Apple PodBrix; X800 back

In brief: Apple's founders get a miniature commemoration, AMD gets a Mac video card back in stock, and a Canadian site offers discounted Mac support. PodBrix, a maker of Apple-themed products based on Lego, has announced the imminent release of the Young Woz and Jobs Playset. The diorama depicts Apple co-founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak in 1972, working on an early computer; figures and details in the scene have been custom-painted, such as a thought bubble predicting the iPhone. A limited run of 300 units will go on sale August 29th at 9PM EST, costing $40 apiece.

Mac X800 back on sale

Though supplies are limited, AMD is once again selling the Radeon X800 XT Mac Edition. The graphics accelerator has 256MB of DDR3 memory, and supports features such as Core Image, Shader Model 2.0, and MPEG decoding. A Dual Link DVI port allows HDTV output and the use of 30-inch Cinema Displays. AMD is charging $300 for the card; if it runs out once again, shoppers can have the company notify them when it returns.

SupportMyMac cuts fees

The Ottawa, Canada-based SupportMyMac has launched a new website, and is granting 20 percent discounts to local students. Specifically, students of Algonquin College, Carleton University, La Cité Collégiale and the University of Ottawa are eligible upon presenting ID cards. SupportMyMac offers training in Mac software, such as iLife and Final Cut Pro, as well as technical help in person or through Remote Assistance.

    And then...

    ...the countdown to the flood of stop-motion skits hitting YouBoob begins. I predict 17 minutes before the first, maybe 10 if a quality script is in place.

    I wonder if they realized the potential for both legendary clips of humorous geek treks *and* humorous clips of legendary greek s**.

    I propose a list of suggested clip titles.

    1. "Who's the Boss?" 2. "That 70s Showboater" 3. "America's Next Top Ego" 4. "Disparate Houseguys" 5. "Dude, Where's My Gulfstream V Airplane?"

    And my top pick - "Dirty Jobs"

    Radeon X800 in stock?

    I went to the ATi Store and purchased the Radeon X800 but once again, they are saying they are out of stock. Did they really sell out again that fast?
