Spiegel: Birthday - Internet gets 30
In his article, Detlef Borchers describes the long way to the info highway.
"Thirty years ago, US-American scientists for the first time connected a computer to an IMP (Interface Message Processor), and by this, created the foundation for today's networking technology. With the historical connection, the long birth of Internet began." (Full article - German - at the title link.) (ps) (Translation: (unk)

driver software for laser
Bytei & McScotty (Pascal & Rainer) write:
For about 6 years we run a small laser show rental. Our lasers are exclusively driven by Amigas (1200 50 MHz 10 MB 68030+Co). Sadly, our driver software leaves a lot to be desired! The developer of the software (Edward Skorus) has given us sourcecodes and rights. For a long time now we are looking for alternatives or someone able to expand the driver software. Is there someone among your readers who knows this stuff, or knows someone who knows? (ps) (Translation: (unk)

Foundation News
A new update will be released ASAP. The last version 1.25 was not released because this update has been done for the new version 'Foundation Directors Cut', and was not fully compatible to the old 'Foundation' version. Paul Burkey works on the new Update 1.26 and is trying to make this update compatible with the old version, too. Moreover, Paul informs also that he is increasing his work on 'Foundation's Edge', and that this work is taking most of his time. (ps) (Translation: (unk)

Phase5: Next Generation PowerPC G4 processor boards
Phase 5 writes:
TOP NEWS 02.09.99:Join the exclusive club of GigaFLOPS users now - with the Next Generation PowerPC G4 processor boards from phase 5 digital products!

Faster than expected just five weeks ago, Motorola's new PowerPC G4 (XPC7400) processor powerhorse is now shipping! We have therefore immediately decided to make this brand-new technology available to all Amiga 1200/3000/4000 users, by shipping all of our upcoming next generation CYBERSTORM and BLIZZARD boards with these new high-performance G4 CPUs!

Because of that, only with our new products series
  • Your Amiga will get the most up-to-date CPU which was ever available in an Amiga, including any upgrade processor boards
  • Your Amiga will offer a processing performance which is superior to nearly any available personal computer system today - supercomputer performance on your desktop! Plus even the option for symmetrical Multi-Processing with Dual-XPC7400 modules for those who need the real bang....
  • Your Amiga is technologically up-to-date - with powerful hardware, expansion options and the support of highly modern Operating Systems including backwards compatibility to the Amiga OS 3.x.

Please also take a look on the updated product specifications below, as well as on Motorola's website http://www.mot.com/SPS/PowerPC/ !

For all Amiga users, who now finally decide to buy a next generation CYBERSTORM or BLIZZARD G4 board, we have extended the preoder program with significant discounts one last time until October 15, 1999. Don't miss that final deadline!

IMPORTANT: If you have already ordered a G3 board, you do not have to place a new order or act. All customers, who have ordered a 400MHz G3 version in the preorder program, will receive a 400MHz G4 version of the CYBERSTORM or BLIZZARD G4 board at no extra cost. Customers of a 300MHz G3 version will receive a separate notification from us. (ps) (Translation: (unk)

Collas out as Amiga president
According to ZDNet, Jim Collas is no longer president of Amiga.
Summary of the article:
Jim Collas leaves the company for personal reasons, and has registered his 118.000 stock shares for sale. Moreover it is reported that Gateway paid 13 million US-Dollar for 47 Amiga patents, and that Collas himself asked Gateway president Ted Waitt for the Job at Amiga. He moreover asked to run Amiga as a seperate company.
Tom Schmidt takes over the post from Collas. Before his joining Amiga, Schmidt has worked as General Manager for Allied Signal. He was not available for comment.
PS:
CNet also reports: Gateway's Amiga president jumps ship
The article states that Collas' leaving does not imply a change in plans, and the planned route will be continued by Schmidt. (ps) (Translation: (unk)

Hello All,

I regret to inform that Bill McEwen told me as of

Amiga.  Sigh.

I called him about some newsletter plans he had
in mind, only to receive yet another bit of
disappointing news.

Regards,

FMdriver Update Version 1.12
Stefan Robl writes:
The FMdriver packet has been improved further:
All programs can now save in IFF format, too (8 as well as 24 bit). All problems with flicker or lines in small resolutions should be fixed, the FPS rate now looks much more stable, too. A serious bug has been removed that occured when there was no Prism24 module connected. The FMRecorder now offers several file formats, so it will work with every video software. Small changes and bugfixes.

Alexandros Pourikas has created an Amiga website in Greek language at www.amiga.gr. Aside from Amiga news and a forum in local language, there is an interesting picture gallery to be found here.

Since the website is completely written in Greek, I don't understand a word, but the graphics alone are worth a visit :-). (ps) (ps) (Translation: (unk)

Fast 3D gfx chip by nVidia
Heise writes, among other:
California gfx chip manufacturer nVidia presented the 3D chip for PC graphic gards previously dubbed "NV10" in Berlin. The GeForce 256 is the first graphic chip for consumer PCs that processes and displays 3D data mainly on its own.
With 23 million transistors, the GeForce 256 is more than twice as complex as a Pentium-III CPU (9 million transistors). Since it does geometry transformations and lighting calculations much faster than the PC CPU, it can create 3D objects and 3D virtual realities with much more detail and fluid moves. Thus, PC games can make use of curved and organic structures like in movies a la "Toy Story" and "A Bug's Life". (Full article - German - at the title link).
Here is another interesting link on the subject. (ps) (Translation: (unk)

Seybold Conference: First Macs with PowerPC G4 CPU
MacGadget, among others, writes:
As expected, Apple CEO Steve Jobs presented a new generation of Macintosh computers in his keynote to the Seybold Conference in San Francisco, which are powered for the first time by the top-performing PowerPC G4 CPU. Apple called the new Macs "supercomputers", offering significantly more speed than the current Power Macintosh G3 product line. Apple starts shipping the first 400 MHz G4 system today. Versions with 450 and 500 MHz are bound to follow in the next two weeks.
The main performance specs are a 2x AGP bus, integrated AirPort technology, an Ultra 66 ATA system and an accelerated PCI bus. Jobs spend special attention on the AltiVec technology. This especially speeds up operations heavy on numerical calculations, like graphic applications. A special AltiVec-optimised expansion to Photoshop is included with every G4 Mac. The new systems will cost between 1599 and 3499 USD. A PowerPC G4 with 500 MHz is said to be much faster than a Pentium III with 600 MHz. The Power Macintosh G4 will be shipped in the same casing as the current G3 line, but not in blue-white but silver-white.
The new configurations in overview:
Power Mac G4/400, 64 MB memory, 10 GByte-HD, 32speed CD-ROM; 1599 $
Power Mac G4/450, 128 MB memory, 20 GByte-HD, DVD-ROM; 2499 $
Power Mac G4/500, 256 MB memory, 27 GByte-HD, DVD-RAM; 3499 $
