NIIIIIIIIICE

[via AppleInsider]

When 9-year-old Shea O'Gorman and her third-grade class began learning about writing business and formal letters, she thought who better to write to than the chief executive of the company that makes her iPod nano.

In her letter to Mr. Jobs, little Shea offered her ideas on how the company could improve on its iPod digital music players, such as adding song lyrics so listeners can sing along to their tunes.

After waiting nearly three months, Shea finally received a reply from Apple's Cupertino, Calif.-based headquarters, and the entire family gathered around to read it.

To the dismay of Shea and her family, the letter wasn't from Mr. Jobs. It was from Mark Aaker, Senior Council of the company's Law Department, telling the third-grader that Apple doesnt accept unsolicited ideas, so she should not send them her suggestions and if she wants to know why, she could read their legal policy posted on the Internet.

"She was very upset, and kinda threw the letter up in the air and ran in her room and slammed her door," the girl's mother told CBS 5 News.

Of course, Apple's policy was instated to protect the company -- and anyone who submits ideas to the company -- from ending up in a costly legal spat if similar ideas are ever adopted into future Apple products. However, you'd think the handwriting of a 9-year-old may have drawn company's lighter side.

Apple reportedly decline to comment on the mishap, but the company's General Council placed a personal call to Shea to apologize following a CBS 5 News inquiry.

It was also reported that Apple held a meeting this past Wednesday in which it discussed ways that it could amend its corporate policy when dealing with children.

AT&T forwards all Internet traffic into NSA

"More than just threatening individuals' privacy, AT&T's apparent choice to give the government secret, direct access to millions of ordinary Americans' Internet communications is a threat to the Constitution itself. We are asking the Court to put a stop to it now," said Bankston.

Boot Camp stealing thunder from 10.5?

I have a question for Apple.

Is the whole Boot Camp thing the only thunder for 10.5 Leopard? That is, other then some smaller functionality features. I say, I hope not.

See here's the thing, Apple decided to forgo EFI BIOS compatibility in the new Intel chip systems upon release, but as it's EFI it could be flashed in later. Therefore, they could have created "artificial" thunder for 10.5 by leaving the compatibility out until the Steve Job's MacWorld release announcement for 10.5. Can you imagine if the OnMac project did not exist and there was this huge need for Windows on Mac, MacWorld '07 is upon us.

Steve Jobs walks out on stage and says "I've got great news... With 10.5... Windows now boots on a Mac...And it ships today."


I'd go as far as saying he would get a standing ovation.

For validity to that statement, think about this, when has Apple EVER released a public Beta test?

As an aside, some people have said that this strengthens the validity of a virtualization option in 10.5. I think it does too as WinXP cannot read from HFS+ drive/partitions, and you need an intstalled copy of WinXP anyway to virtualize it. So this might be not totally stealing the thunder of 10.5.

I guess what I'm saying is, did Apple purposefully keep this boot loader from people? Just something to think about.
