It would be nice if he were to announce updates to the Mac Pro, Air at ATD, since WWDC will be all things iPhone.

Enough about the iPad already? I have one and it's definitely not magical. Also, as if he will mention 'the next innovation' from Apple... yeah, right.

It is interesting, however, that random news stories always come quickly after something that doesn't paint Apple in a positive light. It's ok, you can flame me for that... just my observation as a long time reader. :)

I think it would be great to use this as an opportunity to tone down the rhetoric regarding Google and Adobe. Apple doesn't do too well when it's fighting with its tech neighbors.

I'd like to see what all three of those guys have to say. Can't wait to see it.

And yes, Steve did seem very annoyed by Kara last time. It was kinda funny.

Wheras I think it is magical, so there you go. But there is a way to settle this difference of opinion: time.

I say that when we get to 2020 and look back on this decade, it will be known as the tablet decade (if not the iPad decade), just as the last decade could best be associated with the iPod. I think the iPad is going to change the course of technology. That's magic.

I like how everyone makes out Jobs as some evil meglomanic, yet everytime I hear him speak he comes across as thoughtful, considered, intelligent and passionate about his work. And he normally has a few good one liners as well.

I suspect this time will be no different and we will get one or two good bits of info.

What the...? Even *if* most people would say the iPad is "magical", does that mean he has to agree as well? :confused:

Thanks for saying that. Someone needed to. The guy is a class act, outside of these forums in the 'real world' he is respected. And he should be, look what he's accomplished. Those who bash him are jealous, ignorant, not that bright, I don't know but there sure is lots of SJobs bashing on this forum.

Watch out, Jobs!

I have the latest MBA, extreme base station, Atv and iPod. You better not make any of those obsolete. On a side note, on the nets I scored a vudu box with 1TB drive and wireless for $99 with free shipping. They rent and sell, ahem, adult movies. Works great.:)

Yeah, the two million iPads sold in 60 days was such a tragic event for Apple. Macrumors needed to cover that up as quickly as possible. :rolleyes:

What is confusing to you? I said the other poster and I had different opinions, so I explicitly noted that he did not have to agree with me. That's what it means to have different opinions.

He wasn't saying he has to agree as well. The post he was responding to said "it is definitely not magical", to which it could be asked, what the.....? Just because you don't think its magical, does that mean it is not magical to anyone?

I think your response was misdirected to the wrong exclusionary post.

There's no way Jobs is going to spill the beans on “next innovations from the Silicon Valley computer icon”.

Much more likely to want to discuss the Foxconn situation.
