AppleInsider claims (http://www.appleinsider.com/news.php?id=214) tomorrow may bring more information - presumably about Panther.

so many times people claim to know something on these "tuesdays", I waited for about 4 months of "next tuesdays" for the 15" AlBook. I'll believe it when I see it.

Although, I am hoping about this one!

I like to hear this! I'm looking forward to the release of Panther (so I can get a PowerMac G5 with it).

The AI article is weird - it talks extensively about Panther, but at the beginning specifically states that Apple will lift an "embargo securing details of a new product". Then it merely compares pricing to Panther, not saying it is Panther.

Like I said, weird.

They said it's priced like Panther and it's a new product. It could be Panther, or it could be something else.

We're expecting iTunes for Windows, as stockscalper points out, but I don't think they'll charge $129 for that.

And dreamindirector, tomorrow is Wednesday, not Tuesday.

And as for other products, $129 is too low a price for the Tablet or the G5 Cube :-)

That article was posted yesterday, so where is this surprise? I've never actually been in the office when something is released, Ive never been sitting at my desk, flipping from macrumors to apple and back.. to see when the update come. Is it usually at a certain time (pacific?) or what.. its 10am east coast, and I'm not seeing anything. We might get news of an upcoming in-store event... what time do these site updates usually appear?

The article specifically says Tuesday morning, not tomorrow morning. However, it's already 10:30 EDT and nothing is showing up yet, so maybe it will be Wednesday. Either way, if Panther is indeed coming sometime around October 30th, you'd think Apple would be making an announcement here very soon so no worries. Looks like Panther is definitely going to be worth the wait. :)

Yea, but 10am EST is only 7am Pacific time, not really morning there yet.

Panther would be a new product. I read the article and it's very obvious to me they think the new product is Panther. Not sure where the confusion or mystery for some is coming from.

Maybe they will announce that Panther will be released soon, and that purchasers of new computers from this point on will get the coupon for free Panther.

maybe they have absolutely no idea what they are talking about.

It must be an Apple-branded PDA. I'm sure of it.

Yes, it's cheaper than the iPod. Don't argue with me here, dammit! :D

And the wait begins... when I got into the office this morning the first thing I did was launch into IE to see if indeed Panther was out... But I hate when the page starts to load and the first piece of the graphic is "Introducing" and you get all excited and an instant later mumble "Stupid powerbooks."
