The Mac Observer Spin: As we have learned since Mr. Jobs took the helm at Apple in 1997, he usually uses Keynotes as an opportunity to announce new products or other momentous events at Apple. With the recent rumors of delays in the schedule of the P1, perhaps this will be where Apple "rolls out" the P1. However, our favorite prediction would be faster Blue & White G3s with a big possibility of new G4s being announced. It could even be hoped, though it is doubtful, that Mr. Jobs could announce Blue & White models with more than 3 PCI slots. Blue & White PowerMacs are ideal for this market. Hey, doesn't Blue & White G4s sound pretty good? YOU BET IT DOES! ;-)
