Pregame Speculation

With the Apple event a mere 30 minutes away, I’m pretty excited to hear what’s going down. There’s already been “leaks” of the MacBook Air’s spec, but I’m hoping that Apple will surprise us and make something more interesting than a simple hardware update. Maybe make the MBA even thinner, or even cheaper? However I don’t think Apple will drop the price on the MBA, because with the supposed 11-inch screen, it’ll be encroaching on iPad territory.

Apple Event Tomorrow

Rumors have been surrounding this event ever since Apple announced it, and there’s good reason for it- it’s the first Mac-related event Apple’s had in a very long time. The lion on the invitation implies that the next version of OS X will be called OS X Lion. Name aside, I’m willing to bet that it will be a more significant update than Snow Leopard was. Hopefully Apple will reunite Aqua or make a new UI, as Mac OS X still doesn’t have one unified interface. Garageband, iTunes, and Quicktime all have completely different interfaces, with Quicktime being rather iOS inspired, and Garageband having wood for some reason. What does wood have to do with recording music? The MacBook Air is most likely getting an update as well. I doubt that there will be two sizes as some people are rumoring, as having additional sizes would fragment the Air line. Back in the day, Steve Jobs made sure to cut Apple down to making four main computers, not 30+ like Dell or HP.
