Wow, all these rumors are starting to suggest that perhaps something is brewing over at Apple!
What I find suspicious is that Apple is supposedly issuing C&D orders to only some select sites. It seems unlikely that this is an oversight, since a C&D was given to a site with a LINK to the AI story, but AI has not gotten any C&D warnings. Or maybe AI has gotten some warnings but they simply ignore them
In any event, I really think it would be a bad move on Apple's part to dilute the impact of Powermac G5s by releasing only single CPU models at first. It would be fine if there was a longer shipping delay for the dual CPU models, even up to 6 weeks or so, but there had better be at least some available for reviews and testing soon after announcement. The "G" moniker has a poor reputation for performance, so this "G5" needs to make a bitchin' first impression, meaning that it must trounce all competition.
Of course I'd rather dual CPUs across the entire Powermac line, but even if Apple only makes the high end dual, it will go a long way towards rehabilitating the "Powermac Gx" moniker's image.
That rumors are saying duals will show up "later on" is reassuring since the vague wording is consistent with Apple's habit of announcing all models at once, but shipping the high end up to 2 months later than the low end. Of course the wording is consistent with Apple waiting 2 years to add duals to lineup as well, but with all the impressive rumors recently, I like the more positive interpretation of the AI rumor.
Errrrrrrrm, Moki, I personally didn't care for Clinton's middle east policy, either, but my point was that lies about a blowjob aren't of the same caliber as lies that affect thousands to millions of people. That's all.
As for the WMD, maybe some still reside in Iraq, but the point is that Dubya and his handlers intentionally deceived the public by portraying Iraq as an imminent threat to our safety. UN inspections could have easily discovered any large scale WMD development or production, and Saddam was contained. The proof that inspections and containment work is all the WMD destroyed in the 90s (so many that now it's difficult to find them), and the fact that Saddamn hasn't started any wars of aggression since 91.
War should be a last resort, not a solution of choice. "War is the failure of policy", I forget who said that but it's dead on. Even more ironic is that the chimp who relished marching the flock of sheep into war was a deserter
in another war he was a proponent of, in spirit if not body. It's one thing to dodge the draft and organize protests in an effort to end a war one believes to be wrong, but quite another to support war while dodging the draft!
