Apple's new computers threat to national security?
from the PR! dept
Apple is calling their new G4 a supercomputer on a chip because it can do a gigaflop of floating point operations. Apparently the US government has restricted access to the computer due to the speed. I wonder how much they had to PAY the US government to get that embargo?
Good computer… brilliant PR. I still want one. 😉

how much faster?
So, if the G4 is a “supercomputer”, does that mean it a Mac will finally draw web pages faster than my windows machine? I used to really dig Macs, but then I started using Win95 and realized everything got way faster (including crashes). I will say that Netscape for Linux draws pages faster then anything, even on my $600 eMachines.
