MacOrama für den 24. März 2005 [Update]

MacOramaReuters meldet, dass Apple die Klage gegen einen der drei Tiger per Torrent verteilenden ADC-Mitglieder beigelegt hat: "While Apple will always protect its innovations, it is not our desire to send students to jail," hieß es von Apple. Als Teil der Einigung muss der 22jährige eine Entschädigung in ungenannter Höhe an Apple zahlen, sowie eine reuige Stellungnahme verbreiten: "Although I did not mean to do any harm, I realize now that my actions were wrong and that what I did caused substantial harm to Apple, and for that I am truly sorry," Steigerwald, who graduated in December, said in an e-mail through his attorney. "I am grateful for the chance to resolve this lawsuit and move on with my life and hope that any publicity generated by this lawsuit discourages others from making the same mistake as I did."

Die NYT berichtet über Apples anhaltenden Cease & Desist-Kampf gegen die munter weiter plaudernden Gerüchteseiten. Dabei wird die Person hinter macosxrumors interviewt, bemerkenswert im Vergleich zu einem Spymac-Interview derselben Person vor zwei Tagen.
Spymac: "Though only three rumor sites are involved in the litigation, other rumor sites have recently seen the number of reliable anonymous sources drop. "We noticed that some of our annonymous sources, which were informing us with reliable information on Mac OS X development, stopped sending us information," Alexandros Roussos of MacosXrumors told Spymac."
NYT: "At the same time, Mr. Roussos said the dispute between Apple and Web sites operators did not appear to have reduced gossip about Apple. "Even though we lost contact with some sources, the rumor flow is still quite the same," he said. "The fact that there are quite reliable ways to share information anonymously is probably the reason why sources sometimes persist."

Cam Pod"Steve Jobs won't ever tell you -- but we will. Here's what a trail of intriguing evidence reveals about where the world's hottest company is going." Business 2.0 spekuliert über Apples Zukunft. Wenig neues gibt es da zu lesen, das Wesentliche des 7seitigen kostenpflichtigen Beitrages hat die iPodLounge. "For the first time in more than a decade, Apple has a chance to become a commercially powerful company — not just a very cool place with a superstar CEO and brilliant designers, but a leader in new markets that are exponentially bigger than the very computer industry it pioneered (...). The sizzle is in what Apple comes up with to turbocharge the iPod — or to create entirely new devices so irresistible that, iPod-like, they'll blast open vast new markets." Bilder gibt's für umsonst, die Mockups sind von einem Team rund um Apples früheren Chefdesigner Robert Brunner gestaltet. (jpf)
Kleiner weitere Ausschnitt aus dem Artikel (Danke, Sam!): "Discussions with past and present company officials, Apple partners, and longtime acquaintances of Jobs, as well as clues in patent applications and other evidence, point to a gargantuan effort to leverage the iPod's success by creating an entire line of breakout consumer electronics devices. Dozens of gadgets -from an iPod phone to wireless iPods that talk to one another to the ultimate all-in-one home-cum-car media hub- appear to be on the drawing board or, in some cases, already in prototype."

AppleInsider: "Apple has secured a lease in the Dutch capital of Amsterdam, according to  macned.nl. The report says the location is Building 16 in Dam Square, a historically famous location just beside the Royal Palace. The lease will not take effect until sometime this summer as the current tenants, Rabobank and Fortis -- two of the Netherland's largest bank chains -- both have a few months on their existing leases."

Nach Ansicht des Detroit Free Press-Kolumnisten Mike Wendland ist Apples Pages geeignet, aus jedem Laien einen Design-Experten zu machen. Er selbst sei begeistert von dem Programm: "After first being blasé about Pages, I am now gaga over it. The more I use it, the more blown away I am by its elegance. (...) I've played around with most of the other design software over the years, and Pages beats them all in ease of operation and the sheer beauty of its output. It's immediately usable by kids and even computer-challenged adults. (jpf)

Nicht nur ix ist müde, auch mich bringt das Syschmantec-Zeug leidlich zum Gähnen. Vielleicht noch ein zwei kleine TMO Ausschnitte dazu, die mit Symantec-Mann Cole sprachen (Hervorhebungen von mir): "While Mr. Cole admitted there is no actual data to prove a connection, he said say "it's reasonable to assume that with in increase in market share and popularity comes an increased interest by the hacker attacker community to go after the Mac."[...]
Mr. Cole said the biggest "holes" for hackers to attack are vulnerabilities in browsers, where 70% of reported vulnerabilities were considered easy to exploit.[...] The report called the zero number of confirmed Safari vulnerabilities "somewhat surprising given the increasing popularity of Mac OS X," but suggested that as the browser grows in usage, so will the attacks."

Apple hat am Mittwochnachmittag das Security Update 2005-003 für Mac OS X 10.3.8 Server zurückgezogen. Ein auf Mac OS X Server basierender Mailserver funktionierte nach der Installation des Updates nicht mehr, da das in dem Update enthaltene Cyrus Probleme machte. Die Reinstallation von Mac OS X 10.3.8 mithilfe des entsprechenden Combo Updates sollen die Mailserver-Probleme aus der Welt schaffen. Das Security Update für die Clientversion ist nicht betroffen.
