I doubt it. That TimeCanada thing was a disaster. By the time the keynote was over, most people were talking about how lame it was cause they had already seen everything.

Everyone knows, man, MacRumors' forums have been shafted from the traffic, the screenshots have been emailed to about any mac user with an interest in the subject...

it would suck if it was not correct...

Store is down for maintenance right now. Wow.

So, does anybody want to buy a kidney? Or maybe my left arm? I just hope the price isn't to high, there are only so many body parts I can sell to buy one of these.

Are you suggesting this was a planned strategy on the part of Jobs?
Kind of far fetched but then again, Jobs' knows that AI folks are hanging on every rumour leading up to a major release. Perhaps revealing phoney specs if only for a few minutes would be one way he could get his kicks!

Ok. I am amazed. If in the SOOOO unlikely event that the server was hacked, Apple is simply screwed by the amount of attention this is getting. But, I can only believe it is true. Now only to hope on the price so that I may get one in the near future. Oh my goodness! The specs look GREAT!

Guys, lets keep it cool. As I stated above, the font used for the G5 specs is larger than the font used for every other product description.

This may seem minor, but as many of you know, pro web designers use templates to create the graphics so they are certain that everything is the same.


Before the site went down, I clicked on the iBook, Powerbook, iMac, and eMac, and all of them had the same smaller font, than was used to describe the "G5".

I'm just trying to keep everyone in check so we don't all get pissed on Monday.

The specs seem too unreal to be true. But, either way, I'll bite.

Now, what if the "leak" is not a mistake and these specs will officially debut on Apple's website tomorrow morning? My reasoning is that, although we all desperately need and wish for faaaaaaaaaster Macs, the real thing that drives us is MacOS X. Maybe Steve wanted to get the huge G5/970 surprise out of the way and focus on Panther and its alleged killer new features. Maybe a long shot, but still probable, albeit contrary to Apple's recent history of events.

AAPL should skyrocket when if ever these specs get *CONFIRMED* and we'll all live happily ever after.

Odd how the site is down but the link to the picture still works. I hit refresh its not in my cache.

Yeah, I'd imagine someone just used the wrong file name, and bam! Either that or Akamai messed up in some way. Regardless.... "yikes"

I would not want to be working at Apple tomorrow.

They could very well be revamping their graphics to use a slightly bigger font. Relax, let us enjoy this.

I just called 1-800-MY-APPLE
I told the Salesperson I wanted to buy a new Powermac with the Stated specs and she said and I quote "You can't buy that right now as Apple does not comment on or let you buy future products". It is CONFIRMED.

I feel bad for those that put so much work into the products. So close, yet so far.

If the hacker were a Mac hater, why would he post high end and believable specs? I don't think a hack job would be this subtle and elegant.
Attention Internet Users!

"it's" contraction of "it is"
"its" possessive form of the pronoun "it".

It's shameful how grammar on the Internet is losing its accuracy.

Having had a few minutes to consider it....

Unbelievable upgrade. After a megahertz drought that threatened to kill the Mac once and for all...the Heavens open.

Oh how lush and welcoming this new land will be.

I can *confirm* that they are redesigning the store just a little.

this is the link for the image:http://a248.e.akamai.net/7/248/2041/...t1powermac.gif

now, copy that into your browser and muck around with the numbers at the end.





See the difference.

[edit: oh damn, the changed image is already gone. i've got it saved on my hard drive if someone can host it for me.]

If it were much more, we'd all be calling bogus, but this? This is just enough to make us all have geekgasms, and then look like hosers on Monday... as well as making Apple look beleaguered, not to mention what it'd do to the stock...

That could only be true if the "fake" specs were an effort to lower expectations pre-event, and then Jobs could turn everyone's anger/disappointment around with the real (Better than expected) specs.

The fact that these specs are mind-blowing, in my mind, means they're credible. Jobs would NEVER release fake specs to whet the crowd's appetite, and then crush everyone's hopes later.

I mean, suppose on Monday it turns out to be 1.4, 1.6, dual 1.6. 30 minutes ago, we all would have cheered mightily at those numbers. After the leak, we'd all be a little bummed.

The specs are real.
