    >>Apple to push videoconferencing with new iChat, camera
    By Nick dePlume, Publisher and Editor in Chief

    June 4, 2003 - At last year's meeting of Apple shareholders, Steve Jobs was asked about videoconferencing and what it meant to Apple. "Stay tuned," he said. Sources now say that Apple is on the verge of offering videoconferencing functionality to users with an upgrade to its iChat software.

    Sources confirmed to Think Secret that the next version of iChat, code-named "Viceroy," will feature videoconferencing built-in. Additionally, the new iChat will reportedly boast support for a number of other IM protocols.

    While many specific details are largely unconfirmed, multiple sources also suggest that the company plans to announce some sort of video camera to complement the video-enabled iChat.

    Insiders speculated that one Apple project, known as Q8, could be the camera. Internally, Q8 is known as "iSight," lending credence to this possibility.

    At the same time, Apple is reportedly developing an iPhoto update code-named "Memento." One source said that a camera release could tie into an iPhoto update as well, affecting the iLife apps.
    Apple plans to wrap up development on Q8, Viceroy, and Memento by the Worldwide Developers Conference on June 23. While Apple's specific release plans are unclear, sources said that the company would probably announce the videoconferencing solution at or before WWDC.<<

    >>Future of Internet Explorer for Mac in question, says Microsoft
    03 06 03

    Unsurprisingly, Microsoft's decision to phase out standalone versions of Internet Explorer for Windows hints at what's to come for the Mac OS X incarnation of the company's Web browser.

    "As part of the OS (operating system), IE will continue to evolve, but there will be no future standalone installations. IE6 SP1 is the final standalone installation," Microsoft's Brian Countryman said in a recent interview, which consequently led to this CNET story.

    Although Microsoft could not commit to any absolute statements at this time, the company indicated that the decision is not Windows-centric. <<

    "[The decision will most likely impact] Internet Explorer across the board, regardless of the platform," a Microsoft spokesperson told Spymac.

    The news is not expected to impact MSN for Mac OS X, which the company says features a "new rendering engine" developed for the service.

    Spekulation um angebliches neues Apple-Produkt "Pal"
    Für mächtig Wirbel hat der Artikel von TopTechTips gesorgt, in dem ein neues Produkt von Apple angedeutet wird. Die Macher der Seite hatten eine grüne Schachtel von Apple in Aqua-Grafik entdeckt, auf der der Schriftzug Green Light... the Internet... Forget discs. Forget synching... Pal takes your desktop and puts... your fingertips using Mac OS X 10.3... can take your life on the road... use your computer and Pal to fix... problems. So what are you waiting... see the light steht. Es ist allerdings unklar, was damit gemeint ist. Es könnte es ein Programm sein, welches .mac um ein Vielfaches einfacher macht und erweitert. Dafür spricht, dass eine zu Apple gehörige Seite von einem Internet-Dienst schreibt, der die Erreichbarkeit der eigenen Daten von jedem Ort aus ermöglicht.

    Zweifelhaft ist allerdings die Art des Fotos, da es sich auf Grund der Auflösung nicht um einen Screenshot handeln kann, es aber auch völlig unklar ist, wer die Bilder angefertigt haben soll und warum wichtige Teile abgeschnitten sind.
    Sollte der Server der inzwischen stark frequentierten Seite nicht erneut zusammengebrochen sein, können Sie über den angegebenen Link Bilder der ominösen Schachtel betrachten. Machen Sie sich ein eigenes Bild. Wir würden uns freuen, wenn Sie uns Ihre Vermutung mitteilen!
