Arrivals and Departures

It’s been an interesting bank holiday weekend. MS announced that they are cutting WinFS out of Longhorn [http://channel9.msdn.com/posts/TheChannel9Team/Jim-Allchin-The-Longhorn-Update/] which means I need to stop using my PDC Longhorn copy to add metainfo to my photos : what’s the point if I can’t use it for another four years? And now Apple has announced the G5 iMac [http://www.apple.com/imac]. Mark three looks remarkably like the monitor I use at work. It’s pretty incredible they’ve managed to fit all the hardware into a 2 inch thick TFT monitor but I hope the screen doesn’t wobble as much as my monitor does. One nudge of the table and your eyes go funny trying to keep up with the tiny up and down motions of the text you’re trying to read  type. Maybe its development has been sponsored by opticians and the like. Viral marketing by effect. Kinda like how terrorist bombings in urban areas benefit glassmakers and windowfitters. Probably.
