Paris Expo Announcements:

1) G5 Powerbook
2) Windows iTunes
3) iPod Peripherals
4) New 30" Cinema Display
5) Revised 17" & 23" Cinema Displays
6) Panther OX X 10.3
7) New Wireless Keyboard & Mouse

This will be the best announcement!

The catch is the shipping dates of all the products won't be that day... but probably 1 month post Apple Expo.

MARK MY WORDS, Junior!

Thanks for the rumor recap.

How can you be so confident after just flooding the boards with questions and speculations for the past couple weeks?

Oh wait, are you MacOSrumors.com source? Now it makes sense.

Just to add fuel to the fire guys......

Apple Australia have the 1GHz TiBook next available week 2/3 September.

I think it's safe to say people, that new PowerBooks are on their way. I would think Paris is the scene and shipping immediately on announcement.

I suspect that SJ knows that we are all waiting for new laptops and by making us wait gets us more and more edgy for the announcement to be made. I think he'll be thinking that all will be redeemed by having them readily available in stores!!!!

That's what I think. But hey.....what do I know??

Let's hope so I'll be there, and want to see the new PowerBooks the moment I step out of the Stevesters Note, dazed in glorious RDF, willing to $pend $$$ 8)

How long have the 12 inchers been out for now? Is an update to 1 GHz for these too much to hope for?

Think Secret reports of "some sort of problem that pushed the release [of the new 15" & 17" Powerbooks] to next month."

is it unusual for Steve to 'note a Paris expo? Especially since he doesn't speak French. Perhaps he's just announcing a new Apple store in Paris or something else more specific for their market.
post #48 of 279
Honestly, I don't remember Steve ever giving a keynote in Paris...unless here was there for the intoduction of the 'La iLivre chaux'.

And at the risk of stating the bleeding obvious, it would be really, really appropriate to announce Euro iTMS at Paris. You can be sure that Apple would really, really want to make this happen. So maybe they've succeeded?

As for the Windoze iTMS thing, wouldn't this be almost a certainty? I assume that iTunes is a Carbon app; if so, wouldn't it be almost trivial to recompile for Windoze? After that, of course, there's lots of optimisation and bug fixing to be done. But it seems to me that the current timeframe should be about right for iTMS: Dark Side Edition.

So perhaps this will be a keynote that's mainly about services, with new/updated products taking a back seat.

Neither one is easy, and only one has been promised "by the end of the year" (Windows iTunes) so from that it's not hard to conclude which Apple feels is more likely to appear first.

I haven't been following the geek news too assiduously lately, but I thought that some kind of iTMS-like service was already going in Europe. If so, wouldn't that pave the way for Apple to follow suit?

I can't remember if it's like "BuyMusic.com" and it's basically just a container for songs sold at whatever price the label sets with whatever conditions the label sets, instead of being consistent the way iTMS is.

If so, that's a lot easier to pull off, because it punts the contractual wrangling to the consumer.

There was a rumour of a DP 1.8, no one has brought this up but I wonder if it might just slot into the range in Paris.

Whooo hooo I received my badge today with a K to open the keynotes magic doors! I cant wait!

I am sure they will give a shipping date for 10.3 but will already have free copies for everyone at the keynote. They will also introduce the wireless keyboard and mouse and give everyone at the keynote a free wireless mouse. End fantasy.

Okay so I wont get anything free except for some good Steve karma!

We'll all walk out of the Keynote with this buzzing in our RDF-inebriated brains, and Steve will give it to us for free!

For all the daydreamer let´s recap the Paris news:

* New PowerBooks
They will show (12/17 speed bumped G4, new Alu-15 G4). Even when in january or february the PW G5 will appear, that does not mean that from then on all PB will be G5. Rather the Paris PB will remain for longer time and the G5-PB will just be the new flagship model.

* iTunes Music Store
Don't expect iTMS/Win, because this does not interest Mac users at all. iTMS/Win will be introduced on a more general interest show (e.g. NAMM, 15-18th January 2004).
Don't expect iTMS/Europe, because the laws in the different countries are just too complicated. But maybe we will see a iTMS/France or even an iTMS/half-europe. If Apple covers France, Germany, UK and Italy, it has about 80% of the european market. That would be a start...

Grüezi!
You forgot one market I'd sort of be interested in, and where Apple historically is quite prominent: iTMS/Switzerland 8)

OTOH, I doubt there will be G4 PowerBooks after the G5 PB is introduced; G4 iBooks however might sell quite well.

True! If Apple's world-wide market share would be as big as Apple CH, we all would be glad. Yeah, and I'm quite sure that iTMS/CH would sell well over 5 songs a day...

Concerning G5 only PB in Jan./G4-iBook: I don't think Apple will immediately switch to G4-iBooks, cause if G5-books are not available for some weeks (sounds familiar, does it? ) the G4-iBooks would cannibalize the market for G4-PBs...

There was a wee article in the Toronto Star's @Biz section today regarding Universal Music's price drop for CDs. What was interesting was a quote from Canadian CEO Randy Lennox that was something like, "We will be offering our entire catalogue for download, priced a $0.99 a song (CDN)"
Lennox did not specify how the songs would be made available but I'm going to be optimistic and assume it is in reference to iTunes.

Sounds like iTMS will start going international this fall so maybe SJ will be announcing this during his fabled Stevenote. And he'll announce iTunes for Windows.

We may never use it, but we should care becouse this could add a lot of revenue to Apples bottom line.

If they release it for Europe they must include all the countries. Or else...

Well, I ordered my 15" custom Ti book last thursday and it still says it will ship tomorrow the 5th. I would think if this happens, that they're still making the Ti's and there's not going to be a huge upgrade... or any at Paris. Just my opinion though. Dang I can't wait to get my first mac.

A local Apple supplier has updated his catalogue and specifically referred to Paris Expo for following updates:

- Powerbook
- iMac
- iPod !! next generation knocking on the door

As Pscates said, you can't hope for more than 3 major hardware announcements. Seems he's right (again).

So, is anybody going to Paris?

I will, and I will hopefully see the keynote, too. Who else is coming?

Apple already has a prototype PowerBook G5 running, even showing it to a select crowd.

That being said, there is no way it will ship before January I don't think. Though, thanks to Motorola, Apple will likely be forced to announce it in October, and ship it in January, Just to make sure that people know that there is progress happening.

So much for the year of the PowerBook being 2003.
