Apple "Office News"

anonymous writes "Meeting Info:
"Unfortunately due to undisclosed problems the Mac OSX 10.0.5 Update has been delayed. We expect the update to be available to public users by the 6th June at the latest."


"DVD playback is included but is undocumented and the DVD software player is unfinished (beta version) but functional"


"...please emphasis to your staff that Apple has no future plans to buy Palm as reported in the press...."


Rumors In the Office: (not comfirmed)

  • Apple Is going to buy Palm (I don't agree)

  • Apple is developing a Newton /palm based PDA which will include new 'Drag and Drop' file transfer / hotsync software for Mac. ( I agree!!)

  • iPicture (part of the iTools network) is near completion ( I have no idea, don't work with that lot, and haven't been told anything...)

  • Apple is re-designing the G4, transparent plastic will not be included in the design-instead metal will be used following the design of the TiBook. ( I agree)
