Yes, it's always fun to see a "real" press mention. :) I recall several times when Retrogames was mentioned in various press when I was still a primary staffer, and it felt great. Of course, you actually (and deservedly) had your nick mentioned too! :)

Yes, I will indeed be making a choice, probably in August or September I suspect. Toshiba is expected to unveil their 1st PPC in July, and rumors say Casio will show something new next month! Considering Nec has a pin compatible CPU at 200Mhz with some cool power features, I bet/hope Casio goes to that.
Can you tell I'm really getting into PPC's ? :P I'm even considering doing a new site for them once I finally get one. I'm thinking a game/emulation site for PPC's with other related news as well. I really think emulation on PPCs will EXPLODE as soon as new models start getting faster CPUs and better controls etc. Once the 400Mhz chips start showing up, we're talking some seriously cool emulation possibilities. Not to mention native games for the platform, which are already looking pretty nice - so nice that I may not even bu a Gameboy Advance.
No matter what, I'm sooo eager to try MAME on a PPC! So please, keep up your good work!
