iBook’and move to Mac OS X

At MacWorld Expo 2002 Steve introduced the iMac “Lamp” G4 and iBook G3 14-inch screen, and announced the advent of Mac OS X – which now has become part of the system “” default on all new Macs. iMac G4 and iBook’and became the first. Prior to 2002, the exhibition MacWorld conducted two times a year. In January in San Francisco, usually at the beginning of the month and during the summer (July or August) on the East coast of the United States, until 1997, in Boston, from 1998 to 2001 in new York. In January 2002 MacWorld Expo was held in new York. Apple never participated in the exhibitions of MacWorld on the East coast…

The January MacWorld Expo in new York is like a snow storm with Blizzard and frost down to -20 in mid-July, or the tropical heat on new year’s night in Moscow.

But the event took place, Steve was in shock, and on the geographical surprises forgotten very quickly. The exhibition opened on 7 January and I still do not understand what was most important to her: the next step is “modern operating systems” into reality, or iMac G4 in the form of a lamp, causing in memory of”Luxo Jr.”, the first ever computer-animated film, nominated for an Oscar.

By the way, in the article about the iMac G4, the author succumbed to the stereotype, and said the presentation was in San Francisco. No, it was in new York a few months after September 11.

The form factor of the iMac G4 (the computer in the stand of the lamp and the LCD display in place of the lamp) did not force the inhabitants to seek and not find the computer next to him, but was technically smarter and more rational than that very soon replaced it. LCD screen filling the whole computer in a thin and inconvenient to service housing engineering acrobatics. And significant difficulties, it’s pointless…

But it worked, because imitated!

This is the sixth part series about the iBook, a list of the previous parts below:

First: Laptop candy style: iBook
Second: iBook: “something else”
Third: the World of Steve jobs iBook
Fourth: iBook G3 (Mid 2001): give a steer to designers?
Fifth: iBook G3 (Late 2001): Include in the kit a screwdriver…

iBook G3 14-inch screen

In an unexpected place, and quite unexpectedly (in my opinion, even a rumor about something that was not), Steve came out with a new model iBook. It was a new model, with new ID model PowerBook4,2. However, these mundane details are not poets, and Steve on the ID didn’t say anything.

Strange: in addition to TFT-display with a diagonal of 14.1 inches (35.8 cm), and more RAM (256 Megabytes in the base package) this iBook was no different from the rest iBook’s (Late 2001): the same PowerPC 750сх c clock frequency of 600 MHz, the same 100 MHz clock frequency bus, the same optical disc drive DVD-ROM/CD-RW and the “top” iBook (Late 2001), which Apple called Combo.

The same graphics card (ATI Rage Mobility 128 2x AGP 8 MB video memory), which were underwhelming, especially in patients real computer games, and even the resolution it was exactly the same: 1024×768.

As well as him “Junior” 12-inch brethren, the new iBook does not support extended mode desktop by connecting an external monitor. Only “mirror”, that is, the external monitor display the same thing that was on the iBook display.

If it was done on purpose, for fear of manifestations of cannibalism from the iBook G3 in relation to the more expensive professional line PowerBook G4. I do not know, officially, it’s because no one confirmed.

Let my grumbling will not mislead you: it was a very good computer, and its screen was one of the best screens at the time. It is possible to sit for 10-12 hours several days in a row my eyes do not tired.

Just such an unusually conventional model with its own identifier. Unusual.

The same inscription under the lower border of the screen: iBook. All iBook’Ah ice with the G3 no more symbols of the model. Not including the computer to find out its modification is almost impossible (in my opinion, it’s wrong). 14-inch iBook, for five and a half months, can be distinguished from all the others, if I had to compare, or if the hand was the line – not even including.

In may 2002… It’s still a secret.

Had iBook G3 14” a few differences: because of the larger screen size of its body was larger, and weighed in a pound more than the 12-inch switchblade stiletto (2.7 kg instead of 2.2).

And its period of Autonomous operation was, according to some sources – 5 hours, others 6, and according to witnesses, three and a half hours (if you don’t watch DVD or burn to CD) it kept. And then all four.

