Patrick Murphy points us to this ThinkSecret story which suggests Apple and Best Buy are still in talks to restore Apple products to the retailer’s stores. The upside: Apple staff could be employed, as in CompUSA stores, to make sure Apples actually get sold. But as Patrick says, “This is like one of those abusive relationships that just never quits. And I suspect it’ll be a notable exception to the rule quoted in “Roger Dodger” – that break-up sex is always disappointing, but getting-back-together sex is fabulous.”

Ask PowerPage: Best Digital Camera for a PB

Category: Digital Camera, PowerBook 15-Inch

I am going to be traveling soon and I would like your opinion on the BEST digital camera for PowerBook travelers (I own a G4 800MHZ PB Titanium with 60GB and Max RAM).
I’ve noticed you’ve showcased a number of cameras over the years, but would like your opinion on the recent BEST. Should I buy one that uses Firewire or USB/USB2, memory stick or something else? (etc).
I plan to be traveling to Asia this summer and need a good, affordable digital camera with good overall features. I had a Sony Mavica the last time I went over a few years ago, and it was great because I could transfer to my Wallstreet 300MHZ via floppies, but the picture quality (1200X680?) was not all that great.
Any suggestions (and why) would help me greatly.
Thanks for your help.
John
