Now THAT would be nice Of course a full iTunes store (TV, video) in Ireland and an announcement that Apple will forevermore observe currency trends when setting their prices in different countries would also be nice

Hopefully iTunes will take a leaf from the new Amazon music store and lower their song prices. Wishful thinking eh?

13.3" is small enough imo. We need something to take the place of the 12" Powerbook. But knowing Apple they'll find some way to cripple it. Everytime I got to buy a new laptop they do something to put me off.

I was under the impression Steve was always the main man in the mac world when a keynote was delivered. ( i am only a year using mac)


I am waiting to see what apple are going to do with apple tv. If i like what i see i will buy it. If i see no new ideas or something that does not appeal to me i will not buy apple tv. This mac world is all about apple tv to me. Although one never knows what is going to happen........

Also rumors of 10.5.2 being released at MacWorld, of a sub-notebook minus any optical drive, and of an iTablet for 2008.

So I was listening to the year end MacBreak Weekly and Andy Ihnatko mentioned the idea of a "big iPhone". A tablet like device that would be bigger than an iphone but smaller than a laptop, that would hit a 799$ pricepoint. The more the group discussed it (the wantability factor plus the delay of the iPhone SDK) it began to make a lot of sense to me.

It's highly plausible that Apple were so reluctant to even announce the existence of an iPhone SDK nevermind a release date because the SDK was capable of writing programmes not just for the iPhone but for unreleased computers and devices.

If anything though, I for one would be disappointed if Apple released a touchscreen ultraportable (another rumour) and would not even consider purchasing it. Similarly, a tablet/PDA device with no phone capabilities wouldn't even bleep on my radar.
