    A CNET article points out:

    Supplies of Apple Computer's iMacs are dwindling at resellers and distributors, a sign that changes could be in store for the company's venerable all-in-one computer.


    Changes may also be afoot for the PowerMac, Apple's professional line. All of the single-processor PowerMacs show a 10-day wait for shipment at Apple's online store. The reseller noted there are still quite a few of the current PowerMac models in the distribution channel but said he expects upgraded models to be announced soon.

    So, despite no live broadcast of the keynote... it appears we may have something to look forward to. :)

    MWNY Will be broadcast Live

    Look at the page. To quote a passage:

    "Contrary to other published reports, Apple CEO Steve Jobs' Macworld New York keynote will be broadcast via satellite and QuickTime streaming, Apple announced today. The Apple leader will give his keynote on Wednesday, July 18, 9:00 a.m. (Eastern) at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York.

    sorry to burst your bubble

    Here in Canada, London Drugs shipped all extra stock of iMacs backed to Apple a few weeks ago so Apple could send them to liquidators such as Coscto...... some interesting news.... Also local Apple dealers have said that they have no iBooks and they cannot get in any iMacs, or G4 Powermacs... PowerBooks take a few weeks though....

    iBooks have been backorderd for 3-4 weeks due to high demand and limited supply. As more orders come in, the wait gets longer and ibooks become harder to find. No online retailers have them in, and apple has a 3-4 week wait.
