Apple Hypes MWSF 2002 - Page 5  

post #161 of 1762
Apple is clearly teasing *us*, because the guys actually going to check apple.com every day until MWSF are quite likely to roam on boards such as AI... And Apple issued no denials about all the wild rumors going on, even though they did say they wouldn't release any new hardware at AppleExpo... They've been rated "outperform by <a href="http://www.stockpickreport.com/" target="_blank">SPR</a>... And IMHO, the "even by our standards" is directly directed at the small community that is actually aware of the wildest of rumors. Directed at all those that keep saying "nah, Apple wouldn't update so many products, they would overshadow one another".

So this still doesn't tell us what's brewing, and we probably won't know until MWSF... However, I think there is something in the pipeline that we're not even remotely aware of. Something that just hasn't ever leaked, and Apple can manage this...

Apple knows something, and I'm quite confident we will be blown away. Steve might even do a quick reference to the mac underworld, he has in the past...

Gotta love this

My current guess at why apple.com isn't accessible is because they're probably the subject of a DoS attack. The dark side of the Internet and attracting too much attention.

That's a damned confused line-up. How many processors and graphics cards in the iMacs at the same time? Two completely different lines of both PowerMacs and iMacs?

a Mac porn magazine would be freaky. The neatest things like the bath-newton2 (spymac büllshite), sexy girls with Soundsticks... if there's any demand, we could make a section only for women some guy with an iSub...

hey, i should stop. but i'm still a bit drunk from new year's eve and i'm hyperventilating from this "count on being blown away" stuff. so that's my excuse. :cool:

Clearly the hype is for a new Digital Device, not for the Mac updates that everyone already expects.

At the iPod introduction, Steve said something to the effect of, "We launched a new Digital Hub strategy a year ago, and the iPod is our first Digital Hub product..."

Forget about G5's, Apple and Motorola basically went to the press to put those rumors to rest. There will be faster, but not amazingly faster, G4s, an LCD iMac, and some digital device. Maybe a camera, maybe an all-in-one home device, maybe something else. Maybe the REAL Ginger, who knows.

Apple manipulating hype is like the Fed influencing stock market - the future G4 and iMac are already reflected in the current hype level, so only a surprise new device can really outdo the "discounting."

perhaps they are re-thinking the "count on being blown away" line in light of the terrorists situation around the world...or they are releasing the new iMacs LCD G4s and G5s early!?!?! :eek:

Besides the Mac porn magazine, which is great fun (Ally "Mac" Beal and Christina AG5ilera nude!!!), there should also be some songs, like:
Michael Jackson - "Mac or White" or "Mac in the mirror"
Baha men - "Who let Steve Jobs out" (HURR-HURR-HURR)
Roxette - "Milk and Toast an Apple"
Alcazar - "Crying at the CompUSAtheque"
Tom Jones with the Cardigans - "Burning down Bill Gates"
Enrique Iglesias and Withney Houston - "Could I have that OS forever"
Afroman - "Because I got Mac" ("now I'm j***ing off, and I know why, because I got Mac"? Hey, that's the missing link to the Mac porn magazine <img src="graemlins/smokin.gif" border="0" alt="[Chilling]" /> )
Red Hot Chili Peppers - "Cupertinofornication"

Man. This is gettin' outta hand.

Um, why do people keep talking about a "new digital device" with such confidence? If it's because of the slip by Apple Netherlands, I'll bet you a dollar that the release is referring to the new consumer Mac.

"innovative, revolutionary, and different"

"powerful, user-friendly, and eye-catching"

"enormous impact".

That is the new iMac, or whatever they're going to call it.

I'm absolutely certain the hype on the Apple website is referring to this product as well.

And as tradition requires, I'll stake my customary nude photograph on it.
Chicanery.

I'm holding you to that, Belle.

BTW, you ever hear from Decker?

I'm not sure about this new digital device either. LCD iMac is a done deal though.

I think it's actually worthy of a REAL confirmed.

Seems to me the hype wouldn't be just about the new iMac, and you would have to provide some photographic, um, entertainment for all us guys to peruse.

I think all this hype is about one thing:

They will introduce new mac.com mail servers that actually work!

I'm confused do you actually mean a sign that says: "removed at the demand of Apple legal" or are you just not telling us what will be there? I personally would think it would be funnier if they did the former...

Since this MWSF is really being hyped by Apple, I don't see how it could not be about the G5. Assuming that the rumored specs are correct (spec/floating performance approx. 3X the P4 at the same clock speed), and since Apple is mainly a computer company, then it seems to me that having a brand new processer 3X as powerful as your competitor would warrent this magnitude of hype.

The pre-announced GoLive system requirements say you need a G3 or a G4 to run it. No mention of a G5. Could this mean that - given the embargo - that G5's will NOT be announced at MWSF?

The Adope page wasn´t meant for publishing (hehe) so either they don´t know or Apple doesn´t have a G5 for us.

Or maybe this means that G5's will ship with 10.2....

If Apple releases a new mac that does what the Macintosh and iMac did for their sales then this kind of hype is reasonable.
