Apple Drops PowerTalk Until Copland

Apple Drops PowerTalk Until Copland -- According to MacWEEK, Apple has confirmed it will be moving away from PowerTalk as its core communications solution until the next major revision of the Mac OS is available, citing very low adoption by users and developers. PowerTalk 1.1 will ship this quarter, but won't re-appear until a wholly-rewritten version based on OpenDoc and Internet technologies (like Glenn Anderson's Apple Internet Mail Server) ships with Copland.
