Tom Gordon's Blother

Skinny Tuesday of the Fruit Cult
(Man. That sounds like a terrible D&D module. But would Erol Otus still do the art for it? Probably.)

So. To sum it all up, we've got a media-tailored Intel Mac Mini, the afforementioned dumb ol' ghetto blaster (well, more or less), and some ludicrously overpriced leather iPod cases. Nelson Muntz, do you have anything to say?

Anyway, I'm wholly relieved. If Apple had introduced a tablet computer, it'd undoubtedly be utilizing Intel's processors. Which means with the rather small library of OS X software I've acquired in less than a year, I'd be living in a lame emulation world. And with my vastly larger library of 'legacy' OS 9 (and below) apps -- well, who the smeg knows? Can Rosetta run Classic? And can that version of Classic run the specific release of Power64 I feel most closely approximates the Commodore audio-visual experience? One emulator running inside another emulator running inside another emulator? Somehow, I doubt it.

Also, since there's no Hollywood aspect-ratio video iPod (yet), this means the time I've just urinated away tediously cropping down/encoding eight or nine widescreen movies wasn't wasted, after all! (Whoo-hoo! Go, disembodied ears, noses and limbs! Who cares if Short Round's in the foreground but we hear Indy's voice? 'Pan and scan' is for imagination-less wussies!)
