whats the worst Apple could do to your wallet?

in Future Apple Hardware edited January 2014
is it a 30th Aniversary Mac/iMac/xMac or something else?

an iphone

a widescreen (video) ipod

iTV gaining a Blu-ray/HD-DVD drive or gaining an inch in height and a 200GB HD

or fox, warner, new line etc. all signing up for a movie download service thru iTunes

a Mac TV with iTV included! and all that that entails

or Leopard being ready on Tuesday!

what would it take to defeat your wallet and make you cry ENOUGH IS ENOUGH

not a poll really, just "the final" tm dollop of insanity

    an ultra portable mac pro would do it for me, upto £1200 (less w/ student discount). And an i phone, my old Nokia 6600 is seriously dead now.

    The ultra portable 30th anniversary Mac Super Book would send me happily into debt for the next five years.8)

    Announcing Leopard, iWork 07 (with a spreadsheet app) and new displays.

    That would force me to purchase a Mac Pro, iWork 07 and a 30-inch HD Cinema Display.

    Resistance is futile. Must purrrch-ch-chassssssss........arghhhhhhhh!!!!

    I would love to have to figure out how to buy a new Apple branded phone this week. But I just don't see it being announced. That is too much for a MW keynote. I see a special event for that one. Realistically, I expect to buy iL07. Naturally, I will buy the new OS if that is ready. They will really need to do something special to Pages to make me want iW07. That's pretty much it for me. Even so, I am taking Tuesday off to enjoy the spectacle. Thank goodness for paid personal days.

    Apple has already done its worse to my wallet in 2003-2004. I blew like AUD$5,000 and maxxed out my credit cards buying and selling Macs just to try the latest models and stuff and setting up some sweet music gear to make Trancemusik. Took 2 years (2005-2006) to clear it off, with the help of my parents. Not fun.

    Thank gawd I don't anticipate anything grand about the iPod Phone or iPod CinemaWide that I need to run out and buy it. It'll take about a month to really show up in Australia anyway.

    I have built a Jobsian-RDF-Shield(TM) made out of chicken-fence-wire and lots of tassels and Christmas ornaments. Let's hope it works. 8)
