No Powermacs at MWNY?

post #1 of 225
Thread Starter 
<a href="http://www.thinksecret.com/news/mwny02apple.html" target="_blank">ThinkSecret</a> is suggesting that there will be no towers at NY.

I mentioned a while back that I thought pro hardware wasn't right for NY based on earlier comments by Steve that expos would not bring the raft of product announcements like before.

August makes a lot of sense - promo ends and Jaguar ships. Developers can show off their QZX support at Seybold. Apple can make a big splash by putting all the pieces out there at one time.

Their suggestion is a 17" iMac. I like that, but it presents a big problem for the inventory in the channel. No word on a device, though I think that has to be in the works soon if not next week.

While reading the predictions, I kept wondering why some points (like no G4 speed bump) are listed as - to paraphrase - "100% certain it might happen."

It certainly makes sense. After all, MacWorld Expo is the biggest almost-free publicity Apple gets, and the "Switch" push by Apple is at aimed at the broader iAudience than the narrower PowerAudience. I betcha out side of the Expo hype and Apple ads, most people don't even think of Apple. Might as well broadcast the widest appeal as possible when everyone is looking.

I just wish iBooks were as well-treated as Steve's precious iMac baby.

Now I'm sure Jobs will announce a G5 and an iPDA...just to spite the rumormongers.

I'm flabbergasted. Even if Apple cannot ship its next Power Macs until mid-August, they must announce something at MWNY.

While (speedbumped?) 17" iMacs would be nice, price cuts on current models are far more necessary.

If they annouonce anything, then sales effectively drop to zero (Steve probably calls it the Osbourne Principle). Not to mention that (if this report is true) it detracts from the iMac announcement.

they are going to announce something. 10.2

its way bigger to the long view of apple then a 40% speed bump that will leave them with cargo ships filled with almost unsellable quicksilver g4s.

then 17 is 1800$ model only?

that would allow for both scenarios.
post #12 of 225
Man, the more I think about this, the more it makes sense. I am inclined to agree with Think Secret.

Free Publicity + Switch Campaign + iMac slow sales = No new Powermacs at MWNY.

I'm of two minds:

1) The biggest mistake since the Cube (a 17" iMac will be expensive, with the same problems as the curent 15" iMac w/r/t expansion, design, etc.). "The Day Apple Stood Still." A tough economy and Apple makes more EXPENSIVE products????

2) A big push behind the biggest marketshare steal since the Pepsi Challenge. Suddenly, it's not just a Coke (Windows) world.

Only 8 days to go!

[BIGTIME RANT]

But how good is it for publicity when the reports from MW that the press give out note that "most show-goers were visibly disappointed/angry to see no new Powermac hardware"?

Many people have asked me what I know beyond what I post. Not much. I have sources that hint things at me, and thats about it. SO I know some things in the channel but not what is coming at MWNY itself.

But I will say this: If there is no new Powermac hardware I will be *VERY* upset, to say the least. I was upset LAST summer to see a minor update. NO update this MWNY would make me psychotic.

It would be the dumbest thing ever. As observed above, the MW expos are the biggest near-free exposure Apple gets...why WASTE it focusing on Jaguar, which everyone, ThinkSecret included, is a *free* upgrade. Its not going to generate much revenue by itself. Some people may buy new Macs because of it, but most people who would buy a Mac either a) don't care about Jaguar vs 10.1 or b) will just get the upgrade when it comes out.

Apple's FREE exposure at MW would be well-spent on the iMac and the Powermac...since many/majority of the attendees are going to want to get OUR hands on the NEW machines and see/use them. Why would they release a NEW case design, NEW mobo, NEW Powermac next month at a special event with no big show attached to it? Xserve was fine for that...but the PowerMac audience is big enough that we're going to want to make it a big deal.

