Leopard Delayed (MAC OS)

iPhone before Leopard

I guess I have no choice but to wait now:

Apple today released the following statement: iPhone has already passed several of its required certification tests and is on schedule to ship in late June as planned. We can’t wait until customers get their hands (and fingers) on it and experience what a revolutionary and magical product it is. However, iPhone contains the most sophisticated software ever shipped on a mobile device, and finishing it on time has not come without a price—we had to borrow some key software engineering and QA resources from our Mac OS(R) X team, and as a result we will not be able to release Leopard at our Worldwide Developers Conference in early June as planned. While Leopard’s features will be complete by then, we cannot deliver the quality release that we and our customers expect from us. We now plan to show our developers a near final version of Leopard at the conference, give them a beta copy to take home so they can do their final testing, and ship Leopard in October. We think it will be well worth the wait. Life often presents tradeoffs, and in this case we’re sure we’ve made the right ones.

Blog Code of Conduct

BBC NEWS | Technology | Weblogs 'need content warnings': "The code begins: 'We celebrate the blogosphere because it embraces frank and open conversation.'"

I like the idea of logos purposing the openness of each blog. this code is not censoring blog writings, just channeling their purpose and civility, similar to the Motion Picture Guides we are used to in the US.

Death threats and abuse should not be allowed and, to me, is really stretching freedom of the press.

Something to keep in touch with.. Tim's blog is here

Mac Backups

Complete, free Mac backup

Guess it's time for me to backup my new Macbook Pro so I found this article. Now to choose which program and method.

I have an external 250gb hard drive that I use to back up data and I had partitioned it. If anyone wants to know the results of which software I have selected, drop me a line...
