It was a commercial success. Only six weeks after the unveiling, Apple received more than 140,000 advance orders. The iBook and iMac dramatically helped Apple climb back to fame, doubling Apple's market share at the time to 11.2%. For the fiscal year 1999, Apple reported revenues of $6.1 billion.

Play your favorite Youtube movies

Unfortunately, the flash-based Youtube movies ask too much of the iBook hardware. My workaround: Save Youtube movies with a little help from keepvid.com in mp4 format. The video player VLC (OSX 10.3.9 at least for the current version), is able to play these files even on a 300MHZ Blueberry or Tangerine iBook in its original resolution. The option to skip frames should be activated.

 

If you own a 366MHZ or 466MHZ Clamshell with 8MB graphics try Youtube on OS9. With the Mozilla-based Wamcom browser and the appropriate Flash Player plug-in (you have to place it manually in the wamcom plug-in directory) you are able to play them directly - the design and performance is still not perfect.
