I've been eagerly anticipating the release of the new Macbook Pros for longer then I care to mention. Alright I'll mention it, the day after the last refresh. Defying all logic, and common sense, I have struggled to work on a 60 gig first gen white Macbook assuring myself that my constant battle with memory management would all be worth it come the next release which was clearly August, and then September, and now Baracktober (oh you didn't hear, everyone is calling it that now). Enough of that malarkey- a friend of mine created a tool that works incredibly well in alerting you as to when the coveted "We'll be Back Soon" message appears on the apple store, and when it returns from the break. You can sign up here: http://theapplestore.isbackonline.com/ . You put your email in, and it does the rest. Just thought i'd share in this forum as some of you may find it useful.
