apple screws 3rd party audio developers

i like apple for the most part. i work in a heterogeneous world, but by-and-large, i enjoy my ibook and tend to stick with it through the good times and the bad. but i'm not a zealot and there are times when apple needs to get its head out of its corporate ass. take, for instance, its practice of screwing 3rd party audio application developers . presumably it's in some incomprehensible way meant to protect apple's interests in ichat [ i know i'm simplifying the situation, but bear with me ], but it really, really rubs me the wrong way. xten has developed a great cross-platform sip-client , which happens to suck on a mac because the sound quality issues.

of course, your average mac user wil probably blame xten because ichat works just fine. sigh

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
