    Good luck with your job at the apple store. I just hope you don't end up like those people who loved chocolate so much, that twey decided to get a job in a chocolate factory, and after a couple of months surrounded by all this sweet stuff, they couldn't even look at chocolate any more. But anyway I have to agree with you, applications like in iLife would certainly make sense on an iPad. Would buy it instantly without hesitation. With iWorks they did such a fantastic job.... Well it would be great.

    Am I the only one that wishes he could turn off multitasking on his iPhone?

    It runs slower, the battery life is about 3/4 what it used to be.

    And applications behave slightly different upon startup.

    And now, I have to go in an kill apps all the time (especially GPS apps).



    For the once or twice I've run Pandora while using a GPS app (talk about killing battery life!), I could easily get by without the multitasking. I'd rather have my battery life back and not have to recharge my phone in the middle of the day.

    I have my doubts about this, too. Untill the new datacenter is up and running (if the rumors of a new iTunes cloud service are indeed true) I woul little sense to launch a new product which will rely on this service. Besides, the itv / atv is not a music product. I know the iPod touch is about much more than music but it seems a new itv and streaming service would require it's own launch.

    Hmm.. there are still Apple TV - blind spots on earth. So apple should push licencing in other countries. Still I'm not shure wether a new apple TV concept would seduce me into buying such a gadget. Never was too much in to TV. So my expectations are not all to high. But I am open for surprises.

    I don't know about battery life but I don't know anybody who 'uses' multitasking actively. Most people I know are oblivious to the fact they are running tons of apps in the bg (or keeping state of said apps, to be precise) most people are surprised when I show them how many apps they have 'open'. Multitasking is an example of how lots of loud geeks can create a meaningless fuss. I am not against multitasking but on the iPod or iPhone it is overrated. There should be an option to switch it on / off and the default should be off.

    Apple's marketing is nothing if not deliberate and focused. Nothing having to do with something as important as the unveiling of iTV would be publicized with a... guitar. Hello people - MUSIC.

    Had the same thought. I bet not.



    Now the leaks begin in earnest. I expect that we'll have a pretty good idea what's coming within the next few days.

    They probably moved the date so Apple's news rides over the weekend, to block some of the Samsung Galaxy Tab (Android Tablet) news coming on the 3rd.



    Mass media is a large free marketplace for super companies, and Apple knows how to use it to their advantage.

    With a Music emphasis, how come no one has mentioned



    iTunes in the cloud?



    Also I see Jobs briefly playing to the crowd that said the iPad is not a creation device, but consumption, then he'll introduce iLife for iOS with a killer Garageband App.



    the iPad as creation device will then take hold.
