So we've all heard that Apple will be having a media event at 10AM Pacific Time on January 27, 2010. If it's okay with the mods, let's use this thread to discuss all of the rumors leading up to the event, and then update it with real announcements as the event unfolds! I'll start the rumor mill going...this is what I've gathered from sites like Mac Rumors, Gizmodo, and Arstechnica. 1. Apple Tablet (duh) - reports are that it won't contain an OLED screen due to production limits for that panel. 2. iPhone OS 4.0 - rumored to be only for 3G/GS (and presumably later gen Touches) and exclude first gen iPhone and Touch due to hardware. I figured this would start happening due to the advancement of architecture for the phones. Looks like I will definitely upgrade my iPhone the minute my 2 year contract is up. Application multitasking and apps running in the background are supposed to highlight the new OS, along with multitouch gestures OS-Wide. 3. iLife 2010 - Have to admit, for basic word processing and creative writing, I prefer to use Pages instead of Word, but work keeps me having to purchase Office for Mac every iteration. The only improvement I would like to see on Pages is on its auto spell checking (as you type) which is far inferior to Word. It catches the misspelled words, but doesn't autocorrect the basic ones (like teh/the) like Word does. Other than that Pages is pretty solid, not sure what else could be updated. I think the biggest improvements will come in Numbers and Keynote which significantly trail their Office counterparts. Along with these rumors, the following products are "due" for an upgrade, according to the Macrumors Buyer's Guide (as in, they are nearing or past the average time between product refreshes): Mac Pro Macbook Pro The new Intel six core server chip is scheduled to street soon, and is rumored to be headed to the Mac Pro. The mobile i5 Nehalem chipset is also streeting, and benchmarks have shown substantial improvements between that chip and the existing Macbook Pro C2D chips. Ideally I'd like a Mac Pro (with dual mirror RAID arrays to back up both my primary system drive and my music/personal files drive) due to its ability to run Pro Tools 8 and Logic Studio better than its mobile counterpart, but if the i5 really is as good as they say, I might opt to update my 3.5 year old MBP. Any other rumors or thoughts on the event?
