Crave speed? Crave FireWire? Apple has unveiled 500 MHz Power Mac G4s, 500 MHz FireWire enhanced PowerBooks, and revved-up iBooks. Crave games? An injunction against Connectix's Virtual Game Station has been lifted - but now Sony's suing over patents. Crave an alternative to FileMaker? Matt Neuburg examines the re-birth of the visual database environment Helix. We also note the releases of Eudora 4.3.1, GraphicConverter 3.8, and (ahem) Windows 2000.
