[2:00 PM] More Details On Who Is Picking Up Mactell's FireWire Product Line

Inside sources have confirmed that the company picking up the FirePower product line from Mactell is named Rantic Labs. We expect that an official press release announcing the company is imminent. Details on the new company or their product lines has still not been confirmed. This includes whether or not the EvilEye Voodoo3 card will also be picked up by the new company.

Interesting to note is that a search on The Bottom Line, the Mac online retailer, includes 12 Rantic branded FirePower products. The Bottom Line is set up so that one can not link directly to a search, so if you are interested in checking it out, head to The Bottom Line and search for Rantic.

The Rantic Labs web site is very cool looking, though it gives no hint to the company's purpose.

The Mac Observer is following this story closely and will be bringing you more information when we get it.
