From the article: "Microsoft has similarly shifted attention away from its own core competency in developing software platforms." I seriously question the assertion that Microsoft has competency in developing software platforms. That's what they do, yes, but that doesn't mean they're good at it.
It seems ALL of the people who own or will soon own a Zune HD have come to visit.
The Mac share of the stock price might fall but the actual dollar number should not. Unless he is actually expecting revenue and profits from the Mac business to fall. I highly doubt that proposition. Does the term 'analyst' refer to where they pull their numbers from?
I think it's a mistake to start pitching iPod Touch as a gaming machine. It's certainly waaay more than that. Why intentionally limit the market scope of your product? I hope it's really just spin to paper over the technical issues they had with putting a camera in the Touch.

From LowEndMac: "...at present the 2008 and 2009 Xserves are the only Mac that will automatically boot into 64-bit mode. All other Macs with a Core 2 Duo or better CPU are capable of 64-bit operation but won't use it unless you hold down the "6" and "4" keys during startup." From MacWorld.com: "If youÂ’re running a Mac powered by an Intel Core 2 Duo processor or an Intel Xeon processor, your Mac is 64-bit capable. And Snow Leopard runs 64-bit-capable applications in...
Still working on issues surrounding irrational fears of castration, I see.
Uh, oh. It only fixes the 'infrequent noises'. The frequent ones are staying. :-)
