Update #65 - Looking ahead
February 21st, 2024

This update comes much belated. Unfortunately, an issue prevented me from working on Cornica earlier. Things are fine now and hence we see our first update for 2024! Sorry to everybody waiting for new content, let's hope the rest of the year will be different!

Anyway, we're kicking off 2024 with some great new videos. User snes uploaded a video with details of the Project 2004 challenge he's untertaking. He'd love to have others joining in!

User Ethan took a video tutorial on how to scrobble Last.fm from your PPC OSX machine. Way to go Ethan!!

If you're into retro gaming (and who visiting Cornica isn't?), user HolidayPack uploaded six original Sierra mid 90's Quicktime trailers for unforgettable games such as Phantasmagoria, Shivers, Space Quest 6, Torin's Passage, The Beast Within: A Gabriel Knight Mystery or Trophy Bass. Enjoy the time travel!

Last but not least, if you've watched British TV during the 80's, this commercial here might bring back some memories.

Everybody, enjoy your classic (or emulated) Macintoshes! And don't forget - Quicktime never dies!


Update #64 - Christmas & New Year update
December 31th, 2023

Happy New Year! Have some great days to spend with the family and to unwind and simply live!

And how to do that better than booting that old computer of yours and watching some Quicktime videos while sipping on your favorite drink? We've got the perfect present for you ... :-)

Two videos of important "Apple moments" have been added: Steve Jobs unveiling the Mac 128k and the funeral for Mac OS in 2002.

Our top uploader HolidayPack also provided us with new videos for our history section, be it about the Hale-Bopp comet (remember?), Kurt Cobain's death or the Rescue of baby Jessica.

My personal favorite with this update is Dave Dries' rendered 1984 arcade animation that you'll find in our games section. And we've added another video from the 8-Bit Guy, this time the review for the Mini Amiga500 that was released earlier this year.

This is the final update for 2023. We'll be back in 2024 for more Quicktime glory, so don't forget to bookmark Cornica. And don't forget: Quicktime never dies!


Update #63 - Bugs, games, apps & the 8-Bit Guy
December 3rd, 2023

Quite some topics to cover - let's start! If you've visited Cornica using Netscape 3 or 4 during the last week, you probably noticed video pages not loading properly - that bug has been squashed and Netscape users can now happily watch Quicktime videos again!

As for other exciting news, YouTuber 8-Bit Guy has allowed us to host some of his excellent videos on Cornica. So you can watch retro brighting your 68k Mac from the very computer. Talk about excitement here! The first of his videos is about the restoration of an Apple IIc Plus. More to follow soon!

There's also a handful of new game trailers such as Headline Harry, Rome: Total War, Command & Conquer Generals, Labyrinth of Time as well as the intro from Inherit the Earth - all uploaded by user HolidayPack.

Thanks to his efforts, our Mac Applications category keeps growing too. Quicktime trailers for DiVA Videoshop, Mathematica 2.0, Stratavision 3D, Compton's Encyclopedia and the Quicktime Hypercard Toolkit have been added.

Before we end this post, a little notice - I'll do some changes to Cornica's technical underpinnings soon. We may be unavailable for an hour or two at one point. Don't worry when that happens - we'll be back in old glory! :-)

And don't forget: Quicktime never dies!


Update #62 - Fun finds & cool uploads
November 12th, 2023

While rummaging through the contents of my old iMac G3's HDD I discovered a piece I had downloaded 20 years ago - a talented group of singers performing 90's Nintendo game sounds acapella. Great one - watching recommended!

Speaking of iMac G3's, Cornica now has Apple's video comparison of setting up the iMac G3 vs. a HP Pavillion. Guess who's the winner ...

More content for the Apple afficionados among you: I've added the video excerpt of what appears to be an old Apple Seminar on the brand as well as Jonathan Ive commenting on the design of the 20th Anniversary Mac.

And our top-uploader HolidayPack added two rather rare Apple commercials - PowerBook - Right Here In The Village and an Oliver Stone Apple Ad to Cornica. Thank you very much!

If you wanna be as cool & hip as HolidayPack (or nerdy, depending on your preference :-) ) upload your Quicktime treasures to Cornica too! And don't forget: Quicktime never dies!
