App Store/iTunes Card $10,000 Why Not + New Blogs

I understand that a few of you won’t like the idea that the PowerPC is not allowed on Apple’s App Store but just imagine an App Store Card with a value of U$10,000. Did you start salivating? I would buy tons of music and apps for my iPhone and as long as any PowerPC user could use this card on the iTunes Store, would make me happy. I would be able to download all the new records that I want to listen to and because it was free money, I’d try out new bands I’d never heard of before! So I don’t want to get too excited, so I will stop here. The good news is that PowerPC users still have a shot at this, even without an App Store on our machines… you go to this link, fill out the form and cross your fingers: http://www.apple.com/ca/itunes/50-billion-app-countdown/entry-form/

Good luck…I understand that they are about to hit 50 billion downloads worldwide!

What do you guys think about a PowerPC forum? Our friend created one and we are happy to share it with you. Also we have some new blogs coming out to better support the PowerPC community. As you know we take pride in supporting the outcasts, because apparently the Mac PowerPC is one of them! You also can see this post later in Recommended.

MacLibre for Mac PowerPC

I’m downloading this application right now and decided to launch my favorite word processor to start writing about it.  This is a deal changer for the Mac PowerPC community and if it works how I think it will, we get our own AppStore!

Well, I installed and launched it, but unfortunately it did not work properly.  I’m stuck with this window that says “double click for selecting the package you want to install, re-install or update”.  I’m not sure what went wrong, but I certainly will try again later.  Too bad because it looks like with this application, it allows you to update and install all the free open source software.  Let me know if it worked out for you guys.  I’m currently running Leopard.

MacLibre 2.0.2 ( 10.3 Panther/ 10.4 Tiger/ 10.5 Leopard) (Free) PowerPC – http://www.maclibre.com/

Featured applications: • Audacity • Blender • Gimp • Inkscape • Adium • Colloquy • Cyberduck • Fire • Firefox • Nvu • Thunderbird • Vienna • Multimedia • HandBrake • MPlayer • VLC • AbiWord • NeoOffice • ClamXav • DesktopManager • iTerm • VirtueDesktops • X11

P.S.: Thank you “Starfighter” for sharing this fix, it works very well.
