  • Apple's legendary Clarus the dogcow returns in macOS Ventura

    Maybe some of the very… very… very old Macintosh users… —I bought my first Macintosh in October 1985— will remember that Clarus even had a ‘Technical Note’ —I do not remember if it was #10 oe #19— than then was removed from the list of Technical Notes —by that time, TN where the ‘holy grail’ to understand the system—.

    As for the disappearance… although it was around Steve Jobs coming back… I think that it was more related to the disappearance of the original Macintosh OS… when it began to be replaced by Mac OS X.

    (One thing that I never understood was the disappearance of ‘HyperCard’! Snif, snif…)

  • Jony Ive's exit from Apple caused by company culture changes and growing frustration

    Do we remember when some ‘high exec’ did not apologised by the Maps-gate? Tim Cook asked him to go out.
    With Johnny Ive he was more nice… after the initial ‘fashion Apple Watch’ fiasco.

    The only thing that we must remember is that… “Blaming Apple —and Tim Cook— brings book sales, NYT's page view…”

    Do you imagine an Apple Studio with a single port?

  • What it took for Apple to win Best Picture at the Oscars with 'CODA'

    Another ‘first’ for CODA that you did not mention is that it is the first movie that went to all cinemas with the ‘subtitles’ burned in!

    This is a movie about deaf people. Shouldn't they be able to right to ‘hear’ it everywhere?

  • Amazon's Comixology migration is a disaster - here's what you need to know

    Other that the app itself, a ‘normal’ update, all this is —essentially—a change at the server level… going for Comixology's accounts to Amazon's account.
    This should be as easy as… Download new app… Log in with your Comixology account and the your Amazon account… and —at the most— a notice: “Wait two days, please.”

  • Apple's Self Service Repair answers critics, doesn't help users

    As for ’tools’ I am almost sure that iFix can sell you anyone you need!

    There is no reason why Apple should ‘make mandatory’ that you buy them the tools. Well, maybe, the glue…
