    Just what can Target say? "If you allow Apple do do something that might cut into out DVD sales we will intentionally sell fewer DVD" Kind of like holding a gun to your head threatening to shoot.

    Well, the idea being that if Wal-mart (reported to be selling 40% of all DVDs in the US) and Target suddenly pull out of the DVD business, that would be a 40+% hit in DVD revenue, to which I don't think Apple could possibly pick up, nor would all those people go to Apple.

    Now you say that people will just shop elsewhere, but that isn't going to be true either. Many people buy DVDs on either impulse or because they are cheap. Not everyone who would buy a DVD at Wal-Mart will suddenly be willing to another shop and pay $5 more.

    Now, Wal-Mart and Target won't pull everything at once, so I'm not sure exactly what they could do. But anything they do WILL be felt by the movie industry in the short run at least.

    And to those that say Apple won't put a dent in retail sales, you're wrong :)
    Maybe not this month, maybe not this year. But in a 100 years we will be downloading all our entertainment, which means that sometime between now and then SOMEONE is going to take over that distribution. If Wal-Mart is in no position to make that move to online, than they have to stall those that are as much as possible until they are able to get in the game.

    btw- how can Wal-mart make this claim about iTunes robbing retail when they themselves have an online music store. I'm not sure why a parallel can't be drawn between music and movies...

    The difference here is Samsung settled. With $1billion at stake, Apple will likely fight this to the end. And with countersuits on the line, this will get ugly.

    For a billion apple could just go out and buy the company. :rolleyes:

    Considering they are today at 3.43 per share just buy them out and throw out the executive.

    Of course, there's probably a huge difference in hardware costs, but hey, We're Number 3, We're Number 3, We're Number 3!
    Well, the price differential is not inconsiderable. Based on the www.cpuscorecard.com website, I just spec'ed out a Dell computer with a 2.4 GHz Pentium 4 (closest processor to the dual 1.25 Ghz Powermac) and compared it to a similarly outfitted Powermac from the Applestore:

    � Power Mac G4 Dual 1.25GHz w/167MHz system bus
    � 1GB PC2700 DDR SDRAM - 2 DIMMs
    � 120GB Ultra ATA drive
    � Optical 1 - Apple SuperDrive
    � Optical 2 - None
    � NVIDIA GeForce4 Titanium dual-display w/128MB DDR
    � 56K internal modem
    � Apple Pro Speakers
    � Apple Pro Keyboard - U.S. English
    � Mac OS - U.S. English

    Pentium� 4 Processor at 2.40GHz with 533MHz system bus/ 512K L2 Cache D8224B
    Memory: 1GB PC800 RDRAM(4x256M modules)
    Keyboard: Dell� Quietkey� Keyboard
    Video Card: New 64MB DDR NVIDIA GeForce4� Ti 4200 Graphics Card with TV Out and DVI
    Hard Drive: 120GB 7200RPM Hard Drive with DataBurst Cache�
    Floppy Drive: 3.5 in Floppy Drive
    Operating System: Microsoft� Windows� XP Professional
    Mouse: Dell� 2-button scroll mouse
    Broadband Ready/ Ethernet Network Card: Intel� Pro 100 M PCI Ethernet Network Card
    Modem: 56K PCI Telephony Modem
    CD or DVD Drive: New DVD+RW/+R Drive with CD-RW
    Sound Card: Sound Blaster Live! Digital Sound Card
    Speakers: New Harman Kardon� HK-206 Speakers
    Productivity Software: Microsoft� Office XP Small Business
    Virus Protection: Norton AntiVirus� 90-day introductory offer
    Digital Photography: Dell Picture Studio, Image Expert Standard
    Limited Warranty, Services and Support Options: 3 Year Limited Warranty plus 3 Year On-site Service
    Internet Access Service: 6 Months AOL,Featuring the Netbusiness Service for Small Business
    Video Editing: Premium Dell Movie Studio Bundle
    Dual Monitor Support: DVI-VGA Adapter to connect 2 CRT Monitors to Ti4600 or Ti4200 Video Card

    I tried to spec these two machines as close to each other as possible, even adding on some Dell software to account for the iApps in Jaguar, and the price differential is still over $1300. Granted, currently you can get Indesign for free, but that's a $800 value at best, and I didn't factor in the cost of an office suite for the Powermac.

    Please let me know if I've missed anything in matching specs. I still am planning on making the switch from Windows to Mac, but I also am aware of the price differential. It's not enough of a difference to deter me, but it is probably asking a bit much to expect everyone considering the purchase of a Mac to ignore the price factor, especially considering the fuss raised when Apple decided to charge $8 a month for .Mac services.

    Oh, I forgot. Since apple turned green they are shredded and made into iPhone boxes.

    Sad that she died so young. I thought she handled her battle with cancer and her husband's affair with grace and dignity.

    Well said.

    OK, now that we'll have iPod integration on flights from major airlines... And there's talk of broadband access in-flight at some point in the near future. Hmmm... I can see it now. Steve's plan is to have the iPod integration in place so that the next time I'm on a 14 hour flight, I have nothing to do but play with my iPod and shop the iTunes store. ...World domination, one small step at a time.

    There is no application for iPhone in the Japanese trademark database.

    Apple failed to use the name "Airport" in japan, so they changed to "Airmac" at last. Even if somebody took the name already, its nothing to affect the product release but only to change the name and launch.

