    Holy Crap. It just occured to me. if this is beyond the rumor sites. way beyond in fact than we HAVE to be getting a G5. rumor sites are reporting that. if its beyond that it has to be true.

    this is insane

    I seriously think that they might be playing with the people on the board - considering most here would be the most die hard of al Apple consumers.

    They have a trick up their sleeves and they are going to enjoy making us, the most jaded of all Apple consumers, lose our minds.

    Well, Now we're getting somewhere!!! Apple never acknowledges rumor sites, let alone makes comments about them. This is about as big as it gets... :eek:

    this is great - apple should do this more often... cause only they can create this much hype around something - AND actually deliver on it!

    ONLY time I remember them (him) doing it was Seybold SF 99 when SJ unveiled the PowerMac G4.

    He said something like, "rumor sites say we won't deliver these till 2000. guess what, we are announcing them TODAY"

    What!? Not a trickle from any sources? No hints? No momentary flashes of insanity from anyone?

    So should we assume it is not something that's been discussed on these boards, like the G5? I take this to mean we're off base.

    Of course, I've been underestimating Apple up until now.

    Perhaps they even got the "Macworld Countdown" idea from the perennial thread that pops up here.

    i suddenly have the eerie feeling that we are actually *being watched*..... like, its as if we're gonna post something, and tomorrow it will be incorporated into the message... seriously, we should try to mold tomorrow's message... see how far we can go with it

    C'mon Steve, i DARE you (double dare you ) to drop a codename in tomorrow's tease... even if its something we've never discussed here... let's hear it!

    This is great, Apple is great. I've been waiting to see what the new text would be, never would've guessed!!!

    This is gonna be Apple's biggest show ever.

    They seem to be telling us this is it!!!

    So far i've seen rumors for:

    1. The obvious flat panel iMac

    2. The Powermac G5 with DDR

    3. Gigawire

    4. Tablet technology

    5. New iApps

    6. Various Apple branded iProducts such as a digital camera

    I know there are more but my heart is pumping too much blood to my brain; it can't function properly.

    Don't forget the site says "beyond" so we obviously aren't thinking big enough.

    I bet Steve is surfing these boards in hysterical laughter reading all of this right now.

    This is most unusual. Its a first, I'll tell you that. Of course, there is the possibility that the person responsible for these taglines is in big trouble. I'm thinking of going to my local Apple Store to watch the broadcast.
