What will Apple do on Tuesday?
Well, Microsoft, Google, etc. made it through CES and did their presentations, now it is Apple's turn. I am on the edge of my seat on this weeks announcments. I wish I could be there.
I thought now would be a good time for me to make my own predictions of what Steve Jobs may unveil this week.
DISCLAIMER: These are my guesses as I sit here reading all kinds of rumor Blogs and with no knowledge of what really will happen, so please...no wagering...I just want to see if I am even close on one of these...
iLife '06 - updated favorites, plus some new things, like a basic video production tool for podcasts, iTunes version 5 with ability to backup video, FrontRow for every system and iWeb included will setup your own Blog or Podcast space (for .Mac users)
iPod - new 4GB and 6GB nano, now with video. new 80GB or 100GB iPod with bigger screen for better video.
Airport Express - now supports video and/or TV hookup for use with FrontRow.
.Mac - now supports automated backup of ITMS audio and video files. Blog and Podcast support added.
Intel inside - Low price wide screen laptop price starting at $599 and the mac mini price starting at $399.
Long shot predictions:
New device, using Intel processor, that replaces your DVR (maybe a Tivo dual deal since they were quiet at CES) that also has a wireless feature to communicate to things like iTunes.
Windows XP - all systems will have the option to run Windows XP OS and software inside OS X without a dual boot needed.
I will post a recap of how I did on Tuesday.
