Windows & Mac OS Are About to Run Side-by-Side on the Same Mac

The Apple ad copy “It’s the only computer you’ll ever need” is coming more and more true, and I was sure this was coming. I’m glad to see it coming so soon…

CNet reports on a software called “Parallels” in Windows, Mac OS to run side-by-side.

Steve Jobs Pokes Michael Dell as Apple’s Market Cap Tops Dell’s

I remember a Steve Jobs presentation shortly after he took back the reigns at Apple where he projected an image of Michael Dell’s face on the bull’s eye of a target. He took aim and “bingo,” he “made it so.” According to this report in the NY Times, Jobs couldn’t pass up the milestone of Apple’s market cap passing Dell’s (at least for the moment) without a comment to his “team.” Amazing. The drama continues…

Apple’s Influence Increasing Beyond Belief: A Leader Despite a Follower’s Marketshare

The more I think about it, the more amazing Apple’s success is. Eat your heart out, Bill Gates. It’s Apple that is setting the pace now, making the best software and the best hardware, and “owning” the digital music/media business that every media business covets (iTunes is has something like an 84% marketshare.)

I won’t rant on. Suffice it to say that I am amazed and delighted. Perhaps this piece by FORTURE senior editor, Peter Lewis, “Tiny Apple has oversized influence” from CNNMoney.com says it all. With subheads like: “Setting standards” and “Tiny marketshare, big influence,” you get the idea. Who woulda thunk it, but I agree with Lewis’ assessment that “once again Apple appears to be setting the standards for the rest of the PC and consumer electronics industries.” Congrats! Keep up the good work, Apple.

Steve Jobs MacWorld Keynote Video: Watch It Now

The video of the Steve Jobs keynote is now up on Apple’s website. The quality is quite good, and if you’ve never seen Jobs do one of these presentations, I think it’s not to be missed. If you’ve seen one, you know. Thank God, they are finally getting this video up to watchable quality.

And thank goodness, Apple is doing so well. Mr. Jobs reports record revenue, record iPod sales (14 million last quarter, 42 million total), new videos for sale via the iTunes store, demos of all the new iLife applications (including iMovie with podcasting), and the announcement of the new Intel Macs six months ahead of schedule.

Go, Steve!

New Intel Macs, sure. But Google Earth Mac, YEAH!

Don’t get me wrong. I’m psyched about the new Intel MacBooks and iMacs, but what I’ve really been waiting for is Google Earth for the Mac. Finally, It’s here! It’s like piloting your own aircraft over the earth, or getting a real “birds eye view”…

And while I’m blabbing, eh, I mean blogging, kudos to the Apple marketing folks for the line: “What’s an Intel chip doing in a Mac? A whole lot more than it’s ever done in a PC.” Stay tuned for the Steve Jobs video keynote. A show worthy of your attention, IMHO.
