  • Apple will release

    -mac mini intel that will be the center for the livingroom digital hub. DVR, FrontRow, Remote. possibility of an airport express video or built in feature to the mac mini to connect to other macs in the house to act as the hub.

    -Video ipod with a bigger hard drive size than most people will expect. This ipod will also have some sort of an “mini” mac os giving it more cababilities for adress book and other apple apps. Possibly built in camera.

    -intel based ibooks with a duocore but not as fast as the the macbook.

    -Introduction of a new software that hasn’t had a hint dropped yet.

    -Finally the release of an audio interface that will help aide in the recording of podcasting. Most likely will be usb and possible firewire for those who have older macs.

  • it will be the apple Tablet computer, but branded as a video iPod with the functionality to run osx apps as a bonus feature, the way video was a bonus feature on the 5g iPod.  it will have a ~4inch touchscreen, bluetooth, and onboard speakers. 
    then two days later microsoft will announce their competitor, as advertised on  it will sell about 1/10th as many units.
