    Oops, Steve Jobs has a new slide to add to his Keynote Presentation

    I beg your pardon? I made no predictions regarding any hardware announcements.

    Oops, Steve Jobs has a new slide to add to his Keynote Presentation

    How about, don't believe anything Seth_L says about computers and Apple? Having posted erroneous information throughout the two current threads, today we learn that your claims about the new iPod, citing inside sources, is false as well. "Apple Rolls Out Cheaper iPod"...

    iTunes, Apple ultimately in trouble?

    You are claiming, on this public board, that you personally know people employed by Apple Computer that have violated their non-discolure agreement and revealed to you specifically information pertaining to an upcoming product? Such is a remarkable admonition.

    iTunes, Apple ultimately in trouble?

    Wow. These are some of the most fantastic comments I have ever read on any forum. The funniest response is the following: Executive of the Year Steve's Jobs: Balancing performance at Pixar, innovation at Apple San Francisco Business Journal December 29, 2003...

    iTunes, Apple ultimately in trouble?

    I don't think I could fathom any comparisons between OS X and XP. Entirely different heritage and divergent technologies. OS X is Unix based: Aqua is the Mac UI. Darwin is the core OS. Darwin combines Mach (based on Mach 3.0 from Carnegie Mellon University) with BSD (customized version...

    iTunes, Apple ultimately in trouble?

    You are mistaken. I said that they were selling iMacs brand new, first quality, for $600. Absolute fact. And in the weeks after Sept. 11, 2001, Apple reduced the price to $499 brand new in certain markets. I was not refering to current LCD models. As far as current iMacs, here is the iMac...

    iTunes, Apple ultimately in trouble?

    I should add that almost every one of my Linux using friends are now running on Apple hardware. Linux on PowerPC has become very popular. And a big part of IBMs future. My close friend, who professionally administered NT networks, and then went on to become somewhat of a Linux guru, and is...

    iTunes, Apple ultimately in trouble?

    Huh? They were selling iMacs for as low as $600, new from Apple. Now with LCDs and superior procs they are a bit more. There's an eMac G4/800 128/40/CD/100BT 17-inch CRT for $529 at the Apple store right now. I am laying on my back (watching the Packers game) typing this on an iBook G3...

    Oops, Steve Jobs has a new slide to add to his Keynote Presentation

    Huh? No, that quote indicates that it's purpose is of course to sell iPods, but it contradicts that it is loss leader. Again, my point is that the current Time magazine article, the quote above, indicates that there is a profit, albeit a small one. Comparatively miniscule in fact. The quote...

    iTunes, Apple ultimately in trouble?

    I work in film production on a different level, with all due respect. I have participated or been privy to the creation of countless DVDs discussed on this board. I have controlled Arri motion pitcure cameras with Apple Powerbooks. I edited on Amigas in film school. My first computer was an...

    Oops, Steve Jobs has a new slide to add to his Keynote Presentation

    Please provide a source supporting this claim. I have already provided a source, posted in the other thread where you aremaking the same assertions, indicating that it is profitable, with the costs explained. I'll again quote the current Time article on the Apple Music Store as "Invention...

    Oops, Steve Jobs has a new slide to add to his Keynote Presentation

    Again, how can you call something that is profitable a loss leader? It's not a high profit margin, but taken alone it is profitable nonetheless.

    iTunes, Apple ultimately in trouble?

    Paul, that's a over-simplistic generalization of Jobs' application (read innovation) of the concepts he saw at PARC and how it was presented in an entertainment TV movie. And what existed at PARC was hardly the windows environment brought forth by Jobs, but far more basic concepts of a GUI...

    iTunes, Apple ultimately in trouble?

    First, I'm not a rabid Apple fan. Neither would I bash a company using erroneous information and skewed semantics. I am a pragmatric realist, thank you. And incidentally I have never owned a computer that used a Microsoft OS or Intel processor, and I've owned a lot of computers. It is plainly...

    iTunes, Apple ultimately in trouble?

    Are you serious? With all due respect, that is absurd. Innovation means the introduction of something new. Thus, Apple has been profoundly innovative and introduced many technologies to your world over the years, no matter if you were using Apple hardware or software. From bringing you the...

    iTunes, Apple ultimately in trouble?

    I am reading many articles that indicate that it is profitable on it's own, thus it is not a loss leader. Though of course it's purpose is to serve iPod sales. So, you may have no point there. From the current Time magazine article on the Apple Music Store as "Invention of the Year"...

    Apple showing an upcoming product "around"? Nonsense.

    wilco fans - suggest an album for me

    Actually, I would get Wilco's albums in the order you listed. Plus it's still linear, just backwards. UT Anthology doesn't do justice. Definitely pick up all four UT albums. And as someone else mentioned, the first Mermaid Ave. is a must. Have you listened to Son Volt too? While AM...

    Mac hater! (spoken in Dutch accent)

    Rob, the terminal app isn't included for show. Any Unix OS is going to have command line behind the GUI. To put all this into perspective one has to understand what Mac OS X is: Aqua is the Mac UI. Darwin is the core OS. Darwin combines Mach (based on Mach 3.0 from Carnegie Mellon...

    Mac hater! (spoken in Dutch accent)

    Joseph, I don't like my OS to suck, ya know what I'm sayin? ;) Seriously, though... I really don't tweak that much. Performance wise I do, and interface wise I get minimalist and get stuff out of my way and then I use the damn machine.

    Mac hater! (spoken in Dutch accent)

    Okay, this is for those who haven't even sat in the driver's seat, much less looked under the hood of OS X. Right there under the Apple menu you will find the Dock prefs. Please adjust so as to move past some aversion to a most basic and optional UI setting. The pane looks like this...

    Mac hater! (spoken in Dutch accent)

    Michael, I have a hard time believing that your post in legitimate and sincere. That would make this first reference I have ever read to an iMac being confusing. It's prob the least confusing hardware on the planet. And in 20 years of use I've never heard of anyone calling Apple with usage...

    Jeff, here are some examples of Mac OS X desktops is various degrees of customization. It's not about liking them, but seeing that these users easily changed things up. http://members.rogers.com/greyvander...ots/Image2.jpg http://www.621.org/~carbon/images/sc.../chosenone.jpg...

    Rocket fuel for both sides, if you're looking for such. Yes, pun intended, geeze. from Derek Kent: "NASA recently benchmarked Apple's dual 2GHz Power Mac G5 at its Langley Research Center in Virginia. The main purpose of the tests was to compare the G5 to the G4 for 'computational fluid...
