If you haven't caught up to it yet, I wanted to alert followers of this forum that here's a interesting, well-done weekly podcast dealing with non-current Macs. Two collectors discuss a "retro Mac of the week," talk about Apple collectables, point out some interesting eBay finds, and spend a few minutes providing a historical perspective on current Mac news.

Anyway, they've been announcing in advance which Mac will be the retro Mac of the week, and the coming show will feature the Cube. The show is generally posted Sunday afternoon, so look for it on 4/22. You can listen or subscribe through iTunes or directly on their website: http://www.RetroMacCast.com

Methinks owning/modding Cube's might be considered retro-computing, eh? LOL...

Ha ha. Actually I was also wondering why the Cube was covered in the Retro Mac podcast. I personally would not consider any G4-based Macs 'retro' yet.

Well, the Cube is downright ancient in computer years. Most computers are obsolete after 3 years. 8 year old high-technology is definitely retro. (We're just spoiled because we work on Macs. The PC users I know buy new machines every 2 to 3 years to stay current.)

Of course, can you name any computer other than an Apple, that, after 8 years, is not only a viable machine, but upgradable to compete with current gen machines?

...I didn't think so. wink.gif
