ZIPS ON TRIPS
The Zip drive, the 100-megabyte superfloppy from Iomega (800 697-8833), has new traveling shoes. The 9-ounce Zip Unleashed battery pack is a rechargeable unit that promises to power a Zip drive for two to three hours. The power pack attaches to the Zip drive case with a plastic clip to form a convenient package. Also new from Iomega: a $99 SCSI adapter for notebooks. The adapter provides a faster link than a standard serial port and connects a Zip drive or a CD-ROM. Macintosh PowerBook owners need only an adapter cable to hook up.
