How to activate the G4 Cube speakers on a modern Mac

CubeMy readers (you) are great. A few years ago, I was asking for help with a little project: the reuse of the Power Mac G4 Cube speakers on a recent Mac. Then Jean designed a small program that allows it.

Transforming a Apple II external floppy drive into a Mac version

Looking for information, I found a hack coming from the 80s : turning a UnidDisk 3.5 (for Apple II, incompatible with Macintosh) into a driver for Mac.

The fantasy of the eGPU and The Wolfe on Kickstarter

I have been using external GPU (eGPU) for years – my first installation is more than 4 years old – and I feel I have some expertise on the subject, especially on OS X. And then, I realize that the reality is widely fantasized by some people, and the success of a Kickstarter project for an external GPU (the Wolfe) shows that there actually is a problem.

Help needed : games for the Pippin

As you may have seen, I have got an Apple Pippin. But I do not own a lot of games, and I am seeking images (ISO) of american games. If you own a game for this console, I shall be interested.

I can either buy you the game (within reasonable limits) or ask you to do me a disk image from a computer, and I can provide a storage space. The purpose is not to spread the games, but only to test the console with programs in english rather than in Japanese.

Thank you in advance.

The DVD subtitles

Subtitles on DVDs. Said like that, it does not seem very entertaining. However, technical solutions are interesting (and not very practical in some cases).
