Hey, all you Harry Potter fans. A screen saver is now
available from Warner Brothers, the company behind the upcoming Harry Potter film. It’s a 356 KB file. (Thanks to Doug Mackall for alerting us to this one.)
And let’s see what else is in the Mac sightings mailbag …
Rick Kirkman says his wife recently took one of their cats to a veterinary neurologist’s office in Phoenix, AZ. She was surprised to see that they had two Indigo iMacs in the front office, and every exam room was equipped with iBooks.
“They were all connected via Airport,” Kirksman says. “The neurologist typed some stuff into the iBook and sent it off to the printer for her. They were using some special software for vets on their Macs for all the diagnostic reports, prescriptions and billing uses.”
In the latest Crutchfield audio catalogue, there’s an ad for the company Web site that shows it being run in a Mac window, reports KC Kehoe.
Actor-director-writer Harold Ramis uses Macs in his office in Illinois, according to Victoria Stevens.
