I've just been corrected: This is actually Day 6 of Apple Hype Watch�. Seems I missed one day of hype, and foolishly assumed that it all started on January 1st, even though I saw it with my own eyes on December 31st. Shame on me.

In any case, the real list is as follows:

Day 1: "This one is big. Even by our standards."

Day 2: "Count the days. Count the minutes. Count on being blown away."

Day 3: "Beyond the rumor sites. Way beyond."

Day 4: "It's like a backstage pass to the future."

Day 5: "To go where no PC has gone before."

Day 6: "Full speed ahead. Lust factor ten."

And that's day 6, Saturday the 5th of January. Only one more day of all-hype-and-no-substance until the keynote that will either blow us away, or turn me into a Linux user. Okay, well, maybe not, considering Final Cut Pro only runs on the Mac. Maybe it's time to start training on Maya�
