A reader calling himself Apple Engineer writes: As some users, I have had the misfortune of having PowerBooks (Firewire’s as well as Lombards) come in for repair with smashed screens.
I have had to turn away customers because as I was told only apple could fix/replace the LCD panel inside these ‘Books… Until now. I’ve found something very interesting that will surely get up Apple’s nose. Apple states that you can only use LG or Samsung panels. Not true.
As listed on 2-POP:
I’d just like to let everyone know that the team around here at dMedia in Tennessee has just completed work on all of the concert visuals for Creed’s new world tour. More to the point of this 2-pop board, and far less patting on back, it was all completed with FCP3 in OSX!

Arturo Pereya, General Manager, WiFi Metro, spoke with Go2Mac and filled us in with additional details of this Bay Area-based Airport/802.11b wireless network.

I’m writing to let you know about Universal Music Group’s (UMG) new copyprotection scheme for compact discs.
UMG has chosen to take the low road in the fight against music piracy byinstituting a troublesome, technically immature copy-protection scheme onselect UMG compact discs.
The problem with UMG’s approach is that it disallows the ‘fair use’ of UMG’scopyrighted work. Because the CDs can’t be copied or backed up to a computerhard disk, people who purchase UMG compact discs can’t make a copy of themusic they’ve paid for – they must lug around the CD everywhere they goinstead of making a legal copy of the music for easy portability. Peoplewith notebook computers or .mp3 players won’t be able to take their musicalong in a more portable form – ever.
