Smarter Parental Controls

If you've been using the parental controls options in Mac OS X to lock your child out of using a particular computer late at night, but would like to employ a more clever technique to limit Internet access, turn to MAC address filtering on an Apple base station.

To do this, launch AirPort Utility, select your base station, and click Manual Setup. In the Access Control view, choose Time Access to turn on MAC filtering. You'll need to enter the MAC address of the particular computer, which (in 10.5 Leopard and 10.6 Snow Leopard) you can find in the Network System Preferences pane: click AirPort in the adapter list, and click Advanced. The AirPort ID is the MAC address.

As long as Apple persists in this type of thing, I will not encourage them by buying an iPhone or iPad. Following the same line of thought what happens if Apple tries to move this type of business to the Mac with their next OS? I, for one, will go back to windows, Win 7 seems to be competitive with OsX in many ways.
