    I wish they wouldn't do that! It gives me goosebumps.



    I am setting myself up for a big disappointment on JAN 7. I keep saying "no G5 'till August... no G5 'till August..." and then Apples goes and does something like this. Sheesh.

    Whoa indeed.



    I almost believe they were hacked.



    Or maybe its their way of saying "Yes we said that the iPod was something but this time we mean it"

    Wow, this is hardcore geek-arousement...



    They will *have* to deliver... I think that no even the wildest rumors have a chance of coming true...



    Steve's quite a slut when he wants to capture our imaginations...

    Wow. I'm worried that they're over hyping (is that a word?) Well I guess I have to wait a week and see if I was right.

    That's really cruel. I hope they live up to the hype or there will be a riot.

    This is the most Apple has hyped an event. Moving the keynote forward a day, starting a countdown on their website, and saying that "This one is big. Even by our standards."



    Remember the thread a week ago in GD, where people said that they would like a hint from Apple before something big was announced? Looks like they got their wish.

    This is the most hype since the original iMac intro. Perhaps bigger. I can't believe they would hype it this much then not deliver.



    I can't wait for this baby!

    Well, since that banner has to be changed for tomorrow... Do you think they will be doing any hint dropping?



    6 Days till MacWorld... "Insert some hint" :eek:

    This is why it's hard not to expect G5 and G4 iMacs! Apple could have gotten Motorolla to deny clearly the G5 but instead "This one is big"! I'm sure we'll all be blown away by whatever Steve presents. Apple may not fulfill our whole wish list, but we'll probably be happy anyway.



    BTW - The Apple no interest (180 days) loan is good through January 8, 2002! I think the intent was to have it expire BEFORE the new products are announced, but the change in keynote date may not have been taken into account. I've signed up (for way too much) hoping to get the 0% on something I order after the keynote.



    BTWA - I called my local Apple store, and they will have the direct satellite feed on their big screen. I think one of the benefits of the brick & mortars is to be able to roll out new products after Steve presents them. The salesman said he expects to have new products to at least demo, but no promises.

    It would keep the hype going if they didn´t gave too much away.



    "6 Days till MacWorld... Its not an iMac"

    Heh that could actually be a great thing to write. "5 days to MacWorld ... AppleInsider Message Board will crash"



    That would really be like the second coming: Name all the sign leading up to it.



    "MS will go bankroupth"

    "The cities will be redesigned"

    Good idea.. have to call the Littleton store and see if they are too. I was just thinking of a couple of days off and a road trip to San Fran, but sanity sunk in. Now I'm really excited. Two more hours till they open.

    Anyone saved the .gifs of the OSX countdown? Those were clever little things...

    All I can say now is that I will have to watch this at 2am down here in Oz. Although Steve owes us big time down here. I was at Apple headquarters watching the last keynote, and man, some of us were ropeable by the end of it!! Not only did we get stuff-all in the Keynote, but we stayed up till 2 to see it!!



    As for this advertising....If Apple keep this sorta thing going, I think we'll be seeing psychiatrist/psychologist demand skyrocketing around the globe!! People will develop the neck and shoulder twitch and screaming whenever they hear someone mention "iMac" or "G5"



    Maybe there's a conspiracy between Apple and the International Medical Associations!!



    Hey......I'm trying to "Think Different"

    Damnit, that's interesting. Would they do this just for the LCD iMac?
