Well, it has been a while.

This might be the case.

Let's begin the keynote!

Steve came on the stage.

"We don't have not much time today. We have so many thing to announce that I will extend the time to two and half hour or more. If you don't have time you can leave now."

1) New iMac with Flat screen CRT 17 inch iMac with G4 chip. It is replacement for school and lower price market.

- Everybody liked but not satisfied.

2) New iMac with 15 inch wide TFT-LCD iMac
with G4. But it has big suprise!

- It has Raycer chip bult in! : FAST OS X GUI and real Fast 3D for GAME!
- It has Domino chip built-in: HDTV capable, MP3 encode & Decode, MPEG 4 Encode & Decode!
- and it has Gigawire with Airport II built in !: Now it is the real Digital Hub !

- Everybody liked but asking for more !

I think it was Fun project for steve to have Apple made Audio for his trip between Pixar & Apple.

Also. It could be a test system for Market research. :confused:

Let's see this way.

Steve: We will make this great product i**** v2. But it will be little more expensive than what you marketing guy think ! I don't want to see cube situation again !

Marketing Man 1: Well. I have a idea !.

Steve: say so !

Marketing Man 1: Why don't we test the market first ?

Steve: How ?

Marketing Man 1:Since we need this and this component to build this thing, we need to buy great number of the part to reduce the overall cost.

Steve: And ?

Marketing Man 1:Let's make MP3 player with this part and put a high price on it to test the Market. If many people buy it with certain price than we can check the price structure and also we can reduce the overall manufacturing cost since More people buy MP3 than Mac!
( oops. ) <img src="graemlins/bugeye.gif" border="0" alt="[Skeptical]" />

Steve:If you did not come up with good idea, I should FIRE you. But I like your idea. Since my walkman is so outdated , I need my own MP3 with Apple logo on it. Shall we call it iMusic?

Marketing Man 2: No since we can transform it to i**** v2, we need not to contain it as Music Device. We need another name!

Steve: One more shouting, you might be fired!.
Well we need Unisex name which Nobody can guess what it does contain, I think I can call it "iPod". What you guys are think?

Marketing Man 1 &2: It is wonderful name! ( I don't want to be fired ! )

Steve: Than do it !

------------------------------------------------

I think this is the story.

Two things going for Kormac77:

1.) He post(ed) early. Kormac76 always posted about the same time.

2.) He always edited his post almost immediately. Kormac76 had a habit of doing this, too.

But editing what? I say to make his native-tongue ENGLISH sound less native.

So, my radiological detection device is pointing to the positive.

Sounds a lot like the old kormac, from pidgin English right down to the staggering of posts ("part 2 later") but so what, the whole i**** just got boring last time.

Always glad to see a Kormac post. So the i**** v2 is soon to arrive? Do you have any more recent info on it? Processor? OS? HWR? Size?
post #13 of 255
Hi Kormac, (if indeed it really is you)... It is good to see you posting on the boards again. I for one am hoping that your ideas are spot on this time around...

Are you hinting that the i**** v.2 will have many of the same parts (e.g. 5gb Hard drive) as the iPod? If so, it seems that the i***2 would be enhanced by what, a larger screen? A decent chip?

Does any of this have to do with the firewire port on the iPod? Could the iPod connect to v2 to give it the HD it needs (and with which it is not sold?)

By the way, Kormac, just for my peace of mind, If you recall us chatting around the time of MacWorld NY 2000, we had chatted about doing something together, but never managed to meet up at the expo.

You can now send me a private message (I think) on these boards, or just mention it in a post, letting me know you remember, and thereby verifying that it is indeed you, for we have had our share of imposters around here, as you can probably imagine.

Keep posting!

Kormac76 was truly full of shit. He knew nothing. And if you are he, you know nothing aswell. Anyone can talk in vague hypothetical terms, pillage a few tech developmentsw from other comapnies in the industry and pass it off as rumor. Till the day you die I will keep telling people that you DID NOT predict the GOOD BETTER BEST iMacs. According to you they were to have LCD screens for nearly the past two years already. If you are the original Kormac either post something real or just shut up. If you're just an imitator... Have a nice day.

You're just jealous because his imagination is better than yours.

