  • Hi, Marvin.   Thanks for the post and the information. I have seen a similar video for that app.   I don't know...I just think it's silly to have to use an app to be able to write higher resolution. It looks very clumsy and awkward and unn…
  • Hi, Thanks for the response.   I don't want to "type" notes. I have a laptop I could bring in for something like that.   I want to take notes in my own handwriting and be able to draw pictures and write equations freely...I want a digital …
  • Hi, guys.   Thanks for the responses. Those were great. Here's my problem - perhaps you can advise me.   I want to get an iPad to use it as a replacement for a notebook. I want to take notes on it at conferences and lectures I go to (etc).…

  • Thanks for the replies guys. Rob, what manufacturer was your upgrade card from? What do you think about Powerlogix? Also, about the ATi Raedon 9000 Pro AGP Card.....how much V-Ram? How expensive is it and does this card work with the older CRT…
  • I think that the best reason for Apple to go to Intel chips (or any x86 architecture, for that matter) is the software possibilities. Let's face it....Virtual PC stinks and now that Microsoft owns it, it will likely become non-existant. Howeve…
  • Hmmmm....I will chime in with my $0.02. Let me preface this by saying that my slant will be that from the perspective of a scientist. I spend a lot of time reading papers (.pdf format) or going to talks to watch .ppt presentations. I like to d…
  • Apple cannot sit back and marvel at its greatness. That is what it did in the '80's with Microsoft and all of us know how that ended up. The iPod is great. Yes. But, it must continue to improve and evolve. Maybe this thing from Sony will…
  • Check out pictures of it: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2004/07...ny_hd_walkman/ It looks pretty cool. However, I did not realize that it could not play mp3s. It is a proprietary format. That will hurt Sony...I agree. -Dr. Bimane
  • Missing software? Sigma Plot (the best data analysis software package I can think of). WebLab Viewer Pro (a .pdb viewer for looking at protein structures). Sculpt (another .pdb viewer for looking at biological molecules) Numerous softwar…
  • Apple fans are so funny. Everything is always "wait until X comes out"; substitute your favorite pipedream product in for X. For example, we always heard "Wait until the G5 comes out. We will blow Intel away with it." Then the G5 came and we b…
  • Wow, totally underwhelming and very disappointing. I guess this just proves that IBM IS no better than Motorola. Perhaps Apple is in the wrong chip camp? It has been a full year with these G5 chips and the best IBM can do is .5 Ghz and it is …
  • I think the best and newest technology out there today is laptop/tablet hybrids......and Apple missed the boat on that. Those things are great and I think they are the future of mobile computing. -Dr.Bimane
  • I really have nothing to bring to the table except my opinion......but, if Apple does not announce 3.0 Gig G5s, like Jobs promised last year, the shit should (and likely will) hit the fan. Apple has been underdelivering for years with Moto and th…
  • I still say that Apple should make a tablet/laptop hybrid like the Gateway machines.....those things are sweet. They are the best of both worlds....laptops with the ability to input with a pen and use the tablet features. I really think that t…

  • Amorph, I absolutely agree with you. Being the first is not nearly as important as the best or most useable. Great analogy with the iPod, BTW. Your post brings me back to my first post.....how can the Gateway machine be improved upon? What …
  • Hey MCQ, We had the same thought about Apple and their claims to be the first! I know you could hook up all that extra stuff, but it would be so nice to have it all in one little machine. Thus, you wouldn't have to worry whether or not the roo…
  • Hmm.....I know....I know...the Newton.....I have heard so much about the Newton but never actually used one or seen anyone use one. I guess it kicked serious ass but Jobs never liked it. It is so funny because my friend who bought the Gateway hyb…
  • Hah! I think I may start another thread on this topic but I have to make sure no one has a similar thead else I might be chastised for creating a new one... Well, I will keep you posted as to whether or not my friend likes his Gateway and how …
