Figured I would throw my hat in to the ring and forecast what the enigmatic turtlenecked leader would announce tomorrow, and of that – what might be of particular interest to me…
1) Mac OS – “Hobbes” : I would buy a copy of the new version of Mac OS if they really did call it “Hobbes” and did nothing else of note. They should certainly be running out of big cat names by now… so it’s got to be Hobbes or Garfield..right? In any case – I would be very curious to see if and what would be previewed towards the next version of Mac OS. It’s feeling somewhat stale at this point – and I rarely leave Windows 7 these days. Is there enough coming to capture my interest?
2) Macbook Air refresh: While it wowed a handful of folks back when it came out – it was followed by quite a few very impressive laptops (in fact – the Lenovo X301 I use these days is phenomenal) that stole all the thunder. I would be curious to see how this ultraportable evolves.
3) Free Mobile Me: This has been making the rounds – a free tier of mobile me. I suppose it makes sense. Activesync is one of the least heralded yet compelling technologies from MS.
Safari update, iphone refresh and potential price cuts (i think ipads will drop in price – but perhaps not tomorrow) are the other possibilities…
