    I wonder if the new Mac will actually report it is using the Intel
    chip to the web servers...

    will show the HTTP_UA_CPU and HTTP_USER_AGENT....

    i wonder if either one of them says Core Duo or Core 2 Duo... on my
    old Mac mini, it says PPC for PowerPC...

    if you have an iPhone, you can try that address too.... I wonder
    whether it will say what CPU it is running on.

  2. I thought it was general knowledge that it is an ARM CPU?

    The iPod Touch returns: (iPod: U: CPU like Mac OS X; en)

  4. It says "Intel Mac OS X"
    It says "CPU like Mac OS X"

    Other differences are
    Mac: AppleWebKit/522.11.1 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/3.0.3
    iPhone: AppleWebKit/420 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/3.0 Mobile/1C28

    Did you also notice after it tells you that you are using an iPhone it
    says "How hip!" :)

    It didn't say that I'm using an iPhone this morning; the line that says
    what hardware I was using was blank. They've since updated the site to
    report an iPhone with the "How Hip!" comment. I had to re-access the
    page to get that.

    How can a CPU be "like" an operating system?

    Oh, I know, it's a typo: it should say

    CPU likes Mac OS X

    Better yet:
    You are using Safari/Mac OS X.
    You have a PowerPC Mac
    No, that would be:
    You speak English and I don't.

    A UNIX signature isn't a return address, it's the ASCII equivalent
    of a black velvet clown painting. It's a rectangle of carets
    surrounding a quote from a literary giant of weeniedom like
    Heinlein or Dr. Who.

    Ha, ha, Dr. ..... Who's Chris Maeda?

    Except that none of those would *necessarily* be true.
    It is not uncommon for people to set their user agent
    string to make it look like they are on a different
    platform than the one they are actually using. It is
    safe to say that for that particular request the user
    preferred to receive content in English.

    I would just say something like "Based on your user-agent
    string it appears that you are using Safari on a PowerPC
    Mac running Mac OS X".
