CONFIRMED: G5 iPods slated to ship Q4.

Also, blue dalmation mice and keyboards from Apple (wireless, of course)

OS XI is in beta.

The Apple handheld/tablet thing is only weeks away.

Mockups to follow...

\

How's that?

I'd have to agree...now that the G5 is out, and Panther isn't any secret, there isn't as much of that hype and fun speculation in the air. Appleinsider is still fun, but Future Hardware has become kind of dull.
post #6 of 38
Yeah...just wait 'till MWSF...you should get some "excitement" then.
post #7 of 38
Well wait til the G5 comes out and then everyone will be whining again about how it's slower than a P4 and bitchin' about "Where is the 980/G6, the G5 bites Apple worms", not enough storage, how come I can't get 16GB of memory per chip, 23" display is too small, etc,etc,etc.

i dont think he's bitchin about the mac itself but the fact that no one here knows anything and 99.99% of new posts are mere speculation.

As compared to what, only 98.9% being pure BS before?

Kickaha and Amorph couldn't moderate themselves out of a paper bag. Abdicate responsibility and succumb to idiocy. Two years of letting a member make personal attacks against others, then stepping aside when someone won't put up with it. Not only that but go ahead and shut down my posting priviledges but not the one making the attacks. Not even the common decency to abide by their warning (afer three days of absorbing personal attacks with no mods in sight), just shut my posting down and then say it might happen later if a certian line is crossed. Bullshit flag is flying, I won't abide by lying and coddling of liars who go off-site, create accounts differing in a single letter from my handle with the express purpose to decieve and then claim here that I did it. Everyone be warned, kim kap sol is a lying, deceitful poster.

Now I guess they should have banned me rather than just shut off posting priviledges, because kickaha and Amorph definitely aren't going to like being called to task when they thought they had it all ignored *cough* *cough* I mean under control. Just a couple o' tools.

Don't worry, as soon as my work resetting my posts is done I'll disappear forever.

The board is as good as the membership.

If you want it to be more interesting, contribute something interesting.

Moving to, um, well, we don't have an Armchair Quarterback forum, so...

Suggestions it is.

exactly and no one is even claiming to have insider info anymore...it's not anyones fault, apple is probably just cracking down on leaks

I don't know what it is really, it's just not exciting anymore but maybe it will change when a big expo is on the way

Do you guys know of any applications today that need more than a dual 2Ghz G5 w/ 8GB of RAM and twin 250Gb hard drives w/ dual 23" displays??!!! (Maybe if you're making a Pixar movie) But seriously, that system could conceivably satisfy most users until it literally stops working!

I'm willin' to try one out before I start bitchin', but I'm sure it is not going to do real time rendering for my needs, but it will beat the hell out of my dual gigger.

Now if they were only $1499...

Yes and obviously you didn't fall for my lame attempt and finding out just what that name was

Where's a workerbee when you need him?

I agree...we need something that no one is doing now. But Apple can wait until I buy my next Mac because I don't want to be left out!

I have only been following these boards for 2 years or so, but this does seem to be the slowest, most inactive rumor period I can remember. There was so much pent up geek lust for the G5 that once it was announced and the initial afterglow period subsided things have just simmered down. I still come and check out whats going on, but my desire to spend mass amounts of time going through every topic is waning.

What potential product announcement would re-engage that now defunct geek lust that I had?

A 15.4" G5 PowerBook(with built in iSight and always on highspeed internet connectivity[ie. Sprint Aircard type thingy with Apple elegance] backlit keyboard, fuel-cell power... or maybe a trash powered nuclear reactor like the professor put onto the Delorean in back to the future... Or maybe an apple wristwatch with airport (or somesort of high speed bluetooth) connectivity so that you could have iChat AV conversations anytime you are near your laptop and it would just stream wirelessly. I am just babbling, but where is the next supercool innovation. Or at least the next potential innovation that i can drool about.

I guess if all you are interested in is what is comming then things are pretty quiet at the moment. Understandably so given that Apple has announced so many new products this year. However, if you are interested in discussing what is already out there then the board is as lively as always. Sounds to me like you are a grass is greener on the other side person and will never be happy.

actually it's just the opposite, I'm usually happy with my shade of green. It's just that I always strive for excitement, and the boards aren't really hopping like they used to. I think it's a combination of apple cracking down, me growing up, and nostalgia. Sorry if I sounded like I was shitting on you guys, if you don't have insider info then you don't. I just wish somebody did

Anyone remember iCheese?

Or perhaps it could be Cheese Studio Pro. Or Cheese Cut(ter) Pro.

Or, zen-like simplicity in mind, just Cheese.

KISS.
post #32 of 38
Or how about iSex?

But maybe sex online has already been done. Anyone know about this?

Hey, I've got an idea, how about if I enter "sex" on Google. and see if there is anything out there. I bet you there have been a few "naughty" people who have posted a racy picture or two. Maybe even a lady in a bikini. Has anyone ever tried to see if this has been put on websites anywhere? I'll bet you that exciting new online developments like this are taking place almost every day.

I'll let you know what I find.

The power lies in your hands my friend. Get me 3 rumors (at least one ***CONFIRMEd***1 by an inside source, like an Apple janitor, or Steve Jobs' spying neighbor), one leaked hardware and/or software box pic (check the kerning and shadows before posting please, spare us), and 4 high quality mock-ups (something besides an iPhone and the next G5 case would do fine) within the next 72 hours.




Almost forgot,