    Thanks, but I don't need to grow up. Perhaps you should try accepting other people's opinions without resorting to insults - a much more significant indicator of maturity (unless you're actually asking me to grow older faster?)

    There is absolutely zero logic to the rest of your post either. How has this helped the music industry exactly? As I have said all along, the UK chart is a glorified popularity contest. The most popular record, at the time, wins. People don't just buy the xfactor winners single because of the name - they buy it because they like it (and it's usually more than a few thousand btw). Whether you, or I, agree with that is irrelevant. It is fact. There has also been no significant reduction in music piracy as a result of this campaign.

    There has been no 'rebellion'. All the campaign has done is increased the amount of money Sony Music Entertainment have taken in this Christmas (both of the Artists are attributed to Sony). This goes back to my original point about the whole thing being meaningless (unless of course the aim was to simply make more money for Sony). There will still be the xfactor next year, and the winner will still sell a barrowload of records.

    I have been on the group on Facebook a few times, and many people have stated this is the 1st time they've downloaded a song legally. I know it isn't going to stop piracy, but it is definitely a step in the right direction. And you can't say there has been no reduction in piracy yet- its only been 1 day. If it gets just a handful of people to pay for songs rather than pirate them, then at least its done some good.

    And how is the whole thing meaningless? At the end of the day, the chap who made the group didn't know Rage and Joe were both with Sony. He didn't know that he'd be (slightly) benefitting Cowell by choosing Rage. There was an interview on the BBC where he spoke about this, and he didn't care. All he wanted was a different single at the number 1 spot this year, and all everyone else who joined the group wanted was a different single at number 1. Thankfully Rage won.

    And it doesn't matter if people don't like the song, I for one would have bought almost anything just to keep X Factoe from being number 1.

    Yes, where's the MacBook Pro with integrated toaster?

    Quite why people keep expecting announcements of upgraded laptops at a photography conference is beyond me.

    Why apple hasn't released a C2D macbook pro in time for the "back to school" buying season is beyond me. Every single one of these events is a possibility for an upgrade. Furthermore, those of us that want the latest and greatest for a $2,000+ investment are getting a little tired of being let down over and over again.

    Get with the program Apple!! GOSH

    I hope so, 10.4.7 is still the prime suspect for breaking my Firewire audio interface.

    im not to fond of 10.4.7 either. i think 10.3.7 was when my G5 crashed and i had to re-install OS X :eek: when 10.5.7 rolls around, i think ill skip it.

    I strongly disagree that these ads are elitist, or even snobbery. The point of the ads is that mac is different. HP can use demonstrations to show how, in a perfect world, their computers can do good stuff with windows. Apple has a different need. Apple does not build commodity computers. Apple is an ALTERNATIVE SYSTEM must differentiate itself compared to everything else out there. The need is to show that there IS a difference, and that Apple represents a very different way of working with computers.

    Two new models, a "high end" and a smaller "low end" model???

    Already exists. They are called the 8gb iPhone 3GS for $99, and the 32gb iPhone 4 for $299.

    Next year, there will be an iPhone 4 with 8gb for $99, and the iPhone 5 will take over the $199/$299 spots with new, fantastic features. :)

    How much cheaper does Apple need to make the phone to entice buyers? What can they do to make a more expensive phone for "high end" customers? Make it gold-plated, or possibly an iPhone with 24" spinner rims?

    I agree with everyone else here, Shaw Wu should stop being a fake analyst and get to work at his new, more appropriate job� asking me if I want fries with that.

    Automotive is one of the few industries still left in the U.S. It might be beneficial to look at where all the parts are made. ;) Let's talk about electronics, clothing, and shoes... :p

    most places around my area are right about $3.95/gal. for 87 Octane, unless it is BP/Arco which will be a few cents cheaper typically.

    It is a desktop. i have also decided to throw my PS3 in the mix so it will be helping out at night.

    oh ok. well you could add a video card to your desktop and fold with it also if you wanted. right now nvidia cards are better. probably a GTX 260 is best bang for your buck

    Oct 27, 09:43 AM
    Well that would explain a lot. :D

    But seriously though, it's not that much that is missing from .mac to make it worth the $99 without regrets.


    - fully editable web calendar
    - fully editable address book
    - spam management
    - more storage (2GB would be sufficient)
    - make the Finder fast so iDisk is actually usable
    - web editable blog synched back to iWeb
    - possibility to show subscribed iCals in web interface without having to visit their site
    - integrate stickies into .mac and synch them

    With those things, that would be fairly easy to do I don't think a lot of people would complain anymore.

    And it's not really something completely new, just evolution of the existing.


    I tried the new .macmail on my G3/500 iMac this morning, and surprise, surprise, it was horribly slow. At this this morning on my XP box in FF2.0, the UI cooks along nicely. The server updates are slower than I'd like.

    Get the calendar fully integrated online and I'd probably use my .mac email more than my gmail account.

    OFFTOPIC: Firefox 2.0 has a new feature of spell checking what you are typing in any web window! This makes up for .mac's lack of on the fly spell checking which is great for me at work in the XP world.

    Thanks Apple, you are getting much closer to justifying the .mac cost!

    even the normal ones cant match up to the 320m esp in windows so i wonder how a 6EU underclocked/volted HD3000 would be able to catch up:mad:

    All mobile CPUs have Intel HD 3000 which has 12 EUs.
