MacOrama für den 9. Februar 2005

MacOramaWie AI beiläufig erwähnt, hat Apple zwei neue Markenzeichen eintragen lassen. 'VoiceOver' dürfte für das Spoken Interface in 10.4 verwendet werden und Trademark Nummer 2 namens Bonjour könnte, so zumindest meine Vermutung, an Stelle von 'OpenTalk' als Nachfolger für 'Rendezvous' herhalten.

That Pepsi GirlLangsam könnte man den Eindruck bekommen, ich sei besessen von den ermüdenden Pepsi iTunes Spots und deshalb dürfte das (hoffentlich) die letzte Geschichte dazu sein: Dem im Pepsi iTunes Spot vorkommenden 'Pepsi Girl' wurde nämlich ein eigenes Blog gewidmet: "Oh Pepsi Girl. I wish i knew your name. Because i'm in love with you Pepsi Girl. Your eyes, that smile, they way you unscrew that bottle of Pepsi... you're so hot. I love you. Please marry me. I'll buy you all the Pepsi in the world. And maybe an iPod too." Und während unromantische Zeitgenossen hinter diesen Zeilen einen mehr oder weniger ausgeklügelten Pepsi Marketingschachzug vermuten könnten, urteilt Adrants: Nein, Pepsi hat damit nix zu tun. Andere Gerüchten deuten darauf hin, dass es sich bei dem Pepsi Girl eher um eine Pixar-Wesen handeln dürfte, wie Markus schonungslos offenlegte.

Kein Satellitenradio für den iPod. CNN Money: "I've spoken to Steve Jobs," said Karmazin [Chef von Sirius], speaking Wednesday morning at a media conference in New York. He declined to elaborate, other than to say that the "current thinking" at Apple is that "they don't need to put a satellite radio in their box."

Im Adressbuch lassen sich auch Gruppen in anderen Gruppen platzieren. Einfach die ein Gruppe auf die andere ziehen. Leider wird das im übergeordneten Icon nicht explizit angezeigt. Steht zwar auch in der Adressbuchhilfe, mir war es jedenfalls ebenso neu, wie dem macosxhints Einreicher.

Dan Gillmor schreibt für die Computerworld erneut über die Apple vs. Think Secret Klage: "While we can sympathize with Apple's desire to keep product announcements quiet until the day it wants to make them, a vibrant press is more important than a company's product secrecy -- despite Apple's pious claim that it's not attacking free speech. If a company wants to take steps to control its own employees' activities, including firing or suing workers who reveal secrets, that's its right. When it seeks to put a gag on the people who merely receive the information, that's going way too far."
Interessante Einschätzung zu Gillmors Artikel bzw. der Angelegenheit von Jonas Luster: "So the question is not as much in how far Nick is protected by the First Amendment or enjoys the same journalistic freedoms as any writer for a traditional media outlet should, but wether he violated the terms of an NDA he signed voluntarily and which he likely signed hoping his real persona and his online nomer “Nick dePlume” would never be linked."

Alu shuffle HülleiPodlounge: "He said it was made on a CNC (Computer Numerical Control) milling machine and allows access to all ports, controls, and LEDs.[...] "The front and back half of the case are joined together by 4 very small screws. I have no need to take it out of the case anymore," he explains. "The headphones come in from the top, USB from the bottom, and there is also a window on the back for the on/off/shuffle slider and battery button. It is lined on the front, back, top, bottom, and sides with black velvet."

razzfazz: "This is a hack to activate two-finger scrolling on supported pre-2005 PowerBooks and iBooks (i.e. those with a "W-Enhanced" trackpad, including most AlBooks and recent iBooks) on OS X 10.3 (tested on 10.3.7)." Project Builder wird benötigt und es hält bis zum nächsten Neustart.

TMO: "Using data similar to that released last December in its desktop ratings report, the Consumers Union (CU) said Apple had the fewest repairs of laptops at 16%. Toshiba and Sony were second and third at 17%. Gateway had the worst laptop repair ranking among more than 57,000 CU members at 23%. A similar survey of 69,000 desktop users gave Apple the best repair history at just 13%. As for technical support for laptops, Apple got a readers score of 84, making it the highest of any PC manufacturer."
