FWIW, i just came from the Cambridge Apple Store, and saw a worker tearing down all the store front displays (had been updated for the mini iPod). then, i was walking through the back, looking at games, and saw a guy (i can't say he was an employee, cuz he wasn't wearing the apple retail shirt) but he walked straight in all the way to the back, and into the back employee only area. he was walking a rolling lockbox (like we saw in the pictures from Paris Expo).

I'm highly confident now that something will be announced tomorrow. I can't really speculate what, since the lockbox didn't look quite big enough for a G5, but i'd guess a new G5 would come in a shipping crate anyway. But it wouldn't surprise me if the lockbox thing had all the new 'take one's and poster-type stuff.

anyway, looks like my Sony Platinum Select is going to take a big hit tomorrow!

Are you lying? Please, dont **** with me when I'm like this...this is just getting unhealthy. Geez, when I have a job after college someday, I wont be able to get married, own a house, or have kids...I need "mac money" for my addiction to all new Apple stuff. I'll be living on a steamvent with some sweet ass technology, at least!

hey,

like i said, i don't know what's going on, but i swear i saw the lockbox thing being wheeled in. one of the regular retail employees even looked at me, and asked if i had a question...i said i was just curious about the guy wheeling the box in. the employee was just like "yeah..."

i'm in the same boat, dying for a new Mac...i've been a 'starving grad student' for a couple years now, and need to retire my G3 to a life of fileserving. let's hope for tomorrow.

Apple is just toying with my emotions now... I can't work, I can't sleep, all I do is plow through every mac-related forum I can find, desperately seeking some glimmer of hope that *some* new Mac will come out soon.

Mac is worse than crack...

I have a grant due before 9 am, but I'll check the web before my second round of sleep..If they have anything coming out then boy o' boy did they every keep it under wraps. Not a hint other than the date and our collective hopes. I' thinking we have a little longer for the next something, its too quite. Good morning east-coasters and goodnight moon..

Well, nothing today.

No real surprise.

I guess January has indeed turned into a non-hardware month.

I am afraid Apple has lost interests in their computers.

Way to much hype on iPods.

Apple needs to get back to their roots.

The MP3 player thing won't last nearly as long.

Dont get all ridiculous over a "no update" day. Apple will take care of its computers because they do provide the revenue source for the company, not the iPod. The iPod is being hyped and understandably so, the company is in a unique position to completely dominate that market. While you say "it wont last long", I think youre wrong. Apple's roots are based on innovation and sometimes innovation comes at one major cost, time. Give some of that to them and you'll likely see what you want to see.

With so much media attention in the US focussed on the New Hampshire primary today, today is less-than-ideal for any sort of major announcements.

Well, the XServe is not mass market stuff.

The iPod is not hardware IMO.

iMacs in particular have been in need of a major refresh, for what, close to a year now?

I personally think that the iMac FP has been in need of a major update since about 6 months after its introduction. Speed boosts have been too small and paced too far apart to keep up with the pace of the industry.

If not during the Superbowl, which I highly doubt, I'm not expecting updates for several weeks, say 6-8 weeks, like the shipping dates for the new xServe.
I doubt updating to the 0.09µm G5 will be a silent upgrade, at least a press gathering or something scheduled @ the Moscone(sp?) Center, again barring a Superbowl ad. Especially if the long and much desired headless G5 iMac appears(forgive my fancifull wishing here, cause I very very much doubt this will happen soon, if ever)

But then again, I could be totally wrong, probably am.
just waiting to be included in one of Apple's target markets.
Don't get me wrong, I like the flat panel iMac, actually own an iMac, and I like the Mac mini, but...........

I've been thinking... We might see an anouncement after the markets close, which would imply "something big" company/business-wise rather than product related. This always has me worried.

Meet our new CEO, Dick Eisner!!!
NOOOO!!!

Off Topic Rant:

Looks like you could use some more university time yourself. What is it with people using apostrophes to pluralize common nouns? In my day not even a young child would make this mistake, but now I see it constantly in all types of media. Sad.

On Topic Rant:

Apple is "all iPod, all the time" until the Pepsi promo is in full swing and iPod minis are are stocked in every Best Buy. But there's a good reason for this...

With VT upgrading to Xserves I think we know where the first batch of .09 970s is going. Their first order delayed the original G5 launch and Steve won't make the same mistake twice. He'd much rather have a few more 1,000 G5 Xserve orders on the books than announce new Power Macs or G5 iMacs with no chips to put in them.
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.

The update is coming!

Now anyone know when? Maybe Steve is really waiting until the 3Ghz chips are ready so that he can say, "Look I know we said 1 year until 3Ghz. Well we were wrong. Looks like you will have to wait until, oh yeah, right now! Presenting the new dual 3Ghz G5." That would be so cool.

A quick question for Ensign Pulver: Does insulting someone's intelligence after they misplace an apostrophe on Appleinsider feed an egotistical need - or are you simply a jerk?

Regardless, perhaps you could scratch that itch by using your sig to whine about its, it's, or some other irrelevant point of punctuation, grammar or syntax.

For people whose world view extends beyond their own egos, Othello's joke was pretty funny...
