Ok, look. You guys all know me, and I don't ever go around saying "I know a guy from Apple that says..." I have been talking to someone on Carracho though. A product reviewer for MacWorld magazine and such. He told me that I could download anything I wanted and be a member if I gave him an episode of Star Trek. He said he is leaving for New York on Sunday, and wants to watch the Episodes in his hotel. We agreed on a deal, and I asked him what he thought was going to come for MWNY. Here is the convo: Him: yes I know a bit... log off then on and I will tell you a few things (So I logged off and signed on my admin account...) Him: I gave you the priv of viewing drop boxes, that's where 6C87 is, and it is 95% GM, you'll love it. Me: What is GM? Him: Golden Master, or Final Version Me: You a mac freak like me? Him: have been since 1984. I'm 40 :-( Him: I'll tell you a few.... First, Nick dePlume is all wrong, then again, he's just trying to piss apple off now, so don't listen to him...<more> Him: Here are some things... iTunes is going to be updated in Jaguar to handle WAV and AIFF encoding, you'll see that in this build....now you can rip a CD into WAVs and turn WAVs into MP3's... iPod is going to 20GB, but I think most people knew that... iMovie 3 New PowerMacs, now I haven't seen them, but I was told to expect brushed metal, squarish cases Him: There are some other things, big things, but I just can't say, it's too big to spoil the surprise Me: Can I have a clue Him: low-end 1Ghz, but I don't know if they are going much past that. I was told to expect Dual processors across the board. Want a clue to the BIG "one more thing...." Inkwell Me: Which episode do you want? Him: ShockWave Me: Thats the name??? Him: yes, Shockwave or one called 'Terra Nova', or if you can't get those, then one called "Unexpected" Him: Oh, all Macs beginning with the Towers will have bluetooth built in Me: So you mean the towers will go first, and the rest of the line will be updated with time? Him: yep, the rest in the Fall. One new iMac bump, top of the line goes to 1Ghz with blutooth, but the rest stay the same, or so I heard Him: iMac is staying at 15", not 17" Me: What about Jaguar? Him: Well, it will be announced for August 1st, which is only like 10 days after the show Him: it will be done (Jaguar), that is what steve is going to say, he'll give a demo and then say "And it's done"... but it won't ship until August 1st Him: it's not a free update..It's going to remain 2-CD's too, I'm not going to put up the final version, I want Apple to make some money on it. Him: It's going to be a real cool 2-CD package, very impressive looking... I heard it will be $29.99 for an update, $99 for the full version And the rest of the conversation was about the server and such. I don't know, but this sounds REALLY good to me!!!
