Konqueror for OS X
Benjamin Reed has compiled Konqueror for Mac OS X, after recently porting the KUniqueApplication class. "Considering Konqueror is a fairly complex application, it looks like we're hitting a point where apps will start getting easier to build." Currently, Konqueror binaries are not available for download, and "probably won't be for a bit until things get cleaned up more." According to Reed's blog, "next up is KOffice."
Blink II OS X support
Methodshop observes that the popular Blink II digital camera is not compatible with Mac OS X, unlike the majority of cameras that allow OS X users to "plug-n-play." SiPix, maker of the Blink II, has been contacted by Mac users, but has said it doesn't believe there is a market. Methodshop is encouraging Mac users to "prove them wrong" and express an interest in software for the camera. "All they need to do is write a few lines of code so iPhoto will recognize their products."
