    All I can say is this...

    I would buy a red iPod regardless of if the money went to a good cause. I think red would look sexy as ****.

    I think you mean 4% of 142 million $.....

    Samsung's worldwide turnover was only 138.4 billion for 2010. So I'm guessing Apple buys about $6 billion.

    I was thinking the same thing... the numbers didn't make sense.

    I don't usually speculate, but I find it interesting "Showtime" is capitalized. Could the downloads be part of some partnership with the cable channel? Just wild speculation on my part.


    I doubt it, but you never know. "Showtime" as a phrase has been around a lot longer than the cable channel. But it definitely does emphasize this event as one that's centered around movies.

    Didn't you hear! The new Apple phone is powered by the newly designed low-power embedded G5 chip.

    G5 power phones next Tuesday! Woo Hoo!:D :D :D :eek: :confused:

    And only 6 inches thick :eek: :p :D

    Don't do it Apple!

    Seriously, apps like trapster have saved my ass from the doughnut eating porkers in my area (not DUI, rather speeding). Seriously don't give into the government, they just want the police to be able to slowly rape more and more of our rights and freedoms (including my right to do 75 on a empty back road if I want to).

    Anyone else notice that Elgato have now pulled their Eyehome media streaming device without a replacement? Anything to do with rumors of a rival device from Apple?

    I'd be overjoyed if Apple has "bought out" the EyeHome from Elgato and gives it the polish and compatibility only Apple could do. I've used EyeHome for over 2 years and it's at best "OK" as a media hub. The box itself is tacky (make it look like the mini or a stereo component...and give it an optical drive), the on-screen interface is pretty kludgy (replace it with Front Row), protected media cannot play (of course Apple can fix that), MP4 support/quality is inconsistent and H.264 support completely absent (again Apple can fix that).

    I've always seen EyeHome as a good try by a 3rd party, but really needing some spit and shine that only Apple could provide. I bet the quiet disappearance of this product from Elgato will indeed prove itself to be the hardware analogy to SoundJam-->iTunes. The new Apple "EyeHome" (iHome??? hmmm...already taken...iPod Home?? Front Row Media Center??) should be a very stripped-down mac mini that boots up to Front Row with the addition of a "Settings" menu, and access to purchasing music and/or movies which end up in the iTunes library of a connected computer.

    I was planning to buy a mini to replace my EyeHome as soon as it had Front Row available, but then the price went up by $100...simply not worth buying a whole computer for this use. Sell a device like this for $200 and you've got me!:D

    Canada is sounding awfully good to me right now.

    Taxes, cell phone fees, gas and car prices are higher here. Pay for professional jobs also seems relatively lower compared to the US.

    As the MacBook Pro is wider, it will get very light magnets at either end of the displays too, to hold it neatly shut.

    one of the best predictions i have heard to date...

    I'd say a refresh of the Mac Mini and/or iMac might happen. Why would they call both of the existing models 'early 2006' (esp. the mini) in this page.

    Because that's when they were released.

    You're talking about some hardcore Apple supporters, well known in the community, jumping ship. It ain't a good sign.

    It just says they are jumping ship from the iPhone... For some reason, 3 people jumping ship don't really stir the pot for me. For some reason I have a feeling there will be many behind them to take their place.

    The new Mac Pro has finally achieved acoustic running levels to make it perfect
    for audio recording solutions.
    It will be interesting to see how quiet the new Merom iMacs run.

    We've read countless complaint threads over the years about noise issues.

    This is why I think Apple will pass on some of these processors to maintain
    the new standards they have achieved.

    It will be interesting to see how the 65nm back to back mirrored quad chips perform compared to the 45 nm chipsets.

    For now, I think the priority is still to get heat down in the notebooks and to improve battery life.

    seems to me that lots of people complaining about the data on mobile phone issue are overlooking something. When network capacity allowed them to, networks gave unlimited data - then we all got data hungry, killing capacity and forcing limits. At some point soon (probably with 4G) the networks won't have a capacity issue with increased levels. They probably won't go back to true unlimited - they are businesses after all - but we could be looking at broadband rates similar to landline, maybe �15/month for 100GB or so. As and when that kicks in, having a media cloud will be a huge blessing. Until then, wifi users and home users will still benefit.

    3G just doesn't have anywhere near the massive capacity 4G can be optimised to give.

    See the roll eyes after his post, I think he was being sarcastic.

    While I agree with not listening to corporate run media, you are severely misguided if you believe the BBC is quality journalism.

    Watch John Pilgers "The war you don't see" to see just how they think they should report what world leaders say. It's shocking.

    John Pilgers? Does he reside in the US? Does he have a website?

    Creative's stock up 30% in after-hours trading. The $100 million is a drop in the bucket for Apple, but it will certainly help Creative...

