Dog tired. Too much e-mail and RSS items to go through, so I'll stick to bullets:
- Microsoft does something right in Longhorn and drops the silly "My" prefix in folder names. The fact that it's way more usable without that dumb naming (and that it's been the Mac OS X way since whenever) is, of course, pure coincidence. I cannot even begin to enumerate the times when that idiotic "My" and the extra space got in the way of keeping things organized (find as you type, etc.).
- To compensate, they've been hashing their IP TV strategy - although they're showing mostly the same slides as four years ago, but with upgraded icons.
- Via 43 Folders, a great joint demo movie for Quicksilver and Backpack. And that's just a very simple example of how far you can take Quicksilver
- The Sidekick II is launched in Germany. I would personally have picked a hipper youth market, but hey, that's their choice.
- You call 12.4 million subscribers worldwide a success? By 2010? Heck, that's nearly one million shy of the amount of Portuguese SIM cards. I, for one, call it a colossal failure for WiMax, no matter what the market segment (via Daily Wireless).
- Still, WiMax looks like a much more sensible reason for the recent rumors of talks between Apple and Intel.
- VoIP stuff to check again later: Phlink, and the new Bonjour/Rendezvous support in Asterisk for Mac OS X.
- More Quartz Composer goodies - this I got to see (and dissect) in my own time...
