The iObject, EG?

After pondering the days events for the last few hours, especially the crowd reaction to Steve getting all touchy feely with his iPhone, I find myself wondering how long it might be before they could get a full version of OS X running on a tablet thingy, smoothly enough to make Bill Gates publicly admit he never did get it? Or maybe on a floating, flat panel iMac, would be a better description?

I think something around the size of a 12 - 15 inch laptop would suit me just fine for starters. Get a couple of nice big display screens - one for the living area to go with my Apple TV and one for the bedroom. I presume there'll be a reborn, firebreathingly fast cube any tick for those who want added grunt to run their OS X multi-touch portable controlled technological wonderland.

Hell, if they can get that much shit in a phone, I'm half-tempted to start licking buttons on the powerbook screen in case it's been multitouch all along and Apple have just been foxing.

After today, you must turn out to be right sooner or later. Next time my mouse or keyboard give me any trouble, I'll just sneer and think "Ha! Your days are numbered buddy!"

When I say the iPhone is the 'Mac' of the future...it's riddled with ramifications.

The implications of the iPhone just made the Mac line so 20th Century. If that's what they have for the iPhone? :O

New imacs with the new faster wireless standard.

The display is removable and can be used as a tablet around the house / office. The wireless bandwith is fast inough to transmit to the display.

The display will incorperate the new touchscreen tech so that no keyboard is required.

The harddrive and most of the internals will be at the display dock and the display will have minimal powerdraw so as to limit weight from the batteries.

The display can be docked in multiple locations and controlled with a remote, one that also incoperates the touch screen interface.

Multiple displays around the house served by one?

The blimbs will distribute starbucks to the birds as they fly by.

My airtunes will still be flacky.

Ok. Back to take my punishment.

Seriously, I was terribly misguided or at least my source was.
I do really, really know Apple people and I was terribly (or intentionally) misguided.
They did came through with the 802.n Airport update, but it was terribly short (inexistent) on all other guesses.
Maybe these hardware updates will come sooner rather than later.
While the 8 core MacPro is a VERY PREDICTABLE product, I think the new iMac, which I STILL believe will be a rather different animal, will show up soon. I was told to expect a SPECIAL DISPLAY with this iMac and that it would seriously please the Tablet fans.
Again, I don't know.
One thing is for sure, I was blown away with the iPhone and I had ZERO info on it.
Despite the early rants about the GSM, 3G , contract plans, Not available in Europe etc, etc, this is a HUGE product in all senses. We shall see. I love it.

Now we know what to expect on the next iteration of the iPod Video, right ? Just take away the phone mess, and watch. It will be fun.

Thanks for the effort, comments and replies to the riddles. It was really fun to me, too.
Best Regards and a tremendous 2007 year to all.

The idea (or is that iDea? ) of an iMac with a detachable or portable tablet style screen, with a base station is fantastic - it would solve much of my perennial dilemma of desktop or portable... I hope your source was right about that, even if it didn't come out this week.

My guess is that Apple decided that Leopard, new Macs and the iPhone was just too much for one event. As a PR guy that makes sense to me. It's why I thought beforehand we wouldn't get the iPhone this week. Well, my reasoning was half right! And it makes sense for new macs to come at the same time as leopard rather than with the iPhone.

I now expect a special event in 2/3 months time announcing Leopard, iLife/iWork '07 (which I think will have plenty of Leopard specific functions, hence the lack of their release this week) together with the start of a roll-out over the next 12-18 months of redesigned Macs.

Apple deliberately kept the Mac designs substantially the same during the Intel switch - they wanted everyone to get the message that they are different, but not too different. Now they can redesign, while continually upgrading CPUs as they're rolled out by Intel.

People worried that Apple's name-change signifies a move away from Macs just haven't understood Apple's long-stated concept of the digital hub. All Apple's non-Mac hardware is designed to strenthen the role of our macs at the centre of our digital lives.

My suspicion is that there will be features to the iPhone that we haven't seen yet linking it closely to the Mac. They weren't shown either because they're not ready yet, or they rely too much on Leopard, or most likely both. Notice how little was said that about the iPhone and .Mac? Remeber that such features, even if not ready when the iPhone is initially released, will be just a software update away!

