Last Thursday a mysterious blogger named Trinity Rubicon posted some terrific screen shots he alleged were from Apple's unreleased Mac OS 10.5 (a.k.a. "Leopard"). The two shots, posted on a blogger account with no other posts, sent the Mac world into a fit of speculation and debate.

I've been writing all week about the pros and cons of iChat AV and the power of video conferencing in general. Today I want to take a look at a new option for video chatting that I recently discovered.
Judging by my column the past couple of days you'd think that I didn't like iChat AV or something. Au contraire!

iChat was once the pantheon of instant messaging clients with its delicious aqua interface, no obnoxious ads (like AIM) and a simple ease-of-use that's undeniable. But since the release of iChat AV (a.k.a. version 3) the application has added features at the expense of reliability.
A friend recently told me about his experience getting a follow-up phone call from Apple after not completing an online purchase.
The UK's Mail on Sunday reported that Apple's iPods are made in China by mainly female workers who earn as little as 27 pounds per month. The report set off a tidal wave of objection and claims that iPods are made in sweatshops.
One of the most-anticipated and pre-hyped products of all times has to be the iPhone. A hybrid device that is part mobile phone and part iPod has the potential to light the mobile technology world on fire like the original iPod did five years ago.
When Google acquired @Last Software on 14 March 2006 I got excited about the prospect of having a tidy little application to design all the house projects that I have planned for the summer.
