    WiFi for compacts??

    I have yet to confirm this, but "generally reliable sources" inform me that there is a company that is working on a WiFi module with an RS-232 interface for industrial applications. If this is true, then there might actually be a way to connect our compacts (and other vintage Macs) to the 'net...

    Clamshell video out

    I've just acquired a beat-up firewire clamshell -- the screen is cracked, and the rest of the poor thing looks like it was run over by a truck (for all I know, it was). Other than that, I can hear the startup chime upon power-up, so maybe it has some life left in it. This clamshell has...

I'd like to replace the CD writers with either a big HD or a DVD writer. A quick online search doesn't reveal much wisdom. Before I just go...

    Free Clamshell iBook, or Why I love Silicon Valley

    So a friend of a friend hears that I'm wacky for macs, and gives me a dead clamshell ibook that he had gotten from still someone else long ago, thinking he'd get around to fixing it some day. Well, he's getting ready to move, and has decided that he's never going to fix it. "Besides, I'd never...
