MSBNC: OS X needs work
MSNBC's review of Mac OS X says the OS X operating system still needs much improvement: "OS X is a lot like the Public Beta I played with a while back. I've encountered a number of new problems, and I now know for sure that 128MB is not enough memory for a gratifying computing experience. OS X holds a lot of promise, but there are some improvements I'd like to see before I recommend it to Mac user."
Reader: Toast 5.01 fixes Disc Burner issues
Joe Bossalini passed along some observations about the recently released Toast 5.01 update:
"I installed the Toast 5.0.1 update yesterday on my G4 450/DP with and Adaptec 2930 SCSI card and external Plextor SCSI drive. While the drive previously worked flawlessly with Toast and iTunes, it never worked with Disc Burner (which Apple confirmed as correct behavior). Well, it looks like the Toast 5.0.1 CD Reader extension worked some magic, because after the update I happened to pop a blank CD in the burner and the Finder asked me how I wanted to format it! I was able to make both an ISO and HFS+ disc with Disc Burner without any problems. Hats off to Roxio for fixing an Apple problem!!"

QT 5.01 available for Classic Mac OS
Craig Isley and many others confirm the availability of QuickTime 5.01 for Mac OS 8/9, as reported late yesterday:
"I have confirmed what I just learned in the MacNN forum that if you run the
QuickTime 4 Updater in Mac OS 9.1 it detects, downloads, and installs
version 5.0.1 of QuickTime.
"The installer warns that if you want to use QuickTime's Pro features you
have to buy a new key for QuickTime 5 Pro. No official word from Apple as
to exactly what new features QuickTime 5 Pro has compared to QT 4 Pro - to
justify the upgrade cost. Actually, there's no mention of the release of the final version of QuickTime 5 for 'Classic' Mac OS 9 at all on Apple's website."
