That's not to say I dislike AppleInsider's articles in general-- I love the site. I just think that particular article was kind of pointless. I guess a less toungue-in-cheek summary would have read, "Apple's MacBooks are not expected Tuesday." Much more to the point.

Yeah, the headline seemed to suggest that Appleinsider never reported or thought the release was going to happen today. "MacBook, iPod Changes Due Later This Month" as if the previous reports didn't exist. Something with "correction" before it would have been nice. Although, I doubt they are certain either way. Unless i missed something - and I know that ThinkSecret is usually retareded, but when they broke the story about today being 'MacBook Day', it started with the words "AppleInsider reports." The day is merely halfway over, so anything is still possible.

The grand opening of Steve's "Manhattan Project" will be a huge media event of Biblical proportions. It will be grid lock in Manhattan as tens of thousands of Mac faithful converge on the new temple to get a glimpse of Steve and the new MacBook and iPod.

I'm sure Apple will do some kind of crazy promotion like the lucky bags or give away iBooks and iPods to draw in the crowds. You just can't buy publicity like that. No need to send media invitations, their news trucks will be outside anyway. Mossburg and Pouge probably will have it a week before its announced so Steve can quote them gushing over it.

I'll be at the grand opening for sure.

This article isn't content free. It's an article debunking the claim on Think Secret that the MB would be released today. They didn't just say "someday", they said specifically not on May 9th, sometime later in the month. And it looks like they are right, and TS wrong (again).

TS keeps posting these dates, and suckers keep getting all in a lather, and then disappointed when Apple is "late". If AI keeps posting articles doing nothing more than disagreeing with TS, I DO consider that useful and informational and hope they continue.

When did AI claim it would be today? They have had a couple mentions of it being possible, but more likely later in the month.

"An official announcement remains on track for "this month" with the possibility that Apple will hold a press conference to usher in the notebooks next Tuesday."

Another article from January said "april or may".

Today wouldn't have been good with all the E3 blockbusters going on. What, they would show it in their little suite? Not good. Better to wait a week or two. Besides, the 17" just came out. Let it bask in glory a little.

Yes. It will be announced and released before the end of month.

Is that a garuntee straight from ThinkSecret again? Haha, if it is we better turn a deaf ear. Nah, I can't see the MacBook getting past this big store unveiling or the month of May. But, as I've always said; anything's possible. I just know when its out, one is coming my way. The wait will be worth it.

Some of ya'll may have seen this, but look at ThinkSecret's coverup.

http://www.thinksecret.com/news/050609macbook.html

So, we'll see how this goes - although I am no longer 'anticipating', if I am AppleInsider, I don't repeat of word of this until it happens. Better yet, until they have the unit itself in their hands.

one wonders what happened/happens to that rumor that said product has already been shipped to apple stores with "do not open until may 9" on them"

Another box, inside the original, read: "Do not open until May 16"
They spoke of the sayings and doings of their commander, the grand duke, and told stories of his kindness and irascibility.

I've seen that one a little while ago...
Great stuff!

BTW: Had that rumor ever been proven? (Well, it's a rumor, but...)

//While some reports have suggested that Apple's MacBook was due to arrive at times much earlier in the year, those reports are incorrect, sources have told AppleInsider. At no time did Apple ever anticipate launching an Intel version of its consumer notebook line before the month of April, those sources have said.//

gosh... its MAY now.... i guess anyone with an internet connection and the ability to check apples store could ALSO be an insider.... sources have said.

its easy to say you KNEW xmas wasnt due.... till the 25th dec!

And your point by quoting AppleInsider is?

As you may know AppleInsider has quite a good track record
and has (as far as I know) always said Intel MacBook/ iBook in the second quarter of 2006/ may-june 2006 time frame.
Also,
they nailed the iMac/MBP at MWSF06 introduction back in november 2005
while other sites predicted an Intel Mac mini DVR and iBook introduction.

We'll see if they also nailed their predictions for the forthcoming MacBook.

Calm down, AI is a respectable rumour site, widely known for
some respectable predictions in the past. AI is plenty fun in the
first place, and if you want to dig into (Apple related) tech discussion
it is fun too. Be positive, take it easy, life is short.

cheers

i think THAT is what i have trouble with...

its SO easy to say that now... IN MAY!

i dont care who the sources are or what website its posted on, it just seems to me that a child with an understanding of months of the year could work that one out.

no consumer note book out this year... its the month of May NOW... i could easily say apple wont be releaseing a note book before the end of april.

its all just hindsight!

i can safely say apple wont be going to mars any time the first week of May, same differance.

i like this website, i like some of the 'rumours' here its fun.

It's harder to say it in, say, februari?



Anyway AppleInsider expected it "early this spring"
and moved that expectation to "later this spring" and even june on april 4th,
to before june on april 7th.

It's harder to say if you don't have a 24/7 hotline with "those sources".

It's information about the reason why it takes longer than people expected, not an evil cover up.

If this is fake, it is very well done. Also, I like the way they included the way people might use it, showing some versatility in the computer. Very well done indeed.

As to the possibly fake Apple Store page, is Apple still featuring that Chris Suchorsky story as an RSS headline? I think the story was posted in late April, just before his movie premiered on IFC. It's possible the page was faked then and been on ice until now. Where did the image originate?

The "speed of life" tagline is a particularly nice touch.
