According to MacWorld, Apple Expo will take place in Paris from September 20 to 24, 2005. Apple has yet to confirm attendance, but has attended the show in force in the past, debuting multiple hardware and software offerings in the past. This year's show will take place in the same location as last year's event - Paris Expo, Porte De Versailles, Hall 1.

California.
Well, if Tiger is supposed to come out this month, what else is left to be updated? Hopefully nothing to do with iPods.

Yep. Perfect in time for a new redesigned Powerbook. Could it be because of Apple´s timetable that it´s taking place a couple of weeks later? Maybe, maybe not...

I hope we aren't still waiting for powerbooks but something deep down inside says" yeah you will be".

Oh well another free holiday that non mac users don't get...

Interestingly, there will be a four month gap (almost) between WWDC (June 6-10) and Paris Expo. Last year, the gap between the two shows was a mere two months. I'm pretty sure the Paris keynote will again be an event to look forward to.

Apple and Steve could show up at MacWorld Boston. Why not make the anticipated Powerbook G5 announcement here in Boston. The place where MacWorld started here on the East Coast.

Not without a monitor. I would think the iMac would be an excellent replacement and the fact that Apple stores have replaced their display eMacs with iMacs would suggest that as well. I expect price drops on the iMac line with a 17" monitor and an expanded 20" line-up with the next updates. Apple should retire the eMac.

As far as the Mini is concerned, my money is on it morphing like the iPod has, not too far from it's original purpose, but with some added goodies...like a PVR (Mini-Media) with wireless streaming to a home Mini-RAID.
As Tigger says, "can you just imaginate it?"

I'm surprised by the six month update. Lately the update cycle has been one year. We are expecting an update for the Power Mac anytime now. If we get the dual core, that would be a new chip.

Actually the 30" G5 TabletMac Video iPod PDA acts as a remote for the iHome (which accepts video streams from Airport Express Extreme which supports AirVideo from the new iClips Movie Store) At least thats what a "source"* tells me.



(* source may or may not be voices in my head, either way I'm gettin sued!)

Is it really that likely that we'll be seeing updated PowerBooks at WWDC in June? I'm thinking about buying one soon, but this is really making me wonder.

I figured the new PowerMac would be a speed bump since there hasn't been much G6 or dual-core rumblings of late; then again, I don't follow PowerMac that closely.

BTW, will Apple change naming conventions for the next-generation chip to get away from the Pontiac G6. It wouldn't be a trademark issue because they are in totally separate markets, but I wondered if Apple might opt for something new -- particularly, as with dual core, if the technology is fundamentally different. Talking OOMA.

Sorry

but I doubt there will be PB updates before NAB, much less G5 notebooks at NAB. At best, we will probably see an e600 core in a PB--hopefully the 8641D and not the 7448--and maybe even one (8641) in the iBook. See my other post #165 on page 7 under the page 2 thread "New PowerMac G5s and PowerBook HD at NAB? " The best hope of a G5 (if G5 = 64 bit) will be the e700 core from Freescale--unless of course IBM can perform a miracle with the PPC970--but that will not happen in the foreseeable future and I doubt very much it will happen at least until the next Mac OS, presumably 64 bit, is almost ready, if not a simultaneous release. (Sorry about the run-on!)
