Also, one would not need any wires to connect your macbook to the cinema display.

That has been discussed before. The problem with Apple developing TVs is that there are many different sizes and types that consumers want. Many people also tend to update their components well before they update their TV.

That's not a problem. If Apple developed 2 sizes that would suffice. And the update would be handled via wifi firmware like the present ATV. And then the SOny TVs in the Apple stores would go bye bye.

If that is indeed the name it will be very weird as no one on the planet predicted that one. Not even me

If we have Nike Air -why not Mac Air. Will AIr Jordan become the new spokesman?

The fact that the song itself proclaims revolutionary intent was definitely ideal for the theme in Easy Rider. In addition, everything about Jobs and the manner he accomplishes things is equally revolutionary or rebellious.

If I may add another possibility past the ability to communicate, compute and entertain wirelessly, lets not forget his patent on induction (wireless) charging and data transfer.

In any event, I think that Job's has something 'revolutionary' in mind. Not, simply renting movies. And to your reference to Fon, perhaps an Apple WiFi Extreme is in the cards.

That's sounds all a little too Zune-ish to me.

There are only a few hundred Apple Stores. I would expect Apple to replace its handheld payment system running Windows Mobile with an IPod Touch with CC reading accesory attached via the 30-pin connector before adding an Apple-branded TV. After all, Apple already has one of these devices in production.

What two sizes would you expect for an Apple-branded TV? Whatever you say, i guarantee there will people that want many other sizes. And what type of display technology would they use? There are advocates for many different technologies, too.

Something's in the air
Sky is in the air
Businesses are in sky scrapers
Apple is targeting the business market

Quite obvious really.

I suppose it could be the ultra-portable (at a stretch) - the slogan could refer to its use on airplanes.

I'm sure we all suspected that MacWorld was going to be about the ultra-portable. I'd guess they'll leave a slate until Montevina.

There used to be a rumor of an Alliance between Apple and a Flight Company...
And if it was a very powerful Apple TV that start being used for the airplane Video on demand...

Offering the time of a flight a Dock for your ipod, mac, or... with access to the apple store.
With the possibility to listen to all the music for free. You could buy your song in duty free before leaving the airplane...
It can easily be extended to video, podcast...

There's something in the air... ^_^
and It's a plane !

It will also be the ultra thin portable that will anyway definitely make it's breakout...
offering easy portability for traveler... with a new dimension in plane

Let see in a few days now ^.^
post #248 of 385
Let me add that the multitouch technology could replace the actual poor led touch screen available in airplane....

Also OLED screen, small sized.. perfect.
Also don't use much electricity... perfect for low energy consumption (good for poor airplane asking for more gasoline and destroying our earth... think greener they say lol)

The problem with the LED screens on planes is not the touch screen, it's poor resolution analog signal being pipped to them. I can't see a multi-touch interface on a seat back. It seems inconvenient.

I would like to know how much additional amperage would be saved per hour with screens. I don't think it would be enough to warrant adding expensive OLED screens to seat backs.

I agree that the present checkout system at he stores is a real embarrassment but what difference would the replacements really matter? New Apple check out handhelds are not going to generate major sales figures for Apple. HP has limited already TVs. Many think it's only a matter of time before a real Apple TV comes out. I would think LCD and 26" and 42". I prefer plasma myself.

If Apple launched a wireless broadband service, based on Intel's WiMax they might just call it "Air"

Imagine what such a service could potentially do to the other Wireless carriers.

The current cinema display concept does not make any sense as it locks my portable to a big screen. All of a sudden your portable is not a portable anymore and you are hooked to your desk for ever and ever and ever mwhahahaha (evil laugh)

The apple tv concept would solve this issue however. Not only for the living room, but also for the creative studio (office). Ireland! I am on your side!!

If AirPort is the name for Wi-Fi devices in Apple-speak, surely Air is Wi-Fi, or at least radio communication? Seems to me they're doing something wireless what it is, I don't know.

I just wanted to express my mourning on the non-probability of the Mac Tablet.
That was the rumor that thrilled me most of all.
It would just be so damn usefull in class.

Please don't let me down on the thin new notebook.
Because the only thing that could alleviate my pain would be a nice 13" MacBook (Pro) clad in aluminium and the announcement of a 32GB iPod Touch (hopefully with external volume controls).

I had to say this. Now I can go back to being grumpy.

If Apple doesn't produce a tablet this week , just buy a Modbook . It's a Apple powerbook turned into a tablet, They say it is shipping now. Made by Axiotron, $ 2,279 and $ 2,479.

Yes, I'd like to.
No, I won't.

AFAIK the handwriting recognition isn't implemented into the system.
I would need it to work with MS Office, iWork and all the other apps.
Also this lovely notebook - which I find really impressive - isn't available in Germany or Europe. In case of a malfunction or a defect I would have to send it back to the USA.
I'm going to go to Beijing for six months and if something happens there I need good and fast service.

Still, thanks for the mention.

I found some videos comparing Leopard and Vista's handwriting recognition capabilities. Vistas wins hands down.

Unless they have *VASTLY* improved it over what ships with the XP Tablets... no. Regardless of the accuracy of the actual engine, the HW system on XP always felt like a tack-on toy. InkWell integrates extremely well with OS X.

@solipsism

Yes, that's what I've heard, too.
And since I already have tried the handwriting recognition that MS has been using since they introduced the tablet...
I've spent some time with a Compaq TC1100 and liked it.
I believe the Modbook is awesome for people who do graphic design and that sorta stuff, or just "point and click"-operations like in a hospital,
but I would like to have a tablet with me in university and just write stuff down.
(Have I mentioned that I'm curious about the new notes app in Office '08.)