Beyond that, the Switch campaign is aimed at the entire world, not just the iWorld. Aaron Adams is a LAN admin...they obviously are trying to win over pros too....why not show pro hardware off? Having another Macworld with no new Pro hardware would only enhance the image some people have of Apple as a "toy company" with lots of cute machines (iMacs, etc) but nothing with a lot of muscle.

Steve better at least say WHEN he'll introduce a new Powermac and give a teaser (a la Xserve), or there will be hell to pay.

If he didn't, this would make THREE (3) consecutive Macworlds that no mention of Pro Towers was made. Why would Pros attend if not to see the machines they covet? Does Apple honestly expect Mr I-Don't-care-if-its-an-Apple-or-a-Dell-as-long-as-it-works to come to the expo? Fat chance. They need pros to go, and if they stop introing pro hardware at Macworlds, then I'll have to stop going. Why spend money registering and flying to it just to see and play with the "toys?" I can go to the Apple Store down the road and do that.

If Steve announces the machines that I've been predicting thusfar, you'll hear me in the audience yelling "HELL F***ING YEAH!" the loudest, but if there's no Powermac mention, you may DAMN well hear me BOOING Steve off the stage at the end (there, I said it.)

Nick de Plume is awfully upset about not being allowed to get a press pass for MWNY. So, what does he do? He posts a rumor article - this time with quite a negative position, and asks Apple to be allowed because the rumor sites can cause negative press for Apple too.

Just a theory.

As much as I hate to admit it, I think that ThinkSecret is right(as usual). We've seen this pattern of production introduction before. Just earlier this year when Apple introduced the new iMac at MWSF, it shunned the Powermac to a silent roll-out a short time later. I'm sure that this silent introduction was done in part to increase the focus on the new iMac and in part because of the Powermac's meager clockspeed. Don't get me wrong, the dual gig is a nice machine, but that clockspeed sure won't entice the clueless PC users out there.
Anyways, MWNY is supposed to be a consumer show, so why shouldn't they promote a new iMac? That 15-inch monitor sucks anyways.
post #17 of 225
This announcement is absolutely bombshell. Of the rumor sites, Think Secret has always been the most accurate. Historically, if they say something, it's true. And even despite that they never, ever, say stuff like "we're absolutely certain" and "very confident" like they did in this article. Overall, I'd bet pretty much anything that what they've said is true.
post #18 of 225
Sounds reasonable to me. IMO, a powermac delay can only mean that something great is in the works (or more negatively, that Apple can't sell the inventory they have, so they can't release any new product...ouch!).

A 17" iMac would make for an awesome show, IMO. I've been clamoring for such an iMac since forever, and finally Apple would have a great consumer desktop offering. As long as the price is right, a 17" iMac would fly off the shelves IMO.

So if no Powermacs at MWNY, then chances are better for 1.5 GHz G4s.

Well, sales have effectively dropped to zero. I do think putting a 17" iMac at the $1799 point (I'd like to see a cinema oriented display rather than the usual 4:3, though) and slashing prices of the existing models works best. No speed bump on the line - they can't creep up into Powermac range until Jan. Put the low-end iMac at $1099 or so, and I think things will move again.

In terms of announcements, they're better off with a device tossed in there if one is ready, and talk of services and iApps to bring the consumer crowd over.

Original post by AKI, silly rebuttal by y/t:

But how good is it for publicity when the reports from MW that the press give out note that "most show-goers were visibly disappointed/angry to see no new Powermac hardware"?

They won't say that, because it won't happen. The press will report what Apple PR tells them to.

Many people have asked me what I know beyond what I post. Not much. I have sources that hint things at me, and thats about it. SO I know some things in the channel but not what is coming at MWNY itself.

But I will say this: If there is no new Powermac hardware I will be *VERY* upset, to say the least. I was upset LAST summer to see a minor update. NO update this MWNY would make me psychotic.

Why? If you know it's in the pipeline, and you know it will be out soon enough, then why does it bother you so much? PC Spec Envy? What is the problem, dude?

