A video has surfaced that supposedly shows the developer version of the x86 version of Tiger running on a Dell Laptop. It seems very clear to me that this is a hoax. Not only does the video neglect to provide the easiest proof — a clear […] Read more »

It’s a flashback to 1995. Macs were still using Power PC in the far future. I was still using Windows at home of all things. And TopXNotes must have been created around this time. It has all the classic signs of.. well.. clasic-isms. Now to be […] Read more »

This is slightly Off Topic, but a good little read. You’ll see the relevance at the end. It’s a comment from Slashdot, on the post titled, “Nerds Make Better Lovers”. You can read the comment at Slashdot, here, or below, as I’ve copied and pasted it. […] Read more »

I’ve just got to vent a little bit here. The ‘Intel Announcement’ has Mac loyalists, analysts, bloggers, etc, etc, all in a tizzy – and why exactly?? Let’s take a look at what this means on a basic level… I understand there will be growing pains. […] Read more »

Following on from an earlier post, it seems that Japan’s record companies’ phobia of digital music distribution (by foreign companies) has been overcome. Mostly, anyway.

It is unclear at this time whether there’ll be any reliable WiFi access during the keynote itself. Even if there is, everybody will be on it trying to do exactly what we’ll be doing. We’ve got quite a few contingency plans in place so we’re reasonably optimistic. Read more »