    Yeah, but at least Apple doesn't have to worry about any more lawsuits

    Don't pretend you actually care about 'open'. To you, 'open' simply means 'free'. I'm going to make a stab in the dark and make the logical assumption that all your '720p and 1080p media' is torrented videos. Please, correct me if I'm wrong

    To me, it just sounds like yet another person wanting everything but willing to pay nothing. What a sustainable model that is...

    Nah, I really don't care about open. No, I do not Torrent.
    I just want the technology available without having to buy more junk. I prefer the "one piece of hardware that does it all" approach. :p

    A privilege checking issue existed in the i386_set_ldt system call's handling of call gates. A local user may be able to execute arbitrary code with system privileges. This issue is addressed by disallowing creation of call gate entries via i386_set_ldt().

    Generating a successful malware from that list of vulnerabilities has two requirements:

    1) A remote arbitrary code execution vulnerability has to be linked to a local privilege escalation vulnerability.

    2) Those vulnerabilities that can be linked together must both be exploitable. Not all vulnerabilities are exploitable.

    The only local privilege escalation vulnerability in that update is shown above. To be linked to a remote vulnerability to create a successful malware requires the following:

    1) The call function must be used by a process that also has an remote vulnerability so that the vulns can be linked together to install a payload, such as rootkit. It is likely that not all processes will use that call function. Also, that call function is for 32-bit processes and most client side software in Mac OS X that may contain a remote exploit are 64-bit processes.

    2) The two vulnerabilities have to be reliably exploitable once linked together as well as being reliably exploitable independently so that they can actually be linked together. Again, not all vulnerabilities are exploitable.

    Linking together remote and local exploits is more difficult in Mac OS X than Windows. This is because Windows has far more local privilege escalation exploits than Mac OS X. Another factor is that the different levels of Windows are less insulated from each other than the different levels of Mac OS X. A common method to achieve privilege escalation in Windows is by manipulating registry values. -> outlines how to exploit win32k.sys vulnerabilities by manipulating registry values. -> list of win32k.sys vulnerabilities.

    May be Apple also figured if they settle now, may be Creative could use this precedence to sue Microsoft and other competitors over their UI and make them pay for licenses too.

    That would put a nice hit on the smaller competitors. Nice move, Apple!

    They'll change the key and force a firmware update on any airport express user who wants to update itunes.

    That would break all properly licensed third party hardware.

    sad, as the app store is 99% junk.

    You�re right there. And what�s sad is Apple is chasing off (in this case) one of its best developers. Rogue Amoeba makes great software, and comes highly recommended from many people in the Mac community � AirFoil, Audio Hijack Pro, Fission, etc.

    You know what�s interesting is while browsing around with my iDisk app on the iPhone, I noticed the iDisk app displays Adobe�s Photoshop icon for PSD files. I wonder if Adobe gave Apple explicit permission to use their Photoshop file icon in the iDisk app?

    I'm simultaneously amused and saddened by the number of people who believe that drunk driving is a constitutionally protected right.
    Hope you never have to see the results of the 'patriots' who would have a use for this and then kill innocent people.
    This app enables murder. Rationalize all you want.

    Pretty sure nobody came close to saying anything of the sort, so it's all good.

    I'm not sure that this is an entirely novel thought, but I thought I would test my psychic abilities a little.

    The mac mini seems like the target for movies here, not iPods. There's a lot of talk about Airport express and how that might be the killer hardware, but there's more to it than that. Apple is competing against rental stores and netflix to watch movies. No one is just going to want to watch movies on an iPod, they are going to want it on they're TV. So why not have a network box that saves and plays the movies that is attatched to your TV? The mini is already positioned to do exactly that. No keyboard or monitor, maybe just a remote to run Front Row.

    Download the movie to the mini, watch it on TV at your convenience. Mac video on demand. Start doing that with TV shows and all of a sudden, Tivo has got a serious contender, too.

    The hard bit will be having full-quality movies sent to your home, VOD style.

    The new iPod is a phone. There may be a video ipod, but I doubt that it's a main target for the movies.

    I have this wonderful feeling that it'll be even cooler than this, but this is what I am expecting.

    Dr. Z.

    I like the sound of that!! as for downloading the movies, the bittorrent protocol is almost perfect, but maybe a customized apple algorithm, because the beauty of services such as sky box office (no ones mentioned this so far) is you only have to wait 15 - 30 mins max for your film.

    realistically, a 6gb or heaven help us 12gb download will take absolutely ages, even if it maxes out your connection. so streaming the media would perhaps be the way forward, although i dont know enough about the bittorrent protocol to fully understand the effects of prioritizing consecutive pieces.

    I really hope to see 512 mb vram on the base 21.5, but that will probably never happen.

    Maybe in 5 years :rolleyes:
