[MD1] Apple's response to Fortune Mag
From Jordan Dea-Mattson, Apple Evangelism jordan@apple.com Dear Friends - You have probably read the latest 'hit piece' that appeared in Fortune Magazine's latest issue. This is Apple's response. Not much that I can add. It really sums things up. Yours, Jordan ====== Date: 02/20 Letter to the Editor, Fortune Magazine Dear John, We must confess to being more than a bit confused by your highly melodramatic story about Apple ("Something's Rotten in Cupertino"). Much of your March 3, 1997 article is based on speculation from an individual who even you characterize as a frequently unreliable source, and then your supporting evidence is almost entirely unattributed quotations. We expect better from Fortune. So, allow us to provide an attributed quotation about the story's thesis and suppositions from one of its key figures, Steve Jobs, "The Fortune article is pure fantasy. I am very happy as CEO of Pixar and I am not, repeat not, looking for another job." Best regards, David F...

If the source image is already a GIF or JPEG file, than PICT FM does no conversion at all and will simply serve the source file as-is. BACKGROUND PICT FM was developed to solve...

[MD1] Apple on state of Newton
Dear Newton Developers and Customers, Regrettably, there has been a great deal of misinformation in the newspapers of late regarding our Newton program. An uninformed outsider's view of the situation coupled with relentless doom-n-gloom reports in the popular media could lead one to believe Apple was in the process of "shutting-down" the Newton division.

[MD1] Amelio's Shareholder Mtg Speech
Dear Developers - Here is the text of Gil Amelio's Apple Shareholders' Meeting address. If you are interested in the direction and goals that Apple is setting, I recommend that you read it. Here are a couple of things that we'll call out to you: 1. There are new and impressive people in charge of marketing. 2. Rumor has it that the new PowerBook -- code named Hooper -- is really going to kick some butt. 3. Last quarter, the Mac OS (as opposed to Apple's hardware business alone) actually GREW 9% -- not shrank as the generic press would lead you to believe. Motorola, who sold 40,000 Mac OS units at Comdex, believes that these sales are new units, not something they are taking from Apple. I apologize for the length of this message -- but I thought it worthy. Neil Ticktin MacTech Magazine publisher@mactech.com http://www.mactech.com ========= Good morning. Members of the Board, Apple Executives, Fellow Shareholders, Fellow Employees. Welcome and thank you for coming. Our annual...
