Maccessability + Puk Return?
Finally, Apple Speaks to the Blind
You can talk to your Mac

The next major-ish release of Mac OSX could feature built-in assistive technologies such as screen readers, spoken items and QuickTime: Closed Captioning just to name a few.

Yeah so what! You say, you can get this software for Windows! You whine. Yeah well it ain’t free with your OS like the mac solution will be! Ha! It’s built into the OS, not some add on! Ha, again!

The You can talk to your Mac article also has an interesting rumour on the one button mouse front. The rumor is that Apple is working on a mouse with an iPod like circular touchwheel, damn nice. Hmmm… that could mean a circular mouse. Could this be the puk mouse revisited and actually good? Only time will tell.

    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.

    … ahhh, something to dream – will it be an ubermouse like a “kensington studio mouse” plus “touchwheel” looking like a “macmice mouse” plus “mousezoom” system preferences?