Wouldn't a special display refer to Multi-Touch? Detachable seems unrealistic.

This new one sounds like new displays to me. Could fit a huge ('more than you asked for') but expensive ('spring your money') display. 40" maybe?

Now that the iPhone is out in the open.

What does it mean for Macs?

Surely we can't have that tech in a phone and NOT(?) in a Mac?!? The standard bearer of computer innovation?

My vote is it turns up in an iMac 1st. And it could be radical. A tablet iMac?

Lemon, Nice reasoning , as always
Seriously, and SPEAKING ENTIRELY MY OWN OPINION ( let's leave the obscure sources to the Little Bird rhyming mode), the iMac is still Apple's reference machine and, as such, the recipient of first priority hard core innovation.

post #181 of 378
Mkay understood. No displays then...

Going back to the original riddle:

Perhaps something was expected but wasn't presented at MW ('a present S. left behind').
'imposing lights. made a show and our delights' clearly points to the iPhone.
'But still there's stars in this sky so bright'. The one 'star' shining bright at Apple is still the iPod.

New iPods were expected at MW and didn't happen. So that could be it.

But on the other hand most agree that the next iPod will have a touch screen as well, yet introducing it so far ahead of iPhone availability could steal a lot of thunder from the iPhone. Which is why many seem to think new iPods will arrive only once the iPhone hit shelves.

Yet if it is true that the iPhone uses Samsung chips (like the iPod) then it is feasible that the new iPhone and iPods were developed together and the iPod is ready (as it doesn't need FCC approval). This could further mean that the new iPods could also come with wifi and Safari built-in ('you'll get more than you asked for').

Yet 'Still the truth shapes itself from curved assumptions' puzzles me. Which Apple product is 'curved' these days? The all-in-one iMacs are gone, so the sunflower iMacs, everything's boxy these days.
But then maybe 'curved assumptions' merely means I was way off and need to do a 180 degree U-turn... Which could simply mean no displays but something else.

Now back to Birdie Mode...

Hard Core prioriaty innovation makes it's way into the Mac Pro and or Mac Book Pro first, not the iMac. The only innovation that the iMac has done was origianlly to really consolidate the needs addressed by the consumer in a competative low priced Mac...but today even that has gone away to a degree since the G3 iMac was a bit more closly matched to the PowerMacs of it's day than the current iMac is to the Mac Pro's today. Before anyone flames me, I'm not saying that the iMac is a bad deal or under powered, and in fact think that for the majoriaty of users is the best suited form facter on the market. I think that they should have a conroe in them, but I'm sure the tech says its not possible in the form factor. A form factor which I'm sold on and am typing away on now.

So do you guys just mean a rehash of this wish list? Because it seems every recent tablet rumor on the web is 90+% compatible with that post from last April.

Quoted so you don't have to jump:
Quote:
I want a tablet that's actually a tablet -- think steno pad sized. That gives you a form factor of 6.5x9.5 and 5/8" thick. 1.5lbs/680 grams.

Full wireless connectivity, and auto-synching with your desktop or laptop if it knows where it is on the network--worldwide. Uses your laptop/desktop on the network to get heavy duty tasks done, not quite thin client, but more X-grid/remote desktop like.

Put a 9.5 to 10" widescreen touch sensitive display on it, that's bigger than the original Macintoshes had with about a 1/4" bezel and a great size weight for on the go video. Usually, but not always streamed from your own home/work machine! Gotta be able to have enough local storage to watch on a plane/train, or kids in the back seat crossing the wastes of Nebraska.

A battery good for 12 hours in a reasonable conservation mode, 100% non-moving storage. Tons of RAM and lots of flash. It's all local cache for more speed on less power draw.

Killer app? - Sound recording capability and built in sound editing/voice parsing for post meeting/class processing. Farm that work out to the laptop/desktop and save battery. Now you can sit in a meeting or lecture, take time stamped notes and drive a auto-transcript generation utility. This gets even better if you make it Keynote syncable. Just import any PPT slides to Keynote and get the full auto synch for later playback/review. Yeah, there are implementation details here but you get the idea. Never again have some asshat be able to wriggle out of a statement made in a meeting or lecture. Never again have to lug something more than a pound an a half to do notes on or handle quick jottings.

