    What is the countdown on Apple's main page counting down to? A keynote or something? At first I though it would be the stroke of midnight on the 26th. But its looking more like Oct. 26th 6pm EDT. Am I missing something here?

    It's not that hard to read the code for the countdown either.

    Starting tomorrow, they're giving away free leopards. Remember to bring a leash.

    That's when Steve Jobs announces he has taken over the world and Bill Gates will become his servant along with all the other critics:D He will also pass a decree that Microsoft Windoze be banned forever!

    You ARE joking, aren't you?

    According to Al Gore due to global warming there will be a shortage of Leopards thus only the first 10 will get one:eek:
