BBC: "A previously unknown piece by German maestro JS Bach is found among papers from a Weimar library." [Scripting News]

Marc's Voice - Dave Nagel - strike three.

Some of us are old to remember these Dave Nagel speeches at Apple in the early 90's. My god - what arrogance, what vision, what panache, what Apple. Nagel was Apple in all it's glory. NOT.

What it didn't know was the whole house of cards was about to fall.
After Nagel left being CTO of Apple - he went to AT&T - where he did - gee I'm just not sure WHAT he did there - but I can just about guarentee you that he had something to do with the demise of that great company.

Then he went to Palm and helped create PalmOne. Ooooooooooopps.

[ PubSub: Apple ]
Readers of this blog are familiar with this character, but what he really helped create is PalmSource... The clientless company.

Editors' Notes: The speed's the thing. Jim Dalrymple does’t care who makes the chips that power Macs. He just wants the fastest computer possible. [Macworld]
People that do not care what processor is in their machines tend to say things like this: "I must admit that I[base ']m growing tired of listening to the reasons why a PowerPC chip is better, technically, than Intel or AMD." I would say that if you get tired of hearing technical reasons it is about time you got out of writing about technology...

To all the people that on Monday decided that Intel has the best processors ever and that are now signing praises to Opteron, Xeon, Pentium, etc. May you care to comment on this page still very much present on Apple's website?

Hell freezes over; it must've been the liquid cooling: Hannibal on the Apple-to-Intel transition.

It's been a couple of days since the big announcements, and now that the news has sunk in, questions are arising like "why Intel over AMD?" and "which Intel CPUs will Apple be using?" In this article, Ars CPU expert Jon "Hannibal" Stokes looks at Intel's road map and draws some conclusions as to where Intel's CPUs fit into Apple's product line.

The impact of the loss of PowerPC to Apple as a brand and as a company is easy to misjudge if one is thinking solely in terms of the average computer user. The Mac's "RISC CPU" meant something to a small but very important fraction of the Mac user base. These people were on fire about PowerPC vs. x86, RISC vs. CISC, and the platform wars in general. They cared about things like elegance and orthogonality, and when they used Apple hardware they felt "geeky." And the presence of PPC, regardless of its actual contribution to the cold hard benchmark numbers, lent to these vocal and highly enthusiastic Apple users the sense that they were members of an exclusive club of people "in the know," whose technical tastes were more refined and who were just plan smarter than the average "PC weenie."
