Macworld 2009 Predictions

As the mac world breathes (intended pun) a sigh of relief that Steve Jobs isn’t dying as evidenced by his letter to the public, he has spoken that everyone should have fun and fun we shall have.

Macworld bingo!

Everyone has their own take on what will come out at Apple’s (last) Macworld and these are some of mine.

  • New iWork 09, cloud options will be a mobile me add on, more collaborative engines (see enterprise) will have additional features linked to OS X Server 10.6
  • Short demo of Snow Leopard
  • Updated iMacs and Mac Minis probably even Mac Pros with the new display ports.
  • Another iPhone/ iPod Touch software update v.3 paid update for Touch users (where’s the love?)
  • 17 inch unibody mac (actually it’s expected since it’s the only portable that hasn’t been upgraded)

I don’t think that they’ll release a net book even though I’m secretly harboring for one. They obviously love the Air despite it’s limitations, namely price. But if Phil Schiller will walk on stage with one, then I will definitely be in heaven. Even if it will be priced in the $600 I will be the first in line to get one.

Can a device change the world?

Too bad there isn’t a book titled 2007 by George Orwell. If he did, it would be an Apple commercial today.

But today is 2007 and today the iPhone will be released.

Definitely there will be the lines outside AT&T stores as well as Apple stores to be one of the first with the miracle phone. As much as I didn’t want to be one of the millions of bloggers who will blog about the iPhone. But is it truly a remarkable device?

Last January in Macworld, Steve Jobs announced to the world that Apple will be making a phone. And like the Apple faithful people thought it was a great idea.

But this was entirely new territory. The iPhone enters a very mature market. A far different marketplace from when the iPod came out. This phone should be extra special for it to succeed.

The features and the concept behind the phone was totally revolutionary. One of the problems of all mobile phones to this date is that it was based on one form as Steve Jobs pointed this out in his keynote. Much like computers, the form and functions were jammed into the shape even if it was not the most efficient way of doing this. And this was the basis for the interface of the iPhone.

The mere announcement of the iPhone sent ripples through the mobile phone industry. We are now forced to look at things differently. But could the excitement to the phone live up to the hype? David Pogue’s article for the New York Times probably sums up this product.

Will now have an era like Before iPhone and After iPhone? Maybe? Because 2007 won’t be 2007 anymore.
