    Well the Mac Pro is already out :rolleyes:, and the specs are different, otherwise it looks believable but is probably fake.

    I'm thinking this is fake. There's no precedent for a presentation outline ever leaking before, the Mac Pros have already been refreshed and probably won't be mentioned (except maybe in passing) at the keynote, and that's a super-lame One More Thing. XD Also, he'd never mention a point update of OS X unless it was directly connected to a new feature relating to some other hardware, ESPECIALLY not to point out "HIG non-compliance."

    Also, all signs seem to point to no optical drives being in the "thin" MacBooks, and Apple has eschewed the non-slot-loading drives for as long as possible. I doubt they'd start using them now.

    No chance. Certainly there are elements that will be in the actual keynote, but this isn't it.

    "One more thing..." being YouTube on iTunes. Woohoo. :rolleyes:

    Plus he wouldn't do something totally stupid like the YouTube deal as his One More Thing. If they ever did add something as pointless as that he would have probably mentioned it during the iTunes part of his presentation.
    EDIT: emw beat me to it. Glad I'm not the only one who thinks that sounds totally lame.

    Definitely a fake. Within the first few lines I caught an error.

    16Gb iPhone for $499 - same as original?

    the 8Gb when first released was $599 ...

    Mac Pro already out ..

    Just a lot of stupid stuff mixed in

    Some of these notes will probably come true, I think the iPhone SDK seems pretty accurate to what I expect.

    I like the idea of a 720p iSight, seems like the right time to update this.

    I think the "one more thing" in this list is pretty pathetic, doesn't really build up to much.

    I've been putting off getting a new computer until they release one with Blu-Ray support. Not that I will get one right away, but the sooner they introduce it, the sooner it will get into other computers in the line up.

    I think they were trying to say that when the iPhone first came out, the 4gig was $499. So that would mean a 16gig at the same price is 4x the capacity.

    Also, this says that they reached their 1% market share goal. There's no way that they sold 10 million iPhones yet. It was only a few months ago that they had sold 1 million.

    Yeah.. typical MWSF keynotes begin with a little more Yay-Apple. As in..
    We've sold n copies of Leopard.
    There are now n million Mac OS X users.
    There are now n million users of Mac computers.

    I've never seen one get directly into business. :)

    Nice try though!

    the one more thing is youtube in itunes?

    what an anti-climax THAT would be!!! :eek:

    and a macbook with an eject button? lol!!
    isnt that a step backwards in design terms compared to what we have currently?

    nice try, but we'll all find out in 5 days time!

    I'd sooner have an iSight with better video quality at the current resolution -- better low-light sensitivity, smoother flesh tones -- than have the current stuff at even higher resolution.

    The iSight is still among the best of the webcams out there, but have a look at all the webcammer videos on YouTube and you quickly get a sense for what's wrong -- poor resolution, funny flesh tones (often purple or green tint), poor white balance, poorly lit, dark and shadowy and grainy. It doesn't help that there's usually the harsh light from a direct source somewhere behind or above the user. Webcams were just not meant for making quality video.

    What indie label supports DRM? .... the only reason my stuff isn't on Plus is because i didn't have the option...

    Indie labels mostly are pretty small, 30 wouldn't be a big numer of labels to join, mac pro already released, isight HD seems nice, but not neccesary because i think internet speeds aren't fast enough for such a quality...

    1 - I don't want a thinner machine
    2 - I don't want an aluminum machine
    3 - Apple probably won't give me what I want

    I just want a Macbook updated with an LED screen (more resolution would be nice but it probably wouldn't happen), perhaps a penryn CPU. But what else is there? A new graphics chip would be nice but the Intel x4500 hasn't been released yet unfortunately, the X3500 doesn't look like a ton of improvement (if it even exists in a mobile version), and Apple probably won't go for a discrete chip. iSight HD? What for?

    There's no point in an HD iSight, too. Some of the things are believable (the smaller, stupid details), but I'm not sure Apple would fix an upper limit to iPhone app prices. 30% also seems like an immense commission.

    I like the description of the iPhone SDK and the ability to "sell" freeware through the iTMS, but this is clearly bunk.

    Or "a lot of issues and complaints users had" :)

    There is no way what so ever that the keynote transcript would be leaked. FAKE

    I'm not so sure what the use would be. You tube videos are limited to something like 10 minutes long. They are more geared towards something you would watch quickly; as if you thinking of something and then searched for it, or watching featured content that you see when you get to the website.
    If you were going to take the time to download the video, why not just watch it then and there?

    The only use I would think of is if you knew you were going to be away from wifi and planned on showing someone you would see later.

    Maybe, and this is youtube related and perhaps more worthy of "one more thing", they would fulfill the rumor that you would be able to record video from your phone and upload it directly to youtube. Who knows?

    Why does someone take the time to come up with a fake transcript?

    Is it the same kind of people that go around electronic shows and turn the TVs off?

    Still an X3100? Come on. At least a 8400GS. Even if it was a fake transcript, still sucks.
