In today's San Francisco Chronicle, they mention Melanie Craft, Larry Ellison's wife (Ellison is SJ's buddy) has a 12" powerbook g5.



Here's the link and the quote.



Chron Article





Quote:

At the urging of her guests, she pulls "Man Trouble'' out of her Hermes Kelly bag (she uses a larger Birkin bag when carrying her Mac G5 12-inch laptop computer) and reads a chapter.



Guess they will be out sooner than we think!

    Typo, no doubt it's a typo. They probably have working prototypes, but they wouldn't let those outside of the walls of Apple's HQ.

    More than that, she must also have a Mac Desktop based on Photo #5 showing off a nice Apple monitor and keyboard. Nice to be rich.

    Wow she's 34 and he's 59. When he was 27 (my age) she was only 2 years old.



    Kinda sick when you think of it that way.

    Apparently she has a powermac g5 to match her "powerbook g5," according to the article.

    And Steve was the photographer at the wedding. He never does stuff like that for any of us.

    Being the sad person that I am, I emailed the author of that article and asked her if it was a typographical error. We'll see if she responds....

    That's not too bad when they are compared with Celine Dion and her husband....the age gap between the two is like 33 years

    Being rich isn't as nice as you'd think. She can't even put vanity plates on her Mercedes because of security concerns.

    Well thay have to have some people actually use some of the pre production units before the public does.



    Isnt it any wonder that the ulimate product testing group is part of SJ's inner circle.



    My bet is its a typo?, but its sometimes healthy to be cynical?.



    My 2 cents.

    Jeez, ease up on the surgery, woman. She has that permanent "surprised deer caught in the highbeems" look to her, which is sad because she'd probably be quite cute and attractive if she didn't have such an artifical, robotic look to her.







    Same goes for nearly every example I've seen over the years, Joan Rivers being the top offender.

    Could be a typo and could be real. Since his best man was Steve Jobs, he could of lent them a prototype to her and told her to keep it seceret. Guess who is now mad at her. Or he could of done it on purpose to let the public know that the powerbook G5 is on the way and be here soon. But I'm pretty sure that is a typo.

    Considering that the Kelly bag costs more than those Macs put together, I suppose you might say that it's nice.

    Did you get a response yet? It's gotta be a typo, but I can hope, can't I?

    Don't they have people on staff who exist solely to check for this kind of stuff...especially there in the Bay Area, at a major newspaper, in a story dealing with tech and computers?



    Odd.



    Would be like the main Detroit paper screwing up a story concerning Ford (hey, a little sideways car analogy slipped in all cool like!).



    Either way, it's a boo-boo. Either lazy fact-checking or another mind-blowing instance of premature specification. Steve's going to have a stroke before it's all over.



    Poor guy can't keep ANYTHING under wraps, can he?
