Mac's have had this for a long time. Every wonder why Mac's are used by
graphics/advertising/Hollywood? Go to a ad agency and look at the people
using them. Play close attention to the chicks in the graphics dept. Mac's
simply quit working when ugly people sit in front of them. It's a little
known fact but Steve built it into the original 512K ROMS. What do you
think took all the extra memory from 128?
