Turning his attention to Spaces, Computerworld's Ryan Faas offers a preview of what this new virtual desktop technology will bring to the Mac when Mac OS X v10.5 "Leopard" reaches store shelves in 2007.
The built-in backup feature Time Machine is one of the most talked about additions slated for Leopard. Computerworld's Ryan Faas takes a closer look at what this new capability will mean for OS X users.
Ryan Faas wonders if now's the time for school IT administrators to stock up on new Apple hardware -- or is it worth waiting for new models?
AppleTalk is one of the two protocols typically used in today's Mac networks. The other is TCP/IP, which has become the dominant network protocol for all computer networks and is the protocol on which the Internet is based.
Apple has a habit of quietly releasing special Macintosh models for schools and colleges. There were, for example, the Power Mac 5000 line and the G3 All-in-One Mac for education (both of which resembled early and somewhat pedestrian precursors to the original iMac). But with the release of the new iMac G5, some educational technology departments might want to look at Apple's online education store, where they'll discover pricing and an additional iMac G5 available only to educational institutions. (And no, it's not available for individual purchase by faculty, staff or students.)
