Just in case anyone's interested:



Al Jazeera English, says its reporters use 41 MacBook Pro notebooks along with Apple's Final Cut Studio video production software to edit stories.

Has anybody found a full list of correspondents and reporters for AJE online?

There's a link on their website, but it's not updated.



If I write and tell them how good I think they are, do you think the Emir could spare me a macbook pro?

Think wikipedia is probably the best source at the moment:

No pictures though.

That's the same as the website and isn't updated. No Chater either.



Despite the Apple flavour, see one of the ways to access AJE in the USA is Windoze only!



Is the channel available in France on Astra or any of the french cable channels like Canalsat, Canal+ or TPS? My friend wants to watch it and not online.

What's Aljazeera like? It wasn't picked up by us and Canadian cable/ satellite company's over here. I tried to watch their free feed on the internet but it didn't work. Do you have to be in a certain country in order to see it?

I'm not sure about availability in Canada, all I know is that it definitely isn't available in the US.



As for how it is, IMO it is very good. Professional, slick, good studio, graphics, and probably the best collection of presenters/reporters of any of the major news providers. Plus there are no real obvious signs of bias, very impartial as far as I'm concerned.
