I bought an Intel Play QX3+ Microscope last year for US$25 with the hope of using a standard web cam driver so I could use it in OS9. But nothing I tried worked. I was corresponding with ioxperts and they never released new Mac OS 9 drivers that I could try. I just picked up a used PowerBook running OS10.2.3 and I was also trying to get a Radio Shack FlatFoto credit card size camera to work in OSX 10.2.3 as well and accidently found a driver for the microscope, go figure!

I’ve just read an interesting interview in the January edition of German Mac magazine MacUp. On page 14 one of the editors interviewed Klaus Weinmann, CEO of Europe’s largest Apple dealer, Cancom. I’d like to quote some answers by Weinmann, which throw some light on Apple’s woes in Europe and especially Germany where Apple has enormous problems getting off the ground. The answers are, to my mind, of importance to American readers and Mac users, too. Hopefully, also some Apple guy at Cupertino takes note. (I translated questions and answers from German for your convenience.)

Yes, officially we’re not publishing today, but I interrupt the PowerPage holiday to bring you the first spherical computer I’ve ever seen. Some of us joked about this as an excellent potential follow-up to the G4 Cube, but it seems enterprising Japanese computer lovers have again beaten Apple to the punch. Now, if it could only levitate . . . Those of you fluent in Japanese, feel free to chime in with translations.