Was he another historically important feature, which its creators are not very guilty. This…

Mac OS X “default”

Perhaps the most important event of MacWorld Expo 2002 was still not iLamp (the Lamp Steve jobs in Russian translation), and this important and historic step toward a modern operating system that the Bitten Apple fans waited for almost 15 years, and was several times from her in two steps, but it didn’t happen.

Steve was not trying to deceive anyone. March 24, 2001, announcing the release of Mac OS 10.0, he honestly admitted that this version of the system is not completely final and ready. To its readiness remained about a year. Otherwise, it is impossible.

About six months went 10.1, a free upgrade, with hundreds of bug fixes in various parts of the system. When you view the list of fixed bugs there is a question: and whether it was something that worked in 10.0?

But 10.1 was not ready for adult life. Officially, it was released on 25 September 2001, but download it from Apple’s site was impossible (not posted) and the remaining channels of its distribution was at least operational. Many have received it in their hands only a month and a half, November 12, and even later.

November 12 came with Mac OS 10.1.1. And also didn’t fit the role of the main system. It also had dozens of (not less than one hundred, in my opinion) fixes. And very noticeable change.

Maybe you know what’s inside Mac OS X is another operating system without a graphical user interface, Unix, open source of the BSD clan, named Darwin. So, in 10.1 was Darwin 1.4.1, but in 10.1.1 – Darwin 5.1.

But 10.1.2 examination passed. Published on 21 December 2001 and 7 January 2002 and became the operating system “default” to multiple computers. That is, if nothing is done, the computer starts not with the classic Mac OS (Mac OS 9.2.1), and “modern”.

Of course, a spare round in the form of Mac OS 9.2.1 was still at hand, but still. Soon the “classics” updated to 9.2.2… which became its latest version.

Mac OS 10.1.2 became the “default system” in the iMac G4 and iBook G3 14”.

But besides them:

in the iBook G3/500 (Late 2001), the price of which on 7 January 2002 have been reduced to 1 $ 199;
in the iBook G3/600 (Late 2001) all modifications, DVD-ROM and Combo.

Otherwise, the 12-inch iBook remained unchanged.

It was believed that the G3 and Mac OS X – “not a couple”. G3, even in the embodiment G3e (PowerPC 750сх), it “pulls”. Computers with PowerPC 750сх the perfect machines for Mac OS X was not, it is true – but tens of thousands of users, more or less successfully, used this imperfect combination.

Otherwise we wouldn’t have known that running MS Word (Mac OS X) on Macs with G4 takes 2 seconds, and the iBook G3/500 – 6 or 7 seconds… My MacBook Pro runs Pages in 30 seconds, and nothing. Disgusting, of course – but not a tragedy.

  1. This design is incredible! You certainly know how to keep a reader amused Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost HaHa!) Excellent job I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it Too cool!

  2. Thanks for discussing your ideas I’d personally also like to express that video games have been ever evolving Better technology and enhancements have assisted create sensible and active games All these entertainment video games were not actually sensible when the real concept was first being attempted Just like other designs of technologies, video games as well have had to progress by means of many years This itself is testimony for the fast growth of video games

  3. Things i have seen in terms of pc memory is always that there are specifications such as SDRAM, DDR and so forth, that must fit in with the technical specs of the mother board If the pc’s motherboard is fairly current while there are no operating-system issues, replacing the storage space literally normally takes under an hour or so It’s on the list of easiest pc upgrade methods one can imagine Thanks for revealing your ideas

  4. I have learned result-oriented things through your website One other thing I’d really like to say is the fact that newer personal computer operating systems tend to allow much more memory to be used, but they in addition demand more ram simply to perform If someone’s computer cannot handle far more memory plus the newest software program requires that ram increase, it might be the time to buy a new PC Thanks

  5. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed They say this man will rule the world under a one world igion called spiritualism

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace It will be a false peace for a period of time You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things They have their plans set in place It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name

    Here is wisdom Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name ” (Revelation 14:9-11)

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast

  6. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all igions under the worship of one God

    Biblical prophecy tells us that this Jewish Messiah who will take the stage will be the antichrist who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God (2 Thessalonians 2:4) For a time he will bring about a false peace, but Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (Matthew 24:15) then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be (Matthew 24:21)

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name

    Here is wisdom Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it Revelation 13:11-18 tells us that a false prophet will arise on the world scene doing miracles before men, deceiving them to receive this Mark Do not be deceived! We must grow strong in Jesus AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11)

