With WWDC looming upon us I think its time for some predictions! Could it be iPhoto? 10.2? or soemthing else cool? Well put your predictions here. Only 5 days left! There is something brewing!
With the release this past week of the eMac and new TiPB, it seems to me that even more will be in store. iBook speedbumps? But I also think since it is the developers conference, OSX is going to be the star of the show, and the hardware will have to wait until MWNY.Originally posted by Macmaniac

This is one of those questions I have for everyone saying G5 G5 G5. If the G5 really is a 64 bit chip that means that developers would have to write new code to specifically use the 64 bit instructions. It would make NO SENSE AT ALL for apple to just spring that on their developers by releasing hardware with a 64 bit chip without getting their developers in line beforehand.Originally posted by mcrain
On the other hand, if the newer OSX doesn't manage chip usage, and a new chip is coming out that would require developers to code specifically for it, then at a minimum, announcing a new chip would also make sense.
this seems the most plausible to me. basically following suit with the imacs.Originally posted by sjs
The 12.1" iBook morphs into the eBook.
The 14.1" iBook gets a better screen and a G4. Soon.
yeah, the only question is does x.2 become available then, or is it just a preview that will be available sometime after...?Originally posted by lilscoy
I don't think there's a real doubt that X.2 will be there. Here's what it says on Apple's WWDC website:
"During the week of May 6-10 in San Jose, California, WWDC 2002 attendees will be the first to explore the powerful new capabilities of the next major release of Mac OS X. And that's just for starters."
Here's the website, for those who haven't seen it:
I agree on the software part, but are you on crack? Speed bumped PowerMacs two months apart?!?! Not a chance in HELL Apple would ever do that.Originally posted by sjs
No G5 at wwdc.
PowerMacs get a boost to 1.2 ghz.
Everything else is around software:
expanded Mail capabilities
expansion of digital hub capabilites
PowerMac's boosted to 1.4 ghz
iMac G4 boosted to 1 ghz
PowerMac goes through the roof. DDR. 400 bus. G5.
Mac lover jam up the internet. Wintel cries uncle.
what makes you think that apple haven't announced it to key developers (adobe, macromedia, etc...) already? I'm not saying that the G5 is going to be released at WWDC (having a laugh!), but isn't it fairly normal for apple to keep their partners up to speed on developments?Originally posted by wrylachlan
