If Microsoft is due any commendation it is that Word has such good language support. Go to the Tools/Select Language option and see how many variations there are to choose from! Not only do you get spelling localisations (Mac would tell me I spelled that incorrectly) but even grammar checking for foreign languages. It's about time Apple stopped being so US-centric. It's not that hard to bundle some foreign localisations or at least let us install our own custom word...
Yet it is in fact the Australian spelling. Australia uses the -ise ending almost exclusively. There is no Australian English option in Tiger which is pretty frustrating. Sounds like we'll miss out with Leopard too!
I feel like an expert! Don't forget about http://cocoadevcentral.com/
It gets even bigger in Leopard?? It's already too big in Tiger. Who needs a massive drop shadow anyway??
Can iPhone or iPod Touch sync the iTunes library wirelessly? That to me is the biggest missing feature if they can't. Sure Wi-Fi is not as fast as plugging it in, but most of the time when we sync, all it's doing is copying a few songs or play count information. Would be great to have it automatically sync as soon as it finds your home network.
Kate Bush's "The Man With the Child In His Eyes" is such a beautiful song, but I can't help thinking of how perverse the lyrics could be in a certain context.... "I realise he's there when I turn the light off and turn over"..."he's here again...the man with the child in his eyes"... "when I stay up late he's always waiting"...
well dah...
Ripping speed varies by CD but you should be able to get up to 20x from some new CDs if you're not doing anything else. iTunes can hang if it has trouble reading a CD...are they new or old CD you're ripping? If they're old and scratched, this may explain your slow ripping performance. If new, try trashing the iTunes preferences (spotlight "iTunes.plist" and see if that helps. It's rare but occasionally prerefence files can get corrupted.
