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 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.

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

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

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.

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

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....
