An interesting story about using my TiBook and Airport card at two recent airports.
Three weeks ago I changed planes at Denver and at Dallas. Opened my TiBook in Denver’s terminal and got no signal, but at Dallas I got two base stations. One said Moble Star and the other said Wayport. Selecting either one, and subsequently opening my browser took me to their respective web pages only. There they told me the airports and hotels where they were installed, and how their payments worked–both around US$30/month or $5-US$7 per day.
Macworld is typically a forum for all kinds of new hardware and software announcements but the lack of any new products left attendees feeling a little flat. After hearing the keynote address being described as “Steve Jobs channeling Gil Amelio” I would have to agree, and add the John Rubenstein should not take the stage at Macworld Expo for an extended period any time soon. A colleague told me that John’s section on the Megahertz Myth reminded him of an eighth grade health teacher.
Here it is folks: all the best toys at Macworld, as selected by your hard-working Go2Mac correspondents. BookEndz for the new Apples, lots of portable drives and combo drives, and high-powered scanners: it’s all here.
Even for those of us who lack the skill and money to dive head-first into Alias|Wavefront’s Maya Complete 3D animation and effects software, it’s hard not to be awestruck by this amazing software. On September 25, the shipping date announced this week at Macworld, OS X will get a killer app like none other.
Unlike many other Mac fans, I did not have a work schedule that allowed me time to go to New York for MacWorld 2001. Now that the keynote is over, I am almost glad that that was the case. I think there is a very real possibility that I would literally have started snoring had I been there. A neat, semi-new Power Mac enclosure aside, this was a real slow show, showcasing things we had already seen or which had already been announced long ago.
