  • They're not all pro MS. Steve Woz was on the other night. Andrew
  • Apple wouldn't release a 4MP camera. Maybe 3, but most likely 2. That way it could have a 5GB hard drive, firewire and rechargable (via firewire) battery (of course I'd also like to have extra batteries because the flash uses quite a bit of power …
  • Aaak
  • I think the keyboard should lower a few millimeters when the thing is closed - because my screen is scratched from the keyboard. Which is lame, of course. Larger resolution would be fine, I guess, but all the programs I use work great - FCP and …
  • You are all missing the HUGE point of this. You will NOT be using it for a long time. DVDs were available in the early 90s - it's been nearly 10 years. They were "developed" probably before 1990. However you slice it though, this new tec…
  • When the CDs become mainstream, there will be software available to copy it. Everything can be broken. Andrew
  • I haven't tested it, cause I don't feel like spenidng the monye too, but I've heard that under OS X, the superdrive can use DVD-RWs (Hewlett Packard kind DVD-RWs) I guess it's pretty simple - it just re-writes (doesn't ask or anything)...I'm not …

  • I think you're all forgetting something. Apple has not annoucned a press-conference. So if they are updating stuff soon, there will be no hoopla about it. Andrew
  • He wants to know if you buy Apple because its "Apple" In his statement, the "mystery computer" runs Apple Software FASTER. Software would look and work the EXACT SAME as it does now. The hardware is the EXACT SAME HARDWARE that Apple has or w…

  • [quote]Originally posted by Alexander: That's a very good point, but I still can't help feeling that 133MHz SDR is a little, well, obsolete. C'mon Apple, decent motherboard! Alex Hey you're in Palo Alto...it can't be hard to find out…
  • Sorry to disapoint. There are four G4 systems. Check under Education. There is a low-end 533Mhz system still available, with the old case. Using a Rage 128 Pro. The other three use the Nvidia GeForce 2. The top one is a GeForce 2 with Tw…
  • [quote]Originally posted by hmurchison: USB 2.0 and Firewire are most definitely competitors. They both hook up very similar devices. Apple will have to keep expousing the virtues of FW,no need for Hubs though they exist if you want one, Asychronou…
  • FireWire and USB are not competitors. USB is made for simple devices, such as mice and keyboards. Webcams and Drives that don't use much speed. USB2 works with these devices still since it keeps the same form factor, but is still not good for…
  • [quote]Originally posted by JCG: Quicktime live is next month, and the next MPEG standard is based on Quicktime technology. I think Apple would use a camera like this to highlight that technology. The quesion is will they? This is a market with…
  • [quote]Originally posted by koffedrnkr: i wasn't suggesting a "snap on" camera for the ipod..i was suggesting using the ipod hardware as the basis for a digital camera. same hardware, different purpose. Well yes. then it's the same thing. It's…
  • [quote]Originally posted by koffedrnkr: i mentioned this in the icamera thread, but just how cool would a digital camera built like an ipod be? you could take digital pictures which are stored on the units internal 5 gig hard drive. to review y…
  • Yeah, but they're out of stock. Andrew
  • WEll, the 21st is a national holiday here in the US. So I'd go for the 22nd. That's also the day many, many state schools start. Andrew
  • [quote]Originally posted by Dave Hagan: Hey guys, Perhaps Apple might just unveil something big soon. I think Apple might be taking on a new marketing strategy so that they're always "relevant" and getting "press." ...Just a thought... Yeah…
