This day 25 years ago, the Apple Macintosh Personal Computer went on sale. Two days prior, during Super Bowl XVIII, Apple aired its 1984 television commercial produced by Ridley Scott, creating massive public interest in the new product. It was the first commercially successful personal computer to feature a mouse and a graphical user interface rather than a command line interface. That’s the original Mac advert at right. Get well Steve! Read More

November 30, 2006 The amount of screen real estate on your computer has a direct relationship to your productivity, which is fabulous if you have a computer capable of driving multiple screens. Increase devices will provide never before seen multi-monitor configurations for the Mac platform. If you have one of the latest Macs, you may be able to drive one of the company’s 30 inch monitors, and possibly two, but before today, two was the maximum number of screens you could drive with a Mac. Now Matrox has upgraded its DualHead2Go and TripleHead2Go systems so they are compatible with select Apple Macintosh systems. Both DualHead2Go and TripleHead2Go are palm-sized boxes that connect externally to a notebook or desktop computer and uniquely allow users to attach two or three monitors respectively for an incredible multi-monitor configuration.

An in-car Macintosh-based PC

When it comes to the disciplines of performance, handling and spectacular body design, the world’s most exclusive sports cars rarely leave anything to be desired. That changes when it comes to the interior as many of their discriminating owners wish to customize according to their own, often very personal tastes. German company Mattes Interieurtechnik specializes just in interior automotive design for ultra luxury cars. Every detail of how the interior will be customized is discussed in a personal conversation with the customer and there is no limit to the colours the customer can choose from, regardless of whether it's the leather or Alcantara used, the floor and trunk carpeting or the thread for the stitching, or one’s choice of personal computer. Until now all existing multimedia and business systems on wheels were based on PC technology. Mattes Interieurtechnik responded to the request of many of its customers who prefer Apple computers and developed a high-end in-car system based on an Apple iMac G5, whose entire hardware in turn is integrated into the 17-inch monitor that is only 5 centimeters thick. The iMac G5 multimedia system can be integrated into any car, though it is pictured here in the new Mercedes CLS where it'll set you back around UE 3,500. The computer comes covered in the finest magnolia-colored leather and is installed on the driveshaft tunnel behind the front seats. By unplugging one cable and unfastening the locking mechanism the computer can be removed from the car in less than an a minute for use at home or in the office. Read More
