    OK, I hear you. Seriously then, the white MacBook is a great machine. It's light-grey inside if that makes any difference to you ;)

    But if you don't need a new laptop right now, it's always better to wait. Lucky for you that Macworld SF is just around the corner and something new always gets announced. I'd be surprised though if these laptops see any changes then though. The next update will be nearer summer 2007 I reckon, when Intel start shipping the 800Mhz bus Merom updates with Santa Rosa.

    I'm a serial watcher of these things. I can wait a little while longer yet as my current machine still works ok.

    The next time she sends him out to buy pads, I'll bet she's more specific...

    Epic :D

    Anyways, I'm glad to be gay - some heterosexual couples I know seem to be living in a d/s relationship, not quite the kind of thing I'm interested in.

    Oh, and of course it's a nice move by Apple :P

    This is complete bullcrap, people. Over the air updates will come, but over WiFi. Doing this over 3G makes no sense.

    DROIDs already do all updates over 3G and VZW likes it that way.
    So if VZW is involved they will opt for updates over 3G
    This may mean that VZW will be keeping unlimited data on the iphone, and may have changed their minds about ending unlimited data when it comes to the iphone. I think VZW has noticed that having unlimited data makes them more attractive when competing against ATT+T-mobile merger super company.

    Is that why AT&T sold a lot more iPhones that vz last quarter?

    Also vz just wants you to go over your cap. More money for them

    I don't know if it's technically feasible now, but I'd like to see Apple remove the bezels across their mobile line. The resulting form factor would be awesome.

    Screw Wal-mart! They should shrivel up and die. I grew up in the epicenter of Wal-Mart's birthplace and it is nothing more than a plague on small-town (and larger city) life.

    I don't quite have this same level of hatred for them, but I have a few things to say about them.

    They are the Sears of our time. Back when I grew up in the 70's, Sears was still a big deal and manufacturers bent over for them, and everybody looked forward to getting the new Sears catalog, it was a big deal. They had the balls to rebadge the Atari and Intellivision consoles of the day just to stroke their own ego, and Atari and Mattel eagerly complied. Their "Craftsman" brand? They rebadge other people's products.

    Do you realize how much power the Wal-Marts and K-Marts of the world have? Do you realize that music labels have to press alternate, family friendly versions of their albums for Wal-Mart and the normal version for everybody else? Some products are kept off the market entirely if they can't get shelf space at Wal-Mart. I went through this experience personally around 10 years ago with an edutainment software title I worked on.

    At the end of the day, they will fail and crumble just like Sears did, because they become rigid and arrogant and will no longer "get it".

    Now, Wal-Mart should feel threatened by iTunes selling movies. So should Blockbuster, DVD Empire, heck the entire physical media industry and foodchain should be worried. But the movie studios love it no matter what they say in public, because it opens the door for more oppressive DRM, which is what they wanted all along -- the ability to control your media and charge you every time you watch it.

    Well, wow. How uneducated you are.


    You don't lose privacy, fair use, extensibility, programmability, style, ease of use, and productivity on PCs. I run Windows XP, Linux, FreeBSD, and Mac OS 7.6.1 on my Athlon 1400MHz. I don't lose those things you mention while using Linux or FreeBSD. Hell, I don't lose them even in Windows. I know what to avoid.

    Well, I like to listen to music on an MP3 player. Windows does not natively support MP3. I don't like product activation, as it means I have to call and reactivate when I change a bunch of hardware, which I'm likely to do enough for it to be a problem. I don't like paying for an OS with an insecure foundation. I don't like paying for an OS which with IE 'removed' still manages to pop up ads in ... IE. I don't like a dos cli, which has some UNIX commands, but ususally requires DOS commands.