It would be the dumbest thing ever. As observed above, the MW expos are the biggest near-free exposure Apple gets...why WASTE it focusing on Jaguar, which everyone, ThinkSecret included, is a *free* upgrade. Its not going to generate much revenue by itself. Some people may buy new Macs because of it, but most people who would buy a Mac either a) don't care about Jaguar vs 10.1 or b) will just get the upgrade when it comes out.

Jaguar is BIG because it will convince even more fencesitters to Switch, because it's the baddest, coolest OS out there that "Just Works" (TM). Just because Jaguar generates no revenue by itself, doesn't mean it doesn't generate revenue.

Apple's FREE exposure at MW would be well-spent on the iMac and the Powermac...since many/majority of the attendees are going to want to get OUR hands on the NEW machines and see/use them. Why would they release a NEW case design, NEW mobo, NEW Powermac next month at a special event with no big show attached to it? Xserve was fine for that...but the PowerMac audience is big enough that we're going to want to make it a big deal.

Just because you are going to the Expo to play with Powemacs doesn't mean that everyone is.

Beyond that, the Switch campaign is aimed at the entire world, not just the iWorld. Aaron Adams is a LAN admin...they obviously are trying to win over pros too....why not show pro hardware off? Having another Macworld with no new Pro hardware would only enhance the image some people have of Apple as a "toy company" with lots of cute machines (iMacs, etc) but nothing with a lot of muscle.

It most definitely IS NOT directed at pros. Adams maybe a LAN admin, but he uses his Mac at HOME. He is still a Winodws Admin at work.

Steve better at least say WHEN he'll introduce a new Powermac and give a teaser (a la Xserve), or there will be hell to pay.

Probably will, because he's such a tease.....remember the 'empty quadrant' tease? He never really filled it, but the boards lit up for weeks speculating about it.

If he didn't, this would make THREE (3) consecutive Macworlds that no mention of Pro Towers was made. Why would Pros attend if not to see the machines they covet? Does Apple honestly expect Mr I-Don't-care-if-its-an-Apple-or-a-Dell-as-long-as-it-works to come to the expo? Fat chance. They need pros to go, and if they stop introing pro hardware at Macworlds, then I'll have to stop going. Why spend money registering and flying to it just to see and play with the "toys?" I can go to the Apple Store down the road and do that.

So be it. Like I said earlier, people go to Expose for a variety of reasons.

If Steve announces the machines that I've been predicting thusfar, you'll hear me in the audience yelling "HELL F***ING YEAH!" the loudest, but if there's no Powermac mention, you may DAMN well hear me BOOING Steve off the stage at the end (there, I said it.)

You won't boo. The RDF is strong up close, my friend.

I hope a steely eyed audience, one completely impervious to the charms of the RDF, shows up to greet Stevie at this upcoming MacWorld. Anything short of truly competetive prices on significantly enhanced machines deserves to get booed off the stage -- loudly, and embarassingly so. And by improvement I mean real improvement: powermacs that justify their cost with brute number crunching power, DDR, faster firewire for all models, properly priced (pre-DVI level) powerbooks, a G4 consumer 'book' of some kind, at least 1Ghz on ALL (including bottom line iMac) desktops, CHEAP iMacG3's, etc etc...

Steve has enjoyed far too much acclaim for far too little hardware offering in recent months. He needs to be taken down a few notches.

Bulls**t!

Nick is just pissed off that Apple is treating him like a nobody and is trying to throw as much dirt at Apple as he possibly can to show that he has some weight in the community.

I think it's pretty obvious that the PowerMac line is due for an update. iMac sales are slow and will most likely receive an incentive to improve sales before they're updated.

Don't buy it at all!

I really hope this is the case.

There is a logical inconsistency between his reasons for no powermacs, and new iMac announcements. I hope he has fallen for some SJ Black-Op Disinformation....

Guys. Relax. This COULD be just more disinformation from Apple to the rumor sites. It's happened before. This could be Steve Jobs' "f uck you" to Think Secret just before he goes on stage and announces some kick ass products (one of which could be a PowerMac G4 that will ship in three weeks).

