Excited? Steve didn't mention he was going to Paris. Must be going to pick up his G5. Oh! You must mean that other Steve.<br><br><br>drjohn

The keynote starts at 4:00 a.m. eastern time. There is no word yet on a QuickTime stream of the event. And, yes Sean, you do need to read the front page more .<br>

I think he will introduce a Powermac G5 with dual 2GHz processors and 1 GHz front side bus. Boy, I bet the pre orders for that will go through the roof! <br><br>/2.5 months of bitter sarcasm<br><br>

As Jobs has finally made it over to Europe (wonder if he had to check on a map to see where it was, it's been so long?), maybe he has a Europe-specific announcement; a Euro-based iTunes Music Store, or more likely an iPhoto printing/book tie-in with Kodak. The latter is not particularly important, but it would reassure us European types that Apple is not as US-centric as it often appears. After all the lowest priced G5 offered by the UK Apple Store is 1,318 ($2,107), before tax, compared to $1,999. We pay our way in more than just OS and brand loyalty.<br><br>Whingeing Brits, never met one!<br><br>

Although unfortunately this doesn't seem to be unique to Apple, from what i hear most electronics are more expensive in Europe then in the US. But i haven't exactly been shopping in Europe recently either so i could be mistaken. <br><br>

Yep, the only hope is that the Apple Sotre is still down. <br><br>

Well, he better put out some new Powerbooks or he might as well not come home! I think there would be some people out to get him.<br><br>The online store order status has been down for about 4-5 hours now. During that time some people have received shipping notifications for their dual G5s! Yipeee!<br><br>I wonder if Steve G already cancelled his order?<br><br>Crap, already on to Panther.

Re: Paris keynote - 09/16/03 01:36 AM

I think the powerbook line is long past due for an update (the 15" in particular) and an explanation for the G5's would be nice.<br><br>

Re: Paris keynote - 09/16/03 01:44 AM

That's very true. I guess I'm less interested because I know there is no way in hell I'm going to be able to buy anything for a long while! <br><br>

Re: Paris keynote - 09/16/03 01:46 AM

Same here, but it's something new to drool over at the apple store (as if the G5 wasn't enough). <br><br>

It's only $79 too, with the expected 15% Apple tax in place. <br><br>

Re: Paris keynote - 09/16/03 02:20 AM

I think the prices are euros ie. not $, as the show is in paris, though they are close in terms of exchange rate. <br><br>"For a successful technology, reality must take precedence over public relations, for Nature cannot be fooled." - Richard Feynman

Re: Paris keynote - 09/16/03 06:08 AM

That was quite possibly the most boring show in recent history. A KB & Mouse that everyone who has been on the "Mac Internet" knew about over a month ago, and the PowerBook that everyone knew was coming, a rehash of the press-release on Panther, and no excuses/explanations for the G5... Glad I didn't stay up for that.<br><br>

Re: Paris keynote - 09/16/03 10:10 PM

The Apple forums aren't there for fun, they're there for troubleshooting and discussing things directly related to the use of the Mac and it's software. I don't agree with the way the freely delete posts (and entire threads), but I can see their point - many "newbie" users go there for help, and they shouldn't have to sift through the daily "Bush sucks" type of posts. <br><br>
