Apple - Mac: Golden Apple
Apple I have bought an iMac. It wasn't an impulse purchase - I have wanted the 20 inch screen G5 ever since it was launched. However, I was still in two minds as to whether Apple would crawl out of its niche, so I was a little reticent in committing myself to a technology migration. Apple's recent set of quarterly financial results decided it for me.

Apple - Mac: Of Course Macs Are More Expensive... Aren't They?
Apple So, I went out to at least partially test this theory, and to do appropriate comparisons between Dell computers and Apple computers. I'm hardly the first one to take this challenge but I've decided it's time to stop talking and taking other peoples' word for it, and go get some concrete facts to put on (digital) paper.

Apple - Mac: Jobs rebuts eco-group claims at annual meeting
Apple Apple on Thursday held its annual shareholders meeting at the company’s headquarters in Cupertino, Calif.

Jobs also used the opportunity to take a swipe at Microsoft’s upcoming “Longhorn” operating system.

Apple to acquire another Vancouver company?
Apple gilgamesh.ca: From what I’ve heard in the tech community in Vancouver, Apple, who just bought Schemasoft, a Vancouver company, may currently be looking at another Vancouver company, a start-up that produces a video codec.

What’s the deal? Well, apparently, Apple wants to support H.264, the next generation video codec. But there’s a problem. The H.264 codec is so CPU-dependent that even a G5 is not fast/smart/beefy enough to be effective when viewing high definition video. ...So, the start-up Apple’s looking at might be able to help with a codec that compresses an awful lot without requiring as beefy a CPU.

Apple - Mac: An embedded view of the Mac Mini, Part 1
Apple A lot of early coverage of the Mac Mini compares it to desktop PCs, or even micro-ATX cases and other small PCs. What it looks like, though, is a high-end embedded development board. Comparing it to other embedded systems, you'll find that it's not much bigger, and it's smaller than some.

It has a broader array of connectors, a faster processor, support for a very large amount of memory, and comes with self-hosted development tools. In short, if you look at it as an embedded development platform, it's a competitive one.

Apple - Mac: Apple to boost standard Mac memory alongside Tiger debut
Apple By mid-year, Apple is likely to include a minimum of 512MB of RAM in each of the Macs it sells, double the amount of standard memory shipping in most of today's models.

Sources say Apple intends to complete the move by mid-year, around the same time it begins shipping its next-generation operating system, Mac OS X 10.4 "Tiger." Although Tiger will not require 512MB of RAM, insiders say the boost in memory spec will assure consumers a smoother experience running both Tiger and Apple’s iLife ’05 digital lifestyle software suite.

Apple - Mac: Rumor: Apple Developing mini laptop
Apple Remember Apple's eMate 300 from the early nineties? (nicknamed "Eat Me" by developers). It was a kind of Batman green and a fab little flat lap Newton. The PowerPage EU bureau has been beamed some details of a secret development team planning specifications for the release of a new mini laptop. (It goes well with their current mini theme. -Ed). Deep in the Apple cave these slim little mini pocketops are doing the rounds and getting a lot of great feedback.

Apple - Mac: Mac mini: VGA trauma?
Apple Angry Mac mini users are flocking to Apple’s support site to complain about problems with the display quality when hooking their minis up to their VGA monitors (which is sort of making it hard to follow Apple’s advice that you Bring Your Own Keyboard, Display, and Mouse).

Common complaints include low brightness and flat-out non-functionality. The official response from Apple thus far has been a cool “your monitor is incompatible” approach.

Apple - Mac: Is Apple The New Microsoft?
Apple It's ironic that a company as innovative as Apple Computer could have such a regressive view of the changing world of American media. The company, led by Chief Executive Steve Jobs, won a round in its quest to force three Apple -enthusiast Web sites to disclose their sources on articles they published regarding unannounced Apple products. In court filings the company argued that the Web sites were not protected by free speech because they are not legitimate members of the press.

Apple - Mac: Apple's silence on the Cell processor Irks author
Apple A recent PC online news site ran an article that provided me with … a good laugh and some useful quotes—so not all was lost. I respect the work from the PC side of the aisle for the most part and most definitely visit their sites on a daily basis for some intelligent reports. That being said, let’s take a look at this particular article’s assessment of whether or not there is a Cell processor in Apple’s future.

Apple - Mac: Gen 5 iPod Battery to last 50+ hours, details on Gen 5 multimedia iPod
Apple The name Portal Player probably doesn’t mean that much to you, but what if we said it’s the company responsible for manufacturing the battery in the iPod, iPod photo and iPod mini? Still not particularly exciting. What if we then told you that Portal Player is just putting the finishing touches on its next battery that, according to their press release at least, has three times the battery life of its existing model? Now we’ve got your attention!

Mobile Mag has some additional details on what will be the next generation iPod will feature. It looks like the next gen (generation 5) iPod will end up being a multimedia powerhouse.

Apple - Mac: Shopping for an inexpensive PC? Make it a Mac Mini. You won't regret it.
Apple Hardly a week goes by that I don't get asked the same question at least once or twice: "I need a computer, but don't want to spend a lot of money. What do you recommend?"

Until a few weeks ago, my pat answer was to send those folks clicking through the Dell Web site, looking for the basic Inspiron series of PCs. Not any more. Not since one of Apple's Mac Minis took up residence on my desktop.

Apple - Mac: Crushed in the Apple Press
Apple Having seen the utter mayhem in the store Saturday -- indeed, I considered faking a seizure in order to steal one of the busy salespeople from other customers -- I would probably swing toward the latter.

After having plied my sales guy (luckily, no underhanded scheming was necessary; I merely seized the opportunity when I noticed he had just emerged from the back room, miraculously without an entourage of customers) with computer-related questions, I asked him whether all the people were buying, or whether most of them were just looking.
