[quote] Scanner Software Notes 'Disabled on G5 Processors' -
" <a href="http://www.hamrick.com/vsm.html
The above URL for Hamrick Software's Mac version of their VueScan software has a note about the latest version being "disabled on G5 processors"?!?!?!
I'd venture to guess that Hamrick Software is a test site for a G5 Mac - or at least they have access to one. [or a user of their software perhaps reported this?-Mike]
Why they mention this on their site is strange - you'd think that if they are a test site that an NDA would keep them from mentioning it.

The word I hear is that all new hardware testing is done inside of Apple (machines not seeded anymore outside of Apple), but not positive that is true. Checking the linked page at noon today the note is still there:
"Please note that the shareware version of VueScan is disabled on PowerPC G5 processors."
Not sure if this is a typo or a "leak" so to speak about new systems that might be announced at Macworld SF early next month.
(Update - a reader replied to this post
" Dear Mike:
Just wanted to confirm that it doesn't look
as though Ed Hamrick's note regarding VueScan is a typo. If you go to the VueScan release notes for version 7.3.5, he specifically notes that he's disabled the shareware version for G5 processors. See <a href="http://www.hamrick.com/vuescan/vuescan.htm#changes
.</a> It wouldn't make any sense to disable the shareware version on G4 processors -- most of his target audience has probably already moved to the G4.
Hope this helps. Love your site! <hr></blockquote>
I guess you don't need any trees to smoke, cause you are already burnt
