Hot on one of the new PowerBook G4s but afraid of losing your investment in all those cool expansion bay devices? Mac Components Engineered (MCE) has your solution: the FireBay Expansion Bay Docking Station. The US$196 unit allows you to ‘dock’ an expansion bay device then connect it to any FirePort like an external peripheral.
Two FireBay units stacked via the convenient connector on the top and bottom. On top is an Excaret Pro 20 GB HDD module, on the bottom is MCE’s CD-RW/DVD combo drive (Schwing!).

Sources tell Go2Mac that Microsoft’s highly-anticipated mac:Office for Mac OS X went Golden Master (“GM”) yesterday. Looks like the US$499 productivity suite is on track for wide release in November 2001.
Enough is enough. Like the rest of you, I too am sick and tired of being treated like a second class citizen. I have already filed my complaint with Lucas Arts, and I implore all readers to do the same.
