Monstrous Posters by Maurice Sendak

Maurice Sendak's birthday would have celebrated his 86th birthday this week. Sadly, he rumpused his last in 2012, and therefore won't come across this tribute to him on his birthday. Via Brain Pickings we discover the wondrous book Posters by Maurice Sendak, a large format/coffeetable book ofâwell, of his posters. Some of them are the "yay reading!" type found in libraries and classrooms, which are the ones I remember most vividly, as they hung in the libraries and classrooms where I spent lots of time as a kid. In fact I convinced my mom to hang one in her classroom for me because I loved it so much. Head over to Brain Pickings and check out some images from this book. And if you're inspired to start a wild rumpus, well, that's on you.

CrazyTalk Animator 2 for Mac Plus Training Videos...

We have a deal today on animation tool called CrazyTalk Animator 2 Standard for Mac. This is an animation product designed, in part, for people who aren't artists. It comes with a wide array of stock characters that can then be customized in any number of ways. It also has the ability to turn 2D photos into talking characters. One of the things I like about this deal is that it also includes six hours of training videos to help you learn how to use the software. You get the software plus the training videos for $49, but the sale ends in six days.

Starbucks announced Thursday that wireless charging is being rolled out nationwide. In a partnership with Duracell, the company said it was installing Powermat charging spots at all locations, starting in San Francisco.

MacTech Conference Discounts Good Through Sunday...

MacTech Conference has quickly become one of my favorite new conferences. It's small, you can really get to know everyone, you eat most/all meals together, and it really is all about community and learning simultaneously. Now in its 5th year, MacTech Conference has built up a bit of a name, not only for the aforementioned aspects (especially the learning), but also for its evening activities. While MacTech isn't quite ready to tell us exactly what this year's special event is, this picture they sent along today might give us some idea, especially when couched amongst the conference's history.

Amazon threw its hat into the streaming music game on Thursday with the launch of its Prime Music service. Prime Music is free for Amazon Prime subscribers, includes over 1 million songs, and several hundred curated playlists.

Dropbox gets into Chat with Droptalk Purchase

Online storage company Dropbox has purchased the messaging service Droptalk -- a company you likely didn't even know existed. Droptalk's Web-based messaging service was still in beta and available only as a Google Chrome add-on, but it does give Dropbox a presence in the chat market along with the company's coders.

The Mac Observer Spin: Dropbox clearly wants to be the go-to service for online storage and file syncing, and buying Droptalk could make the company a strong player in document collaboration, too.

Sir Mix-A-Lot With the Seattle Symphony

Seattle Symphony has a series called Sonic Evolutions, where they perform music from and inspired by local artists, so it was only a question of time before Sir Mix-A-Lot made it on the list. As a native of the Pacific Northwest, I was a Sir Mix-A-Lot fan way before Baby Got Back, because he was a "local" rapper, and let's be honest, before Macklemore, he was the only one. So without further adieu, I will link you to the video for Baby Got Back which is making the rounds, but below is the video of the other song he performed, Posse On Broadway, one of my favorites from Sir Mix-A-Lot (it's in regular rotation on my iPhone). Definitely check out both videos, they're fun to watch.

NSA Eavesdropping: Your iPhone isn’t Safe Even when...

The NSA has a reputation for spying on whoever they please and mass data collection from people who aren't suspects in crimes, and the agency can listen in on your conversations through your iPhone's built-in microphone even if the device is turned off. That trick can't, however, happen unless the NSA has gained physical access to your iPhone and installed either a hardware or software implant designed to make it appear your smartphone is off even though it isn't.

The Mac Observer Spin: It says a lot about the level of trust people have in the U.S. government when the discussion turns to ways to prevent the NSA from eavesdropping on our personal conversations.

The Mac Observer Spin: This generally means a permanent deal on gift cards, which is awesome for anyone. Not to mention getting a crack at being one of the devices at those displays in Costco, which is one of the few places left that doesn't seem to sell anything from Cupertino.

After the warnings gained media attention, Verizon threatened legal action if Netflix didn't stop.

The Mac Observer Spin: Netflix backed down, which means either Verizon won this round or Netflix played a gamble to force the ISP into more talks about bandwidth availability. Either way, it's pretty clear Verizon isn't interested in a Net Neutrality that's equally open for all data.

Researchers Find Yet Another Major OPenSSL Security...

As if Heartbleed wasn't enough of a headache for OpenSSL, security researchers have found another major flaw that lets attackers bypass the protocol's encryption without being detected. The flaw exploits the OpenSSL handshake to force sending and receiving computers to use weak passwords attackers can decrypt through man in the middle attacks.

The Mac Observer Spin: OpenSSL is a powerful tool for encrypting information passing between your computer and Web servers, but this threat and Heartbleed show it isn't necessarily as safe as previously thought. The OpenSSL team is stretched thin, so there just isn't enough manpower to stay on top of every security issue. Translation: Don't blindly assume the information passing between your computer and Internet servers is always encrypted.

Episode Nine – Change the People

Pardon the break, we’re back with a long-ago recorded episode to give you all flashbacks to the MacIT conference, audibly. Hopefully the sound quality is passable, as it was recorded under less-than ideal conditions, but what an episode! We have Duncan McCracken, newly added to the advisory board of the MacIT conference, being prodded by Charles Edge (returning host and now former CTO of 318, Inc.) about Australian Rules ‘Football’ and animals down under.

Patchoo! Casper patching done right.

 

Patchoo is here and aims to bring some Munki-esque features and workflow to Casper. We all know that Casper has some gaps around patch deployment. Whilst Casper 9 somewhat improves capabilities there is still no cohesive way for an end user to install 3rd party and Apple Software Updates. Munki does this (and much more) effortlessly.

There have been many discussions and great scripts shared on JAMFnation, but again none of them could bring the same user experience and admin capabilities that Munki could provide. Originally Patchoo started life with a even sillier name (munki for jamf a.k.a. junki) and was a project to integrate munki into Casper by pulling data from the JSS. After a lot of head scratching, I...

Securing a Munki deployment with Puppet SSL...

Munki and Puppet have become very popular tools in the last few years, and make a great team for Mac management.  While Puppet is inherently secure due to its use of client-certificate based SSL for all communication, most Munki deployments still run over plaintext HTTP.  One of the best features of Puppet is its included Certificate Authority, and we can make great use of this to secure other services such as Munki.

Running Munki over HTTP is problematic for two reasons. First, it leaves organizations open to man-in-the-middle attacks, whereby an attacker can compromise a machine with Munki installed by spoofing the DNS entry for the server hosting the repository.  By doing this, clients will check into the attacker’s server and install any software or configuration presented.  This can easily result in compromised machines, and this is especially important for machines which leave a secure campus network.

The second issue with having a Munki repository served over...

Looking Forward to MacTech Conference 2014

It’s hard to believe, but the fifth, yes the fifth, annual MacTech conference will be held this year in Los Angeles, CA at the beautiful Manhattan Beach Marriott from November 5th-7th, with a full day of pre-conference workshops occurring on November 4th. I’ve been fortunate enough to have been able to attend MacTech Conference every year since it’s inception, and trust me, it is not an event you’ll want to miss. MacTech Conference consistently has some of the best session content from some of the most talented speakers in the industry along with the best evening networking-building events you’ll ever experience, period.

It may seem a bit early to begin thinking about/planning for a conference that isn’t until November, but the discounted room rate for the hotel (link below) is expected to sell out quickly. Also, MacTech is offering an amazing “super early bird” discount price of just $899 until June 15th. That’s a $600 savings over the normal cost of a ticket.

Vendetta Online Adds Station Conquest

February 1, 2010 6:00 AM

Guild Software has added a new feature for its massively-multiplayer online space strategy game, Vendetta Online. Station Conquest gives groups of players the chance to attack a space station and take control of it. Planned updates for the new feature include holding territory around the station and manufacture of automated drones for mining.

