As one of the free giveaway gifts at the Panther Launch tonight, Apple will reportedly be giving away Panther Dog Tags.

https://www.macrumors.com/downloads/tags.jpg

This image appeared in an Apple Japan email. The tags were described by a Page 2 report as "silver with a black Apple on one side, the other side being all black, one with just the silver X and the other with the silver X but saying Mac OS X 10.3 Panther Worldwide Release October 24th"

Another reader reports free Panther mousepads at their local Best Buy.

The 'Night of Panther' release party starts at 8pm at your local Apple Store or participating Reseller.

I could use a new mousepad. Do I have to wait until 8 for Best Buy to start giving them out, or can I head over there now?

Does anyone know for sure if you will have to purchase Panther to get the free dog tags?

Ok Apple really needs to have a store in Grand Rapids, MI. This sucks. the only thing we have here is CompUSA and i don't think they are doing the event tonight. I wish they were. And I'm not driving to detroit.

Cool!

Holy crap, that is crazy!

I wanted a t-shirt pretty bad. A black tee with that silver X would have been very cool indeed, oh well. However, the dog tags will be useful when the war with Microsoft begins. Otherwise, I don't know what use you'd have for them.

I'm heading out the door to Clarendon right now! Hopefully I'll run into some people from the forums here, I'll be wearing a Apple Store Tysons Corner T-Shirt and a Pier 14 jacket and I'll have my digital cam to take pictures for pctomac.com, if anyone wants to say hi!

No self-respecting feline would wear "dog" tags. They're "cat" tags....:D

I was considering going, but how many people will realistically be there? Like 3 people showed up for their music event last week. I don't want to be standing there with 2 or 3 other geeks with 10 apple store employees. Is this event really that big?