    Extensibility. Let's see. Have you ever looked at the Microsoft.NET platform? It's an excellent platform for development. Microsoft.NET completely replaces their old ****ty Win32. In fact, Microsoft.NET isn't even tied to Win32. I run implementations of Microsoft.NET on Linux and FreeBSD. Microsoft.NET is the, if not one of the, most extensible application programming framework ever engineered. It takes the concept of SUN's Java and made it an unified framework for several specific languages of which are designed for specific types of programming, for example, C# should be used for general applications programming, VB.NET should be used for quick and simple solutions, JScript.NET for scripting, Eiffel.NET for mathematics, Delphi.NET for whatever Delphi was for. Best of all, you can even program dll's in separate languages and combine them in one powerful program. That's some serious leveraging you don't have in UNIX without making wrappers for each language. Microsoft has said bye bye to dll hell (Microsoft.NET actually adopts the UNIX versioning system. Before, it was conflicting versions of dll's that couldn't be installed at the same time. But now, you can have multiple dll's and no dll hell) Besides, I also run *n?x on my PC, that's extreme extensibility by using free OSes. I get benefits of UNIX on my PC as well.

    .net is an entirely closed initiative. JScript is JavaScript crippled for IE only. C# is (from what I've heard) bad C++. I have tried to avoid .net for many reasons. I enjoy open standards. I like learning languages which are more likely to succeed in the broadest audience. I hate the whole .dll structure. COM/ASP services I have built in the past refused to scale well.

    Outside of that, I see nothing wrong with .net, and some people will surely code for it, as long as its around.

    Style. You're saying that PC users don't have style? Maybe their style is to buy affordable computers, run them fast, get **** done. Various people have different style flavors.

    No what I'm saying is that Apple is a company that invest heavily in its industrial design, its UI development, etc. which gives it a high degree of style.

    The hardware of Apple's line, love it or hate it, is highly stylized. The OS has a lot more visual appeal, and more thoughful and intuitive layout. It's bloody UNIX my Granny sends me email from. Windows is available as delivered in Marshmellow or 98 Mode. It just looks bad...

    Ease of use. Windows XP is easy enough. Hell, command line UNIX is easy for me to use. Sure Mac OS X might be easier to use than Windows XP. But seriously, who cares. Windows has an established GUI that many people know how to use.

    The ease of use argument is primarily focused opn productivity.

    In Windows, when you empty the trash, an alert/confirmation box appears. You can then change focus to another window, burying the alert box, and freezing the OS, so you have to drill down through all the windows you have open to answer this alert before continuing.

    Windows will take you through a great help tour in order to tell you it can't help you.

    Little annoying counter-intuitive time wasters abound.

    I have both, I use both, I code on both, and I just feel from experience that the Mac is a better environment to code on. As I said, I'm not rendering, so the raw speed advantages of x86 are lost to the clunkiness of the UI.

    Productivity. Mac OS X is the worst OS for productivity at least for me. It's so frickin' slow drawing all the eye candy crap. At least in Windows XP you can turn them off. Ease of use does not necessarily equate to productivity. Ease of use *AND* GUI responsiveness sum to equate mostly what productivity. Windows XP has both. Mac OS X has only the ease of use while people need huge amounts of RAM on a lower end Mac to run it at least fast enough. Windows XP is usable on a Pentium II 233MHz with 128MB RAM just fine.

    I will happily concede that RAM and system spec can make all the difference here, and that Windows will run on a broader base of machines.

    My main machine is a DP867 with 2GB of RAM and a ATA133 RAID.

    It is as responsive it can be.

    People already piss and moan about it. If apple really wanted to have a low environmental impact they would build their products where they have Higher standards for environmental quality.

    They do. Changed their packaging to minimum needed as best as possible.
    Using material that can be recycled, pcb free cables etc.etc.

    If they give the production to FoxConn they can only get involved to a certain point. Too much demands on their partners and they won't get any production.

    The Chinese and other countries have and still are learning that at the end of the day, they need trees, clean water etc., so they do adapt.

    Because there is a lot of new technology out, they go through the environmental adaptation process faster than others in previous years.

    The same guy I was talking too (at NextByte) told me that they had no Macbook deliveries for over a week, which they had never seen.

    He also told me he'd heard that there will be a 15 inch MacBook Pro!!!

    Well, don't believe him. The fact that there already is a 15" MBP should be evidence that Apple will never release a 15" MBP.

    Something in the air? FAA bans laptop use due to electromagnetic interference.
    No, you can use laptops mid-flight, just not during take-off or landing (just like any other electronic device).

    I know it's a long shot, but anyone remember this announcement awhile back: Apple Announces iPod Airplane Integration (http://www.macrumors.com/2006/11/14/apple-announces-ipod-airplane-integration/)

    You have to consider the problems that Apple has had with heat and portables of late. There would likely be heat issues with such a portable, which makes it even more plausible that Apple won't make such a portable.

    That's why I suggested sometime in 2007 after Santa Rosa.

    When I first saw Core Animation and Spaces and how they worked and what they were capable of I immediately thought of what many people here have said before when Boot Camp first came out.

    These two technologies, when combined, could make possible the idea of "Fast OS Switching". Could one of the "Top Secret" features be that Boot Camp was just there as a primer. It will still be there and operate in the same way but without the re-booting hassle. With Core Animation and Spaces, you could possibly have it running just as another user and "Fast Switch" between them. Being a part of Leopard now-(Boot Camp) it would stand to reason that these new technologies will be more easily accessable and used by Boot Camp.

    Just a thought, let me know what you think.:D

    I agree, and am fortunate to have a legit edu connection. That said, companies vary on their proof requirements. Apple, in my experience, will give you the edu price by just saying you are a student/teacher/buying it for one. I've seen them sell a Mac at that price to grandparents, etc. Pretty decent policy. MS just requires a .edu email, but then again technet is so cheap that the edu discount pales. of course, with technet using the software in a production environment is a license violation.

    Right, and 9 times out of 10 the Apple Specialist will just give you the discount just so he/she can attach Mobile Me and Applecare and whatever else . . . . . oh that was just me. :D

    Seriously though the requirements for that EDU discount are just as you said, nothing more than mentioning it or purchasing it through an online store. At the end of the day, you will OWN your EDU copy of a software title rather than some garbled up binary from a torrent made to look like a piece of software.

    Oh ya. I have several pieces of glass that individually cost more than the body. People complain about software lock in; MS / APPLE ?Adobe et. al. have nothing on the camera manufacturers and their proprietary mounts.

    True! That Nikkor 85mm 1.4 I am drooling over is going for $2200, far more than the price of my $1200 D7000 (which trumps the D2xs it replaced in so many ways).

    Well spoken, blitzkrieg79.

    It is amazing to me that otherwise intelligent people parrot the corporate line that its simply not possible to manufacture products domestically and remain profitable. Do people really think that $80 name brand shirts, $140 shoes, or the $2500 computers being made on the other side of the planet are being sold at a price anywhere near what it actually cost to make? C'mon.

    Why is it every time a company moves manufacturing overseas, we never see a reduction in the price?

    If Apple was just barely squeezing out a profit and scraping by, holding on by their fingernails, I'd buy their line about needing to manufacture practically everything overseas, but we're talking about a company that makes absolutely enormous profits.

    So Apple simply can't afford to manufacture here anymore? Well, how much profit did Apple make last quarter, again? Haha, sure, right.

    Jul 23, 07:19 AM

    So, in this situation, would the Military Complex be called an entitlement program, as much of it exists solely to keep people from starving or going homeless? Because that's what it sounds like to me when you talk about it like this.

    Yeah, I would say it is a huge entitlement program, but its impact crosses socio-economic lines. Wealthy people are subsidized by Pentagon profligacy just as much as the lower classes. Bear in mind, also, that service represents a route out of poverty for some people. But, really, with a wide-angle lens, many government programs affect more than just their central focus. Education, for example.

    My personal opinion is that our socio-economic system is already so horribly feudal, broken and unstable that any reasonable, measured action we take to fix it amounts to duct tape on the reactor core.
