But with the good comes the bad. With new possibilities come new frustrations and with new workflows come new bugs. So, how has it held up? How are we liking iOS 8 now, some three months later?

Run old-school console games on the Mac with OpenEmu

Run old-school console games on the Mac with OpenEmu

I'm 45, and I've been gaming on consoles since the Magnavox Odyssey. Many of the games I've played over the years represent a huge investment of time and a huge return of pleasure in playing, so I keep them. I keep them on shelves in my office, I keep them in bins in my basement. I don't get rid of them for the same reason I don't toss my old vinyl albums or CDs — in many cases, there's a real emotional attachment.

But this isn't about my hoarding tendencies. It's a good thing I've kept those old games around, because now I can play them again on my Mac. A powerful application provides the framework to do it easily, and it's absolutely free. It's called OpenEmu, and here's how to use it.
