  • "6 Reasons Apple Is So Successful" ["Most people have a working understanding of the fact that Apple lost the PC wars to Microsoft, and only nominally understand that when Apple created the iPod and then the iPhone, the company started to go in a new direction. And anyone who's gone into an Apple store knows full well that Apple's customer service and stores represent the gold standard for selling and supporting tech gadgets. But beyond that, the reasons why Apple is really successful are still a mystery to many."]  Techland 8:25 AM

  • "Generally speaking, if you have multiple licensed copies of software that permits only one installation (per license), then of course you can run multiple instances of that software on the same machine. Wording of licenses rarely prohibits running of other licensed software, and Apple's does not explicitly prohibit their software from being run beside or 'underneath' other copies of properly licensed software. Every instance in the license that I can see where it refers to 'one', it is clearly claiming that the single license covers a single running instance. It does not seem to explicitly prohibit multiple licenses for multiple instances of the software." MacInTouch 8:59 AM
  • "There is no way to determine what is the best virus/malware protection for Mac. So I run... ClamXav, Symantec, and Intego. With the drive-by Java malware, I think we are in a new era. Of course I have no sympathy for anyone who doesn't have backups. I run Time Machine and Carbon Copy Cloner for a full backup every two weeks. I run this strategy for all my Macs at home, so the worst thing is I lose two weeks of work if Time Machine fails and my hard drive gets hosed." MacInTouch 8:58 AM
