iTunes Apps Tab in Landscape?

If your iPad is locked in landscape orientation when in the charging dock, apps in the Apps tab of iTunes will display in landscape orientation. (This also occurs when your iPad is not in the dock but connected to iTunes via the charging cable while in landscape orientation).

A Tsunami By Any Other Name?

A Tsunami By Any Other Name? Dyed-in-the-wool Apple fans may remember Apple's code name for the new Power Mac 8500 was Tsunami. Rumors are now circulating about a machine called TidalWave from - you guessed it - Power Computing. Reportedly, TidalWave is a PowerPC 604-based Mac compatible that may be available as early as October of this year, based on the Apple Power Mac 9500. TidalWave reportedly unbundles the PCI slots from the main motherboard, making it possible for the machine to carry PCI slots, NuBus slots, or both. Customers would be able to choose how many of each type of slot they want their units to have, and there may be a less-expensive slot-less version as well. As with existing Power Computing machines, communications and video are added through daughter boards; the CPU chip itself is on a replaceable card, with the possibility of multi-processor machines and/or upgrades in the future.
