An Archive reader sent along the following specs for Jobs’ product introductions Monday. Do we believe them? Well, SpyMac apparently received the same e-mail, believing they were the only ones who got it. What’s intriguing is the “CompUSA price” listed at the bottom and the part numbers: could this be another trademark Jobs misinformation campaign? Only time will tell. For Entertainment Purposes Only, here it is.

Uncharacteristically for the folks from Cupertino, Apple seems anxious to fuel rumors around Monday’s keynote rather than quell them, with phrases on its homepage like: “This is Big.

I wanted to correct the story on the replacement deal at CompUSA. I work for a division of CompUSA and used to be a Mac Tech in one of their stores. The replacement plan works like this, if your product fails you bring it in to us and we determine whether it is more cost effective to replace or repair the product. If it cheaper to replace it than repair it we then put it in for replacement and are replacement SKU and dollar amount. If the customer wishes to upgrade they can take a gift certificate and apply it to the purchase of anything else in the store. The plan is not a trade in and trade up plan. I do not want your readers to go into a CompUSA and purchase the replacement plan and be disappointed when a few months or years later want to upgrade and told it does not work that way.
