Brave New World

Macworld - Opening session - Jobs' speech. Amazing.


So lets get this right. The Mac Intel - due in Feb - runs Tiger and will run ALLLLLLLLL powerPc based apps via Rosetta too. Completely 100% compatible. Its a dual-core device, and there's two sizes of laptop, and two sizes of desktop.


Wow. Its amazing that the Apple folks managed a cross-CPU compatibility tool - PowerPC to Intel - in such a short time, and so well. Whereas MS - with the $30b in the bank, cant do an Intel->PowerPC emulator that supports all their games


The moral of the tale: Money cant buy you love, and as it would appear, money cant buy you brains, or a decent UI design either..
