PowerBook trade-up reinstated? Last summer, we reported on a trade-up program for PowerBook 190 and 5300 computers. The offer ended August 31. A MacFixIt reader was told by Apple Tech Support on Friday that a new trade-up will start today. The trade-up is to a PowerBook G3 FireWire 400MHz for $1599.
4-port Serial AdapterKeyspan is now shipping its new USB 4-port Serial Adapter for an MSRP of $149. It allows 4 serial devices to be connected to a single USB port. Each of its male DB9 ports allows connection to RS232 serial devices at data rates up to 960 Kbps. Support for Mac OS X will be available in the 3rd quarter.
