Hey all,

Just thinking out loud here, but 2004 was christened by Steve Jobs, 'Year of the Notebook' and 2005, 'Year of HD'. So what will 'Year of 2006' be? I've thought of a few things:

Year of the iPod
Year of the Minis
Year of Change
Year of Cheese Fries?

Who knows... what's your thoughts?

Also what's occurred to me is that a new version of iLife has come out at the last few MWSFs... so are we ready to see iLife 06 next week? And if so, what will be new? Can't wait to see the new iPhoto - i'd love to see what they've thought of now.

Audio, video, high definition, that's all old news.

Apple will make 2006 the "Year of Olfactory Computing", with Macs that come in difference fragrances. Those blueberry iMacs and Tangerine iBooks will be back, but actually smell like blueberries and tangerines!

And next year will be two-thousand double-oh-seven, which means it'll be the James-Bond-themed "Year of the Spy Gadget", with a secret decoder ring coming with each iPod and Macs that spray poison gas if enemies try to tamper with them.

The Year of the Livingroom.

Considering 2005's Year of HD, it was pretty much a bust with the video iPod topping out at 320x240.
480x480 doesn't count because generic MPEG-4 sucks!

No, it'll be like the Willy Wonka Chocolate factory. Everything will be edible! iPods, Powerbooks and iMacs.

It's the biggest Macrumors conspiracy of all. Steve Jobs = Willy Wonka!? :eek:

ROTFL! That's great!

Well, I say it well be "Year of MacIntel"
- or - "Year Steve publically announces that he will retire at years end." :eek: God, I hope not!
- or - "Year we take over Microsoft" (like in the Capital One commercials with the warriors going around pillaging)
