Makes You Want To Shout -- Cypress Research Corporation announced last week that Apple plans to bundle a version of its MegaPhone screen-based telephony software with new Performa 5200CD and 6200CD. MegaPhone works with the Global Village TelePort Gold internal modems installed on these machines to provide an answering machine, a full-duplex speakerphone, a contact manager, Apple event support, and automatic arbitration between incoming voice and data calls. Users of MegaPhone for Performa will be able to upgrade to the full version of MegaPhone for $50, which has advanced features and integration with PowerTalk, popular contact managers, and applications like FileMaker Pro.
