    i remember hearing there was an announce date on saturday april 1st?

    is this true and does anyone have any ideas?

    I'm guessing an Intel iBook and something else. maybe 6G iPod, but i doubt it.

    Apple's 30th anniversary in addition to April Fool's Day.

    Yeah, it was announced shortly after the Mac mini and iPod Hifi press conference that another annoucement would come around April 1st since it was the company's 30th anniversary. It was never confirmed by Apple, but everyone has guessed that now would be a good time for the iBook's to be released since now is the time many student and educational organizations make their decisions on purchases for the next school year.

    I think something will be released by the end of next week. How's Tuesday sound?

    I would have been amazed if Apple announced a new product like an Intel iBook or a widescreen video iPod out of the blue on a weekend. There isn't enough media that works on the weekend to get the the free publicity they want. Other than doing stuff at major expos (and even then the keynotes are usually on Friday, i.e. during the week) they're smart enough to keep all product announcements for weekdays.

    You are a sucka for thinking they would just drop a product on a weekend. Apple is run by hippies. No way in hell they are going to drop a product when they could be out enjoying some music. Chances are that they had a big party at the corporate headquarters with BBQ, music, peace, love and happiness.
