I'm not going to get into build quality really, though both felt essentially the same to me. I don't get the arguement that the dell is made out of plastic. The macbook I used was an entirely plastic shell too, it was just all silver instead of the silver/white combo used on my e1705.

Apple has never made a silver laptop that is built from plastic. Their plastic laptops are white and black. The silver laptops are made from Aluminum (today) or Titanium (2001-2004).

If you look at Vista's features, Microsoft agrees, and is copying a lot of the security the Mac has.

I don't know where you get your information from, but MS is not 'copying' the Mac... since it has NO security out of the box.  OSX is based on unix, so any underlying technical stability or techniques stem from that.  I'm not saying it's a bad thing, that's just how it is.

Microsoft is copying Apple in that default Apple users are not root users, and passwords are required for any potentially damaging activity. The user on Mac OS X has to authenticate and make conscious decisions to allow software to run than the user on Windows XP does. The user on Windows Vista will have an experience similar to that of Mac OS X.

All the security stuff on the Mac is great.  I don't want to have to run firewalls, antispyware, and anti-virus apps on my PC.

Actually, the Firewall is on by default, and it would be a bad idea to turn it off. You're right that Macs generally don't need antivirus or antispyware software.

- Expose is great, I've used it for a few hours, and I love getting a zoom out of all the Windows you have running.

Hold shift when you Expose for some fun eye candy.

- Can't figure out why I can't get a download to install, definitely some growing pains.

What's the issue here? If you can describe it, I can likely help you "fix" it.

That's more a matter of being used to a customization than an actual function of the OS.

The functionality of the graphical interface is part and parcel of the functionality of the operating system. One of the reasons that I consider Mac OS is superior to Windows is the simpler, more consistent user interface. Of course it goes well beyond that. The Core services built into Mac OS X make life so much easier. Applications in a Mac OS X environment, good applications that is, integrate with each other in a way that they just don't on Windows.

In Safari, typing in a text entry box, I write my last name, and it is flagged as a misspelled word. No matter, I just tell the spellchecker to learn the word — and it puts it into a system wide dictionary that any application can share, so now my name is a known word in my word processor from Nisus, in my outliner from Omni, in my mail program from Apple, in my data organizer from BareBones, etc. Interaction with any program that links into the system spelling service improves the spelling service for all my applications.

Likewise, Mac applications from various vendors seamlessly share contact data, core sets of image manipulation abilities, songs and playlists from iTunes, photographs from iPhoto, and can interact with each other through the Services Menu.

An example: My third-party time management program that lets me keep track of what to bill freelance clients integrates in with several other Apple and non-Apple programs on my Mac. It pulls contact information from and write updates to it to my Address Book. It adds important tasks and due dates directly to the system's calendar program, iCal. It integrates the CoreText services to give me a very capable, built-in word processor to print invoices from. It renders certain charts and graphs using the built in CoreImage and WebCore functionality of the OS. And it does all these things just by linking into built-in, exposed Apple APIs.

Spotlight instant searching is integrated throughout any program that wants it, and into the main interface, and is part of the kernel. As all file operations pass through it, it is an always-up-to-date catalogue of the contents and metadata associated with all the files on my Mac. I can basically find anything instantly, and none of the "workalike" programs for Windows are nearly as accurate or seamless.

I've heard people say they 'enjoy' using OSX (or MacOS) more, but I've never really heard it quantified.  Is there anything about the OS itself you like which more?

I like that the OS lets me write PDF and rip PostScript files directly to PDF or EPS without third party software. Windows fans have to shell out for Acrobat or dig up a third party program for functionality that's bundled into the Print function of every Mac. I use this all the time.

I like that virtually all modern Mac software is just one icon — the files for the program are wrapped into one easy to install, easy to throw out, logically named object. There's no need for a Start Menu, which exists to hide the complexity of the way Windows applications are organized, when your Applications folder is almost entirely just icons for your programs.

