GameTap Mac client delayed, possibly until next Thursday

Some of the Mac users out there may have noticed that yesterday came and went with little fanfare. What should we have been celebrating with screenshot tours and impressions?

360's Guitar Hero II axe working in OS X, Frets on Fire

Though we managed to get Guitar Hero II's USB-enabled X-plorer controller working with Windows XP, we couldn't manage to get it rocking with Mac OS X.
