Just wanting to see what people think Apple is going to do before Macworld NY...
Just the normal, I say. Last time they went crazy... I don't think we'll see that agin for a while. Unless it's their new plan to hype everything to the maxxx
It kind of depends on where I will be. I might still be in Maine for summer vacation, or maybe I will be at home here in NJ. If I am here or there, especially here, I will be watching as much of the broadcast as I can for Quicktime Streaming, assuming ther eis any this time.
However, I may be on the road home with my parents, so I won't be able to catch the 'cast. But I look forward to seeing what the PowerMacs will bring us; however, I will have to watch the 'cast streaming over 28.8k dial-up.
How does your location make a difference as to how Apple will hype the expo???
At my condo in Maine I have an iMac, but I try to keep as little junk as possible on it. But I guess it's not an excellent reason.
Well, you think of a better one!
As I posted in an earlier tread, the hype/rumors do not seem to be in full gear.
You're right. I keep thinking that maybe poeple realise we won't see an Appel PDA or 2GHz G5s... but there will always be a few who go crazy in the hype (that they are creating themselves)...
I don't think there will be alot of hype this expo. I think Apple will lay low and then shock us with awsome updates and cool new stuff
normal hype, i just can't think what will be announced.
COME ON OSX!
i hope theres barely any hype and they give us big stuff like macmaniac said
but they'll probably just put tonnes of hype n dont have anything diff cept processor upgrade on the G4 Imac
I don't think we'll see much more then the usual MWNY banner.
I agree with many of the posts here:
* Apple will hype nothing (considering how badly they flopped last Macworld);
* The rumor sites will continue to hype to completely unrealistic levels, as they always do; Mac worshippers will believe it; reasonably-minded Mac fans will not;
* The actual event itself will bring moderate improvements to the platform as a whole, but nothing near the BS rumor sites' expectations.
* Mac fanatics will either claim that these improvements are the greatest thing to hit the computer world since the microprocessor, or they'll apologetically defend the product line's impotence; less unrealistic Mac fans will be disappointed and will be flamed by the fanatics for feeling that way.
I'm seriously hoping for 1.4GHz G4s, running on a DDR-RAM mobo with IEEE1394b. But if I were to bet on this, I could not.
Re: MW Hype
If it "BS" then why are you here?
i think apple will be very low-key on this one.
they overdid it at mwsf and i think it bit them on the butt...."backstge pass to the future", more like a free pass to a ben afflack movie....
please, no pyrotechnics-just show us amazingly improved gear.
at least the give Arn a nice slogan for MR
i reckon there will be moderate hype. assuming they mention something about the 1GHz TiBook...
