going to do a quick Sony Notebooks-A Quick Glance. No photos here, unfortunately, because this, of course, is a quick glance at what people might like.

Ok. I have picked out the 4 laptops people might buy if they have around a $1500-2000 budget. (Budget is not accurate, it's just a estimate from me.)

The Sony Z series. The business+basic home using laptop.
The Sony TZ series. The ultra portable business laptop.
The Sony AR series. The entertainment laptop.
The Sony ASR series. The All in One laptop.

Unfortunately, the AR has been kicked from the quick glance, due to the fact that it's purpose is not mainly for business/school users. AR is usually for video editors, web designers, entertainment (Watching videos, ...) users.

Ok, lets start off with the look and the price. The Z series combines an attractive power button from TZ and the use of AR. The prices are a combination of TZ and SR, starting at meagre $1799.99 for a good designed laptop.

We're going to put TZ out too, because of the price and the fact that not much stuff comes with the price.

The SR series laptop is kind of like the Z series but instead of having a HDMI port, it replaces it with a USB port. Both designs are kind of the same, and they both have the 6 hours standard battery life, but I prefer the Z series keyboard because the SR series keyboard is really dull: black on black, while Z series has black on silver.

SR series has more processor power and this so called unique switch mode, whatever it is, but Z series has more options such as blu-ray, solid state disk (SSD), and is lighter than SR.

I would prefer Z series because of the things I said above, although you can choose one of the laptops that I have chosen for this quick glance.

Windows Vista System Requirements

After looking at my friend's quad core 4 GB RAM Nvidia 8800 GT desktop equipped with Windows Vista Ultimate, I decided to take a look at the minimum Windows Vista system requirements.

Here is what I found on Microsoft.Com on Windows Vista Home Premium+:
-At least 1 Ghz processor for 32 bit Vista.
-At least 1 GB RAM.
-40 GB hard drive space, minimum, with 15 GB space available.
-128 graphics card capable of DX9.

ZNET believes that is inaccurate. These are the requirements it state that is needed to run Vista "properly":
-2.0 Ghz dual core processor
-256 video RAM graphics card, need to be able to support DirectX 9.
-100GB Hard drive, 50 GB free.

Product Review-Bandwidth Monitor

Product Review-Bandwidth Monitor
Type: Networking Tool
Platform: Windows XP/Vista (Tested on XP)
Download Link:
Rating: 4.5/5

I originally scoured the web looking for a bandwidth monitor to see how much MB I use while using the internet every day and found different ones, and I looked at reviews and other things.

I finally picked Bandwidth Monitor and downloaded it. The interface is acceptable although it can be made better (I have no idea how it can be improved, but I just think it can be.) It also logs down how much you download and upload in MB (I am not torrenting. I am downloading LEGAL wallpapers, fonts, ...) and using the internet to browse, game, ...

I think it is ok and you should be using it. And if you're wondering what is my internet usage for today, here is the statistics: Downloaded: 622.51 MB. Uploaded: 973.03 MB. I have no idea how uploaded is higher than downloaded. Probably my backup software. (Review may be coming soon.)

-Byzone Founder and Contributing Author

I am also going to ad new tags for product reviews. Coming soon.

(Note from editor: Hello guys, this is going to be my last positive review for now until it is noted in my blog, FyreWhirl. There is something really bad going on... Sorry again. I spared enough "light energy" (or other known as normalness to you) for this post. )

Test Drive: Google Chrome

Test Drive: Google Chrome
Vendor: Google Inc
Type: Internet Browser
Platform: Windows XP/Vista (More coming soon, according to Google)
Download Link: Google
Rating: 5/5

(Test drives are the reviews that I'm doing while I'm installing and testing the product."

I just downloaded Google Chrome off Google, and scanned it with KIS 2009 (Review on KIS coming soon.) No viruses.The application itself is a surprising 474 KB. I'm going through a fairly simple setup right now, it's actually downloading Google Chrome through the installer, so actually the installer isn't 474. It's just the downloader.

It's done now. What I like about Google Chrome is the Vista-like interface but it's speedily... Actions.

It has a clean user interface (Which I really like) and by clean, I mean, it is really "clean". There's mostly light colors like white and blue and is really easy on users. (Especially newer users. They would like it. It's very user friendly.)
It loads the websites that you have been to really fast. I think I'm going to use Google Chrome over Firefox now.

