Your predictions for 2013?

What can we expect for next year?

My predictions, assuming we see an iPad mini in 2012:
Another evolutionary iPad; slightly thinner, better camera, A6, Lightning.
iPhone 5S
Apple will sell more iPads than HP sells PCs.

What do you think?

No new iPhone.

iPad 4 (an iPad 3 but with Siri and lightning dock connection and A6 chip like iPhone 5) Will also be bigger at least 10.2 inches (bigger than S G Note and bigger model S G tab 2). Available in a wider variety of colours.

iPhone 5s with an updated 2 GB of RAM, and a new 9 MP camera to replace the current 8 MP sensor.


And angry people.

iPhone will sell 200,000,000 phones, breaking the 2012 sales record by 40,000,000 phones.

The iPhone 5F will bring NFC and fingerprint scanning for unlock and purchase validation.

2013? Whadda you mean 2013? Ain't the world suppose to end December 12, 2012. Sorry, couldn't resist.

2013...lets see...

1) stocks tops $1000 because they won't split the stock most sensible publicly traded company would.

2) Me kicking myself again for selling off 19 of the 20 shares of stock I was given back in 1996.

3) Me not winning the psychic of the year...yet again. Although, I will win it in 2015.

My prediction

I predict 2013 will be the year of the Apple television set, with Apple's announcement followed by (or even preempted by) a bunch of competitors, not just Google TV but other big players.

Forum users and columnists will discount the chances of Apple's success because the technical features aren't everything we could imagine they'd be, not all content providers are onboard, and Apple expects us to pay Apple prices for this new toy.

However, with its foot in the door, Apple will have entered a new market, mini-revolutionized it in some way, and will get a good percentage of that market as it evolves. Apple's real advantage won't be patented interface techniques but its total integration of hardware, software, and services.

And then they'll be some kind of scandal like antennagate or a new maps app and we'll all get distracted and stop talking about television sets.

nVidia is going to make a killing via their ARM based chips. Expect something at CES. It is sink or swim time for AMD. Maybe their new ultra low power chips that are still struggling on Brazos can make some headway against Atom in the Windows 8 tablet market. Their new Jaguar core, set to replace Brazos, will probably show up at CES too.

Removal of ODD is taking on the DVD player
Game centre in OS-X is taking on the Wii
Apple TV is taking on the DVD player and parts of cable (which set-top boxes have a HORRID UI at present. Don't you just hate TiVo?).

What's next in the battle of the living room and the effort to tidy up the mess of cables behind your modern day TV set? More cloud services to reduce the need for physical media? Ability to record live TV and gaming onto the cloud?

Sound? More content on ATV to make cable less relevant?

Some random thoughts, I am sure Ive is pondering already

Hell would actually freeze over should that come to pass. Or the end of the world. Take your pick.

Internet based Apple TV with a la carte channel choices. Comcast and Verizon will increase rates for internet service if you don't buy the TV package with it.

And a Mac Pro mid sized tower for prosumers.

Not sure about an iTV. For some reason I think Apple might announce it in Jan 2014. Apple tends to announce NEW products in Jan (original iPhone and iPad).

Ok, lets play the guessing game....

No retina iPad mini, no retina Macbook air and no retina iMac
iPad 4
iPhone 5S, S being the moniker for speed/storage
No iTV
No $1000 stock price for Apple
More ongoing legal battles for Apple
Announcement/deployment of Mac OS X 10.9
One more iteration of iPod touchs
More Thunderbolt peripherals
Lighting become standard in all the iToys, more Lighting "supported" hardware
Updated AppleTV

And more a wish than one prediction: New Mac Pro