Lighten up. This is supposed to be fun.
post #22 of 255
Listen up people. Kormac has nothing. According to him we were supposed to be carrying uber PDAs for the last year, been using flat panel iMacs with different size screens for the past two years, and using an iMac with all manner of digital, TV, stereo I/O and recordingt and playback functions built-in since last spring.

uber PDA's will come in the form of Palm OS 5.O on StrongArm (type) chips. You don't need an insider to predict that. Also A-V will eventually achieve full computer integration. You don't need any info to predict that either. It's all stuff that the whole industry is doing, it doesn't take any imagination to say that Appl is on it too. Well duh?

But Kormac has the added distinction of being patently wrong in all of his specific details. Imagination? sure. Insight? Nada.

"Here's a neat idea, wouldn't this be cool..." is fun.

Pretending you have inside info, and specifically telling everybody that you have concrete details on products soon to be released by Apple.... that's just lying.
post #25 of 255
Well, actually, that's your opinion since we can't prove anything either way.

and I'll be damned if he ever used the word 'concrete'

it's merely information peppered with imagination and speculation.

You know, rumors.


and if anyone can make this stuff up, have it make some sense . . . well go ahead.
If nothing else, the bits of information he puts together are interesting.
post #26 of 255
You know what, if he is full of sh*t then so what? Instead of discussing what or who kormac is, lets just discuss what he proposes, it always generates some very good discussion. These are discussion boards, right?

If you do not like what he/she has to say then simply do not read it.

Perhaps you don't remember the cryptic cloak and dagger bullsh!t. Hey Kormac, DOMINO DOMINO DOMINO!!!

Before the site went down there was this little cult of Kormac a$$ lickers eating up his huge heaping piles of crap.

Why don't we take the sum total of his posts then and see what they said.

iMacs (the way he predicted them) Good Better Best, to have LCDs of different sizes almost 2 years ago! HA!

i****v1
i****v2 both to be some kind of Newton/emate organizer/media player with all sorts of integration. What did we get? FVCK ALL! Now he's trying to spin iPod into the mold of his predictions about the overall digital strategy. Well fact is he NEVER mentioned anything like it. iPod is an essentially single purpose design that does it's single purpose very well. It's secondary use exists as a no cost extra convenience -- the parts were already there, so why not a firewire HDD too -- but IT WILL NOT move beyond that (barring, perhaps, some voice recording). ALL of Kormac's posts were about multifunction. Evidence ***DOMINO*** the ultimate media hub, powered by mac, set-top, slate, slab, thingy device.

Overall, he's only been pointing at general trends. If it happens it's because the whole industry is moving in those directions anyway. honestly, who doesn't have a web pad, a wireless internet device, a consumer A/V machine, and PDA's under development, in prototype, and in focus group/feasibility study? NONE, of the major players.

Rumor requires specifics, proof, you know, evidence? What Kormac has given you is speculation at first dressed up as rumor. With big piles of "Oh, I can't reveal this right now, or I don't know when this is coming" When pressed about his poor record Kormac quickly back-tracked on his former insider persona with quips of "Oh, I'm not an insider anymore, I just like to post here, I like you guy... etc" &lt;-- and fix your f-ing grammar for sh!t sakes, these lame attempts at fake Korean ESL syntax are making me nuts.

I remember that you are full of it. I'm not gonna let others forget the steaming piles you've passed in here before. Your BS insider ploy won't work this time.

PS. If you're just an imitator, then disregard this little rant. If someone can verify whether this is the original Kormac please let me know, so I can start to lay into him a bit.

So currently we have Kormac75, Kormac76, and Kormac77. Are there others that I'm missing?
post #31 of 255
Bad form Matsu,

I do remember the old Kormac quite well. And indeed I remember him attaching caveates to the effect that a lot of which he spoke was partly conjecture.

You need to lighten up. It's been a year, and your still not over it.

sizzle chest - nicely put.

Macintosh - please read above. It's also not too late for an apology.

I thought it was Mastergating which come to think of it is a nice conflation of masturbating and mastigating (both apt discriptors of fora in general). One might also see colorations of Gates as master, or an assortment of D&D type characters in there. A good name. From a proud family.

Did he? I must have missed it. I certainly read his confession and the parts where he re-lived his great prank but I didn't see the part where he apologized.
