…Bingo is being played at MacWorld again?

MacWorld Keynote BingoSpeaking of MacWorld, John Siracusa from Ars Technica has once again created the Keynote Bingo card to end all Keynote Bingo cards, and it’s the perfect way to get interactive with Jobs’ Fanboy-gasm of an event.

Featuring some gimmies (New Mac Pros, Leopard vs. Vista, Mac Market Share Touted) it also has some dream based risky squares (MacBook Thin, Dockable Mac, New Apple TV) so it’s sure to be fun for everyone.

Just make sure to keep an ear out during the conference for a few “Bingos” if Steve manages to play his cards right.

…The Stevenote is over?


And the huge news from Apple is…

Not much.

Some gaming news, a few Leopard updates, a rather lame iPhone update, new Safari Beta, and Sarafi on Windows.

This iPhone thing better be huge, or Apple fanboys are going to have to start deflating their expectations.

Anyone get a Bingo?


…Steve Jobs plays Bingo at the WWDC?


As Steve Jobs’ second most anticipated moment quickly arrives, it’s time for another round of Keynote Bingo. For this year’s WWDC, the Swedish Bingo team has created a program that generates your Keynote Bingo template out of 100 potential keynote events, so there will be plenty of tension as each ‘one more thing’ arrives. Get your pens and retirement home ready, ‘cause it’s Bingo time!

…The iPhone has a few secrets?

Jobs might want to keep a few of the iPhone features under wraps until the full release, but Actioncorp TV has picked through his MacWorld Keynote with a fine toothed comb and has come up with a few details that didn’t make it into the presentation, such as “what the calendar application looks like, how you’ll view traffic in Google Maps, another way to scroll through long lists and how ringtones may ultimately work”.

…Macworld is hard to predict?

Just The Begining

So with Macworld fast approaching (get ready for an Earth shattering keynote at 9 am PST), I thought I’d do my part and make some predictions for what is “only just the beginning”. Though these are completely guess based and rely on no inside information or fact gathering what so ever, none of the other predictions are going to get very close either so I might as well see how good I am with a crystal ball.

  1. No iPhone. It’s just too good to be true. Any time everyone gets their hopes up for an Apple vaporware product, Steve pulls something brand new out of his back pocket that shocks and awes and most of all surprises. The iPhone has everyone guessing and predicting and gambling, but I think it’s all based on hopes and dreams and not an actual product. Though Apple will probably eventually come out with a phone (and not just a Moto Razr add on), I don’t think tomorrow is the day.
  2. Apple TV. No, not the iTV, but an actual TV made by Apple. They’ve already announced the iTV, and wet the palette for everyone looking to spread some Apple joy beyond their computer, so why not make a TV to plug the iTV directly into. It could even have special functions when connected to the already mentioned iTV. A 30” monitor (which Apple already makes) isn’t much different from a 42” TV, so I don’t think it’s too much of a stretch to imagine Apple in the living room. Throw in a camera, add Front Row integration, and you’ve got yourself a multitasking, multimedia, multifunction powerhouse.
  3. New monitors. They’re going to have iSights built right in, better specs, probably a wider range of sizes, and if we’re really lucky, freaking laser beams.
  4. No new Airport. Though I would love to see one, everyone is still trying to hash out the exact specs for the next wireless band. Until everything gets sorted out, I don’t see Apple taking any gambles with maybe it will maybe it won’t technology.
  5. Smaller MacBook/MacBook Pro. They have an untapped market for those who need/want an ultra portable, and the MacBook brought the sexy back to smaller, so why not continue the trend and offer a sub 12”er?
  6. iLife update. Given.
  7. Something to do with games. Since iTunes now lets you download and play games on your iPod, why not integrate some sort of gaming feature into the iTV? Especially with Intel now on board, Apple has got to go the way of the game.
  8. New iPod. This was all anyone could talk about the last time Apple decided to make a special announcement, but has gotten swept under the rug this time as everyone salivates over the thought of an iPhone. Add a full body widescreen, change the way you press and click and twirl, add battery life/storage space/brightness/etc., and you’ve got yourself a hit. The iPod has always been the bread and butter of the Apple lineup, so why not assume they’re going to keep it so fresh and so clean, clean?

So there you go, the DYH Macworld ’07 Predictions. Though they’re about as likely to come out of the Steviness as anyone else’s predictions, it’s worth a shot. Just remember, if any of these come true, you saw it here first (and I have magic Mac powers).
