Apple - Mac: The Next Platform War: Media-Computing; Apple And Sony Vs. Microsoft
The Mac media-computing platform could be a strong ally of Sony's in the next battle of the gaming war: between Sony's PlayStation 3 and Microsoft's Xbox 360. We are less than a year away from the next phase of battle to begin, for both the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360 are rumored to be out by the end of this year.

While the underdog appears to be Microsoft, it is an illusion, because Microsoft has something Sony does not, which is software. The key to Microsoft's plans has never been hardware, it has always been software. Windows is to provide the OS, support the games, supply the methods to transfer music, files, or whatever else; without Windows, the Xbox 360 is nothing.

Apple - Mac: Apple soars on Cell chip reports
Apple Meanwhile, we have reported previously on Apple's interest in using the Cell processor to power future machines. Apple's share price rose yesterday, amid speculation that it is soon to announce a deal with Sony/IBM/Toshiba to use the chip.

It's also possible that the deal will lead to Sony tapping in to Apple's proprietary formats to strengthen its hand against Microsoft in the media market, with the PS3 possibly offering an iTunes-style store for music and movie downloads.

Apple - Mac: Speculatively Scandalous: Merrill Lynch, Kelly McNeill, Robert Cringely; Neo and Next Wave
Thoughts After seeing AppleInsider's report, "Merrill Lynch speculates on potential Sony-Apple partnership," I was blown away. I was not blown away by what Steven Milunovich analyst for Merrill Lynch said or by what people have attributed to Robert Cringely of PBS, I was blown away because Milunovich's report mimics that of Kelly McNeill's editorial, "Apple/Sony DV Collaboration = HD Movie Download Store," published January 18, 2005.

Apple - Mac: Apple Mac Mini: Smaller, More Stylish - and Cheaper than a PC?
Apple The concept is reminiscent of the Bauhaus style of the '20s - simple shape, compact exterior, and a certain coolness of design. And, above all, no frills. However, the Mac mini's minimalist appearance belies the very high level of functionality it offers.

The little cube-shaped device could just as well be an object from the higher-end HiFi world. Yet the case, which is barely larger than a 20-disc DVD holder, houses a full-fledged computer, complete with drives and modern interfaces.

Apple - Mac: Apple seeks switcher stories
Thoughts Apple is once again appealing for tales from PC users who have recently switched to Mac. The company asks: "What made you get a Mac instead of a PC. Did you fall in love with your iPod and then buy a Mac? Were you looking for a computer that's more stable and secure than your old PC?"

Other questions include: "What’s it feel like to go from Windows to Mac OS X? What do you use your Mac for – managing your music, editing photos, creating movies, recording your own songs? What can you do on your Mac that you couldn’t do on a PC?"

Apple - Mac: Creative CEO: Apple will Lose to Microsoft
Music or Audio With all due respect to Mr. Sim, he seems to be setting up for another losing battle against the iPod. In this spin section we've previously noted that Mr. Sim doesn't get why he lost the first battle: Mr. Sim believes he lost to Steve Jobs' "cult of personality" and the iPod's more successful branding effort. We believe, however, that he lost because of the iPod's seamless integration with iTunes. Clearly, Mr. Sim still has not learned that lesson.

Apple - Mac: Apple's 'Xstation' - Market, Uses, Technology and Details
Apple Today's "workstation" market is a relatively tiny slice of the overall non-server computer market, with annual workstation shipments just north of 1 million units.

However, the market is considered profitable and a Gartner study shows worldwide workstation shipments will grow at an annual rate of 2.3 percent from 2003 to 2007.
