Aren't Tuesdays the set days for product updates?

I'm just thinking, in terms of DVD/CD release days, the industry standard is Tuesdays. This week the PowerMacs were updated on a Tuesday. Isn't it true that all product announcements in general come on Tuesdays? I hope I'm not coming off as an idiot, maybe I've spent too much time focusing on DVD/CD industries, but I always thought that Tuesday was the day.

Maybe someone has a list of every product update and what day it was.

I'm just curious because all these random days come out (like ThinkSecret, who has a great track record, saying Feb 3rd instead of Feb 4th). And then people were talking about how on any given day there's a 50% chance of an Apple update, and then others broke down the percentage for the entire year and so on and so on. I thought all these industry releases were on Tuesdays.

Take care all - Matt

I seem to remember Jaguar being released on a Saturday.

Jaguar was indeed a Saturday release, and Apple has done at least one hardware update to the powerbooks on a Monday. (667/800DVI version)

And iLife was scheduled for a Saturday as well.
