Macworld 2008: What's in the Air? Not WiMAX.

Picture 2-16

The internet is all abuzz over the latest Macworld rumor - AppleInsider has spotted Apple banners with the slogan "There's something in the air." My guess hope is something rather less revolutionary than WiMAX Apple devices or a 3G iPhone - both of which I consider very unlikely. WiMAX is just not widespread enough yet and too much of it is controlled by Sprint and Clearwire. No way Apple is going to get in bed with Sprint given their relationship with AT&T, and Clearwire is just too small.

Instead, I'm hoping for .Mac services on the iPhone. Radically improved .Mac services have been something I've wanted to a long time. What I'd really like: Google services integration, iWeb mobloggling from the iPhone, and access to .Mac's online storage. Please Please.

Meanwhile, check out what our forum members think is coming at Macworld.

Macworld 2008: What's in the Air? Not WiMAX.


You know!! That is pretty wierd!! I had the same thought last night!!! .Mac becomes huge and everything is integrated - even the iPhone. I hope we get: Access to docs folder and be able to edit them, ToDos, Notes and Cal all sync with iPhone. I even had one more thought: The .Mac price is raised, but existing users are Grandfathered! Who knows? Just passing along my flash of insight!!
