Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Apple's latest generation of PowerBook G3 notebooks are not compatible with the company's own much-touted FireWire connectivity standard, according to a report on troubleshooting Web site Bug.Net. The notebook's manual claims that the computer will work with the latest version of Apple's FireWire software, 2.1. However, when Bug.Net tried to install the software, the installed replied that it was unable to do so. "This program cannot run on your computer," it apparently said. The new PowerBooks don't actually possess FireWire ports of their own, but Apple claims they will use add-on supplier Newer Technology's FireWire-To-Go PC Card. And, according to the report, Apple admitted that FireWire doesn't work on the new machine. ®
