Here's something interesting- I was signed up for a seminar on Tuesday morning, to be held at the Apple media center here in Santa Monica, CA.This is the same place that they host the sattelite boradcasts of the keynotes.Well, this morning I received notification that the seminar had been CANCELLED! It definitly wasn't due to lack of interest, as an earlier seminar was full, and this one filled up shortly after I registered.Could this mean they need the space for a big press announcement...?

Meeting starts tomorrow ( 5/14/02) at 9 AM PDT. No indication at website of a live Quicktime stream. Meeting to end about 12.00 so info should appear on the site soon after that.

Reply 9 of 35 addison Posts: 1,185member May 13, 2002 7:16PM Yes and SpyMac uses something called MST.Seriously, GMT is 6 hours ahead of New York, how far behind is PST? Reply 10 of 35 pbg4 dude Posts: 1,611member May 13, 2002 7:27PM PST (Pacific Standard Time) is 3 hours earlier than EST, so it would be GMT - 0900 until the conclusion of DST, then it would be GMT - 0800.MST is Mountain Standard Time, which is EST - 0200, or GMT - 0800 until conclusion of DST, then it will be GMT - 0700[ 05-13-2002: Message edited by: PBG4 Dude ]</p> Reply 11 of 35 max8319 Posts: 347member May 13, 2002 10:37PM what interests me is that the press conference is scheduled forTHREE HOURS!!!!!!1wtf are they gonna talk about for 3 hours?there are glimmers of hope Reply 12 of 35 undotwa Posts: 97member May 13, 2002 11:26PM Well these are my predictions for the keynote:Rackmounts: (duh)Dual 1 GHz G4s2 GB of 166 MHz DDRAM2x 72 GB Ultra SCSI RAIDDiscontinuing of the PowerMac Server line (seriously, they are practicly the same as the Power Mac workstations)iBook 12":800 MHz G3512 KB L2 Cache20 GB HD128 MB SDRAMDVD/CD-RWATI Radeon Mobility 16 MB$999iBook 14":800 MHz G3512 KB L2 Cache40 GB HD128 MB SDRAMDVD/CD-RWATI Radeon Mobility 16 MBHigher Resolution$1295Discontinuing the G3 iMac Range, eMacs available to consumers.$300 price cut on iMacs, Bet that's a bit much, but three hours???

They will need to be taken seriously and to do that they must incorporate a lot of robust feaurers including:-1. DDR2. Mutiple processors.3. Hot swap scussi drives with Raid.4. Dual power supplies.5. Dual NIC'sI suspect that in the short term these machines could easily exceed the performance of the current Powermac range.

IRC maybe? Reply 18 of 35 tompage Posts: 50member May 14, 2002 10:45AM No, it is now 16:42 UK time (which is on summer time and therefore at GMT+1- the UK is on GMT in the winter). In Europe it is now 17:43 (GMT+2). PST is 8 hours behind the UK, therefore the event will commence at 17:00 UK time or 18:00 European time. In any event, don't expect attendees to get out and put the info online until at least an hour after it has started, although if apple is quick off the mark they may update their own website around the start time of the event. Reply 19 of 35 belle Posts: 1,574member May 14, 2002 10:46AM It's just not that difficult. The vast majority of places are on daylight savings right now.It's currently around 8.45am in Santa Monica.
