    Apple is known as its products are convenient, practical and powerful.

    Now it has released iPad. What's next breakthrough? CPU? Intelligent Technology? Or others?

    Talk anything!

    I don't know, but I really hope its something that we will be happy to see and something really unique and ingenious like the current trackpad was...

    They've had lots of patents related to the cooling of chips in their portables. Maybe they'll create a unique way to keep our laptops cool. Either this might mean that they can really increase clock speeds and keep a thermal window similar to what the current chips produce today.

    or

    maybe they will keep modest clock speeds while removing fan noise.


    idk :confused:

    The only think that would be keep Apple from doing this is water leaking in through the Usb or any other ports. What about the vents?

    Otherwise I would so buy one. :cool:

    I've thought about this.. the ports can be closed off (sealed shut) and it won't need vents because it will be liquid cooled. fanless design

    They did hire that guy that specializes in wearable media - so my guess is iPants. Surf while you sit - I just hope the keyboard isn't on the crotch - that could get weird in public places.

    Yeah. Liquid cooled by the torrential rains pouring upon it while some psycho stands outside wearing nothing more than rubber shorts, a tacky plaid fuzzy mock turtleneck, and a stylish (for 1940) cap holding a golf club way above his head. Tempting the gods to "do something about it", he blinks in awe at the wonder that this magnificent device from some parallel universe actually refuses to shut down while submerged in water.

    I can just see the coroner's report now: "Victim found on 9th hole, soaked from head to toe wearing very nice wool kilt with some kind of latex bicycle shorts underneath, melted nine iron fused to hands, holes blown through feet, look of awe on face. Macintosh notebook lying nearby, completely blackened by the blast of lightening - totally destroyed. It appears it was one of the new waterproof series, but it's still not idiot-proof."

    Not so weird

    The keyboard location could be fun if find the right person to do your typing - but that might make it illegal to use in public.

    I don't really see any breakthroughs on the speed side of things. When stuff like design gets an overhaul though. That's usually a breakthrough.

    Solar charging. Never need to charge if outside.

    sorry, but adding an Intel chip isn't so much a breakthrought, but just catching up with the others...

    So using the entire aluminum chassis as a heat sink is not good enough now? :)

    Intel chip

    So the switch from PPC to Intel wasn't a breakthrough. LOL
    Oh your right that was just catching up the others. LOL

    I'm laughing with you not at you.

    Well, more of an aligning with the rest of the crowd, than catching up, right?

    Possibly something touch related. A swivel screen model perhaps with a stylus (even though Apple seem to hate stylus') would be great for artists and engineers.

    I think we could very well see a true Apple TV in the near future. Essentially an ACD with a built-in Apple TV and some HDMI input. And hopefully a DTV input as well.

    And

    Lets add a cable card to this list and make a product that could actually change how we watch TV.
