I think Apple tried to compete in the Java Enterprise, but I don't think they ever made much headway. I would guess that the vast majority of people who deployed WOAs deployed them on Apple servers. If that is the case Apple might as well use their best tech. Part of the appeal of .Net is how you can use one language and framework to write desktop and web apps.I'd just love to have some way of accessin databases from within Cocoa. EOs was too cool, and I hope they have...
My hope is that Apple is letting WebObjects ride off into the sunset to be replaced by additions to Cocoa. WebObjects was cool, but porting it to Java never paid off the way Apple had hoped. It appears that Apple was using Java as a fall back plan on Objective-C. However with the end of Cocoa Java, and now WebObjects being put out to pasture, it seems Apple is firmly commited to Objective-C as its application development language. Also, Objective-C 2.0 shows that Apple...
I'm guessing we won't see a new finder in Leopard. Why would they waste the time to add grid spacing to icons in the current finder if it was going to be replaced with something else? I may be wrong about this, but sadly I'm not expecting much to happen in finder land.
Excellent! Good to see the options are there.
Kickaha is correct that Time Machine uses hard links, but instead of rsync it uses the same filesystem notification mechanism spotlight uses to flag files as changed. The upside is that like spotlight your system will easily know which files have been changed without having to search the whole drive. The downside is that everytime a file is changed it will have to be copied in its entirety to the backup. For small files this is no biggie, but for larger files it kinda...
Storing recipes in Address book would be kind of a weird combo. Call Jeff and bake him a really great apple fritter at the same time! Seriously if you want something as simple as address book for recipes, you could probably put one together in an evening. In addition, with CoreData, Cocoa Bindings, and Interface Builder you might even be able to do it without having to write a single line of code.
Well seeing as how the name is BOOTcamp, I'm pretty sure that booting into windows will be required.
Right, the lead browswer engineer that works on this stuff daily has less understanding of browser measurements and how they work than a guy who once worked in publishing. Absolute measurements work great when the dpi stays the same. Unfortunately they don't, and Hyatt address this by stating they assume 96 dpi when making browsers. Assuming 96 dpi when it is actually 72 or 120 throws you nice cm is a cm right out the window. Now with Resolution Independence and your...
For the web FreeState is right that a pixel is resolution independent. You can read from Dave Hyatt where he explains that css pixels do not equal device pixels. Kind of confusing but that's the W3C for you. http://webkit.opendarwin.org/blog/ (read the part about CSS units part way down)
Incorrect. PDF can contain vector and raster images. Here is an article on PDF that describes how it can contain both vector and raster images. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pdf