I'll be in the audience at the keynote waiting patiently. Either way, it'll be a fun time.

You guys do realize that Apple is purposfuly planting these "no new PowerMac rumors" to throw us off.

There most definenlty will be new PowerMacs at MWNY.

Promotions? Deception. Apple is just trying to make us think it's safe to buy old PowerMacs.

Remember iWalk? This is the same sort of thing. Apple is toying with us again.

No, this is not Apple disinformation. If it were, Apple would have to prematurely end the new Crystal clear savings. Has Apple ever done that before?

Seybold or MacWorld Paris might be better suited for a Power introduction.

I think Steve could not announce new PowerMacs and leave the stage alive, if he had something up his sleeve that would soothe the attendees's murderous natures. So we should be wondering:

"if no PowerMac, then what?"
post #33 of 225
Cnet is reporting the same thing, though they quote Nick at one point - makes me wonder which one is the real source.

I wasn't planning on a pMac until August/September anyway - so it's no skin off mine - but I think this will make for a dismal showing in NY. It's not as if those of us who'd hold off until after MW won't hold off even longer now... it's idiocy.

We can tell ourselves that something good is around the corner, but this actually doesn't bode well for that to be true - they have 2 audiences a year this size. Smells like a more modest than anticipated update in August - regardless of what's being reported. You can spin MW as a pro-consumer show, but showing high-end pro hardware to consumers isn't to get them to buy (well, some of them) - its a confidence game... it's purely a credibility booster, sliding them into the low-end model with a bit more ease and deflecting eyes and thoughts from the pricetag in the shadow of what the "pros" use.

Sad sad. Hoping for the best...

EDIT
You know, maybe it's not idiocy. I said it myself - we'll wait even longer. They know they have us, and we have no other options (I'd go back to Linuz before I went back to NT). Therein lies the problem. Perhaps we're angry with ourselves for backing a horse that doesn't run when we snap our fingers.

You know, I agree that DePlume puts out some decent articles and product profiles (a la Jaguar series of late), but since WHEN is ThinkSecret this Holy Grail of inside information?? It's like someone who has held himself above Ryan Meader (cuz that's really hard to do) suddenly posts a rather severe set of predictions and everyone is like

"OH MY GOD...if NICK says it's true, it's GOT to be right. Fvck Apple, let's boo Steve off the stage maaan."

Wake up homey-G's. Whether this is Nick DePlume being pissed about a press pass, or Apple feeding him BS or something else - THE GUY KNOWS SQUAT. Just like RAILhead, just like Architosh, Geek.com and all the rest. They all think they have these amazing sources and none of them do. It is in their interest to post all these borderline sensationalist predictions - how else are they going to get traffic? And don't tell me there's consequences for that; there is none. Will you guys suddenly stop reading ThinkSecret if he turns out to be totally wrong?

No. You'll forget all about it after a few [weeks] and then come his MWSF predictions this crap will start all over again - in one direction or another.

I would be totally [BAFFLED] if Apple didn't significantly update the Power Mac line sometime during the next 60 days. Whether the announcement is at MWNY and the release in August, or some other combination I have no idea...but chances are very good they're going to update the machines...period.

Just chill out and let's see what happens OK? God...people get so friggin worked up over nothing in this forum it's beyond belief.

Guys, chill. This is how it is, there is nothing we can do about it. We are a small percentage of the Apple buying public. Apple doesn't work their days around trying to fool the people on AppleInsider.

3 weeks to wait for a cool unveiling of the Power Mac at a special event is worth waiting for.

Nick dePlume is a moron.

I would be more likely to believe him if he wouldn't have said: "How are we so certain that MacWorld won't bring new towers? Use common sense! Just look at the Apple promotion..."

If he would have just said: a really good source told me, I may have been more likely to believe him... but having said what he did, made his article just another opinion, and we have enough of those here at AI
