Printing and scanning in OS-X has been hindered by a lack of drivers. It’s amazing at how many ways there are to work around these problems. Thankfully, my workhorse HP 4MV Postscript network printer worked immediately after installing OS-X by simply selecting it in the Print Center. Interestingly, this is the oldest of all my printers. No such luck with the HP 230 Design Jet plotter. There has never been an HP Mac driver for this beast and it?s just a matter of luck that my ancient PowerPlot driver still works under classic using an HP Etherprint server. No big deal since PowerCAD drafting software is not slated to be upgraded to run under X until 2003. Classic all the way.

Does the statement, “We’ve always done it that way” ring any bells?

The US standard railroad gauge (distance between the rails) is 4 feet, 8.5 inches. That’s an exceedingly odd number.

Why was that gauge used? Because that’s the way they built them in England, and English expatriates built the US Railroads.

Bluetooth

Bluetooth is an open specification, originally developed by Ericsson, for a cutting-edge technology that “enables short-range wireless connections between desktop and laptop computers, personal digital assistants, cellular phones, printers, scanners, digital cameras and even home appliances – on a globally available band (2.4GHz) for worldwide compatibility.” Bluetooth has a range of 10 meters (33 feet) and is more susceptible to interference from walls, doors and glass than Apple’s 802.11b Airport wireless networks are. Although it does not require line-of-sight (like Infrared) it works best when all devices are in the same room.

Bluetooth can be used to create a Personal Area Networks (PAN) allowing you to connect your PowerBook to your Palm to your mobile phone, for example. Soon all the devices in your PAN will be able to carry out secure, wireless tasks without any intervention on your part whatsoever.
