There’s just 27 days before Steve Jobs’ keynote address at Macworld 2007. What will the future bring?
Meanwhile, with 47 days until Microsoft’s Vista release, history gets rewritten. By Microsoft.
First, the future. Apple’s plate should be full of delicious goodness at Macworld in January.
As with previous events, Apple isn’t providing many details of new products for 2007. We know about iTV but don’t know what it will be called or what it will do.
But I want one. Does Apple know how to market gadgets, or what?
Everyone is expecting a view of Mac OS X Leopard, and perhaps a shipping date. What else? iPods are new already. Ditto for MacBooks and MacBook Pro models.
The MacPro and Xserve are new, so don’t expect revisions, but expect more iLife ‘07 and iWork ‘07.
How about the so-called iPhone? Or a larger screen, wireless iPod. Or, a Mac tablet. How about an ultra thin 12-inch MacBook Pro?
How can Apple improve on the iMac? Or the Mac mini? See the problem Apple faces?
We’re worse than selfish children on Christmas Eve waiting for Santa.
The Mac future will come soon enough. It’s just 27 days away. As to the past, Microsoft Windows Vista honcho Jim Allchin seems to enjoy rewriting history.
What? Say it ain’t so. Forbes Magazine reports on an email Jim wrote a couple of years ago to Microsoft’s Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer which said if he wasn’t working at Microsoft he’d buy a Mac.
That’s a damning admission from Windows top guy, and praise for the Mac. It’s also very embarassing for Microsoft, so Allchin had to rewrite history, which he did in the Vista blog.
More humorous than Allchins retreat of the facts were comments posted after his revisionist view of his email rant to Gates and Ballmer. My favorite?
That was a rant, too, but it seemed to balance the scales, even if for a moment. Microsoft can’t change the past, not matter how hard they try. Apple? They’re changing the future now. It’s 47 days before the Vista launch. It’s 27 days until Macworld 2007. What do you think the future will bring?
