    Let me simply quote Finding Nemo's last line...

    I am VERY surprised they didn't even upload a special "Thank You" page on their Web site. :(

    Here's to Tuesday!

    Thats the thing. Nothing. Does that sound right? Just... nothing. It just doesn't seem right.

    Has Apple ever released products on the weekend? I wouldn't get too worked up about this so far.

    It would be so awesome if Apple updated their site at midnight to fool us all into thinking they weren't going to do anything for their anniversary. I am REALLY hoping... which is why I'm not going to bed for a couple hours. :)

    They never promised us anything about a media event on 1. april. Many people just expected it, and therefor became dissapointed. Just like people were dissapointed by the Mini and Hi-fi, just because they expected more, though these were really cool products. We can only bláme ourselves.:(

    The 20th anniversary Mac was a unique computer. It was released in spring 1997 - about a year after Apples 20th anniversary.

    Must agree, its a bit off of Apple to not take the Apple site down for a while - just to post an 'Apple is 30' or 'Thank You' message in big, black, bold Myriad.

    Very strange.

    I wasn't expecting MacBooks, Video iPods or anything like that until Tuesday..

    1) Its a weekend
    2) Apple LOVE their Tiesdays
    3) It was April fools day - people might not have taken it seriously

    Oh well I may be wrong, but if we don't get nothing Tuesday, or within the fortnight after.. then Apple are big party poopers!

    You realize they sold that thing for $10,000 and it only had a 603e processor. The 20th Anniversary Mac was everything that was wrong with Apple in those days.

    So I'd say that we get nothing for the 30th Anniversary and let Apple deal with getting the next batch of Intels hammered out instead.

    I'm sure we'll hear about a Keynote soon, in which we will hear about some "exciting new products" hopefully they will be better than last time....personally i think the 30th anniversary edition mac won't be a mac but an iPod....

    Guess we'll have to wait and see,

    And it was only released about one year after Apple's official 20th anniversary.

    For me, very low expectations always serves to keep disappointment at bay. On my shopping list is a computer, iPod, printer, selected software and furniture. I am patient and hope to start spending by end of May.

    BTW: Nice avatar of Bond.

    Don't worry, May and some nice new Apple products will both be arriving shortly.

    Thanks Deepdale! :)

    Something is bound to happen. They can't just let this go without any talk.

    I bet it's Intel iBooks. :D
