It's Showtime

Apple revolutionized the world of computing with the Mac. Then, they transformed the world of portable handhelds with the Newton. Next came their blockbuster paradigm shifting innovation with iTunes and iPod. Their OSX and associated software applications--iPhoto, iDVD, Keynote, Pages, iWeb, GarageBand, and iMovie--have begun to fulfill the promise of putting the creative power of computing into the hands of ordinary users. On Tuesday, many experts believe Apple may be ready to do it again. Will it be a new digital movie downloading service similar to iTunes only faster and easier? Will it be a new video handheld device like iPod only bigger and better? Will it be the much anticipated iTalk mobile phone? Will it be some combination of all three? Will it be something else altogether? Only Steve Jobs knows for sure. The one thing we do know, when Apple sends out invitations for a product announcement press conference, it's showtime.

Anticipation, . . . it's making me wait.

Your assumptions match the rumors I have heard as well...I am putting my bet on the phone. People are pretty content with the iPod, no need to introduce a new handheld until interest dwindles...

I hope your right. My phone needs replacing.

It probably doesn't matter what the release is because almost anything Apple comes up with, I will pretty much want to have.

I wrote this morning over at my place that Apple has become a Toyota to Microsoft's Ford. Thanks to the iPod, which is now a cultural icon, the superiority of the rest of Apple's products is becoming an assumption. Resistance is futile!
