Licensing Fun

Dave Hyatt:

I find it really strange that Mozilla’s tri-license has created this situation. On the one hand, it encourages people to build applications using Mozilla code under the GPL, LGPL, or MPL, but at the same time it makes it impossible for anyone to really give the code back to Mozilla itself if that code doesn’t use the MPL.

iChat iRritations

Matt Gemmell dissects iChat. Wow, I don’t know how he finds the time to write all this stuff down. My main iChat irritation is that it saves transcripts in a proprietary format so they can’t be searched.

PDF Workflow

Bill Bumgarner shows a simple use of 10.2.4’s new PDF Workflow feature: making it easy to save PDF files to specific locations.

Microsoft to Buy Connectix

Yikes, is this for real?

Update: Apparently so, because now MacMinute has picked up the story. As Chris says, this will probably end up much worse than Microsoft is spinning it. What they’ve said so far is less encouraging than the initial word about the Bungie acquisition, and we know how that turned out.
