Isn't that three?

In any case...


Holographic displays?
That would be way beyond, now, wouldn't it?

Isn't there somewhere around zero chance this could happen? (not being sarcastic--aren't we really a few years away from this, at least?)


New power sources

As in fuel cells for iBooks?

90 hours of battery life would be way beyond.

New input devices

I'm not putting on any body suit, even if Steve Jobs made it for me by hand.

Why no body suit? Body suits would be cool.

How about G5 wearable panties: "thighMAC" with slot for ipod insertion.

I have a feeling this thread is either about to get a lot of quick edits by mods or a deletion.

Hmm I like that idea. There was a story about fuel cells on macnn.com on sunday. (see <a href="http://news.cnet.com/news/0-1006-200-8308078.html?tag=mn_hd)" target="_blank">http://news.cnet.com/news/0-1006-200-8308078.html?tag=mn_hd</a>)

I think it may still be a little way off though from reading that page... "Toshiba hopes to make a fuel-cell battery that turns methanol directly into electricity and that could be available to the public within two years, Mizoguchi said."

Maybe Apple have been developing one in secret and will update the whole portable line with them. Now that would be way beyond.

Fuel cells work off Hydrogen & Oxygen? So the fuel is Water? or is that a byproduct?

Dear Lord this thread is turning pornographic. In the interest of keeping the REAL thread alive here, here goes:

Booyah! A holographic display or a PRACTICAL application of holographic storage would definitely be worth Apple's big hype pronouncments recently.
We wouold have heard about advancements made in optical storage already, though. There's no way Apple could keep a lid on ALL the companies making headway in this direction. There are a bunch. I wouldn't mind having an indestructible crystal to carry around in my pocket, capable of holding a nice even terabyte. Hmm... I wonder how fast that would be at writes and rewrites...

As for a holographic display... it sounds really cool, but it isn't really all that practical. You need a holographic projecting device, a nice blank space or wall in front of you, and a wicked fast graphics processor. What's the point in having it on a desktop machine? There are wonderful Cinema displays recently produced by Apple for those. And somehow I thnk a holographic projector weighs too much for use in a SuperBook.

So, looks like of these two, holographic memory/storage is more likely.

As for power sources, I personally don't like fuel cells. Hydrogen is DANGEROUS. And unless you want to go back to your local Apple Store every 100 hours or whatever to refill your PowerBook, you need to buy whole canisters of the stuff. Damn dangerous. Especially near hot microprocessors.
