Let's start one - perhaps merge it with the pics thread.

Comments and questions encouraged as news occurs.

It should be tomorrow at, I don't know, 1PM EST I think? I didn't look at the time, really, but usually it's 1 PM.

The rumours roundup at MacRumors is so incredible though, I bet 99% of the population will be deceived by this keynote :s Gosh, they can't introduce 10 new products at once!

As for myself, I'd be happy if they introduced new iMacs, a brief talk about Snow Leopard and iLife 09.

I think it's sad that the whole event is being overshadowed by Steve Job's illness and Windows 7. It's unlikely MacWorld will give us anything nearly as big as Windows 7.

That's a matter of perspective.

I'm still hopeful for a 32GB iPhone. My original 8GB one is in need of an upgrade :p

I want to see a removable battery on the iPhone and more countries with the factory unlocked versions.

Andy Ihnatko said this:

1/3/09 7:05PM
First afternoon in SF and I have already dug up the coolest top-secretest Apple news of the year. I haven't even seen a RUMOR about this.

1/3/09 7:23PM
(I was told solely on a "be ready when it's announced" basis, so I can't even hint. But it immediately elicited a "NO WAY!!!" & happy grin)

Looks like there will be a big surprise at MacWorld. As for Andy, he's a pretty well known guy in the Apple community, so what he is saying is more than likely the truth :p


This is from his official blog:

I now have a piece of information that will put a big damned smile on the face of any Apple fan. Just a big, fist-pumping expression of glee.

No, I can’t tell you what it is.

Yes, I’m just a big no-fun jerk.

See, before I was told this thing, I agreed to go off the record. Then I was told that thing, and I immediately said that I took back what I said about going off the record because this was just too damned cool. But…a promise is indeed a promise. I wouldn’t even be saying this much if I hadn’t cleared it first.

Now what?

Can't wait for the first and last ever Shillnote. Updated Mac Mini and 17' MBP are rumored.
