We noted yesterday that the new Snow Leopard update breaks Rosetta and that a group of high-schoolers had released a third-party fix. Fortunately, the wizards of Cupertino have either corrected this problem themselves or used the third-party fix -- either way, the newest version of that update (Security Update 2012-001 v1.1) is now available on Apple's site or using the Software update function.

Snow Leopard was designed with better performance in mind, but Lion was designed to offer new and compelling features. We wondered if Lion could still offer speed increases despite its extra conveniences, so we pitted the two operating systems against each other in seven tests. Which performed better? Here are our results, side by side and in video form.
Mac OS X Lion may be on the horizon, but Apple just released another update for Snow Leopard users that prepares them for 10.7, specifically regarding enhancements to the Mac App Store.
Good news, Hackintoshers! If you followed our most recent guides to installing Snow Leopard on a PC from start to finish or the updated guide to building a Hackintosh with Snow Leopard, no hacking required, yesterday's OS X 10.6.3 update should go off without a hitch.
Savvy Mac users know you can get virtually any 3G USB dongle working by using the built-in dialler, but using the official software gets you more info like speeds and whether you're approaching download limits. Unfortunately, Vodafone's official Mac software is dead in the water when it comes to Snow Leopard. Fortunately, there's an easy fix.
While Snow Leopard doesn't seem to have broken too many Mac apps, when it does it seems to do so pretty spectacularly. If you've been trying to use the TiVo Transfer feature in Toast 10, here's the steps you need to follow to make it actually work.
If you followed our most recent guides to installing Snow Leopard on a PC from start to finish or the updated guide to building a Hackintosh with Snow Leopard, no hacking required, you'll be happy to know that I've tested my build with today's 10.6.2 update to Snow Leopard and it's working like a charm.
Apple today rolled out the 10.6.2 update to OS X Snow Leopard. This update fixes that nasty guest account bug we saw last month and in general tackles a whole host of bugs, stability issues and other various improvements.
With the Windows 7 release looming next week, tech site CNET decided that it'd be a good time to see how the two stack up against each other. It may seem unfair that the tests use a MacBook Pro booting Snow Leopard and Windows 7 in Boot Camp, but whether or not that mattered, the results are fairly balanced.
Yesterday we mentioned that a particularly nasty bug in Snow Leopard was deleting entire user accounts. The good news: Apple has acknowledged the bug, claimed that it only occurs in extremely rare cases, and assured users they're working on a fix. The bad news: Losing all of your user data—even if a bug is extremely rare—is a very big deal.
