It seems like every new iteration of Apple’s notebooks, there’s speculation about when the company might add integrated 3G data to the mix. It still isn’t happening just yet, but that doesn’t mean Cupertino isn’t entertaining the notion -- as evidenced by this 2007 MacBook Pro prototype which has turned up on eBay.
When you get broadband, your internet service provider (ISP) normally supplies you with a broadband modem. This, plus your Mac, is the simplest network you can have, and for lots of people, it’s all the network they need. If you have DSL broadband -- the most common kind -- it’s delivered to your house through the phone line. At the phone socket, you plug in a filter that splits the frequency range so that the lower 4KHz is used by voice phone calls and the rest is sent to the modem.
Just because we love our iPods, iPhones and Intel-powered
Macs doesn’t mean we don’t still pine for the days of old, when our Apple logos
had a bit more pizzazz, we were encouraged to venture outside the lines, and Steve’s
wardrobe had more than just turtlenecks in it. So take a trip with us down memory lane as we relive everything that was great about Apple--and keep your eyes peeled for turtles, dogcows and toasted bunnies.
