  1. Well it’s about freaking time! Just kidding.
    I’m all for making slots happy especially when it comes to needing sleep.

    I supposed there are few psyched people out there. Are there cards available for that slot yet?

  2. Anyone out there hear a rumor when Sprint will release a PCS connection card for the ExpressCard/34 slot? I heard Verizon’s is already out.

    BTW – Kudos to Apple for including the PCS software with the 10.4.7 update. No installation required – unlike the other platform. I don’t even have to change the location anymore, just plug it in and it works!

  3. The Seritek SATA 2 card is awsome looking, especially with the Firmtek dual hot-swapable 2-drive external SATA drive bay. Very cool. Might have to get one of these setups for my MB Pro.
