Valve announced earlier that they were gonna release Half-Life series of games for Mac (1984 Apple ad Parody). Today is the day… as of the time of this post they aren’t showing in Steam on mac side yet but I was able to trigger the downloads via simple steam:/// urls.
No status on playability but the downloads are trigger-able.

Here are the links:
Half-Life – Install
Half-Life: Blue Shift – Install
Half-Life: Opposing Force – Install
Half-Life 2 – Install
Half-Life 2: Episode One – Install
Half-Life 2: Episode Two – Install
Update: Only seems to cover Half-Life 2 series
The mac version of Steam is finally out today months after it was first announced.
Portal is the first Valve game to be released as a free download until May 24th and a new set of games will be released on subsequent Wednesdays.
The first games will also enable users to get a glimpse of “Steam Play” which will let them buy a game once and play it on both platforms supported by Steam.
The only noticeable difference between the mac and the Windows client is the position of the window controls. Everything else is pretty much the same for both platform clients.

In preparation for the holidays, Apple did a refresh on almost all of their products that I honestly don’t know where to begin with this blog post. So I’ve decided to just give you guys a run down of what Santa Steve (yeah I know it’s lame. get over it.) and his Apple elves have in store for us sheeples.
Over the years the computer mouse has evolved… but for those who wern’t around in the 80’s they won’t know how far its evolved… I recently was given a used a Apple IIc that had the Mouse IIc with it. For the fun of it i did a comparison between the Mouse IIc and a Comfort Mouse Optical 3000
Here is the pic:
As you can see the Apple Mouse IIc is far more boxy compared to the Microsoft Comfort Mouse optical 3000
