So the big media 'event' that's happening... tablet mac??
I saw someone post this news article from the beginning of May: http://www.engadget.com/entry/1234000790042949/.
Now I know that many of you have probably already seen that but it suddenly caught my attention again. Apple have been going on about this big 'media event' and all of the media is supposed to have been getting ready for a huge announcement. Now we've all been hoping that it'd be a mac mini upgrade or a ibook upgrade etc. But come on, that's not really world-media kind of stuff. The iPods have got a huge market share and should they be releasing a video iPod then yeah a big media event could happen just for its release. However, the iPod line got a big revamp last Tuesday. So its not gonna be about iPods.
What new product that could really boost the Apple line, draw in people who like the design and simpicity of Apple hardware, be something that could get sold around the place nearly as much as ipods and basically hasn't been done yet by Apple?? The long rumoured Tablet Mac of course!! Think about it, its not a huge product step away from the iPod. People don't think of tablet pcs as being pcs as much as cool tools for taking notes and making presentations. Just like they don't think of ipods as hard drive media storage devices and only as music players. iPods are cool and iTablets will be cooler.
Hell, I'd go and buy one the day they came out (wallet depths considered and checked first of course).
What do you all think? Possible release? The media event will take place pretty much bang on two months after the patent news was released. Companies often only get patents for devices very late in the day to stop rumour machines rolling and rival companies stealing ideas or bringing down the prices of their competition.
Food for thought.
