I don't think it's too early. I do have trouble with my bi-annual prognostications this time. <br><br>Besides some iApp upgrades, I doubt there'll be much to announce. (That will probably guarantee there'll be much to announce, so this post can come back and haunt me, and I'll have to quit posting under the current handle and sneak in as a newbie under the nick of "DastardlyDingusMcGoofus" or similar... )<br><br>Any guesses from your good self?<br><br>
I've been saving money for over a year to get a Powermac, but it seems like there isn't going to be anything new in that line at this Expo. But, I'm certainly going to wait until after its over anyway, who knows?<br><br>For some reason I feel its not going to amount to much on the hardware front, but I have no reason to expect that other than a hunch.<br><br>
The ole hunch scenario seems to be the only pointer to SF for me as well. I have a hunch that Apple will be talking up future tech and iPod improvements. I also hope they will introduce the beginnings of their tablet plans. But that's probably unrealistic.<br><br>Funny thing; I haven't heard much 'out there' about MWSF at all. It's spookily quiet, in fact. I DEMAND TO KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON!!! There. That feels a lot better.<br><br><br><br>
Nah, we want the altivec IBM chip and there is no way Apple is going to do both x86 and PowerPC. I really know very little about this subject and even I can think of so many reasons why Apple would not want to use AMD that it is more than just a little unlikely.<br><br>MachOne is right, it IS spookily quiet, although MOSRs did put out some cautious projections. But, even then it was mostly fence-sitting. <br><br>At this point I don't care if they update the processor, just bring the other specs closer to some of the PC hardware (8X AGP, system bus, full DDR RAM support, etc.) If that doesn't show up I may wait longer to buy mine, just because you know its coming any time now.<br><br>
