    Well we all have our guesses and likelihoods on what will show, but what do you think Steve Jobs will pick as the "One More Thing." It's pretty much a given the Pro Machines will receive an upgrade because they're the last batch to complete the transition.

    Since they're really pushing HD with HD quicktime trailers and Blu-Ray, I really believe the "One More Thing" will be the displays *crosses fingers*. It just has to be because I'm sure they're going to get a big revamp, and possibly drop the prices and the 20" display. If I can recall there was some big hub-bub about a 42" display? I, too, am praying for the built-in iSight and IR sensor. Well here's hoping, because my 20" ACD isn't really handling all I'm using it for.

    What do you guys think?

    I don't know if there will be "one more thing..." - there wasn't last year, mainly because the whole thing was about the Intel transition.

    I dunno, maybe merom MacBook Pros?

    I'd bet Mac Pro and XServes is right out there, and one more thing being an iPod/iPhone or MacBook Pro update of some kind, with intel chips upgrading much faster then IBM/FreeScale Apple will need more events to release Macs,a nd for now they will just have to release more stuff each time



    Or release stuff with out an event

    It will not be the phone. Once this event gets started, I'm fairly certain that Steve will want to be very transparent about the cell phone.

    This isn't a last thing on the list of new stuff deal. This is big, iPod big.

    I predict that the "one more thing" will be that leopard is available at the moment the keynote is over.

    (okay, I don't, but wouldn't that rock?)

    No. I certainly wouldn't want an OS that hadn't had any beta testing whatsoever!

    Oh right...;)

    I guess they'll stay with Intel then. Though no one had expected this... phewww.:p

    Nah, I believe the one more thing will be the iPhone...:D

    Giving that this is WWDC, I think most of the focus will obviously be on OSX, which is going to be available in full 64-bit or 32-bit versions. SJ will introduce 64-bit dual core for the MacBook Pro and iMac during the general speech. The one more thing will be across the line Quad-core 64-bit Mac Pros. Orders will be taken for Mac Pros immediately, with shipping being in early September.

    No iPods other than a mention of a couple of iTunes alliances. They'll save the big news with them for Paris next month.
