Apple reportedly plans ARM shift for laptops

Thumb Up

Remember they once ran on PowerPC

Unless I am mistaken, Apple's OS once ran on PowerPC, so they are no strangers to supporting different CPU architectures with the same API.

Another choice.

You presented two possible choices here:

"But then it either has to convert the range into iOS machines, to run existing apps, or develop yet another emulator to allow new Air buyers to run their existing OS X apps. Forcing them to re-buy new, ARM-compiled versions of apps seems a very unlikely strategy."

1) Emulate existing apps

2) Pay for recompiled apps

If the ARM user market is big enough to encourage software houses to support it, a further, more palatable option, is that you pay once and run the version compiled for the CPU you happen to be using.

Icelandic ash cloud to keep UK skies closed 'til Saturday

Conspiracy!

Is this Iceland's response to the UK government's demands to repay their bank debts?

I smell a conspiracy... they must have got hold of some of that lost Russian fissile material and blown up the Volcano on purpose.

And all over a few frozen prawns... (or am I confusing them with Kwiksave?)
