Well well...

This could either be the announcement of the 970 or a nice presentation of the 970 announced at some previous event (WWDC...). :D

Just my speculation. :)

what could they want to present?

Duh. Finally, iWalk will make its debut...

But seriously folks, why must Apple put these poor expo guys through the ringer? Macworlds are a grrrrreat! way of garnering publicity and giving us something to look forward to.

C'mon Steve... grace the stage with your moxy and showmanship... Apple is one of the greatest shows on earth....

It's going to be a Bill Gates impersonator. They're going to reenact my favorite scene from South Park: Bigger Longer and Uncut.

Years later, nothing's changed... :rolleyes:

And Ballmer has the ballmers to talk smack about Linux compared to Windows server.....

This is good - nice to see that even though they won't be having a Keynote there, they're atleast being a part of it. Especially after all that crap with MWNY vs. MWBoston....

And if it is the 970 - I might have to go.....

Anyone planning on being there?

This will NOT be a 970 preview

I mean think about it, if Apple shows the 970 and says
'coming in 3 months' or something like that they could pretty much guarentee that sales would fall off the charts until the 970 was actually available for ordering. Who's gonna buy a G4 if they know when the 970 is coming? Nobody.

Perhaps this would be a good time to pay NY a visit.
A friend of mine has promised me a broad way show for a long time.....

What exactly is "Feature Presentation" suppose to mean? A film? Some speaker showing new stuff? What?

Maybe it will be Mr. Jobs giving one last speech at a MacWorld (or what ever they want to call it now). Imagine a 970 introduction as the finale to all keynotes.

Re: Apple Feature Presentation at MacWorld CreativePro

I guess its Phil. Steve handles the OS and hardware while Phil handles Software (Appls own, like FCP4,DSP3 and Shake3) +and others... PS and stuff + marketing of OS X features.

it's prpbobly a mix of the old, but new, Power Of X session with presentation of new Documents (iWorks or what ever) and so on. Some thirdparty software like PS and Maya probobly will be shown.

I don't mind Phil though. I think he is great as a keynote speaker. Actually most of the Apple people i'v listen to (e.g. WWDC) are excelent speakers.

I don't understand. Who said anything about 'coming in 3 months'? It could be a 'preview' in the sense of 'available to order now, shipping in 3-4 weeks'.

I presume that your objecting to the idea of 'preview' not '970'. Or am I misunderstanding? Are you also trying to say that we won't see the 970 at this MW, let alone before (WWDC)?

If that's what you think, then I'd like to know why? Personally, I'm very optomistic about seeing the 970 released this summer.

Oh, I'm envious! I can't afford to go (either for time or money)...

:(

Pick me up a nice 970 while you're there, okay? :D

who's ordering a g4 now anyway (let alone in 3 months)? especially when an intel machine running whatever u need (linux, xp, redhat, etc.) can do it faster and cheaper?

bring on the 970 and bring it on now!!

I'm hoping they'll introduce the 970 in the upcoming 15.4" AlBook. I can't think of any other reason that this Powerbook has been delayed so long. They'll probably upgrade the 17" at about the same time. It is supposedly "the year of the laptop" so I hope this will happen. I do a lot of audio work and the software I'm using ( DP4, Reason, Ableton Live, NI softsynths) can easily max out my G4 500MP and buying a dual 1.42 machine just isn't enough of a performance boost to justify upgrading. I know I must be losing patience when PC notebooks are starting to look like a better audio solution to me. I hope Apple does something quick before I turn to the dark side ;)

Get real. It's going to be about 10.3. There will be no announcement of the 970 in any fashion at all.

New chip releases? Don't count on it.

Unless these things are in the Apple store on July 15th for sale Apple is stupid to announce anything at all.

Everyone seems to think they have some BIG THING UP THEIR SLEEVE.

Its lame. They will probably announce a new version if Safari, iBlaBLa and some word processor that, while better then word, is not quite compatible.

Shoot, at this point I will take a fully compatible MS Exchange client over a 970 powermac. What is all that speed worth if I still have to run a windows box for corp email.

I'm not going to be buying any more G4s even if the 970 is delayed that long. Either way, they lose me as a customer if the 970 isn't here really soon.

I have postponed my purchase as well.
Even if it will take them some more time, I will not go back to PeeCees just to get a quick fix.
I will patiently wait and meanwhile work on my 15' i-mac:)
