Apple Being the brains behind Microsoft has made Bill Gates the wealthiest guy in the world. So he can pretty much afford to buy his kids any gadgets they want. However, Apple devices are banned in the Gates’ house. This is surprisingly not a rule set by Bill Gates. Melinda Gates has made it very clear in an interview with The New York Times that she does not allow Apple hardware in the house. If the kids want an iPod they’ll have to settle for a Zune instead.

Hello Steam? There are a LOT of games for Mac, more than what you think and Steam is only making it better.

As out-of-topic as it is, Steam is indeed just plain awesome ;) The little I have tried it on a Mac when I had one it worked just as peachy as on Windows, and it really makes it a breeze to find games. I only wish there was Steam for Linux, too.

Yeah. I don't really know why there isn't one, though. Sure, none of the major blockbusters are available for Linux, but there's literally thousands of great indie games available on Steam and most of those have Linux versions available. Thus, Valve would already have several thousand games right there waiting if they'd just port Steam over, and once Steam was there the bigger players might also start to show more interest.

My favorite is still the Penumbra-series, especially the newest Amnesia.
