No, this will be the beginning of the insanity. Remember when Kormac was vaguely correct about a product release?

I'm still waiting for that PDA that plugs into a tablet PC.

I agree and FINALLY can the 'G5 soon' folks PLEASE take a pill! My gut tells me they wont but think how nice it would be around here if they did.

Ouch! time was dead on and I guess all of the people who slammed him are having a nice helping of humble pie. This board turns into personal attacks way too easily. I hope people will be a lot more open minded in the future.

It's funny how you guys can lick the feces off Kormac's ass, but bust on a guy who doesn't claim to know too many details, rather just the release date.

Oh, and he was right!

Firstly, time, welcome to the boards. And what a welcome!

Now you're going to have to deal with folks pestering you about upcoming hardware releases.

Best of luck!

To All:

I just got up and saw that Apple has released new product. I take this time to thank all those who stood by me and backed me up.

The head guy is never wrong.

Thanks Again,

By 'head guy' do you mean Steve Job's himself?!

HA HA HA HA, hey you self-proclaimed AI thought-police, I guess sometimes people ARE honest.

psantora, corvette, murbot, EmAn, and M5884 should post some serious apologies to Time for their harshness and personal attacks.

Kudos to Michael Gray for his classy apology. A lesson for all.

I took this from post 13.

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.

Again sorry, but I did give a lot of hints in that post.

Thanks again,
time

Man, I just read this thread this morning.

I'm stunned at how ignorant many of you were here. If I'd read the initial post on Saturday, I wouldn't have believed it either... but I sure as heck wouldn't call the guy every bad name in the book!

Now, turns out he was right and 99% of you owe this guy an apology.

And I thought the terrorists showed us that we all needed to be nicer to each other.

I would also like to point out that when I decimate a supposed insider my track record is 100%.

Kormac = bullshit. 0.000 batting average. CRAP! Steaming piles of it.

Dorsal = probably true, but with a few degrees of seperation between his access and final product.

Time = wait and see. Turns out he was right. What he proposed was verifiable in short order: no "maybe for next time" nonsense. What he stated he was right and limited to what he knew. He didn't try to build it up. So the reasonable thing to do was wait to see if it panned out. It did.

However, I'd hardly blame those who suspected him. They've grown weary from months of Kormac's bullshit. Time didn't deserve to get yelled at, but after month's of ripe stinking dung, it remains amazing to me that some of you will rush to the defence of Kormac yet call for the head of any other potential source of rumor (real or invented). So the reasonable thing to do is blame Kormac for creating this atmosphere of suspicion and doubt. Death to the Korean infidel!

Hope springs eternal, I suppose.

But G5 hype aside (again -- don't expect it any time soon), the dual 1ghz model looks pretty sweet to me.

Hey Time (or is that Tim?) can you give us a hint about where you work?

I'm guessing you are based somewhere like Mac Mart? or maybe you work at the printers where the boxes are made?

Give us a clue!

PS don't hesitate to let us know when the G5 is coming...

I wouldn't give time too much credit even though he was right.

El presidente of AmbrosiaSW moki? Or am I mistaken. Anways, I am trying to keep my finger away from that button. But I don't think I will keep it away from the iMac purchace. Even though the Dual 1Ghz running on OSX sounds intoxicating. Imagine running Photohsop....

Not too often does a person with a post count under 5 show up here and post "confirmed" info about future hardware, and turn out to be right. I'll admit I doubted Time for that reason. Good job, Time, and thanks for the scoop.

I think it's obvious time works for Apple computer. And that the "Head Guy" is Steve Jobs. Or maybe he works for a Apple Store and the "head guy" is the manager. It is one or the other. But he works for apple for sure.

Also I would like to apologize again to time, I feel like shit for being so mean to him. He's a real find time is.

Time:

If you are Steve Jobs, or have his ear (as you apparently have either immunity from being fired or have a job offer somewhere else in hand), could you please release the iTablet soon?

It would really make my life more simple.

Thanks.

We don't work at an Apple Store, our store is much better than one of those. We are one of the oldest Apple retailers, and when the Apple stores can't support their customers they point them to us. Our store also does repairs, which the Apple stores can't do. Unfortunately our Apple rep also handles the local Apple stores, and so we get most of our info at the same time they do, but i'd have to say Apple reps don't get told much, because it's rare that he tells us anything we don't already know. This was a welcome exception, so Time decided to let you all in on it. We both have contacts that work at the Apple stores, (that we trained personally, but couldn't get a job with us), and he's passed on some things he heard, but everything turned out to be BS. The main reason I mention this is so that you don't get deceived by someone who says they work at an Apple store and they know some specs, or someone who says they heard something when they were walking through an Apple store. Those guys guess just as much as everyone here. Anyways, if we find out any info in the future we'll be happy to share whatever we can.

Wouldn't it be funny if time was really Steve Jobs. I mean a lot of us were very rude to him yesterday. Think about it...It's not impossible. Although I guess Steve would be to busy for the likes of us. Whoever time is he works for apple and not an apple store. The Head Guy must be Steve Jobs. Maybe time is...

Tell Steve I want a faster PowerBook in march.

OK, I was wrong... We should not have closed this thread and time was not taking a shot in th dark (although, this is still possible ). But notice, that was ALL I said.. I never said time was wrong... I was just pointing out that there were so many of these "oh its coming 'next week'" threads that I was really getting sick of them... So time, my apologies, even though I really wasn't mad @ you just people like you in general... Besides, who can blame me for being skeptical? Isn't it better to be surprised then dissapointed?

Time, any idea on when the "infected mushroom" G4's will be in quantity in stores?

To Time and DansG3, thanks for the info!

As you work towards the 'end' of the line your information is obviously gonna be much more reliable as in shipping dates and final specs etc.

The information I tend to get is much earlier in the chain as in test boxes etc. But even then the actual specs tend to be shrouded in secrecy - and subject to change!

I take it you're not very old.

If you're smart, you'll stop right here with clues as to your identity. And make sure you're surfing the net anonymously, too. safeweb or other.

Worker Bee didn't listen to me, either. I kept telling him to quit spreading the truth as if it were rumor.

If you know something more than the rest, just grin to yourself.

ESPECIALLY if you work for Apple something.
