  • Steve Jobs
    John Lilly: (Steve Jobs) was also a gifted, gifted operator. One of the struggles we were going through when he came back was that Apple was about the leakiest organization in history — it had gotten so bad that people were cavalier about it. In the face of all those leaks, I remember the first…
  • Apple 3.3.1 iPhone changes cause uproar
    I have been watching iPhone development for a while. I’ve played in it and with it and been fascinated by it.

    PADD = “PADD” is an acronym for Personal Access Display Device, a hand-held computer interface, used as early as the 22nd century and well into the 24th century.

  • Some Mac Stuff
    RealPlayer for MacOS X did not ship in April, as previously noted. Real is late. This makes me unhappy because I’m an NPR junkie. In other news, I picked up a new AC Adaptor from CryWolf Consulting yesterday for my Clamshell iBook SE. The old one was worn out, and when there’s no juice, computers…
