I think John C. Dvorak is way off base with his story (theory) that Apple may adopt the Windows OS. I would argue exactly the opposite. I believe that we will see more people trying to get OS X to run on their PC systems. Already, I have read multiple stories and heard podcasts about people attempting to run OS X on a PC. Also, I think we will see even greater software and hardware support for the Apple OS now that it is so similar to the PC platform. My last comment on this subject is this… What type of computers do you think Steve Jobs will suggest the company purchase for the animators to use (enjoy and be even more productive with) at the next Disney board meeting??? hehe. 🙂
As stated in my previous entry, I predict that Apple has just opened the gateway for even more Apple applications running on a PC and not the other way around. Who knows, maybe we’ll see something about this on Feb 28th!?? Invitations to an event at 10:00AM in Cupertino have already been sent. The suspense is awesome!
The profits at Apple have only just begun!!!
With the latest hardware announcments from Apple, I’m surprised more people haven’t come up with the following theory. My guess is that Apple has not only been developing it’s OS to run on the Intel processor, but they’ve also been developing their software applications to run on Windows. Just like Quicktime and iTunes have been ported for Windows, so will their suite of iLife applications. I mean, wouldn’t it make sense? They are having to develop versions that run on the Intel processor anyway. Would it be that big of a jump to make the software run on “WinTel” system? I think not. I think it is just a matter of time until we see full blown Apple Applications being sold for the millions of windows users. Wouldn’t it be great to have iPhoto run on your windows xp system? Also, Apple recently announced that their iDVD application will now run on any DVD burner – they no longer require that you have a superdrive from Apple. I think they are simply gearing up to sell their incredibly affordable ($79) suite to the masses and continue to earn record profits!
I do not guarantee these statements, they are simply my theories.
Okay, I’ve done it. I finally cracked. I now have a blog. I just couldn’t resist the temptation to learn what all the fuss was about. I don’t have too much to offer so far (obviously), but I can say this, WORDPRESS is the easiest damn application I have ever installed on a web server! It simply kicks ass. Took me all of about 4 minutes and I’m no genious (obviously). Not only is it a cinch to install, but it looks great too. Very clean application. My thanks to the programmers!
I’m not yet sure what will be posted here, but I’m confident I’ll come up with something. Oh, and if you were looking for the old site, sorry, it’s gone. I got tired of getting hacked (phpnuke security is weak).
