Thanks so much for creating a wonderful resource for Apple's product line. I find it most useful.

Great app, but i still am using Windows 200 SP4, and i am still hoping for a update to bring Win versions inline with Mac OS X versions. Great app though.

excellent app, I use it on my OS X mac all the time, except it is currently down. I do have the iPod version on my 4th gen u2 ipod, and it works very wonderfully, even though it is not technically an app.

One suggestion: could you please kick in some calssic support and update the Mac OS 8 and 9 app? it's been stuck at 4.0.2 for quite a while, and I have a couple macs that run it (but dont run OS X).

Also, could you please make the classic version compatible with Mac OS 7 to 8.1? I run 7.6.1 on my Powerbook 1400, as it is instable with 8.6 (it caused the hard drive to crash, and kept spitting out random errors.) I love this app, but I have about 4 more macs I can run this on if you added OS 7-8.1. I also have several friends with macs running OS 7 as well. Heck, my old elimentary school (which I still keep in touch with), has a few hundred original bondi iMacs running the stock 8.1, and they really want to run this thing for reference (seriously.)

or, since it is free, perhaps you could make this thing open source, then I could code an OS 7-8.1 version?

thanks.

Great piece of software.
What about non-macintosh Apple's? Would it be possible to include info on the AppleII machines and related non-macintosh products? I ask because the last Apple's I ownde before my Powerbook where an AppleIIGS and an Apple dotmatrix printer (AppleWriter?).

Will you improve the smart categories feature? Right now, it can filter only one condition. That makes some PowerPC models appear when you filter to see models with an Intel chip (because it contains 'Intel 486' within the data).

Hi Ian,