Check out one of the YouTube videos. Vista does cursive, which InkWell doesn't do, and Vista's app seems to be much more accurate.

Tablets have *never* sold. Why?

Because they fill a need that does not exist. The only sensible application is blue-collar "vertical" apps. Tick box here. Select from menu. Get customer to sign here.

Most general-purpose computing applications require text input. Handwriting is slower than typing. Machine-recognizable handwriting is *much* slower than typing.

A tablet from Apple? Never.
A computer with the *processor behind the screen* and a detachable keyboard. Possibly.

Apple is not stupid enough to spend millions launching iTunes Movie Rentals and then undercut the download service by having customers say that discs are better.

A: I was joking. The idea of streaming Blu-Ray content from a box--hooked up to a TV--to a computer and watching on a monitor is completely ridiculous. I was snidely saying that AppleTV is a product without consumers.

B: Your vision of Apple's strategy may be completely on the nose. Of course they want to sell their iTunes content and they want AppleTV to be a major vehicle for just that. However, without anyone buying AppleTVs, it's largely a moot point.

C: A hi-def machine will always be better than online content (until there is an infrastructure for online HD content). Where Apple competes in the market for media isn't quality; it's convenience. Apple isn't stupid enough to claim their iTunes content will be better than physical media mediums; thus, the addition of a Blu-Ray player in the ATV wouldn't hurt their overall pitch.

D: So, while I was joking, it's completely possible that Apple will put Blu-Ray into AppleTV. Thus reducing the number of entertainment devices the consumer must buy before taking advantage of iTunes conveniences. Although, Blu-Ray in AppleTV doesn't have much to do with something being in the air.

True.
But sitting in class and not only having to write stuff down, but also draw small explanatory graphics in one document is nice.
And with the XP tablet edition you had the option to save a document in handwritten form and konvert it to machine-writing later when you review your notes.
And this last step is not as work intensive as it seems.
As I said, I've tried it. The app wasn't perfect, but more than usable and helpful.
post #271 of 385
I haven't seen anyone mention this so far but this is a concept i came up with a couple of years ago --

a problem right now with the ipods is in the house, you need to be "at the ipod" -- mostly likely standing up and off of your couch -- to change songs, artists, etc...

even CD player systems have solved this problem a long time ago -- i have a 51 CD changer with remote.

with the ipod, there is no remote.

the solution is that the ipod, itself, becomes a sort of remote except the songs are stored on the ipod.

the songs or videos get streamed to your airport express, apple TV... maybe even your car decks if apple goes in that direction.

Sure to fuel rampant and widespread speculation for the next four days is a sprawling matte black banner hanging above the entrance to the south hall that reads simply:

"2008. There's something in the air."

Several other banners bearing the same phase are also visible through the windows of the south hall entrance.




Just as it is necessary to own a computer to have an iPod or iPhone, so a completely wireless laptop might fill the niche between these handhelds and full-blown laptops and hence also boost desktop sales. Apple has a pattern of incorporating leverage and hence kick-backs into its devices so that they not only provide distributed income streams but form an inter-dependent ecosystem with one initiating the need, or desire, for another.

A dependent wireless laptop would boost desktop computer sales right when these are going into decline in the general shift toward portables. So here we have a really neat, desirable, oh-so-thin laptop with no moving parts save the screen-hinges and keys. Sort of a big, flat, iPod Touch with a gesture-sensitive trackpad for rotating and zooming, as well as the usual two-finger scroll. More importantly this is a portable that boosts iMac and Mac Pro sales contrary to the trend of every other manufacturer - a very neat solution to consolidating sales and boosting profits right out of thin air.

The use of the term "Air" also has a tradition in its association with WiFi and Apple: notably the AirPort.

Personally, I didn't expect this ultra-portable until Penryn mobile processors debuted, as the lower wattage and hence cooler-running and smaller battery made ultra-thinness possible.

I expect to see two models, say a 64 Gig Flash Drive and a 128 Gig. Expect 'g' and 'n' wireless, gesture sensitive Touchpad, LED backlit screen and a reasonably good, to very impressive, battery-life. With Flash-drive and Penryn-power, it'll be practically instant on and really quick and with integrated everything including graphics, it shouldn't cannibalize sales of MacBook Pro's for professional graphics use. I don't see induction charging - but you never know. When closed, the "Air" will probably still be thinner than a tablet PC. I think Apple would be hard pushed not to play with the words "thin air".

That's my guess. From Aero to Air. A neat solution to more than one problem.

I don't think a new desktop will be needed. A wireless ultra-portable would simply integrate like an iPod - but without the need for iTunes. It would just pop onto the Desktop of any computer on the network to which it had sharing rights.

The sales of desktops would be increased because the "Air"? would not be quite good enough to stand alone - certainly able, but not quite enough capacity or whatever.

You're thinking too narrowly about what an Apple Tablet could be.

Steve Jobs didn't tout about MT so much just to sell the iPhone, it originated from Tablet designs. It's just taking Apple a little longer to come up with all the folder dragging, copy & pasting and all the regular computer jazz for its multi-touch UI. If you don't think Apple will ever make a tablet you are not seeing the obvious man, cause it's seems like a big truck coming down the road to me.

The iPhone is a revolution, now give us 10" screen, some real processing, desktops, folders and all that jazz and we have a "total revolution". It's coming, I am certain. It's kind of as obvious as Apple making televisions, it's a given.
