The PowerBook 12" is still the most portable Mac that runs the current Mac OS X in useable shape. It weighs 2.1 kg, and it's relatively small. But to throw a 2+ kg device in your bag you gotta be pretty motivated. At 1 kg it would sure slip down into my bag much more often. But at 0,5 kg we'd be totally rocking! And that's why I think Apple will try to drive a fullblown "iPhone" OSX into a completely new device. They will be trying to forego the subnotebook and tablet...
This is good. I like the sound of Android. It would also be cool to see an example of the project in action.. What's up with that?
The benchmarks look fantastic!
If it's extremely sturdy that's great. But I've heard more people having problems with MacBooks than with PowerBook G4 12". And the MacBook isn't compact. I'll wait a little longer. But it's good to know that it's sturdy though.
Yee, this is great! But... when is a compact and sturdy macbook coming? I refuse to buy a plastic notebook with a glass screen... feel like it's gonna break.
I don't think it's just a matter of personal taste. I think more importantly it's a matter of functionality. The new icons in the home folder are horrible when it comes to recognition. If you squint with your eyes just slightly they look identical to each other. There is no contrasting details that show us what they are for. Just a diffuse shadow figure on the folder icon. This way we must read the text, and can't navigate by image recognition. The folder icon design...
He tells us nothing with Leopard could be considered a major breakthrough, and at the same he tells us that the transparrent menu and the flat icons are annoying. It's such a strange approach... I think most of what's great with Leopard is probably not graphically visible at all, but is a real breakthrough for developers. The dev tools seems really like they've went through a breakthrough revamp. And much of what's going on under the hood. And what about graphics drivers,...
Well... perhaps it came out wrong... I totally agree it was unacceptable of the employees, that's not the issue here. We agree on that. But I mean that in a leader position you should take in account that there are probably a significant percentage of "weak" people in your company, and create a robust system from the start. It was easy to prevent this. A good model should help weak people do the right thing, not tempt them to be bad and then punish them. If Apple cares...
I agree it's totally lame of the employees leeching like this. BUT a system with glitches will be exploited, and I think it's the instance responsible for creating the system that has to take the full responsibility for what happens. They should have been aware of this prior to pulling it off, and in advance have sent out an e-mail to its employees warning them that Apple didn't have the authority to track down individuals to do this refund, but would appreciate if Apple's...
With the iPhone Apple is really stretching it... I'm sure they'll try stretch it as far as it goes in terms of revenue. But in the end they must draw a line between what will benefit Apple in terms of control and revenue and what's hurting the brand and reputation...
