Apple made numerous improvements to the professional PowerBook G4 Titanium on 16 October 2001 when they announced two new revisions with 550 and 667 MHz processors.

Much has been written about the bits and hertz of the new portable machines but having just acquired a 667 TiBook 500 MHz I noticed a number of differences in the new machine.

Since it was introduced, people have been hunting for a way to connect Apple’s beautiful 22-inch Apple Cinema Display to the PowerBook G4 Titanium. The MARGI Display-to-Go 4 MB PC card seemed like the obvious choice, but it has never worked properly with the TiBook making the PowerBook and iBook family a virtual island from the Cinema Display and other digital LCDs. MARGI has announced that the combination of their new driver and Mac OS 9.2.1 will allow you to connect the Cinema Display to the TiBook.

iTunes 2 is now available for download. In addition to iPod support, the new version features a 10-band equalizer with EQ presets, faster CD burning (though still no multisession support), MP3 CD burning, cross-fading, and “Sound Enhancer” for improved playback. And, in a big boon for us fans of imported music, Unicode support now allows iTunes to display Chinese, Korean, and Japanese characters alongside English characters. No more garbled characters for J-pop!

An iTunes for OS X installer that could potentially cause data loss (blame OS X’s .pkg installers!) has been replaced on Apple’s site. OS X users are now provided with iTunes 2.01, which may be safely installed. Here is Apple’s note to that effect:
