6.1.07

3 miles on the mill. Have an opportunity to run a couple of laps around the Rock tonight but don’t know if I will do that or not.

Interesting news on the WWDC front: New rumors abound! The first is that the new MacBook Pro updates will be released before the conference scheduled to begin on June 11. It seems that Apple has an Education Back to School program which launches next week and the updates will be released early to coincide with that… well, you read the rumor:

While we had heard convincing reports that the MacBook Pro updates would have to wait until WWDC (June 11th), a few new reports have started trickling in that the MacBook Pro could see updates as soon as this Tuesday (June 5th).

Mac4ever.com (French) posts the following from a reseller (roughly translated):

There’s some news. We’ve just ordered the new MBP ! Launch expected for next Tuesday… But Apple didn’t say anything about the specifications. We have to order blind-eyed… If I’ve got some other news, I’ll keep you informed.

This information alone would not necessarily be convincing, as resellers tend not to have much lead time on new products… but a few other tidbits we’ve heard leads us believe that this could be legitimate.

Sources are unclear if this will be the LED / Santa Rosa updates that users have been hoping for, and some sources still insist we will have to wait until WWDC for the new MacBook Pro.

Update: There is some speculation that Apple may be releasing MacBook Pros next week rather than at WWDC to coincide with their Educational Back to School Program which launches next week. (If Apple waited until WWDC, the MacBook Pro specs would change a week into the Back to School promotion.)

Another rummer, now brace yourself, this one is WILD! NEW MACS to SHIP w/VISTA

I told you it was WILD!

So some other…bloggers and I were discussing this unlikely rumor, and we started to realize something: With core elements of Vista in place on Intel hardware, it wouldn’t be much of a stretch to imagine OS X running Windows apps. Then, by chance, I ran across this article at Mac Daily News posits the very idea, and that this could be the way big secret Steve is keeping for WWDC. Bootcamp 2 isn’t in the current preview of Leopard, nor are many other expected toys. We still think the whole thing is a little suspicious, but what a possibility it creates, no?

This is probably the most insane Apple rumor we’ve ever heard… But in the interest of generating site traffic, and to secure bragging rights of being “first!” if it’s somehow real, and because we’re reckless, we bring it to you now.

Our Trusted, Reliable Source™ at the WSJ’s D conference…was chatting with some other PR types who work for Apple... He/She said they were nervous over Mr. Jobs accidentally spilling Leopard secrets two weeks before its official unveiling at WWDC. The source said something jokingly about how it’s really a re-designed version of Vista, and, to their surprise, the PR type said, “No, Vista runs great on the new Macs by itself, and Bootcamp 2 lets us ship it as an add-on option for dual-boot.” Or something to that effect.

We’re thinking the Apple PR person was messing with our source, the idea is to run ideas up the flagpole to see if they fly. We really don’t see any Macs shipping with dual-boot to Windows anytime soon, but Steve has surprised us before, so who knows? We mark the likelihood as very low, but stranger things have happened…
