    maybe it's some old thing they were toying with the idea of, and never executed, or maybe it's to trick us!

    It does look like an iTools prototype. Could this be a private server that SJ uses for iTools/.mac presentations during his keynotes?

    wait... it can't be... steve jobs didn't come back with the whole "i" thing until 97, and the company was completely changed then. Can't be.

    I noticed that on vic's page he says something about OS X so it has been clearly updated since 1996 or when ever. I sent some of them emails ill see if i get replies.

    Oh yeah and there was also privite.apple.com which happened to have some old "Top serect" stuff in on it. Now its blocked. It was talked about here before

    http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=9715

    I find this to be quite interesting, the whole concept. Some random servers linking back to some random apple url running in some dusty old basement in who knows where. Or maybe even in the hart of "Apple Land" Steve Jobs office even! They're tring to fool us, its a diversion!

    Yeah, I'd like to know that, too!
    But it's not a previous version of iTools, 'cause those people that have their pages there actually work at Apple... but why waves.apple.com? weird stuff!

    Yeah It used to have alot of stuff on it such as the p58 info. I posted a thread about a .sit file full of pdf files of the p58 and someone notived that one of the files i had mentioned contained info about firewire 3. After that everything mysteriously went away and now there is only a folder of vendors and you cannot access each vendor's folder w/o a password.

    htp://www.private.apple.com i just realized this address no longer redirects you to the right site go here https://private.apple.com/opseng/

    CyberDog was Apple's first (and only) attempt at a web browser. It was kinda like Netscape Communicator, as in it had many internet utilities in one, but it also included things like FTP. But, it failed, just like many other Apple technologies which were maybe just too ahead of its time. Other failed Apple technologies include the Newton, the eMate, and OpenDoc (this was the technology CyberDog relied on, and since OpenDoc failed, CyberDog failed).


    Well, if you wanna know more, just ask.

    Okay :D
    Well, what was OpenDoc? Something like the Mozilla Engine, a browser with open standards?

    OpenDoc was a cross-platform software development technology which concentrated on the documents, rather than the application, letting users customize almost each and every thing (such as placement of buttons), to his/her will. It did sound great, but in the end, it just made life hard for both developers and users.

    Anything else?
