PowerBook G5 prototype in leu of Macworld due to conditions!

Next update: 11:30 PM

Dear our loyal readers. Originally we had planned live coverage of Macworld Boston and have had some unfortunate setbacks. For starters, Monday started off great. The Rumors crew of 5 picked up some muffins and donuts, and awaited the arrival of Greyhound to Boston. We stashed our bags and laptops in the exterior undercarriage storage of the bus, popped on our iPods and began rocking all the way to Boston a cool 65 MPH.

Everything was great until we hit New Hampshire, then we hit the nail, literally. While cruising at 65 MPH, the Greyhound's front right tire blew like a bomb. Everyone in the bus initially considered the noise to be a terrorist attack on our bus. The bus started swerving wildly until it smacked into the Mobile gas station Quickie Mart along side the interstate, narrowingly missing 2 fuel pumps by about 50 feet. All in all, the driver did a wonderful job forcing the bus to a halt, he saved many lives, including the Rumors crew.

Great news! No one was seriously hurt and older folks were treated for heart conditions. Bad news... the undercarriage storage of the bus had been forced loose, our PowerBooks and 1 Book and 1 prototype Power Book G5 (on lend from grape vine sources) lay on the pavement, in one piece, but severally data damaged.

For the past few days we've spent no small number of hours attempting to recover restitution from Greyhound and find our way into Macworld! We've been sent a limo from Black Light Media to transport us to our suite in the Marriot in Boston for the show. We hope to get some pictures of the Macworld environment shortly and some inside juice from all the vendors.

Rumormongers in the grape vine say a secret Apple source will be in town for the Macworld show because he has to meet with third parties at ATT due to a networking partnership with Apple for the upcoming PowerBook G5!. There is a high probability (50%) that the employee will be carrying a new version of the PowerBook G5 prototype and we have a camera waiting.

Stay Tuned for this breaking story...

Ryan, don't listen to those jokers! keep the SCOOPS coming. Screw think secret and apple insider, you are the man. you can do this ryan, common SCOOP them! I think you got a SCOOP on these Quad Macs! I know you do! Im praying for the Quad Mac! My mom gave me $3400 for my confirmation and I can't wait to Order a Quad Power Mac. I called the AppleStore today to try and get them to let me be put on the quad waitlist, but they said they never heard of the quad waitlist. I asked if could be the first one to be sent a Quad if I left them a deposit of 2 grand and have them call me when the quad comes. they said they have never heard of a Quad Power Mac and don't expect any, but that is exactly what I expected them to say. you scooped everyone on this, the Quad mac is coming. When the Apple rep said their was no Quad mac, he cleared his throat first and then stubmled on his words! I CANT Wait. I only wish i was in the grape vine, your updates sometimes are DAYS apart! But Ryan! YOU THE MAN! SCOOOP AWAY

So let me guess, now you're taking donations for new machines as well?

I have read my share of rumor pages and have always been a fan of MacOSRumors. I have always found your site (if this really is the folks from MacOSRumors and not some yanking everyone’s collective chain) to be interesting, fun and often an informative read.

But I have got to say that either you guys are the unluckiest bunch of people in the world or the worst liars in the entire world!

I know what some of you will say, don’t read the site or don’t complain. But you have to admit all the crashes, damaged Power Books, Quad G5s, bizarre %’s is all a little much. And certainly not anywhere near as humorous as either As the Apple Turns or Crazy Apple Rumors.

Have fun, but get funnier!

dammit i cant believe what douches all you MOSR guys are. you cant even write proper articles anymore and it all just seems to be an update of what has gone wrong lately. PBg5 prototype...come on! If you have your cameras ready for the next prototype, why not just take a pic of the one you currently have and show us. Im starting to think the 'grape vine' is non existant... (92.564% probability)

People, stop asking for pictures!
You have to understand that even if Ryan has pictures, he cannot possibly post them.

Not only would Apple sue him for the release of trade secrets, they would also sue for lost business, claiming that people waited with their PowerBook G4 purchases after they saw the PB G5 pictures. And if the new PBs look as sharp as Ryan says, Apple might actually have a point.
Any such lawsuit lost would be very expensive!

So let's be reasonable. He can't post any pictures. Even if he has them.
And unfortunately now that Ryan publicly claimed to have them he can't even leak them via some other route as any picture surfacing on the net would point straight back to him as a prime suspect.

"Artist's renditions" are the thin fine line he might be able to walk. But nothing more than that.

Um actually, the most that would happen is a cease and desist letter arriving in the mailbox of MacOSRumors.
Happens all the time to MacRumors, ThinkSecret, also confirming rumors at the same time.
If MOSR doesnt get one, then obviously its false, because Apple doesn't give a shit.
I cant believe half you people actually believe the crud on MOSR...its just making me laugh like crazy because its so false.
