Hmm, just found that Jobs was offered the possibility, but turned it down: http://news.teamxbox.com/xbox/8504/S...ell-Processor/
Apple's move to the Intel processor is said to be because they weren't getting what they were looking for, especially for their portables. This sounds a reasonable explanation. Now I see the Playstation 3 with and 8 core "Cell Processor". This thing looks perfect for an XServe machine that would be used in a cluster, or even by itself, offering top of the line performance. This got me wondering whether Apple would attempt to use Intel based CPUs for most of the line and...
First off one thing that the move to Intel will probably mean is more access to PC add-on hardware, such as graphics cards, without needing a Mac specific version - this can only be good. Back to the subject of this thread: What of the Firmware? I have heard mentioned that Apple probably won't be using OpenFirmware in its new Intel based machines. At the same time I doubt that they will want to be using the BIOS either. My view point in this is that they are not trying...
Now that Apple has brought out the digital camera adapter, I am certainly considering buying a 60GB iPod. For me the larger iPod allows me either non-lossy compressed music, or large capacity photo storage when I go on vacation, or photo shoots. If your camera is only 3.5MP then that extra room means nothing, but if you are dealing with a camera that is 6MP and up, then it starts to add up. Lowering the price by $20 or providing a special discount on the camera adapter...
I have looked at the CAD software that I know about (AutoCAD, CATIA and Rhinoceros) and none of them are available for the Mac. Does anyone know of any CAD software that works with MacOS X? I am hoping for more than a Classic or X11 application. Also, I would be interested to know if any of the 3D pointing devices, such as the ones from ttp://www.3dconnexion.com/ are able to work with the Mac.
For me what's missing from the iPod photo is a bundled adaptor for transferring photos from you camera straight to the iPod. Granted Apple wants the Mac to be the hub, but when moving around you don't always have a computer at your disposal.
How about AM/FM radio? Europe and elsewhere in the world there are still plenty of people who listen to analogue radio. There are still plenty of people who use the radio to listen to the football (soccer in the USA) matches. Sure there is a very slow move to digital radio, but terrestial radio is still here.
Sounds good. Although you could consider this as costing Apple nothing when compared to the salaries being made, it is always nice to get a freebie, especially when it is more than a simple desk ornament, that simply serves as static advertising. With this freebie you don't feel like you are just getting the what's left of the marketing department's budget One thing that hit me is that when you compare the price of the iPod shuffle to USB memory sticks, it is great...
Well I suppose a five star rating with that disclaimer is fine. After all I don't think any company would list their product as "1 star, because we prefer the competitions's offerings".
The exact is text is: "QuickTime and TIFF (LZW) decompressor are needed to see this picture" As indicated in the referred thread it is not the lack of Quicktime that is the issue, since the systems tested had a full install of Quicktime. Office documents uses embeded data types and basically use what is put in them and it uses OLE to handle those embeds. Quicktime on the Windows side either does not provide an OLE container or fails to support compressed PICTs. I...
