Question by justanasian27: Is the seagate freeagent desk for mac model also compatible with windows?
I received this seagate freeagent desk for mac external hard drive (model number: ST310005FJA105-RK). I am planning to return it. I am wondering if it is also compatible with windows? The box says it is for mac and lists only the Mac OS software requirements, but I was wondering if it could also be used with Windows PCs? Please help. Thanks.
Answer by SilverTonguedDevil Sure. There is no such thing as a Mac hard drive. Any hard drive can be formatted for the file system of any computer. The triple interface design of the case makes it particularly good for use with a Mac, since very few PCs have Firewire 800 (IEEE-1394b) connection. That’s the only reason “Mac” is in the name.
Question by EMAH: I need a framework in windows XP for programming iphone and ipod applications ?
Exists some programming enviroment in windows XP (no MAC) for building ipod and iphone application ? I need some links about this, tutorials, ebooks. Help me please.
Answer by WaMSie Apple is a hardware manufacturer, they want you to buy their hardware. In order to write native iOS applications you really need a Mac. There are probably illegal ways of installing MacOS on a normal PC.
The only real and legal option for developing iPhone applications on an XP box is to develop mobile web applications for it.
Question by Uber Loser: How do I connect my mac book, which has windows xp on it, to the internet wireless?
I just did the boot camp thing, and the Windows XP side of the Mac book won’t connect to the internet! I have a wireless router, and the Mac side of my Mac book gets internet perfectly fine. Please give me step-by-step instructions of how to get my Windows XP onto the internet. Thanks for your time.
Answer by Ben Your OS X install DVD has drivers on it for all the components, such as the graphics card, wi-fi card, bluetooth, and iSight camera. Just put the disk in and the Boot Camp drivers should install.

Question by cyrus: What is the best programming software for making windows applications and iphone apps?
Ive heard of tons of programming softwares but i just want a simple one to start with where i can make basic applications, mobile and iphone apps and design basic models, im only 15 and porbably wont take programming as a carrer, but i do want to learn. I am only a begginer, so a software with loads of tutorials on the internet will be good.
Answer by mathematix For iPhone programming, you need a mac. If you have a mac, head over to http://developer.apple.com and download “XCode.” It is a software development kit (SDK). To learn the language, apple has documentation all over the website; read those and check out the sample code. This can be very hard for some people. Just make sure you follow the basic programming tutorial stuff, and then use internet forums, etc., to ask questions whose answers will better you at iPhone programming.
Question by Whitellama: Is it possible to use the iPhone SDK on a Windows?
I was wondering if it is possible to use the iPhone SDK (the program used to create apps), on a windows computer.
I will NOT take “maybe” as an answer. You just want to get points for answering!
Answer by maniacdev Nope.
There are some hacks to get apps compiled in windows onto a jailbroken phone, but I’m assuming that you are talking about the official iPhone SDK so that you can get an app in the app store, and for that you will unfortunately need a mac.
There’s a couple of cool tools for developing games that you can eventually copy to a mac and put on the iPhone, I talked about them on my blog here:
So you can use those to develop, then later using a mac, test on the iPhone and send to the app store.
