Subject:   According to another Expert, Apple is not an innovator

Tim O'Reilly:


Surprise, surprise. So when should Apple port Mac OS X to Intel? Why didn't you comment on Apple's innovation in _colors_?


While it seems Apple has been having trouble seeing the value in its own technologies*, every day some expert talks up an insignificant "buzz" technology (Jini) and completely ignores an Apple technology that worked so well it was almost invisible.


Rendezvous is simply a translation of the AppleTalk ethos into a TCP environment using broadcasting protocols.


Microsoft fills its glass houses with enough megalomaniacs and PHD's to bury innovative developers, then it innovates via press release.


Sincerely,
Sean Broderick



* How could anyone justify omitting AppleScript terms when upgrading an application--forcing users to rewrite scripts or an obsolete version? Compare old and new versions of Disk Copy.
