Channel News, PowerMacs, and Q6/Blackrider?

Think Secret fills in some details about current distribution channel trends.

Previous reports of 1.42GHz product depletion are confirmed as well as a new report that 1GHz machines are also being cleared from the channel. Also confirmed are "mystery box" shipments to Apple stores.

Some questions are still left unanswered, however -- with ThinkSecret also suggesting that PowerMac release availability could be limited to entry level machines alone for the first month. The article also discusses the possibilities of 15inch PowerBooks and other software updates.

A mystery hardware product and OS update -- known as Q6 and Blackrider-- is also referenced as a potential upcoming release in ThinkSecret's article, but few details are known.
