iCal, iDVD, Rumors and Deep Thoughts

As many have noted, iCal has been quietly updated to 1.0.2 -- up from version 1.0.1 released just a few days ago. Changes include bug fixes for those in Australia, New Zealand, and Hawaii.

Despite reports that iDVD has been updated... it appears some people were not aware that iDVD 2.1 was released back in July. The iDVD 2.1 Upgrade is not new.

Strange things are afoot at the Circle-K.... er... CompUSA that is... one Appleinsider user reports that the San Francisco CompUSA is being significantly updated:

    "There were Apple people in there completely revamping the area today.. seemed that the iBooks and Powerbooks were missing, but they may have just been cleaning them. The area was roped off. The upstairs Apple store within a store was completely ripped out down to the walls and floor. The windows are covered over and say that they appologize for the mess (ok I paraphrase) but that a new display is on the way. "

However - one CompUSA employee writes that all stores are simply redoing their layouts and Powerbooks and iBooks are simply being moved. Note: even software introductions or Airport introductions could prompt new displays and may not represent anything more significant.

LoopRumors.com posts information about a claimed tablet-like Device from Apple: "Apparently it will be a digital lifestyle device, and not necessarily an iPod, but rather similar to an iPod."

And finally... a quote from one of the users in the MacRumors IRC conference to help you through these tense times pre-MacWorld:



    Do you think that we are all running around wandering about and looking for the thing from Apple that will make us happy... but the funny thing is what makes us happy, is the fond memories we are creating in the process?

One more day... :)
