  1. if this “improvement” to iChat doesn’t include support for buddylists, I’m going to sh*t a brick. ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”grin” style=”border:0;” />

  2. Apple listed the PowerBook 17 on its Web site two months before it shipped to customers. So maybe 10.2.5 isn’t shipping until WWDC! ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”smile” style=”border:0;” />

  3. MDN said “any minute.” You’d think someone calling themselves “cognizant” would realize that the operative word is “any,” as well as the fact that the CD is listed by Apple as shipping in 1-2 days. Sheesh!

  4. Pete, there is no such thing as “the operative word.” The sentence read, “Mac OS X 10.2.5 due any minute,” which meant it would be up shortly, not at “any” minute out of the infinite number of available minutes. It finally appeared hours later. So when it comes to be cognizant, you might want to look up the word and stop embarassing yourself in public. Pete.