I like that Apple is quick to update their software. They roll out "service packs" remarkably fast. They're smaller than Windows's giant service releases in part because they're more frequent. In the last 15 months, Apple's patched and polished Tiger seven times, not counting security updates, etc. On the other side, Microsoft lets flagship software like Internet Explorer literally rot for years, updating only after loud public outcry.

I like that Apple hardware and software are designed to work hand in hand. This contributes both to the Mac OS's superior stability, but also lets Apple move their system forward more quickly. PC vendors struggled with USB until Microsoft finally got support in Win 95 OSR2. Apple was able to make that move at the drop of a hat, since it's all designed to work together.

While not perfect, Apple is less likely than Microsoft to try to lock you into their formats. By default, iTunes can rip songs in both MP3 and AAC, both of which are industry standard formats. In Windows XP, Microsoft crippled Media Player so as to try to force you to rip songs into WMA. Folks upgrading to Windows XP back in the day also got to enjoy the fact that Microsoft didn't include a DVD-Video decoder, either. Classy.

I like that Safari actually renders web pages properly, as opposed to the lousy, non-compliant rendering performed by Internet Explorer. I like that iChat lets me connect to both my AIM and Gtalk buddy lists, and is part of the OS.

I like the classy fit-and-finish of the OS. Windows XP, with its bright blue and green, is garish. Windows Vista has gone overboard on translucent windows, making the same mistake Apple did with Mac OS X version 10.0, only on a much larger scale.

There are things I like about Windows, too. I really like the new Office 2003 interface, and I'm interested to see how the next release of Office for Mac adapts its UI. The Windows XP Start Menu is a very clean and organized interface, in many ways similar to the Dock in Mac OS X. And I like the games selection on Windows, though games are the last thing I spend time doing on my computer. I have several great games on my Mac, but I rarely play any of them (ironically, the one game I play regularly on my Mac is a Windows game through Virtual PC that doesn't play well on my Windows laptop, but plays fine on the Mac).

Here's an example of some of the cooler Macbook features.  The trackpad lets you use two fingers, one to use to move the mouse pointer, the other to scroll around the screen.  It works suprising well, maybe the first trackpad on a laptop that doesn't suck.  Of course, there is only one button (stupid Macs smile ).

Run software update and grab Mac OS X v.10.4.7. Then check your Mouse preferences in System Preferences. On your MacBook Pro, 10.4.7 should activate a feature that comes out of the box on the MacBook, the ability to hold down two fingers and press the mouse button or tap two fingers on the pad in order to "right-click."

Now they need to add support for that to BootCamp.

Glad you like your MacBook Pro. So far, my MacBook (low end white model) is living up to the standard set by its predecessor, my four-year old, abused and loved iBook. Once my finances are in better shape, I'll be pushing this to two gigabytes of RAM, and might look into throwing a copy of Windows onto it, as well — though there no Windows software I really need that isn't on the Mac as well.

I wonder how many years it will take Apple to ditch OSX?

Why would Apple throw away their market differentiation? The vast majority, if not nearly all, of those of us who buy Apple machines do so to get Mac OS X. Without Mac OS X, not only would I not buy Apple computers, I'd be much less happy with any computer that I did buy. Going back to Windows every day at the office is a painful experience.

1331  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Superman Returns! on: June 29, 2006, 06:49:03 PM
I'll be posting a longer review on my website but for now I can sum my feelings up with one word: wow.

Okay, more than one word: This is how I like my superhero movies -- dramas with action punches, not boring films that are nothing but action and explosions. This is a true sequel to the first two Superman films, and has been aptly described as "lyrical." It had me from the opening credits.

The backstory behind this film is a decade of false-starts and near disasters. I wish someone had been making a documentary of the agony that was Superman V --> Superman Reborn --> Superman Lives --> Superman Returns.

Also, Superman Returns posted the eighth-best Wednesday opening in history, just a bit off last year's July 4 spectacle, War of the Worlds, and considerably above Batman Begin's mid-week bow. $21 million on Wednesday is a good head of steam going into a four-day holiday weekend.

