Apple Introduces Mac OS X Universal Logo -- With the Intel Core Duo-based iMac available and the MacBook Pro to follow shortly, Apple has announced a new logo program that developers can use to identify universal binary programs that contain both PowerPC and Intel code (most PowerPC-only programs will run on the Intel-based Macs thanks to Apple's Rosetta technology, but performance will likely suffer somewhat). The Mac OS X Universal Logo Program comes with a license agreement and usage guidelines that are extremely specific, so I'm not going to risk Apple's legal wrath to display the logo on the TidBITS Web site; instead, check it out on Apple's site to see what you should look for in the months to come as more of the software we all use starts to come in universal binary versions.
