    Wasn't sure where to post this, so admins move it if need be... but after months of little activity at www.macshrine.com, suddenly they posted this huge story this morning (?)about tons of Apple inside info, or what would seem to be.

    What's covered in it:

    - Upcoming Powerbook G5. Was supposed to be at WWDC, but not ready.
    - iTunes 5, and some features.
    - The new iBook specs (in new colored casings)
    - Special editions black laptops
    - Mac OS X 10.6 "Lion"
    - Work on a 3D Mac OS 11
    - iWork '06
    - Upcoming 5th generation iPods
    - The camera iPod? "iPal"
    - iPhone
    - New bluetooth keyboard and mouse.

    I don't know HOW they would have info on all this, considering the rumors mills have been slowing down. If its accurate, its definitely significant. I just stumbled on it this morning while in class. Is it a joke? Have the rumor sites just not picked it up?

    What's your take?

    Just released 4.8 maybe a mention... not a new update.

    10.4 just came out

    Why talk about 10.6 than 11.0

    hahahahahahahhahaaa

    My take its probably a joke.... alot sounds way to far fetched.

    Apple needs to do something to catch up to PC's. I dont want to hear all the apple loyalists now. But realisticly, apple is only about 5% of the Market. I would like to see that increase to 15% sometime in the future.

    Anyway this might just be some wishful thinking. But if any of this is true, I am going to resurface this thread and say "i told you so"

    The only thing that MAY happen are the 5G iPods, the rest is obviously BS

    Why is this too far fetched?? This all seems very possible to me.

    Just wait, just wait and see. ;)

    5% makes it one of the top five biggest hardware companies in the world.

    Why do people insist on comparing Apple vs Microsoft? Apple = hardware company that makes their own OS. Microsoft = software company that lives off the OS.

    Apple is better compared to Dell, HP, etc. And Dell, the biggest manufacturer, has a whopping 15% market share.

    The third place was 5% if I remember right.

    It's hard to decide whether it was the typos, the incorrect G4 speeds cited for current PowerBooks, or the use of the word "funnest" ... but in the end, it's all junk. Sure, ultimately it might turn out that they guessed right on a couple things, big deal. In any case, I say it's a joke.

    You guys think theres any truth/possibility in the updated Bluetooth perhiphals. I just placed an order for the Bluetooth mouse and keyborad and I would be choked if they are updated at WWDC. I mean they have been out for a while now right?
