"It's all about the Brick." What the hell is apple talking about now? First, there was something in the air, and now it's a humble brick catching our attention? What "brick" are they referring to? Thinking literally, the first computer related brick that comes to mind is the power brick. Some people have suggested that the power brick would be incorporated into the laptop itself. Personally, I don't think that's right. Then you would have to increase the thickness, and it would be hot as hell when plugged in. Others have said there will be a USB hub in the power brick. Not a bad idea, and certainly feasible. I can see that happening. But let's dream for a minute or two. What could apple do with a power brick? They could get rid of it. Perhaps they'll have the next Macbook charge through USB, or some other port. Then you could use one of those inconspicuous ipod-USB wall warts to charge. This is something I could see Apple doing; it's a little out-there, but not too far out that people won't buy it. What if Apple wasn't just referring to the power brick though? One of those mockup pictures showed a thin notebook with a large brick next to it. I thought to myself, now, would Apple remove the computer from the Macbook? If you think about it, with everything moving to the web and cloud computing in the foreseeable future, it almost makes sense. To put the "computing brick" in your backpack (assuming you're a student) and just take out a paper thin screen, trackpad, and keyboard. Just my thoughts on the upcoming release. I'm probably wrong on everything, but oh well. Twere nice thoughts. Peace.
