MacCentral reader Wyatt Webb is the brother-in-law of Mike Rich, the screenwriter of the new film, “Finding Forrester,” starring Sean Connery. Webb said the author used Final Draft on his PowerBook to write and re-write the script.
“I have been the primary computer consultant for my brother-in-law for a few years now (i.e. he and I talk about what the new models are and which would fit his needs best),” he said. “I convinced him to buy a Mac when he first bought a computer and he has owned Macs only, since. He now owns an iMac DV SE (Graphite) and a PowerBook (I forget the model).”
In other Mac sightings, the Jan. 22 “Time” magazine has a brief TechWatch article that introduces readers to an
expedition undertaken by Ann Bancroft and Liv Arnesen
across Antarctica. The “Time” article mentions that a PowerBook with a satellite uplink is used to log the journey, reports Frank Piccolo.
