Posted:
in Future Apple Hardware edited January 2014
Apple won't be in Boston Macworld. Some rumors say, that Apple hasn't confirmed New York Macworld appearance.



When and where Apple will announce new hardware then?

    On Tuesdays. There are 52 of them every year.

    Well put. I don't believe anything anyone has to say until I see it on apple.com

    I was thinking the same thing...maybe because Monday is the first business day of the week and the Xserve kind of falls under that...enterprise and all...

    Apple is messing with us. Just when people think they know what is going to happen, we get thrown for a loop. Hopefully this game that Apple is playing will work out favorably for the 970 release.

    Because they've got so much good stuff to give us that they're now going to be doing it twice a week, every week!



    Or perhaps Steve is reading and wants to keep us on out toes, so we don't get complacent about Mondays?

    You think that they'll announce it on a Monday too, so we get it a whole day earlier!? <img src="graemlins/lol.gif" border="0" alt="[Laughing]" />

    Just like the G5... there is no 970... (or so they would have us believe....)

    I can't believe Apple would release the 970 on a Tuesday without making a big marketing stink over it. This chip is the perfect processor improvement over the G4 to be released at a macworld.



    Of course, if someday in the near future I logged onto Apple.com and saw PPC970 powermacs for sale, I wouldn't complain...

    Based on current trends, you have a 1 in 47 chance of being right.

    When I said work out favorably for the release of the 970, I'm taking about earlier than expected. Current speculation says third quarter, but who's to say it won't be later. Who's to say it won't be earlier. I'm just hoping it will be earlier, and it's possible. But don't expect to get clues from Apple. And anything you read on MacOSRumors, or MacWhispers, or SpyMac, or any other rumor mills is subject to an extremely high degree of skepticism.



    What I'm talking about the idea that Apple isn't following the predictions. People can rumor and predict release dates all that they want, but recently, a staggering majority haved turned out to be wrong.



    With all these surprises (whether or not they are pleasent), I am continuously finding it a waste of time to read rumors and speculation.



    Rumors don't give me hope or expectation anymore. Apple's unpredictablitity as of late does.

    Apple is trying to avoid the anticipation bubble that comes with each Macworld. Apparently, their sales experience a significant drop in the weeks approaching Macworld.



    Now, say what you like about Apple, but the fact that their customers are so attuned to their new product announcements that it actually hurts sales is a pretty damn amazing achievement.



    On the other hand, they want to keep people guessing and keep sales consistant (reducing inventory problems). So they aren't announcing new products at Macworld anymore.



    I don't know how long it will take to break the 'anticipation' tendency, or if it's even possible. But I guess that it's good for Apple.

    I think that the Powermac 970 release will actually be big enough for apple to have a Flash cover! Has anyone noticed the obvious absence of Flash on Apple's site? The ONE TIME that Apple used any animation on their site was with the Flatpanel iMac release. And that was up for only 2 days. It would be extremely suspenseful to have a flash animation on the day of the PM 970 release, that says like" Introducing an innovation in desktop computing" then that fades out, and you see "a point in the evolution of the Macintosh computer" and then after that you finally see the beuatiful 970, swathed in xServe-esque stainless steel. Yeah. That would be cool.

    Actually that's not true. They used to have quicktime movies of their various products on their home page. Doing just what you mentioned - fading in and out.

    "used to" is the key word there, my friend. Or rather 2 words. But Apple could do so much with flash. How bout an "iPod interactive test drive", like Palm has of their handhelds on the Palm site? That would sell 'em.
