Submission + - Safari EULA forbids installation on windows/linux (googlepages.com)

Whiney Mac Fanboy writes: "The Register is reporting that the windows version Apple's Safari Web browser has an interesting catch in the EULA. You're forbidden to install it on Windows. This is the same browser that Apple slips in as an 'update' to iTunes. The license was last updated six months ago — proof that noone (even the authors) read an EULA."

Submission + - Apple's economy with the trutch on specifications

Whiney Mac Fanboy writes: "Apple recently unveiled the Time Capsule, a wireless backup device. Apple advertised the product as containing a server grade Hard Drive. However, as CrunchGear has noted, when an early adaptor tooks their Time Capsule apart, they found a Hitachi Deskstar HDD inside — the desktop version of Hitachi's UltraStar server range."

Submission + - Apple Founder slams iPhone, AppleTV, macBook air. (googlepages.com)

Whiney Mac Fanboy writes: "On a recent visit to Australia, Apple founder Steve 'Woz' Wozniak has given an interview in which he comments on the 'dissapointing' iPhone, citing the lack of 3G support and adding that other 3G phones have a good battery life. He carries a Motorolla phone to make up for the iPhone's shortcomings. On the macBook Air: "I don't think it's going to be a hit...I don't feel it's a benefit if you have to carry the Air plus a DVD player plus a couple of extra dongles to connect to Ethernet things and also maybe an extra hard disk to carry your music. On AppleTV: "My life is way too global and unpredictable for that [24-hour time limit to watch shows] — I'll get interrupted by something and I won't finish it; I don't want to have to pay again." He also noted AppleTV's poor video playback quality for youtube content."

Submission + - Linus pans OSX, HFS+

CurlyG writes: Apple's much-touted new operating system, OS X Leopard, is in some ways worse that Windows Vista, says the founder of the Linux open source project, Linus Torvalds. Torvalds was in Melbourne last week for the linux.conf.au conference and was invited to pass judgement on OS X versus Windows Vista in a wide-ranging interview. "I don't think they're equally flawed — I think Leopard is a much better system," he said. "(But) OS X in some ways is actually worse than Windows to program for. Their file system is complete and utter crap, which is scary."
