Think about that a little bit. How about the civil rights protestors of the 1950s? How about the suffragettes protesting for a woman's right to vote? How about the worker rallies of the early 1900s? Just to name a few. If you have a 40 hour work week (and get paid overtime for more than 40 hours), then the worker protests helped you out. (While we're at it, how about the Boston Tea Party?) Obviously, this protest against Apple is ridiculous. But throughout history, there...
"In a symbolic gesture, the Free Software Foundation plans a new campaign, nicknamed the Apple Challenge, that it thinks will pressure Apple into opening its software code." Yeah, and I think the moon is made of green cheese.
Let's hope the designers are really intelligent.
It's the secret features of Tiger released at last! No, no, it's the G5 Powerbook! No, no, it's the... So mysterious - a "new product" that will shut out rivals. The only products Apple sells that can shut out rivals are iPods, and there already are no real rivals, and not likely to be any in the future. The iPod Touch is of course due for a price reduction. The Apple TV? I don't see how anything regarding the Apple TV could shut out rivals, since the market is so...

Nice pick-up. I totally agree - any device that uses such an ugly typeface is in trouble. I guess it's meant to distinguish the 'consumer-oriented' Thunder from their business-oriented phones, but it's an awfully ugly typeface (I deleted it off all my computers). I've never gotten the "let's design something that looks like a third-grader drew it" kind of thinking.
Zero comments? I guess nobody cares about the iPhone after all...
Except that they pretty soon had a major shortage of phones last year - at one point only 2 stores in the entire U.S. had them in stock. It took a month or two to fully supply every store. How soon we forget.
10.5.1 and/or 10.5.2 ( I don't remember which) had several UI changes - particularly regarding the dock (hierarchical menus) and the translucent menu bar.
As I recall, the charges were dismissed because the original suit did not make the case that the stock price did in fact go down because of the backdating allegations. The judge dismissed the case, but said it could be refiled with new supporting evidence (the judge said the stock actually went up a lot in the months after the allegations). So it looks like these lawyers are attempting to only look at the first two weeks after the charges, when the stock went down. I...
