iSync Madness

Well, iSync in 10.4.1 still sucks big time. Not only does it refuse to sync properly (doesn't sync any Bookmarks for me), but it also displays totally insane Error dialogs:

Translated into English, this dialog would be:
No Problems
Do you want to review and correct this problems now?

To switch or add

Daring Fireball: Bombs Away


I've seen some interpret this as petulance or spite -- that this switch is just Jobs picking up his ball and leaving for another playground because he feels IBM has embarrassed him. That interpretation is foolish. I really think Jobs was just being honest, or at least as honest as he could be in a public statement.

childish AppleNow i think if he would have realy been honest, then whole thing would have been rephrazed from "We're switching to Intel" to "We're now adding Intel to our Processor Portfolio". This would have left all doors wide open and with the universal binary, we'd all have the choice to use whatever processor we'd want.

Seeing that this didn't happen, leaves a sour taste of his Steveness once more being pissed off by someone and being stubborn and walking away in a huff.

Apple to switch to intel?

Is Apple suddenly believing the Megahertz Myth themselves or what? I mean - i consider myself a "Poweruser" - i am using a dual 1.8Ghz G5 in the Office and i tell you, this thing is fast enough for all my tasks. I would even go so far to say it will be fast enough for 90% of the Mac users out there. And this 1.8Ghz G5 isn't available anymore anyway as we're now at 2.8Ghz already.

So what the fu__ is going on here? I believe as long as IBM can supply sufficient numbers of processors, we're just fine. We don't necessarily need no stinking 4Ghz or such. So is Apple just out for World domination by trying to get OS X onto every X86 out there. That would be a real silly idea. Or do i just not get it?
