The television will be revolutionized

Digital TV means crystal clear reception from an $8 wire loop antenna. It means beautiful sharp images a meter across with no visible scan lines. It also means occasionally having to reboot your television. It’s just the way things are. I have to reboot my cellphone every day or so, or a memory leak eventually causes it to crash. I have to reboot the printer once a month or so. Our answering machine has needed rebooting a few times, too, and the other day I rebooted the car.

New iMac

The iMac appears perfect. No dead pixels that I can see, no loose screen arm, no problem powering up… Sometimes reading Macintouch I think that there must be another Apple Computer releasing completely different products. Like a version of OS X that’s unbearably slow, and a DVD player that won’t play DVDs.
