I'm not sure I'd say that Apple acquired NeXT's IP and talent. More like Apple paid NeXT to take them over. Look at how many senior Apple employees were given the boot and replaced by their NeXT counterparts. Perhaps the most brilliant tech deal ever.
Comments like this crack me up. Apple is even worse than Bill Gates when they have no competition? How can you even say this? It makes absolutely no sense. Competition is good, sure. But enough of this free marketeer b.s. about how without competition, everything turns to garbage. Repeat the mantra all you want, but that doesn't make it true. I don't think Jobs cares one bit about his competition. He's always led the pack, whether he was financially successful...
Yeah, but Apple doesn't whine and cry like Google. They'd rather build great products and lead the pack than be another crybaby copycat. Google is for people with no taste, who do not appreciate design as art, who just want it (whatever it is) cheap/free. I've stopped using them. No more Google search. No Google apps. I don't like them as a company. Not that any company is without fault, but Google is especially slimy. Personally, I think this was one dumb move for...
Me too. I always wondered why 3DKit was abandoned.
Tricked??? Are you high? Apple pretty much saved the music industry from its own ignorance, greed and shortsightedness. The TV/film industry is just alienating more and more viewers at this point by making it hard to get content. Sorry guys, but 99% of your content is crap and many of us refuse to pay $100/month for content we don't want. I disconnected cable two years ago and haven't missed it. And if the studio bozos won't put it on Hulu or iTunes, I'm fine with...
Give me a break. No one has been insensitive. Stating the obvious isn't being insensitive. He was obese. That's obvious from photos. No doubt a great guy who will be hugely missed, but we shouldn't be afraid to address the WHY. Americans have become so incredibly fearful. We're afraid to talk about anything serious lest we offend. If Olivier's passing and subsequent discussion of why a 41 year old drops dead leads others to change their ways and live healthier lives,...
I saw one of these banners this morning and, honestly, it just makes no sense. There's nothing clever or captivating about the campaign. It's just rather bizarre and nonsensical. I can see why Microsoft wants to take a jab at Apple pricing, but I don't feel these ads accomplished their goal in the least. Just weird. You'd think by now that Microsoft might try a different ad agency or a completely different approach, but they clearly lack the vision. Shocker.
I recently purchased a new Mac Mini to replace my Apple TV. Since I won't be using iLife on the Mini (just Front Row, plus Plex and maybe a few other media center apps), I'd like to install iLife09 on my MacBook Pro. Unfortunately, the DVD does not allow for installation on another computer. Does anyone know how to install iLife09 using another machine's restore DVD? I've tried copying the apps, but that doesn't work. I've also tried extracting the installers...
Generally speaking, I find FileMaker upgrades to be a total rip-off, save the jump to version 7. They introduce a few nice new features, then charge more than 50% to upgrade. Improvements are modest at best, yet users pay again and again and again. This time around, however, I think FileMaker has delivered a very worthwhile upgrade. Script Triggers are almost worth buying the program again at full price. I've spent so much time writing scripted data entry solutions...
My guess is that the poster - and others - want to CUT and PASTE a file, ie: move it.
