Thread Starter 


Having said that, I think I'll avoid the Apple.com homepage and all Mac related sites, until Tuesday to watch the keynote in video form.

How about we leave out the hours until the last week, 25 days would have sufficed.

I want a widget that counts down to the keynote, not ten hours before it. Anyone know of one?

Are you sure it's measuring 10 hours earlier? Exactly 10 hours? I might be able to hack|mod the Widget....

It would be nice if they updated the MBPs, but what I really want to see is Leopard.

17 DAYS!

And this thread is proof that Steve has us all hopelessly addicted to everything Mac.

Seeing as this is a countDOWN thread, maybe we could start a countUP thread for Leopard. Or better yet, the next Windows version.

One more choppy thought. (and before I get flammed, I have nothing against any Leopard delay)
Everybody's special. That doesn't mean we are all the same, though. It just means you have to be extra special if you want to stick out.

What would a WWDC thread be without predictions?

1) Apple replaces the MacMini with a new product that will serve a similar purpose and market segment, much like the iPod Nano replaced the iPod Mini (no MacNano jokes please )
2) Leopard features an enhanced BootCamp that will allow for easier emulation of Windows programs within OS X. The requirement that the user purchase and install a copy of Windows will still apply.
3) Finder will no longer be the centre of OS X. It will be replaced by a version of Spotlight on steroids. The Finder will still be available, but it will not be running by default.
4) The iMac loses its chin and will allow users to swap hard drives as they do RAM. They won't be able to open up the back as they did with the very first iMac.
5) Leopard includes a graphical version of MacPorts that can also be used as a repository for open source .app programs.
6) Apple open sources its version of Java. Now that Sun's version is open sourced and Apple's Java 6.0 is over 6 month behind Sun's, Apple has to do this. Also, since Apple's devs are also working on the iPhone and Apple TV, they no longer have the resources to maintain a separate version of Java on their own. It will not open source the native Aqua code that's used by Swing, only the Java classes that access that native code.
7) Bonjour takes a prominent role in Leopard, as well as the AppleTV and the iPhone (this is inspired from roughlydrafted.com, so I can't take full credit for this prediction).
8) Now that all first party apps (Finder, Safari, iTunes) have had their themes unified, Apple will replace the Mac look n' feel with something radically different from Aqua, far more significant than the change to brushed metal from pinstripes and just as significant as the move to OS X itself.

Cheers big ears!

PS, I had a feeling there'd be a time diff. Apple should work on making that automatic.

12 Days . PS Ireland, glad you enjoyed the widget skin. Time Difference stuff is handy in iCal, turn on time zone support and I can keep track of PremiereLeague (next season, I guess ) and French Open and stuff. Which reminds me. Time for WWDC to go into my iCal.

2:00 am here; nothing like pulling an all-nighter for the cause.

Will be on chat from half-an hour before the keynote. Anybody doing live coverage?

 

Your = the possessive of you, as in, "Your name is Tom, right?" or "What is your name?"

 

You're = a contraction of YOU + ARE as in, "You are right" --> "You're right."

Cool. Appleinsider chat room on AOL/AIM. ... I'll try and be on chat about an hour before keynote.

The usual suspects will be giving live coverage. Nice if we had some real insiders from AI Forums.
