    "Distract?" Really?

    Has this ever happened before: That somebody leaked exactly which announcements will be made? I don't believe it. Because the source is bad and because this has never happened before.



    Is it?



    Well, I'm still waiting for the "critique" or anything resembling a "critical discussion" or "analysis of".



    Instead what I read was a sarcastic, childish insult.



    Maybe if the story broke on Olberman the OP might not get so tight in the panties over it, hmm?

    I will be disappointed if they don't announce a rev to the MacBook Pros. I'm in the market, but I don't want to pull the trigger with release cycle tradition suggesting they'll be updated.



    I somehow doubt the tablet will perform the same functions as a MBP, so I don't think it'll serve to replace it.



    Tablet = March-ish

    iPhone OS 4 = June-ish



    They need to give us *something* this month. I say rev the specs on the MBs.

    Oh... I like the implications of that!



    1) runs on Mac, Tablet, iPod Touch/iPhone (newer devices)



    2) use touch devices with non-touch Macs



    3) included with purchase of device (iLife) or minimal add-on (iWork)



    4) update cycle changed from annual to feature-related



    5) available through app store

    It would be interesting because it's a complaint I here now and then when it come to the Mac.

    Just a hunch.



    I have a feeling that iLfe '10 will work on the tablet.



    Isn't it funny how they can't help but inject their ideology into every aspect of everything they do/see/read/hear? I am amazed that the mere mention of Fox causes so many of them to begin blurting noises and puffing about like a bunch of territorially-challenged chimpanzees.

    Could be. Just seems a bit strange to me. As has already been pointed out, iWork is a better fit for the tablet and necessary for it's function, iLife, not so much. Also, paint apps are traditionally included in suites like iWork and iWork is the modern incarnation of AppleWorks which had a paint program, and said paint program is the only thing "missing" from iWork as a traditional suite of apps.



    That being said Apple is not such a traditional company, so who knows. Just seems odd to re-do iLife or to clutter up the tablet announcement with an extraneous thing like that. You'd think with the tablet being announced that the focus would be totally on the tablet and things that make it a good buy or useful, i.e. - iWork, not iLife.

    No iSlate or Tablet.



    Larger iPod Touch and iPhone, color plastic backing, more storage, optional stylus.



    Mac updates with newer processors.

    Nothing would distract from the main event. That is why it is the main event... Any other product announcements will be temporarily forgotten after the tablet announcement though.

    Because we all know the iTablet/Slate is an imaginary product.



    Move along folks, nothing to see here.



    Yep... Anyone with two eyes can clearly see its a fake and a pretty bad one at that...

    "Serious" work? I guess by serious you mean laptop or desktop. My guess is that your right the tablet will most likely run a version of iwork. But I'm not sure it will be as powerful as a laptop or desktop.



    We're going to find out whats what real soon though.

    Followed by the biggest one day decline in AAPL ever.

    Funny, I trust Fox more than the others because they're not afraid to talk bad about their owners if they have to.

    But, for gawd's sake please lets talk about the tablet hmm?

    Yeah right!

    So what is the link between the new device, iLife and iPhone OS 4? Would Apple do a special event like this to launch three disparate products? Doesn't seem very elegant to me. They should probably all tie together somehow.

    Do you think they will just demo iPhone OS 4.0 or release it to the general public?

    Perhaps there is an iLife version for the tablet.

    On the contrary, the original poster had merely criticized the journalistic integrity of a news source. You are the one who is bringing ideology into this.
