Hail Leopard!

Friday, October 26th, 2007

Apple released Mac OS X v10.5 “Leopard” this evening. I went down the Apple Store in Braintree for the event. Photos and a video are here. I pickd up a copy of Leopardfor myself, plus one of the free t-shirts they were giving away as part of the event. I’ll wait a few days before installing Leopard - I’ll let other people find out what the bugs are ;)

UPDATE: I added another image to the gallery.

Trouble at Amazon MP3?

Monday, October 8th, 2007

In the last week I’ve noticed that at least three albums have been removed from Amazon MP3. Two of them were ones I had wanted to buy songs off of, and the third was the one I mentioned in my previous review with the mixed-up song titles. I have no idea if the other two albums had the same problem, but that is the only reasonable explanation I can come up with. Given that I have only looked at six dozen or so albums with the intention of actually buying songs, this problem appears to be much more widespread on Amazon than I would have expected. I hope Amazon resolves this and brings back those albums quickly.

I don’t like you either, Sony

The head of litigation at Sony BMG effectively just called most of their customers thieves. While testifying in one of the numerous music-piracy trials, she claimed that ripping CDs to make backups or to put music on an iPod was stealing. What an idiot. I hope Sony loses the case big-time.
