iScroll2 + Scroll Reverser for MacPowerPC

I found these great apps that it may help someone out there having the same issue that I was couple of weeks ago.

Some of my browsers were really out of date and I found out that TenFourFox seems to be the one to use as default.

Browsing in an iBook it’s not a easy task if you don’t have a mouse plugged in. My trackpad doesn’t have features like scrolling so I found an app that it does the job for me.

Second app is Scroll Reverser, well long short story it does reverse the scrolling.

Update for Mac PowerPC

Apple Update for Mac PowerPC (iTunes/AirPort Utility)

Picture it:  The Orchard, 2012…what’s going on here?  I know with Sophia Petrillo it sounds more funny, but you can not blame me for trying!  Anyways, I’m just posting here to make sure all the Leopard users get the 2 updates that Apple just released.  The first  one is for AirPort Utility 5.6.1, which allows us to configure and mange the new Airport Express with simultaneous dual band 802.11n.  For iTunes 🙂 10.6.3: You can check more details here: http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1426?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US   It seems this update brings compatibility with the new iOS6 and also it’s available for Leopard G4/G5.

I can not believe after all the years they finally released an update for Leopard (Intel only) a few weeks ago and now 2 updates for PowerPC!   This is a victory, don’t waste your time, go to  > Software Update and have some fun!

Apple:  Thank you for being our friend!

Update for Leopard Mac PowerPC

Update for Leopard Mac PowerPC

This afternoon when I was researching PowerPC compatible apps, I read a post about an update to Leopard on the site 9To5Mac that includes a flashback removal tool that Apple just released.  I honestly thought that by using my PowerPC, I would be safe from  viruses and trojans that surround the internet world.  Maybe we Mac users are not 100% safe, but I still don’t think we are the main focus of people trying to attack our computers.  Anyways, I digress:  download this update from the attached link: http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/42931/leopard-security-update-2012-003I was checking the comments and it seems that the PPC users are having some problems installing it.  Feedback is that it could be a mistake and the update may be for Intel only.  Anyways it’s worth a look…
