My guess is one of three things:<br><br>1.) Intel is going to start supplying PowerPC or PowerPC-like processors. <br><br>2.) Apple is going to introduce a device powered by an Intel processor. <br><br>3.) Apple will demo Tiger and introduce nothing. <br><br>
I don't think Apple's doing anything with WebObjects. I wouldn't be surprised to see it forgotten in the coming years - they certainly don't promote it. Then again, I don't know why they even bothered to move it to Java, other than to jump on the Java bandwagon. (maybe I just answered my own question)<br><br>
I predict no significant announcements whatsoever. Perhaps a few tidbits about the OS, to go with the standard demo of the OS. Outside of that, my only prediction for the Keynote is that there will be one! <br><br><br><br>CreativeGuy: For your "fix" of design software tips, tricks & commentary.

Apple has said it expects to announce the move today, these people said."<br><br>Apple Chief Executive Officer Steve Jobs is expected to make the announcement during his keynote speech at the companyís Worldwide Developerís Conference in San Francisco beginning at 10am Pacific Time (1pm Eastern Time).<br><br>The WSJ said Paul Otellini, Intel's CEO, may take part in the keynote address with Mr. Jobs. TMO has confirmed through its own sources that Mr. Otellini arrived in the San Francisco area Saturday.<br><br>The Mac Observer will provide live continuous text coverage of the keynote online. Apple is not providing live satellite coverage or online streaming video of the address to the general public.<br><br><br>TMO has confirmed Intel CEO Paul Otellini is in San Francisco and might be part of the Steve Jobs keynote at WWDC Monday.<br>The report said Apple "recently briefed IBM and other major software partners on its plans," but that "given Mr. Jobs's mercurial reputation," anything could happen and a "change" in the announcement could occur at the last minute.<br><br>"It couldn't be determined whether Intel has agreed to offer some modifications of its microprocessors for Apple alone or will sell it standard chips," the Journal reported, "nor is it clear whether Intel would supply other accessory chips for the Macintosh as part of the deal."<br><br>The Wall Street Journal reported on May 23 that the companies were in talks that could lead to Apple's adopting Intel microprocessors. CNET News.com confirmed Friday that Apple would switch to Intel processors and move its lower-end computers, such as the Mac Mini, to Intel chips in mid-2006 and higher-end models such as the Power Mac in mid-2007. The WSJ on Monday also echoed the CNET report that a transition will happen through 2007.<br><br>
I say it will either be a new device (like a tablet) based on an Intel ARM processor or a nationwide rollout of an iMovie download service based around Intel's WIMAX wireless or possibly even a new AIM partner - I-AIM<br><br><br><br><br>WWW.ADZOOX.COM & www.JACKWHISPERS.COM
