An interesting acknowledgement of the new iMac’s cool factor came from an unlikely source this month: PlayStation enthusiast magazine
|<?php virtual(“/includes/boxad.inc”); ?>
PSM focuses exclusively on new titles and peripherals available for Sony’s PSOne and PlayStation 2 video game consoles. The magazine also sports a regular feature called “Checkpoint,” where the magazine’s editors and writers give readers a heads-up on what’s coming for the popular game consoles. Forthcoming theatrical releases and DVD videos are also commented upon, and sales of popular video games are tracked.
The April issue of PSM is starting to hit subscribers’ mailboxes, and in this edition (Vol 6, issue 57, pp. 21), Checkpoint’s writers noted the new flat panel iMac, introduced this past January at Macworld Conference & Expo in San Francisco, Calif. In the Checkpoint “Cool Stuff” sidebar, PSM noted some of the selling features of the new iMac, such as its ability to connect via FireWire to the popular iPod digital music player, support for wireless networking via its optional AirPort card, and the high-end model’s inclusion of a “SuperDrive” that can burn DVD-R discs.
