time! I am sick of people like you. Why do you post shit like this. Do you have no pride? I guess not. People like you make me sick. Sick to death.
There will be no PowerMac next week. It's the most obvious thing in the world. We will see new PowerMacs at seybold maybe G5s. I don't know this for sure but it makes since. And Steve Jobs isn't stupid.

If time is right I will apologize to him. I will. But I really do believe he has more shit in him than a hippopotamus and it mells worse too.

Y'know, people who pull this 'I can't tell you how I know' crappola are the worst kind of liars...they are lazy liars.

If you know because your friend works at Apple, they say your friend works at Apple. If you work for a reseller, wholesaler, ad agency, shipper, etc....just say it. It's a big, big world and you can give plenty of detail without giving away your identity.

Actually if you read his later posts he implied that he works for some sort of retailer. Not that I believe him since in the last month (let alone the last few years) I've heard at least 20 people say they know that the PM is coming on &lt;insert date here&gt; ... all wrong. I no longer believe anything anyone on any board says. I also have little faith in anything any rumor sites say. Honestly not sure why I even waste my time here ...

I just got home from work and I see that I have been kicked, slashed, abused, degraded, slandered etc.

First, when I posted this morning about the G4's being announced on Monday I was in a hurry because I had to be at work at 10:00.

Second, this is the first time I have posted on AppleInsider EVER. (this means on any of the forms)

I do not get my kicks on telling lies or trying to hype a product that I know nothing about. I was told by the head guy that G4's would be announced on Monday. I posted it. Not to build anyones hope, not to give false impressions, not to make me (time) look like I'm God or anything like that. I get my kicks and highs from playing sports....thats all.

Sorry if some of you do not believe me.

Third, this is to M5884... Sorry that you think that I am lying, but you do not know me and if you did I think you would find me a very interesting and honest person. Hope I did not ruin your day by posting this morning. Not all people are bad people, and not all people lie.


Fourth, to all: I know many come on the thread and say "sorry I can not tell you where I get my information from, where I work, if my friend works for apple, if he works for an Apple reseller, wholesaler or the big one...I can't tell you because I signed a disclosure etc." Some people who have these reasons, as some see them as excuses, can be true, as with me. I would love to just be able to come out and say "hey, I work for Apple, F*** that disclosure form, this is what I know" but I can't do that. Again...Sorry.

Fifth, to AirSluf: I apologize for being in such a hurry this morning. Took a nine mile run this morning got back a little late and was in a hurry so, my remotely journalistic grammer that you say I can't use was probably a little off this morning, as well as at work. You know, help a person, sell an iMac, customer support, sell a G4, answer phone calls, try to help a customer from getting upset because they are having trouble installing OS X....Next time I post, I will try to allow myself a little more time as I am doing now. Hope your weekend and day went well.

Sixth and last: To all: I was told by the head guy that on Monday the G4's would be announced, so if G4's were sold today and there was a price reduction for the older models on Monday that we would honor the price reduction. If I am wrong, I apologize to all and I will try never to post here again.

Thank You,
time

New G4's announced on Monday.

New G4's announced on Monday.</strong><hr></blockquote>

Hang around till Monday, so if you are right you can tell everyone to kiss your hariy ass (unless it's not hairy, then adjust your statement) People here have just heard from dozens of people that predict what you are predicting and written in the vaque non disclosing manner that you have. So as the boy that cried wolf, everyone here is starting to get a little ancy with predictions and not any info to back it up. Being that you are also new, it's very hard to go on fiath since so many have taken advantage of that faith.

You sound sincere so I won't critisize. But, I do hope you are wrong as that means maybe G5s are over the horizon.

I hope that I am wrong as well..about the G4's that is. I wish they are G5's as well.

I will always be around, I love to read the threads. I scan Think, Spy, Observer, Minute, MacNN, Macaddict and others. This was the first time I posted on any of them because i got good information from someone who orders the product. When G4's come out on Monday, it will just show that I was not lying. No need to bad mouth or slander. Again, I get my high from sports.

Thank You,
time

If I were a gambling man I'd wager that Apple won't announce an updated PM until Nvidia launches the Geforce4. Heck, I wouldn't be that surprised if Apple announced the updated PM at Nvidia's event.
post #58 of 120
Listen, if you're all so upset, don't argue with TIME. Arguing will only add the third-grade banter of "I know I'm right . . . but what are you?"

Simple solution: Boycott.

Wow, its amazing how people can get so harsh so quickly around here.

