Apple: The Newest Corporate Darling?

Posted by Michael Knutson in "Apple Talk" @ 09:30 PM

"The LA Times posted an interesting story on the iPhone and iPad in business this weekend. In a nutshell, Apple is winning over many corporate converts because it is good enough as an emailing device but does so much more ..."

Interesting to think that more and more Apple devices are showing up as 'approved devices' in the enterprise. From iPhones to iPads to Macs, it is no longer a rarity to see an office with Macs alongside Windows computers, and iPhones and Blackberries living in relative business harmony. As devices gain enterprise capabilities, the old knock against Apple ('a device that we don't know how to support') is becoming ancient history. As the author states, the line between business and personal use is blurring - good riddance I say! Use what you like, and like what you use! So, what's in your office?

Read All About Steve, and Something Called the Mac

"At age 28, Steven P. Jobs, Chairman of Apple Computer, was on top of his game-rich, famous, spoiled, and seemingly unrestrained by the usual social mores. He had the chiseled face, jutting jaw and thick black hair of a typical matinee idol."

Before you worry too much, the rest of the story doesn't read like it's coming from an Apple fan boy meeting Steve Jobs for the first time. I found the stories interesting, especially coming from Dave Bunnell, co-creator of Macworld, and he has ten installments about what it was like in the early days before, during and after Macworld (the magazine) was born.

Sony Wraps Blu Ray Firmware ISO in Windows EXE

Posted by Vincent Ferrari in "Apple Software (OS X)" @ 12:00 PM

Let's face it. One of the harsh realities of having a Mac is that sometimes some dopey companies make decisions that, to say the least, defy all semblances of logic. Take for instance, Sony. A friend of mine has a Sony BDP-S300 Blu Ray player. Of course it won’t play some newer movies, and since he doesn’t have an ethernet jack on his, that means he has to burn a disc with the firmware update, drop it in the player, and let it roll. He had some issues with burning the disc, and he tweeted that he needed a Windows PC to do it. No problem, I have Parallels, so I decided I would see if I could help out. I went to Sony’s page for the firmware update and was surprised to see the downloads were only for Windows-based PC’s.

Since I have parallels, this isn't really an issue for me, so I grabbed the file, and extracted it, and lo and behold what do I see? An ISO file! That's right, Sony packed an industry standard ISO file inside a Windows self-extractor. For what reason? Darned if I know, they just decided that only Windows users should be able to update their Blu-Ray players, I guess. Linux and Mac users? Well, despite the fact that the firmware is inside an industry-standard ISO, you can't play because you didn't succumb to the Redmond Kool-Aid.

I'm sorry, but does this really make sense to anyone?
