This could become bigger than the glyphs at <a href="http://www.bungie.org" target="_blank">www.bungie.org.</a> Though it doesn't seem like there will be any real clues in the messages. But I'm hoping the prize(s) will be alot more impressive.

This reminded me of the puzzle teaser for A.I. Atificial Inteligence. Anyone remember those puzzles that they had set up, and you followed like a path? Wouldn't it be cool if Apple did this before each Macworld? Would you pay for such a service? Hmmm I think I hit onto something big here. It was a huge succes at AI. Does ANYONE know what I am talking about?

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 )
Red Hot Chili Peppers - "Cupertinofornication"

post #221 of 1762
yeah...i was checking last night...the slogan changed just after midnight Pacific Coast Time.......so it was 1 am here in albuquerque (Mountain Time)...2 am central and 3 am on the beloved East Coast...sorry, but i'm sure it will follow the same tonight...just set your alarm, do a quick up-load of the apple home page and then forget getting back to sleep when they post something like:

5 days to MacWorld San Francisco
Everything you dreamed of and more...

Possibly because Apple is based in Cupertino, California, which happens to be on the west coast, which is in Pacific time.

You know what would be funny is if they quote people from the boards. I can not recall anything from what people have said but it would be just great if they did!

<a href="http://news.cnet.com/news/0-1006-200-8328617.html?tag=mn_hd" target="_blank">cnet has commented on Apple's front page</a>

They also point to the still 3 day ship time for Powermacs and Powerbooks.

I wish they went by eastern time. I can't stay up much longer since I have to get up at 6. Damn Apple!

Simple solution: don't sleep. Find something to do until 6. Make sure there's no blood in your caffiene stream

Or just sleep and find out in the morning...

Well said.

Think about it, guys. From Apples POV, the iMac is the most important product in its recent history. It saved the company -- not even so much finanically (though it didnt hurt) - but it made people pay attention again.

Introducing an all-new iMac is a big, big event for Apple. Esp. considering that it's going to be amazing, whatever it is.

'Course, speed-bumped models all around, the announcement of OS X shipping default on all machines, a new iPix app, and breaking the Ghz barrier... all just icing on the cake.

Apple is definitely milking the publicity out of this one.

Geez, we're all staying awake so that we can see a silly little *teaser* message on a computer maker's website? Could we *get* any more pathetic?

At least it gives me something to do.

post #238 of 1762
of course it may very well change from 6 days to:

5 days to MacWorld San Francisco

but then stay with, as the second line:

Count the Days. Count the minutes...etc

i would be disappointed...g
