Arstechnica has released this year's Macworld Keynote bingo card (http://arstechnica.com/staff/fatbits.ars/2008/01/06/mwsf-2008-keynote-bingo) (iPhone version available (http://prototypecreative.com/iphonebingo/)).

So, what kind of squares can we expect in this post-Leopard world? iPhone software updates? Booooring. Might as well add a square for Mac OS X 10.5.2 while we're at it. But since this is Macworld, let's trot out some of the few remaining Mac-related hardware fantasies.

Of course, they took a risk by releasing the card a week early, and sure enough, the "new Mac Pro" square is already out of date (http://www.macrumors.com/2008/01/08/apple-announces-penryn-mac-pros-and-xserve/).

A hundred bucks on the middle horizontal row!
"boom" is quite guaranteed somewhere.
Some HD stuff as well and blu-ray kind of likely
Movie rentals seems to be very sure now
And the XServe has just been updated.

I thought in Bingo everyone was supposed to get a different card with slightly different spaces and in different orders so that not everyone gets bingo at the same time.

In the Mac World, everyone is a winner! (or a whiner)

Ah yes, but if they hand them out all the same, there's the hope that more than one brave soul will risk shouting Bingo.

I love Macworld Bingo - it's just a pity that most of us can't play it live. I wonder if it would be equally fun playing it as a drinking game while watching the Keynote later... although could be worrying if you have to have one each time Steve says 'Boom!' :D

i would put the money more on the top left bottom right diagonal with

mac market share touted
wouldn't it be great
no new displays

(sorry ACD lovers ... i simply suspect that they would have timed it together with the mac pro release)

Instead of meaning that Steve says "boom," maybe the Boom square should mean that something crashes during a demo. :eek:

mmmm Seems to me as if this board needs to be updated? Or just 2 more free spaces? :D

What you're looking for is Keynote Bingo, the application (http://bingo.keynote.se) where you can make your own bingo card randomly selected out of 100 different events.
