Interesting how they say that 10.4.9 will be "one of the last". I don't really expect any updates after that. Never been one, even if technically it's possible to increment the numbers. I'm looking forward to a brief stint with 10.4.9, and then a swift transition to Leopard... oh, the excitement! I think I'll toss in a MacBook Pro with my Leopard order.... or, wait a sec.... So what's this about Windows Support in Leopard? AppleInsider said that with a great deal of...
Anyone that is concerned about Apple losing interest in the Macintosh... that will never happen. 1) Macs will be a platform upon which iPhone widgets are created. 2) Macs will be used to produce podcasts for iTV content. 3) Macs will be used to record music using Garage Band. 4) Macs will be used to organize photos in iPhoto that are served up to iTV. I think you get the idea... Macs aren't going anywhere, they are a vital component of the full solution... content...
Since when was iTV scheduled to launch in 2006? Steve said it was due in the first quarter of 2007. Appears on-track to me.
Glad to see Apple's position on this. The League fails to realize that the directory built into iTunes is only one place that people get the feeds from. The affiliation program allows direct linking to any page on iTunes, therefore the League could've been promoting their own stuff however they wanted. Third parties would've been doing the same for them.
Not major, but definitely an issue to be resolved for the overall reputation of the OS.
Seems like something else is being rushed out the door, like this article. I think I just "generation" a funny! Nonetheless, thanks for your hard work Kasper. I hope they pull out. I like Apple's closed system. Then again, if they did work towards interoperability, the digital music market would get very interesting indeed. I can see a major growth in iTunes Music Store usage, rather than iPod users switching to other stores or buying other players.
The world sure has changed. Some people are so quick to pass judgement and point out the mistakes of others. OS X is a very complex combination of files, and a mistake like this is bound to happen once in a blue moon. The important thing is that they noticed it and corrected it right away. That's what matters here, grouchos.
The "struggles" continue. They used it correctly. This whole issue of marketshare is pointless. Apple is a healthy, profitable company. And they are growing. That's all that matters.
That's great, but I'm starting to agree with the whiners about the low bitrate songs. Let's see Apple step up and offer higher encoding rates. Why do I say this? In the beginning, they claimed that "some" of the music in the first million songs was encoded from the original masters, but I *highly* doubt they were able to continue doing that as they added millions of more songs over the past three years. Apple is working extremely hard to achieve the success they are...
That breaks my heart, and is a complete surprise! I never would've guessed they would use a Windows-based device.
