    Seeing how his statment is based off of the repeated cycle that is the mac rumor mill, it’s merely a simple statement of observation.

  2. This is just an observation; but the record of ‘getting it right’ of Think Secret and Appleinsider must be over 60% and when they say the sources are ‘very reliable’ then it’s somewhere over 90%.

  3. JEG: Steve’s modus operandi is to always have one or two vendors on stage with him when he does stuff like that. You can expect that he will either have either or both the head of Microsoft’s MBU and the chairman of Adobe up there announcing Universal Binary versions of their key apps. The question is whether they will be new versions or .1 revisions.
