  • I'm waiting for Aperture 3, expecting that it's been delayed because it requires Snow Leopard. What other apps will become Snow Leopard only?
  • Well I'm itching for an Aperture upgrade. I haven't been in AI for a while, but I came here hoping for some whispers about A3. In the absence of any sources, I'll predict that A3 will have a lot more tools for PS-style manipulation. Some of …
  • I find that Genius is very slow to process its results also (I'm on a MacBook Pro). Does anyone know why this is? My best guess is that it relates to the size of your music library -- mine is very large, so I suppose that Apple is sending a lot …

  • I'm not the first person to say this, but we really ought to think about the iPod & iPhone as the basis for a new platform for consumer electronics. What are the different elements we've got here? -- telephone -- Flash memory -- Bluetoot…
  • I'd say that a widescreen/touchscreen iPod is pretty much a given. Put it another way, it's unthinkable that Apple would persist with the existing iPod form factor now that the iPhone is out. In more detail: 100GB HD no camera no GPS hopefully W…
  • Perhaps I'm stating the obvious, but there's a widespread belief that Apple won't announce a new video iPod until the iPhone has been released. A lot of people (OK, me and a couple of other people in various fora) are hoping for something like a…

  • This is timely -- I've just bought a new turntable w/ pre-amp to start digitising my vinyl collection. And I've known about Audacity for a while -- a friend who's an open-source fan recommended it. That said, I'm pretty clueless about audio work,…
  • For what it's worth -- not much I suspect -- we seem to have confirmation that IBM was working on a G5 powerbook: see eweek's "We have the right watts" article which quotes an IBM VP as saying Quote: They had Freescale primarily for the l…
  • I'd really like to see a little WiFi finder meter on the side of the case (presumably just a strip of LEDs) that can run while the case is closed. That way I can find a hotspot without having to open up my PB....
  • As a sadder (if not wiser) Framemaker user I can't help but view Pages through a Frame-centric prism. We know that Apple produces a lot of its documentation using Framemaker ... wouldn't it be nice if Pages could fill those particular shoes? You ca…

  • I think it will be a huge hit. This is the first desktop that I've really wanted -- as opposed to merely admired -- since I bought my Ti Powerbook. If I had a trading account, I'd be buying Apple shares right this minute....
