That's the strategy Microsoft practices.. it would be a bad move.
Ok, first, if Leopard is as revolutionary as Apple wants us to think, then it's probably a really strange build that they're seeding to the developers. A mixed build that has a lot of Tiger still in it. I can imagine a couple of bugs are sprouting from that procedure too. But ok. Leopard will come as 10.5. And a month or two later there will be the first 10.5.1 update. The 10.5 will have bugs, yes.. but doesn't every major release contain a handful of bugs? 30 more or...
I like the commercial! It reminds me of one of the first iPod commercials, with that guy starting to dance at home =) But... I'm not usually picky like this, but let's be picky for a change, hehe: Has this Apple TV a wireless connecttion to the TV? All I see is the power cable. And the white power-on-diode is not lit. So is the Apple TV on at all? Or perhaps it's powered via HDMI? That would be something =)
I'd consider a 3G phone the day there is an operator that can offer me data transfer at a set monthly fee. Not charge per MB. I know this is just about happening this year, but still: until it happens I have no interest in 3G, and I think an Edge iPhone with wifi is good enough.
I also think Apple's gonna choose a dual drive, it would be the best consumer choise since Microsoft won't give up over the PS3 Blu-Ray install base. But what's the rush.. the iTunes store will have more movies to offer than either BR or HD-DVD will offer for some time. I bet Apple will try and push people in that direction initially. Not that they're HD but.. it's all ready for HD, and the Apple TV plays 720p. I bet Apple will introduce their first HD downloads when...
"about an exciting new digital offering" sounds like a little announcement. I'm sure Beatles on iTunes is a big announcement for a lot of people, but for me it's just another release. A little announcement. But why would Steve Jobs be there to tell a crowd of journalists that The Beatles is now on iTunes? That sounds too small a news piece for Steve to fly over to London. In order of it being an "exciting" offering I think the announcement should include a little surprise....
Yeah, Director. What about Director? Dig up some rumors about that, AI. Director has always been paiinfully slow on Mac OS X. I hope they're giving it a huge boost for intel macs, and that they clean up the UI and stuff.
Dual boot for Vista is not a problem. To push Leopard's release date back 5 months in order to get dual boot to work just seemed like a silly report to start with. Of course it'll work for anyone who's interested. No, a 5-6 month delay would mean Apple decided to incorporate technology still under consideration. But that could be introduced as a later update. If the original report holds any truth at all it could hint at something else coming this october, like touch...
Releasing Leopard without widespread beta testing seems very risky. But perhaps Apple has expanded their own beta testing team to the extent that it is producing the same beta testing results as the external developers do. The Leopard builds Apple are feeding the developers with probably contain Leopard code, but if Apple is gonna live up its own Leopard hype these builds are probably just for beta testing the changes of the core of Mac OS X, like hardware, audio, graphics...
A true video iPod can't be introduced before the iPhone. It can't really be introduced before the iPhone's European launch either. It would mess too much with the whole iPhone launch. I think gradually the iPhone will take over the iPod as we know it today. And a next generation device that is between iPod and laptop could take over as an ultimate choise for watching video and working while you travel. Like a 9" multitouch tablet with full OS X.
