    You don't say? Could it be...maybe I'm on PST and not EST?

    just image apple releases new iMac and Power Mac G5 now....then at keynote speech SJ just stands up on stage silently for about 2 hours while the audience claps wildly and cheers and throws room keys and underwear...then, 1 hour and 55 minutes into the applause....SJ holds up his hands for quiet and say, "Oh, and one more thing......" as the curtain opens and shows...........(removed at the demand of Apple Legal)



    ROFL! The best part is where Steve throws his hands up like Nixon and says Oh and one more thing. I love it. <img src="graemlins/smokin.gif" border="0" alt="[Chilling]" />

    I'm confused do you actually mean a sign that says: "removed at the demand of Apple legal" or are you just not telling us what will be there? I personally would think it would be funnier if they did the former...

    Maybe I'm doing the math wrong, but your clock looks like its 3 hours off. Total hours left should be the same regardless of where you are in the world, right? I was just looking for a reason as to why it might be off.

    I'm pushing this to the top so we don't get completely bogged down by locked threads.

    Revolution by Apple has always been I/O - CD-ROM, USB, FW, Airport, SuperDrive. This time round, portable FireWire controller gets my money.

    Since this MWSF is really being hyped by Apple, I don't see how it could not be about the G5. Assuming that the rumored specs are correct (spec/floating performance approx. 3X the P4 at the same clock speed), and since Apple is mainly a computer company, then it seems to me that having a brand new processer 3X as powerful as your competitor would warrent this magnitude of hype.

    Does GoLive Requirements Eliminate G5?

    The pre-announced GoLive system requirements say you need a G3 or a G4 to run it. No mention of a G5. Could this mean that - given the embargo - that G5's will NOT be announced at MWSF?

    Do you think Adobe would be stupid enough to pull an ATI?

    The Adope page wasn´t meant for publishing (hehe) so either they don´t know or Apple doesn´t have a G5 for us.



    &lt;conspiration mode&gt;or Apple had Adobe leak that paper to downplay the possibility of a G5 to surprise us all&lt;/conspiration mode&gt;

    Or maybe this means that G5's will ship with 10.2....

    If Apple releases a new mac that does what the Macintosh and iMac did for their sales then this kind of hype is reasonable.
