Various tidbits:




Motorola posts further details about the MPC7457. The 7457 was previously discussed and will be introduced at 1.3GHz with 512k of L2 cache and up to 2MB of L3 cache.




An Apple iChat update is in the works and the next revision will introduce Video Conferencing capabilities. An Apple Video Conferencing application was first hinted at by Steve Jobs himself in April 2002 during a shareholder meeting. Microphone and Camera icons were subsequently found in iChat's resource files, further hinting at future functionality.




An Apple software update will be appearing on March 3rd... but details are scarce. The most likely candidate appears to be Java 1.4.1 Final which is rumored to be released on that same day, but hints at iMovie 3.0.2 have also emerged.

Keynote 1.0.1 was released today via Software Update, providing international support.

I really like iChat even with its limited capabilities right now. I use it instead of AIM because I like the integration with Address Book. I'd like to see them add MSN Messenger support as well, but doubt that would happen anytime soon :(

See that's my problem, is I have alot of friends who do use MSN Messenger instead of AOL and unfortunately the MSN client for Mac is a buggy little thing. But I've heard they're upgrading it when they release MSN 8.0 for Mac OSX which is coming soon.

Ide settle with proteus or fire. I have one or two friends who used MSN, I use to be a ICQ user. But, the majority of my friends used AIM, so we call converted from MSN and ICQ to AIM.

I guess in your case you'de probly wana convert your friends to MSN. I guess you can't say M$ is M$, because on a Mac M$ has to have some good to it..
