It's smack-dab in the middle of September, the 15th. Leopard is SUPPOSED to be out NEXT MONTH.

Yet, I haven't seen any release date for Leopard or ANYTHING.

Leopard HAS TO BE AT LEAST CLOSE TO being “gold” now.

So Apple, WHAT'S THE DEAL??????

They dont usually establish a release date before something new comes out...

My guess it will be 10/5 for the 10.5 version release - Just to good to miss.

What does this mean exactly? Apple HAS been coming out with new things. iMac, iLife, iWork, and iPod.

Sorry, your explanation makes no sense to me.

I doubt it. I would think if it's that early in the month that Apple would announce that already.

I hope that you're right though.

What he's saying is that Apple doesn't announce their releases. They just release them most of the time. That's why nobody knew about the new iMacs until their release date. He wasn't saying that Apple never releases anything new.

They don't publicly announce a release date. When it comes out, it will come out and nobody (outside of Apple) will know when that is until that day comes.

Companies who publish a specific release date almost always are asking for trouble. They say it will "come out in October" to help them work out all of the shipping errors and make sure that the software is ready to sell at their retailers before they give any kind of real date for it.

So expect an announcement like they always do with their products...sometime near the end of October. We all know when it's due out...so just CHILL and wait til it's release. It's just a piece of software, and your life does not depend on it.

(If it does, you really should seek help. )

iMac, iLife, iWork and new iPods were not pre-announced by Apple.

It's not complicated - Apple rarely pre-announce anything (the iPhone is an ovbious example of when they do). You'll know when Leopard is out because they'll tell you.

Lol, he's got you there

I guess software is a great deal more important to some people than you might initially think.

Actually, didn't they pre-announce both Panther and Tiger by quite some time?

At least I remember big countdown clocks on apple.com as well as 'Tiger nights' in stores the day Tiger was released...

You're exactly right Craig.

So don't dismiss something just because it's unimportant to you. It might be VERY IMPORTANT to others!
