Weekend Highlights: Apple's Friday surprise is a "multi-year partnership with Opra Winfrey" to "create original programs that embrace her incomparable ability to connect with audiences around the world"; WSJ cites sources claiming Apple will stay with less expensive LCD screens for future iPhones "as consumers balk at iPhone X price tag"—more in our Apple/Macintosh section; Gene Munster thinks Apple is about 5 years behind Netflix and further ahead with original content than we think; Bare Feats compares Direct X on Win 10 vs Metal 2 on macOS 10.13.5; Lory Gil reviews Airfoil for Mac; Jonny Evans ponders whether or not Apple has a hidden meaning behind naming the next macOS after a desert; GrayKey, a thorn in Apple's side, finds workaround to new security measures; Apple releases four (1, 2, 3, 4) advertisements called "Behind the Mac", some find the sudden focus on Macs "strange"; Apple "most awarded brand" at AICP Awards.

  • "The 183 Billion-Dollar Brand: Just how much is Apple's brand worth? About $182.9 billion, according to Millward Brown. That makes it the most valuable brand in the world, topping out the likes of Google, IBM and McDonald's. In order to defend that position, though 'Apple has to be extremely vigilant,' said Millward's Mario Simon. 'It needs to engage employees and engineers and not be lost in a sea of incremental innovations.'"  MacNewsWorld 8:38 AM

For years I have used the fact that double-clicking this alias did mount the remote server giving, nearly instantly, access to the required folder. Under Lion 10.7.4, this same use of aliases seems quite erratic. Sometimes it works, sometimes the remote server is mounted, but the path of the original of the alias is modified to a local folder, and the required distant folder is not opened. On next use, the alias doesn't 'work' at all." MacInTouch 4:17 PM
