Well, I'm slightly stunned at the fact that *I'm* the one FoRKing these
bits, but here goes...


BaNG Rhapsody Demo

Michael Bradley and other MacInTouch readers noted some highlights of the
Sept. 24, 1997 public meeting of BANG (Bay Area NeXT Group) on the Apple
campus, where Peter Graffagnino, Ali Ozer, and other members of the
Rhapsody team gave a brief technical overview of Rhapsody DR1:

1."The Blue Box will not be in DR1
2.The DR1 Golden Master candidate is "in hand," they told us, although it
hasn't yet officially been certified as a GM candidate; release date should
be in a couple of weeks, with the Intel version available a couple of weeks
3.Sockets, it seems, has won out over streams for tcp/ip
4.No serial PPP in DR1 (use Ethernet instead)
5.No QuickTime in DR1"
