We’re working on fixing the last TubeSock bug (a crash on PowerPC Macs with Tiger) but our only working PowerPC Mac died last week. After hours of digging through a half-dozen boxes of DVDs looking for a Tiger set that would install, I gave up and signed up for an appointment at my local Apple’s Store’s Genius Bar. The Genius, Alex, hooked the PowerBook up and NetBooted from a drive that had installers for every OS version. (NetBoot is very cool, I’m going to have to steal that idea for the office.) While the OS was installing, I checked out the new iPod Touches. And guess what I found:
Apple has put Sumo! on some of the iPhones and iPods in each Apple store. That’s so incredibly cool.
