    Can someone accurately translate the Oct 2 2002 entry from this site?

    http://www.kodawarisan.com/ug/

    I tried the auto-translators and they don't give a good translation.

    thanks

    Hmmmmm....

    From what I can make out of it, it seems to say that the Powerbooks will get a Superdrive along with a price cut.


    BTW, I wish sh*t wasn't censored cuz everytime Matsush*ta is mentioned it looks funny.:(

    Of course there will be a new Powerbook...the question is when?

    Is this saying MWSF03? That would be one real long time for an update...

    Well, not unless there is a speed bump in between....which would be fine for most people. But the rumors are pretty scarce - someone needs to do some digging and find out what's going on.

    It appears they are saying...

    Work began on a new Superdrive equipped PowerBook back when the PowerBook G4(DVI) was introduced and they are simply waiting on supplies of the recently announced slot-loading Superdrive by Matsu****a. Prices of current models are coming down and inventory levels are dropping so an announcement must be coming soon.

    That is how I read the translation.

    Jeezus, these translations are numbing my mind!

    Here ya go:

    -------------------

    - Who will host Macworld 2003? Steve, of course!
    According to sources, as always, Steve will give the keynote address at MacWorld Expo SF 2003.

    - Has production ended on the current PowerBook G4 models?
    According to sources, Apple has begun manufacturing a new PowerBook G4(DVI) model. There is a possibility that the recently announced slot-loading SuperDrives by Matsu****a (Panasonic) will be used in the new PowerBooks. Prices for the current PowerBook G4 have dropped and inventory is decreasing as planned. It looks like Apple's plans for timing of an announcement will go unchanged.

    -------------------

    Is that better?

    PS I didn't realize that Panasonic's Japan name required censoring.

    it sounds like they are getting slot load super drives.

    now, if the get slot load AND a price drop AND a speed bump, i will be mucho unhappy with them...my TiBook isnt that old and dropping the price with more options added will tick me off. We will see, it doesnt sound like they will be getting this out real soon.

    My Japanese friend who isn't really a techie, but a native japanese speaker gave it a quick read through and summed it up as this:
    They've stopped making the G4powerbooks of the current configuration and have started to make the new version. The site says that they are only guessing that the new slot loading superdrive from matsu****a may be included.

    They also said they it would have an external Superdrive earlier. Who knows what their track record is anyway? But then, they do consider themselves...

    Translation

    It seems like you guys got the general idea. But I'll post an accurate translation of the article anyway:

    "According to my sources, a new model has started production on the old Powerbook G4(DVI) assembly line. It is possible that the production of the recently announced Matsu****a slot-loading superdrive may be incorporated (waiting confirmation on this info). Considering that the prices of the current Powerbook G4 are being reduced and the fact the the remaining stock at dealers are slowly diminishing, a new model has been expected."

    we get the idea

    the human translator is still the best. His sources say production of a new G4 Powerbook has started and looks like they include the recently announced Matsu****a(I had to say it) slot loading Super Drive since their production coincides with the new G4's.
    Using rumor forsenics, it clues you into to that his sources possibly deal with Matsu****a in some way and used production info and current PB market info to confirm.

    Elsewhere on the page, Mr. Kodawari, will be in SF for the keynote. Rumor mongers unite!

    hey, what's with this shiita?

    there's some auto censoring going on here. You can't get "Matsu" and "****a" in the same word. Why would anyone give a ****a about that?

    It's already been done, but thanks for the opportunity. :)

    I'm surprised the auto-translation didn't make Matsusita (Japanese government transliteration--uncensored--<lol>) into Pine Tree Beneath...which is what it means. :D
