Even though I can't play the HD videos I keep them (the free ones) and burn them to disc or store on and external hard drive.
They update the software where the money is. Kind of pathetic but brilliant from a marketing point of view.
Have you tried CorePlayer yet? I bought it a while ago because it was the only way I could play HD animes on my Powerbook G4 1.67 ghz. It's $20 but I encourage any PPC user to buy it because it does miracles compared to VLC or quicktime. Maybe if enough PPC users buy it, they will still support us on the next update?...
Apple if you are hearing this, lot's of iOs users are using tiger, please launch a new itunes for tiger or a "patch" for the older itunes to work with the new ipods/iOs .
While another Tiger version would be nice, I think Apple has killed all support for it. The last few versions of iTunes for Tiger shipped with replacement frameworks because the ones in Tiger where so outdated.
That's impressive. I might have to not sell my G4 mini and use it for music instead. I'm impressed Apple continues to support it like this... it's very un-Appleish of them.
They have PPC version of OSX Mountain Lion made "just in case" also so they drop these little clues for us.
Maybe MacPro will be RISC based machine in the future.. IBM Power7 processors are way more powerful than any Xeons out there!
ARM is RISC too..
IIRC, it wasn't that PPC processors couldn't be delivered fast enough that Apple switched, but mainly because the G5 couldn't be made efficient enough for mobile usage, and they were kind of stuck at a dead end on that one. (I could be wrong, though.)
