…iPhone Apps = Apple Games?

iPhone Doom

Food for thought: Despite the fervor surrounding Apple’s announcement today, and the thousands of rumors that have surfaced as a result, the biggest change to the iPhone is going to be an already announced feature: Apps.

Many of these apps are going to be games, and so far, it looks like many of the major game manufactures are on-board and developing for the new platform, which got me thinking; could these partnerships develop into full gaming support for Apple’s full-sized computers as well?

Gaming has long been a missing aspect of the Mac experience, but a few key converts could change all that, meaning the iPhone Apps could be a door for Apple to use to enter the lucrative gaming market that it needs if it’s going to continue its growth and market share acquisition.

Makes you wonder…

…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.
