CDs Earning Interest

Apple has announced that its AppleCD SC CD-ROM drive is back-ordered by as much as two months. The announcement follows a 25-percent price cut in February, when Apple lowered the price from $1,199 to $899. The company has also switched to CD-ROM discs for its distribution of system software and technical information to developers. Many Mac developers are reportedly upset over having an alpha version of the new System 7 but no way to run it for two months.