This new gameplay mechanic allows groups of players to coordinate their attacks on a particular station, seizing control of it through the disabling of defense turrets, and taking direct ownership via a new "key" based hierarchical authentication system. Owner keys may then be distributed to other leaders, while various User keys may be generated and given to those needing only more limited types of access. The entire conquest system will be expanded over the coming months to allow surrounding territory to be held for the benefit of the station, while automated drones may be manufactured to mine ores...

Ten New Diablo III Screenshots Unveiled

February 2, 2010 6:00 AM

Blizzard Entertainment recently posted ten new screenshots from Diablo III, the game company's eagerly anticipated return to the action RPG franchise. The game will allow players to revisit the world of Sanctuary where they must once again take up arms against the demonic forces threatening humanity.

Diablo III will pick up the story twenty years after the events of Diablo II. Mephisto, Diablo, and Baal have been defeated, but the Worldstone, which once shielded the inhabitants of the world of Sanctuary from the forces of both the High Heavens and the Burning Hells, has been destroyed, and evil once again stirs in Tristram. Playing as a hero from one of five distinct character classes, players will acquire powerful items, spells, and abilities as they explore new and familiar areas of Sanctuary and battle hordes of demons to safeguard the world from the horrors that have arisen.

Diablo III will feature a custom 3D-graphics...

Of course, everyone looks at it as, Well, id was purchased by Zenimax! but I think its just as true that we acquired an internal publishing capacity, said Todd Hollenshead. Thats really what the relationship is. As much as we have valued our publishing relationships with other thirdparty publishers in the past, there is a difference, because we were separate companies. Although we were trying to work together, ultimately there is an idea that we have divergent goals.

Its actually worked out really well. They value development for its own sake, rather than just trying to put something in a box and relying on marketing for sales, said Hollenshead. They believe in the quality of the product you put in and the value of the entertainment the...

Land Air Sea Warfare Coming Soon To Macs

February 3, 2010 6:00 AM

Isotope 244 recently announced work on a Mac version of the recently released Land Air Sea Warfare, a new game from the developers of Machines at War. The strategy war game features 70 new types of units, new technologies, and six "gigantic mega units" for players to control.

After two years of development I have finally completed my next game! It builds on my previous real time strategy game Machines at War and takes it in a different direction. Battles are now a rich mix of different types of units and your headquarters can even be in the sea! There are over 70 new types of units, new technologies, and six gigantic mega units which are awesome in battle! I would list all of the changes, but looking at my work log there are over 800 of them! I will be working on the Mac version next and am still developing the game every day, so if you have any suggestions for the game please let me know. - James Bryant

Apple's article includes an overview of the game, comments from developer Mike Simpson, a history of the Roman era, and a list of cheat codes.

As your territory grows, youll also need to keep an eye on the home front. Citizens taxed too heavily may threaten to revolt, while poorly-maintained settlements are more susceptible to plague outbreaks that will decimate their population and reduce the amount of Denarii they contribute to your coffers. However, if you capture a settlement located in a province with a World Wonder such as the Great Pyramid of Giza or the Lighthouse of Alexandria youll earn powerful empire-wide benefits.

Warhammer Online: Age Of Reckoning Reviewed

February 5, 2010 6:00 AM

Mac|Life has posted a new review of the Mac version of Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning. The game features Realm vs Realm combat and allows players to enter a grim fantasy world where the armies of Order and Destruction collide to determine the fate of nations. Mac|Life gave Warhammer Online a score of 4 out of 5.

From the review:
Really, the expectation is that youve played this kind of game before and know the implications of your decisions, so anyone unfamiliar with the MMORPG universe will likely stumble through their first 10 levels or so. Fortunately, once you get the hang of it, the experience is rich and rewarding. You can embark on solo quests, start battles alongside other players, fight against other players, join guilds, start guilds, craft items, and explore the enormous (and beautiful) world.

The games main focus is realm-versus-realm and player-versus-player combat, where the two factions square off for...
