All in all, the keynote audience was very pleased with the iBook except for two points: pricing and availability. At $1599, $400 more than the iMac, I think the iBook is reasonably priced for a consumer portable, but more than people had hoped for. TFT displays and six-hour batteries don’t come cheap, after all. I’m sure Apple is just as disappointed as we are that the iBook won’t be available to start the school year, but if they coulda done it, they woulda.

Worker bee's betrayal of iBook secrets

Starting in February 2000 websites like appleinsider and ZDnet seemed to be well informed about upcoming Apple products including iBooks, the Power Mac G4 and the Pro Mouse . The specs of the Second Edition Clamshells, which should be introduced in Paris in September 2000 were published in summer.

After some investigation it turned out that a young man who had a temporary job in the Quality Assurance at Apple named Juan Gutierrez was the one who sent emails to journalists signed with the pseudo "Worker bee".