Killer app 2?. When sitting on the desk next to the laptop/desktop and docked for recharging have a mode that would work like an intelligent input device/second monitor simultaneously. I can't begin to tell you how slick that would be for prototyping ideas, or marking up homework, etc.


Throw some other cool app stuff in to boot, I'm sure some of you have some more great ideas. Bottom line is this is not a primary machine replacement, and not a repackaged form factor of anything currently in the market today. It is a new set of functionality in a form factor that could be positioned as the ultimate must have lightweight extension of the current machine into a worldwide computing asset. You are essentially taking your office/home machine's capabilities with you in the size of a steno pad. I probably won't do great for FPS dynamic graphics games, but could probably handle most other genre's just fine, and that's OK because that's FPS is not what it would be designed for.

It would probably also drive a little ecosystem of accessories like on-the-go keyboards, optical drives, GPS navigation and other I/O devices [universal semi-self programming home theater remote? interface] to add things some folks want that others don't.

Shoot for the $499-$599 price point. We are't far off from the capability right now, battery life/form factor and some of the remote software design are the biggest issues right now. Apple already has the underlying technological pieces, just not stitched together in one cohesive manner.

The appleRecon blog is almost a complete rehash of it. Just a little bit of embellishing and call it a leak! But it's just a wish list...

the white beard is the "chin" of the current iMac

the grey beard is the lower bezel of the current Apple Displays

I know Jobs' Plans

Really!

1. New iMac design that will let users "feel" the experience
2. A tablet (codenamed "T-7") will be docked or portable using the larger scale multi-touch and the new revised "inkwell technology"
3. 6G iPod with multi-touch tech. keeping the hard disk based players in the field.
4. Larger LCD displays with more ppi and integrated iSight or without (make sense?)
5. A television, analog and digital (they need a use for the material not being MT'd)
6. Windose support in leopard (being able to run PC programs on OS X natively without windose)
7. Digital camera for photography use (quicktake is back)
8. Games/Controller for Apple ?TV
9. 500G HDD's for Notebook, Tablet and iMacs
10.Complete domination over the PC industry with the new system, all of the above and iTunes 8 HD!

The above will take it's coarse over this year and next.

Your Welcome, for more info, contact me via Myspace/Longinotti

I am surprised that this hasn't been picked-up by others en masse. It seems so obvious to me that any partnership b/w Google and Apple are going to result in an amazing geospatial device.

It's the ONE THING that hasn't been uttered by Mr. Jobs yet - but remember you heard it here first!

There will be a very tight integration w/ Leopard and you can carry your world with you.

Actually, that would be kind of cool. I suppose you could use rfid tags on your objects and have them report to the iDevice. You could buy sheets of rfid tags to put on all sorts of objects and have them synced to the iDevice.

That is pretty much what Woz had been working on:

Quote:
It's official, Apple Co-founder Steve Wozniak's Wheels of Zeus, had been focused tracking items of value to people and corporations using inexpensive GPS technology, has been shut down. By my count this is Wozniak's second failed attempt to start a company that would pioneer new ground.

More info at: http://news.com.com/Wozniak+shuts+do...l?tag=nefd.top

With Wheels of Zeus gone the way of the sock puppet, Wozniak is free to focus his talents on acquisitions at AcQuior, with fellow Apple alums Gil Amelio and Ellen Hancock. I wonder if Wozniak will be more successful under the button down tutelage of Ellen Hancock than he's been in previous attempts as an entrepreneur.

I'm not going to hold my breath to see how long it takes Acquicor to exhaust its considerable checking account or how long Wozniak will last. Who's next for the Acquicor lineup, Del Yocam?

but don't always have the truth to tell.
We go to them just the same,
'cos guessing can be a great game"

We share ideas of what we want
from iMacs to a great new font
We rave and moan and speculate
if Mac Pro's cores will soon be eight

When everything is said and done
We all agree it's been some fun
If you can't get that into your head
Then go enjoy another thread!

I do not know if you have heard
(Another nugget from the bird)
Creative people use Macs too
And we have rights just like you

We express ourselves, very gladly
It doesn't matter quite how badly
Through OSX, not XP's sister
The uninspiring Windows Vista
