  • Thanks for the information. They *say* they only want to be able to view them, but I don't know the reality of the situation [what clients say and what they mean are often different things]. I will check out vectorworks, and see if I can't do …

  • Quote: Originally posted by Aphelion I hope you get the HDTV 30" screen/monitor right as I would rather buy one that I can hook my Mac to than waste all that money on just a TV. I am in the market to move up to HDTV and would gladly give my mon…
  • also... something interesting. They advertise $.70 songs and lower "whole CD" downloads, but of the random simgles I saw, they range in price from .79 to .99!! Bunch of Clown Shoes Also notice their "cool" adverts you can download. Look fam…
  • Another thing with regards to the article... the engineers have officially stated that the 970 can have different "bus multipliers". This is a very good thing, as we will be able to see the GHz increase at a steady rate, even if the companion chip c…
  • Quote: Originally posted by [email protected] I'm just glad to hear confirmation that IBM and Apple have a roadmap for the future of the PPC. After so long with MOT and the stagnation, it felt like neither company had a business plan for the future. With IBM…
  • Some new information based on Hannibal's Interview with the folks at IBM Quote: As for why the VMX unit was done after the fashion of the old G4, it was a time-to-market thing. "What app developers will find is this will still perform pretty wel…
  • Quote: Originally posted by gardnerj I never noticed this but i appear to have a copy of OmniGraffle (2.something) on the 12"pb. According to the license it was part of the pre installed bundle software and doesn't have an expiry date. Can't reme…
  • I am still not quite convinced that the 970+ will have extra cache. I don't think the die shrink will allow for it [takes too much room on the die, and the expense of 90nm RAM would make it too expensive]. That said, I *do* think they will find a wa…
  • While this comment doesn't totally fit to this topic, I really don't wish to start "YA970" thread... The 970 is here, and here for awhile. Don't expect the 980 [whatever it will be called] to arrive far after the POWER5 chip is up and running in …
  • Quote: Originally posted by piwozniak I think it would look cool in bad ass black. probably won't happen as all the displays are gray, etc, Nah, Apple has already gone through its black phase in the 90s. We like to think that they are…
  • Quote: Originally posted by fred_lj Gosh, what I would do to be employed at one of those retail stores right about now...this is probably one of the most exciting times at Apple! Visigothe, dude, if this stuff even turns up remotely accurate, …
  • Hey all. I got some additional information. The WWDC is the 23rd. I have now received information that Apple Store employees are to attend a mandatory meeting on the 22nd. This coupled with my previous information, tied to the PB64 information…
  • Quote: Originally posted by sCreeD Any Mac? From any of the lines?? (iMac, eMac, iBook, PowerBook, PowerMac -- well, we heavily suspected that last one). Screed I can only state what I know. That was the quote. Logic tells me that he meant…
  • Quote: Originally posted by Bioflavonoid As soon as I can! But first, I have a question: Can I have a separate partition on my HD for Panther? That shouldn't be a problem, and as a matter of fact, I'd do just that. There is no telling what t…

  • Ok, check it... This is a rumour, but I am posting this here, as it's the most obvious location [and I hate starting new superfluous threads]. It comes down to this: I know someone who knows a guy doing the product brochures for Apple. I go…
  • Quote: Originally posted by Leonis Can anyone explain what TwinBank is? TwinBank is really just a marketing buzzword for Dual Channel RAM. This allows more data throughput at the same clockspeed [think 2 pipes to the CPU rather than 1]
  • Quote: Originally posted by Ed M. - Operating System ... Let's face it, what would you *expect* Micro$oft to say with the approaching 970 and 64-bit OS X? Remember, Microsoft is in bed with Intel before AMD. Try not to forget that. One of the …
