It's pleasing to know that in this day and age of the "by the time we ship this, there'll be faster/bigger hardware to make our software's performance tolerable" mentality, that the engineers at Apple still believe in optimization.

They must have all grown up on 1 MHZ Apple ][+'s or something. :D :D

Makes you appreciate all the hard work the OS engineers put into making MacOSX a kick-ass operating system.

Hey Sir Giggles. I was looking through some papers and I found a print out of your predictions for this year made in Dec 2003.

Lots of rumors seem to point towards your earlier predictions at this point. You got any updates or more detail?

Here it is folks for the 20th Anniversary!

in no particular order

1. NEW lineup of Cinema Displays sporting thinner aluminum bezels at 0.5" as opposed to the 2" bezels on current LCDs. Thinner and lighter with heat dissipation through the aluminum chassis

2. Dual G5 Xserves - no duh, seen that one coming.

3. SPEED bumped all-dual G5 towers with a modified form factor, to allow for 2 optical drives and 4 internal HDs.

4. 60GB Ipod with @home features, also including CD-quality line-in recording, larger, brighter displays using OLED technology. Steve will also introduce a slim-down $149 iPod.

5. Single processor G5 models for the entire iMac lineup, with new form factor allowing for a modular design of base and display.

6. Speed-bumped iBooks and PowerBooks.

7. one more thing.. that'll remain a secret. the little birdy told me not to tell anyone so I have to keep this one a secret.
