Apple has a new buzzword, and it's not "revolutionary".

    I thought it was hilarious (after watching the rebroadcast of the keynote) that I have counted at least 5 instances of : (drumroll): kickass.

    :p

    SJ, Avie, and Phil all used it at least once. Well, paying homage to Cartman this is what I think of the new G5s and Panther:

    Kiickaaass!

    :D

    I thought it was "boom"

    I watched the keynote at work this morning... I had it quite loud so various others could watch and listen at the same time. Steve Jobs said "Boom" that often it had the group in laughter!

    Derek :D

    I was watching at summer school (I'm working as an assistant) before class started, but the kids started coming in early and so the teacher and I were constantly trying to turn down the volume whenever he said 'kickass'... heh.

    I thought boom was John Madden's word. Like, "Boom, tough actin' tinactin!"

    That being said, he's really old, so it will be Steve's soon enough.

    You forgot:

    You forgot to mention John "Ruby" Rubenstein... in the Power Mac G5 Introduction Video on Apple's website, they conclude the propoganda with Apple's newest unofficial slogan:

    "This is one KICK ASS machine."
