    I've always assumed one of the stumbling blocks for HD content at iTS has been that iPods don't have the horsepower to play 720p files. Are the 6G models capable? Not that it matters on an iPod-size screen, but having two different files; one for iPod and another for AppleTV would seem to be a big problem. It seems necessary though because HD files would take up too much space on your iPod. Some sort of conversion mechanism needs to be built into iTunes, I suppose. Perhaps it'll come with iTunes 8 at MWSF.

    It's very possible that a firmware update could unlock 720p output on the iPod classic and 3G nanos.

    Many people ask for this, but it is very unlikely. I don't see the next iMac before spring '08.

    This is something to think about. Apple recently likes adding stealth BTO options.

    I am surprized no one said it: by MWSF '08 the Macbook Pro design will be 5 YEARS OLD. I tried hard but in vain to remember such a long standing design in Apple's lines in the last ten years or so...



    Oh wait, that's it: the iBook design. We had it for exactly 5 years.

    I like this list.

    How about the Airport Express being bumped up to 802.11n

    They had better update the graphics card as that is apparently the problem behind all of the freezing issues....

    My 2 cents. I believe they will//should create a simple home server (headless) with massive storage and ZFS. Back up to another machine via Time Machine. Server software for "mere mortals". It will connect via AirPort//WiMax to laptops, AppleTV, iPhone, and a new apple display. Voice controlled (for use with the iPhone. "ET phone home."
