PowerPC Intro

by Mark H. Anbinder, News Editor --

Technical Support Coordinator, BAKA Computers

The 21st century is close at hand, and we're impressed that Apple is doing a better job of taking advantage of technology at its disposal. Rather than inviting just a select few to next Monday's gala introduction of the Power Mac line, Apple is "inviting" the whole world, or at least the northern hemisphere, by making the introduction available for satellite downlink.

We're told that the live satellite telecast is scheduled for 10:00 AM Eastern Standard Time (EST is GMT -5) on Monday 14-Mar-94 and should run approximately an hour and a half. A repeat telecast is scheduled for 1:00 PM EST the same day.

The Ku band telecasts will be carried by the G-Star satellite on 2/7H, at a frequency of 12096.
