Told you guys, man, I don't have Dashboard. I had Tiger illegal copy for a year, then reinstall a few months ago did not go well. So reverted to original iBook G4 10.3, which, if you recall, has no Dashboard. So here we are and I am typing this on a craptacular Pentium4-M* 2ghz 512mb ram WindozeXP2pro. Widgets? Yahoo's my only choice

*My AMD64 Venice OC'ed 2.16ghz 1GB RAM 6600GT 550mhz OC'ed is in a closet a few thousand miles away.

Where would our lives be without looking forward to the next Apple thing, hanging off every rumour or press-release or keynote or "leaked" documents or patent forms or photoshopped mockup pr0n

I supposed we could be out having a real life, but hey, I had dinner and drinks with friends tonight so I earned a geeky weekend.

Also if I go for a run or swim I earn my nerding-out infront of the laptop time for a particular day 8)

Oh, also, once you get the whole losing-your-virginity thing out of the way, one can return to normal geeking out Ummm.... okay, yeah..... no offense to any existing virgins out there. It's all cool man, sex, no sex, guys, girls, whatever. You will always have your Mac at the end of the day. Thus we worship that which gives us peace and security. Except for when there are kernel panics. Heh. Please don't take my ramblings seriously

So... why are you counting down to a Monday instead of a Tuesday? Does it have to do with that photography expo?
post #16 of 112
Oh yeah...RL totally sucks.
I had one of my non-hostile forces venture out there, and he never was the same...*sniff*..again...
I sign this non-existant contract to spending atleast 2/3 of my day in front of a screen.

Please see...

"MacShrine and MacOSXRumors expect the MacBook Pro to be updated at Apple's September 25th event preceding Photokina. AppleInsider is unsure whether the updated MacBook will be unveiled at that event or be held off to ensure adequate supply of Intel's Core 2 Duo Merom chip."

25th is a Monday. Photokina starts on 26th, Tuesday. We still have no info AFAIK on the TIME of the UK announcement. Let's assume it's 10am for now. Apple has special announcement re: aperture and so on eg. MacBookPro Merom, then 26th the fair starts.

After the UK announcement there'll be time for the American media to pick up on it as day breaks on the East Coast.

A departure from the Tuesday am announcements but as the invite says, they wanna start Photokina a little early this year. 8)

Ah. I didn't realize the UK announcement came before Photokina. Thanks.

There was just an announcement! What the fuck are they going to announce now? bugfixes in iTunes 7?

WTF? Here's the invite image, it dissapeared from the thread for a while:



So the current guesses are new Aperture and MacBookPros. I do wish I get the PC iTunes 7 update sometime bloody soon!!! CoverFlow's messed up bad. And gapless playback is a bit screwy.

2Days 8Hours. Boy the wait is already killing me now. If it's just "Oh look, new Aperture, okay thanks for playing..." I'll go out and pop a cap in someone's ass.

Actually, maybe new CinemaDisplays? \

It's wonderful to build totally unrealistic expectations.

13" MacBook Pros on Monday!

Hey, that's not tooo unrealistic. 13" wide MacBookPro glossy screen. Very possible.
1Day 6Hours to go.

I actually don't think it's very possible. With the pricing that Apple seems to always follow, a 13" MacBook Pro would have to be between $1499 (Highest MacBook) and $1999 (Lowest MacBook Pro). It's my opinion that they covered that price point with the high-end MacBook. I'm sorry if I'm taking a piss on someone's dream, but I don't think that there will be a 13" MacBook Pro. New MacBook Pros, maybe, I don't really know.

USA-ians, East Coast peoples will get the news just nicely as they wake up. West Coast peoples will have to either wake up early, or something. However, given we don't know when exactly the announcement time is AFAIK (and nobody has given a time anywhere) looks like Europe and USA will have to wait through Monday 25Sep 12pm along their respective timezones to see what materializes. I can stay up until Monday 25Sep 10+pm Australian EST (London 1+pm) max waiting for news... Hmmm

Oh no, I totally think a 12" MacBook Pro is reasonable. It'll be interesting to see what really turns out from this event.

Time is relative. Only you can answer your question.

Just go to http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock

This is what the world agrees to be the time NOW. Other people think of time as a finite quality, a veil over the unity with the Supreme Divine, a creation to buffer us from full streamline entry into the Universal Conciousness of Love. 8)
