hmm - looks interesting - gonna have to read up a bit more bout this…

You might want to take a look at what Gizmodo has to say about it first…


hee hee - thats what i found too… sneaky b*stards eh?


i think thats just how reporters are during an uproar. doing and saying anything they want. misconstruing all arguments by answering the arguments themselves. netwarfare 101’s firststep is always FUD. in a closed system the only way to advance is to kick bighole in the box.
no one really has written unbiased information about this yet.

now that i have seen the 187 different stories linked to google news.
while i can bet the large majority all, use apple computers.
you know they are tanked on caffeine!

i hope these guys are for real, i like seeing apple get messed with.
and i like even more the possibility of someone else doing all the dirty work. :D

could try it if you don’t take your computerwork seriously

if you do… just use mac

must say. having all three major systems: linux,windows & osx on 1 box sounds good, but since there are no ways of getting updates it seems this has gotten more interesting.
