    I bet Apple takes this down soon. I read recently that someone could only take 3 still pictures of the G5 in an Apple Store before he was asked to stop. A video hosted on a .Mac account shouldn't last long I think.

    The product is actually on shelves now, why wouldn't they be allowed to post video online?

    I dont believe that.

    Cool video.

    Me want G5.

    BTW--What IS up with the baked Powerbook? :eek:

    Believe what you want, but I am speaking from experience. I had a copy of the Power Mac G5 commercial that I captured on my .Mac homepage, and it was soon removed and a .Mac security message appeared in my inbox.

    So, Apple didn't want me showing others their commercials that were already being shown on television.

    Apple didn't allow a user to take still pictures of a G5 in a Apple Store.

    And now someone has a video of a G5 in an Apple store? Seems logical that it should be taken down soon.

    Not that I think it is right, but I do think it will happen. :(

    If you are right, then that is really, really weird.

    Someone give me a direct link to download it and I will host it if needed. It will never get taken down. :D

    I am confused...I could have *sworn* I heard that the G5 goes to sleep instantly if you remove the plastic side piece, but when he takes it off, the fans all go to full speed. Do the fans still work even when it goes to sleep or is sleep mode turned off?

    Cool Video, though you could trick thr system by taking the plastic off and just jamming the sensors.

    :)

    Pretty Neat.

    I know, it was Apple's property and all, I just think it is funny that it was a public commercial that wasn't allowed to be seen on the Internet. Well, whatever. That was 2 months ago.

    Even if you throw my situation out, the guy who wasn't allowed to take pictures surely would mean that video would not be allowed either.

    About the fans-that is really weird. I also thought that the machine goes to sleep when the plastic cover it removed. But this video shows otherwise.

    That's actually what it should be like, if something goes wrong, the fans should instantly go to full speed (eg. if the system hangs, which controlls the fans), that's how servers work. Otherwise, you'd kill that processor in no time.

    If the clear cover is for airflow (makes sense, look at its shape) then it makes sense that without it, the fans would have to blow harder to achieve the same cooling.

    And the G5 isn't meant to sleep when the side is opened: Panther has a nifty "case open" icon that appears on-screen when you open your G5. That wouldn't be there if the Mac were not still awake.

    (Does anyone know just where the internal speaker is hiding?)

    Cool. It sounds like a vacuum cleaner with the side off. :) I can't imagine what it would be like with the Dual 2ghz. Ack.

    my guess is that i will sound exactly the same .. since the 2ghz x2 has only 1 more fan then the 1.6 or 1.8

    in the processor zone.. the 1.6 and 1.8 has 1 intake fan and two exhaust while the dual 2ghz.. has two intake and two exhaust


    so now you can imagine..

    :cool:

    what i find interesting about this is that the powermac continued to work after the shield was taken off. it was my understanding that the machine was designed NOT to work unless the shield was properly in place.

    When an Apple Store opened near my house in St. Louis, I grabbed my camera and went down to take pictures of "the closest thing to heaven on earth." I got off about two pictures before one of the employees told me I was not allowed to take pictures of the store displays. When I asked why he said that it was because the pictures could be used by competitors to mimick successful display styles and layouts of the store. So that explains why Apple won't let you post on the web pictures of the store or of product arrangements.
