  • Oh come on, everyone knows you can't get to warp factor 10. Its called the transwarp barrier or something, the Borg and a few other species can move beyond it, but traditional warp technology max's out at warp 9.x or something, that was the premise…
  • Has anyone else noticed that this latest release of 10.2.3 will update almost anything. I used to be running a copy of 6C106 on a G4/500 and it updated that beta straight through to the full 10.2.3.... The previous updates werent even available in …
  • its not brilliant, but its pretty damn solid and it works.... thats enough to make me happy... i generally don't use real for anything, but i like at least the option having it so i can check out exposure.scifi.com and otherstuff.... after going …
  • yeah, this is what i wanted to do because the geforce 4mx's blow, i want dual monitors, and 32mb vram won't cut it, plus, i need to be able to mirror to a tv, and the 8500 has that built in.... i can get a mac edition 8500 for $180, but as someon…
  • people are so quick to assume that this implimentation of ddr is faked or limp because the processor's don't have the ability to operate on a bus of that fashion... my take on it is that as the wintel world found a clever way to avoid the absurd…
  • wasnt the last promotion called "powerful savings" or something? the rebate was essentially on the macs themselves then (i might be mistaken)... the title of this one is "crystal clear" savings.... yeah, they're trying to clear the pipeline... but …
  • i won't argue this, espescially since this concept is merely imagination anyway. my statements stand, and have merit. it may seem unreasonable and illogical to most of you that they do, but humans are not necessarily reasonable or logical.
  • and oh yea, i just posed the question to several friends and assosciates who are either art directors, marketing creatives, or strategy consultants. the only possible way of it not being a faux pas is if it were intentionally pulled off as commem…
  • oh buzz off... it is unequivocally a marketing concern, i'll make a statement, and if you don't want to listen to it, i really don't care. if you're a public company like apple, where so much of your sales depends upon your public image as a…
  • cool idea, im working on a mockup now... problem is it will never happen, and here's why: BIGGEST MARKETING DISASTER EVER Apple launches new tower computer in New York. Think about it, to tell you the truth, I don't care, but the rest of …
  • sizzle, you have a point.... that DP 450 was probably the greatest deal on a mac os machine since the power computing days... having that midrange dual makes it the obvious choice... i just cant imagine apple doing that again, i feel it was a move…
  • i've never understood the philosophy of going with faster instead of fastest or just fast. its like in poker when you've only got a little money left, you either fold, or raise all in every time. these days the "faster" runs around $2300, if you…
  • man, i feel spolied reading the systems that are killing some of you guys, i'm on a g4 500 that ive upgraded the crap out of, and im at my wit's end... its getting unusable, and i cant afford to wait another 6 monthes... im placing my order about 10…

  • Hahaha.....now that blew me away. I just fell off my chair. In all honesty, that would make a great dead-pan humor publicity stunt. Too bad someone else thought of it. Thanks...I feel much better now. Whatever Apple announces, I'll always k…
  • I really wish some of you would listen to many of the previous posters on this topic regarding a global wireless network. Satellite communications are not yet practical for many applications of broadband technology. For streaming content, transfer …
  • It was my impression practical consumer applications of optical computing were many years down the road. That is, of course, assuming you were talking about optical computing? However, a speed jump that big would be quite signicant. .: Mi…
  • Yea, it doesnt seem right, I sold it for a bit of a loss. I was just dissapointed with the speed of it, it wasnt worth the investment of it becoming my main computer for the next 18 monthes. I've put almost 2 years and a lot of money into getting …
  • Thanks for making this thread, I really can't stand the whining for high performance iMacs. I really don't mind paying for high quality Apple products. I'm working on a G4 500/1gb/200gb and I had a Quicksilver 867/1gb/100gb which I got rid of pr…
  • Just a small additional comment about the original video. While the type does seem to be on a seperate layer, the masking job on the hand is absolutely phenomenal. While there are mistkaes, generally mistakes in a hoax are fairly consistant. The …
