Hi

It may be unlikely but does anybody think Apple might release anything at MacExpo London (End of November)

Thanks,
Guy Wickenden

Sadly not

If you check out the Apple UK Web site:
http://www.apple.com/uk/hotnews/articles/macexpo/
you'll see they're planning the official UK launch of the iPod at 10.50 on Thursday, presumably presented by the charismatic MD of Apple UK & Ireland who launched OS X at Micro Anvika on Tottenham Court Road. Yawn. Wake me when it's MWSF ;-)

Apple generally reserves product introductions for important countries like the US and Japan. *grin*

strange seeing as we dont make half as much of a balls up of things as americans do.

Japanese have a habit of getting things right.

What people in London need is a nice tan and a better sense of humor, that is something a Mac can't do.

Britain has the greatest comedy in the world.
London is a fun place to be with fun places to go to.
We have a laugh.

you either havent been here or you didnt get out while you were here.

I hate to sound this patriotic (because im just not), but the UK is frowned upon by many people.

London
British sense of humor

Let's look at the evidence...
Margret Thatcher, warm beer, carpets in toilets, cricket, police helmets...
Yeah, I'd say we have a sense of humor.

re: sense of humor

...and the pretty girls in the english countryside must be as blind as bats to boot, since they flocked around any american who passed through their village, even a homely dude like me

True - there is always that risk, Spikey, which is why League of Gentlemen should be required viewing for all American visitors to the UK.

American readers - I guess you might stumble across League of Gentlemen on PBS or deep, deep cable late at night - it offers a valuable insight into the risks of venturing forth into England's green and pleasant lands.

c'mon, the UK isn't that bad...
ok, well, close, but ti's not too bad
us "American's" can thank bloody ol' England for being here in the way we were....
look on the bright side, at least it's not the french who colonized in masses and took over...
back to the original subject, i could see some stuff being released in London, mainly software though and maybe some motherboard anouncements....
as for the british comedy, hmmm, i like most of it, Monty Python especially....and the old english storied make good new movies...take "A Nights Tale", it's taken from Chausers "Canterbury Tales"....

Most British comedy doesnt get exported to america. Its just too controversial, Have I Got News has been taken to court countless times.

This is a local shop for local people.
