Improve Apple Services with AirPort Base Stations

You can make iChat file transfers, iDisk, and Back to My Mac work better by turning on a setting with Apple AirPort base stations released starting in 2003. Launch AirPort Utility, select your base station, click Manual Setup, choose the Internet view, and click the NAT tab. Check the Enable NAT Port Mapping Protocol (NAT-PMP) box, and click Update. NAT-PMP lets your Mac OS X computer give Apple information to connect back into a network that's otherwise unreachable from the rest of the Internet. This speeds updates and makes connections work better for services run by Apple.

Apple Posts $61 Million Q3 Profit -- Apple posted a $61 million profit during its third fiscal quarter of 2001, meeting analysts' expectations, although the company warned that the current economic slowdown could cause future revenue to fall short of forecasts. Apple's sales for the quarter were $1.475 billion, down over 29 percent from the same quarter a year ago, but up from the previous quarter's $1.43 billion. Apple says it shipped 827,000 Macs at a profit margin of 29.4 percent, with international sales accounting for 44 percent of the total. The company maintains more than $4.2 billion in cash, and Apple offset a one-time $7 million charge for its acquisition of PowerSchool, Inc., a Web-based student information system, with $7 million in investment income. Compared to other computer makers, Apple stock has been faring well recently, buoyed in part by the high-profile opening of retail stores, the record-setting debut of the new iBook, and strong sales in education.
