I didn’t receive a good news right in the beginning of 2015 to PowerPC community. Recently I found out that the great application/cloud storage Dropbox is dropping the support for PowerPC machines. This will leave us behind for good, not being able to sync devices with PowerPC computers will drop us down.
I really hope Dropbox will reconsider the decision and I believe many users of dropbox are PowerPC users due other computers/devices has their own cloud applications.
I want to point out the people from VivaPowerPC wrote a letter to Dropbox team and let’s hope they will supporting us.
We can always use the social media to let @dropbox know we are using the app.
Open letter from VivaPowerPC: http://vivapowerpc.blogspot.cz/2015/01/an-open-letter-to-dropbox-team.html
We are really on the edge but to use a PowerPC it’s a matter of option at this point.
Who doesn’t want be DJ?
I would say that djaying is one of the most time consuming thing to do with your computer if you are into music and throw party to friends.
Sad news to get the newest Macbook Air or Macbook Pro just to djaying is very expensive, so why not look for an old cheap option like PowerBook or iBook, most of people won’t know the different unless you are using a very cool colour iBook G3 or a PowerBook Pismo/Wallstreet that the Apple logo is upside down.
Either way you can install a old version of Djay (3.1.2) totally compatible with Mac OS X 10.5. Of course there are some limitations when you compare the most recent 4.2.3, but the application run just fine and you will rock the party… …as long as your music rocks, of course.
Have fun guys.
