If you’re a modern day adventurer, you may well have a PowerBook in your arsenal of must-haves for travel, as several stories on Apple’s Web site show.
Online science learning is the goal of Apple and the Teachers Experiencing Antarctica project as they continue to post video reports edited in iMovie by a New Hampshire science teacher currently on a learning expedition to Antarctica. The
reports are being posted for students and fellow teachers
to watch and learn online.
PowerBooks have also made it to the top of the Himalayas. Mountain climber Chris Bonington, son, Daniel, brother Gerald, and nephew James climbed to the 6,194-meter peak of Danga in the far east of Nepal. They made a
family movie of their expedition using a PowerBook
and two Sony PD1 video cameras.
And while he may not be an adventurer per se, Craig Anderton, a performing musician and creative director of MusicPlayer.com, uses his
PowerBook to be productive even when he’s flying at 35,000. His Apple laptop lets him have a recording studio with him wherever he goes. And besides spending lots of time in Los Angeles, Anderson is often on the road as a performing musician who often guests with the German group, Rei$$dorf Force.
