Mac OS X Leopard in the Philippines


Today is October 26 2007 in Philippine soil. In about a day’s time, Apple will make its biggest operating system announcement in the form of Leopard. The countdown on the Apple website current reads 17 hours to go. By that time I’ll be in Davao for the Mindanao Bloggers Summit, which means that I won’t be able to watch the keynote. I mean really, its not Leopard that I’m waiting for – great as the software is, this isn’t a scoop. It’s the anticipation of the new line of MacBook hardware that Steve Jobs MIGHT announce. I can hear him say it now:

“Mac OS X Leopard is available now for a retail price of $149.00. Oh and just one more thing … the new line of MacBooks will ship with Leopard starting today.”

But what about the local launch of Leopard? Well, I have the official date from the email invitation. Mac OS X Leopard will be launched on November 8 2007 in the Philippines.

November 8 2007.

November 8 2007.

November eight two thousand and seven. Venue and time to be announced.

See you MacHeads there! 🙂

Um, isn’t there a grand launch at 6 pm today at PowerMac Center in Greengelt? I got an invite, and I was told it’s part of the worldwide launch today. The thread has been up on PhilMUG for some days now. What’s the difference between this evening’s event and the one on Nov 8?

Ah, I think I’ve had enough of press events. Buti na lang I don’t work for media anymore. I enjoy user events more these days. 🙂
