ok so I just moved into the georgia state dorms which (finally) have consolidated their internet, tv, and phone services to one company called purdigital. this is nice because now i get digital cable and way faster internet. anyway, i plugged in the box top cable decoder thing today and it went through a startup routine and part of it was a strangely familiar blue screen with a black with white border mouse pointer in the middle of the screen. http://thecreativechaos.com/otherstuff/recording.mp4 (1.3mb, its h264 and you have to download the file and drop any extra file extensions safari adds, I think i uploaded it using the wrong format or something) it seems to me that this indicates that its a dumbed down mac in there. fyi: its about 10 in x 5 in x 1 in. it has lots of ports on the back: 2 USB digital and analogue audio outs vga out s-video out composite video out cable/antenna in cable out WAN ethernet LAN ethernet and SMP phone line (i dont know what thats for) sadly im on a powerbook and dont have a wired mouse or keyboard to plug in to see if it does anything or to use some open firmware keystokes. any speculation from the rumor mongering masses?
