Poll Preview: Travelling the Old Road

Poll Preview: Travelling the Old Road -- With the release of the iMac, Apple started down a path of eliminating ports and other capabilities that had been standard on Macs since 1987's Macintosh SE. Although this move may have been the best one for the industry as a whole, it has caused consternation for individuals who must deal with existing peripherals. So, if you own or plan to buy a recent Mac, which (if any) old-style capabilities have you added or do you plan to add through an adapter, networked older Mac, or other hardware device? Register your vote on our home page, and tune in next week for our coverage of GeeThree.com's Stealth Serial Port.

This poll uses our new capability of being able to accept multiple answers via checkboxes, so you can choose among ADB, Floppy, LocalTalk, SCSI, and Serial. There's actually a sixth answer too: None, which means that the poll is actually asking two questions: if you plan to add any old-style capabilities, and if so, which ones. Obviously, it makes no sense to answer "None and Floppy" so we're relying on your common sense to not do that. We chose to include None among the answers because the results will then provide more interesting information and more people will be able to participate in the poll. [ACE]
