xlr8yourmac has gotten a tip from a reader how you can make iTunes support your CD-RW drive, even if it is not supported officially. However, that doesn't mean it will necessarily work after that. There is also a report on G4 667MHz performance, after only 733 machines have been tested before.
the register has some really bad outlooks from a storage guru about the future of storage devices and personal computers. Let's just hope things will change before it's too late.
MOSR has some mroe news on possible solutions for future PowerBooks G4 going faster than 600MHz (one being Apollo chips, the other being MP configurations) and notes that the 7450 chip is finally starting to scale a bit better and that a speed bump up to 866MHz might be feasible until Summer, with 1GHz appearing shortly after.
Deus Ex MP patch available
MacCentral notes that the multiplayer patch for Deus Ex has finally arrived and is being hosted exclusively by Apple itself (cool isn't it). I guess the first mirrors are up already though. The patch is 35MB and is a recommended download for everybody who calls Deus Ex their own.
