To Apple With Love
by Awoq @ Mon 07-24-2000 11:51

Graeme Devine updated his .plan today with a very upbeat report from MacWorld. He has a good report about the expo from his point of view and also sends word that he is now sending a build of Q3A to Apple today with support for their dual processors. Here's what he had to say.
Back from MacWorld, and quite the MacWorld is was too. Gotta love the cube!

Walking around the show floor and talking to the various Mac developers and publishers it's clear that the level of support Apple is providing across the game community is making a huge and positive difference. I've worked with Apple on and off for 12 years or so (since 7th Guest days, and before that when I was at Virgin), and within the last year have felt their presence as more and more of a partner in my endeavors to make this platform rock. My thanks go out to Mike, Heather, Wallace and Geoff for their efforts above and beyond the call of duty, and I know a lot of other developers are there with me. Apple is really there for game developers right now.

I'll be adding the SMP support into Q3A and shipping a build off to Apple today. We've already got that stubbed in there.

The platform is exceptional. In the last 2 years Apple has sold 3.7 million iMacs (not including G4 and G3 towers). That's one every 18 seconds. Out of that, over 80% of those machines are on the Internet. When Apple launched iMovie, the digital video editing software for the iMac, they found that over 45% of those with iMacs capable of using iMovie were using it. These are incredible figures.
