Perian 1.1. released (TUAW.com)

Feb 7th 2008 7:17PM I just tried to download perian from perian.org but the site seems to be down. Just thought I'd add that it's still available through macupdate.com

Gmail gets IMAP (Download Squad)

Nov 1st 2007 1:23PM I've still not got IMAP on my account, I keep checking but there's no action. I wonder how log it will take before they get it rolled out for everyone?

Starbucks launches record label (TUAW.com)

Mar 14th 2007 5:50AM I belive they can count Sir Paul McCartney among their signed artists. http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/showbiz/article-23388851-details/Macca+switches+record+labels+to+ensure+Heather+has+no+claim/article.do This is London reports that he has signed with the label in order to prevent Heather Mills recieving more money. His old label, Capitol, offered his a £25mn advance on his next for albums, but since it's an advance it's counted as current earning and therefore Mills would be able to claim it as part of the divorce settlement. So he is apparently signing up with Hear Music.

smcFanControl 2.0 supports all Intel Macs (TUAW.com)

Feb 16th 2007 6:09PM Just thought I would have a go with this on my 24" iMac since I had used previous versions on my girlfriends MacBook. i ran it and the fan speeds seemed ok, but the temperature was reporting as -127 degrees Celsius. Rather chilly I must say. So I think it would be fair to say some problems with certain Macs.

Disco hits 1.0 (TUAW.com)

Feb 12th 2007 1:47PM I have to admit I do like Disco. The UI is both slick and functional. Spandex is an innovative feature, and I do find it useful for keeping track of my volumes of stuff. However even now the product is out of beta I still get no smoke. Silly I know but I had kind of hoped the final release would have fixed this. Is anyone else seeing a smoke free Disco? I'm running on a 24" iMac with nVidia 7600GT graphics and am not seeing the Disco Inferno I hoped for.

Wikipedia battle over iPhone trademark (TUAW.com)

Jan 15th 2007 8:03PM @Brock
Yes I totally agree that the article which attracts the most attention should be the main entry with a hatnote pointing to the other article. I also agree that this should be decided based upon the article which attracts most readership, however Cisco do currently hold the trademark on the iPhone name (although I know that is up for dispute) therefore it would seem to make sense to leave the disambiguation page up.
It is biased to simply assume that most people will go looking for the Apple product. I would hazzard a guess that most people who look on Wikipedia for the word Apple are probably looking for Apple Inc, but that doesn't necessarily mean that Apple Inc should be the main entry. Besides readerhsip levels can change over time, a disambiguation page is an un-biased, neutral way of doing things, the way an encyclopaedia should be.

Wikipedia battle over iPhone trademark (TUAW.com)

Jan 15th 2007 7:29PM Well since Wikipedia touts its self as proper, legit encyclopaedia it would seem to make sense to do the disambiguation of the two products. Then the people who go looking for the 'iPhone' entry can decide for themselves exactly which one it was they were after.

MacHeist has begun, TUAW has 250 invites to give away (TUAW.com)

Nov 9th 2006 6:14PM Sounds fun, I'd like one please!

Apple Security Update 2006-004 released (TUAW.com)

Aug 1st 2006 8:49PM Sean, try doing the update in terminal. Start terminal, which you should find in Apps/Utilities, then in the terminal windows type without quotes
"sudo softwareupdate -ia"
Give you admin password and try doing the update that way. If that fails then I'm not sure what's up with your iMac
