I was chatting with some friends today about Macworld 2008, and we discussed what we were expecting to see. I thought I would put my predictions here for posterity’s sake.
So here we go, in no particular order:
- iPhone SDK
Mentioned, but not released
- No new iPhone hardware mentioned (new hardware with 3g and gps announced at wwdc, released in October)
Correct (no new hardware, software update though)
- No new ipods
- Refresh to the whole portable line, speed bumps, led backlit displays
Wrong (not yet anyway)
- Ultra portable macbook, 13" screen, 3 lbs, SSD (flash disk drive), led backlit display, no optical drive, base $1600, top of the line $2000
Pretty damn accurate, although way off on the top end price.
- Mac Pro refesh, maybe all new look
Refresh a week before, same look
- Appletv refresh
What do you think? I am drooling over the ultra portable, really hoping to see that one. Also very curious what the iPhone sdk will be like.
Updated with results, these predictions were made on December 18th
What did I miss?
- iTunes movie rentals
- Time Capsule