I don't understand how Mac people think having web content on the desktop is "their thing".  Windows has had "Active Desktop" since Win98.

What are you talking about here? There's nothing on the Mac that's remotely like Active Desktop, which embedded HTML stuff into the desktop background of your machine. Dashboard, if that's what's at issue here, is basically a modern riff on the old Mac Desk Accessories from 1984.

Heck, Apple's operating systems didn't even have native tcp/ip support in 1998.

Not true. Macs could connect to TCP/IP networks since the early 1990s, and the TCP/IP extension software was included with the Mac OS starting no later than System 7.5 in early 1995.

1339  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Attack on Constitution planned on: June 16, 2006, 04:21:54 PM
There is very little threat of this actually occurring. Let's look at the text of the Constitution:

The Congress, whenever two thirds of both Houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose Amendments to this Constitution, or, on the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States, shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments, which, in either Case, shall be valid to all Intents and Purposes, as part of this Constitution, when ratified by the Legislatures of three fourths of the several States, or by Conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other Mode of Ratification may be proposed by the Congress; Provided that no Amendment which may be made prior to the Year One thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any Manner affect the first and fourth Clauses in the Ninth Section of the first Article; and that no State, without its Consent, shall be deprived of its equal Suffrage in the Senate.

So that's 34 states which would have to have their legislatures vote in favor of this convention.

Let's be frank: this is a ploy to help Republicans, as the Democratic Party is not corporately in favor of this crap but the not-so-Grand Old Party is. You can be fairly certain that this nonsense, should it move forward, would be approved in Republican-controlled legislatures (there are 20) and defeated in Democratic-controlled legislatures (there are 19) and likely defeated in the Democratic-controlled chamber of split legislatures (there are 10).

Even if the Republicans get it through their Legislatures and the one "non-partisan," unicameral legislature, they'd need to find 13 other legislatures to pass this nonsense. That's a long haul proposition in an environment when the "OMG, teh gays!" is a Republican political meme of diminishing returns (no bump for the GOP from this summer's amendment nonsense).

Add to that the fact that the Republicans are in danger of losing control of four or five more chambers (tilting, perhaps, the entire legislatures in Iowa and Montana against the GOP), and that the Democrats can undercut this effort with an appeal to the "states rights" mentality that the Republicans have spent decades spreading, and the road to ratification for this nonsense seems unnavigable.

Most of my interest in X-Men comes from the more recent Marvel Ultimates line. Growing up a DC kid, I've always found the continuity of the 616 Universe to be hard to follow, particularly the way the X-Men and the rest of the Marvel universe often seemed to have incompatible continuities.

I have to say, I find it rather insulting how so many people are claiming that it's a fact this movie is crap, or that, if you enjoyed it at all, you can't possibly be a fan of the X-Men from the comics.

Not all of us who are complaining about the gaping deficiencies in the script and direction of this film are denigrating those who liked the movie -- there's nothing wrong with likely a badly made movie, I like several badly made movies.

The comment I was replying to, however, was aimed specifically at those who didn't like the movie. It's entire point was to denigrate.

Surely you can see the difference between "this movie was poorly written, and was episodic with no narrative drive" and "only fanboy losers don't like this movie." One critiques the film, the other attacks other posters.

1347  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / X-Men 3 on: May 28, 2006, 09:30:27 PM
The gist of my opinion, from my review of the film:

A distressing mishmash of plot points, characters and CGI effects that swirl about brightly and loudly, Ratner’s pretentiously-named The Last Stand ultimate falls flat. It lacks the coherent story and momentum of the first two films, and is an unsatisfying conclusion to what should have been a phenomenal movie trilogy. While The Last Stand doesn’t fail on every level, it fails on enough of them to destroy any enthusiasm for a potential X-Men 4....

