Mark H. Anbinder wrote about some network management packages at Macworld Expo last week, but didn't see GraceLAN (through no fault of his, Technology Works may not have shown up)

Couple of Things

Once again I have a few interesting items that don't quite merit their own articles. Since San Francisco's Macworld Expo just ended, I figured you would wish to read about what was there and what was not

MacUser’s Editors’ Choice Awards

The evening before Macworld Expo opened, MacUser announced this year's winners of its series of coveted industry awards. 1990 was, the editors' introduction tells us, "a year of great beginnings in areas such as 24-bit color, cross-platform connectivity, virtual reality, 3-D modeling, and video." Each category has a winner and two honorable mention recipients; we will only provide a list of the winners themselves

Stupid Net Tricks

Among the product categories that were evident at Macworld, if you took the trouble to categorize things, were neat networking products. None of them were earth-shattering, but each takes us a step forward in Macintosh networking. Closest to earth-shattering, I suppose, is Apple's new line of Ethernet products, which set a new standard for ease of installation and flexibility

Happy New Year!

What better time to look back at the fun-filled events of 1990 than now. You were having fun, weren't you? Actually, a few people suggested an article like this in their survey responses, and hey, we respond to feedback (well at least most of the time :-))

Stuff That Installer

There's an odd trend I've been noticing. People have been complaining about StuffIt Deluxe's installer and several months ago, people complained about StuffIt Classic's installer

VCR Backups

I'm sure many people have thought of doing disk backups to a VCR tape, particularly the poorer crowd that can't afford all sorts of snazzy backup hardware

Cut Rate Borland

I've been getting all sorts of offers in the mail from Borland. Borland isn't well known in the Mac market, but it is a big player in the PC market and its spreadsheet, Quattro Pro, may be the best one for the PC despite Lotus 1-2-3 and Microsoft's Excel

Out of the MarketPlace

You may or may not have heard of Lotus MarketPlace:Households yet. It's a CD-ROM disk from Lotus that lists over 120 million names in over 80 million households in the United States

With all the effort that many of you have put in responding to our survey, we hate to ask you to write yet another letter. However, you may want to do so depending on your experiences with viruses

Christmas Things

Before anything else, we'd like to wish you all a very happy holiday season, wherever you are and whatever holiday you'd like celebrate. Enjoy. Well, we've been sick, and it was a slow week, and we don't expect much more to happen next week either as everything stops for Christmas

Expo Expectations

Unlike the Macworld Expo in Boston this year, the San Francisco Expo promises to show some products that haven't been thoroughly squeezed of interest by the press (including us :-))
