An Apple Australia press conference, called to review New York’s Macworld Expo and demonstrate the new iMac machines, has been suddenly canceled. Managing director Diana Ryall has refuted the suggestion that upcoming build-to-order Macs -which will put an end to the local warehousing business – would signal a major staff shakeup. Ryall told Computer Daily News that only four staff would leave the facility, and the warehouse would have some of its capacity used by another organization specializing in logistics, along with an Apple service and parts unit. Ryall did confirm that there would be no iMacs for sale in Australia on August 15 – the worldwide launch date. The units are now expected to be available in early September.
