It's the "light" variant of the Myriad font. Here's a comparison.

Yes, Myriad Light...Light like the ultraportable they will be releasing! I discovered the secret!

A complete ecosystem around the video:
1 Itunes as a center piece with rented movie, video
2 New monitors that can show TV in the same time (don't forget you tube on high def) plus a ichat camera on wifi
3 New apple tv, blue ray, wifi N, 500 Go, tv tuner
4a "kinda" itouch/newtown with a bit bigger screen, wifi and so son to see video on the go.
4b sub notebook

and of course the Isee glasses, to see movies properly

Maybe they'll announce that they took some of their billions and bought Adobe AIR and are planning a pro version of iWeb?

C'mon, people, don't you get it?

Obviously, Apple is coming out with an iFridge personal refrigerator. One feature is a sensor that monitors the quality of the milk in the fridge, sends you a message on your iPhone when it goes sour and tells you where to go buy more.

Now that's "cool" technology!!

The font choice is really concerning me as to the validity of it, but I'm sure it has all to do with the Apple TV and WiFi.

whats the probability of something related to WiMax?
post #54 of 385
I know this is very different and highly unlikely but remember the patent filing for the wireless device that could charge itself without being plugged into a base. Essentially charging itself wirelessly. How incredible would that be to have your iPod/iPhone/MacBook charge itself as long as you were within a certain proximity to a base station. Again, highly unlikely but fun to think about. That would be "something different in the air".

an amazing thought, i would think Apple will be quick to adopt the technology once it can power something other than a light bulb efficiently....

as far as i know, there's no national provider with a fully built wimax network as of yet. Sprint is the only one i know of who has plans to go national this year, but currently they only cover Chicago, Baltimore, and D.C., and that only launched this past week.

WiMax is something to look forward to in 2009, right now, it's just too early.

(edit: sorry iPhelim, i didn't notice you were in the UK, i didn't mean to ignore the world outside the US, but let's be honest, Apple wouldn't release something that wasn't ready for use in the US.)

It wouldn't really be amazing, it would just bring at&t + iPhone up to parity with T-mobile's Wi-fi at home service.

Both Apple and at&t have been taking a wait and see position on this. I'd expect more innovation from Apple especially. Whatever happened to "innovating our way out of this"?

There are a lot of things that require less power than a light bulb. Apple makes a few of them. Even the laptops could at least recharge.

Perhaps this means they're finally, finally, FINALLY going to update the Airport Express with 802.11n? I mean, it's been a year since they came out with the updated Airport Extreme base station! My Airport Expresses are the only things holding back my home network from going up to 802.11n speeds.

But, as the subject says, I hardly think they would build a conference banner around an update to the Airport Express...

Now I know what is the product Steve is going to announce!


An air conditioner!


The Apple Whoosh


It has amazing new features:

Compact size. With it's ultra portable size you could transport it were you go, even if it weights the same as your refrigerator. It's that thin. And that heavy, too.

Touchscreen. Because there is nothing worse that an air conditioner remote. Imagine a beautiful touch interface. Pinch once to put it in "comfort" with a smooth nice wind in your head, pinch twice to go "caribean" and holograms of caribean hot girls make the appearance around you. It uses sensors to detect were you are and place the holographic girls right there.

.Mac Syncing. What happens when you go to a conference or a hotel and you want to relax like when you're at home but you don't have your Apple Woosh with you? Well, using .Mac syncing, all your Wooshes will remember your favorite settings. It's that easy. It's just work. Another reason to switch to Mac, even tough will work on Windows too, but the iTunes version will be crippled.

Flash drive. What you say? Nobody wants memory on an air conditioner? Oh, your so wrong. Steve knows we want to see pictures in the roof while the Apple Woosh use a mosaic effect to present the family photos to... well, the family. And all of this magic uses Core Animation and isn't compatible with Tiger, so make sure so upgraded to the latest big cat.

iTunes WIFI Store. Wouldn't it be great if you could purchase music right in the living room while looking at the caribean girls proyected by the Apple Woosh? Of course it would. Just watch the Steve demo at the keynote or wait for the Steve Jobs Clone demo at Apple.com, the same guy that demoed Leopard with the classical look of SJ.

Integrated iSight. Don't you wish you could take photos with your air conditioner? Or make a video chat? The Apple Woosh includes a new iSight camera that will just know when you want to broadcast your life to the world. Just bounce your head three times and the Apple Woosh will kill the lights and open iChat for you, with all your lazy friends waiting for talking to you, because we know you think your so important.

It's the ultimate reality show. You can make feeds and WooshCasts that your dummy friends will easily watch at there iPod or AppleTV. You would not need to know anything about air conditioners, let the Apple Woosh be up there for you, broadcasting your life to iTunes and, of course, making you cool. (Get it? "Cool"? Because it's a air conditioner. It makes you cool. Get it?)



The Apple Woosh will ship in "febiury" at the incredible cost of $499. But wait two months, because by then it will cost just $10.

Come on Apple, don't let me down two years in a row..

Since the rumored ultra-portable is supposed to lack a hard drive (giving it a much smaller Flash RAM drive), perhaps Apple does have some sort of ubiquitous WiFi/3G up its sleeve for the new device. With Back to My Mac, you can access your home computer from anywhere, allowing you to keep the big files back home, but still access them while you travel around town. Or better yet, automatically sync your Home folder between the two computers, so you're always working with the current versions of your files.

3G on a device the size of a small laptop would be much easier to accomplish than 3G on an iPhone. Throw in free access, the way the Kindle does with EVDO, and you could have a much more powerful machine than I had originally thought.

Put that 3G into the entire lineup of MacBook Pros, not just the ultra portable, and there'd really be reason for excitement.

Different font + "In the air"= obvious trap....


Gates and Balmer have kidnapped Steve and are planning on releasing sarin gas into the facility!!



It's sooo obvious!!




Okay, I watched far too many conspiracy shows lately.


I'm guessing iTunes/AppleTV related stuff, but then again, I like taking easy bets.

I bet they just ran out of things to announce and Steve will talk about AirPort Ex(treme/press) for two hours straight. Can't wait!

My guess is that it's downloadable apps for iPhone/iPod Touch.

A subnotebook or tablet like device that can act either as a standalone computer utilizing flash memory or when in range of an enabled desktop computer, connects directly to it using 802.11n. It would sync the 'mobile' enabled folders and you would be able to take advantage of the desktop's storage, applications, optical drives, processor. An extension of the Home on iPod concept. Perhaps? Maybe? Probably not

SHUDDUP EVERONE!!!!! *breathes very hard for several seconds*
I'm still very angry at appleinsider's post about no mactouch this macworld.
About the only thing that would make up for that and my theory on the "theres something in the air" logo is the following:

APPLE HELPS GOOGLE WIN THE 700mhz SPECTRUM AUCTION!!
That would absolutely transform the wireless industry forever.
Think of the possibilities.

Come on people, I think it's clear that it's a "Free-Floating MacThink!" The new Mac that floats in the air above your desk even more than the iMac does (this time literally) and you control it with your brain. :-P
