  • Apple will release an improved Mac Mini. It will have media center capabilities, will sport a new design, Intel processors, and frontrow. It will feature all of this in a small case that will bring joy to all. And it will probably have some kind of ipod dock supporting a possible new iPod 6Gen that will have a touchscreen.

  • Mac Mini will be one of the new products - featuring Intel processors and Front Row. The Mac Mini will be more media based and may feature a Personal Video Recorder within the Mac Mini.

  • The next big thing will be an Apple tablet, the rumored Widescreen iBook will have tablet pen input and SMS-like motion feedback.

  • Adding full length movies to the iTunes Store, probably with Disney leading the kickoff.  Upgraded iTunes to handle the movie downloads also probable.  Changes to Front Row also probable.  While the Mac mini may be released at the same time it won’t be the “next big thing” unless it has TiVo like capabilities.  The product that relates to downloading full length movies woiuld be a full video iPod.

  • - Announcement of the MacBook (not Pro)
    - Intel Based Mac Mini
    - EOL for the current iPod Shuffle to be replaced with a new iPod.
    - iTunes will feature full feature movies.
    - TabletPC-like Mac device.

    if none of that comes to fruition:
    - announcement that Apple is EOL-ing all its products and focusing on growing red and green Apples. First product: the iOrchid

  • i think it will be a digital camera…or at least it should be.  what could be more “fun” and “new” than that?  besides, there needs to be a digital camera out there that is as easy to use as an ipod, with scroll/clickwheel access to everything.  digital cameras from HP, sony, etc. have WAY too many buttons and are obnoxious.  apple has enough experience with iphoto and isight to deliver a kick-ass hardware/software combo that’s as elegantly simple as the ipod.
