Remote Desktop 2

ThinkSecret notes in this article that Apple is developing Remote Desktop 2.0, which will incorporate some VNC technologies and allow it to be a client for other operating systems at the very least. (Hopefully, it'll also serve others...)

'Spoken interface': MAc OS X 10.4?

This Apple page talking about the spoken interface says that it's coming 'soon'. Yet it names the 'next major release', which will either be called 10.4 or 10.5 as far as we know. ... My take? Well: It's probably going to work in English only, right? Too bad. Because while Windows doesn't have such great features included in the OS, there are many third parties adding them in several languages, while they're just not available on the Mac. I'd love to be wrong and hear my Mac talk German for the first time, but I doubt it.
