QotD: MWSF 2005

Question: What do you expect to see at MWSF 2005?

My Answer: I don't even care. A new iLife? Yeah, whatever… iTunes is fine, and I use it constantly. iPhoto I use sometimes. iDVD and iMovie I almost never use. I just want a damn AppleWorks update! I doubt we'll see that. A headless iMac might be nice, but a G4? Bah.

ThinkSecret reports on iLife '05 and Keynote 2, but the thing I find most intriguing about that is that iDVD 5 is rumored to support multi-layer burning. Won't do much good for those of us with current SuperDrives, but a nice way to move the technology forward (if it turns out to be true). GarageBand update? Yawwwwwwwwwn. This same ThinkSecret report talks about Keynote-related products, "Crossbow" and "Slingshot," but I doubt either of those are also known as "AppleWorks 7.0." Same is true of "Sugar."

Of course, I know more than I let on, and I may or may not be misleading you. 🙂

  1. I'm thinking about getting a new headless Mac as a server, replacing my b&w G3/300. But that depends on its spec.

    btw, you forgot the (already officially confirmed) iPhone.

  2. I've been drooling over iPod Minis for a while now. I hope there's something new coming for that line, since I plan to buy one soon.

  3. I'm most interested in the iPhone stuff and the iMovie HD. Native 16:9 would be so awesome.

  4. i'm easy to please. i'd like to see Safari 2 already. ...but that's for 10.4 so i guess i'll have to wait.

    i guess what i EXPECT to see is steve in a turtleneck.

  5. I'd love to see a GarageBand update. I think that's one the most interesting pieces of software Apple has ever released for the mass market.
