The new Sandvox web aauthoring application that is to compete with Apple’siWeb can be found here. I haven’t tried the app yet, but give it a go. Since the system requirements are quite steep on the iLife ’06, you might not need or be able to run the full package, so Sandvox might be your best bet if you are in the need of a web authoring application.
Mike Evangelist on writersblocklive.com has mentioned it before and apparently it was the case this time.
There should have been “one more thing” to Steve Jobs keynote at MacWorld the other day, but one noted Mac writer said a well-placed Apple polisher told him the black-turtlenecked one’s speech had to be adjusted at the last minute.
According to David A. Utter on webpronews.com who quotes Leander Kahney on Wired.
Way cooler than remplacements for the 12′ and 17′ PBs… G5 remplacements? Or what? I must admit that the keynote seemed a bit like a re-run when the iLife demo was on – new features yes – but nothing ground breaking… Only time or Steve will tell…
Gadgets are a new category of mini-application designed to provide information, useful lookup, or enhance an application or service on your Windows PC or the Web
Another example of Microsoft trying to implement something that already exists on the Mac OS and then call it new! Anyway, it will probably just be another way to infect the Windows world with viruses…
I just noticed that Flickr has launched their printing service. You (or whoever you authorise) may now order print of your photos on Flickr. That is, if you (or those you authorise) are located in the U.S.
One would think that Flickr would be more international than many other Internet content providers. I don’t know if their customer base in mainly U.s based, but I know that once again the extra services they now provide is U.S. only.
From their blog:
For now it is U.S. only (we know! we’re working hard on rolling it out everywhere!).
I seriously doubt that they will roll out anything here in Luxembourg as it is the case as well with the iPhoto photo printing service
As you may notice I am not as ecstatic as many of the others on Flickr (the U.S. inhabitants) – and I suppose they are Windows or Linux users, because the iPhoto service is largely sufficient for your printing needs.
The QOOP service looks interesting though. They ship worldwide, but will the shipping to Luxembourg not be e x o r b i t a n t?
So it is official now. I wonder what service to turn to now? Gizmo? I would not be surprised, if the Skype services would deteriorate and at the same time become more expensive to use (4.1bn to scrape in…).
The first thing that will happen is probably that the application will become Windows only…
