    Anybody suffering from it?
    I guess most of us do :p when I look at the traffic last few days.

    I have serious MW stress, more MW fever.
    I checking every 30sec all known sites, hoping for new juicy details and stuff.

    as some of you noted yesterday, my fever went soo high that I used size 12 to say:
    comon Apple, bring it on!

    After some posts from fellow MR-members, I realised that my temp
    was around 40°C or 104°F, so I took a painkiller, and a cold bath to cool off, after that it went better, but now...
    Guess around 42°C or 107.6°F, I have a meeting with the boss at 10AM (local time) I think that he will hear me say 'Apple' a lot.
    :D

    You're not the only one. As a result of usual insomnia/MW excitement I got exactly 4.5 hours of sleep last night. That translates out to being twitchy and weird and rambling about Apple a lot.

    I've been through this a few times and its not a big deal for me. I'm not going to be buying anything anyway. I'm curious, but not stressed.

    Yeah, but with 153 users all chatting at the same time things get hard to follow.

    I'm not really stressed just tired.

    re: post MW stress

    hmm...don't u mean pre-MW stress?? ;)

    I don't think it's going to be that big of a deal...mostly for those who are eagerly awaiting a speed bump in the G4 towers...

    I just hope Apple does something about their standings with the other companies...they are seriously lacking in the hardware dept...

    well, I'm not suffering from post-keynote stress, just further dissapointment. I was sort of expecting it, actually.

    I was not expecting much of anything at this expo to be honest.

    well, for no expectations, you should be pretty happy. The whole convergence of the Digital Lifestyle is pretty damn cool. It just that software is nice or just ok - but we've been waiting for new machines for too long, dammit. And when we see the new ones - probably when jag-wire ships - they'll just be speed bumped - maybe new mobos on the ProLine.

    Oh well, start looking for *HYPE* again a MWSF '03.

    Glad I have Geekfest pics to get me excited......;)

    I was especially pleased by the announcement of the 20GB iPods. I'll probably purchase one this fall. The 10% size decrease was also a bit unexpected.

    I must admit though, throught the whole flurry of new software and features on Jag-wire, there were absolutly no Mhz bumps, etc, in any of the product lines. It seems they are on the edge of something, but they just can't announce it yet.

    I couldn't get into the javanated chat room, either. Honestly, I could care a bit less, though, since I have never successfully worked with chat and I plan to not work with chat. The forums are simple enough for me.

    I kind of suffered from MWNY hype. I went to bed around mid. and arrived at my computer a few minutes before the broadcast, which had the ƒ'iest reception I've ever seen.

    Now I have iPod hype. I want to sell my iPod and get the newer 5GB one, but it may be a REAL long time before that happens, due to other issues.

    Where is the damn iPod FW updater???!!!!????

    I got iTunes 3 with all the new features, but my iPod is still a portable iTunes 2.

    As if Apple couldn't piss me off any more.

    I was talking with my dad and he and I came to an agreement that if I put X amount of dollars into stocks or an IRA, he would purchase X dollars worth of Apple equipment. I think an IRA can only be opened when you are of 18 years of age or older, but hey that gives me more time to save. :D

    At the moment I have 700 dollars; my minimun goal is 1,500. I might just try and invest now just to get that 20GB iPod. :D

    I think you're right about the speed increases..... although to be honest...... the only ones that are due for a speed increase is the iMac G4 and the PowerMacs....... the other product lines were only uprated a quite recently....... Apple can't really increase the iMac G4 speed until the PowerMacs get their increase as otherwise they'll overlap even more than they're at the moment.......

    Must admit though... OSX.2 seems likes it's going to really rock straight out of the box...!!

    Even if the box does look like a retro 70s fetish object. :D

    I would like (as most people in these forums) to see a mobo upgrade on the PowerMac line. Other than that....I'm quite content with what Apple has put out today.

    Now all we need is the next version of X, codename : "Shag-Carpeting." :D :D

    Hey, the longer they wait to release new PowerMacs, the more time I have to save money. :D :D

    I don't care when they release the new PMs. I'm absolutly content with the 20GB iPod and 10% size reduction.

    I say the 10.2 packaging looks like a hoochie box.

    At least 10.2 server still looks respectable, if not better.

    That's almost my line of thinking... I'm not buying till early next year... so no matter what was or could have been today...... I wouldn't have been buying anyway.....

    I can't wait until a few weeks after the expo when all the countless threads b*tching about no powermac updates begin to dissapear.
