[quote]Originally posted by TMA: I live in the Midlands area (Nottingham, Birmingham and Leicester are easily accessable via the train) and i'm wondering if there is anywhere I can go to see Steve Jobs Keynote. Do the Applecentres here ever show it? or PC World? (I doubt it but hey) I remember i went to see the last keynote in the Orange sponsored studios in Birmingham organised by macassist (http://www.macassist.co.uk) but there's no mention of it happening...
[quote]Originally posted by Xool: I am a developer and have used most major development environments, including: CodeWarrior, ProjectBuilder, and Real Basic. I like CodeWarrior when I was using 9, but once I switched to X I tried to keep up with ProjectBuilder. My Cocoa experience is limited, but with Carbon (specifically OpenGL) ProjectBuilder was great. In fact I migrated my projects from CW to PB and don't regret it one bit. Now about Real Basic. Its a...
Thanks you all for your suggestions. It helps getting your advice to start out on the right foot. I will use PB, IB and lean towards Cocoa.
[quote]Originally posted by Jonathan: I agree with Gorgonzola.. you replied before i edited my post to correct my errors. The fault probably rests about 90% in developer's hands, 10% in Apple's. 10% being the minor inconstencies in APIs and the utter lack of documentation. It's also the fact that the apps are coming from so many different sources: you've got classic mac os developers, old next-steppers, now apple-scripters, unix ports, and also people writing...
[ Did you guys knew New York was previously named Nieuw Amsterdam, don't you know that a lot of areas are named after dutch cities like Harlem, dutch city Haarlem etc etc... Interestlingly enough, did you know that the Dutch sold/traded new york(new amsterdam) to the british in early 1600's. Want to know what the Dutch traded NY for? a tiny little island not far off from East Timor. It had nutmeg which was a popular spice for the Dutch East Indies company which was at...
Hey, I am an American expat living in London. Here is the basic attitude, which really shined after the Sept 11th attack. General attitude was:: 1. It was terrible act BUT you Americans deserved it because of your policies (Some Italians in the pub actually stood up and "high fived" after one of the buildings collapsed). There is always the qualified BUT here. 2. They, Europeans and liberal Brits, do not like US Government. In fact, it is always popular here to go...
[quote]Originally posted by Bogie: And does anyone know why Apple stock dropped 50% in one day? Because they posted lower than expected earnings, not a loss, they still made a profit, Compaq and HP and Intel both declared losses that quarter and their stock did not drop 50%. Hence my claims about short term investors lowering stock prices.
For it to drop this suddenly, within a couple of hours, suggests that a large institutional...
Q. I am looking forward to developing some simple OS X applications, the kind where one person can do. I am a technologist that is very rusty at programming. The question: If you were going to develop new applications for OS X only, would you choose: a). Apple OS X Interface Builder, Project Builder, AppleScript Studio (and Java/Objective C) (Cocoa) OR b) REALBasic 3.5, a drag&drop cross platform RAD tool that creates windoz, carbon apps for classic and OS X...
[quote]Originally posted by amidala: Ok, I haven't seen it, but it comes out today. If anyone knows of the rumor that Kate (Meg Ryan) talks about the G5 in the movie, let us know, ok? Ok. Good. Merry Christmas. Happy New Year. Love Andrew [ 12-28-2001: Message edited by: amidala ]
Yes, Andrew, this is true fact. I spoke with Steve Jobs who is a good buddy of mine and he said that although he hated the shit outta the movie he lent...
[quote]Originally posted by Bogie: Fact is the stock market always improves on the long run, hence why short term investing is bad. I invested when it was in the mid $50s fact is I am in it for the long haul and so I am not too concerned about the $20 prices now. However, I am bitter against those who do short term investing because the reason that Apple is so low is not due to them not having the goods, its due to what I think of as consumer investors jumping at...
