Gmail accounts: Gone. :)

I was sure they'd go quite fast, and so they did... I'll give more when I get more...

New iMac G5 in patent filing?

MacRumors updates their site with a notion of a patent filed on 2004-08-24, that shows something like this:

While the pyramid form does not strike us as very elegant in the drawing, the patent is actually for the dual swing arm. We'll see tomorrow...

BBEdit 8.0

BareBones has just released version 8 of the text editor that still doesn't suck, as they put it. Some badmouthers will of course say that BareBones is at least trying to make it suck by putting in a lot of new features, but initial testing tells us that if they've tried, they didn't manage... ;-) Here's the link.

AppleExpo Paris 2004

We'll report live from the keynote on Tuesday morning (10.00 CET) with contacts live from the keynote giving us information. If all goes well, you'll see a 'lean' layout during the keynote for bandwidth reasons updating automatically (do not reload by hand too often, please!).

Expected news: iMac G5 (1.6/1.8 GHz), some or the other software update. We'll see a new PowerBook G4 maybe tomorrow, but we will see it this Autumn. Along with the PowerBooks, the iBooks will also get faster processors. We will also hear again about Tiger and one or the other hint at Longhorn delays. There hasn't been much talk about a new eMac, although putting a G5 into that machine should be easier than putting it into an iMac or PowerBook. Our sources have confirmed that Apple was working on such a machine, however Apple might want to wait with such a release until a PowerBook G5 is ready. Some sites are naming 'iSight 2' as an extra tomorrow, however, the updated iSight (with the new magnetic holder) is already in sales channels, and another (bigger) step is not expected anytime soon. More news tomorrow, when everything's happening.
