Freei.net releases beta of ISP service app

Kjell Stenberg noticed that Freei.net has posted a fourth beta of its ISP service software for the Macintosh.

"You've got a banner bar with ads, but it's reasonably fast and I never get the busy signal or have connection problems now with their new 2b4 release (v1.3, the current one sucks bigtime, but this new beta is holding up extremely well on my 604e 210Mhz Mac running OS 9.0.4). You can ... use IE or Netscape [and] use the Software Update Control Panel (that used to crash the computer w/ Freei.net)."

Apple to give iMovie for other FireWire comps

Apple to give iMovie for other FireWire comps

Apple today announced that it is now offering its consumer-level iMovie 1.0.2 software as a free download for PowerBook G3 and PowerMac G4 users. The 19 MB download does not include the tutorial, which is included with the CD and can be purchased for $20. There had previously been some controversy surrounding the fact that users of these high-end, FireWire-equipped Macs had to purchase expensive software solutions in order to gain the movie-making abilities that the company advertises. [updated]

[Bob Gore] "I can happily report that Apple's iMovie download works successfully with my Wallstreet PowerBook G3 + Ratoc FireWire card and my 7500, retro-fitted with a G3 CPU and FireWire PCI card. Both running the latest OS & FireWire versions. I'm pleased (and not a small bit surprised) that Apple has graciously accommodated even its older units in this fashion." [Phil Dokas] "I was a little upset that Apple decided not to make iMovie available for the PowerMac G3, seeing as how it's got FireWire too, so I decided to download it, just to try. Lo and behold it worked. It installed, launched and runs without a hitch on my B&W PowerMac G3/400. However, since I don't have a DV camera I can't try importing anything, but I doubt there's any problems there. I've imported images, and made audio tracks, the whole works without a hitch."
