Bloggers Beware

This is reasonably fucked.

Did you read the article? If not basically this guy got sacked by Microsoft because of this blog entry entitled Even Microsoft wants G5s. The article contains a happy snap of some G5s being unloaded from a truck. That’s right, just some computer boxes in a truck, no people, no MS references in sight, accompanied by some text about someone getting new toys at Microsoft. Microsoft didn’t like this, or the offer to remove the post and gave him the boot.
I think this quote says it all really:

Good. That means that as it’s your site on your own server, you have the right to say anything you want. Unfortunately, Microsoft has the right to decide that because of what you said, you’re no longer welcome on the Microsoft campus.

Yes indeed, bloggers beware especially if you work for Microsoft or Macrosuck.

    Adobe Not Releasing Universal Binaries Of Current Software

    Adobe have posted this question and answer PDF regarding Adobe products running on the new Intel-Based Macs. Looks like the Photoshop TV guys were right, a Universal Binary will not be available for CS2, Adobe will instead focus on making CS3 compatible with both Intel-Based Macs and the current Macs. CS3 could be available in the next 18 - 24 months if you look at Adobe's rack record for major releases.

    The Dreadful Embarrassment, Now In Purple!

    Like most creatives who prefer working on Apples, I've been hanging out for some sort of concrete evidnece that the Adobe CS2 suite will run well/much better on the new Intel-based Macs under the Rosetta emulator, or that Adobe will release a Universal Binary update. Well I need a new mac within the next week, and decided to just go ahead and place an order for a 17-inch PowerBook any ways. I've also managed to find a two-tone purple laptop bag over at the Crumpler site named, The Dreadful Embarrassment.
