    That's amazing to read! Being relatively new to the forums, I've never seen those old posts. So many negatives and look how the iPod has taken off:D It makes you wonder what the next thing will be that everyone boos...

    Sweet! 100th post :eek:

    Yeah really! Wheres the G5!? That thing would make an awesome server! I betcha anything it'll get to 3 GHz by 2003 and be in PowerBooks by 2004! That iPod... all it will be is just another useless toy and will never get the company anywhere.

    On a happier note, I am really looking foward to iTunes 2 coming out in November! Will it be more compatible with OS X, do you guys think?

    Intel, WTF are you smoking? I guar-un-tee'ya that'll never happen! Apple will switch to Intel if hell freezes over and Bill Gates decides to convince people to buy Macs!

    Panther, what the heck is that? I'm looking foward to 10.2! Maybe we can get some extra features and a nicer browser to replace IE which they need to update soon! I am thinking IE 6 by 2002, at the latest. Microsoft is always on the ball with their Mac upgrades.

    Hey man, it's just a hunch. a buddy of mine once told me I have supernatural powers! who knows but all i have to say is if and when they switch to intel...BAM...I was the first to predict it.

    That panther dude is who you should be asking whats smokin.

    Yeah, you're probably right! I could see Intel happening if Microsoft somehow seemed to abandon them because MS decided to support AMD during a crazy legal battle... yeah... that would work.

    This Panther thing confuses me still. Lets take it one step at a time here. We first need 10.2 (either Jaguar or TomCat, not sure which) and then we can focus on the long term. I also want an update to 9.3 for better Classic support and ability to boot natively on new-world machines.

    I find this comment, from one of the few from that period still around, quite amusing:
    Guess who? ;)

    Boy, nobody liked the iPod much did they?

    It's so funny reading all these iPod horror stories isn't it.

    The site admins could save so much space just by taking these threads and search and replace whatever is the newest product and price.... :)

    Yup. I think this would be a great place for a form-letter style thread that gets wheeled out after every announcement with the spaces filled in by whatever is in the title.
