I received the following email from Intuit yesterday out of the blue, asking for input for QuickBooks for Mac, including Mac OS X. They are looking to determine which flavour of QuickBooks should be brought to the Mac – None, the Web version’s plugin, or one of the fully-featured versions. Those of you who have been waiting for Intuit to be open to such ideas, now is your chance to be heard! Should the survey link no longer be acceptable, above is a link to quickbooks.com and below is the email address from the sender.
If you have a pre-FireWire bronze PowerBook G3 (Lombard), or various other iMacs and iBooks, you may be looking forward to downloading Mac OS 10.1.2 in the hopes that your built-in video board will finally be functional. Unfortunately, these machines (with Rage Pro and similar ATI boards) are still unsupported, despite meeting the system requirements listed on the Mac OS X box and Web site.
Apple will be offering a PowerBook G4 Combo Upgrade Program for Rev. B TiBooks for US$299 from 14 January – 30 March 2002. This will allow you to upgrade the latest 550 and 667 MHz PowerBooks to have the new combo DVD/CD-RW drive announced on 17 December. Oh Joy.
