I had a dream last night that today Apple unveiled... the dual 2.14 ghz Powermac. It was like the G4 days all over again. Not a good dream.

I need to lay off the snacks before I go to sleep maybe.

Is that "memory-promo" to get rid of PMs, iMacs etc or to get rid of RAM-modules? If it is to clear out stocks of PM G5s, why would they release new models today?

I'd say that the memory promo is the best indicator of the release date that we have.

Also, the good Dr. was browsing in here a few minutes ago ... wonder why he didn't post. haha.

Not to be overly pendantic...

But at $5 a pop, it would be impossible for said poster to owe any amount of money that does not end in '0' or '5'.

uh...

for those who don't speak ZeroWing...

a Paypal (or similar) pool would be cool
everybody ante up to play (token buy-in)
post prediction (release date, specs, whatever)
only unedited entries qualify
winner takes the pot

or would this violate some Guideline on 'gambling'

It's threads like this that make FH such a joke in the rest of the Mac web.
Attention Internet Users!

"it's" contraction of "it is"
"its" possessive form of the pronoun "it".

It's shameful how grammar on the Internet is losing its accuracy.

I think for it to be legal no one could take a cut as a bookie. All the winnings would have to go to the person who won.

The problem is how would you ensure that Apple employees or friends of Apple employees would not start betting?

It would be interesting to see how accurate the betting market would be though.

Well as many on this post commented. I should never be able to post here again. I agree to never do so again.

I'm sorry my contact was incorrect with the date. Trust me I, am going to buy the Rev. B and wish it could have been today. But unfortunately that didn't happen.

Nothing but, shame... shame... utterly incorrect assumptions of truth have led me to dispair and emptiness. Never to speak again!

Good Bye AppleInsider... I wish your members didn't vote me off this island.

You know, Messiahtosh said he was going to slink away for a bit after he bought his blue iPod mini. But he's still just as active. Maybe even MORE so.

So spare us. You ain't goin' nowhere...

post #107 of 109
I wonder how he is going to pay us.
post #108 of 109
Well, really, he only put up $5 to bet, so either it is owed to the first person who took him on it or it is evenly distributed among all claimants.

Dr_Holistic:
Sorry to hear your contact was wrong though, new PM's would have been nice. (To think about, that is, since I have no money)
