Apple at RSNA, free icons

In brief: Apple recently made an appearance at the Radiological Society of North America's (RSNA) annual conference in Chicago, showcasing its 24-inch iMacs and Xserve server systems as documented by two MacNN readers.... A few grad students have demonstrated a means to track users of the iPod+Nike Sport Kit, which is raising personal privacy concerns in some areas.... A video on YouTube is contradicting Apple's claims that its computers don't crash, as the two hosts experience a black MacBook repeatedly restarting on its own accord.... ToonSanta.com today released five free holiday icons available in Adobe Illustrator and 128x128 PNG formats.... Booq is showcasing its array of protective bags for Apple's MacBook and MacBook Pro as gift ideas for creative professionals this holiday season. [corrected]

    Oh, right!

    I'm sure they put in some script in the /etc to force it to reboot on startup. Because we all know Macs don't crash. Or its a bad extension, so not Apple's fault! Come on! Where's the indignation people! Someone's criticizing the Mac! We should be torching these guys' house down (bah, its probably a dorm, filled with liquor and p*** mags).

    Of course, we could all criticize idiots who spend their time recording videos and posting them on YouTube. But, hey, that's what a mac is for!

    Apples don't crash?

    Did Apple ever claim that the Macs never crash? Mine has. In my 13 years of Mac ownership, I've had my Mac crash about four times. Not bad but "never" is a pretty strong word. In my 13 years of using Windows (at work), I've lost count of how many crashes I've had.

    they crash

    Who said Macs don't crash? They are even built in with Kernal panics, which every mac geek knows about.

    Wow.

    Shut up, testudo.

    Man. No fun being on this board as this cartel of 15 year olds with l33t b0x3s are sitting here putting words in our mouths.

    Tracking?

    Big friggin deal that someone figured out how to track the iPod + Nike. Really, who is going to do this? A disgruntled lover can buy sophisticated tracking equipment at the local shop and has been able to do this for years. It's also not that expensive. This is just a made up story,

    Saint_Stryfe.....

    you still never posted yore own thoughts on the subject - true Testudo is off on their own tangent as usual - but the vid-spot on TouTube had at least a dozen clipped edits and the one time they "showed the screen" to the camera there was nothing visible except light and dark_

    Yes - People Macs can crash_ It is a computer - all computers do this - just like all babies eat and poop_

    You all feel free to jump [off the Kevin Rose cliff - i mean] on the Kevin Rose band-wagon if you want - sounds like this kid has a little knowledge about very little and has decided to share with the world_ Haven't seen him come up with anything intelligible yet_ Let me know when he has figured out the cure for cancer or Herpes-C or some shit_
