Access NTFS (Windows) Disk from OSX using MacFuse

I know, its nothing new, however not many people know about it. Personally I don’t have that many NTFS external drives, mostly because I knew it would cause issues with Mac and Linux/Unix. So instead I use to format most of my external drives as Fat32. However I would have to make  a couple of partitions manually because Windows 2000/XP actually limited you from creating partitions large than 32/64GB. You can get the specifics because this covers more than this article at WikiPedia:

Don’t worry about Fat32, partition your drives as NTFS and make them as large as you want. You can now using them on Mac OSX using MacFuse and NTFS-3g from Tuxera.

Macfuse –  http://code.google.com/p/macfuse/
NTFS-3G from Tuxera – http://macntfs-3g.blogspot.com/

Install both and enjoy!

Creators Of Mobile Chat For the iPhone Twenty08 Hires AplloIM Developer

If you bought the iPhone when it first came out, you had two choices for Instant Messaging. Twenty08's MobileChat and Alex Schaefer's ApolloIM. Twenty08 has now hired Alex Schaefer to work exclusively on MobileChat
twenty08 would like to formally welcome aboard…Alex Schaefer. Many of you may know him as the founder of the world’s first Native iPhone IM Application, ApolloIM. ApolloIM was an amazing application and during it’s run, MobileChat and Apollo stood head to head and constantly battled to create the better app. (Friendly war of course!) The best part about it was that no one won! Only our respective users benefited from the friendly competition, and you can’t ask for anything better than that as far as I’m concerned. Now with Alex working on our side, we believe that MobileChat will be able to rise up and regain its glory as the number one iPhone application that we all know it can be. He is a very talented developer (plus a great guy) who has already brought some great ideas to the table and we’re all very excited to see our new-found relationship grow.
