    Turned on my 128k, played with MacPaint and turned it off. There celebrated Mac's B-Day by using the first one! Only because I'm a day ahead of you's in the US!

    Hey and did you know that there are signatures inside the case! I opened it up and found all these names on the back of the case! Woz's was there!

    Sleeping in. Its a Saturday. I don't celebrate company birthdays not even my own. Microsoft, Apple, Toshiba, Best Buy. *shrugs*
    OK, OK, so I _MIGHT_ stop by the Apple store tomorrow and see if anything new
    *shakes head* I just imagined Jobs jumping out of a cake.

    i want to celebrate mac turning 20 by turning on my computer, logging on, and finding that apple inc just announced a G5 powerbook or g5 imac...that would be a great way to celebrate the 20th for the most influential personal computer ever to hit the market:D

    I guess a better image than Gates popping out of a cake wearing a g-string and pasties. (shudder)

    A better question would be 'How does Apple plan on celebrating?'

    Its quite surprising that there is nothing seeming to be going on there.....:confused:

    since it is a weekend perhaps come monday they start the celebration if any, but then again they love tuesday, and then again the super bowl, its starting to get to me like everyone else. all i want is a new G5.

    donthurtme, i am now also wondering if there will be any major celebration ;)

    i think they may have a little news item or even a "happy birthday" on the front page, but apple inc will release a new item or speed bump when they are ready and it may not correspond with this anniversary or the superbowl...of course, that would be nice and that was my hope

    but i think of what they have done rather recently...G5 for desktop, large 20 inch imac, panther, alu 15 inch powerbook, G4 in the ibook, G5 xserve, and a mini ipod covered the bases

    the only major thing that has not changed is the emac and i only think speed bumps and increased ram is all they will do for that model as well as better prices and that will be welcome

    this day, or the coming superbowl, or any time within a month, would be perfect for a completely new apple inc item or major software release...i am excited and treating this as if it were another macworld sf

    update: now at 630 pm, pst, there is still nothing on the apple website...i guess there are no surprises today
