Once again it’s time for the annual pilgrimage to your nearest Apple Store to celebrate a new release of Mac OS X. Yes, Friday, Oct. 24 is the evening that Panther hits the streets.
If you don’t have an Apple Store within reach, or you’re just not a special event kind of person, then you can comfortably order your copy directly from Apple online.
But for those of you who want to get a little more action for your 129 bucks, the “Night of Panther” events are the way to go. Yes, you’ve heard the stories from years past about Mac faithful getting in line, sharing anecdotes, and checking out others who were just crazy enough to spend their Friday night hanging out in malls across this great land with other OS X gearheads.
So this year, let’s make it easy to compare notes.
If you participate in a Night of Panther event, afterward, please post a talkback here and tell us what you saw. How many people? What were they like? What did you talk about? And most importantly, were there any freebies?
Photo buffs can include a link to their site. We don’t care if they’re just regular snapshots; we what to see what happened in your town. All pictures are welcome as long as they don’t include any obscene or offensive gestures, body parts that should otherwise be covered up, or Windows PCs.
if you can’t attend a Night of Panther event, be sure to stop by here over the weekend to see what others saw. I’d love to have a report from every Apple Store.
Post your Night of Panther report here. Be sure to include which Apple Store you’re reporting about. Please keep it brief and to the point. Include photo links if you can.
