New Apple Crates...
Apple introduced new iMac models today...
They're very nice, but I'll stick with using my 32" HDTV as my screen and my tower till next year, I think. That Magic Mouse looks really swell though.
I may have to drop some coin on that...

Geez Hunter, being the Apple Kool-Aid drinker you completely ignored reporting the news of Verizon's attacks against Apple by announcing their new Motorola/Google phone called Droid that aggressively attacks the iPhone with its name-calling marketing smears of "iDon't." This is sure to upset a lot of iPhone users who were expecting Apple to team-up with Verizon for the roll-out of 4G but will never happen now that Verizon has proclaimed themselves bitter rivals of Steve Jobs, inc. Looks like Apple's biggest mistake was going with AT&T, and that's a bad call they will be regretting for years to come.
Even more disappointing is the fact that Apple STILL won't support Blu-ray in their Macs. Apple has been a member of the Blu-ray consortium since 2006 and has done absolutely nothing to support disc-based HD media authoring and burning. Do they really think people are fooled by their 720p HD downloads from iTunes and AppleTV to think we don't care about higher quality optical media storage that BD offers consumers? Shame on you Steve Jobs and Apple. For a company that has prided itself on being at the forefront of technology they are quickly losing traction.
Did Motorola get permission from Luca$film to license the name "Droid" because I'm pretty sure they own the trademark on the name and LFL is notorious for going after anyone who uses their trademarks without a license. This technology war could get interesting pretty fast.
Star Wars term is "Droid" which is taken from the word "Android" and Lucas doesn't own that term.
Google's phone is named Android. They have nothing to worry about. Remember when Disney tried to sue everyone back in 82 that were using the word "Tron" in their name. It didn't work then and wouldn't work now.
And by phone I mean the software for the phone...
And yeah, I like Apple quite a bit. Duh. And judging by the quarterly report they released the other day, so do a lot of other people.
Steve Jobs has something against Blu-Ray, I believe. What exactly I don't know. Perhaps he feels it's going to be overtaken by digital content. Not sure.
Trademark or not isn't the issue. The fact that Apple has contracted with ATT&T which continues to alienate its customers with bad customer service and exorbitant fees, dropped calls and persistent 3G network connectivity issues is the thorn in Apple's side. They really need to drop AT&T when the contract expires next year and go with a better carrier service like Verizon but it looks like that won't happen now that Verizon has unexpectedly turned the tables against them.
And STILL no bluray macs? What the hell are they smoking in Cuppertino?
Honor, "there?" Really? You truly are a shit writer.
>>>Honor, "there?" Really? You truly are a shit writer.<<<
You truly are oblivious to how critiquing writing that can be edited with no trace of the previous edit can make you look like an douche bag. Also, "shit writer" is broken English there, Emerson.
There's a reason why they are called Grammer Nazis. Nobody likes them. Dude, get a life! It's re quality of the writing that matters, and Honor's is really good.
And see, Honor, I'm coming to your defense. Though I do hate Macs.
Really? People are whining about punctuation and grammar? You truly are an imbecile.
You can't be perfect, it's all right you don't like Apples. Now, if you don't like Oranges we've got a problem...
I'm with you, Hunter - the new Mouse would be sweet with my MacBookPro. Bluetooth, multitouch, laser - nice!
Oh and those Droid promos do give a Lucas disclaimer for use of the term 'Droid'.
The quality of Honor's writing is terrible.
"Shit writer" isn't broken English when I mean that he's a "writer of shit."
If the quality of his writing is terrible, why do you torture yourself by coming here?
Unfortunately, it's part of my job. Honor can check the IP address if you need verification.
So your job is to look for writers of shit? What a shit job.
My job is to monitor Disney rumor and commentary sites. Some of them -- like this one -- suck. But we're trying to track down Honor's sources, so reading continues..
To anonymous "supposed Disney employee" above,
first of all if you REALLY were a Disney employee that was trolling for Disney, why would you tell us that?!?!
Second of all, why on earth would Disney want to squash all these obsesive Disney websites? These help Disney in the long run.
>>>"Shit writer" isn't broken English when I mean that he's a "writer of shit."<<<
Ancient Japanese proverb, or just random douchebaggery? Maybe a little of both.
Sure Anonymus, you're someone who works for Disney. Ok!
This is really Johnny Depp posting!
Almost as unclever as Honor. Almost.
Please to meet you Mr. Depp.
Yes, because "shit writer" was pure comedic genius.
"But we're trying to track down Honor's sources, so reading continues.."
Really? Do tell? Well then, by all means go right ahead and keep reading...
And good luck.
Reminds me of that scene in Dark Knight when Coleman Reese tries to blackmail Lucius Fox and says he wants ten million dollars every year for the rest of his life or he'll reveal the identity of Batman and Lucius calmly says to him "Let me get this straight. You think your client, one of the wealthiest, most powerful men in Gotham City, is secretly a vigilante who spends his nights beating criminals to a pulp and your plan is to blackmail this person? Good luck."
I'd love to see the look on this anonymous' face right about now when he realizes just what a complete douchebag he's made himself look like. I bet he looks just like Coleman Reese.
I wasn't trying to be funny. Honor does. And fails.
Laugh it up, you piece of garbage
I'm not blackmailing Honor. I'm just doing part of my job.
Just doing your job?
Wow, where do you apply to be an asshole?
I have no clue, since that's not my job. If I'm coming across as one, I certainly apologize.
"I have no clue, since that's not my job. If I'm coming across as one, I certainly apologize."
Seriously? You think calling someone a "Shit Writer" and then calling Honor "a piece of garbage" doesn't make you come off a complete @sshole?
Do please STFU.
Dude, let's totally tear this dude a new one. What's his freaking problem, anyways?
Honor's like totally the best ever. I don't know why anyone would come on here to complain.
Che Wha and Corruption (thank God that prick's gone) and Spokker -- what's their deal.
We should totally burn down their houses! YEAH!
Some anonymous just stole my name! I've been hacked -- help help help!
Honor, please make the bad people stop hacking our names. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE.
My username is @sshole. Since you're the administrator of this publication, can you get stop someone from hacking?
I'm begging you!
spokkerhaterhonorlover? Wow, Corruption I liked your old name better.
You really should get help, really.
I'm not Corruption. I really like Honor. I'm hoping that he'll get rid of people like Corruption, since he seems to have eliminated him. Spokker and the like suck. They need to go away.
What would make you think that I'm some jerk like that?
@Anonymous (yeah you),
If it truly is your job (possible, but unlikely due to your apparent inability to focus on your work) to read these blogs and track down sources (Pretty difficult unless an anonymous poster decides to slip some clue to their identity), you’re doing a pretty lousy job of it. While it may be possible that a source might respond here, I would imagine his real sources contact him directly.
As I haven’t seen you “applying” your “job” on other blogs and discussion boards, your claim seems unlikely. So, in spite of your claim, it’s more likely that you are just a hostile troll (something that you seem to be exceedingly consistent at, here at least), and an arrogant one at that.
Anyway, bottom line, if I had hired you to provide the service you claim, I’d fire you for doing a poor job, unless, of course, you were actually hired to harass BlueSkyDisney.
