Steve came on the stage.

"We don't have not much time today. We have so many thing to announce that I will extend the time to two and half hour or more. If you don't have time you can leave now."

1) New iMac with Flat screen CRT 17 inch iMac with G4 chip. It is replacement for school and lower price market.

- Everybody liked but not satisfied.

2) New iMac with 15 inch wide TFT-LCD iMac

with G4. But it has big suprise!

- It has Raycer chip bult in! : FAST OS X GUI and real Fast 3D for GAME!

- It has Domino chip built-in: HDTV capable, MP3 encode & Decode, MPEG 4 Encode & Decode!

- and it has Gigawire with Airport II built in !: Now it is the real Digital Hub !

    I think it was Fun project for steve to have Apple made Audio for his trip between Pixar & Apple.

    Also. It could be a test system for Market research. :confused:

    Let's see this way.

    Steve: We will make this great product i**** v2. But it will be little more expensive than what you marketing guy think ! I don't want to see cube situation again !

    Marketing Man 1: Well. I have a idea !.

    Steve: say so !

    Marketing Man 1: Why don't we test the market first ?

    Steve: How ?

    Marketing Man 1:Since we need this and this component to build this thing, we need to buy great number of the part to reduce the overall cost.

    Steve: And ?

    Marketing Man 1:Let's make MP3 player with this part and put a high price on it to test the Market. If many people buy it with certain price than we can check the price structure and also we can reduce the overall manufacturing cost since More people buy MP3 than Mac!

    ( oops. ) <img src="graemlins/bugeye.gif" border="0" alt="[Skeptical]" />

    Steve:If you did not come up with good idea, I should FIRE you. But I like your idea. Since my walkman is so outdated , I need my own MP3 with Apple logo on it. Shall we call it iMusic?

    Marketing Man 2: No since we can transform it to i**** v2, we need not to contain it as Music Device. We need another name!

    Steve: One more shouting, you might be fired!.

    Well we need Unisex name which Nobody can guess what it does contain, I think I can call it "iPod". What you guys are think?

    Marketing Man 1 &2: It is wonderful name! ( I don't want to be fired ! )

    Steve: Than do it !


    I think this is the story.

    Two things going for Kormac77:

    1.) He post(ed) early. Kormac76 always posted about the same time.

    2.) He always edited his post almost immediately. Kormac76 had a habit of doing this, too.

    But editing what? I say to make his native-tongue ENGLISH sound less native.

    So, my radiological detection device is pointing to the positive.

    Sounds a lot like the old kormac, from pidgin English right down to the staggering of posts ("part 2 later") but so what, the whole i**** just got boring last time.

    Always glad to see a Kormac post. So the i**** v2 is soon to arrive? Do you have any more recent info on it? Processor? OS? HWR? Size?

    Hi Kormac, (if indeed it really is you)... It is good to see you posting on the boards again. I for one am hoping that your ideas are spot on this time around...

    Are you hinting that the i**** v.2 will have many of the same parts (e.g. 5gb Hard drive) as the iPod? If so, it seems that the i***2 would be enhanced by what, a larger screen? A decent chip?

    Does any of this have to do with the firewire port on the iPod? Could the iPod connect to v2 to give it the HD it needs (and with which it is not sold?)

    By the way, Kormac, just for my peace of mind, If you recall us chatting around the time of MacWorld NY 2000, we had chatted about doing something together, but never managed to meet up at the expo.

    You can now send me a private message (I think) on these boards, or just mention it in a post, letting me know you remember, and thereby verifying that it is indeed you, for we have had our share of imposters around here, as you can probably imagine.

    Keep posting!

    Also, what do you know about Gigawire? Is it Firewire2? Is it wireless Firewire?

    I wonder how many times people have to get spoofed before they stop believing every joker who either A) says he knows something secret or B) pretends to be somebody from the old AI?

    Kormac76 was truly full of shit. He knew nothing. And if you are he, you know nothing aswell. Anyone can talk in vague hypothetical terms, pillage a few tech developmentsw from other comapnies in the industry and pass it off as rumor. Till the day you die I will keep telling people that you DID NOT predict the GOOD BETTER BEST iMacs. According to you they were to have LCD screens for nearly the past two years already. If you are the original Kormac either post something real or just shut up. If you're just an imitator... Have a nice day.

    You're just jealous because his imagination is better than yours.

    Lighten up. This is supposed to be fun.
