NBC pulling out of iTunes.

31 August 2007 - 06:01 PM

Well, after just a while ago with the whole Universal pulling out of iTunes fiasco, it seems that NBC is following the same path now. It seems that NBC and Apple are unable to come to a mutual agreement regarding pricing, which seems much more of a valid reason (albeit very greedy) than what Universal's excuse was....which was iTunes has a monopoly and is not allowing equal competition from other online music stores, especially when their (Universal's) catalogue was flourishing on the iTunes store.

Currently, NBC's offerings go for $1.99 on iTunes (TV shows), and they wanted to double their gain on iTunes by asking Apple to charge users $4.99 per episode. Talk about being greedy, sheesh. Apple, as a result declined this, and has stated that other media companies, such as FOX, The CW, ABC and CBS are quite fine with $1.99 and are on the catalog still.

Eddy Cue, who is the VP of iTunes, has stated this in reaction:

"We are disappointed to see NBC leave iTunes because we would not agree to their dramatic price increase, We hope they will change their minds and offer their TV shows to the tens of millions of iTunes customers."


Nevertless, the NBC aired shows will still be on iTunes up until the end of this year.

Just fooling around with Photoshop. Wanted to create something in between Leopard and Tiger. A little iPhone inspiration also helped.

I was going to change the top menubar, and redesign the spotlight menu...but got lazy, procastinated...and then gave up. lol. Then I got an idea...and then went back and re-did them as well.

Icons: Ekisho by Jonas + Mac OS X Cats2 by Susumu
Wallpaper in Spotlight: Me (search my profile here for Hyperflous)

I love working on this, I'll probably update this "ficticious" desktop, probably even well after Leopard gets here, lol.

here is the original desktop shot from my MBP:

New Mac OS X Leopard 9A527 Gallery

29 August 2007 - 12:19 AM

Think Secret has recently posted screenshots of the new Leopard build, with in-depth menus and dialog boxes. You can check out the entire gallery here:

http://www.thinksecr...s/leopard9a527/

Notice how some of the icons have insane detail to them. For example, take a look closely at the "address book" icon, and you'll see the leather texture, as well as the texture of the side page flap perfectly detailed. It is clear that these icons were designed to be viewed in 512pix glory.

Let's have a discussion. Visually, what do you readers think? Has Leopard shown clear signs of maturity over it's introduction build, as well as previous builds? What do you like about the UI, and what do you dislike?

Mac OS X Leopard 9A527

25 August 2007 - 02:53 AM

The verions seem to be coming pretty quickly as the day for going gold approaches. Apple has just seeded another build of Leopard to developers, this time it's 9A527. There seems to be only a short list of changes/fixes, when compared to the previous builds.

Apple is still actively seeking developer input in certain key areas of the OS. They began this input in the previous build, and are continuing it onto this one as well.
