    What plans do you have for Apple and its products over the next 10-15 years?

    That should cover just about everything, I guess.

    I guess the answer would be: we are not talking about future products.

    more trial software would be cool - just playing around with motion 2 and shake trials very very good

    might even buy some?

    more offers for us faithfull users - free songs on iTunes would be nice

    and free upgrades to Quicktime pro every year ! (once you bought it once that is)

    live webcasts of apple events as they happen !

    o and product roadmaps for the next 2 years would be nice lol

    I think I'd just ask them for a signed blank check.

    That would pretty much cover everything else.

    How is the price for Apple installed RAM determined and was the conference room filled with robust laughter once it was announced?

    It's unbelievable how much they charge for ram, I bet they make a ******** of money from lesser-knowing customers who add memory in their bto machines.

    Where's my copy of iWork you're supposed to send me for lying to me repeatedly about Tiger arriving at my house on the release date?

    Oh, and where's that 3 GHz G5??

    My questions would be as follows:

    -Regarding QuickTime-

    QuickTime seems to be spreading its influence into media-using areas besides computers. Do you expect this trend to continue, and what forms might it take?

    -Regarding Mac OS X-

    What is Mac OS X to you? Of course, it's an operating system, but I'm thinking more in terms of branding...if you continue on the current course, you'll eventually reach Mac OS X version 10.9. What will you do then - release version 10.10 or make the jump to version 11? If you opt for version 11, how significant would the changes have to be to make a version 11 designation worthwhile - on the same magnitude as, say, 10.3 to 10.4, or greater than that?

    Hi,

    thanks - those questions seem to make sense. I am not expecting an answer to the second one. But the first could be interesting.

    Cheers

    Hi guys,

    thanks for the feedback. To sum up - you like to know:
    -"Why do you continue to make iPods with such delicate surfaces?"
    -How do you keep OS X off of PCs when switch to intel.
    -Whats the future of firewire.
    -QuickTime seems to be spreading its influence into media-using areas besides computers. Do you expect this trend to continue, and what forms might it take?

    I will let you know the answers. Will be in about 2-3 weeks.

    I have to say the answer is YES. We already now that there is a black model. And it is called just iPod.

    I will ask about Intel but don't expect any answer.

    I was thinking more along the line of "a contract where I receive free Apple hardware and software for the course of Apples life span." ;) :)

    "why bother with a remote control for the new G5 imac when you could have incorporated a nano to do the same thing", or "when are you going to make an ipod a remote control as well" :eek:
