    I'm surprised it took Apple this long to do those C&D's

    Only Preview and Dictionary though...

    I'd love to be able to buy dictionaries in different languages though as AI wrote in their preview Apple had done with Japanese. This would be reason to buy Leopard alone.

    Interesting they pulled two apps that use 3rd party licenses.

    Adobe and Webster.

    I don't think they objected to the pics being there. But I could imagine if there was still something new to these apps (like buying dictionaries, etc.) that Apple would take this action. I mean considering that Leopard is only a couple of weeks away, if there is nothing new why even bother?

    Edit that..The dictionary is Oxford not Webster.


    I think I know why now..

    But can't say.

    Interestingly enough, both articles are still in the forums (without pictures). I'm not linking due to legal ramifications.

    Thanks...in fact Dictionary is already great, and from what I've seen of Leopard's improvements, its getting even better. I love the Safari integration with Control+Command+D already, and I'm hoping the new stuff will be just as cool...

    Other than that Webster's dictionary is from a Christian point of view? My guess is that's why they didn't use it.

    I think he meant he knows why the article was retracted, not why Webster's wasn't used...

    Oh gotcha, must've read that wrong. :eek:

    But yeah, I can see why it got redacted after reading the articles. Some nice new features. :D

    Didn't know you were an ADC member. Fair enough. Although I sure would like to know whether I am on to something... :)

    I'm Bummed Because I Overlooked Those Articles Were There

    I missed both of those articles while they were up. I sure hope they republish them after Leopard ships. I'd like to get the third party explanations of both those applications' additional features since I use them a lot of the time. :(

    Same here. I skimmed the Preview one but I missed Dictionary article.
    I'm using Panther and I'm excited for Control+Command+D!

    Thanks, I was about to quote myself. I'm surprised that statement got missed.

    ^ Freely Available? More like Apple Legal didn't realize the articles were also posted in the forums! Just because they specifically didn't say to take them down and AI left them up doesn't mean MacRumors (Arn) can't get an email from Apple telling him to delete your post.

    I agree, the Preview 4.0 review was alarmingly amazing! It looks like Apple will be shoving so many features down our throats with this new version, I'm looking forward to gagging. --Wait... that doesn't sound the slightest bit right...
