The case of the pulled Panther pics...

While rumors have generally slowed down in a quiet post-Stevenote lull (too quiet, if you ask me), Apple Legal still seems to be at work (seriously, don't they ever take a vacation?).

Back on Monday Think Secret posted a bunch of pics of Panther, apparently kicking off a series of reports on the new OS. While a whole bunch of developers already have the OS themselves - as well as some "other" Mac users (myself included) - Apple Legal still felt it necessary to demand that the pics be pulled.

It really seems pointless for Apple to pull the pics when just about every Mac-related forum is now home to dozens of Panther screenshots, but questioning Apple Legal's decisions is a dangerous game (like Risk).

Speaking of Panther pics, I'm taking screenshot after screenshot of the Panther preview to pack into the next issue of "The Edition". It'll be one big Panther Gallery, complete with a bit of commentary (it should be ready in just about two weeks).

Whoo! Fireworks!

Yes, I'm back from my relaxing (more or less) vacation. And would you look at that, it's Independence Day!

Anyhoo, I hope everyone has a grand ol' time celebrating (or not, if you live in another country). I won't be posting again until tomorrow, as I'll be catching up on rumors today (and taking in a fireworks show tonight).

I'll also just point out that I've added back a section for downloading the latest issue of "The Edition" (it's just below the "Rumor Watch"). The June issue is still ready for downloading, but I'm currently putting together a very special July issue that will feature a whole buncha pics from the Panther Preview and some editorial comments on the beta of the new OS. The July issue will be ready in about two weeks time (I'll have it up just before I head out on vacation again).

Happy Fourth of July (and a belated Happy Canada Day, too)!
