I was looking over my Apple Order Status when I noticed that the iSight order was cancelled and replaced with a new one. It said

Item: ISIGHT-USA
Part #: M8817LL/A

Now it says

Item: ISIGHT MLTPK-USA
Part #: M9330LL/A

Anyone else notice this?

Sounds like a multipack. Maybe they're giving you 2 for the price of 1 now?

I'm pretty that is some sort of multipack. I'm still expecting another year or so out of my iSight being the "newest" thing for webcams.

Probably Apple just shifting internal inventory.

sigh...

I just purchased the isight this past weekend...but I have not opended it as yet... wondering if there any word on isight updates happening towards the end of the month?

Retailer won't take it back once opened... so I might just return it and buy it again after once i know for sure what will be happening to isight... ie just a firmware update or a new bundle or hardware enchancement... anybody heard any word ot idea?

cheers!

also, does anyone have experience using an isight with a 500mhz G3? The box says minimum 600mhz G3, but I want to get one for my dad who has an iMac 500mhz G3...

Yes & no..

Yes: But you need to pay for a hack/patch, available here http://www.ecamm.com/mac/ichatusbcam/
No: Because performance will be absolutely crippled. Apple don't enforce a 600mhz G3 limit for the fun of it. iChat (And other VC apps) really need a 600mhz G3+ cpu to work well. It will be dog slow and beach balls on an all too frequent basis with anything less.
The worst thing about having a failing memory is..... no, it's gone.

I like the two for one deal or perhaps 2 for $179 (or some really good deal to make people get all charged up over it)

In iChat, right-click on the person's username and select "Invite to One-Way Video Chat."
