plays well with others

by Rob Friesel

Perhaps this is stating the obvious but amongst today’s clamor of Apple’s miscellaneous product updates1 was a related, relatively silent update:  the new AirPort Extreme. It’s an important but understated move that acknowledges two other products which did not get updated today:  the iPhone and the tv. Each model in the desktop line got refreshes […]

Yours Truly: Signature in Apple Mail

by Rob Friesel

A few months ago in my “pre-packaged [tag]Apple[/tag] apps vs. [tag]Mozilla[/tag] equivalents” round-up, I made mention of how Apple’s [tag]Mail[/tag] (or the dreaded “[tag]Mail.app[/tag]” if you prefer) application had mediocre [tag]signature[/tag] support.

I guess this is the death knell for Virtual PC, eh? UPDATE: This line from Slashdot caught my attention: Boot Camp will be a standard feature in Mac OS […]

Apple vs. Teh Postal Service

by Rob Friesel

So is anyone else just plain sick and tired of this freakin’ story? To me it’s just another chapter in the s/he said s/he said po-mo mythology of who said what when why where first and whether or not it’s all that original and/or (re?)mix-worthy in the first place. Statement one: [tag]The Postal Service[/tag]’s video […]

Macworld predictions

by Rob Friesel

It’s time for Macworld and once again, we find ourselves compelled to give in to the net’s peer pressure and do a prediction round-up with a sprinkling of our own predictions. Best-of-the-web style: the honorable Chuck Toporek has some well thought-out predictions and a mini round-up of his own over on MacDevCenter. Highlight reel includes […]

MacWorld Prognostication

by Rob Friesel

Not mine. This one a “Vegas-style” top ten list re: MacWorld from over on the ZDNet blogs… My favorite: 8. iWork ’06. Apple’s productivity suite will get upgrades to Pages and Keynote with the possible addition of a modern Office-killing spreadsheet application (rumored to be called “Numbers” or “Sheets“). If it reads and writes Excel […]
