Movie Review: The Pink Panther


My Rating: 3Stars

This evening I went to see the movie “The Pink Panther” at UA Cinema, Time Square.

I had always like the Pink Panther movie series with Peter Sellers back in the 1970’s and 1963:

  1. The Pink Panther
  2. The Return of the Pink Panther
  3. The Pink Panther Strikes Again
  4. Revenge of the Pink Panther

This new movie had the same spirit and I cannot think of any one better to play the role of “Inspector Jacques Clouseau” than Steve Martin.

For the Pink Panther fanboys this is definitely another must have for your DVD collection. Unfortunately, if I talk about the plot of this movie too much I will ruin it for you. That’s one of the reason why I have I only gave this movie 3 penguins.

5Stars Not to be missed

3Stars Buy from iTunes Store

Apple Boot Camp Public Beta Available

Finally the official method of allowing a Macintel to run Microsoft’s Windows XP has been made public by Apple Computer. The software is called “Boot Camp” for the time being.

On March 13 I wrote in my My Weblog about “Running Windows XP on an Intel Macintosh (aka. “Macintel”)“. Where that method by two individuals from an open contest was a hack, today’s announcement, from Apple, demonstrates Apple’s elegance method of doing the same thing. It also explains why Apple never commented on the hack solution when it was made public back in March.

Please be aware that this is a “beta” class software from Apple, introducing functionalities that will be part of Apple’s Mac OS 10.5 software update to be available later this year.

With any beta class software, users must keep in mind the standard warning of backing up all data before trying, and because of its “beta” class it is not recommended for use on mission critical systems.
