Oh and whoever did the mathamatical prediction of 34 pages, you probably will be wrong. The PPM (posts per minute) have been increasing so it is non-linear so you cant take the average like you did.
Plus, this thread has become a chat room of sorts since java chat is gone .

blabla, I sure would ! . but it's a long long way... and I hate to leave home...hhehehhe

the heat can be controled with the smart use of tactical air cooling devices

another thought : who remembers transmeta's code morphing tecnology ?

couldn't apple use transmeta chips or transmeta technology to use the very high clockspeeds of x86 processors , but running native ppc code ?

I heard that x86 chips have a translating engine to translate x86 very old instruction set to a native instruction set...

there were rumors transmeta was going to be aquired ....

it all adds up..
post #1244 of 1762
Well Transmeta's chips haven't been clocking as high as Motorola, so that seems like a dead end as far as current technology is concerned. They have brains though, and like Raycer, perhaps Apple would buy them for future development.

What is the chance that Apple has a clockless chip? What would the performance benefits be for a chip like that?

Just want to repsot this because the page changed so quickly it got caught on last page:

Lets try something new: What are Apple doing of "extras" around the world? What have Apple France, Apple Sweden, Apple Germany aso done extra for this show that they haven´t done before or which remarks have the local Apple representatives said or done that is special?

We just read the statement from Apple Norway. Apple Denmark has invited the general public to see the keynote at two locations (for the first time ever? Heklp me here JLL). Normally its only press, resellers aso.

Hmm.....the snow continues to fall here in C-Town. Yesterday it looked like there was barely any snow outside, grass starting to show up in my yard and the bball court (aka driveway) was clear. Now, everything's covered in white. Nah, our school never closes. Don't be so silly.

There was a report recently about the press notification from Apple Netherlands, no? or was that for the iPod?

here's the link to CNN:

<a href="http://www.cnn.com/2001/TECH/ptech/12/19/apple.revolutionary.idg/" target="_blank">http://www.cnn.com/2001/TECH/ptech/12/19/apple.revolutionary.idg/</a>

No info about any events they are holding in the Netherlands for the occasion though.

The iWalk *has legs and actually walks*, which is why it's called "I WALK" !!!

Don't you people EVER think for yourselves?

a clockless chip would be so f*c8ing great !

it's at least 10 times faster than any other thing..

the only delay it has is the components delay... and they are much smaller than 2 ghz..

but apple would have to build a motherboard that is clockless too.. with a clockless bus..... and some form of translation to a clocked PCI/AGP bus..

a clockless RAM should be VERY VERY expensive... so apple would need a translation for the RAM refresh clock also...

but it would be way beyond rumor sites ( well, not anymore), and where no PC has gone before.... and would blow us all away... and it would be the ultimate backstage pass to the future...

It would be a nice machine, but holy crap, how do we explain how fast a machine is then?

When kids in my youth group go "Macs suck cause they're slow..."

And I'll only be able to say, "Well, even though the Pentium 4 is at 2.2 ghtz now, the G5 is actually so fast there's no number they put on it..."

And they won't believe me.

A bit old. We mailed the guy and he wouldn´t tell. But since he have had problems with Apple (and the hype around it gave extra hits on his HP) we think he put it up there deliberatly without knowing anything.

Someone has a "This message cannot be read on a G5"-signature as a reference to VueScan

Yes, AFAIK it's the first time that Apple DK has invited the lowly public like you to a keynote presentation.

Apple Germany is also hosting some kind of keynote thing for the first time AFAIK.

Apple Norway/Sweden/Denmark does not share the same offices. The Danish one is in Søllerød north of Copenhagen.

But Apple Denmark and Apple Norway are managed by Apple Sweden (Apple is pretty big in Sweden).

Hey guys, Spymac was right, go to this url and you'll find the specification of the new Powermacs
This site is a commercial site in france that it
used to post the specifications of the new products before they are unveiled.
They did the some with The Ti upgrade last time when they included a combo drive....

I think they just copied spymac "to be prepared":

"Il semblerait qu' un PDA "Made in Apple" soit sur le point de voir le jour ! l'iWalk (son nom reste Ã* confirmer) pourrait bien être l'une des surprises annoncées par Steve Jobs pour la MacWorld Expo qui commence lundi ! l'iWalk utiliserait un MacOS X "light", avec une interface brossée, et des boutons similaires Ã* ceux de QuickTime 5. En outre, l'utilisation de cet appareil semble se faire par l'emploi d'un stylet sur l'écran, avec une reconnaissance de l'écriture assez puissante. Il serait pourvu d'un navigateur internet, de plusieurs ports (entrée et sortie audio, port FireWire, port infrarouge)."

Translated by babelfish...

bel Fish Translation, In English:
It would seem that a PDA " Made in APPLE " is on the point to be born! the iWalk (its name remains to be confirmed) could be well one of the surprises announced by Steve Jobs for MacWorld Expo which begins Monday! the iWalk would use MacOS X " light ", with a brushed interface, and buttons similar to those of QuickTime 5. Moreover, the use of this apparatus seems to be done by the use of a stylet on the screen, with a recognition of the rather powerful writing. It would be equipped with an Internet navigator, several ports (entered and left audio, FireWire port, infra-red port).

Anyone want to guess what will be on the Apple.com homepage on Monday?

I am thinking a a message similar to the ones we have been getting for the last 7 days, with a background image of the mystery product (that is a faint outline that can't barely be seen).
No that would be mean
