TidBITS turns 20 years old today! We’re celebrating with a double elephant folio issue containing Adam’s thoughts about what makes TidBITS special, stories about how our staff members got started with TidBITS, and an extensive collection of memories from numerous Macintosh-industry friends. Oh, and don’t miss our drawing for $200 worth of an iPhone, iPod touch, or iTunes Gift Card! But rest assured that this issue isn’t all navel gazing, as Adam explains the iPad’s DHCP-related problems on large networks, Doug McLean summarizes what’s new in Adobe Creative Suite 5, and we cover last week’s solid update to the MacBook Pro line. All our notable software releases this week are from Apple, including Mac OS X 10.6.3 Combo Update 1.1, Mac OS X Server 10.6.3 Combo Update 1.1, Security Update 2010-003 (Snow Leopard), Security Update 2010-003 (Leopard), Server Admin Tools 10.6.3, 27-inch iMac EFI FW Update 1.0, MacBook Pro Software Update 1.3, and MobileMe Backup 3.2.
It's official! TidBITS turns 20 years old this week, and we're celebrating by giving away an iPhone, iPod touch, or iTunes Gift Card, and by sharing what makes TidBITS special for us.
Remember those real notebook computers that Apple makes? Like the MacBook Pro? Well, Apple has been working on them too, and the company has now released new 13-, 15-, and 17-inch models of the MacBook Pro, introducing new Intel processors, faster graphics performance, and better battery life, among much else.
Princeton University has identified a flaw in the iPad's DHCP client software that could cause problems in large enterprise networks.
Adobe has announced the impending release of Creative Suite 5, detailing a long list of major and minor changes that improve the suite's collaborative capabilities, photo and imaging tools, and overall performance.
Some TidBITS editors have written for the publication for nearly its entire history, while a few are relative newbies - this means you, Rich Mogull and Doug McLean. The staff peers into the past to remember how they were sucked into this venture, and what it has meant to them.
With TidBITS turning 20, we asked many friends and colleagues about their history with our little newsletter. The number and quality of replies has been overwhelming, and we're thrilled to share them.
Notable software releases this week include Mac OS X 10.6.3 Combo Update 1.1, Mac OS X Server 10.6.3 Combo Update 1.1, Security Update 2010-003 (Snow Leopard), Security Update 2010-003 (Leopard), Server Admin Tools 10.6.3, 27-inch iMac EFI FW Update 1.0, MacBook Pro Software Update 1.3, and MobileMe Backup 3.2.
While we were working on our 20th anniversary coverage all week, we still found a few minutes to keep up on the latest iPad news from Apple, Sprint, and Israel; to chuckle at a trenchant Tom Tomorrow comic and a tongue-in-cheek suggestion for how to print from an iPad; to note the shipment of the amusingly named Doxie scanner; and cheer for our own Glenn Fleishman's debut in Australian politics (via a quote, anyway).
