    We've all been waiting for the G5 forever, and its release last Monday was a major step for Apple. After waiting years for OS X and getting it ( or should I say Copland, I mean, er, Rapsody, I mean, er...), it was way cool to finally see the fabled G5. So this is just a fun little thread to see where everyone watched the keynote.

    I was on the tail end of my honeymoon at the Durham, NC store (Southpointe), with my wife (a switcher). Sounds geeky, but it was her idea. :)

    So, where were you?

    Regards,
    Gus

    in an irc chatroom.

    the houston galleria store wasn't showing the keynote so it wasn't really worth it to go down there.

    i decided to take leave from the forums immediately after the wwdc and the inevitable flood of posts that would occur.

    At work, nervously checking Apple's web site every 10 minutes, alternating with MacRumors' site and then trying not to get caught slackin'.

    I don't think its quite appropriate to joke about the murder of someone. Whether or not you believe the conspiracies or how good a president Kennedy was is irrelevant. The fact remains someone was murdered that day and joking about it is not exactly well, funny.

    Right here, through the whole thing.

    Tazo, the whole point is that the "where were you when...." thing has sort of been overdone. It's lost its impact. Sort of like the word "gay" no longer means what it did in the early 1900s and has morphed into something else in the past few years. Your respect for a word or phrase may not be shared by others.

    Your right Ugg. I have to respect people's right to make jokes about another person's death. I do not want to drag this thread off topic so I will close with this: that was a slap in the face with the 'gay' comment.

    sitting in a diner, having a burger, after returning from UPS where i'd mailed off my 15" powerbook. So much for replacing it with a brand new one to be announced at WWDC...

    i agree on the gay thing. whether its right or wrong most people im around gay has morphed into the a word similar to stupid. like... that's gay (because its dumb). dont know how it got that way but thats whats happened.

    Sorry, cannot talk about it...

    That thread was flushed.

    ---

    Watching television, that's the ticket.

    News, MSNBC -- because that darn Apple broadcast wasn't on.

    I remember it like it was just not too long ago.I was sitting on chaosmint.com, waiting for the page to refresh. It did, and my G5 wishes had all come true. Such a heartwarming story, isn't it.
