You would have seen a copy of the invitation on the MR homepage by now if such an event existed.

Is anyone thinking new imacs will come out tomorrow.... not a chance i mean i wish theyd release them today for all i care i want an imac as much as anyone here. But if there was going to be such event, we would hear something and if the imac were to be release tomorrow i think we would see something. So far nothing. the rumors sites are too busy over reporting about the iphone. So no new imacs tomorrow sadly.

I am wondering the same thing to. It seems that the few rumors about an August 7th even were from end of June through mid July. There hasn't been any other mention since then.

Either way, I hope that the new iMac is out in time for September 25th's release of the new Wow expansion. Hopefully the 2012's have decent GPUs on the smaller screen size models, as well as decent SSD configurations - all standard - as I would love to pick one up right from the local Apple Store whenever the hell it's released! But wtih all this waiting, whats another week for shipping?

What is the meaning of this? Is it Apple related? I thought the coloration and typeface looked similar to the 2012 WWDC ads.

Fascinating. A Google for 08.13.12 and 13.08.12 comes up with nothing interesting. Agree that it resembles Apple's standard font.

If this is some kind of viral marketing thing, there should be one of these in most major cities.

apple never do such a marketing like that.
if imacs come out tomorrow it would be without warning. Could happen, even if there´s no event. But could just as well come out any other day as well, so no reason to get worked up over it, noone has any clue. Only thing we know the closer we get to october the bigger chance for an imac update.

I'm not sure whom I would ask. The buildings behind it are rented by several different tenants, private and business. And I don't know where their management offices are, or who even owns the billboard.

After the year I've had, I'm not going to get my hopes up about any potential release dates. Too many disappointments so far. But I would love to be proved wrong.

I can't find anything about this billboard. My guess is that maybe it's related to some kind of end-of-world Mayan prophecy.

I hope it will be released tomorrow, but I doubt it.

Meny rumors says october realese. Therefore I beleave Apple will do a october 2010 replika and realese iLife 12 (it's time for an update) and iMac's.

If this is true than it could mean that the Sept 12th event is for iMacs.

I saw many iPhone rumors for the Aug 7th, but they dried up mid July as everyone is now speculating Sep 12th.

Either way, every day I keep thinking about pulling the trigger on the higher 21.5" with an SSD BTO. But when I see the price and then think of what performance the alleged 2012 will give me at the same price, I wait.

Oh first world problems.

we need to remember that they don't need to organise special event for iMac, it can be silent update.
