    can some one help me: i have a PowerBook G4, and i know what the codes mean, but i don`t know where to type them in. i could do it on a PC (i think), but i use the Mac much (with a lot of emphisis on much) more. i`m just learning about hacking, and i haven`t done anything with macs yet. i really don`t know a whole lot, and i don`t understand a lot of the termenology used. so if someone can dumb it down for me and explain it in small easy to understand words i would really be greatful. it looks sooooo cool.

    Of course no one notices the fact he presses a certain key on his keyboard before he hits the screen. I`m not sure what key it is but it looks like it may be S or W.

    This is freaking cool.:) I think only the newest Powerbooks can do this. They have sensord that detect motion so they can save the hard drive in case the unit is dropped.

    he used a different computer, you have a powerbook, he has a macbook pro with intel processors, note what he says in the beginning

    Step By Step Instructions for Mac Book Pro (I don`t have a PPC to test, sorry)

    ppc is short for power pc, you have laptop with a power pc processor, and the instructions he has are for an intel based laptop, ie the macbook pro.

    It`d be better if it could switch between full screen games, because some games crash if you use alt tab... Or maybe it does work! I don`t know. WHATEVER! XD

    Looks amazing, but I think it might just be a fake - when he presses a button it could just be a delay until the screen switches. If it`s not, though, I LOVE IT!!!!
