When Robert Peston speaks, the whole business world sits up and listens. And most of the rest of the world.
Now, he has spoken at the Richard Dunn Memorial Lecture, at the MediaGuardian Edinburgh International Television Festival.
A flavour of the speech:
Today so much of the industry he knew is confronted by a crisis worse than anyone alive has witnessed. Now I’m going to be looking at just one part of the media industry, news journalism – which is struggling to cope with the combination of a collapse in advertising more serious even than the plunge of the mid 1970s and massive, disruptive technological change. It all feels as significant as anything the industry has experienced since the explosive growth of the great mass market newspapers in the early 20th century or the creation of the BBC and the establishment of its principles of editorial impartiality.
It’s a problem Mac know about, so they will assist you quickly if you phone them on 0844 209 0611 – but the workaround seemed to be that Snow Leopard doesnt like the internet system configuration within 10.5.6 Leopard. Seems that a lot of people are having this problem.
So Apple helped me quickly, but they do know its an issue.
Apart from that, it’s really fast! And its smoother, and nicer… overall, worth the £25 to upgrade.
