iBook G3 (Late 2001): Include in the kit a screwdriver…

37% of Americans called iBook in a translucent housing is the most desired gift for Christmas. Apple barely had time to meet the demand for “ice”: each of them before sending the customer checked – screening out damaged items. But the cases, the return of the “ice” was even less prosperous than the PowerBook. The problem was to blame… greed. Of the 20 purchased personal computers, 19 were clones of the IBM PC (sometimes even more). Differences between them were few – the price could not be the most important argument in the struggle for the buyer.

All PC-shnye of the company, from tiny to giant, reduced costs. By all means available. Customers actually preferred the cheaper option. No frills design, nor ergonomics, or ease of upgrade or repair, no longer quoted.

Users of PC-shnyh of the clones announced their preferences the only correct one, and let them almost ideological base. Computer – consumables. He, through a year or two, become obsolete. Why pay more? As a rivet fell, but cheap and cheerful…

When all possible ways of cost reduction has already been applied, someone came up with a brilliant idea to save on the cost of production. It turned out that in the world there are lots of places where labor is practically free (by American standards), where the law does not limit the duration of the working day, no vacations, no insurance, and only one day off per week – but if you really need, unable to work and on weekends…

Those who shifted their production to countries with abundant labor resources and not frightened first choice was. You would have thought about the consequences and give up. But very soon the choice is no one left. “Carry or lose”.

For Apple moving production overseas was a necessary measure. This difficult case was referred to Tim cook. Tim managed. Despite mistakes and failures, in the end it all turned out – and the mechanism of cheaper Macs (and later other Apple creations) soon earned right.

I read somewhere, Tim cook, Apple’s expansion into overseas markets of cheap labor, interfered with mud. But we understand that this decision is not he, and that 1 / 20th of a share of the global market for Apple was a little… the Decision, after debate and discussion, was accepted, and its implementation was entrusted to Tim.

The most difficult part of the way was iBook in a translucent housing. Users didn’t notice anything… If you forget about June-July 2001, when almost every second iBook was returned for repair or replacement.

This is the fifth part of a series about the iBook, a list of the previous parts below:

First: Laptop candy style: iBook
Second: iBook: “something else”
Third: the World of Steve jobs iBook
Fourth: iBook G3 (Mid 2001): give a steer to designers?

About screwdriver included

At the Mac-native press for the years 2001 and 2002, about iBook “ice” written a good many things Apple… Efforts were not in vain: no one, not even provisionally close of the most trusted journalists about the problems with the marriage at that time, did not seem to know.

In one of the reviews (quite friendly), the author was advised to include the Apple supplied iBook screwdriver set, without which access to the most interesting (per user?) the insides of the “ice” was impossible.

In those days Apple was still embarrassed to send clients to “service centers”…

Screwdriver set really could use… But the kit had to add a tiny specially-trained men (friends?), because for an Amateur this set would be a source of danger.

Readers responded to this review. One girl said that no screwdriver is not necessary, it is sufficient coins of 10 cents, to connect the AirPort or increase the amount of RAM.

About access to the battery, no one even remembered seeing him as an inalienable right…

And the model 1 for $ 299, with 64 Megabytes of RAM (which is a CD-ROM), was accused of failing to work with Mac OS X. refer to the same girl with the 10-cent coin for help critics, for some reason, did not.

Again October…

I’m writing this on 16 October 2018. 17 years ago, in Cupertino, held a press conference (Press Event) on several topics, including upgrade iBook.

Another “no matter what” was successful. In a model with CD-ROM increased capacity of the hard disk (with 10 to 15 GB) and the motherboard is now soldered 128 MB of RAM. Now this model has been Mac OS X Ready.

Otherwise she hasn’t changed, and cost the same $ 299 1.

The model with CD-RW “gone.” Steve rarely explained the reasons for his actions, and this time was no exception. Simply stop its release and all. Many years later I learned that not all eating a iBook (Mid 2001) CD-RW waited for her delivery. Those who waited, hoped and believed, despite everything, were rewarded one fine October day in 2001, they suggested that instead of a CD-RW (1 $ 599), at no additional cost, the option with the Combo. This option is now worth 1 $ 699, but was more powerful – we’ll talk about it right now.

Reason? Like, defective CD-RW drives.

In the remaining two “may” have increased the processor frequency (600 MHz) and bus (100 MHz). iBook was noticeably “faster”. If you don’t load it with hard work, he almost not inferior to the professional counterpart.

iBook G3, when you connect an external monitor that does not support extended mode desktop space. An external monitor can duplicate your laptop’s screen, and all. Rumor has it that there are no technical reasons for this limitation was not, and Apple intentionally blocked this option to have the “ice” didn’t discourage buyers of the more expensive and powerful Titanium PowerBook.

In the basic configuration with DVD-ROM increased the hard disk space to 15 GB. The price remains the same – 1 $ 499.

Model Combo (DVD-ROM/CD-RW) fell to 1 $ 699, the capacity of the hard disk in the base was increased to 20 GB. This model has received the most loyal and patient customers who waited iBook (Mid 2001) a CD-RW.

Good deal not be called marriage…

Tim cook actually moved to Southeast Asia. The problems have not gone away. If everyone entering the United States “icicles” was immediately sent to the buyers, neither the beauty of the design, bright and clear screen, no other of their dignity, would not have saved Apple a lot of embarrassment.

First stage control was organized in the factories. To business joined the party organs of the PRC, as a cooperation with Apple and Taiwanese capitalists brought into the Treasury of China hard currency “for nothing.”

Exactly how it looked “cooperation”, I guess. Like you. It did not help.

