MacOrama für den 06. August 2004

macoramaJobs ist weiterhin auf dem Wege der Besserung: "In a conference call with analysts and press, Pixar president Ed Catmull provided an update on Jobs' recovery from cancer surgery. Catmull said he had just visited Jobs and said he was "doing great" and that his recovery is going "very well." "He was cracking jokes and will be firing off a lot of e-mail from his Powerbook in the next month," Catmull said." Bei Macminute, dort lassen sich auch die Pixar Quartalszahlen nachlesen: "Pixar, the animation studio headed by Apple CEO Steve Jobs, has announced a second quarter profit of US$37.4 million, or 63 cents per share, thanks to the continuing success of "Finding Nemo" on home video."

iPhoto liegt nun in Version 4.0.3 vor und es hätte wirklich nicht geschadet, wenn Apple den Grund für das Verschwinden von 4.0.2 freundlich kommentiert hätte. Einziger Unterschied, der mir zu 4.0.2 aufgefallen ist: die Library wird nach der Installation aktualisiert.

Walt Mossberg mag zwar das iPod im BMW Konzept, aber: "But the BMW adapter is still a disappointment because of the limitations it imposes on the normal use of the iPod. When you play a song, you lose all of the visual information the iPod displays about the song's title, artist and album. All you see on the car's audio display are arbitrary track numbers. And the only playlists the system can handle are special ones you have to set up and name "BMW1" through "BMW5."

Prof. iPod Dr. Bull im Playlist-Interview: "We are more complicated than the cultural industry would like us to be - hopefully beyond commodification. I say Herbert Marcuse would probably have liked it - which is fine by me!

Und natürlich ein bezeichnender Fehler.

Außerdem Wissenswertes aus dem Terminal - heute:
08/06 Atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima, 1945
(So geht das).
