Garmin is coming out with GPS software, TomTom is already on the Mac.
Leopard, the new Mac OS that comes his year will have some build in Google MAP elements build into the system.

You can download Bootcamp for free now and install it on any new Mac, no need to wait until Leopard comes out.
If you want good Wifi reception, the Macbook (plastic case) has a much stronger reception then the MacBook pro (aluminium case)

that is interesting. when i purchased the mbp,
the apple store genius suggested the wifi antenna was stronger on the larger screen models...
i've had great reception even inside the trailer.

my mbp is at the ihospital today...

getting a new screen and associated airport bits...

too many dead pixels and intermittent loss of the airport hardware connection...

'a level 2 repair'....there is no level 3

i'm awaiting word the operation was a success.


all of the true things that i am about to tell you are shameless lies. l.b.j.

we are here on earth to fart around. don't let anybody tell you any different. k.v.

TV on a PC

It's called "PC TV Cardbus". for those of us with older laptops( mine is 4 yrs old) It plugs into the PC card slot and then you hook up an antenna. I use a 40 yr old brown plastic-based rabbit-ears w/a felt bottom pad. It is only sold in England; I found a USA supplier on ebay ($47) I get our 10 vhf and uhf regional channels and now I don't carry a TV in our easily overloaded 65 caravel. gimme that old time lo tech, joe q
