    I don't know! I know I sure am feeling a bit.. excited, even though I really do not like the way Apple releases products sometimes.

    Less than 24 hours away.. anyone else is ready to spring on that new PB?

    Feeling that way is fine, but where Apple is concerned I prefer to lower the expectations. The odds usually favor people being somewhat disappointed, but the wait will be over soon. I hope those who've been so patient and holding off on purchases gets something that has been on their wish list.

    I am ready to buy a new PB. But, I think we should all get ready for the oh so innovative video ipod. I have always wanted to watch movies on my ipod instead of my Plasma. :rolleyes:

    I was, but now I'm worried that it will just be a video iPod.

    Well, I can't wait for a video iPod to add to my growing collection of iPods. One day, I'll give them to my grandchildren or give it away to the Smithsonian Institute.

    I am not excited about a video iPod and I don't care about PB updates so no I am not jittery.

    I'm feelin' it today. Usually if I go to bed early the night before with my ipod blaring I can relieve myself of anticipation.

    Sorry to disappoint you, but I highly doubt there will be PB updates for tomorrow. It just seems to make no sense. :confused:

    If Apple is really going to launch new products tomorrow, it will be something NEW. Beyond the new iPods, I'm expecting to see something like an "iMedia" for home entertainment.

    My iMac arrives tomorrow, so I'll be a little miffed if there are any iMac updates, especially since most forums etc suggested it's too soon for one. Who knows. Will be interesting to see what all the fuss IS about.

    I generally get excited by most Apple product announcements. Its bound to be beautiful etc. I probability won't be buying what they release so I won't be dissapointed if they do or don't release vPods/PowerMacs or anything.

    Number 1 . . .

    Okay...

    Number 1 . . . Why a video iPod? Nobody wants to watch videos on their phones, why would they want to watch videos on their iPod? Only the Japanese (the world's most notorious gadget heads) want to watch videos and movies on a tiny screen.

    Number 2 . . . The PB updates are coming, but probably not for a couple of weeks. I have been waiting since May and I am prepared to be disappointed with tomorrow's event. My prediction is October 25th for PB and PowerMac updates.

    Number 3 . . . Why doesn't Apple bring back the Newton? I refuse to get a Windows-based PDA and I am sooooo sick of the inferiority and sync issues with my Palm OS device.

    Here's hoping PB's are updated tomorrow. I'm getting one ASAP!

    I don't really mind if the announcement is just about new iPods so long as all the other ones get a slight discount (but hopefully the nano! I really want one :p ). Interesting, Fox Channel 2 news report just said that Apple is likely to release the Madonna theme pink iPod w/ her complete collection of music tomorrow. I'm guessing they're not really reputable, though, huh? :eek:

    It would be nice to see upgrades to the computers... but I'm not really in the market so it doesn't directly impact me.
