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.
