The Radeon. Especially for video.
[quote]Originally posted by The Toolboi: No, though I dont doubt that this kid had a bit of a jab at gay pride in mind when he decided to wear this shirt, I really dont think that it in its self is a homophobic statment.
I don't know if the kid was taking a jab at pride itself or at the attention it is getting.
Maybe it costs more than $999 per unit to research, design, and produce the Cube?
[quote]Originally posted by G-News: It actually looks similar to an old Apple WorkGroup server. these had PowerPCs too, where big and ugly and expensive.
Nope, I used to have one. It was a lot better looking than that, twice as wide and much taller. It also had a small LCD screen on it that indicated processor stats, network activity, etc., and error codes. It looks more like an old Daystar 4-proc box. It's probably that with MacOS X...
IMHO, the richer you are, the higher tax rate you should have. Why? Simple. The rich typically get richer or stay rich by exploiting the poorer. The low-income earners are working their butts off to bring profits to their employers. Employers get rich from the profits and from their stock options that they so graciously award themselves. They also get even more money from buying and selling huge amounts of stock, because they have enough money to buy lots of shares. The...
There's a couple of things you can do: 1. Move all your savings to ING Direct - no fees - ever, and really good interest rates. Unfortunately, you still need a chequing account to move money to and fro. 2. Ask about a "minimum balance" account. My bank charges no fees if I keep a minimum balance of $2000. 3. Negotiate.

Coke, A&W, 7up, Canada Dry, Orangina, and Dr. Pepper.
OS X Server on IBM servers is a good idea if Apple charges enough for it. Apple currently subsidizes OS development with hardware sales, but if IBM could put OS X on some big iron, there's room to give Apple the OEM licensing fees they require. I do think IBM could provide a service that Apple can't. Big, robust, servers with a service plan to support big purchases. The only fly in the ointment I can think of is that Apple may have to penetrate the enterprise market...
I really gotta laugh at those of you who claim "Apple never invented anything, they just slap PC hardware in their cases." Being an innovator does not necessarily mean inventing the hardware the solutions run on. Apple innovates with actual solutions. How many people had wireless laptops before Apple? Almost nobody and those who did paid thousands of dollars for it. How well was USB doing before the iMac? Not very well. The iMac made hardware companies wake up and...
