Apple will delay the release of its OS X 10.5 "Leopard" operating system until October.
in order for the iPhone to be released on schedule this June, Leopard had to be put on the back burner.
"iPhone contains the most sophisticated software ever shipped on a mobile device, and finishing it on time has not come without a price; we had to borrow some key software engineering and QA resources from our MacOS X team," the company explained.
Leopard, the iPhone and talk of a touch-screen video iPod are leading Citigroup analysts to advise clients to buy Apple shares.
Parallels Desktop for Mac is the best tool on the market for running Windows on any Intel-based Macintosh. Windows users are not going to believe me, but it's true. Parallels runs Windows even faster on Intel MacBook Pros than it does on comparable PC hardware. My two Windows XP Pro on Macintosh installations run great. One is a year old, which is about how long Parallels has been available either in beta or release form -- and both have lots of software installed on them.
A new security update from Apple addresses two flaws in the company's Airport Extreme wireless hubs.
The patch only affects the latest 802.11n base stations. 802.11n-equipped notebooks, desktops, and earlier model Airport base stations are not affected.
Apple has rolled out a firmware update to fix a pair of security vulnerabilities in the Airport Extreme Base Station.
The most serious of the two ? a weakness in the way the default configuration of Airport Extreme handles IPv6 connections ? could allow remote hackers to bypass certain access restrictions.
?This may expose network services on hosts connected through an AirPort Extreme Base Station with 802.11n to remote attackers,? Apple said in an advisory.
