Bzzzzzzzzzzzzz. What’s that? Bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. What’s that buzzing? Could it be? Yes, it’s the Apple rumor mills. I know, I know. Really lame. Sorry. But as we’re drawing closer to the September event in San Francisco, software and hardware rumors, predictions, and wild stabbing guesses are flying about the Apple universe, and I can’t help but buy in a little. So what are the internets saying? Most of you have probably seen the “leaked” images of the Snow Leopard packaging, but if you haven’t, you take a look and decide if it’s real or fake. Only two bits a gander:
So what else is Steve or the to-be-named replacement going to share with us? Well, apparently a fair amount about iPods and iTunes. It’s about time for the iPod Classic to get a makeover and the iPod Touch has a lot of firmware update potential in the wake of the last iPhone 3G and 3Gs improvements. We’ll see. I haven’t heard anything about new Portables, but it’s been sounding like the iMac is going to look more like the Cinema Display, which already looks more like the Unibody MacBook and MacBook Pro. Sleeker, more compact, overall awesomer.
And yes, of course, the Apple Tablet. As is tradition, Apple is tight-lipped about development, and it looks like we’ll have to wait another three months before a formal announcement. But hopefully we’ll get some answers about Snow Leopard’s “fine tuned”-ness. Get excited friends, and check back with the blogs for August’s coupon. Chumbawamba.
