Apple miscellany

OK, so the Apple web is all ga-ga about a possible “special event” next week (on the 7th). But what else is going on out there? Well, I’m shocked, shocked I tell you, that no-one seems to be making much of a fuss about this bit of news — could have some pretty major consequences for Apple’s revenue stream I would venture:

Creative claims music player patent covers iPod, too.

Meanwhile, those OS X-ers familar with The GIMP might be interested to learn that there is a new graphics app out there, built on many of the bits that make The GIMP what it is, but this time “Aqua-fied”: Seashore. Very cool.
