February 09, 2010 – Apple Store is Down for Updates.

Update: Apple introduces Aperture 3

It’s 4:00 AM and I’m still awake, don’t know why.

Anyway, Apple Store is down for updates. I bet they’re going to add the fabled 16-core MacBook Pro today…errr…that doesn’t really exist. I’m really hoping a Quad-Core MacBook Pro.

Based on the circulating rumors, Core i5 and Core i7 MacBook Pro is coming really soon.

Now, if only I could get that one company the salary they owe me, I could immediately buy the 16-core MacBook Pro.

Apple’s “Come see our latest creation.” Live Coverage links.

As usual, a lot of eyes will be glued to the screen during Apple Special Event. This time it would be no different. Apple’s “Come see our latest creation.” event begins at 10:00 AM Pacific Time on Wednesday 27th, 2010

Most of us do not get any invitations from Apple to the Special Event at Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco, thus we can “participate” by going to on or more of the followings:

I’ll add more links as they are found.

The “fake” info:

According to an imaginary source who claimed to be a high ranking Apple Executive that is definitely not Tim Cook, this new Apple “creation” would have the following:

  • 6.75-inch x 8.72-inch dimension, thickness was not disclosed.
  • 6.375-inch x 8.345-inch screen size.

So far, that was all the info given by this all-made-up-mysterious-Apple-Executive who is definitely not Phil Schiller. Remember that the nimber given was not an accurate measurement of the device itself due to some rounding errors.

Apple has been leaking out some fake info and we were foolish enough to report it even though we know they are fake. It will be narrower then the dimension we reported earlier. This we know, the new device Apple will be revealing on Wednesday will have the Apple logo in portrait orientation just like the iPhone. All in good fun.

Slayer Postpones Tour, Tom Araya to Undergo Back Surgery.

American Carnage Tour featuring Slayer, Megadeth and Testament is put on hold. Slayer’s Tom Araya is scheduled to undergo back surgery (anterior cervical discectomy with fusion) at the end of January 2010. The procedure is relatively routine and has an excellent recovery rate.

Statement from Megadeth camp:

American Carnage Tour Postponed

The much anticipated American Carnage Tour, featuring hard rock behemoths Megadeth, Slayer and Testament has been postponed as Slayer’s bassist/vocalist Tom Araya is in need of back surgery.

While disappointed by the tour’s delay, Megadeth are concerned for Araya and wish him a speedy recovery.

Megadeth are currently scheduling a U.S. headline run for March and April, and are rescheduling the American Carnage tour for Summer ’10. Anyone who has purchased an American Carnage ticket can hold onto it until the new dates are announced. Please visit www.megadeth.com for the latest updates.

As of this posting, no words from Slayer.net yet.

We wish Tom Araya a successful surgery and speedy recovery. SLAYER!!!!!!!
