K since MWSF is going to be "big" even for Apple another hub device is possible. Now if everyone can look at their OSX 10.1 booklet they will notice that with Ipod for the "Rip MP3s" category there are only two more categorys. Now since we all know Jobs is a control freek (if you dont read any biography on him.)
So if there is a new digital device it will be something along the lines of iCam following the "i" theme. This will be a Digital Video Camera, a Digital Camera or a combo of both. This will be cool but not cool enough to get everyone raving but enough to make it very usefull much like the iPod or Airport. It may look like this

I hate to be negative... but what about digital cameras can Apple improve? You wouldn't want to 'sync' a camera, would you? So why buy one from Apple?

absolutely. Apple is primarily a computer corporation and at this point needs to focus on a seriously lagging computer line. Right now, Intel and AMD based duallys are pounding apple in the DV department. Since apple is a niche product with that niche being video/imaging, they need to bring on the wrath of the G5 ASAP. I love my g4/500*2, but the time I spend rendering work right now can easily be cut down by switching to and AMD/intel based system. That coupled with the fact that my software will need an across the board upgrade to use OS X, and the other side doen't look so dark. Apple needs, for their price and limited upgrade path, a solution that blows everything else out of the water, and they need it now, especially with OS X growing in software support to justify our continued work on that platform. A still camera is the last thing R&D bucks need to be drifting towards.

Is that...

A digital camera... or a video camera...

A low priced Apple video camera would be great... I'd buy one immediately...

But the problem with apple is that there stuff is too expensive. An iPod is one of a kind but I sure had to shell out quite a bit of cash to have it!

The iPod is expensive... in Canada it is $599! At least in the US it is only $399!
