I was in the Apple Store today and just needed some retail therapy. I’ve been on a hardware kick for the past three months acquiring a 30GB iPod, a massive flat panel for home, and, now, and 15″ Powerbook. It’s been quite a run. Problem is, now when I walk into the store, my cash… More
For you visual ascetic types, here is Jaguar sitting next to Longhorn.
There are lots of Macs in my office and everyone is furiously downloading iTunes 4 to check out the new software as well as the music store. I’ve only tinkered with the store briefly… what has been fascinating is watching the playlists of co-workers appear in my shared music folder. Wow. Until this morning, I… More
