I don’t know how many of you still have BlackBerry cellphones, but at one point BlackBerry was cutting edge and considered cool, and in my opinion they still are. I do not own one so I’m not familiar with the system etc, but I found this application which is PowerPC friendly and I would like to share it with you here:
I think it’s high time to “pimp out” our PowerPCs a little bit! In my opinion the G3/G4/G5 are one of the best designs Apple ever launched. They were designed so “out of the box” that even today they still look as modern as they day they were launched. I honestly love the iMac G4…some of my friends are very impressed with iMac G4 because it is a very minimalist machine…and we are talking about a design that is now over 10 years old! Anyways, I better stop talking about the G4 otherwise I won’t get to the point. I’ve been looking for this ScreenSaver for a long time now…you can find it in any iPad/tablet. In fact, I think some of the tablet users just use their tablets as clocks, as far as I see in some fabulous online photos. But if you have an office with a spare PowerPC machine hanging around, this will give you a cool reason to turn it ON and let it work for you again!
Briblo – 1.0.3 – (Free) – PowerPC – http://9031.com/goodies/ Also a Screen Saver but this is so funny, it’s a movable brick block that looks like Lego or Tetris. This would be considered a “Smart Screen Saver” because you can play with it by using the direction arrows on your keyboard. It’s very addictive, I even set up my Screen Saver to start on 3 minutes, when I’d usually opt for it to come on after 15 minutes – just so I can occasionally play with the bricks!
P.S.: Thanks Peter for sharing on comments these ScreenSavers are a show stoppers:
Has anyone ever heard about the iBookGuy? Well if not, I think all PowerPC users should visit his web-site – http://ibookguy.com, he has many tips about how to get the most out of your machine. He’s also got tips on how to disable a few tools that you probably won’t use very often, so that way you will have more free memory ram. When visiting this web-site, check out the “video production” he made. It’s a kind of reallity show/Podcast (A Week With a G4 – Are They Obsolete?) showing us how a G4 user can survive these days with an iBook G4, it’s very cool and totally worth spending some time to wacth all the videos. He also offers some services like fixing, selling parts, etc.
For more information, keep an eye on our blog as we are working hard to keep bringing you more and more options for your favorite PowerPC Mac.
