View Full Version : Newton, The 2nd coming???

This is just a follow up to the intriguing new development concerning the, to be released tuesday, "hub"...I would just like to say that the device is most likely going to be handheld type device...an according to macrumors. there was a patent for something and it cant be coincidence that it involves apple and a portable device.
"GigaWire" --- what is it, if you know anything about it pls tell...

Most likely FireWire 2 will be called Gigawire

very doubtful... Giga means 1000, and firewire runs @ 800 megabits/second. I would think that this might have something to do with firewire, but not exactly firewire 2. Possibly a new wired connection to this "tablet"?

personally... i was also curious when the news first hit. checked all the sites twice.

then i read the little bit - "hint: its not a mac"

i just realised that its not worth it. im not going to overspeculte. because jsut in case i really do find out what it is.

this one is going to be too big to spoil for myself.
