    ... you see a poll like this on the front page.

    should we curl up and get comfortable in the community discussion section and expect a quiet rumor scene for the next few weeks? i mean, really, iCal and iSync don't count. i don't see them updating any hardware anytime too soon.

    thoughts?

    or, "have you purchased one of these yet?"

    * Yes.
    * No, and not planning on it.
    * No, but planning on it now!

    Well, as it seems, this has all but been the un-official "PowerMac G5, Panther, and PowerBook" rumor site for the past half year, so now that both have shipped and Panther is almost GM, we are left with this lull where all that's going on is random software updates and the only hardware not updated are eMac, iBook, and Xserve. I can see iBooks being the next big thing, but since most people won't be getting an Xserve and the eMac is just the bargain education machine that normally gets quiet freshening, there's not much out there to go nuts over. The iPod rumors do look pretty cool, though...if only I could afford one.

    The rumors about new docks/gadgets for the iPod, the new article on the front page about networked/wireless iPods, video iPods, etc.

    that front page isn't really a rumor per se... it's a speculative article about a new technology (the link to apple is especially speculative). as for peripherals, i would consider daily rumors about iPod gadgets to be just another part of the daily doldrums we're facing...

    I believe that there was a thread about that subject not long ago! It seems that no subject is left untouched. All bodily functions covered! :p

    It could be an interesting experiment to create an outlandish hoax and propagate it across all of the rumor forums. Could be interesting just to see if it makes it to the frontpage of any sites and if it becomes an "Apple Legend" that refuses to die (iWalk/Newton 2)

    If user created polls were still enabled we could just do what we did the last time we hit a dull patch ;) :p

    Actually, I think here's a thread that's never been brought up before:

    Do you pee standing or sitting?

    that wouldn't quite work, though. there are always the guys who, at least sometimes, sit to pee for various reasons. people would be begging for in-between answers.

    So are we going to discuss the position that we use to void. I believe that eyelikeart if the expert on the manner of its discussion!

    i think the next big thing won't come until next year

    the obvious "big things" that should be here in the future are the G5 powerbook, then G5s in imacs and emacs, and os 11

    ...or maybe something no one here has even imagined akin to the ipod...that rumor came out of nowhere and nobody believed it until it came out

    i would like to see an apple cell phone, or pda

    and it would be cool for microsoft to offer microsoft works for mac complete with word...and better yet, have it bundled in every mac purchase just like microsoft works or works suite can be found in many PCs

    yeah. MS word is expensive to buy after you've just got a mac. it's really annoying that they don't come with it... i have had people ask what you do for word processing and stuff... lots of dells actually come with office standard preloaded onto the computer, not just works. it would help the value of macs, i think, to actually include these with it... or totally revamp appleworks to be as full-featured as office v.X.
