Ok, just a little excited here?

Don't get your hopes up too much - there are a ton of things that could be presented - but it not being a Jobs keynote I think its going to be minor. I'd like to be surprised though....

I know DukeStreet, but this is the result of too much expectation and coffee :D We shall see what will they come up with today!

Astray: I know man, you beat me up! And you are right on one thing, its not who posts first, but the sharing of the excitement that a Store update brings to all of us. ;)

What gets me, is that before i got a mac a few months ago, i would never have gotten this excited by a web store going down. It really is Applemania, or the Cult of the Forbidden fruit or something.

why is it that only the us and uk stores are down?

I completly agree with you, specially with the Cult of the Forbidden Fruit! That could be our Clan name on WarCraft 3! hehehehhe :D

But seriously, every single apple thing i own, is a object of desire! Even the old manuals of my SE/30. :D

Apple Store US is down gentlemen. As is the swedish, norwegian, finnish, german and french stores. Hold on to your hats!

How long until Joswiak starts?

I'm hoping for new keyboard and mouse for G5, but after the ad showed the old ones, I'm not holding my breath.

It has to be something new. This isn't just coincidental. It can't be.

Quite a few are down, Italy, Germany and France. Japan is still up, i havent bothered checking all the sites.

Do they shutdown the store if they are adding a non-apple peoduct to the store or something very minor like that?

MattG
Jul 16, 2003, 07:29 AM
I hope it's new 'books!!!!!

God this is so pathetic--I'm sitting here at work, refreshing my browser that's open to the Apple page over and over, hoping something new will come up :)

you know, i've spent the past week or two saying there was no reason to believe that we'd see anything noteworthy today, but now i'm contemplating calling in sick and going down to the javits center just to hang around outside... you know, just in case.

astray, you're right, this must be a cult!

A couple months? Come on, what about WWDC just last month when the G5s came out - or were you sleeping through that? It was madness around here.

Hopefully the servers handle the influx of members coming in to find out what happened....

You can probably stop that for a while. The Joswiak presentation doesn't start until 9:30 EST - so that's about an hour away. They won't update the store till he talks and probably not until he's finished.

You'd be better off writing a little script that would automatically update the page and tell you if something new was available by comparing strings in the page code that's loaded. Shouldn't take you more than an hour to find something online that you could mod to work.....;)

Good luck,

D

I was doing that every 20 seconds b4 the US store went down, then i realised that i was hammering their site, and decided id rather not risk being banned.

Ya'll are nuts, there ain't going to be any updates today.

<just saying that because last time I said they weren't going to announce the G5 at the WWDC last month, they DID :D )

the thing that says"the premiere of three great deals". but dont give up yet because the keynote hasnt started yet.

Bizarre, 2 seconds ago they removed the large G5 pic and put this rebate offer up, now its gone and the g5 image is back. Anywho, see you all next time the store goes down ;).

edit: nevermind, its back to the rebate pic, i guess the other image was cached or something.

okay... i had really high expectations for WWDC, but i was just dreaming anyway. and now it looks like i just went and got all excited again. :(

although i guess that there is the possibility of two Apple Store updates in one day.;) :)

Mr. Anderson
Jul 16, 2003, 07:48 AM
Very cool stuff - I wonder how much it differs from the new audio tools in FCP.....any one have any thoughts on that? Its only 299, so it might just be what you get in FCP....made as a stand alone app

i don't get it? what has changed in the pic that you posted? the only difference i can spot is where it shows a 12" PowerBook in your pic there's a 17" on the Apple page now.


anyway, Soundtrack looks good. should be sweet!! :D

If you watch the vido on soundtrack, it says its included with FCP

This is what I see now - I'm wondering why there's a difference and was it just an interim page - weird....
