Lumen.

by Richard

These shadow projectors may look small when the lights are on, but when it’s dark, the images they make are larger than life. They’re made out of acid etched stainless steel and contain an oil lamp instead of just a light bulb or LED light source so that the flickering of the flame causes the shadow to move around on the wall or whatever surface you’re projecting onto.

Apple just threw down the gauntlet. Now I can definitely buy a MacBook Pro and use it for work (my job uses Windows-only software) and to keep up with my Rails projects (I use TextMate and Navicat on my Mac mini right now.) Excellent.

Whoa. Nice commercial.

    I can’t wait to see what Apple releases for the professional line of towers. This is really going to change the landscape of personal computing. When you go out to buy a new home computer, do you buy one that can run both OS X and Windows, or do you buy one that can only run Windows?

    I know there are some price concerns, but Apple is ever closing that gap with things like the mini and the iBook.

    Yeah, I also read an article yesterday that suggests that Apple might partially be doing this for the education market (I learned how to use computers/program on an Apple IIe back in the day)… Theoretically, you could outfit an entire classroom with new Intel Macs and set them up to dual boot Windows and OS X. If you had a class that needed Macs, and a class right behind them that needed PCs, all you’d have to do is reboot the machines.

    Without a doubt, third party retailers will start selling Intel Macs with a fresh copy of XP (maybe even preinstalled). I wonder if Apple will start selling machines with both operating systems pre-installed? That would be pretty wild. It’s hard to imagine, but with this recent annoucement, it seems like anything is possible.

    EFI and BIOS

    Macs use an ultra-modern industry standard technology called EFI to handle booting. Sadly, Windows XP, and even the upcoming Vista, are stuck in the 1980s with old-fashioned BIOS. But with Boot Camp, the Mac can operate smoothly in both centuries.
    Word to the Wise

    Windows running on a Mac is like Windows running on a PC. That means it’ll be subject to the same attacks that plague the Windows world. So be sure to keep it updated with the latest Microsoft Windows security fixes.

    lmfao! Tell us what you really think Apple!
