i think apple will release 970 powermac's as soon as they can. if they are ready for wwdc, then they will be released at wwdc, or later, if they not ready (or not ready in the quantity to satisfy demand)

For the new PowerMac 970s they'd need to redo the OS, right? Makes perfect sense to me....

Also, look forward to paying for Panther if they're making such a big deal about it. And to change the date of a conference, that was probably booked quite a while ago has huge implications. Its not something you do lightly - especially since many people have to change their airline and hotel reservations.

Panther/970

Panther could have been demoed on the original date. This is just another tell-tale sign that Apple is preparing a Panther/970 co-release. The only question left in my mind is weather or not developers will be under NDA to see pre-release 970 machines, or weather they will actually announce 970 based macs.

WWDC's date was changed quite a while ago. I forget the reasons, but I do remember reading about it a month or more ago.

I think it had something to do with them killing off QuickTime Live! and incorporating that into this year's WWDC.

I wouldn't count on seeing any PPC 970 Macs show, unless it's behind closed doors to a select few. For something this big, I'm pretty sure Apple will hold their own huge Apple Event (similar to the iPod release) or wait till they're at a MacWorld.

Yup, seems big. Hopefully its not because steve had a prior engagement on the original day

They could announced/previewed at WWDC, but in typical Apple fashion, it may be Aug or Sept before they're available to ship.

Sounds like a valid statement to me.

I don´t see right now, HOW the date has changed. Has the event been delayed? It could also be a software-only thing, since a complete version of Panther to be demoed would be nice, and would be embarrassing to show an alpha version or whatever.

Okay, such a move is not done light-hearted. It will have its reasons. Could it be the new iPod? This device thingy with the myterious enclosures mentioned on Page2 ?

Hmmm!!

That postcard IS ugly, though.

I don't think they'd have to redo the OS to get it working on a PPC 970, but it would be better if they made some changes to it took advantage of the 970's features.

I wonder what some of the new features will be?

iTunes Rendezvous support (we've been waiting...)

A better DVD player

a final version of safari

Oh the possibilities... I guess we'll just have to wait...

I know that windows will have a very hard time keeping up at the rate Apple's going... They won't have anything until 2005, or maybe 2004, if they're lucky.

sorry, i got a dumb question

This is probably a REALLY dumb question, but I would like to know the answer. PLEASE don't bash me for it, but what is the PPC 970? is it a new processor or something?

*slap*


Do a search, and read the latest three topics with it in the title, and you will know everything about it. Hint: A new CPU from IBM...

And please don´t ask now about "CPU" or "IBM"... the consequences would be gruesome!

It sucks just as much for those of us who made our reservations THIS WEEK.

Though it looks like they reserve a block of rooms at the hotel and give them the guest list later. People with plane tickets are going to be affected most.

BTW, Is Geekfest still targeted for June 13-15?

luckily most airlines have instituted policies whereby us travellers can change our tickets—no fuss, no muss—due to the security issues we may face as a result of the american incursion into iraq.

Are they going to start selling 10.3 in June, do you think? Or are they going to give us another countdown to the actual release date?

Well, the press release states that they rescheduled in order to provide developers with a more complete preview release of the next version of Mac® OS X, code named “Panther.”

If developers are leaving (on June 27th) with a preview release, they won't be selling the final version immediately.

You won't have to pay for Panther. It will be included in your brand new PowerMac PPC970.

pay for what you get....

I'm just wondering what new features there are going to be. I mean, I don't mind paying for an update as long as there are large leaps and bounds in the features of the OS. I haven't heard much discussion on what's coming our way. Probably more bluetooth support, rendezvous support (or iTunes), and now that I think about it, I dont know what else....

does anyone know what will come with this major update in June? (by the time we get it, it'll be a midnight party in September at the Apple store...)
