    So Apple's Birthday is on April 1. Any rumors about special products for their 30th anniversary? I'm in the market to replace an aging G4 Powerbook and a G5 iMac.

    There was older rumors about a true video iPod and Intel iBooks, (MacBooks), but lately those prodcuts are now rumored to be released later, like in June... But hey, nobody knows.... so maybe, maybe not. :)

    I find that the term true video Ipod meaningless. The 5G plays video and that's a real video I think!

    hmm... MacBook would love to see what that is...

    There's rumours of an Intel iMac and an Intel PowerBook. Yes there is.

    Have you thought about the MacBook Pro ? It's already available, check it out.

    Rich.

    Hey ppppppprincealfieeeeee,

    Just had lunch (don't ask what I had :eek: )

    I am a postdoctoral researcher at Yale. Fall here in the East Cost is really beautiful, but winter last forever!

    Have a ?? for you. Where did you get that great picture? Is it your bunny? And what does it have to do w/ April Fool's day? Sorry, I'm a little slow today...:confused:

    Actually, I found the picture of the bunny from my friend in a Leica photographer clubby. By the way, I got my MPH from Yale University back in 2001. And I feel so old school.

    Blame the researcher Dr. Mack who had a ton of Powermac G3's which I used in the summer of 2000 for my internship at Yale (Church St. Environmental Health Science building).

    Yuck I really hated Mac OS 9.0 when I used it. And Internet Explorer was horrible!

    It was when I bought a 25 dollar tangerine iBook from my friend Eric that I began to warm up to Mac. Now I am suffering from Apple Acquisition Syndrome.

    So Yale is what caused me to use Macs. My friend--- well, to love Macs.

    And the bunny is a Mac user in case you're wondering. My friend knows that he loves to be photographed with Leicas, which is the fabulous Apple of cameras!

    By the way, there is no connection of the bunny with April's Fools Day. It's an Easter thang!

    By the way, avoid that crappy overpriced crap food at Stillman Hall. I didn't really like Yale prices very much.

    Is there an Apple store in New Haven?

    Hello fellow Yale colleague! Don't worry, I am probably older than you (trust me)...:(

    Am glad you "saw the light" at Yale and from your friend Eric after your conversion to Mac.

    And no, there is no Apple Store in New Haven :( . Do you miss the East Coast? Have you tried Pepe's Pizza? Sally's? Me thinks Pepe's the best!

    Opps!! Sorry Deltan...For the April 1st, heard from some of the Mac Techs here that there will probably be minor updates. Or combination specials. Why do you want a G5 iMac when you can get the intel iMac now?
