Hhmmm. I thought that Apple said that all updates for Tiger had stopped. Including security updates. Did I misunderstand that? And now there's a Safari update specifically for Tiger. Huh - what gives?
It always made sense to me that Apple would either provide its work (quite considerable) for the community to support, or arrange with Oracle. Steve Jobs and Larry Ellison are close friends, if the reports are accurate. It doesn't take much of a nudge from either end for things like this to be organized. p.s. the one thing that puzzles me is why it wasn't announced earlier, which would have avoided all the hand-wringing and gnashing of teeth.

CDMA vs. GSM is not the issue. It's Verizon's determination to control the phone experience vs. Apple's determination to control the phone experience. For a review of Verizon's experience, read this morning's Washington Post review I love this snippet ...
Prophecy is false. Steve B can't possibly last until 2015.
I think any Microsoft-related product whose name begins with "Kin" has an uphill battle. Let's ask Mr Tsunoda in January just how well his prediction held up. Should be interesting, but let's wait and see.
