It was Dec. 2nd 1991 and Apple had thoughts of pushing video content on machines as they launched the Quicktime Application. Since then it’s gone through regular updates, including Quicktime 4, where it was introduced into the Windows environment. The newest version of Quicktime X (or Quicktime ten) will be coming out first quarter of 2009.
Other events that happened this week – the applications for ability to bid on the 700 mHz spectrum ended. AMD was told they could not use Intel’s 486 microcode in their systems. Apple enhanced their line of G4’s with ATI Rage 128 video cards. Finally, AT&T announced they will begin to pull payphones until the end of 2008, where they will completely be out of the Pay phone market.
