MyAppleMenu : Reviews
Keynote 1.0: Presentation Software Dazzles But Lacks Key Features (Franklin Tessler, Macworld)
Keynote is powerful enough to design presentations that put PowerPoint's best aesthetic efforts to shame. For now, if you deliver your presentations only on Macs and you don't mind Keynote's lack of timing and navigation controls, Keynote merits strong consideration, especially at one-quarter the cost of PowerPoint. But if you need to create self-running presentations, incorporate timed animations, or display your slide shows on Windows PCs, you may be better off waiting until Apple addresses Keynote's shortcomings.
Virtual PC 6: Update Improves OS X Integration, Performance, And Usability (Jonathan Oski, Macworld)
If you upgrade in the hopes that your Mac will finally run Windows applications as fast as a PC, or because you're unhappy with Virtual PC's current performance on your Mac, you're apt to be disappointed. This release is no watershed. But the integration with the OS X Dock and the desktop mounting of disk images are nice additions.

MyAppleMenu Reader : World
An American Myth Rides Into The Sunset (Susan Faludi, New York Times)
It's worth recalling that the cowboy of the myth wasn't trigger happy and he wasn't a dominator. He carried a gun to protect himself and his cattle cattle that didn't even belong to him. His mission was their safe passage, and by extension, the safe passage of the civilizing society to follow. And his honor was grounded on his civilized refusal to fire first.
Missile Threat Means New Rules At Airports (Philip Shenon, New York Times)
Federal authorities will order major security improvements at several of the nation's largest airports after inspections showed that passenger planes taking off or landing at those airports would be vulnerable to attack by terrorists using shoulder-fired missiles, senior Bush administration officials said.
The Right Stuff (Eric Alterman, Boston Globe)
How conservatives control the media, and pretend they don't.
More Afraid Of Ideas Than Of Capitalism (Ross Terrill, Washington Post)
Thus, Beijing, having lost its Leninist brother states in Moscow and East Europe in 1990-91, pioneers a new kind of authoritarianism, which co-opts everything yet is cynical about everything. Maybe it is stable in the short term, but it seems too hollow inside to endure for long.
Looking Inside Out: Al Jazeera's View (Eric Black, Star Tribune)
Fox is "hopeless" because its pro-war slant gets in the way. CNN is valuable as long as you understand that it looks at the world through American eyes. But Al Jazeera is "where you see all the news that's fit to print."