From everything I've read on this thread, Time seems like a good intentioned guy trying to pass along some info. Then some of you self-appointed thought police go after him like he's some sadistic troller trying to get his jollies by playing you for fools. I know every one has their panties in a twist because we're not getting the things we want right now, and there have been a lot of false leads. But that is no reason to question somone's integrity just because he/she doesn't have as many posts as you do. My post count was wiped out in the recent transition, so I am back to a low number. I have read these boards every day for a few years, but only contribute when I honestly think I have something useful to add. I certainly don't post replies with nothing but a quote and some goofy smiley face just to ratchet up my post count. Does my low post count mean my opinion is not as worthy as yours? Or that if I come by some information I should withhold it so as not to offend The "Comic Book Guy"s who seem to take it upon themselves to flame anyone who dares enter their domain? If you guys don't believe anything is coming Monday, fine. Others of us like the speculation. No one forced you to read this thread, so lighten up.

Part of what I enjoy so much about these boards is the rampant speculation, wild assertations, and occasional insider scoop. If you want 100% solid material, go read Apple's hot news section. Almost everyone who reads or posts to these forums do so because they love their Macs, and are curious what the future holds for us. So lets to try to give each other (and newbies) the benefit of the doubt, and slow down on the personal attacks. Monday will show if Time's info was accurate, but even if nothing appears it does not make him a liar. To me he sounds like a good guy who works at keeping our platform alive and well, and I hope he will continue to share any info he might stumble across.

On the other hand, the personality swing evidenced in posting style does nothing for the credibility factor.

I'm still galactically skeptical about the personal info time has, but Dorsals post and something an Apple Federal Sales rep said the other day has me hopeful for something by Seybold. He was relatively clueless as most sales reps should be, but didn't quite know when to stop talking either. No, he didn't have any PowerMac details and most of the stuff he shouldn't have said was his personal commentary on policy decisions and support issues (Scott H., he sides with you! ). But he did talk about the buzz about the campus and how many of the sales types were surprised that the PM's did not get a fresh face already based on cafe rumors. And that they (the sales types) group grope feeling was Seybold at the latest. Moki almost had me believing, but Dorsals post on top of the sales guy, well....</strong><hr></blockquote>

Well AirSluf if you really are in Monterey C.A. you have just identified your rep.

Time, don't take it so personally! Mac users are always touchy when there's new stuff coming out.

My boss said a funny thing the other day:

"so you reckon the new G4s will have G5s in em?"

Most semi-computer-literate people have got so used to saying G4 when they mean Powermac G4 that there could be a fair few warehouse bosses refering to the "new G4" without actually knowing what's really coming.

Is it just possible that Time could be completely honest and his Supervisor told him this based on something the Sup had just read on, say, a rumor site?
I think a lot of these rumors build this way Site A posts a rumor, person B reads the rumor and repeats it to person C as gospel, person C then sends and email/makes a post on rumor site A that they just got confirmation of said rumor.
(que "Circle of Life" from the Lion King soundtrack).

While I hope Time is right (I'd get a new tower at work afterall), I take his reports like all the others... with a grain of salt.

Doesn't keep me from getting excited, of course...

I just want to say (and I know that I may get beat around for saying this) good for time for defending him/herself. Anyone who frequents these board can tell you that they can be brutal and whether or not time is right, he/she's held his/her own.

We can't be right all of the time, but what would you rather... nobody share anything... if anybody thinks that they've really got something then they should post it. Now, it certainly then goes to the scrutinization process but hey, wouldn't you rather know then have someone who really does know and won't post?

Personally, I'd rather know.

It's also possible with all the crap floating around this board about inside info AI might be a microcosmic example of what's going on around the web in general. He/she might have got info from someone who assured him or her that it was genuine.

I've adopted a wait and see position.

Come the predicted day however the liars had better crawl back under their rock.

Hey time I'm sorry for my other post. It's just that we are sick of people coming around here and posting crap. Maybe you are telling the truth but we have no way of knowing it. Stick around till monday and if you are right I will post a topic publicly apologizing to you. If you are wrong I will regard you as a liar. Sorry, I realize that you may have been telling the truth even though the truth you told was not true. But if you are not 98% sure that what you have said is going to happen you shouldn't say it as a fact. I hope you understand my thinking here. And again I am sorry for what I said because I had no evidence you were lying.

Let this be a lesson.

I've been sick of all the arrogance on these boards recently. If somebody has something to say let them, they could be correct.

Hopefully this will bring a little bit of sanity back to AI and bring a few back down to earth.
