Reply 9 of 100 specialkbdc Posts: 36member January 2, 2002 2:07AM 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. Reply 9 of 100 joe o Posts: 32member January 2, 2002 2:07AM 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: Joe Reply 9 of 100 applenut Posts: 5,768member January 2, 2002 2:07AM shit. now I'm going to be up everynight at 3am waiting for the next damn thing. I thought it would just be more of the same "count on being blown away stuff" but this... this is.. big. Reply 9 of 100 enigma Posts: 44member January 2, 2002 2:07AM this is great - apple should do this more often... cause only they can create this much hype around something - AND actually deliver on it!

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. Reply 13 of 100 formerlurker Posts: 2,686member January 2, 2002 2:09AM Perhaps they even got the "Macworld Countdown" idea from the perennial thread that pops up here. Reply 16 of 100 sobelizzard Posts: 130member January 2, 2002 2:13AM 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 Reply 17 of 100 sobelizzard Posts: 130member January 2, 2002 2:14AM 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! Reply 17 of 100 weeeeeedash Posts: 59member January 2, 2002 2:14AM 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!!! Reply 19 of 100 neovirusnine Posts: 65member January 2, 2002 2:15AM So far i've seen rumors for:1. The obvious flat panel iMac2. The Powermac G5 with DDR3. Gigawire4. Tablet technology5. New iApps6. Various Apple branded iProducts such as a digital cameraI 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. Reply 19 of 100 apple.otaku Posts: 590member January 2, 2002 2:15AM 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. «12345» Sign In or Register to comment.
