    What about an iCamera (still and/or video)? With wifi to transfer to your Mac, iPhone style OS X to allow you to email images, upload to a photo gallery, backup with .Mac or possibly edit in iPhoto/iMovie.

    Didn't they make a film camera in the early 90's that failed significantly? Around the same time as the newton.

    Yeah, but the macbook is already in their product line. That would be like the touch, it's an iPod after all...

    TVs. I mean, wouldn't it rock for them to be able to say 'OK, Apple TV...do you want an Apple TV too? Um....'

    I think you could probably just look at Sony (the company Steve Jobs seems to have modeled Apple after in recent years) and see future products:

    They've already got:

    • Computers

    • MP3 Players

    • Mobile Phones

    • Digital Recorders

    • LCD Displays

    That leaves:

    • Digital Cameras

    • Camcorders

    • Printers

    • Video Game Consoles

    • GPS

    • Stereos

    • Voice Recorders

    • Televisions


    I could *easily* see any of these being released by Apple.

    The next thing I would like to see them work on is expanding the AppleTV. It has so much potential and is only missing a few features to really make it take off; HD content, some type of DVR ability, able to stream to it from iPhone/iPod.

    You could be right, it does has some sense, but I still don't see Apple doing theese things, it just feels wierd, but after the renaming this could be a fact.

    One thing to cosider is just because Apple's tried digital cameras and printers in the past and stopped making them doesn't mean they'll never attempt it again.

    They had the Newton, afterall, and now we have the iPod Touch and perpetual rumors of a PDA...

    Something new that none of us will ever think of (or if we do and mention it here, Apple will stop development of it)

    I just remembered, wasn't there that whole Asteroid thing, the music recording device, similar to a Digi Box? I remember there being rumors a while back and Apple telling websites to remove pictures.

    Not forgetting that they won't allow the engine to be tuned. If someone does it'll disable the car. Then people can whinge that it's Apple's fault.
