NPR radio show on Macs

NPR's Talk of the Nation has a feature on : "Over the years, the small beige box has undergone numerous transformations (think Bondi blue, ruby and sage.) Macintosh design has influenced everything from paper-clip holders to vacuums. NPR's Neal Conan and guests look at the 20-year history of the Macintosh and discuss how a 17-pound cube, a mouse and a smiley face changed the face of computing." Guests include Jeff Raskin. The 30-minute radio show can be heard via RealPlayer.

    RealAudio

    Enough with this realaudio c***, this is a piece about the Mac, can't they get a clue and setup Quicktime servers? The frickin server is FREE, what more do they want!
    s**** them and their damn pledge drives. They need all this money so they can pay for the realaudio server software I'll bet, f*** them.

    Happy 20th, Mac.

    And may Lance Ulanoff and most of the callers bash you. What a bunch of f****** crock. Ulanoff's comments are so yesterday and so slanted. I am not a "fanatic," but hearing s*** like this makes even moderates irate.

    Quicktime server

    Sure they can set up a Quicktime server, but they still have to pay for bandwidth. It seems that NPR gets support to offer Real and WMP, they tried QT but dropped it about 2 years ago.

    STFU, QuickTime whiners

    Oh, for Christ's sake -- there's a f****** MAC VERSION of RealPlayer, and it's FREE. Download it and shut up!

    Just be glad they use Real instead of WMP only MORON!

    Bemused

    I was bemused by the PC bigot who called in saying that Mac users seem defensive of their Macs and attack PCs any chance they get, but that PC users seem indifferent to the Mac. I am not sure on what plantet this person has been hybernating, but all you have to do is pull out a PowerBook in a corporate IT department and you can see just how "indifferent" PC users are to Macs and Mac users. That is like saying that Cardinals fans hate the Cubs, but Cubs fans are indifferent to the Cardinals.

    1984 movie

    Hey did anyone else notice that the 1984 movie has undergone some editing???? The female runner throwing the hammer at "Big Brother" is wearing an iPod!
