Ted Turner for president! 504 Views / 7 Replies  
Did anyone see Ted Turner on David Letterman last night? Okay, he's kind of weird. He sort of closes his eyes when talking about anything deep. He saws "AWWW" alot. But, he could be just the...

No, they wouldn't. Have you ever heard of Apple taking issue with another company for something Apple did not invent? Creative didn't deserve this patent, and it knows it. If it did, it would have...

I had the same question, with this patent, and with Microsoft's. Is it even possible the idiots at the patent office are unaware of the iPod, and how long its been around. Frankly, the whole idea...

Hey Rob, I am not a programmer, and can't profess to know the details, but it sounds like the MacTels will be able to run Windows at nearly native speed. If true, I wonder if games on a MacTel...

Poll: Didn't need it, but glad I have it. 1,227 Views / 24 Replies  
Jaguar and Panther felt like must have upgrades. Surprisingly, despite what others have said about Tiger, this is THE upgrade I didn't really think I needed, and now that I have it, know I didn't...

iTMS won't accept my plastic! 2,582 Views / 106 Replies  
I have purchased about 500 hundred songs from iTunes. But, no more, for now anyway. Ever since upgrading to iTunes 4.x (I can't remember when it started exactly), iTMS won't accept any of my...

How long have you already had your PowerMac? 2,098 Views / 69 Replies  
I don't remember exactly when Apple stopped shipping dual 1.8 Gig PowerMacs, but it seems to me it was last year some time, which would mean you've already had it for quite a while (I've had mine for...

Sony calls FireWire iLink 802 Views / 13 Replies  
You should be able to check the specs at Sony's website. Look for "iLink." I think that's what Sony calls FireWire.

Ditch Canon, go with Sony! 802 Views / 13 Replies  
I had Canon ZR (I think the model number was ZR45) for exactly one day, before returning it and buying a Sony. I've never regretted my decision. My decision was not about the noise, though, it was...

...there are holes in the logic and gaps in the facts all over this article. The main thing is that Apple is a bit player, for IBM, for Microsoft, for Dell, and for Intel. Apple's entrance into the...

For those of us who already own PPC machines, I'd agree. PPC support should continue in full swing for the expected useful life of our current products. I'd even say that this is true for anyone who...

I beg to differ. Apple wants everyone to upgrade as often as we are willing. That's never been different, never going to change. However, Apple knows that it can't force migration too soon or it...

I agree completely. If you read my first post, that's essentially what I said--Apple will encourage migration to MacTel by touting its advantages, not by dropping PPC support. I also emphasized...

That isn't what I was saying. I was using Classic as an example, only an example. I don't think Apple's switch to Intel has anything to do with Classic. I am simply saying Apple may have dumped...

Are you serious? In three years, when your Mac will become obselete you'll be getting rid of it? How long do you think your Wintel hardware will last you? Time and again, I've read studies that...

Actually, they didn't just ban ProudestMonkey. They banned ME. I go by a different handle at MacWorld than I do at MacCentral (long story). Both handles were banned.
