February 2006 Archives

The server here has been upgraded from 10.4 to 10.4.5. I was a little apprehensive about this update as I didn't have a chance to test prior to performing it, but everything went well, Postfix kept chugging, web services uninterrupted, other miscellaneous non-standard compiled code went well. Looks like Apple didn't stomp on anything that I'd upgraded. ;)

The big hangup was an issue with Carbon Copy Cloner, under 10.4, it wasn't able to clone my drive due to an authentication issue, normally I'd clone my drive and test out the upgrade first, so I just had to chance it. The main reason I needed to upgrade was 10.4 apparently had some issue that would keep log files from rotating properly, and possibly other scheduled tasks from running, so it was high time to get that issue fixed.

Hot rumor floating around (again), several big Palm investors seem to want this to happen, but nothing brewing in the Apple camp that has been leaked yet...

I've said for a while now that Palm could use some help, an Apple takeover would certainly help them out, and could give their products a bit more flash than they have currently.

Way back in December '04, I wrote about the possibility of an Apple branded cell phone, and as we all know this turned out to be the Motorola ROKR. It did not include any iPhoto integration as the original rumor went, but still turned out to be a nice phone, though not branded by Apple.

Now, some months after this, Nokia announced that it would be bundling a new browser based on Sarari with their (excellent) Series 60 phones, thanks to help from Apple. I'm frankly surprised that this didn't spur another round of rumors at the time. But now, whispers are again being heard...

Motorola is now shipping their second iTunes phone, as before only Cingular is picking up the new SLVR L7 model here in the US. Pretty sharp looking, thinner than their RAZR, looks very similar to the RAZR, but it isn't a flip phone, which is nice to see. I've never been a fan of flip phones, so it's nice to see some decent models in this form factor again.

I had been looking for a new phone for my wife, and she was leaning towards the ROKR, but this might be her next phone. Now, if only Amazon would get with the program and start selling it...
