The History of the Microwave Oven

The History of the Microwave Oven: "in 1947, the first commercial
microwave oven hit the market. These primitive units where gigantic and
enormously expensive, standing 5 1/2 feet tall, weighing over 750 pounds,
and costing about $5000 each. The magnetron tube had to be water-cooled,
so plumbing installations were also required."

Accidental Discoveries

NOVA Online | Cancer Warrior | Accidental Discoveries: "A seemingly insignificant finding by one researcher leads to a breakthrough
discovery by another; a physician methodically pursuing the answer to a medical
conundrum over many years suddenly has a 'Eureka' moment; a scientist who
chooses to study a contaminant in his culture rather than tossing it out
stumbles upon something entirely new. Here we examine seven of medical
history's most fortuitous couplings of great minds and great luck."

iMac_Disassembly Removing and upgrading the internal hard drive on an Intel iMac - not easy! Get it as big as you can from the factory . . .

Intel iMac: Easiest RAM install ever - The Unofficial Apple Weblog (TUAW)

Intel iMac: Easiest RAM install ever - The Unofficial Apple Weblog (TUAW): "If you ordered them with one DIMM installed, it will be installed in the OTHER DIMM slot, which is COMPLETELY buried inside the PC. i saw the instructions for upgrading THAT DIMM, and it's extremely involved. You have to take the entire chassis apart.So, if you ordered it with, say 1GB on one DIMM (as I did), your easy-to-use second slot will be empty, waiting for a second DIMM."

Moral of the Story?

Order your iMac with 1GB RAM preinstalled! It's worth the $90. . .
