The first G3 was actually called the 3500 in Japan, and was codenamed
"Kanga". It is the one that was really like the 3400. The Wallstreet did
introduce the curve factors of the black PowerBook, which ended with the
Pismo, before the Titanium was introduced.

dangling pointer n.: [common] A reference that doesn't actually lead
anywhere (in C and some other languages, a pointer that doesn't actually
point at anything valid). Usually this happens because it formerly pointed
to something that has moved or disappeared. Used as jargon in a
generalization of its techspeak meaning; for example, a local phone number
for a person who has since moved to the other coast is a dangling pointer.
