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 update the software where the money is. Kind of pathetic but brilliant from a marketing point of view.

Nice!

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.
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?...

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 The last few versions of iTunes for Tiger shipped with replacement frameworks because the ones in Tiger where so outdated.

Leopard is nearly there too. Pretty sure the past 6 - 8 months I've only ever had iTunes updates and Safari 5.0.6 in June... it's rare for me to even touch software update now. Mostly everything I've turned off auto update checking due to apps and that wanting Intel versions.

Is it just me or 10.6 sounds like s*** compared to 10.4.1??? I tried the same songs on both versions, back to back, and sound was WAY better on 10.4.1. Sounds fuller, greater left-right pan (sound surrounds you more) and more bass.

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..

As far as there being another Power Based Mac, I highly doubt that. At least for consumer products, there are tons of advantages to X86 as far as support and compatibility goes, which is one of the primary reasons they switched over in the first place.

Texas, unfortunately.
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.)

I was referring to now about the power7 chips..

Does IBM currently have the production capability to keep Apple in chips along with it's other commitments?
