AND all iphones will call iWoz. Its SJ's way of punishing Woz for his book.

this is kinda funny because Woz used to get hundreds of calls a day from toddlers (his number was 1 888 888 8888). see article: http://www.wired.com/news/culture/ma...ory_page_next1

I passed 70-290 with 1000/1000 today, and I can refer a good site, pass4sure.com

I am a fresh man for the certification, and my company need employee get MCSE2003 cert in 3 month, I start with some MOC books and frustrated with huge contents. and I failed at the first try for 70-290, but I met a friend who taking 70-290 also, he passed easily, and I know from him a good site named pass4sure.com, I used 70-290 from Pass4sure, every questions WORD 4 WORD was on the test. Unlike testking where you have to read huge number of questions (which more than half will never be on the test) these were easy to read b/c only about 200 even fewer questions. They also don't change any wording or layout like testking.

The New MacBook (non-pro) models will roll out Tuesday May 16,2006. This information is according to a friend of mine working at the Apple Retail store in Atlanta, GA.

Patience is a virtue.

MacBooks are here, and the Pros are updated.

 

Your = the possessive of you, as in, "Your name is Tom, right?" or "What is your name?"

 

You're = a contraction of YOU + ARE as in, "You are right" --> "You're right."

Friday May 19th 5th av store to open 6pm


post #134 of 188
Cool, I just placed my Macbook order. Can't wait!!!

This theory MAY be true, but as I said before, we have to see if the next major round of software updates is NOT followed by a hardware release (a "negative control"). Seeing as how there are so many hardware lines that are released throughout the year, chances are there won't be this opportunity to test the theory.

Still, it's fun to think the theory may have a little predictive power to it!
post #135 of 188
I can't really see how this theory proves anything at all. If the last cycle "ended" on April 24 and the next "began" on the same day, doesn't this just show that Apple is, you know, constantly updating software (like any company with as many products as they have should be)?

After a month of dormancy, the cycle has seemingly started back up again with yesterday's iPhoto 6.0.4 update, the Shake universal binary update (and price drop!) and a rumored 10.4.7 update nearly ready for release. Hardware-wise, isn't Woodcrest due for release June26th?

I believe that is ready to ship from intel to the manufacturers on June 26th, but Apple will put it through another rigorous testing phase, and it should be ready by WWDC. WWDC is only a little over a month away.

Ahhh... but don't forget these releases:

Bluetooth Firmware Update 1.2.1 (PPC)
Aperture 1.1.2


This coupled with the fact that iPods have been averaging over 2 new releases every year they are overdue. Could this be the signal for new iPods?
post #140 of 188
iTunes 6.0.5 is also supposed to be on it's way with some nice little Nike+ related content.

very interesting thread... im glad it was allowed time to "prove" the theroy and not locked.

but one question remains... could someone who knows, PLEASE explain to me who or what this rolo thing is... you know, so i can join the "inner sanctum"

thanks

Rod
post #144 of 188
Rolo is a guy that is all in the know on apple's flatscreen tv/computer combo. He heard all about that in some sandwich bar but never really was able to produce some genuine elevator pictures of the actual product as proof.
Subsequently he was given a quite thorough AI-style public spanking which I believe hurt pretty hard...

ah!! thanks for the info {now i must learn the secret handshake }

If Mac Pros are released today...rongold wins and his software-release theory should become the one true way of determining hardware releases.
post #150 of 188
Well... After Apple finds out that someone has found out the way that they introduce products (If he is right ofc). Then they will change the way they introduce products just because they are Apple

Big update out the gate today 10.4.7.
(And a firmware update for 17-inch MacBook Pros)

Edit: I do have to add that I don't think there will be any new hardware next week as the 4th of July holiday falls on a Tuesday.

Yes, that is true. Next Tuesday is a holiday, BUT it is also the start of the NECC conference. That would be quite appropriate for Apple to release a new educational type eMac (if they decide to continue this marketing strategy).

Edit: Oh, they also just started offering the eMac Repair Extension Program in addition to all the firmware and software updates which, if you recall my theory, also acts to assure customers and to make sure everyone is happy so they can go on introducing new hardware without leaving purchasers of recent hardware out in the cold.

Something will be updated sooner than later. Right now Apple.com has some splash about how many shows are on iTunes. Apple never leaves "minor" stuff like this on the site for more than a couple of weeks.

With all due respect, rongold, your reasoning is flawed. The big updates happened 2 weeks ago...and no hardware was released last week.

If you're going to allow more than a week between software and hardware updates, then for sure your theory will be correct every single time because there's no doubt in anyone's mind that hardware releases will follow software releases at some point in time. Whether it be 1 week or 8 weeks, it'll happen. But if the hardware isn't released a week after the big software update, you can't claim it's an indication of an imminent hardware update.

Had the eMac been released next week...you'd have come here and posted the exact same thing...but it doesn't mean shit.

I had high hopes for that theory of yours but I don't think it's it. I was expecting a hardware release last week after the huge software update 2 weeks ago...and it didn't happen.
