    The Best Old Mac Game Ever
  • What happened to Resolution Independence? Correct me if I'm wrong, but I haven't heard a single word about this. P.S. I'm pumped like hell for Leopard.

  • MacGlee, They did: G4 Cube (Commercial failure.)
  • Applecare was a godsend. I bought my iMac G5 in July 2005, less than a month later I was having tons of problems with my iMac. After 4 trips to Toronto from a small town in Northumberland county, Apple replaced it with another computer, free under Applecare and then gave me a 10% discount and 512 RAM free. Then with the new machine I've had to replace two logic boards. Applecare was a godsend.

    Commentary: Life Without AppleCare
  • Two things: 1 - I download both legally and illegally. However, the "illegal" music I download is a sort of copy of the music I buy on vinyl. Yes, vinyl is my choice of audio format and as far as I know, it's legal to have back-up copies of your music. 2 - Apple's DRM seems only to be in place to please the Music companies as we all see just how bloody easy it is to get around their DRM. M$... their story is up for debate. I don't want to get into it. Yet, their Zune Marketplace pricing and Zune Points system... is fucking retarded.

    Universal Calls MP3 Users Thieves
  • You know what would be great for iTunes and iPod? An iTunes store that sold movies and videos in Canada... I feel left out in the dark up here... Yes, we do have electricity.

    The New iPod Shuffle
  • Once Windows users see Aero and it's subsequent eye-candy, which comes out of every orifice in Vista, they'll forget there was ever a mention of some "X" thing, never mind a "Leopard". Vista doesn't have to be as good as Mac OS X, it just has to be better and prettier than 98 and XP, and that's exactly what they did for Vista. For most Windows users a switch is expensive, especially if you have a decent working PC, expecting many to jump ship because Vista isn't as good as OS X, is absurd. May those who have tired of Windows will switch, but it'll be a small number. Besides, Windows users are used to worrying about security holes in the OS, thats why Norton and McAfee exist. Security holes are "normal" and "workable".

    What is Leopard Up Against in Vista?
  • I've been running Firefox 2.0 for close to a week or two now and I've yet to see any real problem with it. It works... magnificently. I've been through Safari, which was my bread and butter, Camino (A novelty), Shirra, Firefox 1.0, Opera and even occasionally used IE through Classic just for fun and Firefox 2.0 is the first browser to pull me away from Safari. I love it.

    Win an iPod Shuffle
  • To Koreyel option-command-esc That's Apple's force quit app. To Chris, I don't know what I'd do without Expose. Everytime I have to fix my parents PC I throw my mouse to the corners trying to move the windows only to be reminded why I am fixing the computer. I think there's still tons of stuff that Steve hasn't showed us yet. I'm sure there'll be plenty of changes, he just wants to keep them to himself.

    Leopard Preview: Letdown or Return to Normalcy?
  • Perhaps, one of the reasons that they've (Apple) waited for so long to release the new top-of-the-line desktop computer, predecessor of the G5, is because they're going to name it the Apple IV. The names, Mac Pro, Macbook and Macbook Pro are supremely annoying. Whoever came up with them must have been not paying very much attention to the idea. I just think that after 25 years of not using the Apple moniker for their computers, a revival of the Apple in Apple's line-up would be awesome. But that's just my two cents, plus the Apple IV sounds better to than Mac Pro.

  • I really liked your article, but you forgot one thing, you never answered your title question. Why Is Vista So Resource Hungry?

    Why Is Vista So Resource Hungry?
  • The DRM problem is like games for Mac only. People don't throw protests when Half-Life and Battlefield 2 don't come out on Mac. They just accept it. To protest Apple allowing their music to only be played on their products isn't any different than Microsoft only allowing PC's to play Halo 2. Shouldn't those people be protesting something more worthwhile, like say for Greenpeace who actually does have a real cause?

    Is Big Brother on Your iPod?
  • I think one of the most important windows users are the ones you left out: the Grandma's of technology. They are the large group of people who don't give a damn about any OS just as long as they can play chess/solitare/Whatever. those people are most likely to buy the cheapets and most accessible computer and when those people already don't have a computer it's easiest just to go to Future Slop and get a silly little Dell.
