That’s right, I said it! And by ‘it’ I mean the word TECHY… Looking up the latest Nikon and Mac rumors is usually as techy as I ever get; so, building a Hackintosh was completely out of my realm [speaking of realms, didn’t The Game of Thrones season just end? Time to watch it!]. For those who never heard of a Hackintosh, it’s basically a PC that runs on the MacOS… which, I now own. It makes me and my workflow incredibly happy. It runs exactly like a Mac, but way faster than my 2009 MacBook Pro and at a fraction of the cost. There are obviously a few issues like no built in BlueTooth or WiFi, but these are minor. I also forgot just how many cables Desktop computers require, but since I won’t be moving it anywhere, I think the Hack and I are cool.
The other techy news is that I finally got my own Spyder4 Pro monitor calibrator. My screens were slowly getting off their proper colours and borrowing one from a friend just got old. So I picked one up at the Exposure Show, and I’m now back in the ‘properly calibrated’ game!
Lastly, while in NYC, my iPhone4 was stolen (partially my fault). So I’m back to my faithful ol’ Motorola Pebl (circa 2005) with an amazing five day battery and nothing else! If you wonder what that archaic technology looks like, go here; I bet you had one! For now, I’m waiting for the iPhone5 to come out. I miss instagram, and notes…and email…and maps and… everything else. So if anyone is kind enough to let me borrow their unused 4, or 4s in the meantime, that would be amazing!
Here is my brother hard at work putting my Hack together. Ahhh, I love my techy family. If anyone would like to know the full build of my Hack, leave a message.
