    I've also read there may be an update to iCal. Guess we'll have to wait and see the 28th.

    I'm super-excited to see if (1) the Intel Mini will be there and (2) Apple's rumored "media center" will be one it.

    I think the 12 and 17" MacBook Pro is more likely we give it credit for.

    I thin it'll just be an update on iTunes, the AirVideo thing and maybe maybe a MacBook. Not a huge event I think.

    You know that would be nice. I've had a couple PDA's but most of them end up sitting around cause it's one more thing to carry. I actually USE my blackberry, cause it's a phone and I carry it everywhere. I'd love to see a Mac native PDA if it was on a carrier I could use.

    i dont have no mac's
    i think any sort of pda device will never happen because no one ever uses them really....

    i feel that the mini release would be pretty appropriate to get even more systems with intel processors in their lineup, that and it is their inexpensive computers that people can sorta buy on a whim to check it out and also simply because it is the most affordable mac out there.

    I'd like to see some more theme updates to iMovieHD 6 and iDVD, as well as more themes to iWeb. There are far too few themes for iWeb, and iMovie has the potential of being SOOO much better if only they released a bunch more themes. How about holiday themes? Birthdays, seasonal, etc? And Im talking about new themes in the iMovie 6 style.

    Wishful thinking, I know.

    Anyhow, I must resist the urge to sell my PB 12" in lieu of a new MacBook Pro. That is, unless a 12" MacBook Pro comes out in the future and all the Intel/Universal apps bugs are worked out. Judging from the Tiger 10.45 update, it would seem they have had a lot to work on.
    1) Powerbook G4 12" 1.5 GHz, iWork, Ilife 06, Logic Pro, Office 2K4
    2) A PC with a bunch of stuff in it.

    I'm ready to buy a Mini - actually just stopped by here first then was going to do the order.

    Now I'm going to wait.

    If one of the things intro'd is a Mini-tel might still go with the G4 version anyway if they discount it.

    But if the mini-tel has the rumored 3.5" hd and 64 mb graphics then .... who knows.

    If that is the case then I'd also hope for a companion version of Final Cut Express HD - that's one of the apps I want to check out. OK - I know a mini isn't the ideal platform for doing that but - hey - at least I can check it out.

    And maybe something like QuickTime Pro 7.1 - I hear 7.0 has several problems under Tiger.

    Either way - now I have to wait. Another whole week. And maybe wait even longer for the order to be filled.

    - sigh -

    One thing I definitely DO NOT want is an announcement that Apple is swiching to Windows.

    Oh well - such is life in the technology game.

    I disagree.

    Likely: new iBook/MacBook (the name change is hard to tell. The MBP indicates change to MacBook, while the iMac indicates otherwise), 17" MBP, Mac mini with Core solo.

    Unlikely: MacPro, updated Cinema Displays, Bluetooth Mighty Mouse, 12" MBP.

    Bluetooth Mighty Mouse would be hard to implement since it has a sensor. Battery life would suffer. 12" would be going back to the non-widescreen standard. I don't think Apple wants to have any pro or prosumer models without widescreen. It's something to differentiate between the consumer and pro lines, just like I think Solo vs. Duo is going to be. iBooks and PowerBooks were too close. I think they want clear lines now.

    Extremely/retardedly unlikely: Apple PDA, phone, boom box, "real" video iPod.

    Apple already tried PDAs. It did not work. Apple already has a phone deal with Motorola. They're called the ROKR and the SLVR. I'm not even going to address the possibility of Apple making a boom box. And I don't think Apple will update the big iPod again this soon. People would be PISSED that bought at Christmas.
    'cause when it rains, you know it pours.

    Just a wild thought.

    Seem to recall two recent news releases about Apple patents for touch screen technology.

    The first was that some sort of patent had been awaded circa early Jan.

    The more recent was that a seperate touch screen patent was applied for earlier this month.

    Might be something to do with the patent was awarded. Among other things.

    Like I say - just a thought.

    I find it funny that you think its more likely that they reveal a 17" MBP, when they have just begun shipping the 15.4" model. This is a 1.6" difference.

    Granted that the iPod video sold many more units than the MBP will, yet you find that to be very unlikely.

    Im not attacking you, you may be correct, I just find your logic interesting.
