Mac OS X 10.6.2 Will Block Atom Processors

Cannelloni Apple will *never* release Mac OS X... (1012 comments)

...for hackintoshes, period. If you want to run Mac OS X and Mac applications properly, you can just buy an Apple machine. Apple will not likely give away it's crown jewels to some cheap-ass laptop maker. Why is this so hard to understand? I mean people have been posing the same old question since 1984. Apple is, and has always been, the Mac OS (or, originally, the System), bundled software and hardware that's extremely tightly integrated with the software, and this will *never* change.

Toyota Claims Woman "Opted In" To Faux Email Stalking

Cannelloni A clear case (667 comments)

This possibly the stupidest advertising campaign I have ever heard of. How does this build confidence in the Toyota brand? How does this treat the customer in a respectful manner? How does this make people buy Toyota Matrix cars? The very unprofessional and careless people responsible for this at Saatchi & Saatchi and the people at Toyota who signed the approval should be fired immediately. Yes, this woman was probably not really in real distress, but maybe she should have the money just to make sure this kind of advertising never happens again. Unless, of course, further evidence reveals that it was clearly stated, or plainly understood from the very beginning, that this campaign was a joke.

Report Claims Iran Has Data To Build a Nuclear Bomb

Cannelloni Wrong city, bro! (630 comments)

"Meanwhile, Jerusalem is communicating with the Kremlin about a list of Russian scientists it believes are assisting Iran's efforts to develop the bomb." If you are referring to the capital of Israel that would be *Tel Aviv* and not Jerusalem.

The Mac has had multiple-button mice since the end of the 1990s, but you already knew that, right?

Nokia Leaks Phone With Full GNU/Linux Distribution

Cannelloni Sounds like an ad to me (621 comments)

"the unmatchable power of GNU/Linux" Linux is not "unmatchable" by any means. There are other operating systems with the same capabilities.

Windows 7 RTM Reviewed & Benchmarked

Cannelloni Re:Great goals (792 comments)

I *never* shut down my Macbook Pro, and only restart after a software update that requires it. Why shut down when the machine has efficient power management? I don't see the point. Windows is such an old load of bollocks, I will never touch it again.

English DJ Claims Wi-Fi Allergy

Cannelloni The levels are VERY low (515 comments)

I measured the RF levels of all electric and electronic devices I had in the office and at home, and the Wi-Fi base stations had the radio emissions of all the devices I tested. An old CRT TV and a microwave oven had moderate levels and my GSM mobile phone was by far the most high-powered of them all! That is not to say this man hasn't got problems, but the symptoms are cause not by wireless base stations but by something else, his stress levels or social situation in life perhaps. It could be he simply suffers from severe sleep deprivation. Now, I am NOT putting him down. I take this VERY seriously because I have been suffering from stress myself, but I know there is treatment for this in the form of medication and therapy. Base stations are however, and I can say this with some level of confidence, absolutely harmless because the power levels are so very low compared to all the other RF we are constantky surrounded by in the modern world.

Ballmer Pleads For Openness To Compete With Apple

Cannelloni I want a phone that works (532 comments)

I want a phone that's designed and built by a single company, with a reliable operating system and software distribution model. So, simply put, vertical integration is fine. I don't see any reason why Apple should open source the iPhone. Apple, and the iPhone, are doing just fine, and this results is great products.

Microsoft May Be Targeting the Ubuntu Desktop

Cannelloni Re:MS ais probably not worried about Linux (583 comments)

As I was saying, it's a very small percentage of users. Linux is a great thing, but it has largely failed to make an impact i the market, probably because there is no single dominant distribution, at least two popular user interfaces, and lots of user interface problems and limitations. Evolution was a great initiative, but they somehow went out of business. I like Linux and I want it very much to reach out to a wider audience, but as long as there are so much fragmentation of Linux' mindshare, it simply going to happen. It's still, ten years late, a VERY small market.

Linux' share of the market is in the 0.1 region, whereas Mac OS X has 9.9 percent. Windows has nothing to fear from Linux.

New MS ad blitz says Vista is not rubbish

Cannelloni Cannelloni writes  |  more than 6 years ago

Cannelloni (969195) writes "ZDNet.com has spotted the beginnings of a new ad campaign from Microsoft that claims Vista is not a rubbish operating system after all. What do you make of it? http://blogs.zdnet.com/Bott/?p=499 I think it is a little funny that the sailing ship in the picture, a clipper if I am not mistaken, is from the 19th century, an era in which the general public had know for some 350 years that the world is, in fact, round."
