(light update today due to heavy snowstorm.)
Apple/products related News/Op-Ed/Rumors/PR:
I've updated the Mac 802.11ac Adapters page report on the Asus AC68 802.11ac PCIe card to note the Mac Pro was running 10.9.1 which has native support for the card.

BTW: Several sites on Feb 12th ran stories about the original Lisa mouse in the recovered Steve Jobs' time capsule which I didn't post in the news since there were similar stories on the Jobs' Time Capsule in the September 20th 2013 news - i.e. After 30 years, 'Steve Jobs Time Capsule' recovered with my note (Jobs donated Lisa mouse).
