    A couple days ago, some news was posted on the web about Apple doing a new site redesign. Although it came from spymac.com, whose history is shaky, I was looking @ the apple.co.jp site today and noticed something very interesting...

    Go to www.apple.co.jp and click on the "hot news" button. Then you will see iPhoto like buttons for each headline. Also pay a visit to www.apple.co.jp/support/ , there they have a very very different support page, and it's not one of the redesigns available on the U.S. apple site.

    Hum... Interesting...;)

    i dont think the support page is an update - rather i think that it is too hard to create japanese menus - like on the english site...

    just a thought...

    Anyone else think that the Apple Store page needs a re-design besides me? It is SO hard to find things, unless it's a new system, like, the catagories just don't fit, for instance, try to find a graphics card, where would you look? I think it's ok, but the previous one I thought was better.

    The text on the Japanese site makes me dizzy (because my computer can't display the characters proprerly.

    The support site (US) was once better, like when you wanted to download something it was easy just to look through the alphabetic index of software (I wish apple would bring that back) and also looking for computer discriptions isn't as easy as it was.

    The apple support page (US) (redesign 5). Link http://www.info.apple.com/new/site5/ looks almost exactly like the Japenese support page.

    Everyone should take a look at www.apple.ru. At the bottom of the page you have an interesting toolbar, plus some interesting site features (pricing, older models etc.)

    How many different apple sites are there? I just went and started putting two letter country names in and got a few, but there are even more. Kind of wild, actually, but most of them look the same as the main site.

    If your looking for sites go to www.apple.com and scroll down to the bottom of the page. You will there find a menu which you can choose from.

    Interestingly enough, some apple sites are part of the apple site like the swiss one:

    www.apple.com/chfr/

    The Cube will probably return when there is an increase in I.T spending and spending by people for computers.

    the cube, along with it's famous cousin the Rubic's Cube, is destined only for trivia-show fodder.

    apple will not re-release it. the market slapped it's hand once already.

    Also, when I got 10.1. way back in September (I think, around then anyway), this Swiss Apple dealer had 4 cubes. All the 450mhz though...

    if you really want a cube goto ebay... you could probably pick up a fixer upper and then buy one of those super cool new powerlogix 1ghz upgrade cards...

    The cubes I was talking about were brand new. Although one of eBay would be quite nice.

    apple site

    The US Apple site has been changing by bits and pieces, also moving towards a more chrome look.

    I didn't see them on display (Chavannes Manor) but there was a form indicating all available macs at present in their store/ storehouse. And some had various dates next to them when availabel). There was still flower power imac, and older imacs but there was on the sheet a G4 Cube 450 Mhz, 128 ram, CD RW. The sheet was lying around so.. i was curious:) It was on top of the Athena computers :p

    Athena... just strikes shivers onto anyone back. 'nuff said'

    Besides, no one would want a 'display' cube which has been on display for about half a year, now in storage... 'nuff said
