Just as the iPod became a gateway drug for the iPhone, which itself became the gateway drug for the iPad, iOS is set to become the platform that tempts people into the OS X ecosystem.
While the iPad is chomping away at U.S. K-12 markets, Macs are edging their way into the business market, likely as a result of the post-PC push by Apple's counterpart iPhone and iPad devices.
Intel and Apple introduced Thunderbolt technology with much fanfare earlier this year, but since then the number of products shipping with the new super-fast interface has been limited to new Macs and a handful of peripherals. According to a DigiTimes report, that could change in a big way next year, as the site claims that some big PC names plan to introduce Thunderbolt support in their products in 2012.
A deal that helps both companies out, OnLive, the service that hosts PC games in the cloud and streams them to users on a range of devices, is coming to Vizio's new lineup of HDTVs, Blu-ray players, and Android tablet and smartphone.Since launching last year with an app for Macs and PCs, OnLive has released a small set-up box (the OnLive MicroConsole) to connect to TVs and run its service as well as an iPad app.
134 students, 83 smart phones, 8 laptops - 3 of them macs. Sorry guys, but the PC just isn't cool anymore. It's back to the future: the 1980s in this case, this time with different bad guys and better answers.

Worried about the Black Screen of Death? Don't. Startup problems are not new to PC hardware and operating systems, and the phenomenon definitely isn't limited to the Windows operating system. Blank or black screens can strike Macs, Linux, and Windows. Fortunately, they're relatively rare. Here's what to look for and how to troubleshoot a black screen if you encounter one.
When it comes to "dead-finger tech" -- that is, technology that's so integral to your life that you'd have to pry it from your cold, dead fingers -- the choice for me is clear: the 13-inch Apple MacBook Pro.All my computing life, I've switched between Macs and PCs, so I've never felt any particular allegiance to either system (my last laptop was a Dell Windows PC).
Plex Media Server connects your Plex clients with all of your local and online media. The combination of centralized library management,...
One of Apple's better Mac vs PC ads features a strong message that Windows computers are a magnet for viruses (malware) but Macs are automatically protected. As PC "ah-choos" his way through an infection, Mac offers a tissue and smugly infers that he's immune to the 114,000 Windows viruses.
Walt Mossberg just posted his fall guide called "Shopping for Basics and Saving Money on Your Next PC" with a focus on tight budgets in tough economic times. Although Mossberg consistently recommends Macs, he can't sidestep the price gap between Macs and Windows boxes this go around:I consider the Mac operating system, Leopard, to be faster, easier and more stable than Windows XP or Windows Vista.
Like the Japanese car in the Dearborn auto plant parking lot, Macs and iPhones must create problems for switchers working at Apple competitors as well as companies with a PC-or-die IT policy.
I was talking with a friend yesterday about a good metaphor for why I think experience is so important for Rich Internet Applications. He stopped me and said that it was just a no brainer. "That's why people buy Apples. They do exactly what you think they should." I agreed, but there still aren't that many people buying Apples. We've seen an uptick recently because with the Intel Macs, people no longer have to chose between Windows or Mac, they can have both. Apple has built a very good niche in the PC market because of the experience, but widespread adoption has been slow in coming. One could argue that the iPod shows that you can monetize experience, but I want to go for something a little more - like cars.
Domino effect knocks back due date for software to make Apple computers look like everyone else's.
It just takes longer to make a program that will make a Macintosh run Windows software, Microsoft reports. The delay will also push back the release of one version of Office 2004 for Mac.
Apple Computer shipped 25% more Macs in the UK in the Q4 2003 than the previous year, according to marketing intelligence firm IDC. An analyst for the company believes consumer interest in Apple's iPod portable music player helped to spotlight its Macintosh PC and benefited sales.
CEO Steve Jobs lays claim to the desktop PC speed title with the unveiling of new G5-based Power Macs, but skeptics say the benchmark tests were rigged.
Apple Computer CEO Steve Jobs rolls out a new crop of Power Macs that he says can outperform any Windows-based PC on the market.
Apple's latest ad campaign is about getting Windows users to switch to Macs. This makes Virtual PC, an app that lets you run PC software on the Mac, more relevant than ever. I think VPC can be better than the real thing.
Archos Technology, one of the first companies to sell a high-capacity portable MP3 player based on a hard drive, on Tuesday announced the release of a portable hard drive for data storage.

Connectix on Wednesday released version 5 of Virtual PC, its software for running DOS or Windows on Macs. The software, which supports both Mac OS 9 and OS X, comes in separate versions for PC-DOS, Windows 98, 2000 or XP.
The "ILOVEYOU" worm currently infecting PC systems worldwide cannot replicate itself on a Macintosh, experts told MacWEEK. However, Macs running Windows emulators such as Connectix's Virtual PC and FWB Software's SoftWindows could be affected.
