10.3.7 Out

Apple today released Mac OS 10.3.7.  The update brings improvements to graphics card drivers, Firewire device compatibility and numerous other bug fixes.  Weighing in at a mere 17.1 MB this is a small update in comparison to older ones.  But I suspect it may be an important one for a lot of people who had some problems with 10.3.6.

Is there no level to which American TV will not stoop

This TV program apparently will pit a woman against 10 people, one of whom is her father.  She must guess which one, to win a $100,000 prize.  How crass can you be - the poor woman will be having a nervous breakdown by the end of it.



Non-tech post

So yesterday I mostly spent vomiting every half an hour (which was nice).  And today I have mostly spent in bed trying to recover.  It appears that I got some sort of nasty stomach flu… This is bad.  On the plus side, the staying in bed today means that I got quite a bit done on hat-core hopefully I can produce some slightly more readable code than the previous version.

Apple silences Harmony with latest iPod Software Update

Cnet news.com reports that Apple’s latest version of its iPod software no longer plays music using Real’s Harmony technology.

The move could render tunes purchased by many iPod owners unplayable on their music players. For the last four months, RealNetworks has marketed its music store as the only Apple rival compatible with the iPod, following the company’s discovery of a way to let its customers play their downloaded tunes on Apple’s MP3 player.

Read the article here. Good times, good times. Although it begs the question; should Apple open up? iTunes Music Store is not a huge revenue generator for Apple, so it wouldn’t hurt Apple too much to open up--and it may help sustain sales of the iPod. However, it must be done on Apple’s terms. “H4x0r” may indeed be an appropriate term to describe Real on this matter.
