Just wondering - there really should be more UK guys round here. The closest to Harrow I've got in my short term so far as a Med student is Northwick Park Hospital - It looks Like Chernobyl General - Radiotherapy on all floors and for a 30 mile radius !

Anyhow, that was my first reaction, but hay, I'm still alive!

I am so freaking pumped!!!
My friend just found out he is going to be on the floor at the keynote. He's going to be armed with cellphone and airport equipped PB so as to send me instant updates.

Yeah, yeah QT stream, whatever. That thing will crash 5 minutes in.


Pumped!!!

I did my degree in the University next to Northwick Park hospital! And I've been taken to the A&E there a few times too! Hahaha... but anyway, I doubt if Micro Anvika (big London Apple Store) will be showing the keynote... which will be at around 5pm in the UK right?

We are all going to fall asleep like when we were kids waiting for Santa Claus to show up, then we will wake up 7 hours after the keynote. LOL,... I just had to post on this thread at least once. I have my credit card in hand and I am sitting here just waiting for the new Power Macs. I just hope the hype is for a super fast tower and not for the iCarStereo served by Apple's i-InTheSky internet service. Oh well, have fun everyone, cant wait to read the threads tomorrow, it will be almost as much fun as this.

One of the main reasons I'm so hyped is that I just so happen to have a few K lurking in the bank account ready to buy a new Mac when my leased G4 goes back on Jan 20th... a new product revamp would be sooopah dooopah... I don't mind waiting a couple of weeks either... this IS JUST LIKE CHRISTMAS WHEN I WAS A KID!!! [actually I hope it isn't...

Wow. I went away to eat dinner and this thread really took off. :eek:

Any way, the excitement I felt this morning when I read the new slogan still hasn't worn off. For the past week, I'd read the new slogan in the morning, be really excited, but it would die down by the afternoon.

Apple, all I have to say is that you'd better not let us down!
post #1336 of 1762
Its nightynight for me too.

But I´ll leave you all with a little assignment:

Its a program called iHam on iRye

<a href="http://www.stimpsoft.com/" target="_blank">Download it here</a>

It is a remote control over L/WAN for iTunes but I can´t figure out if its also serves as an live MP3 server. If anyone have downloaded it please try if you can use my iTunes.

IP: 80.62.38.37
Login: AI
Pass: Kormac
(and no it doesn´t work outside iHam on iRye so don´t even try screw with my HD over ftp okay?)

You can´t use my MP3s (too low bandwith and we don´t want to get sued ) but you should be able to get the file "on the war" which is a 48 kbps document read by one of the voices in MacOS.

please please please try it. And if anyone have the iServer running please give (or mail) me your IP, login and pass so I can try it th other way.

If it doesn´t function as a server for your computer fell free to play whatever you want from it. I will be listening to iTunes from now until I fall asleep (a couple of hours) and I would be pleased to know it works by hearing Speed metal at full volume just before I fall asleep (and no I don´t have speed metal on my HD. Nothing you can find at least )

Psantora, It is all about the argueing...

I just like to slip that "I concede" thing in there whenever I can in a discussion... to salt the wound...

It gives the impression that I am right...

which I am...

Continuing with the superstition theme, we should get at least 1.33 Ghz G4's. Can we get that total to 1.6?

BTW?

Anyone think Apple will put up one more slogan for the morning of the keynote, to stay up untill stevenote is finished???

I'd say yes to both. 1.6 GHZ is not too far fetched and tomorrow AM I expect something else, maybe a picture of a gift wrapped up with a bow....

Considering that Apple must change the number in the countdown, a final slogan is almost guaranteed. Of course, it may say nothing more than "Macworld is Here." However, I do not know the likelihood that the slogan will be another teaser.

that would suck. I'm sure apple has one last slogan, even if it is "one more thing"

What impact might a 70,000 pieces per month order have on the prize of the Power4 (for now it's a low quantity, high prize proc.,but...)? What does it mean to it's prize if Apple commits to use only IBMs G4s for its consumer line (and Moto is out)?

I'm in agreement with you (except for the fact that it's PRICE, not PRIZE

I think the Power4 at unknown speeds is a good guess.

I'm going to say it will all be about contrasts -- a nexus between the old & the new...

For example, they will probably keep the CRT imac at the low end, and have the Flat-panel imac in the upper eschelon.

Same thing for the Power Mac...
G4 on the low end...introductory G5s in the upper tier

And finally
A faster G4 PowerBook (finally) tinted black to match the new pro towers. The new Black G4 powerbook will have an 800MHz G4 processor and a better mobile graphics chip, plus the addition of another FW port, and a 1/2-pound less in weight.