    EITHER HUMAN INTELLIGENCE ULTIMATELY OWES ITS ORIGIN TO MINDLESS MATTER OR THERE IS A CREATOR – JOHN LENNOX

    We all know God exists Why? Because without Him, we couldn’t prove anything at all Do we live our lives as if we cannot know anything? No So why is God necessary? In order to know anything for certain, you would have to know everything, or have revelation from somebody who does Who is capable of knowing everything? God So to know anything, you would have to be God, or know God

    A worldview without God cannot account for the uniformity and intelligibility of nature And why is it that we can even reason that God is the best explanation for this if there is no God? We are given reason to know or reject God, but never to know that He does not exist

    It has been calculated by Roger Penrose that the odds of the initial conditions for the big bang to produce the universe that we see to be a number so big, that we could put a zero on every particle in the universe, and even that would not be enough to use every zero What are the odds that God created the universe? Odds are no such thing Who of you would gamble your life on one coin flip?

    Is there evidence that the Bible is the truth? Yes Did you know that the creation accounts listed in the book of Genesis are not only all correct, but are also in the correct chronological order? That the Bible doesn’t say the Earth was formed in six 24-hour days but rather six long but finite periods of time? That the Bible makes 10 times more creation claims than all major holy books combined with no contradictions, while these other books have errors in them? The Bible stood alone by concurring with the big bang saying, In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth (Genesis 1:1); and says our universe is expanding, thousands of years before scientists discovered these things Watch a potential life-changing video on the front page of WWW BIBLEFREEDOM COM with Astronomer(PhD) Hugh Ross explaining all these facts based on published scientific data He has authored many books, backed even by atheist scientists

    Jesus came to pay a debt that we could not; to be our legal justifier to reconcile us back to a Holy God; only if we are willing to receive Him: For the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23)

    God so loved the world that He gave us His only begotten son, so that whoever believes in Him, through faith, shall not perish, but have everlasting life Jesus says if we wish to enter into life to keep the commands! The two greatest commands are to love God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind; and your neighbor as yourself All the law hang on these commands We must be born of and lead by the Holy Spirit, to be called children of God, to inherit the kingdom If we are willing to humble ourselves in prayer to Jesus, to confess and forsake our sins, He is willing to give the Holy Spirit to those who keep asking of Him; giving us a new heart, leading us into all truth!

    Jesus came to free us from the bondage of sin The everlasting fire was prepared for the devil and his angels due to disobedience to God’s law If we do the same, what makes us any different than the devil? Jesus says unless we repent, we shall perish For sin is the transgression of the law We must walk in the Spirit so we may not fulfill the lusts of the flesh, being hatred, fornication, drunkenness and the like Whoever practices such things will not inherit the kingdom (Galatians 5:16-26) If we sin, we may come before Jesus to ask for forgiveness (1 John 2:1-2) Evil thoughts are not sins, but rather temptations It is not until these thoughts conceive and give birth by our own desires that they become sin (James 1:12-15) When we sin, we become in the likeness of the devil’s image, for he who sins is of the devil (1 John 3:8); but if we obey Jesus, in the image of God For without holiness, we shall not see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14)

    The oldest igion in the world is holiness through faith (James 1:27) What igion did Adam and Eve follow before the fall? Jesus, Who became the last Adam, what igion does He follow? Is He not holy? He never told us to follow the rituals and traditions of man but to take up our cross and follow Him (Luke 9:23) There are many false doctrines being taught leading people astray This is why we need the Holy Spirit for discernment Unlike igion, holiness cannot be created It is given to us from above by the baptism of the Spirit Jesus is more than a igion; He is about having a personal ationship with the Father Start by reading the Gospel of Matthew, to hear the words of God, to know His character and commandments Follow and obey Jesus, for He is the way, the truth, and the life!

  7. Thanks for the tips you talk about through this web site In addition, lots of young women which become pregnant tend not to even seek to get health insurance coverage because they worry they probably would not qualify Although a few states at this moment require that insurers present coverage regardless of pre-existing conditions Charges on most of these guaranteed plans are usually larger, but when with the high cost of health care bills it may be some sort of a safer route to take to protect one’s financial potential
