iPod Factory Passes Inspection
The iPod factory that has been in the news as of late has passed inspection by a "special team" sent by Apple. Foxconn, the owner of the factory, says that there was simply a mis-understanding between just how many extra hours were asked of by the employees by a Tiwanese reporter, as well as the British publication which started this whole debocale.
Sid Meier's Civilization IV Ships
Gamers, start your coffee makers. The latest installment in Sid Meier's addictive global conquest game, Civilization has started shipping for the Mac in North America. For a look at this new game, MacWorld has an article just for you. It is Universal and will work on Mac OS X version 10.3 (Panther) or higher.
Apple extends warranty for problematic eMacs
The eMac is still a concern of Apple's, as it would appear. On Friday, Apple announced a worldwide eMac Repair Extension Program for those eMacs showing video and power troubles.
Affected systems are described as those with "scrambled or distorted video, no video or no power" (Hang on, if they have no power, how will they know this is out there?)
It is reprtedly a hardware issue that affects eMacs with 1Ghz or 1.25 Ghz G4 processors and are constructed between April 2004 and June 2005. The serial number may have the following prefixes and be prone to the issue:
G8412xxxxxx - G8520xxxxxx, YM412xxxxxx - YM520xxxxxx or VM440xxxxxx - VM516xxxxxx
These codes are inside your CD Drawer and are viewable while in the "eject" position.
If you fit this crieteria, you are to try to bring your mac to a Genius Bar or call in and you may get it repaired for free, even if it's out of warranty.
And finally, I need some help in finding software. I'm looking for something to help me out in learning Music Theory, but I'm not finding anything that strikes as very reliable. I would prefer that the application be Universal.
One more thing, has any one messed with iWeb much? Does anyone know just how customizable it is, or do you have to use a pre-designed template?
