What will Apple announce at the Back to the Mac event? [Poll]

What will Apple announce at the Back to the Mac event?online survey

Apple's Back to the Mac October 2010 special event is tomorrow, and we want to know what you think Steve Jobs and company will announce?

The invitation betrays Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, but what about iLife '11 and iWork '11? What about FaceTime for Mac... and for Windows? A new MacBook Air is the hot rumor, is there any chance it could have a multitouch screen, and iOS layer instead of Dashboard and Front Row?

TiPb's WWDC 2009 iPhone Predictions

What a difference a year makes. 2008 saw the introduction of iPhone SDK, iPhone 2.0, App Store, MobileMe, and iPhone 3G, the latter two of which were announced at WWDC and prefaced a worldwide rollout that broke Apple's conservative goal of shipping 10 million units.

We've seen iPhone 3.0, the changes to the SDK and App Store, and now on the eve of WWDC 2009 it's time to think about what else we just might see one year later, and -- according to Apple -- lightyears ahead.

No one knows exactly what Apple is going to do. They make the cold war Kremlin seem positively chatty by comparison. That doesn't mean we don't have rough ideas. See, Apple likes their patterns. They like showing iPods off in the fall, for example, and they seem to like June for showing off the iPhone. So, based on WWDC 2008, the iPhone 3.0 Sneak Preview, and the more consistent rumors since then, we might be able to draw some educated guesses as to how WWDC 2009 might play out...

A Look Inside the "Let's Rock" Crystal Ball

Today brings Let's Rock. You know, Apple's yearly pre-holiday event. The one that the entire tech-verse has been chomping at the bit for since roughly 0.001 seconds after Steve Jobs left the stage at WWDC 08. The one that will answer: "What's next?"

But that’s all we know: Let's Rock, September 9. We don’t know what, exactly, Apple will announce, or even if Steve Jobs himself will be announcing it (though we certainly think so!) -- or more importantly for the end user: whether or not "OMG new firmware can has stability!!11"

However, that won't for one Jobs-forsaken minute prevent us from guessing!

A Look Inside the iPhone 3G Crystal Ball! Countdown to WWDC Predictions

Monday we asked you "What's the iPhone 3G Chip and When Will it Ship?". Tuesday it was "What is the iPhone 3G Going to Look Like?". Wednesday brought "What Surprises Will There Be in the iPhone 2.0 Software & Services?". Thursday questioned "What 3rd Party iPhone SDK Apps Will Be Available Launch Day?" Friday we ended with "What Will the iPhone 3G's Hardware Features Be?"

Now we're done with the HUGE roundups. The epic's over. And it's time to be honest here: roughly 0.01 seconds after Steve Jobs pulled the first iPhone from his pocket back at Macworld 2007, and it was us at TiPb who put aside our childlike sense of wonder long enough think: "Nice! What's the next gen going to be like?" And we've been thinking about it ever since!

Complementary, contradictory, obvious, confusing, all but confirmed or from left field via outer space, the rumors have flooded the internet and we've done our best to keep track of them all.

Just two days from today Steve Jobs takes Moscone Center stage for the sold-out WWDC keynote, and according to everyone and their newsfeed, announces the iPhone 3G. In eager anticipation, every day this week, TiPb asked you to tell us what you think the next generation iPhone will be, from 3G to GPS, release dates to price points, colors to casings, 2.0 software to .Mac .Me services.

Now it's TiPb's turn.

So come on, let's get in on!

Peering into the iPhone SDK Crystal Ball

Thursday brings the SDK. You know, the one that needs no other identifier. The one that the entire tech-verse has been chomping at the bit for since roughly 0.001 seconds after Steve Jobs slipped the iPhone from his pocket at Macworld 2007.

But that’s all we know: SDK Event March 6th.

We don’t know whether the SDK will be ready to code that very same day, who’ll be given access to it, how they’ll test for it, what type of approval process Apple will require, how apps will be distributed, how they’ll be priced, and most importantly for the end user: whether or not “OMG teh iPhone can has WoW!!11”

However, that doesn’t stop us from guessing!
