Secrets preference panel updated for Snow Leopard

Considering Apple’s obsession with ease of use, I’m shocked they haven’t figured out a way to do this (or ship the OS with some kind of uninstaller, for that matter).  Seriously guys, I love the work you do, but this is one area that consistently gets ignored.

All is not lost…maybe

From John Nack’s “Adobe Snow Leopard FAQ

Surprised and disappointed that you haven’t tested it on CS3. It’s not exactly 5 releases previous is it?

[I found that really surprising, too, and I’ll try to get more info. I’d frankly be shocked if people at Adobe & Apple really hadn’t tested CS3 on 10.6. I *think* it’s just some corporate conservatism at work here, and Adobe doesn’t want to over-promise anything. As I say, though, I’ll try to find out more. –J.]

If only we knew for sure…I’m not ready to put down $500-600 for CS4 if CS5 is potentially out early next year.  Snow Leopard should arrive on Friday (Pre-ordered from Apple), might have a better answer by then.

Snow Leopard hitting shelves in September for $29

Considering that Microsoft now admits the purpose of Windows 7 is to improve on the Vista codebase, instead it’s Apple who gets upgrade pricing right.  If only I could pay $50 now to upgrade our 2 Macs…

Push Notification Service lives on in Snow Leopard

Another approach to solving Apple’s problem with PNS, hopefully this one gets past the drawing board.  If it works, I might overlook having to wait for Snow Leopard in order to use it.  (Via AppleInsider)
