    Want to really make it good, be able to do wireless between the iPod and the Zune. That will get Bill Gate's undies in a twist!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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. Windows XP has less BSODs these days, but when they do occur, it's usually memory corruption. That's what you get for not using top notch RAM. I've had people who have gotten kernel panics as much as BSODs. Myself, I haven't gotten a single BSOD since my install of Windows XP except when I overclocked my CPU, but that's not XP's fault. XP even ran when Linux wouldn't boot with 1400MHz@1522MHz.

    By the way, the PC is not Windows. Windows is an operating system. The PC is a collection of computer components independent from OSes. So don't dare to say PCs are catching up in stability--they're already friggin' stable.

    I simply use what makes me productive. The only reason I'm a Mac guy is because I'm a PC, Sun, IBM (POWER4), etc. guy who likes to have and play with them all. In fact, my first computer was IIsi--they kicked ass back then. They still kick ass today IMHO so I still have old Macs around to tinker around to have fun.

    I was talking about a new one not a refurbished one. I want to buy the core duo macbook after the c2d ones are released because i do not need the uprgrades and i could get a good deal. The core duo macbook pros dropped $300 so i was wondering how much the macbooks would drop.

    I was talking about the new ones aswell :rolleyes: the refurb shop also sells stock they want to get rid of and that includes old macbooks.

    A child does not naturally grow up to be socially responsible or kind. They naturally grow up to be self-centered and violent unless a parent or authority teaches them otherwise.

    As negative as I think religion can be, it has set a code of conduct for people that enables cooperation and empathy for others. Although we don't need religion to teach people morals, we need some agreed upon code of conduct.

    You might say that the laws of a country serve that purpose, but they don't. They are simply rules everyone must follow and any despotic ruler can set awful laws that can hurt people. Therefore, the code of conduct has to be separate from the law.

    If atheism has any future, its needs some type of unified, agreed upon code.

    Now if we can come to accept that they're are in fact a number of problems within the black community (at least in the United States, I'm not particularly well aware of whats going on in the UK). I think they're are a number of things that can be done to mitigate the problem.

    First Social Welfare Programs:

    We already have some of these and I'm not particularly well educated on what they provide but these are CRUCIAL. If you don't have a warm place to sleep and food to eat than your odds of being able to improve your situation are basically impossible.

    Greater Availability of Birth Control and Education About the Same:

    There is a reason that there are so many births happening out of wedlock in this community and you can bet it starts with people not using birth control or using it correctly. I would advocate for a greater availability of condoms and in particular the pill to just about anyone who wants it. No the pill doesn't stop the spread of STD's but I think it's a little more moment of total irresponsibility proof.

    It's damn hard to get your life together if you've got a kid and no support system at age 16. And that kid isn't going to have the best opportunities either. If we can significantly reduce the number of un-planned children being born I think we'll have taken a big step towards improving the quality of life in African American communities (immediately and 15 years down the road).

    Work With Community Leaders and Role Models

    The black community has a bit of an overabundance of role models preaching totally irresponsible behavior (violence, drug use, under age sex). Its no wonder that kids who lack good role models are so inclined towards these same behaviors.

    I think it might have an unexpectedly large effect on the black community of these role models could be convinced to change their tone, perhaps a bit less glorification of ****** behavior.
    Check out:

    Lupe Fiasco
    Brother Ali (though he's white)

    A couple of hip hop artists who are a bit more socially aware.

    I have a few more ideas but I'm tired of writing for now so I'll end this post.

    ...and they showed one of the 'good' retailers, Costco, the door.

    I believe Costco showed Apple the door.

    I think it's simpler than that - Apple wasn't ready to tip their full hand, just whet everyone's appetite.

    Hence us seeing an older, less complete build while the final version is still being polished.

    For those who are expressing outrage that perfect and bug-free applications aren't being delivered - you couldn't afford them. While it can be done, it can't be done for consumer (or even "Pro") level pricing.

    I don't about FCP but a lot of other PRO software has moved to yearly updates with maintenance subscription pricing to give users confidence.

    I know in CAD/BIM Land we tend to buy this years release for last years features. Not that there aren't new features that will be really useful it takes us about a year to workout how to use them effectively, build that in to office system that can be used consistently and start training people only 3-6 months is the application developers ironing out the bugs.

    To me Pro-software is no different to another member of staff, with all the same complications and relationship building energy before increased productivity comes a round.

    I can't agree with Jobs on this one.

    In this era of WTDs (wax-tramsitted diseases), there will be no sharing of my earbuds!

    But if the person has a player, Zune or anything, then they also have their OWN earphones :)

    I'd rather live in a white trash trailer park than in a black ghetto.
    Why is that? I would see both options as equally lousy.

    So far I have yet to see an official confirmation from a reputable (read "not-rumour") web site.

    The "confirmations" flying around all seem to be the rumour sites referencing each other.

    Until I see iLounge or MacWorld get an invitation I won't be getting my hopes up for an secret-Apple-ninja-attack event.

    Try to spread the word Chundles

    I've been trying to point this out for 3 days now and nobody seem to want to read it.


    In brief: Apple has confirmed plans to hold a special event on September 14, coinciding with rumors of an Apple movie store launch in that time period...

    That's not quite it. People were annoyed at the fact that the event was so hyped, not that it was somehow a "bad" thing.

    You mean people were annoyed that they allowed themselves to overhype it.

    Oh dang, these firmware updates make me nervous... so im going to wait and let others be the guinea pig.

    No way I'm going to do this update. This will not benefit me in any way whatsoever. At most, it'll ignore any "true" problem and not shut down when necessary. I won't install this update for like 6 months to see if this happens to others. Why should I install it when I don't even have this RSS issue, right? It'll just create a safety hole in my system.

    After applying the update, it seems like it's running cooler. I'm getting 53-54C now, when normally it's 58-59.

    Ah yes, let these types of posts begin. ;)

    So how do you work this Album Artist tag?

    What I would expect is to put the artists (separated by comas or something) in that tag, and then that song will show up under all those listed artists.

    The way it is now doesn't make any difference in organization/categorization of the archive.

    How do you guys use it?

    Why is this on the front page? It's like saying that WalMart is now selling a junk tablet. Except this article says that Toys R Us and Best Buy is now selling iPads. This isn't front page news.

    Sure it is. Best Buy is one of the largest retailers for electronics in US. That Apple can get product into this channel should out to rest some of the supply constraint issues for Apple, and that IS front page worthy news about the short term future of Apple, especially if you own stock in them.

    Perhaps future headphones will have 3 buds: left, right and public? :p

    Or (and here's a radical idea) why not put a small speaker on the player itself?

    Sep 4, 12:38 PM
    i may be wrong (and don't flame me if i am,) but it seems like the 6G ipod should make its way to the shelves instead of an updated 5G. the 5G has been out for almost a year , hasn't it?

    Mar 25, 12:20 PM
    Any chance of full change log? Haha guess that's too much to ask......
