Video iPod maybe? Maybe the video music store.
I wish they would do a live vidcast.

Over on Macrumors they are expecting new iPods and PowerMac updates.

I'm just kidding, but I hope its some new iPods, because my mini is far too small. And I refuse to buy a Nano.
By the way, has anybody seen the new Intel commercial. I found it over at the Maccast, and thought it was strange. You can click here is see it.

G5 upgrades to the powerbooks? Maybe A smaller version of the 20gb IPod. Both of those would be nice...15.4" Macbook Pro 1.83Ghz 2GB RAM 80GB HD Mac OS x 10.4.4
1.8Ghz P4 1024mb RAM 2x80GB, 1x160GB, 1x250GB HD's Windows XP and SuSe Linux 9
IPOD 6gb Lime Green Mini

I've got a feeling this won't have anything to do with the Mac computers.
Probably either a video iPod, or something along those lines like the streaming video airport.
If there is anything on the Mac front, it may be a switch to the 7448 PPC G4 that was introduced by FreeScale in June. That would replace the 7457 currently being used.
The 7448 is a 90nm part vs the 130nm 7457, officially goes up to 1.7Ghz at launch (7457 only goes to 1.3Ghz 'officially'), and only consumes 10W at 1Ghz. That is actually a significant improvement in terms of power over the 7457 that is currently used in iBooks, PowerBooks, and the eMac. The 7448 also has a 200Mhz FSB vs the 7457's 166Mhz FSB, 1MB L3 cache vs 512k L3 cache, and improvements in the execution pipeline and AltiVec. It would extend battery life while increasing performance and probably reliability (less heat).
Here's hoping, anyway.
