    Excellent! The Keynotes with Steve are always entertaining, and hopefully he has some great new products to introduce! Glad to see that he is feeling up to the keynote.

    I'm shocked who would have thought of Steve giving the Keynote. :D

    Seriously though I never had any doubts. We will get to see him in his now famous turtle neck and jeans. I'm anxious to hear more about Tiger and an actual release date.

    iTunes 5 and Tiger please. Is that so much to ask for?

    Is this such a surprise, really?

    He's given the keynote speech for the last few of years that I know of - why would he not?

    Santa Jobs, last year someone said, he/she was not surprised with this news, and I said "It's like when mom says: this year we will santa on X-mas" ... I've been a nice guy this year, you will get an E-mail from me with my wishlist... (It's on the way) ;)

    Of course he has to be there. Who else is going to debut the 17" PowerBook G5? :D

    I predict 2 dozen new ipods... and as many months of delays for 2.5GHz PM's.

    I really like watching that Steve on stage. Especially when he announces a lot of cool new stuff.

    iLife '05

    I have a strong feeling that we'll see iLife '05 at MWSF 2005. There's also a possibility of Tiger being released that time too - that seems unlikely to me at this point. I'm looking forward to watching the delayed QuickTime stream too, since I have QT Pro...

    Fantastic sales reports! Exciting developments! Wonderful new products! Astounding new software! Thrilling celebrity appearances! Amazing demonstrations!

    I expect to see it all. In other words, same ol' same ol', and that's good news.

    Rare Keynote

    I remember when he got upset while giving a demo on hooking up a camera and it wouldn't work. He threw the camera on stage and said he couldn't do the demo. It was around 2001. He was very frustrated. I wish Apple would provide access to all keynotes online.

    Compared to recent years, there really hasn't been a whole lot of speculation about this MWSF. Maybe because everyone knows Tiger is still a ways off. monitors were recently updated as were ibooks and imacs. The PBs may get yet another miniscule G4 bump at best, and the G5 is sorta dead in the water stuck at 2.0GHz, with only a trickle of 2.5 GHz models, and still way too hot to get into a powerbook. the ipod also was recently updated. so that leaves emacs and maybe some flash based ipod. Whoopee! I have lower expectations for this MWSF than any I can remember in the past 10 years.

    My early predictions:*
    (*subject to change)

    - Usual blahblah about how well the new iMac is selling, iPod is still huge, iTMS doing well in all countries.
    - iLife '05
    - Mac OS X Tiger - More new features shown off, provisional release date given.
    - iTunes 5 - Slight GUI tweaks, Better Album art features,
    - iPod Mini II - 1Gb FLASH storage. Similar form factor but smaller unit and better battery life. Retails at £129. Current iPod Mini 4Gb discontinued.
    - eMac - Speed bump and updates.
    - Powerbook - Now using Freescale chip.
    - Powermacs - Sorry the 2.5's have been taking so long, they're now flowing freely.
    - One last thing...

    I'd venture a guess that iLife will have to have some basic home app that appeals to the whole "rest of your life" marketing campaign they have. What could it be?

    GarageBand = music creation
    iTunes = music playback
    iPhoto = photography
    iMovie = video
    iDVD = photo/video delivery system

    What's missing? Any ideas?

    Oh, I don't know, perhaps something to do with his recent cancer surgery? ;) No one really knew if he would be in well enough shape to give the MWSF keynote, but this is great news indeed - Stevenotes are always great!

    Oh, Jobs has to be the person to debut the 17" G5 PowerBook alright, no doubt about it, and he will - but not at MWSF... :p :cool:

    This is good news, it's just not the same otherwise.

    What's with the negative ratings? :confused: :rolleyes:

    This year will be BIG

    Not sure if it will be done at MWSF, but I'd say signs are leading to:

    iLife '05
    Keynote 2
    AW 7.0
    iPod Photo get support for Keynote presentations
    Updated Powerbooks (but by far insignificant even with a G5 as opposed to the One Last Thing...)
    OS X Tiger

    And...

    An iPod , but a whole new direction in iPods...
    Wireless, videophone using h.264/AVC on the Sprint Wireless Network.

    Not kidding, watch it happen. Sprint already has a deal using all Apple Quicktime servers for wireless media. apple patented the wireless iPod design. H.264 is revolutionary. Wireless broadband on ubiquitous networks is here this year....

    Add it up yourself...the next killer app.