There were several cascades of control, but still, the final check before heading to the purchaser, were approximately two out of three. What to do with scrapped computers, I don’t know. Disassembled for parts, returned to China or sold to countries with undemanding population?

Most likely the former.

  1. F*ckin’ amazing things here I am very glad to see your post Thanks a lot and i am looking forward to contact you Will you kindly drop me a mail?

  2. One more issue is that video games are generally serious in nature with the most important focus on finding out rather than entertainment Although, it has an entertainment aspect to keep your kids engaged, each game is usually designed to develop a specific expertise or programs, such as math or science Thanks for your posting

  3. The things i have seen in terms of laptop or computer memory is there are requirements such as SDRAM, DDR and so on, that must fit in with the specs of the mother board If the pc’s motherboard is kind of current while there are no os issues, replacing the memory literally requires under an hour or so It’s one of many easiest personal computer upgrade treatments one can imagine Thanks for spreading your ideas

  4. I have really learned result-oriented things by means of your website One other thing I’d like to say is the fact that newer personal computer operating systems have a tendency to allow more memory to be played with, but they as well demand more storage simply to operate If one’s computer can not handle far more memory plus the newest application requires that memory space increase, it could be the time to buy a new PC Thanks

  5. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed They say this man will rule the world under a one world igion called spiritualism

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace It will be a false peace for a period of time You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things They have their plans set in place It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name

    Here is wisdom Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name ” (Revelation 14:9-11)

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast

  7. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all igions under the worship of one God

    Biblical prophecy tells us that this Jewish Messiah who will take the stage will be the antichrist who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God (2 Thessalonians 2:4) For a time he will bring about a false peace, but Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (Matthew 24:15) then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be (Matthew 24:21)

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    Here is wisdom Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it Revelation 13:11-18 tells us that a false prophet will arise on the world scene doing miracles before men, deceiving them to receive this Mark Do not be deceived! We must grow strong in Jesus AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11)

    EITHER HUMAN INTELLIGENCE ULTIMATELY OWES ITS ORIGIN TO MINDLESS MATTER OR THERE IS A CREATOR – JOHN LENNOX

    We all know God exists Why? Because without Him, we couldn’t prove anything at all Do we live our lives as if we cannot know anything? No So why is God necessary? In order to know anything for certain, you would have to know everything, or have revelation from somebody who does Who is capable of knowing everything? God So to know anything, you would have to be God, or know God

    A worldview without God cannot account for the uniformity and intelligibility of nature And why is it that we can even reason that God is the best explanation for this if there is no God? We are given reason to know or reject God, but never to know that He does not exist

    It has been calculated by Roger Penrose that the odds of the initial conditions for the big bang to produce the universe that we see to be a number so big, that we could put a zero on every particle in the universe, and even that would not be enough to use every zero What are the odds that God created the universe? Odds are no such thing Who of you would gamble your life on one coin flip?

    Is there evidence that the Bible is the truth? Yes Did you know that the creation accounts listed in the book of Genesis are not only all correct, but are also in the correct chronological order? That the Bible doesn’t say the Earth was formed in six 24-hour days but rather six long but finite periods of time? That the Bible makes 10 times more creation claims than all major holy books combined with no contradictions, while these other books have errors in them? The Bible stood alone by concurring with the big bang saying, In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth (Genesis 1:1); and says our universe is expanding, thousands of years before scientists discovered these things Watch a potential life-changing video on the front page of WWW BIBLEFREEDOM COM with Astronomer(PhD) Hugh Ross explaining all these facts based on published scientific data He has authored many books, backed even by atheist scientists

    Jesus came to pay a debt that we could not; to be our legal justifier to reconcile us back to a Holy God; only if we are willing to receive Him: For the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23)

    God so loved the world that He gave us His only begotten son, so that whoever believes in Him, through faith, shall not perish, but have everlasting life Jesus says if we wish to enter into life to keep the commands! The two greatest commands are to love God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind; and your neighbor as yourself All the law hang on these commands We must be born of and lead by the Holy Spirit, to be called children of God, to inherit the kingdom If we are willing to humble ourselves in prayer to Jesus, to confess and forsake our sins, He is willing to give the Holy Spirit to those who keep asking of Him; giving us a new heart, leading us into all truth!

    Jesus came to free us from the bondage of sin The everlasting fire was prepared for the devil and his angels due to disobedience to God’s law If we do the same, what makes us any different than the devil? Jesus says unless we repent, we shall perish For sin is the transgression of the law We must walk in the Spirit so we may not fulfill the lusts of the flesh, being hatred, fornication, drunkenness and the like Whoever practices such things will not inherit the kingdom (Galatians 5:16-26) If we sin, we may come before Jesus to ask for forgiveness (1 John 2:1-2) Evil thoughts are not sins, but rather temptations It is not until these thoughts conceive and give birth by our own desires that they become sin (James 1:12-15) When we sin, we become in the likeness of the devil’s image, for he who sins is of the devil (1 John 3:8); but if we obey Jesus, in the image of God For without holiness, we shall not see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14)

    The oldest igion in the world is holiness through faith (James 1:27) What igion did Adam and Eve follow before the fall? Jesus, Who became the last Adam, what igion does He follow? Is He not holy? He never told us to follow the rituals and traditions of man but to take up our cross and follow Him (Luke 9:23) There are many false doctrines being taught leading people astray This is why we need the Holy Spirit for discernment Unlike igion, holiness cannot be created It is given to us from above by the baptism of the Spirit Jesus is more than a igion; He is about having a personal ationship with the Father Start by reading the Gospel of Matthew, to hear the words of God, to know His character and commandments Follow and obey Jesus, for He is the way, the truth, and the life!
