Sonnet hires Newer engies
xlr8yourmac linked me to a press release from Sonnet telling us that Sonnet has hired all former NewerTechnology engineers. Not only does that mean they are now no longer without work, it also means that Sonnet now hold the "IP" of all CPU upgrade card inventions to date and has doubled their workforce. Good going.
Even more details, calculations and speculations on the upcoming NV20 card from nVidia has been released on this private Geocities page. I don't know where he's got all this stuff from, but Shugashack said he had some good stuff before that.
the register notes that Apple has now officially presented their loss of 247 million dollars. Also the other number didn't look very good, but they were able to limit the damage with some share sales here and there. In the end, it can only get better now.
MacOberserver keeps letting those pessimists write their articles. Today one of them talks about the news from MWSF and how good or bad, or neutral they are. Also I wonder how Apple should have answered this guys last question...
MacObserver is about the only site that still reckons the existance of Matrox as a Mac graphics supplier. Working together with PowerMax, they got a new DualHead card out, basing on the G400 chipset and supporting two screens. Good thing is: you can now have 2 screens driven with only one AGP card. Bad thing is: that chipset has about the suckiest 3D performane in the world.
Some analysts have no clue
MacCentral clearly confirms this. I always thought the people working wioth and handling shares had to have some level of informedness and intelligence, but now that I read this article, I have started to doubt it. You know, Apple is the perfect PC hardware manufacturer, isn't it?
iMac to go G4?
AppleInsider claims they got a confirmation that only the sub 800$ entry level iMac will stick with the G3 CPU, all other models (the ones with CD-RW) will have G4 chips inside. Let's hope so.
