Think 1984 Duh... I think Steve Jobs already told us in his own way.

Two problems: Even if it is the most watched sporting event in the world (I believe that is F1 BTW but never mind) and it is piped into every country in the world, every country in the world doesn't get US network commercials. Consequently that point would be sorta moot. OTH the US is of course Apple's biggest market but I question the sales impact of Super Bowl advertising compared to the price of the air time.

Second problem is that Apple hasn't bought ad-time during the Super Bowl and has publicly stated that they won't.

I'm pretty certain that it won't happen, but who knows?

Recent reports on the subject have been crossed with mumblings of project 'q38'; a tracking name which is rumored to pertain to the desktop revision itself or the new series of 90-nanometer PowerPC G5 chips that will power them.

During the week of Macworld Expo, sources were vouching for the completion of the q38 project and claimed that the units were ready for introduction. "We were kind of expecting them," one source said excitedly, "I don't know what the hold up is... they're done. Maybe they're attempting to distance announcements or have yet to build up a consistent supply of the microprocessors."

with that said, i'll start the countdown at 7

nienty nanos that means G5 PoerBook...rite?

You are just demonstrating your US Bias. The Super Bowl is not even in the top three. The most watched sporting events in the world are:

1. Soccer World Cup
2. Olympic Games
3. Rugby World Cup

Evidence:

Your last sentence (which I did not bother to quote) just reinforces the widely held view that people from the US should, read more, learn more, and speak less!
post #92 of 411
Well, for one single games I think the superbowl is it (or quite close).

If you include events, the superbowl is certainly not number one in the US either. The whole NFL playoffs I imagine lag behind both the olympics and the NCAA basketball tournament in the US.

It's enough that the Super Bowl is an extremely popular event, especially in the country where Apple does half their business, and that it has a longstanding tradition (started by Apple!) of ambitious advertising.

That said, Steve basically announced that the whole year would be a celebration, so looking to the Super Bowl or the 24th or any other particular day is narrowing things down a bit much.

The 24th, or the Tuesday after the 24th, are perfectly good candidates for announcements, but there will be many more. Apple could have sent out invitations with "be quiet about this or else" attached on a few days' notice, or they could simply fire off a press release and slap Hammer Girl on the front page for the day.

If you were 50 I doubt you would have read half as much as I have.
I think it would be wise of you to start again in large bold text.

Which was true at one time I was sure of it, and someone posted the stat.

Agreed. I could give a rats arse about sporting events, profanity filters, Americans and unAmericans, whatever.

This is a G5 thread, folks.

Please stop wasting everyone's time with political/sporting discussion. Go to AO.

i accidentally dropped my tiBook on the pavement recently (encased in a sturdy/trusty Trager bag, however landing zipper side up - and thus not so protected ) and it suffered a cracked front corner. Only superficial, but a scar not unlike that of Willem DeFoe in Platoon.

I need a big tax write-off in 2004, and a G5 powerbook sounds like just the medicine. Come on...gimme...
post #106 of 411
well the 24trh has come and gone and no new G5s is there any chance that they heard the rumors and pushed it back a few days to supprise everyone?

According to one source "something big" is expected on Monday January 26th, 2004. Lower PowerMac inventories suggests possible updates to that line, but there are also hints at "something else"...

Less certain whispers, however, have spanned the range with Sat introductions, PowerMac, and iMac G5 rumors. More certain details will be posted as available.

we might yet see something from apple.

Y'know, this is getting kinda desperate.

The Apple Mac is 20 years old today and not a jot on their website about it.

At least a 'Happy 20th' badge?

Anybody else getting fed up of the iPod Mini?

It's nice. We get it. I maybe even want one in six months time...

Now, show us the money!

NEW 2004 MAC, PLEASE!

Let's start the goddamn MAC celebration!!! G5 everything. 3 gig PMs! Powerbook. 10.4!!!

Sigh.

omg if they come out with dual 3GHz, that means they'd probably beat intel to 4Ghz, and all of us would rejoice. (of course that day will come eventually, cause intel sucks, but it'd be nice right now)
