Surely you don't think that they'd talk to persons outside of their racial/ethnic about these...
Actually, there was a young African-American lady (with dreads) in some of the original iBook print ads.
You make a point. In Apple's efforts to expand their market share, they would be best served to attract all demographics within that ubiquitous--yet unreachable--95%. Familiarity is one way to do that. Sure there are other ways (robust features, design, etc.), but one likes to feel like they are part of the target audience.
There are instructions for setting up a Software Base Station on OS X at VersionTracker.com. EDIT: Link [ 02-12-2002: Message edited by: gordy ]

Actually, I can use my Palm and look up numbers while holding my phone in the other hand easily. I have big hands, I guess. Won't matter much more, that Treo 180 has my name on it.
The Sony is an ergonomic nightmare, imagine trying to use it one-handed. The Siemens' looks pretty cool, but it seems likda big, though. The Handspring Treo and the Sony Clie 615c are still tops in my book. [ 02-07-2002: Message edited by: gordy ]

Okay, here's 'ol gordy's list: Mail OmniWeb (general, some shopping) IE (banking, finance, shopping) iTunes Sound Studio AppleWorks BBEdit Lite GraphicConverter iPhoto Image Capture I know I forgot like the best one...
There is no reason to buy the full bversion of Virtual PC if you have a Windows Installation CD. The DOS version of virtual PC is around $60US. You can install Windows on top of this easily by typing e\setup at the DOS prompt. [EDIT]Furthermore, I have no problems with Virtual PC. If you're running simple applications like Spreadsheets, databases, etc., it should work acceptably. Office, in particular, works fine in my iMac DV SE. [ 01-31-2002: Message edited by:...
Why have a big ad campaign now, when they aren't even in stores yet? All in due time...
The users in the Apple Discussions forum did an extensive troubleshooting process, and couldn't tie anything down. I've had the problem on my iMac since the Public Beta. It's hardly an issue on my iBook, but it has hiccuped for a few seconds on occasion.
