i wish they'd put in another optical bay

one more day!!!! (well, actually more cause i doubt they'll announce at midnight, but still... hooray!!!

I would have to agree... a second optical drive... or maybe just a SuperDrive that can burn a CD at a decent speed... I can get half a terabyte into the current enclosure, so the MO drive is my next desire inside the case...

Does anyone know why they cannot get a SuperDrive to burn at 48x or 52x? The current CD write speeds SUCK. What is the limiting factor that I am missing?

My Yamaha in my MDD can burn a full CD in under two minutes. The same CD on the MDD SuperDrive takes three to four times that long.

Guess I missed a memo...

yup, and it works fine under classic on a 3 year old powerbook so it should fly under classic on a G5 tower.
anyway Quark is having compitition of Adobe CS.
adobe CS (photoshop/indesign/illustrator/acrobat pro) is much cheaper than Xpress 6.0 alone, (well, in the old world that is. a copy of Xpress6.0 sets you back 1999 euri (no joke))
an upgrade from photoshop 5.5 is even less.

It works most of the time on my Cube as well, but I do notice problems with scripts. I believe that there are/were problems with printing as well. I do know that some of the large publishers are still requiring their vendors to use Quark 4.11, and for stability of workflow OS 9.2 is still the preferred OS for people that are working for these companies (Glencoe/McGraw Hill, Pearson Learning, Harcourt to name a few). Adobe is being considered, and at least one of the publishers that we work with has committed to Frame Maker for it's XML capabilities, however as of today the composition program that most of these companies is still requesting files in is Quark 4.11, not Quark 5 or 6 or InDesign.

macrumors says new displays tomorrow (maybe), and what are displays without new powermacs
post #49 of 411
They have been needing new displays for a while now. Maybe they will match the coolness of the G5's? Would be nice for $100 drop as well or bigger for same price...

And you can say this next week, and the week after that, too. A 460" Powerbook is somewhat large for my taste. It's 14 yards diagonally (about 12 meters). I'd have to keep it outdoors, along the long edge of my lot. It might be popular in the advertising industry.\

Hmmm...I wonder if they could make something like that waterproof...

I still have my fingers crossed for today!

SCENE ONE:

<epic opera music from GB>

Haloed, white-robed Steve floats across stage, stretches out arms...

Steve: "It is as you say, my son..."

<curtian closes>
-------------------------

Amazing how we construct a mortal CEO, especially (and because) he is the CEO of the world's most amazing company. We seem to put Steve at the right hand of the Almighty himself...

Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

Steve 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for your desktop," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper your workflow and not to harm you, plans to give you hope in Apple and a future kicking Windows ass."

I'd say the Super-Bowl is the Best place to announce something. Everybody is watching. Actually the super-bowl is the most watched sporting event on the planet. (or used to be) It's piped into just about every country in the world. Even if they don't watch US football regularly (which most don't) It's still the most watched game on the planet.

Think 1984 Duh... I think Steve Jobs already told us in his own way.
