Another Apple bashing article
Realworldtech has written an article on "Apple's Power failure".Indirectly linked at from Arstechnica I expected a serious and unbiased article, however I soon found it to be another bad example of journalistic hot-bloodedness. While these guys certainly point out a few sad but true facts about the Mac and the PowerPC, the way the bring it to us readers is disgusting to say the least. I know it can be hard to stay objective at times, but please, as a probably renouned PC tech site, you should really be able to smile at Apple's ads, and not have to start bitching about their claims, like an average John Doe PC user would. This article reminded me heavily of the flame debates I found in the forums of Sharkyextreme and therefore honestly disappointed me. Writing such an article, one should not hammer on the idea that "Apple has a stubbornly loyal userbase". In the end I can only suggest everyone to go read the article and make up your own opinion and maybe think of it next time you write something about PCs - and do better.
xlr8yourmac thinks tomorrow may be the day of an official MS/Bungie announcement (well, everybody does) and has dug up some more Apple/nVidia rumors. There still seem to be sites out there thinking there's some deal going on. Other bits concern a firmware update for the Rio MP3 player and other updates.
Intel mobile roadmap
the register has the plans for Intels mobile CPU's that will be coming out in the next few months. They're "Speedstep", that means in battery mode they run considerably slower than on the line, but 800-9XXMHz seems like trouble for Apple in its last stronghold.
Optical storage explained
FiringSquad again has one of their famous tech articles, this time explaining how optical storgae works. A good read.
3Dhardware.net has a sniplet on the Geforce 2 MX (the low cost version) "announcement", where the word "Apple" suddenly shows up under the targeted markets.
