Macworld - Apple executive Eddy Cue gets a flattering write-up, Motorola gets a flat take-it-or-leave-it offer from Cupertino, and how to turn your older Mac's drives into a Fusion Drive in twenty-seven hours flat. The remainders for Wednesday, October 31, 2012 are flat broke.
CNet profiles Apple senior vice president of Internet software and services Eddy Cue, describing him as "Apple's master negotiator and product resuscitator." Which explains why I recently saw him crouched over an iPhone, tapping on the Maps app and shouting "DON'T YOU DIE ON ME!"
Apple said in a court filing that it's totally willing to license essential wireless patents from Motorola Mobility ... as long as Motorola parent company Google doesn't charge more than $1 per iPhone. Sources tell this reporter that Google may agree, but will mandate that those payments be made entirely in quarters.
Fusion drive on older Macs? YES! (Jolly Jinx)
Developer Patrick Stein has figured out how to convert your older Mac's storage into a Fusion Drive, presuming you have the requisite components (a hard drive and a solid-state drive), as well as the time, command-line knowledge, and available emotional support for when you accidentally erase all your files.
