Apple slips, posts Tiger launch graphics on Apple.com two days early

Things just aren't going Apple's way this week. The latest company blunder took place around 2:30 eastern time today, when an employee inadvertently updated the main Apple.com web page with graphics planned for Friday's launch of Mac OS X 10.4 "Tiger."



Tiger is "In Stores Now," a graphic on Apple's main page read for few minutes on Wednesday. The page was reverted back to its current state after the company became aware of the mishap.







Judging by the images that appeared, Apple.com on Friday evening will return to its original layout (white background, and rounded preview graphics). A dynamic splash screen marked by a large "X" will alternately highlight some of Tiger's most anticipated features including Dashboard, Spotlight, iChat AV, Automator, QuickTiime 7 and Safari.



Over the past week, Apple has entered into a spat with a major book publisher over an unauthorized biography of company CEO Steve Jobs, seen Amazon.com leak the specs of new Power Mac models a day early, and watched catalog resellers violate an embargo on pre-mature shipments of Tiger to customers.

    This is probably more of a macrumors.com thing.

    No big deal, just change your Mac's date/time to Friday and you too can see that Tiger is now available

    Karma? What goes around comes around? Do unto others as you would have them do unto you? You reap what you sow?



    Just a guess.

    While perhaps not a "significant" bump, it is important for Apple to keep releasing updates to the PowerMac. And if you had to buy one anyway, its nice to know that you will get 400 extra MHz worth of processing power...

    Karma or the Law of Causality isn't the same as you reap what you sow, nor is it the Christian mantra of do unto others as you would have them do unto you.



    Karma reminds one to be mindful of potential causalities when one takes actions in life, no more no less.



    The idea that if you treat others with some level of royalty as you wish to be treated is servitude and wreaks of ignorance; it will be a cold day indeed by the time one gets treated by what they perceive to be just. Follow your dreams live your purpose in life and all rights itself.



    Stop living up to others views on right and wrong for you and life becomes a joy.



    Steve Jobs looks to be enjoying his life to the fullest--just a guess.
