    I predict:
    • iWork, iLife, shipping now.

    • Leopard demonstrated, shipping March/April.

    • Updated specs of mini and/or Mac Pro, but not a big update. No 8-core Pros. Just a brief mention for a minor update.

    • iTV, shipping now. OR (not both) iPhone.

    I don't think so. While it may seem like a good idea at first blush, it doesn't really mesh well with what Apple is trying to do. They might be a good partner, but not a good acquisition.

    Nope, not going to happen. Steve knows that things are going his way right now, and he wouldn't want to abandon his post.

    Actually, I don't think they need a game console. It just looks that way. I don't think they ought to concede it either. A good partnership (a.k.a. with Nintendo) can go a long way. Especially with as hot as the Wii is right now.

    Yes, Sony is imploding. No, MS is not winning. They did not do so well this past Christmas season. Vista has already gotten so much bad publicity that people are doubting it. Their living room answer is based off from the same crud that Vista is. Explain how they are winning again??

    I don't mean to sound crass about this, I just think you are painting too bleak of a picture here. Just hold on to your pants, it is going to be a fun Keynote, and an ever funner year.

    1. Forty-five minutes demonstrating new iDVD themes.

    2. Thirty minutes demonstrating the new dock Genie effect in Leopard.

    3. Forty-five minutes repeatedly saying "boom."

    I did, look here. I found out Rolo did too, but I never knew he did. I just thought it's so obvious, and I couldn't believe everyone wasn't thinking the same. Apple make speakers, Apple make computer screens, Apple wants the living room, 2 + 2 =

    A reborn Cube to be the 30th Anniversary Mac, filling the niche for a headless Mac between what may be a new iMac and the Octo Mac Pros.

    No white handcuffs.

    That's ridiculous. The handcuffs will be made of ceramic, will contain an MP3 player, and use Bluetooth headphones. "Boom. Clip right on you! No hassle with the cords getting tied up in your jumpsuit."

    My Predictions:

    iLife '07;

    iWork '07 with "Lasso" for spreadsheets;

    Leopard features, with new UI look;

    Phone unveiling, not release, and:

    -Steve will show ads,

    -Some other CEO will come out, make bad jokes like Roz Ho;

    Airport Extreme and iSight improvements.

    As a starter Steve Jobs mentions Apples role in the Computer industry.

    He mentions some (growing) numbers, briefly introduces some updates

    regarding the iApps in general.

    On stage: Again Intels Otelini, who praises Apple a lot.

    He is so proud to do business with the leader of the industry.

    On stage: Again Adobes Bruze, who talks about the wonderful relationship

    Apple and Adobe have gained again. He praises CS3 as the best and most powerful

    Photoshop ever, that comprises Mac only features. (Camera on Jobs: big smile),

    while someone else demos the new creative suite. (Announcement of shipping date)

    Leaving stage with friendly hugs.

    Commercial Break, on to iPods.

    Jobs mentions the incredible success of its iPod family.

    Now say hello to a new member.

    iPod theater. Comes in shiny white and a pretty 19:6 screen.

    Touch screen navigation, 60 to 100 gig HD space.

    The Mother of all iPods.

    Further he introduces the new iPod HiFi Express, with build in

    Airport Express card and improved sound.

    Jobs smiles his smile.

    Than he continues his performance by saying something between these lines:

    "Apple is a big success since 30 years and appears stronger and stronger every day."

    "Our success had been based upon 2 pillars. Macs and since a couple

    of years iPod and iTunes. Macs changed the computer industry. iPod+iTunes changed the

    music industry. From now on we are going to change (*silence*)...

    the film industry. He actually announces the immediate availability of iTunes Movie Store,

    supported by at least 4-5 Majors. Talks about improved subscripten models and so on,

    but what about to watch what you want when you want?

    From now on we deliver you Movie streams directly into your house via

    your DSL/Cable slot. Easy. How? Look at this. He unveils the Airport Theater

    (formerly known as iTV). The price is pretty competitive.

    What else? Jobs asks the audience. The rumour is true of course.

    He introduces the Apple Phone (which got a funky name, that i cant't come up with)

    So far, hope that helps to get you straight.


    Updates of the entire iApps line

    Announcing shipping date of CS3

    iPod Theater

    iPod HiFi Express

    Airport Theater (supported by at least 4-5 Movie Majors)

    Apple Phone

    Alright, in about 5 hours you will be able to congratulate me for this post

    - The usual stuff (some figures on iPod/Macs/Revenues/Retail stores etc)

    - iPod 6G (w/o touch-screen)

    - Leopard "preview" (Shipping TODAY!)

    - Mac mini update (C2D)

    - iWork/iLife 07

    - iTV release (no idea for the name - definitely none of those mentioned in this forum )

    - One more thing: Completely new Cinema Displays, more models, more affordable

    - Perhaps one even more thing: (I daren't say what...)

    We could discuss on the order, anyway...

    Well, however, keep cool

    And have fun

    1) A device based on iTV technology. It will include the ability to download videos to the device (which has about 150 GB storage space) through the AirPort Express Wi-Fi connection, and will include both component video and HDMI outputs for today's widescreen TV's.

    2) The new iLife and iWork software suites.

    3) The "true" video iPod with 16:9 aspect ratio screen, touchscreen controls and 80 to 120 GB of hard disk storage on device. Along with device comes the iTunes 7.5 software, which adds the full iTunes Movie Store capability.

    4) The long-rumored Apple cellphone, which is GSM-based (so it can be used in most of the world) and will be available in the USA through Cingular and T-Mobile.

    5) Improved iMac and Mac Mini models with better Core 2 Duo CPU's, more RAM capacity, even bigger hard disk capacity and possibly improved onboard video.

    6) The next generation of Apple Cinema Displays.

    It's always a little sad coming back to these threads after the event, but this one's a little sadder than most for me. Every single prediction about the keynote that didn't involve iTV (now Apple TV) or the iPhone was wrong. I was kind of disappointed. There were a few things I was hoping for?primarily an improved Pages?and none of them even got mentioned. I don't expect Apple to completely ignore their computer/software business for the next year or anything, but I was hoping for some announcements that might be more relevant for me.
