iPod touch is for games, not pictures – Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs says iPod touch is for games, not pictures – Ars Technica

Steve Jobs gave his own explanation for the lack of a camera in the iPod touch, saying that it’s primarily a gaming machine and low-cost was an important factor. But given the hardware options in the mobile space, we’re not convinced by this argument.

Top 10 Features in OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard

Top 10 Features in OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard

techpp.com has a great list of some Snow Leopard goodness!:

“ActiveSync and Exchange 2007 support – The biggest new feature in Snow Leopard is support for Exchange, Microsoft’s popular e-mail, contact, and calendar server. Last year, iPhone got the support for Exchange and now it is the turn of Mac to make ActiveSync and Exchange 2007 native to the OS. That means Apple’s e-mail, calendar, and contacts apps work nicely with Exchange 2007 server, giving users the same capabilities as Microsoft Entourage but with the better-designed, less-memory-intensive apps — Mail, iCal, and Address Book. If you’re syncing your iPhone to the same Exchange server, all those calendar events will sync up automatically!

50 Things We Miss About Old-School Apple – Mac|Life

clarus.jpg

Mac Life goes down memory lane….

“50 Things We Miss About Old-School Apple | Mac|Life: “Just because we love our iPods, iPhones and Intel-powered Macs doesn’t mean we don’t still pine for the days of old, when our Apple logos had a bit more pizzazz, we were encouraged to venture outside the lines, and Steve’s wardrobe had more than just turtlenecks in it. So take a trip with us down memory lane as we relive everything that was great about Apple–and keep your eyes peeled for turtles, dogcows and toasted bunnies.”

Mac OS X v10.6: About incompatible software

leopard.png

Curious about what will and will not be working after you upgrade to Snow Leopard, Apple has a list for that!

“Mac OS X v10.6 Snow Leopard is designed to protect your Mac from certain incompatible software that can quit unexpectedly or cause other issues in Mac OS X v10.6.

When you install Snow Leopard or migrate to Snow Leopard, known-incompatible software is moved to a folder named Incompatible Software on your hard drive.

Snow Leopard also prevents known-incompatible software from opening.  If you see an ‘Incompatible software’ message, contact the software’s vendor or visit their website for a later, compatible version.

Products Affected
Mac OS X 10.6
Software restricted during installation and migration

During installation, Snow Leopard moves known-incompatible software to a folder named Incompatible Software at the root level of the hard drive. If you see this folder on your Mac, use the table below to check with the software vendor to see if any Mac OS X v10.6 Snow Leopard-compatible updates are available.”

TUAW on your iPhone! Cool!

One of my Favorite Sites for Mac news, TUAW now has a handy iPhone App!

“Want to read TUAW on your iPhone? There’s an app for that:

I’m not talking about i.tuaw.com, although it still exists (and will continue to evolve — we hear you!). In fact, I am talking about the TUAW native iPhone app [iTunes link]. It works on iPod touch as well. For a full list of features you can check our TUAW app page here.”
