Power Mac G4 Power Supply Exchange Program

When the Mirrored Drive Door (MDD) Power Mac G4s made their debut in August 2002, many consumers complained about the excessive noise associated with the new machines. This problem has been resolved in the newest Power Macs, released in January 2003, but those who had purchased the first MDD models were stuck with a noisy machine.

Until now.

Apple has started a program that will allow Mac users who purchased the August 2002 MDD Power Macs to switch out their current power supply and system fans for the new, quieter versions. The cost to the consumer: $19.95 (USD) shipping and handling for the do-it-yourself kit. This includes return postage for the original components.
The program begins today and ends June 30th, 2003.

Cheers to Apple for stepping up and offering a solution to the problem. (chm)

The Switzerland AirPort Extreme Story In Short

1) Apple unveiled their 802.11g hardware at MWSF 2003 in early January.
2) Dataquest (biggest of Switzerland's Apple resellers) couldn't get AirPort Extreme cards, because
3) Bacom (the Swiss office for everything you want and doesn't get approved) hadn't approved yet 802.11g use in Switzerland.
4) People working for Bacom obviously use Apple computers. And they buy at Dataquest in Bern, Switzerland.
5) Bacom has now accelerated the approval of 802.11g.
6) Dataquest will soon get AirPort Extreme hardware.

So, basically, Apple has accelerated the adoption of 802.11g in Switzerland. Ain't that great? ;) (fryke)
