The Cult Of Mac
Apple has unveiled it's replacment for the eMac, the last CRT-using Apple machine. The replacment is a special configuration of the 17" iMac we already know. This version comes with 1.83 Intel Core Duo, the iSight, iLife '06, a combo drive, 512MB of RAM (upgradable to 2gigs), and a HD of 160gigs. As far as the software goes, there is virtually no difference between the average consumer's iMac and the edu-iMac. It is available immediatly in Apple's Education Store.
Safari's Market Share has boomed by 75% to reach 3.19% market share world-wide. Safari still holds the number three spot of most-used browsers. Most are saying this is due to programs such as Boot Camp and Parralels, drawing more to the Mac Platform.
Design filings made by Apple suggest that they could abandon the Click Wheel in future iPod designs. A few of the more interesting designs feature designs focused on the iPod nano's enclosure. One of these strongly resembles that of a phone, the other has what appears to be a cross on it. It's speculated that this cross could be some kind of game controller. There were four other designs featuring the nano, that featured a trackpad similar to that on a Macbook, a vertical scrolling strip, and two oblong controls. There are also designs that show nothing at all in place of the Click Wheel, strengthening the rumor of voice-commands on future iPods. Are any of these iPods we'll see? Only time will tell...
Lastly, I don't know if any of you know of the band, but recently, Rascal Flatts released thier 4th album, Me And My Gang. The album is the 3rd album from Rascal Flatt's to hit the top of the all-genre list on Billboard. It is also on iTunes with a digital booklet and is at a special price of $7.99 for 13 tracks.
