Is an Apple Search Engine on Track?

Tue, 15 Feb 2005 09:41:36 GMT

Matthew Rothenberg: Here's an interesting tidbit from blog-daddy Dave Winer: On Friday, Dave remarked that he'd seen a week's worth of sharply elevated traffic headed his way from This spike whetted his curiousity about whether Cupertino might be testing out some sort of hitherto unannounced Web-searching facility. It's a compelling idea that fits nicely with Apple's efforts to put its own stamp on its customers' online experience, from e-commerce to e-mail to online storage. It's had its share of false starts (viz. eWorld), but Apple has kept on trucking. And in the realm of desktop search, the company has led the way with its Sherlock technology and the Spotlight capabilities slated for Mac OS X [base "]Tiger.[per thou] Now that it's beaten Google for brand recognition, is Apple ready to take on the upstart in the field of Web search?

New iPod Cheesecake?

Mon, 11 Oct 2004 00:38:20 GMT

Matthew Rothenberg: A photo iPod? Couldn't have seen that one coming! According to my favorite independent site for samizdat Apple product info -- Think Secret -- Jon Rubinstein's elves over at the company's iPod division are wrapping just such a gadget in time for the holiday shopping season...

mac mess

Thu, 30 Sep 2004 10:50:08 GMT

Adam Curry: I bit the proverbial bullet last night and re-installed my OSX system.I must admit that it was totally painless, took a bit to download all the updates (about 100megs) but so far (stay away Murphy!) everything seems not only back to normal, but better than before. All my apps still work, prefs are still in place... Just like the old days when your Mac would hang or crash, just shut down, shake twice and restart... I'm lovin' it!

A New Take on the Mac Tablet

Mon, 06 Sep 2004 23:57:45 GMT

Matthew Rothenberg: Another Mac trade show, another no-show for a keyboard-free Apple portable. Apple Expo in Paris indeed provided a launchpad for a radically redesigned iMac desktop that in many ways turns the tablet concept on its side; but while recent Apple patent filings for a "handheld computer" sparked optimistic predictions about a whole new portable platform, an actual slate was not in the offing. So what's the frequency, Philip?

Longhorn: It's What's for Dinner

Sun, 29 Aug 2004 19:55:28 GMT

Matthew Rothenberg: Jobs and Co. tweaked Microsoft's collective nose with this brassy assertion back at June's Worldwide Developers Conference. During that Mac developer lovefest, Apple insisted that its next big cat (due in the first half of 2005) will deliver most of the features promised for the beefy Windows upgrade (slated for 2006). Longhorn is cowpathing, Apple maintained, and Tiger will take a chunk out of its hide. Now that boast turns out to be inaccurate: It was too conservative...

The Boy Who Cried "Mac Table"

Fri, 13 Aug 2004 22:47:25 GMT

Matthew Rothenberg: After all Apple's protestations to the contrary, could this really be the year of the Mac Tablet? Tony Smith of The Register thinks it's a distinct possibility--and he's got the European trademark filing to prove it. According to his article (and accompanying illustrations), the company is seeking to trademark a "handheld computer" packed into a chassis that resembles a disembodied iBook screen and lacks any obvious keyboard...

Mac Trouper No. 1

Tue, 03 Aug 2004 06:01:34 GMT

PreFab UI Browser 1.2

Tue, 04 Nov 2003 03:33:20 GMT

Brent Simmons: PreFab UI Browser 1.2 helps with the new GUI Scripting feature of Mac OS X by allowing you to "explore, control and monitor the user interface of most Mac OS X applications. It lets you navigate the user interface hierarchy then generate useful AppleScript statements with a single click."


Wed, 30 Apr 2003 23:12:31 GMT

John Robb: If any Mac developer(s) want(s) to work with UserLand to build a slick interface for Radio (like this one for Windows), let me know. I suspect based on UserLand's sales into the Mac community that it would be worth $50-$100 k in revenue to the partner in the first year (more in follow on years). Not a bad way to supplement income during a slow economic period. Note: UserLand sells software to over 3,500 companies, schools, and organizations.

Mulling Over Fate of Macworld

Mon, 30 Dec 2002 20:40:58 GMT

Innovations in Mac History

Wed, 02 Oct 2002 23:14:32 GMT

Dave Winer: Leander Kahney digs through the archives and discovers that many of the innovations in Mac history came from small independent developers, not Apple. Keep digging Leander, there's much more to the story.

Remind me why I haven't upgrade before now...

Sat, 10 Aug 2002 00:51:32 GMT

Rob McNair-Huff: The installation of 1GB of RAM in my Pismo PowerBook went fine and the machine does indeed feel more snappy with all of that RAM rather than relying on the hard drive for RAM intensive programs and operations. I won't bore anyone with the details, but at a cost of less than $200 including the shipping, this purchase from is a bargain...

Apple Disrepects Yet Another Developer

Fri, 19 Jul 2002 19:06:19 GMT

Oliver Wrede: It is really disappointing to hear that Apple rips off one of the most innovative application from a developer and actually copies the concept of Watson to Sherlock 3 without actually featuring Karelia for this.

Mailing list for OS X developers of web services apps

Fri, 28 Jun 2002 22:49:03 GMT

Brent Simmons: The osxweb mailing list was formed to promote inter-operability between OS X apps that use web services and formats such as XML-RPC, RSS, OPML, and so on. The idea is to create informal standards for things like clipboard formats for RSS items. (The idea is not, for instance, to work on RSS itself.) A secondary goal is to promote a toolbox of code that app developers can use.

Dori Smith: Apple has always been caught between the duelling alternatives of being a software company vs. being a hardware company. When Steve came back, killed Claris, killed clones, and spun-off FileMaker, it was clear that a decision had been made. Anything Apple does with software now is simply a way to sell more boxes.
