With last week's release of the Power Mac G4 and the Apple Cinema Display, Apple generated serious techno-lust in the Macintosh community. This week we look at the specs and the few annoying aspects of the Power Mac G4. Matt Neuburg also weighs in with a Tools We Use column on Menuette, which replaces menu names with icons, and we cover releases of GraphicConverter 3.7, MacTuner 2.1, SoundJam 1.1, Adobe InDesign, and LetterRip Pro 3.0.6.
