xlr8yourmac has some good news for all Radeon owners, for both AGP and PCI versions. ATI is apparently working hard on fixing the issues that some users experienced, most certainly including the bug in Quake 3. Looks like the new competition good them the kick in the behind they needed.
the register has some interesting new rumors about a new iMac and iBook as well as some other new stuff around Apple's latest developments (in software). Check it out, it's short.
Microsoft is afraid of Germans
the register notes that Microsoft may want to ship a special version of their upcoming OS "Whistler" in Germany, one without their new copy protection thingie that binds each copy of Whistler to only one machine, making pirating "impossible" (lol). It seems that Microsoft is afraid to lose German customers, as Germany has always been a place where alternative OSs were strong. Their example of Linux being strong in Germany is very true btw. Pirating rates are extremely high there too, btw.
FiringSquad is one of the first PC sites to regulary inform itself about the ongoings in the Mac market. So they sent a guy to MWSF and told him to look around. Aside from interviews with ATI and nVidia, they also took a look at the new Macs. Caution, wet floor:)
Microsoft about Apple, Office
MacWEEK has an interview with a rep. from Microsoft, talking about Microsoft's plans for the Mac, what they think of the Mac etc... Far less biased then the FryingSquad article (oops, typo).
Apple announcements today
MacWEEK expects Apple to announce their first losses for Q1 in quite a while. However, the announcements and products of MWSF probably reduce the probability of losses for Q2 to a minimum. There will be a web cast of the announcements.
Afraid of OS X?
Slashdot keeps getting messages from readers who ask whether Mac OS X might be endangering Linux as a business OS or not. Might be, but not until there is an Intel version, I think. (Which I still think would be a bad idea)
MOSR has new rumors about the iMacs and iBooks that are said to be coming up (as noted above), claims that Mac OS X is planned to support the instant-on feature that all UMA-1 and 2 Macs support (boot in 2-8 seconds) and then has some answers to a question about MP G4e upgrades. As always, worth a read.
