    Hello... I owned PowerMac 8500 about ten years ago. It was under System 7 as far as I remember. On Jan 1 of each year, a sign saying happy new year showed up when I turned on the computer. How come it does not appear under Mac OS X?

    Really! That's interesting. I've never seen that in all my years of using Macs.

    I'm not surprised OS X doesn't have it, as I recall Apple tightened easter eggs and stuff like that down a bit from what there was in OS 9 and earlier.

    They were. We'd flood the BBS's (with our Hayes 300-baud modems) seeing who found the latest eggs. Pretty much every OS, every app had them.

    Yeah, but you'll likely still be around when all the "Minority Report" toys are actually in use!