And Google's Chrome browser is up and beyond today's limits. It is faster, each tab is in a sandbox so that if one crashes the whole browser does not crash, has a private browsing option (Google Chrome calls it Incognito window)

It also includes a "most visted website" feature which appears when you open a new tab. I think that it's quite cool how it does that, because it's quite good for statistics and also for recording the websites that you usually go to for fun.

The controls are mostly like Firefox: Ctrl D opens up the bookmark option, etc.

One big difference is that when you click on a text box a yellow border appears. Probably it's because it's very user friendly and sometimes people forget which text box they type in when they are logging in and might accidentally type their password in the username area and thus, exposing their passwords to bystanders.

One bad thing about Google Chrome is that it will take your information (IP address, things you type into the browser URL bar) and send it back to Google so they can analyze it. If you don't mind this privacy issue, then go ahead and use Chrome.

Speed Download Lite for Mac Review

I particularly like this downloader since it had a clean, and as some people would call it, a "mac-like" interface.

I was downloading a trial of iWork using Safari (3)'s integrated download manager an first of all, it went from 55kbps down to 3kbps (Yes, my Internet is horrible, I'm planning of switching it.)

I then closed the lid of my MacBook, and then I re-opened it, thinking that it would resumed normally, and when I resumed, it went back to 0%.

So then I searched around for a good downloader for Mac an found Speed Download Lite.

I downloaded it and tried to use it to download the iWork trial. So far I'm very satisfied, with it buzzing at 11.3kbps. (Probably it has to do with the weather/summer?)

It has enough options and can be bought for $25 at the time of writing.

If you wanted to buy a good downloaded for Mac, and could spare $25, then this is what you should buy.

(The support is great! I once contacted customer service through email and they replied very fast, almost instantaneously.)

MobileMe... The Next Generation Of Online Services.

Wow... From .Mac (Dot Mac), a beginning online service that basic things (Well basic, compared to MobileMe), now upgraded to MobileMe!

This is a revolutionary new service (The best offer I have ever seen before for this type of service... Well, this is the only service of this kind I have seen so far...) created by... *Drum Rolls* Apple!!!

Email, contacts, calendar, applications, files, all located on your technology-Windows, Mac, iPod Touch, iPhone.

You got all your mail from the two different operating system synced together:
Microsoft Outlook, on Windows, and Mail, on Mac. The mail function, the calendar, and the address book, both in Mac OS X and your iPod Touch/iPhone.

And the applications from .Mac (Excluding the bookmark function) are also included in the MobileMe service. Mail, with a redesigned interface online, calendar, address book, photo sharing, and iDisk.

"It's your desktop on the Web."-Apple.Com
"Safe. Secure. And no spam."-Apple.Com says, commenting on the Mail feature.
"Your personal hard drive online."-Apple.Com

I think this will be an excellent service, and I look forward to using it.

(This doesn't count as a review because I haven't used it yet... Hopefully, I will though. :D)

MobileMe is .Mac, but will be competing against Windows Live Mesh (That's the name, I think)... I think MobileMe will be more successful... People who currently have and are using the .Mac service will be "upgraded" for free to the MobileMe service.

Firefox AddOn Comes with Adware...

For those users keen on installing Firefox Add-Ons (I have to agree that I am one... I love installing different add-ons and testing them... Not the beta ones though. They crash... Often.), think again about installing that new ultra shiny plugin.

Mozilla warns on the 7th of May that a Firefox Add-On that has a malicious adware code in it has been downloaded thousands of times over the past few months.

That particular add-on was the Vietnamese Language Pack for Firefox 2. The Mozilla Security Chief states that users that have downloaded the Vietnamese Language Pack from February 18, 2008 and above had the certain malicious code in the language pack. She also said: "Mozilla does virus scans at upload time but the virus scanner did not catch this issue until several months after the upload. Mozilla is now going to add additional scans of its software to prevent this kind of thing from happening in the future."

The adware that was in the language pack was the Trojan Xorer but just displays annoying banners.

The language pack is very popular among users and has been downloaded 16K+ since the release of the add-on in November.

Users that have downloaded this particular plug-in in the certain time frame should disable this immediately.

Product Review- Avira AntiVir Personal

Product Review-Avira AntiVir Personal
Vendor: Avira GmbH
Type: Antivirus
Platform: Windows XP/Vista
Download Link: Free-AV.Com
Rating: 4.5/5

Avira AntiVir Personal from Avira GmbH comes back with a faster scanning speed and a new look. Best of all, it's free of charge.

Avira has it's well known "umbrella" logo and simple but unique interface. Now it has been upgraded to a sleek, silverish look. The upgrade comes free, as always, to users using the (Free) Avira AntiVir Personal. Existing users can upgrade to it by right clicking the antivirus icon and clicking "Start Update".

