Mac OS X Public Beta is out! Steve Jobs's keynote at Apple Expo 2000 in Paris last week featured the Mac OS X Public Beta and introductions of more powerful iBooks in new colors. Also in this issue, we talk with Macintosh author and veteran David Blatner about playing with today's technology yesterday, and note releases of MindControl 1.1 and WebSTAR Server Suite 4.3. This week's poll: Do you say "Mac OS Ten" (like Apple wants) or "Mac OS Ex?"
