Äußerst wissenswertes aus der Knowledge Base:
What is an operating system (OS)? "The current version of Mac OS is Mac OS X (pronounced "Mac O-S ten").[…] Tip: An operating system includes thousands of files, many of which are protected so you can't accidentally remove them." und
What is the Matrix Finder? "Before Apple reinvented the personal computer with Macintosh in 1984, finding something on a computer could be kind of scary. There were often no nice, neat folders."
Hilfreicher:
Minimizing how often you see "Optimizing System Performance" during software installation: "Simply open more than one installation package file at the same time. The Installer application will queue up the packages and install them in order. This even works with third-party package files that use Installer."

Schönes metamac Interview mit Norbert Heger, Entwickler von LaunchBar, eines der wirklich pflichtprogrammigsten Programme für OS X überhaupt: "metamac: Im Zusammenhang mit Mac OS 10.4 und den enthaltenen Neuerungen, die Shareware-Werkzeugen gleichen, wird neben Safari RSS (= NetNewsWire?) und Dashboard (= Konfabulator?) auch gerne LaunchBar (= Spotlight-Suche?) genannt. Fühlen Sie sich von Apple „bedroht“?
Heger: Ganz im Gegenteil. Ich denke LaunchBar und Spotlight können einander hervorragend ergänzen."

Das iPhoto Update 4.0.2 wurde zurückgezogen, wie blueribbon in den Kommentaren schreibt: "Apple hat inzwischen das iPhoto-Update 4.0.2 heimlich, still und leise wieder kassiert, da es sich gern mal bei der Beendigung aufhängt." (Danke für Hinweis+Lob!) Ich konnte bisher glücklicherweise keine Probleme bei mir feststellen.

"What they [RealNetworks] are doing is a huge risk, there is no doubt about that," Scott Culpepper, a partner at Atlanta-based law firm Thomas, Kayden, Horstemeyer & Risley, told MacCentral. "I would suspect Apple will file some type of legal action against them -- I'd be very surprised if they don't. It depends on what [RealNetworks] did -- there are several avenues that Apple may have," said Culpepper. The DMCA, general copyright law, and Apple's own license for iTunes all come into play."

"Apple's chief product designer Jonathan Ive is described as a 'Mac Daddy' in the September issue of Men's Journal magazine." steht bei TMO.

Ive wäre ja mein heimlicher Nachfolgekandidat für Steve.

Ralle hat beeindruckende Geschäftsideen rund um den explosionsartig wachsenden Markt mit iPod Zubehör: "Die von mir hochgeschätzten und aufrichtig verehrten fleißigen Strickbloggerinnen stricken iPod-Hüllen mit Blog-Symbolen statt des siebten Pullovers für ihre Lieben, und ich verkaufe sie, über die Prozente werden wir uns schon einig."

ifoapplestore berichtet weiter ausführlich über die Fassade des zukünftigen Londoner Apple Store: "The distinctive mosaics along the second-floor level of the building were installed to advertise an early tenant, Dr. Antonio Salviati, who designed and manufactured mosaics. He was one of the principals responsible for the rebirth of Venetian glass after its nadir under the Austrian rule of Venice, and had British partners and a London shop."

"The iPod platform shares important characteristics with the RSS platform. In effect, the device is an aggregation hub for time-critical information. As RSS aggregators begin to prioritize information according to the user's subscription patterns (attention.xml), the resulting caching of relevant data improves. Applying this triage to audio streams will improve the iPod's value proposition accordingly." schreibt Steve Gillmor bei ZDNet.

emotemail
"EmoteMail is an email client that is augmented to convey aspects of the writing context to the recipient. The client captures facial expressions and typing speed and introduces them as design elements. These contextual cues provide extra information that can help the recipient decode the tone of the mail. Moreover, the contextual information is gathered and automatically embedded as the sender composes the email, allowing an additional channel of expression." (via Engadget)
