Apple's new PowerBook 150 doesn't work properly with most internal modems, according to Global Village, makers of the PowerPort modems. Apparently Apple's original 2400 bps fax/data PowerBook modem works, but that's about it, even though Apple intended for all modems designed for 100-series PowerBooks to work. The problem seems to be related to the power supplied to the modem through the internal port. Global Village has been working with Apple to solve the problem, and expects a software fix will be available soon. [MHA]
