    you can go ask Mr Jobs since the iBooks were updated recently.

    Enjoy your talk with him.


    I hate these kinds of threads -_- and yet we have them every day which makes it hard to miss

    iBooks were just updated recently

    Edit: Doh, beaten to the punch...

    Check out the Buyer's Guide for product updates and cycles

    And since I feel nit picky tonight... its iBook, not Ibook

    There is not a chance in a million years that the iBooks will be updated any time soon. They just got updated for crying out loud! They can't update them like ... at all. I bet this might be there last update for maybe even a year. They don't have much they can update them with. It could very well be their last PPC update. Prolly' not though.

    Basic point: no updates :p

    iBooks definatly have a good chance of an update before christmas.....The last update was hardly an update more of a better bang for your buck deal, the iBooks are due for a design overhaul which is likely to come in the next revision which will probably be in October or November,

    Update: Just searched this article up: http://www.macosxrumors.com/articles/2005/09/29/several-hardware-updates-coming/

    Have a read....

    Not all that likely IMHO. But don't let that stop you from having that request at the top of your wish list for Santa. Optimism should be encouraged, not extinguished.

    clearly the chances are precisely 28.25% or may be a bit more is Saturn and the Moon line up over California but I haven't checked with my astrologer yet.

    Why do we have to have these threads on an almost daily basis?

    My haphazard guess would be because human nature is what it is and cannot be altered as easily as many would hope. I'm sure the psych majors can flesh it out better for us.

    Alas, the definitive answer has arrived straight from Vladivostok. Generally, I try to avoid calling others lazy and designating questions as stupid. Repetition is a whole other ballgame ... but others are always free to take their ball, go home and play quietly alone.

    Well, technically speaking, in the next million years, I think the chances that there will be a time after which the iBooks will soon be updated is actually fairly high. :D
