There's no lag like jet lag...

That's right, in just a few short hours I'll be in the air, on my way to Sydney, Australia.

Posting will almost stop, with maybe a "hello" or two during my three week stay Down Under.

But what should you do in my absence? (who knows, maybe someone out there is actually wondering this) Well I've thought up a list of various things that'll make these three weeks just fly by.

- Listen to public radio. My favorite shows are Whadaya Know? (and I realize I probably spelled it wrong), Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me, and the Annoying Music Show (which is just two minutes long).

- Read Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. It's a good read for young people and not young people alike. And if you read Order and still have nothing to do, try reading the first four (again, if you've already read them).

- Go outside. I know this sounds strange, but there's lots of nice things outside. You could take a walk to an internet café, or take your laptop to a Wi-Fi "hotspot".

- Try Vanilla Coke. If you haven't already tried this tasty beverage, you should.

- Go to a Steak and Shake. You might have to drive to another state, but it's worth it. Yes, steakburgers are just that good.

- Johnny English looks good.

- Collect some Snapple caps for the "Snapple Yard Sale". At least visit the Snapple website (it's cool).

- Take a vacation. You've earned one.

And finally...
- Read As the Apple Turns. It's damn funny.

Now I should point out that I'm well aware that my posting has slowed down quite a bit recently. Yeah. That's it. Actually, I'll mention that posting should really catch up with a regular-ish schedule shortly after I get back (and then we can just let the good times roll!).

Of course, you might want to check back here every now and then (as I mentioned earlier, I'll try and post a couple things over the next few weeks), but you should head on over to Mac Rumors to stay "up to date" on the latest Mac stuff.

So, I'll close this post with a G'day, and since I won't be posting for a while, a G'Afternoon, G'Evening, and G'Night.

Those freakin' Powerbooks!

Yes, I'm back from my little trip (and a funeral too bizzare to even be an episode of Six Feet Under), and there are still no Powerbooks!

Sheesh.

Of course, rumors of new Powerbook hints are flying out of the reseller world. So, I'd expect new Powerbooks in the coming weeks, probably while I'm on vacation (oh well...).

Just a day away...

As you're probably aware, tomorrow is Greg Jowasiak's Macworld Presentation. It's at 9:30 a.m. eastern time, and I suggest getting the latest details from Mac Rumors. I'll be en route for an unexpected trip.

Explanations, and etc.

First off, I'm going to just quickly apologize for my recent total lack of posting. I've got a lot stuff to do to get ready for my big trip (which will just about freeze all posting for three weeks, with maybe a couple of "G'day!"s from internet cafés).

Anyway, I've also encountered a bit of an unexpected emergency and I'll be gone on Wednesday and Thursday of this week, too. While I had planned to post a new issue of the Edition this week, I can't make any promises now (truth be told, I probably won't have time).
