“Words like ‘striking’ and ‘inspiring’ are rarely used to describe desktop computers,” writes Popular Science for its Best of What’s New Grand Award. “But they seem almost insufficient to describe Apple’s rapturous Power Mac G4 Cube, a shiny, silvery, and silent (there’s no fan) box that looks more like a stunningly designed toaster for the Star Trek generation than simply a next-generation Power Mac.” [Nov 9]

These machines are ideal for anyone who doesn’t give a fig about how computers work. There is still no computer that’s easier to set up and use.” [Nov 7]

[Nov 6]

MP3 for the Rest of Us
