Chives and Cheese

Sorry about the title, Jamie Oliver is on the telly and I've been far too busy this week having my mental paradigms shifted to have a go at a relevant title. Here's some news highlights:

  • It looks like the Fedora guys are getting their act together. As far as I'm concerned they're one release too late and seem to be completely ignoring power management, but RandR 1.2 seems very interesting indeed.
  • I kind of forgot about iWork, but rumors keep popping up about, er... an "iSheet". Doesn't look like it's going to be able to replace Excel for me, though.
  • Yes, I'm kind of curious about MacWorld this year. Can't say I like the hysteria preceding it, though, and wish someone would publish a scorecard of failed predictions afterwards (although that would have to be a very big scorecard, judging from the amount of junk I've had to filter from my feeds).
  • I find these reports of micro-USB disturbing, just when I was getting used to using the same vanilla USB cables for my phones and the rest of my gear.
  • There's this "Month of Apple Bugs" thing floating around. Man, that's so 2006. When will people realize that Mac OS X has bugs just like any other operating system? And, better still, that there's really no point in going on about it?
