    Roxio Popcorn

    I've been useing Popcorn since it came out. Great product- and no, in my experience it does not re compress files that will already fit on a single layer DVD unless you choose main movie only, just goes straight to burn like Toast does. There were issues with playback on some brands of players...

    Sidekick Anyone

    I'm sure lusting after one now. Need to see it in person to know for sure if I'll pay the $300.00 to change my phone over. Does it feel well built? I need something that may have to take a beating. If there becomes a way to sync with iCal/ Address then I'll probably be sold.

    Connecting Newton 2000 with OS X

    there is a product called "NewTen" that will allow you to install packages under OSX, and it will work with a few USB adapters, but your data dosen't show up in finder- it doesn't mount the Newton as a HD or other device.

    Connecting Newton 2000 with OS X

    Yes, it does... but only through classic. You still have to use Newton Connection Utilities (NCU). There are a few newton developers that are working on a OSX only solution, but it isn't there yet. The only utilities that have been written for OSX are package installers as far as I know.

    A good multibutton mouse for X ?

    I've always had good luck with the Kensington Mice (mouses) also. The new Studiomouse by Kensington looks promising too. They designed it to fit with Macs specifically. Check it out.

    all you need to add the ram chip to the 5300 is a T7 torx screwdriver. Remove the three screws that run down the center lengthways on the bottom of the computer. With the screws out you can then lift the keyboard up from the bottom edge of the board. The ram chip goes in under the keyboard on...

    If Apple is going to keep up...

    Actually, devices like these will have a market and will be useful, Maybe not to the average home user- but in my industry it will be a godsend. I work as an electrician in a steel manufacturing plant. The amount of information I need to haul around with me to keep track of equipment status...

The setup couldnt have been easier. Go on to the Linksys website and check if they have the instructions on setting up your...
