    Imagine if you could (virtually) eliminate viruses, spyware, adware, parasites, etc. for ever?

    Would you pay for that?

    Imagine not having to spend hours trying to figure out what went wrong!

    There is a new parasite preventative (while it is not 100%, it is as close as you are going to get) that is coming on the market.

    In addition to preventing parasites, it makes your computer easier to use!

    This new product is available for under $500 USD.

    December 28, 2004 - With iPod-savvy Windows users clearly in its sights, Apple is expected to announce a bare bones, G4-based iMac without a display at Macworld Expo on January 11 that will retail for 499 USD, highly reliable sources have confirmed to Think Secret.

    The new Mac, code-named Q88, will be part of the iMac family and is expected to sport a PowerPC G4 processor at a speed around 1.25GHz. The new Mac is said to be incredibly small and will be housed in a flat enclosure with a height similar to the 1.73 inches of Apple's Xserve. Its size benefits will include the ability to stand the Mac on its side or put it below a display or monitor.

    Along with lowering costs by forgoing a display (Apple's entry-level eMac sells for 799 USD with a built-in 17-inch CRT display), the so-called "headless" iMac will allow Apple's target audience -- Windows users looking for a cheap, second PC -- to keep their current peripherals or decide on their own what to pair with the system, be it a high-priced LCD display or an inexpensive display. Sources expect the device to feature both DVI and VGA connectivity, although whether this will be provided through dual ports or through a single DVI port with a VGA adapter remains to be seen.

    The new Mac is expected to have a Combo drive only, but will possibly have an upgrade path to a SuperDrive at a higher price. It is unclear how big the hard drive capacity will be, although sources indicate it will be between 40GB and 80GB.

    Other expected features of the iMac include:

    * 256MB of RAM
    * USB 2.0
    * FireWire 400
    * 10/100 BASE-T Ethernet
    * 56K V.92 modem
    * AirPort Extreme support

    In terms of software, Apple will include a special iLife suite (minus iDVD) as well as AppleWorks, sources believe.
