OS X on the HP TouchSmart tx2z

After only mild success with installing OS X on the TouchSmat IQ507 I’ve set my sights on yet another HP touch screen computer. This time the target is the TouchSmart tx2z tablet PC, which actually uses a true capacitive touch screen, instead of the IR based one in the TouchSmart IQ507.

Minor details aside, the tx2z should be arriving later this afternoon. I’ll post any progress I make.

E*Trade Bringing Mobile Pro App to the iPhone?

E*Trade has long supported Blackberry users, with their Mobile Pro application, and sometime (hopefully) this year they’ll be adding iPhone support as well. After all E*Trade is seriously behind the times in supporting the iPhone, even Bank of America and Citi have apps already.

Now take this with a grain of salt, as it is pure speculation on my part, all I am basing this off of is a message I received from E*Trade in response to my inquires about an iPhone app.

“Thank you for your message regarding E*TRADE Mobile PRO… … We are currently developing a platform for iPhone users; however, a release date has not yet been established. We are constantly updating our website and adding features based on the feedback we receive from customers. …”

Hopefully the app will not only make it to market, but also include access to banking features, like Quick Transfer and Bill Pay.
