    How about 10% of everything to celebrate 10 years?

    Probably a sale.

    But if they're taking requests...

    If you've bought any Apple product at a retail store ever, you get a free limited edition gold octo-core macbook pro or carbon fiber 32 core mac pro, and both come with 32gb of ram and a 1TB SSD. Plus they can go ahead and release Lion and iPhone 5, and if you buy either you get a free iPad 2 signed by Ive. And hey, throw in a surprise Mac Mini/Apple TV hybrid since I'm feeling generous with Apple's money.

    If it's not asking too much

    Maybe the long-awaited release of the iCar?

    Quarterly Earnings call just made mention that 1 billionth customer will be walking into an Apple Store near you in May. That's a milestone for ya. But can't see why that would occasion no time off for all staff.

    This wouldn't surprise me in the least. Good call. 4s? 4x?

    Are Apple retail employees ever allowed to take vacation? They weren't allowed to take it in March, either.

    True. Although I am more inclined to think new iMacs, a new MobileMe, maybe new iWork than the iPhone

    Maybe even a bumped up release of the new Final Cut (and perhaps Logic)

    I literally just finished watching a movie streamed from Netflix and the quality still leaves something to be desired (and I get 20-30Mbps down).

    Oh, and just to get back on topic, I've got my fingers crossed for new iMacs.

    The headless Mac we've all been clamoring for!

    I'm picking either an iPhone Air or Apple TV (with screen).

    Or maybe a trade-in program - bring in your windows box and get a big discount on an iMac. All those traded in windows boxes get sent to the third world as free hackintoshes. /sarcasm

    Maybe it will be iPhone 5? So it's not coming in June. But why does it have to be later than June? Could be earlier!

    I believe it will be a device that has something to do with the CLOUD!

    En? Netflix decided many years ago to expand it's streaming election. It has the money and wants to buy streaming rights to absolutely everything. The problem is that the copyright holders don't want to license streaming rights to Netflix. They're afraid of the new business model and are dragging their feet.

    This is really what's holding back streaming hardware sales. Apple realizes this and it is probably why the atv has been considered a hobby. It will remain so until reasonable prices are negotiated for online streaming.

    If apple is going to have a special event to promote or launch an atv product, it will only be when there is sufficient content available at a reasonable price.
