RE: The Real Reason Apple's Tim Cook Has Been Underestimated

Reader McElroy is correct. Working from memory, I got the two reversed.

RE: Every Important Link From Apple's 9/9 Event - On One Page

looper: I would have linked to an Apple announcement, but is was done very quietly, and there was nothing from Apple to link to. It just disappeared from the Apple store.

RE: What Apple Just Did Was Change the World. Again

Blissmonkey: The TMO team did note the change from "i" to the "Apple" prefix. Part of it may be, in my opinion, Tim Cook putting his own stamp on the company. Also, I think the "i" prefix was wearing out its welcome. The "Apple" prefix is better branding and can continue forever without seeming cutesy. IMO.

RE: Star Walk 2 for iOS Suffers a Myriad of User Interface Flaws

Reader Weasner is correct. The photo I used was supplied by Vito Technology in the press kit. In the actual app, the constellation is labelled correctly, but the bear is still facing the wrong way.

RE: Apple's September 9 Event Won't be What we Expect

ctopher: It's not just me. Virtual Machine apps like Parallels Desktop, VMware Fusion and even Virtual Box have been instrumental in luring millions of Windows customers over to Macs. Apple would, I surmise, have to think long and hard about giving up this feature for potential Switchers.

RE: Apple's September 9 Event Won't be What we Expect

Mr. Lubin. You have some intriguing thoughts. What always interests me is the virtual machine side of things. Apple would gain the ability to run iOS apps on a Mac, but lose the ability to run every major OS, Windows and Linux (which are compiled for Intel) as a guest virtual machine. That's another consideration.

RE: Parallels Desktop 10 for Mac: More Mobile Efficiency, More Ease of Use

Lee: I think most people would agree that for the Mac user who needs to use Windows occasionally, WIndows 7 is the best bet.

RE: Recover a Mangled URL in the Address Bar of Safari, Other Browsers

Mr. O'Brien. Not sure what you meant. If you try to reload a page with a mangled URL, you'll get a 404 error.
