The Cult Of Mac
Three new "Get A Mac" ads have arisen. They stay true to the previous six in the style and actors used and are now viewable on TV and on-line. The three new ads are dubbed "Out of the Box" (for no-hassle use on Day 1), "Touche" (touting Boot Camp), and "Work vs. Home" (for easy creation of creative projects about life). Personally, I think Touche is lacking, but Out of The Box is very well done.
Apple has been fined $100,000 dollars by the state of Washington for failing to register as a service provider from 2000-2004. Because of this, AppleCare was, for a time, unavailable in Washington State. Apple has since registered and is able to give AppleCare once more to Washington State customers.
This is an interesting widget that lets you view images from space on-demand from robots. I'm unsure if these robots are real or fictional... but the images look pretty good.
