    when was the last time Apple placed "an old hardware, software or promo" back to the centerpiece of its website?

    Me too. To make it even worse, my friend wouldn't scroll up when I asked him too, which got my hopes up even more. How rude!

    As someone above pointed out, it's a little odd when Apple puts a promo for somethign OLD up there. Is it an attempt to clear out old units prior to the, theoretical and rumored new G5 release, or a sign of something to come... or both?

    My homepage is set to the Apple site, but the Canadian one. I'm not sure why that makes sense because it is there so I can see if something new is out, and usually the newer products are only on the main page and eventually make their way to the (CDN) page.

    Oh, the iPod commercial is on... don't you just love when you see an Apple commercial? lol

    They [Apple] also should lower the prices to get more people to buy more G5's.

    The powermac is a professional machine... as such, it is similarly priced to Pro PC workstations... Sure its a lot of money.. but that's when you compare it to a HP or Dell... which is a laughable comparison.

    I also noticed they updated the iPod page has a new person, and the iPod firmware has been moved up.

    Never. But I have seen promos on the website the night before updates like this - like teasers without really saying much.

    They probably assumed no one would notice becuase the damn quotes rotate too fast!!
