Vintage Rumormongering! Amazon's PowerMac G5 Specs Leak Just Brings Back Good Memories



Before Think Secret, before AppleInsider, before The PowerPage made up rumors ...

things like Amazon accidentally putting PowerMacs up for order happened.

These were the good ole days - where we found out about products in advance the right way. We didn't coerce Apple developers and design partners. We didn't break non disclosure agreements. We didn't go against state and federal law by breaking the rules of the Uniform Trade Secret Act.

Occasionally, we can be reminiscent of such days when someone finds code buried deep inside the HTML of the Apple website



Yep, just like the good ole days of rumormongering - like when MacMall or MacWarehouse would accidentally release a sales catalog with an unreleased Apple product. Amazon released the as yet unreleased PowerMac G5 specs.

Mac OS X10.4
