So Apple's in its 30th year? Maybe they're gonna use the extra Keynote time for a look back in history. But I really just hope it's to show more new things. :p

this probably means some new products that will be revealed in keynote will be the first generation goodies....

although Appleinsider says iTV won't be ready for several more weeks, that doesn't mean Apple won't announce it. that could take some time.

presentation of Leopard will likely eat some time as well.

and I think some movie deal with some major studio might be coming too....that usually eats some time.

what I am trying to say is that Jobs may show off some stuff that needs lengthy presentation of how they work and above things may be some of those.

Expectations are pushed higher and higher teetering on the brink of total collapse!

But seriously, this only seems like a good thing. Can't imagine any way it would be bad.

Btw, that picture of Steve is kinda creepy. They don't have a better one?

In my imagination
Don't Go Crazy Now

I hope that us end users don't go crazy expecting Apple to unveil some new amazing tech device other than the iTV or (hopefuly) a full screen iPod. I just want Apple to unveil the simple stuff that will keep them ahead of the pack.

1. Full screen iPod (may not happen though)
2. Updated displays (needs to happen... not that I don't like the current ones...I just think that they need an update)
3. Crazy new Leopard features that blow (the already obsolete) Windows Vista.
4. Full featured iTV (hopefully with that Mac OS X Lite that I keep hearing about)

And even if this stuff doesn't make it's debut at MWSF then who gives. I will still put my cash in Apple stock.

The way the attendance at the keynote is limited to certain groups vs. last year when it was open to all attendees makes me wonder if there a treat or something under the seat/goodie bag as has happened before and they're limiting seating to people who've....ehm paid their dues if you will. Just a thought.

I'm really curious as to what's coming out. I hopt the true video ipod comes out. I've been waiting on that for a while...and wanting to upgrade from my 3g ipod which is too small for my music now. Though, what with my upcoming cam purchase I doubt I'll be able to afford a new ipod for a looong time even if it comes out.

I think the extra half hour might be for Steve to actually do more than one slide concerning iWork. I am hoping that there are major advances to iWork since I find myself using both apps more than Office.

Less than a week to go. Thank goodness for Christmas money!

Lets think about this shall we? There are many things we can count on being shown, all of which take some time. Especially the software.

  • iLife '07
  • iWork '07
  • Leopard
  • iTV

iLife consists of five applications and Jobs usually demos all of them. iWork may even see a new application along the lines of "Charts" or "Numbers" which will be demoed as well. All of this and Leopard, and iTV? Two hours seems right.
