    Apple Computer on Friday scheduled a press event for May 1 with CEO Steve Jobs, sparking speculation that he will unveil new Macs or announce plans for retail stores.

    Thinner iBook, Apple retails stores? Hmm...

    thinner iBooks

    the iBook is heavy compared to the titanium g4

    let's shave a pound off the iBook but still keep it durable for young students and clumsy people

    No iMacs, tho...

    New iMacs can't *possibly* come at this event -- that's gotta be Macworld NY.

    As well, I don't think the Apple Stores are close enough to being ready to roll for them to be announced...

    I figure DVD Playback on Mac OS X, iBooks, speedbump to towers/cubes, maybe?......

    Los Angeles Mac Stores Shuddered last week

    Last week two stores which most of their business is macintosh closed. Both on Santa Monica Blvd near Beverly Glen, one was Compu America and the other I forgot the name of because they already took down their signs.

    But this must be a sign of a new apple store coming to the Los Angeles region.

    Although I am sad to see apple friendly stores close, but in reality they stunk. Beyond selling the mac's their service quite bluntly stunk. and their software selection stunk with even higher prices.

    so, I welcome a local Apple branded mac store with great selection. why? because sometimes I love mail order and sometimes I want to drive over and try out a program before buying.

    I think apple stores are going to be a good thing.

    definitely yes

    There will definitely be new iBooks out there soon, because Apple doesn't offer them in its online shop anymore ('temporarily unavailable').
