MACWORLD Expo: From The Floor - Eyes On Stealth Serial Port
by Kyle D'Addario
GeeThree.com is demonstrating a product called Stealth Serial Port. For those with Blue and White G3s, or an iMac, Stealth Serial Port is an excellent product.

The Stealth card itself plugs into your computer's internal modem port, turning the modem plug into a serial port. The Stealth Serial Port actually uses serial port technology already built into the G3 and iMac.

GeeThree.com representatives claim that there is flawless compatibility with any serial product, including printers, modems, and most importantly for many users, the Palm Pilot.

Users must add an extension to their System Folder to enable the port, but after that there is no software manipulation needed.

With the still widely present need for serial connectivity, and the problems associated with many of the "converter" type products on the market, the Stealth Serial Port appears to be an elegant solution.

GeeThree.com representatives informed The Mac Observer that the version for the Blue and White G3 is currently shipping, and installation is as simple as installing an internal modem. The iMac version should be shipping before the holiday shopping season, and both products will retail for a suggested price of $49.95.