No super-hero franchise has ever maintained quality for more than two films. In the 1980s, Superman III failed to live up to the grandeur of its predecessors. In the 1990s, Batman Forever marked the return of campiness and the end of greatness for the Dark Knight’s franchise. Both series faltered in large part due to the departure of the directors from the original films. Sadly, the X-Men series has suffered the same fate. While the visual flair and action in the last act makes this a somewhat amusing summer popcorn flick, it’s not enough to make The Last Stand a satisfying X-Men movie. Fans of the series would do better to just stay home and rewatch X-Men United on DVD.

Season 4, the non-stop continuing arc roller-coaster, was my favorite season of Angel. I appreciated season 5, but a lot of it was somehow... bittersweet? It's a shame they all got rushed at the end. I think the series ended perfectly, however.

Buffy on UPN was certainly different. Season 6 might as well have been titled Buffy the Happiness Slayer. Season 7 started out so well, but then just floundered after the mid-season three parter, listlessly bounding about for something to do until the last five episodes, which were good, but could have been great if the rest of the season hadn't set up so many cool little things that they couldn't all be paid off in the end.

Though I liked that they had Xander and Andrew end up together. That was clearly the whole point of the season.

Regarding the time scale, nearly 7,000 Americans died at Iwo Jima, and the film adaption of it was released in 1949, about four years later. Not comparing the two events, but it was the first "true story" movie about a large loss of life that came to mind that I knew was made quickly after the fact.

I haven't seen the trailer, so I can't comment on the merits of this film, but I think that 9/11 is a reasonable topic for consideration through artwork, including fictional movies and books, etc.  

I'll see this movie at some point in the next few weeks, I'm sure. If done right, the film should be absolutely wrenching to watch. That's not necessarily bad. There's more to film than entertainment.

Braga and Berman, combined as Bermaga, were the ones that trainwrecked Star Trek.

I don't like this idea. I didn't like this idea when it was going to be Star Trek 7, and I don't like it anymore as Star Trek 11.

You want Captain Kirk and Spock? Okay, then: let's go all out -- do a real Star Trek movie, with new versions of the classic crew, but with no continuity connection with the established Star Trek universe. That could be interesting -- a Battlestar-esque reimaginging of the entire Star Trek canon: CGI Klingons, modern Episode III-style effects, the works. In fact, in a decade or so, that's a movie I would like to write.

But Dawson's Trek? It'll just fuck up continuity. Spock is like ten years older than Jim Kirk, but they're going to be in Starfleet academy together? Nonsense.

You know, one of the problems both Trek movie franchises have had was the absurd amount of time that the crews stayed together. The Next Generation crew was together for 14 YEARS and for the last seven not a single character received any rank promotion. How does that even make sense?

The Classic Trek movies, as great as they were, became even more plausible. Aside from the gaps between TOS and TMP and TMP and TWOK, the crew of the Enterprise worked together for 27 YEARS and by the end you had one ship where three officers held the rank of captain and three more were ranked commander. I suppose you could say they were at the ends of their careers and Starfleet let these great officers pick their assignment, but that much brass on one starship? It strains credulity.

But if they do this new movie, suddenly the core of that crew will have worked together for their almost their ENTIRE ADULT LIVES. What?!

I really love Star Trek. That's why I want it to go away for awhile. I've said it before, and until I see any reason to say otherwise, I'll continue to say it again:

Star Trek ended when Captain Sisko died.

I threw my vote to Lazenby, but only because he was in the one truly great Bond film, On Her Majesty's Secret Service.

If I had to ignore the quality of the movies and base solely on performance, I guess I'd go with Connery, even though he was way too blue collar and way, way too Scottish. Unfortunately, the others are all damaged, too: Moore was too goofy, Dalton was uneven in his two films, and there was never anything unique about Brosnan's Bond, he in no way made the role his own.

Dalton could have been great, had he done a few more films in the same style as The Living Daylights. No telling what Lazenby could have amounted to.

Casino Royale is intriguing. Though I'm increasingly in the camp of folks who think that they should go back to the Cold War and do the Bond films as period pieces -- without a central villain like Spectre or the Soviets that stand even when the individual villains fall, the Bond films have been lacking something special.
