Post your thoughts on what you hope to see Apple annouce at WWDC this year!

Personally I hope to see.
-iOS 6
-Maybe iTV
-MacBook Pro refresh with retina display, IVY bridge processors; remove the disc drive; better battery or with retina display the same battery life as the current model; 8GBs of ram comes standard, ECT.
-If they are going to refresh the iPhone and iPod touch there I hope to see a 128 GB model (64 GB just isn't enough.)
also maybe an iPod touch redesign, something a little more like the current iPhone (flat bottom and sides)
-Refresh the whole mac lineup (MBP, MBA, Mac Pro, iMac, Mac mini)

Mac Mini with an updated video card is what I really want, so I can replace my iMac (it takes up way too much space on my desk). Not counting on it though lol

iOS 6 too, but I think that one is kind of guaranteed.

Texas, unfortunately.
I'll never get what I really want, but it would be cool if they decided to leave OS X and iOS completely separate. No cross platform or sharing of features or anything like that.

That would make absolutely no sense.
Perhaps not in today's world, it seems like everyone has a smartphone these days and likes things to work much the same on their computer. I just kind of miss the days when you needed a syncing program to get anything on your phone from your computer, and the two platforms were not really being designed with each other in mind.

Just silly ol' me though.

I get your point but fear not. As of now it doesn't seem to be much iOSification of OS X beyond

Hey you can keep your grocery list in sync with you iPhone/iPad
Hey you can actually use the notes app and not have to worry about what device you kept the note one.

I understand the fear of dumbing down but thus far I'm not seeing any serious encroachments to the way we use and love our Macs save for Sandboxing.

Apple announces that they were just joking the past 5 years and really do care about the pro's.

I don't want to see the MBP get any smaller, don't drop the superdrive. Add USB 3.0 keep firewire around and don't change the form factor.

A reasonably priced 6-core Mac Pro (The current 6-core is an extra £900+ over the base quad and even more expensive then the dual-quad (8-Core) MP.

That's all I honestly need for now. I'm interested in what they do with the Macbook Pro, but I won't be in the market for one until next year now...
