The system requirements for Geekbench 3 appear to be 10.7.5 or greater, not 10.5.8 or greater as listed by MacUpdate.

Prior to updating to 0.7.60 I was using 0.7.58. I'm sticking with 0.7.58. 0.7.60 added a "easy view" as the default view. I prefer the "tree view" which is the default in 0.7.58.

It's ok to add various views but IMO it should remember the user's choice and use that the next time the app is used. I don't want to have to change it every time.

Another warning about this app. It checks for two or more copies of itself and if there are *resets* your Launch Services.

So if you already made the mistake of keeping a previous version and attempt to execute a newer version before erasing the older version your current Launch Services settings are toast and revert to their initial defaults.

1.1.1 appears to have corrected the complaint I had for 1.1.0 (i.e., editing hex bytes) so I am posting this as a separate review to somewhat"neutralize" my previous low rating with a higher one.

I would be nice if the hex and text search boxes were longer and on separate lines or toggled (like old Resorcerer) and also had a equally long replace (optionally "all") box (also like Resorcerer).

1.1.0 is useless as a hex editor. For example in earlier versions (I have 1.0.10) I could, say, select a byte in the hex display and copy/paste "12" from a text file into the hex display. This latest version ends up clobbering two bytes with the ASCII value of the byte I want to change, i.e., 0x3132. This makes it impossible to write down a desired hex sequence and copy/paste into the hex display. As I said 1.0.10 did it the expected way. So I recommend sticking to that version.

New versions are useless since they no longer support Snow Leopard.

Previous versions are fine. There are still many 10.6.x users who do not or will not switch to dumbed down Lion so why cut them off from future enhancements? Is there some specific implementation reason that new releases need some Lion feature? Then fine. I'll accept that. Otherwise I see no reason for the limitation.

I give up. I cannot get KisMAC to do anything a 2010 Mac Pro using 10.6.5. It doesn't matter which driver I select the scan button is unresponsive. FWIW the Channel menu is always disabled. My Airport is enabled and shows there's at least 4 to 5 other wireless devices in the immediate area. I would expect the KisMAC's scan to show the same. Maybe I'm using this program wrong and maybe not. If not then this GUI needs a lot to be desired.

Ok, ticket created. Log included with the ticket.

Is 2.0.0 supposed to be an improvement? With 1.1.12 I had full screen mode enabled by default to go on to my TV. I could double click a video, launch vlc and the video would start playing on my TV. With 2.0, if I double click a video it comes up in the mal vlc window and doesn't switch to the TV until I explictly click to go to full screen size. Further I can't have the controller default to my primary screen.

Also crashed 2.0 at least once.

I'm sticking with 1.1.12.

Is KissMAC (0.3.2) supposed to be able to fully work on a mid 2010 Mac Pro with 10.6.5? The mac pro has built-in Airport version "Broadcom BCM43xx 1.0 (". Each time I start a scan I get a dialog saying "Could not connect to the Kismet server - KisMac could not connect to the Kismet server at port 2501. Check the IP address and port." The scan does show some of the networks however. I just want to know how to avoid the dialog.
