Apple is to include Marimba and Pointcast push technology in its forthcoming MacOS 8, due next month. The move by Apple is seen as proof of the company's determination not to be left behind. Microsoft is releasing its own push technology in IE 4.0, which will be available in Memphis, the next version of Windows. Apple's decision to use a third party's technology rather than create its own may be viewed by Microsoft as a weakness, but it means Apple users will be able to tap into both Marimba's and Pointcast's news services more easily, according to Apple officials.
