everyone has to checkk out this CNN article about liquidmetal : http://www.cnn.com/2002/TECH/science/07/10/super.metal.ap/index.html i couldn't beleive it when i read this. it's more than twice as strong as titanium, it doesn't rust and can be cast like plastic!! holy flying cows!! what wonder metal is this??!! well, they've called it Liquidmetal. but it does have a weakness - heat. it softens when heated, but only at about 750 degrees Fahrenheit. i can't fully relate to that figure because i'm used to degrees celcius. but that has to be way below the temperatures reached in a TiBook? right? can anyone who knows fahrenheit do the calculations? and it can also be cast with precision down to 1 micron. thats damn small!! and at the moment, the raw materials cost about the same as titanium. will Apple switch to liquidmetal? hmm... 'PowerBook Liquidmetal' or 'Liquidmetal PowerBook'. yeah, i like the sound of that!! everything about it is only good news for the computer world, and the heat issue is being improved upon. for all those people who complain about the TiBooks rigidy and durability issues, this is your answer. think about what would happen if Apple used this. twice as strong as titanium!! and think about the enclosures they could have! Liquidmetal can be cast like plastic!! so, what does everyone think the chances of Apple using Liquidmetal are?? maybe not the 1GHz TiBooks, but could the 1.2GHz TiBooks have an all new Liquidmetal enclosure? this is so cool!!
