MacOrama für den 25. August 2004

macoramaApple Store Guru Gary Allen schreibt für Think Secret über den Londoner Store, der nach seinen Quellen am 20. November eröffnet werden soll: "The designs on the facade were restored in 1999, and depict the arms of the City of London, a British Royal Lion holding the Royal Arms of the United Kingdom, the arms of the City of Westminster, the Lion of St. Mark symbolizing the city of Venice, and the arms of the Island of Murano, where the Venetian glass industry is still based. As for the several cities listed in gold above the mosaics (Paris, Berlin, St. Petersburg), they are not future Apple store sites! Instead, they are the cities where Salviati had his workshops." Inzwischen ist er außerdem in Japan angekommen und berichtet die nächsten Tage über die Eröffnung des Apple Store Shinsaibashi.

Häppchenweise veröffentlicht AlwaysOn das Walt Mossberg - Steve Jobs Interview von der D: all things digital-Konferenz, die Anfang Juni stattfand. Teil 4 widmet sich unter anderem der Virenfrage, der Jobs Zeitaufteilung zwischen Apple und Pixar, sowie der John Kerry Unterstützung: "Jobs: Some people have said that I shouldn't get involved politically because probably half our customers are Republicans—maybe a little less, maybe more Dell than ours. But I do point out that there are more Democrats than Mac users so I'm going to just stay away from all that political stuff because that was just a personal thing." [Teil eins, zwei und drei ebenfalls online verfügbar]

Nichts allzu Handfestes von AppleInsider: "AppleInsider has confirmed through multiple reliable sources that Apple is preparing to unveil new products early next week. The introductions are expected to begin appearing on the company's website as early as Monday evening."

Real CEO Rob Glaser führt Selbstgespräche auf der eigenen Seite: "The second group is much smaller but very vocal, and this is Mac users. This group generally knows that when they pick a Mac they are picking an experience they really like but likely at the expense of a lot of other choices – they can o­nly buy hardware from o­ne company, and many new applications and services start with Windows before moving to the Mac, if they ever do. This group tends to be fiercely protective of Apple. Their reaction has been “Well you haven’t enhanced our freedom of choice,” since Harmony doesn’t run o­n Macs today. What I’d say to those people is that we are certainly open to studying the idea of bringing Harmony to the Mac platform, and I would not rule this out in the future."

Virex 7.5 ist wie erwartet mit Vorsicht zu genießen: "Any bug that results in data loss is inexcusable in a final, non-beta release -- especially when that bug was known (and publicized) over four months prior to the final release. Considering the severity of this issue, we recommend against installing Virex 7.5 until a fix is available." Bei MacFixIt.

Man merkt, dass selbst bei den draußen vorherrschenden gesetzteren Temperaturen das Sommerloch immer noch vorherrschend ist. Der Wireless iPod geistert schon wieder umher, die HPiPod Einführung steht schon wieder immer noch bevor, der Apple Store London kommt immer noch 2004 und weitere ähnliche Recycle-News musste man heute wieder reihenweise überlesen.

Tony Smith testet Macrovision CDS-300 version 7 beta: "CDS-300 version 7 is scheduled to be released next month. It's still in beta, so Macrovision may well have the Mac OS X issue sorted out by then, if it can figure out how to hide the CD Audio session from the OS. If it doesn't, it may well get Apple's co-operation to tweak the OS in a future update. Macrovision is confident that it will support Apple's FairPlay DRM scheme in a Q4 software update, suggesting that it has reached, or is about to reach, an accord with the Mac maker. If it licenses FairPlay it may well persuade Apple to neuter OS X's CD Audio mounting."
