    Holograph would be a bit better. Just a bit.

    Awesome, thanks for clearing that up. [sarcasm]I'll work on making it a little more obvious next time[/sarcasm]



    In all reality, if Apple tried to agglomerate/merge the 2 OS's now, I think the dev world would collectively explode. As Realistic pointed out in a their response, such fusion is possible in the future; perhaps when the iOS and Mac OS divide is characterized by a more subtle difference in functionality than a completely different UI experience.

    I hope you are right. A small thing perhaps, but I was never really comfortable with the ...@me.com. Sounded a bit egocentric or something. I still use ...@Mac.com exclusively!



    I much prefer ...@iCloud.com though!

    AAPL up 1.75% $6 and change



    This will be significant -- it will set the base and define the direction for Apple for the next 5 years.

    Working on a great new desktop OS, mobile OS, and cloud services actually worth paying for.



    Yeah, that's a job for Friday evenings. They've obviously been wasting their time.

    Hopefully there are widgets. And holographs.

    I'm confused. Apple is different than Mac?



    Oh, is the 272% including iDevices? That's idiotic; just put them all in one or don't have iDevices at all.

    No, that's exactly what he should do. In fact, it might even be better if he wasn't there at all. One of the problems with Steve and Apple is that he's made it seem like that he's the whole company. His "insistence" on doing these presentations even when he's still officially on personal leave only reinforces the notion that no other executive in the company is capable of making such a presentation except for him.



    He makes occassional "thank you's" to the team, but it still comes across as "all Steve, all the time." Even if his health wasn't an issue, he needs to begin stepping back so that the market is assured that the rest of the exec team can run the company. Otherwise, whenever he does leave, whether it's by choice (like Bill Gates) or because of health issues, the stock won't crash to absurd lows based on the false assumption that without Steve, Apple can't be successful. And if Apple doesn't have anyone else who can give exciting, credible presentations, then they need to hire those types of people.



    IMO, the CFO should present the sales/financial review and the head of each product team should present the new services/products. Steve (since he'll obviously be there), should act as moderator and booster for his team of execs.

    Nobody else comes close. He's got mad skills. Combined with the founder-in-the-garage thing nobody can touch a Jobs presentation.

    It seems obvious to me that by Apple choosing to announce what they are going to present before they do it that they have something up there sleeves. Now I def. can't wait for June 6.

    I second that. I love what I'm seeing in OS X 10.7, it's great stuff, but it's all evolutionary and it most likely won't significantly change my day-to-day use of my OS X machines.



    iOS 5 on the other hand, I expect a lot from that. The things I'm most interested in is (of course) the notification system, the way it will handle multi-core CPU's (I'm pretty sure it's going to have some twist that makes it much easier for developers to exploit multiple cores compared to other OS's), and what new API's and frameworks will be available. My prediction is that the notification system and some minor UI changes and gimmicks such as widgets will attract most of the attention of the general public, and that many people will be disappointed that iOS 5 will not introduce a massive UI overhaul (I don't think it's going to happen), but that meanwhile, under the hood, so many things will change that iOS 5 will open a whole new world of opportunities for developers. Looking forward to it

    I agree, it reeks of ego. You see this all the time in science with the head of the group presenting everything, but it is badly received. Share the wealth and acknowledge those involved, it only makes you stronger.

    Not everybody wants to present, of course. In general, though, I agree.
