  • The pessimist in me thinks that this is just an effort on apples part to steer customers away from the troubled imac. With this rebate the pb G4 is under 2 grand. I think they are looking for some breathing room with the huge amount of backorders …

  • Nothing real makes video compositing software, real high end stuff. Not really future hardware but oh well... check out macslash or macrumors for more info. Shake is used by places like weta digital and many others. I hope apple can provide t…
  • By providing airport on a seperate card apple is leaving the option open for users to upgrade to other wireless protocols in the 2.4Ghz band. 802.11g is an example of a new standard in this frequency. Since .11b and .11g use the same frequency use…

  • bletch.... the only one that seems to offer a unique take on the pc is Ikebana. The rest all seem to be mini-towers with bits of curvy plastic glued on, or variations on the gateway all in one pc. The Ikebana concept is actually pretty cool, …
