    Let me get this straight, it's Apple's birthday, and you want them to give us gifts? :confused: If so, please let me know when your birthday is and I'll come by your house that day demanding a gift from you. :p :cool:

    I love it when people get all shirty about the fact that RUMOURS not coming to fruition. Or that just because it's Apples bday means they'll have a whole lot of new products.

    lol. . . so in a similar manner, typically companies offer 'gifts' on their anniversaries. Often "30th anniversary sale" or such. but really, they celebrate the company's success by rewarding the customers. an all us apple folk want new products as a reward :)

    anyway. . .i stopped by an apple store this morning when it opened and found that if you wish apple a happy birthday upon checkout (i bought a griffin power mate) that you will receive 20% off, and a free iPod nano 1GB. !!! but only if you wish apple a happy birthday, if you dont say anything, you dont get anything.

    You guys are all freaking insane. They just released the MBP's. Not everything is instant and on your demand. You'll just have to settle for regular old really cool macs for now :\.

    If they are not going to release anything, you would think they would at least have a celebration.
