    So, what will it be? An expected product? An unexpected product? A service?

    Will there be "one more thing..."? Will Steve nix the Keynote dessert because it's already been leaked? Will we be satisfied but unsurprised or will this be a testament to Apple's ability to keep secrets, leaving us shocked and awed?

    Will Apple again shake the foundation of the digital world we know or merely nudge it?

    I'm thinking probably the ultra portable will end up being the one-more thing if there is one.

    The old Beatles rumor sure is quiet this year.

    It sounds like you know something. :rolleyes:

    One more thing tends to be odds and ends that didn't make it for MacWorld. I'd be happy for a Mac mini update or the Apple TV. I wouldn't expect much else.

    I think this year's "one more thing" will be the iTunes movie rental program/Apple TV update. Either that or the i-rack

    "One more thing...... owners of the pre-2008 Mac Pro will have to purchase an entirely new system if they want updated graphics (aka 8800gt), as Apple does not intend to provide an upgrade path to that card".

    I think Apple will do something totally unexpected like debut the first OSX enabled Apple ROBOT!!!
    Who wouldn't buy a robot from Apple? :D

    maybe the ultralight, since everone is expecting it, and will be wondering where it is, so he'll use that as his "oh yeah, almost forgot" this year. Just a theory.

    An Apple PBX

    I think apple should introduce soon an apple pbx, along with new iphone applications to deal with the pbx. VoIP, ISDN, IAX, SIP, POT. With posibility to use apple usb modem as FXO. With more and more iphone in businesses and more and more hard to used Linux based PBX which do offer lot more posibility than the conventional PBX, there is really a big good deal for apple in there.
    itunes like interface on open standards but better than asterix and with web access, can be run on any mac.

    Afelio trying to get out but a year waiting now.
    May be apple take it over, who knows...

    Starface not really userfriendly with their web interface and elastix still hard to configure and time consuming for business that need to be up an running on time

    anyway, only some days to know if.

    Macworld Expo 2020; Steve's last keynote. After giving his final farewell and thanks, he turns to leave the stage, pauses and turns back and says, "But there is one more thing..."

    From backstage, out walks the Apple iRobot.

    One more thing...

    .mac will allow you to keep your movie rentals for 48 hours

    As server capacity will be more needed, we up the price point to fab 149$ per year.

    One last thing:Mac OS X upgrades now distributed via .mac exclusively :mad:

    one more thing, and front row makes your top five? the current front row isn't even that bad.

    was it ever? :)

    i'm going to be bold and say that there will not be a "one more thing" this year. all the big news will be revealed up front, just like last year.
