MacOrama für den 25. September 2004

macoramaNachdem der ungeglückte Versuch von Jillian Myers ihr HP Tattoo vom iPod zu entfernen sich rasend schnell verbreitete, wurde sie inzwischen von HP kontaktiert: "Well, later in the day, I recieved another phone call, this time from someone more directly involved with this product. He wanted to verify the circumstances surrounding the use of the tattoo, making sure he had all the correct info. He said the product had been thoroughly tested, inside and out, in HP labs, by various employees, etc. I suggested perhaps it was because I had gotten mine out of the magazine, but he said they took several out of various issues of Rolling Stone and tested those too." (via Cult of Mac)

iMac G5 Benchmarks aus dem Macworld Labor: "As you could probably guess, the new G5-equipped iMacs out-performed than their G4-powered predecessors. Still, they weren’t as fast as the Power Mac models that come equipped with two G5 processors. Speedmark, our all-around system performance benchmark, showed that the 1.8 GHz iMac G5s were 35 percent faster than the 1.25GHz iMac G4. Some individual application tests, like rendering a scene using Maxon’s Cinema 4D, showed the new 1.8GHz iMac completing tasks in less than half the time it took the 1.25GHz G4 version."

Bryan Bell, Designer des NNW (und MarsEdit) Icons, erzählt von der Entstehungsphase: "The space ship took on more than a few forms. The first version was awful, and I'm really glad Brent gave me some push-back. A later version was more sleek, but the heavy outlines took away from the look, and the colors (Blue and Orange) confused beta testers who would accidently click on the Firefox icon instead of MarsEdit."

Mal wieder: "Apple Computer Inc.’s Apple.com was the leading site for hardware retailers by unique audience for the week ending Sept. 12 with 4.6 million unique visitors, Nielsen/NetRatings reports." InternetRetailer.com .
