    APPLE REFUSES ALL NEW IDEAS

    Lets not forget that Apple is a corporation operating in a free market economy and therefore needs to do some pretty cutthroat things to make ends meet and please the shareholders who are (and I assure you of this) majority none apple users. In a nutshell, we in the Apple computer community...

    OS X, Mac, and 3D gaming 2001 and after

    Well, the way I see it, there is great potential to spank PC's in games on the MAC, it depends on a few things. Will Games simply be ported from PC code to mac, or will they be written from the ground up for MAC? We need Altivec support, we need multiprocessing support (and not in the form...

    Combustion comming to OS X?

    Anyone know if Combustion is being carbonized or rewritten for OS X, and if so what will it offer that the OS 9 version doesn't? Read: Is there any reason to spend as much as $3500 for a copy?

    OpenGL 1.2 --- AltiVec aware?

    Would someone who knows about this stuff please explain to me once and for all if the latest installment of OpenGL that came with OS 9.1 is AltiVec aware and if so, how does that effect (if at all) current OpenGL games like Q3 and Star Trek Voyager? Thanks

    OS X, Mac, and 3D gaming 2001 and after

    So in a nut shell, it's part cocca. I think that they are waiting on final OS X to be finalized in as much as OpenGL and other Game API's. I figure by July or Aug 2001, we can expect to see all or most Games in stores supporting OS X as well as possibly 9.x for a year or so to come. Sam

    NEW crap in OS X 1.0!

    I recon that we're probably at built 4K50 by now, this thing is probably changing by the day....frankly I think that version 1.0 will probably still be buggy (by Apple standards, a version 5.0 by window's standards) for a year after the March release.....I'm sure Apple will encourage checking...

    OS X, Mac, and 3D gaming 2001 and after

    Anyone have an opinion as to the direction OS X will take Mac gaming, especially 3D gaming? I understand that Carmak is behind OS X, but will he write multi-threaded games or will he simply carbonize an app and let the OS run on one G4 and the game on the other, thus not really giving the P4...

    APPLE REFUSES ALL NEW IDEAS

    I actually sent an e-mail to Steve Jobs recently and he personally replied. This is not the kind of thing that most forture 500 CEO's do and it is an example of Apple's respect for their customers. I don't defend all of their corporate policies, however as large companies go, they are...
