Mac

There is a silent battle going on behind the curtains between the major operating systems. When it comes to gaming, for example, Windows is still the leader. If we're talking about Linux, then everyone knows that it owns the server market. Mac OS X looks pretty and has a few applications that are still making the system a tool for media production. When it comes to Live systems, neither Windows nor Mac OS X can hold a candle to Linux.

MacOs-Linux 11.04 was a project that seemed to attract problems right from the start. It was a Linux distribution based on Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty Narwhal) that imitated the desktop and a few functionality of the operating system made by Apple.

Many users thought that the distribution will run into various copyright issues and that seem to have been the case. The developer contacted us and said that the Sourceforge listing has been removed and the project has been killed.

Will Apple sue Amazon for copying the iPhone?

Legal

Let’s face it, Apple has never been shy about suing other companies that they think have infringed on their intellectual property. The recent legal fights with Samsung are a good example, but there have been others over the years. At one point Steve Jobs even vowed to use Apple’s billions to destroy Android in court because he regarded it as a stolen product.

Apple has made it clear that they will go after anybody that they think has copied their work. The company has spent millions and millions of dollars trying to protect its patents and products. The end result has been somewhat muddled, but that doesn’t mean that Apple will stop sending its lawyers after those it regards as thieves.

The hype is growing for the iPhone 6, and TheStreet jumped on the bandwagon with another silly article about how the iPhone 6 is going to “demolish Android.” TheStreet essentially claims that a larger screen iPhone 6 will be so good that it will just blow away every Android phone and bring zillions of Android users over to the iPhone. The fanboyish blather in this article reeks of a desperate attempt on TheStreet’s part to gin up page views and ad impressions.

Why Samsung is the Mitt Romney of the Android world

Samsung has always come across as a bit of a sleazy company to me. Something about the company has always just rubbed me the wrong way. Whenever I see a Samsung ad or read a story about them I feel like I’ve been slimed. It’s a feeling akin to dealing with a used car salesman or an insurance salesman, you just know that they are full of crap and you feel dirty after dealing with them.

You could even call Samsung the Mitt Romney of Android manufacturers. I lived in Massachusetts when Romney was governor so I knew what a grinning sleazebag he was, and despite that I held my nose and voted for the trouser snake back in 2012 simply because I felt he was slightly less bad when it comes to the economy than four more years of Dear Leader Obama (next time remind me to vote third party…a pox on both their houses…ugh!). But I felt dirty after I cast that vote, and that’s how Samsung makes me feel: dirty.

It’s not unusual for Apple CEO Tim Cook to blast anything that is not pro Apple. As a result, few were surprised when Tim Cook labeled Yukari Iwatani Kane’s book “Haunted Empire: Apple After Steve Jobs” as “nonsense.” Iwatani Kane claims that Apple is no longer the company they were under Jobs, and that we have already seen the best that they have to offer.
