Mac Expo 2007 Expectations

Recommended Posts

I wanted the iPhone (again) and it likely won't be happening (again).

Some people think it was just falsified hype of the Linksys iPhone (lame).

 

They will likely release some iTV (although I hear that's not what it's called and that it isn't quite ready). I'm expecting Leopard to go on sale Jan. 9th the day of the keynote. I'm looking forward to Spaces, 64bit-ness some spotlight improvements, and anything that makes iCal more useable (*cough*), but I'm not sure I care much about the rest. I'm also expecting a new iPod... larger screen... wireless... maybe.

 

I have no clue who the musical guest will be... Steve* always shocks me with his choices.

*I predict he will be wearing a pair of dad jeans.

I would hope that this means more than just some wack cell phone or the announcement of a delayed product or another not-so-notable OS rev. If anybody can back a rep for dropping huge stuff without anyone expecting it, it's Apple. Then again, maybe Steve will be cuffed and escorted out off the stage by the Dept. of the Treasury agents.

The thing I like about Apple is that I still don't know what's going to disappoint me. With Microsoft I've known all along.

Dang, only two comments in and it's already been turned into an OS-bashing topic. Tsk tsk... For Shame. :D

 

[HYPE] Me? I don't care about no stinkin' phones, DVR or iPods. I just want Apple to update their pretty little 15 inch MacBook Pros to have a 7200 RPM drive (for kicks) and full-sized keyboard (for my spider-like/carpal-tunnel fingers) like the some of the new HPs have. I've been saving for a desktop replacement portable for a while now and that would be a cementing factor. Hey, I'm a modest man. [/HYPE]

Supposedly they are demo'ing it at MWSF. Interesting that they're bringing Encore to mac as well. I suppose this is in response to Apple's Final Cut Studio package. Maybe if Premiere allows you to import FCP timelines you can then import that into After Effects instead of using Automatic Duck.

 

Has anyone tried the Soundbooth beta?

• itv: I think I heard it is still delayed --but there will probably be a big preview

 

• iphone: Will not be called iphone because someone else owns that trademark, but this will probably be the crown jewel of the show

 

• New apple spread sheet app

 

• Leopard = still not done yet

 

• Probably a new ipod of some sort, maybe with some Zune wireless feature

 

• More DRM'd TV shows and movies for the itunes store (probably in conjunction with itv)

 

• New ibarf = barfbag for all the overexcited fanboys/girls who cannot contain themselves

 

• Steve Jobs will use the new Leopard time machine feature to go back in time and backdate more stock options

They have to have something for people to buy. Rumor has it it's leopard. Luxology should have some neat additions to Modo announced too for the 3d nerds like myself.

 

ohh and I've heard rumors of 50" screens. That would be insane.

I would be very surprised if Leopard weren't done by now.

I don't think Modo has had enough time to complete a good solid upgrade.

50" screens... is pure absurdity.

I wonder what the res would be on a 50". Must be higher than 1920x1080, but not too high because you would need to sit further away to see the whole thing. I think it would be hilarious to work on something like that. If they do release them it would have to be more geared towards iTV stuff.

They won't have a product ready, but they have scheduled an announcement Jan 10th. Some tech preview stuff. I know they are adding zbrush like sculpting tools.

The 50" would have to be higher than 2560 which is what the 30" is at (or close to). I've heard rumors of displays to handle RED footage, but 4k is a long way off in a cost effective display if you ask me.

Well I've never been so happy to be wrong.

Get your iBarfs ready you iPhone haters... the Keynote will be up later today. ;)

 

We'll see if I was right about the dad jeans.

That phone is totally hot!

 

Too bad I'm not a phone-lover, cuz I'd be dropping the cash if I were. (Right after I pay my freelancer taxes, of course.) Also, too bad I'm not a Cingular-lover.

 

;)

 

I wonder if Apple hired the dudes who made the iTalk video a while ago?
