Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Apple is today expected to launch the next versions in its range of iMacs. The company is keeping mum about the launch – or C2 revision as it has been named - but has been unable to stop reports popping up all over the Web. It is believed that the colourful computers will be announced by interim CEO Steve Jobs at a press conference in San Francisco today, news service TechWeb reported. The machines are expected to have similar styling to the existing iMacs and to come in the five familiar translucent colours. One Web site, Appleinsider.com, had been displaying what it claimed to be press shots of the new products – codenamed Kihei - since last month. But it was forced to remove them as Apple started threatening legal action. The new iMacs are expected to be available in different configurations, with faster PowerPC G3 chips at 350, 400 and 450MHz. The 400 and 450MHz machines are said to include Apple's new wireless technology – AirPort. Apple refused to comment on the launch or the Appleinsider.com Web site.
