Mac OS X 10.3.2 7D18 still has the Macromedia bug...

A few testers wrote in that the bug discovered in 7D15 (some Macromedia apps' dialogue boxes' buttons can't be pressed, although keyboard-shortcuts like 'enter' and 'esc' work) is still present in the newest build of Panther.

Pioneer Press compares iMac and Gateway 610

Read it all at this location. Or just take our words for it: The article compares nicely the two products but fails to say the most obvious thing for a long-time Apple Macintosh user: The Mac is cheaper. In every sense. The 20" iMac costs more, of course, but hey: It's a twenty inch iMac!

Compare the other models, though, and you see a different story... The 17" Gateway 610XL costs 2'000 USD, the (same screen size of 17") iMac costs 1'799 USD. If you go 'cheaper': Without DVD-burner, the 610 costs 1'500 USD, the iMac 1'299 USD. Gateway Profile 5 costs 1'100 USD, the eMac can be had for 799 USD.

So what do we learn? PCs are more expensive than Macs. Let's keep it simple, shall we? ;-)

A review of SonyEricsson's P900 has reviewed the SonyEricsson P900 smartphone. Quoting their conclusion: "While the Sony Ericsson P900 does indeed deliver improvements in most areas when compared with the P800, none of these are particularly noteworthy. Some small flaws still remain, but the P900 now represents what the P800 should have been at launch, yet finds itself competing in a far tougher market. Still, with snappy performance, a good feature set and quite a bit of software available, the overall impression of the P900 would be good was it not for its steep price tag: at 700 EUR - or more in some cases - there are certainly alternatives worth considering."
