A feature not a
[C]ould Apple have purchased Parallels? If you at look at the facts, it begins to add up. The Parallels team has been releasing new features like crazy and hasn’t been charging for them. They’ve added features like Boot Camp support, making Parallels compatible with Apple’s offering. The new Coherency mode is approaching what some people have envisioned the next version of Boot Camp to be like. To top it off, 3D acceleration is expected to land in Parallels right around the time that Leopard is shipping.
I might be completely wrong, but to me it looks like something is going on behind the scenes. If Apple has purchased Parallels, I think that explains why the Parallels team has been releasing features out the wazoo without charging for them. This won’t be the first time Apple has included third party software in one of their offerings, so I think this scenario is completely possible.
Still a Couric fan
Howard Kurtz’ column today looks at Couric’s Journey:
“The news of the day is still our staple, but that doesn’t mean we can’t do a really smart series on obesity,” says Couric, who is perpetually on a diet herself. “Or a piece on foster kids being given addictive drugs . . . ‘Hard’ and ‘soft’ are completely antiquated terms. Some of the stories on the front page of The Washington Post and New York Times aren’t traditional hard-news stories, and I’ve never heard anyone ask them to justify that.”
