  1. Windows users are used to being let down and dissapointed. So the delay in vista is not that big a deal to them. 🙂

  2. PRODOS for the Apple II came with the IIe not just the IIGS that becamme the graphical computer for that moment, away from the herrcules pixel-blocks desplays.

    PRODOS was an extension to DOS of the earlier Apples, but there were some important improvements: sequentialfiles were permitted, contrary to the record-based files you could vreate before from within the BASIC interpreter.

    And it became possible to compile BASIC programs as well.

  3. Great show. Is there a handy-dandy list of the tips and short-cuts that I’m missing? I listen while I drive so not exactly conducive to note taking.

    One thing on the discussion of Vista which led to complaints about Apple advertising. The commercial I want to see is nothing more than showing off spotlight. Needing a document on my XP machine at work I can often go get coffee and visit with co-workers while XP is lumbering along trying to find the file. In OSX, it’s instant.

    One of my friends is now asking me about buying an iMac. He was impressed when I used iDVD to burn a copy of a show he forget to record but blown away when he saw Spotlight in action.

  4. What happened to episode 6? I’m not seeing it on iTunes and it wasn’t automatically downloaded through my subscription.

  6. Were working on it. It’s been hard getting everyone together at the same time to record.

    Life happens. Look for a new show soon.