The whole new interface has been applied to most (I think all) of the Avira windows-The control panel, the updater, the scanner, ...

As announced on the website, the scanning speed has been improved by quite a lot. I can now see that the bar is moving faster than the old version of Avira.

Unlike some free trials that disable updating after a certain time (Usually 30 days), the "Avira Guard" and the update system remain intact (If you download the Avira AntiVir Personal). Some setbacks are that the Updater has low piority (Premium and paying users get higher piority) and that an advertisement (No viruses, adware, or other such. The advertisements only try to convince you to upgrade to Avira AntiVir Premium...)

Avira's scanning options are very flexible, with the options of scanning the Local Drives, Local Hard Drives, Removable Drives (CD, USB, things that are plugged in to the computer that is a storage area and can be pulled out), Windows System Directory, Complete System Scan, My Documents, Active Processes (This scan is very useful if you don't want to slow down your computer that much but want to see if theres any viruses running, although full system scan is more effective.), Rootkit Search, and Manual Selection (You select the drives that are to be scanned.)

Avira comes with it's own "AntiVir Guard", which scans on demand. Avira also comes with a quarantine area where infected files are stored and cannot do harm while in quarantine.

You can schedule scanning times and there is a section set aside that features the scanning reports.

Overall, Avira is very good but the looks make it go down. The full scan scanning is very powerful but takes a while to sift through your files.

Avira's interface is very easy to work about and the options for Avira is customizable.

Notes: May need flash, javascript plugins and cookies enabled to use/view this site/service.
URL: www.piczo.com

Piczo was one of the first websites that I used a couple of years ago to build my first website. This website is quite good for beginner bloggers and website makers, but this is not flexible enough. It is moderately hard to organize but beginners will find it really easy to use because each section of the website can be moved to anywhere onto the website.

This website has a good community and there are extras such as a button where you could rate the Piczo site that you are at, built in hit counters, and more.

The design has been upgraded since the last time I used it and is quite pleasant to use if you are a beginner.

The web builder features a text based window where you can add functions to the website and supports some HTML and Javascript.

Unfortunately unlike Blogger, this does not have a RSS feed system so bloggers may like to steer away from this.

The good thing about this service is that it has a simple picture upload area and you can easily make your own albums online and share it with your friends and family.

Travian is a browser based RTS (Real Time Strategy) game online. This game can be reached through this link. It is a lightweight yet interesting and stunning graphics for such a fast loading online game (RTS).

Byzone invites RTS "Specialist" Leez Shadowing for a talk about Travian.

"Hello LeezShadows, what was your first impression of Travian?"
LeezShadows says: "Well, Travian was a simple impressive game," "The gameplay was quite good but the graphics could be improved."

FyreVortex then asked: "What do you think about Travian's overall loading speed? After all, Byzone considers Travian as one of the lightweight online browser RTSes."
"It's quite fast but it's a bit slow in loading." Says LeezShadowing. "It can be improved by downloading a graphic pack onto your computer and loading graphics through that instead. By doing that, it'll boost the speed up."

We then talked about the gameplay. "Yes, it's very good for business people who are bored," Leez chats, "The buildings will build by themselves and the resources will drain in even if you're logged off."

Well, we've taken enough time from LeezShadowing the RTS "Specialist" now.

Travian, overall is a good game if you want a simple but straight forward game and fast loading graphics, but if you want to start wars "early", then you should read our next Byzone Game Review... Tribal Wars.

Wuala-"Unlimited Storage Space"

Wuala is a new service that allows you to share things online for free. You could share it to friends, your family members, colleagues, ... Sounds good, doesn't it? Files, Music, Videos, Games, and more! Unfortunately, as always, offers may not be what it seems.

You get 1 Gibabyte of storage for free, but then if you want to continue sharing... You have to "donate" some space from your own hard drive... But then you also get to use part of the other Wuala users' hard drives... So it's "shared"...

It's kind of like the service that Torrent and Limewire uses. But Wuala splits the file you are sharing into 500+ pieces and they are sent to thousands of other user's hard drives. It's easy to download something off, because plenty of users have that file and they all send... Well, the service sends the pieces of file to you.

Obviously, your computer has to be online often, so the Wuala community "rewards" the user with more storage space.

There are also privacy options and you can choose to whether you want to private it, who you want to share it with, and so on.

If you want to check the it out go to this link. Wuala. Also, the files are encrypted so you won't have to worry about it.
