Crossed Chips and Cables -- In TidBITS-429, the excitement of new PowerBooks and a forthcoming PalmPilot MacPac caused Managing Editor Jeff Carlson's personal wires to suffer a temporary short. It had been reported by many sources that the low-end processor for the PowerBook G3 series is a PowerPC 740 (See "Apple Hardware Strategy: Alluring PowerBooks and iMac"). In fact, Apple's Developer Note released last week confirms that all of the PowerBook models are running on the PowerPC 750 chip; the 233 MHz version's main difference is that it lacks a backside cache. As for the PalmPilot gaffe (see "Claris Organizer Reincarnated as PalmPilot MacPac"), several readers pointed out that the adapter offered in the MacPac enables you to connect to a Macintosh's serial port, not the ADB port.
