Click of Death, and then my drive works again? What gives?

It was failing, but now it's not? Wednesday morning, I woke up to my Powerbook stalling. I got the beachball of doom when I tried to log in from sleep and it lasted 20 minutes, so I powered off and rebooted. On reboot, it took 30 minutes plus to load to the desktop, and my desktop icons didn't appear. I held the book to my ear and heard it -- yes, the "click of death." [more inside]

Obsessive saving of documents isn't cutting it.

My year-old Powerbook G4 has acquired the habit of suddenly shutting off when it thinks it has no more power, which usually happens when the menubar item says the battery is around 30% full. Do I need a new battery? Or can I massage it into the proper sleeping/hibernating behavior somehow?

Is my PowerBook only a paperweight now?

About 4 months ago, my beloved PowerBook got in the way of a cup of coffee. The geniuses at the Apple Store said that the hard drive was completely fried, that the computer has become a paperweight and none of the information can possibly be retrieved. They said if anyone could retreive the information, which was doubtful, it wasn't them and that it would probably cost me a thousand dollars or more. (More information...) [more inside]

If a digital camera says it can handle USB 2.0, does that mean it won't work in a USB 1.0 port?

If a digital camera says it can handle USB 2.0, does that mean it won't work in a USB 1.0 port? I'm in the market for a digital camera, and have been looking at the Canon PowerShot series, namely the A620, SD450, and SD600. All of these have USB 2.0 listed as the interface. However, my 800mhz G4 Powerbook has USB 1.0. Does this mean those cameras won't play nice with my laptop?

I'm looking to buy a new MacBook this summer and am hoping to sell my current 15", 1.3 GHz Powerbook (1.5GB RAM) to help cover some of the cost. How do I go about determining a reasonable price to ask for for my Powerbook? Are there any recommended routes by which I can sell my Powerbook whilst minimizing the risk of being ripped off?
