    I agree and FINALLY can the 'G5 soon' folks PLEASE take a pill! My gut tells me they wont but think how nice it would be around here if they did.

    i think some people have been far too harsh in this thread, and you've really shown yourselves up. he was right, you were wrong...

    Ouch! time was dead on and I guess all of the people who slammed him are having a nice helping of humble pie. This board turns into personal attacks way too easily. I hope people will be a lot more open minded in the future.

    It's funny how you guys can lick the feces off Kormac's ass, but bust on a guy who doesn't claim to know too many details, rather just the release date.



    Oh, and he was right!

    Firstly, time, welcome to the boards. And what a welcome!



    Now you're going to have to deal with folks pestering you about upcoming hardware releases.



    Best of luck!

    To All:



    I just got up and saw that Apple has released new product. I take this time to thank all those who stood by me and backed me up.



    The head guy is never wrong.



    Thanks Again,

    time

    By 'head guy' do you mean? Steve Job's himself?!



    Please tell!

    HA HA HA HA, hey you self-proclaimed AI thought-police, I guess sometimes people ARE honest.



    psantora, corvette, murbot, EmAn, and M5884 should post some serious apologies to Time for their harshness and personal attacks.



    Kudos to Michael Gray for his classy apology. A lesson for all.

    I took this from post 13.



    I know many come on the thread and say "sorry I can not tell you where I get my information from, where I work, if my friend works for apple, if he works for an Apple reseller, wholesaler or the big one...I can't tell you because I signed a disclosure etc." Some people who have these reasons, as some see them as excuses, can be true, as with me. I would love to just be able to come out and say "hey, I work for Apple, F*** that disclosure form, this is what I know" but I can't do that. Again...Sorry.



    Again sorry, but I did give a lot of hints in that post.



    Thanks again,

    time

    from early post by time:

    You know, help a person, sell an iMac, customer support, sell a G4, answer phone calls, try to help a customer from getting upset because they are having trouble installing OS X....

    _________________________________________________



    cool...since he was right about the release date of the new PM, now time can help me if i have any problems updating to osX....g



    ps...my ex-step dad (family life is complicated isn't it sometimes) lives in pasadena...if you have any more info, perhaps you can leak it to him.... g

    Man, I just read this thread this morning.



    I'm stunned at how ignorant many of you were here. If I'd read the initial post on Saturday, I wouldn't have believed it either... but I sure as heck wouldn't call the guy every bad name in the book!



    Now, turns out he was right and 99% of you owe this guy an apology.



    And I thought the terrorists showed us that we all needed to be nicer to each other.

    I told Time to wait till today and tell everyone to kiss his hairy ass, he didn't tho

    I would also like to point out that when I decimate a supposed insider my track record is 100%.



    Kormac = bullshit. 0.000 batting average. CRAP! Steaming piles of it.



    Dorsal = probably true, but with a few degrees of seperation between his access and final product.



    Time = wait and see. Turns out he was right. What he proposed was verifiable in short order: no "maybe for next time" nonsense. What he stated he was right and limited to what he knew. He didn't try to build it up. So the reasonable thing to do was wait to see if it panned out. It did.



    However, I'd hardly blame those who suspected him. They've grown weary from months of Kormac's bullshit. Time didn't deserve to get yelled at, but after month's of ripe stinking dung, it remains amazing to me that some of you will rush to the defence of Kormac yet call for the head of any other potential source of rumor (real or invented). So the reasonable thing to do is blame Kormac for creating this atmosphere of suspicion and doubt. Death to the Korean infidel!

    Hope springs eternal, I suppose.



    But G5 hype aside (again -- don't expect it any time soon), the dual 1ghz model looks pretty sweet to me.



    Must keep finger away from the "buy" button...

    Hey Time (or is that Tim?) can you give us a hint about where you work?



    I'm guessing you are based somewhere like Mac Mart? or maybe you work at the printers where the boxes are made?



    Give us a clue!



    PS don't hesitate to let us know when the G5 is coming...

    Way to go, time. You just scored a sh*tload of points in my book.

    I wouldn't give time too much credit even though he was right.



    most managers of the apple stores would have known and I'm sure many more people in the retail chains as shipments are already in today
