I really like Al-Ghad. I mean, I’m a subscriber and get the paper every morning. But reading through the paper technology supplement today was one of those ‘should I laugh or should or should I cry moments’. Consider this list of mistakes found in the ‘technology panorama’ pages:
1. The company iDefence is spelled both correctly and with an ’s’ as iDefense in one small article.
2. Apple’s new iBook will COMPETE with Intel’s Yonah processor! (Apple’s iBook will USE the processor).
3. Universal Binaries is the name of a company!! (It’s actually the name of Mac software that can run on both the upcoming Intel Macs and the older PowerPC based macs).
4. Rosetta is a system by Intel!! (Rosetta is the name of Apple’s technology that allows the new Intel Macs to run the older PPC software).
5. The Microsoft logo is displayed with the slogan ‘All your base are belong to us’ Obviously someone did a Google Image search and just stuck a spoofed logo on the page.
6. The term ‘processor’ is written in English all over the page! (What about the Arabic translation of Mu3alij?).
7. iTunes is a company. (It’s the name of Apple’s music store and player software).
What the heck is going on here?
