Friday Apple Stuff

Ahh. It’s Friday.

Bono Moves to Preempt Thieves

Yep, U2’s new album Vertigo, due out in November, was stolen at a photo shoot. The guys are gonna release it to the iTunes music stores if it turns up online elsewhere, like on file-sharing networks. And I’m guessing if they can find it online too. Hmm…

Apple has taken the G4 powermacs off the web store. Yeah you can still check out their specs and whathave you, but click on the buy now graphic. I defy you to purchase one on this site, you just can’t. This means that work will now be purchasing me a G5 instead! (insert numerous sarcastic damnings of all sorts).

Next week will go down in history as the only one where I actually want to go to work. This one was the one I least wanted to go back to work as I spent the previous week doing life drawing and painting classes at The Rocks.

And finally, checkout how mac fans are showing their love ‘n’ support for Steve Jobs.

How many other CEOs of other huge techy companies spark such a public response?

    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.

    There is no reason for the album to be at the photoshoot, it’s nothing more than hype and a chance to take a swipe at P2P
