Griffin Technology has introduced its ProSpeaker-Breakout Cable, which allows Mac owners to connect any set of home stereo speakers directly to a PowerMac G4 or LCD iMac. Designed for "Digital Audio PowerMacs" (running 500MHz or faster), it contains a pair of spring loaded speaker connectors for direcly connecting to speaker wire and is self-powered with no additional hardware or software required. It is $25. Griffin also released PowerMate Software 1.1 for Mac OS 9, which fixes numerous bugs and extends the usability of the wildly popular PowerMate, audio & video programmable USB controller.
