SPECULATION: What If the AppleTV became a DVR to spite NBC?

This IS NOT speculation on what we’ll see on Sept. 5th. This weekend I was thinking about the NBC vs. Apple thing, after explaining it to relatives, and a thought occurred to me… There has been long standing rumor and speculation that Apple would turn the AppleTV into a DVR. At the time, that never Read more…

It’s Official – Apple Special Event on Sept. 5th

Well, Apple has officially invited major press to a special event on September 5th. Already the speculation machine is getting out of control.

Netflix coming to Mac in 2008

Steve, the developer of Netflix’s download service, gave Gizmodo some explanations about the selection of movies on the service, the reason for a lack of Mac support and so on… Basically Mac support is coming in 2008, and isn’t already here because Apple doesn’t license its DRM. (Of course, if you have Parallels or Fusion, Read more…

SPECULATION/OPINION: Will the Mac ever be #1?

Next week we have a “Townhall Meeting”. It’s Mac focused. We’re going to be getting something new. I don’t know what exactly, and this article is not a speculative piece on what that might be, but when discussing the possibilities with a friend yesterday, the conversation shifted a bit, and it got me thinking about Read more…

Reader Feedback Request: NAB Predictions

I don’t want to make predictions that I have no basis for (believe it or not), and I don’t really have a clue as to what to expect for NAB…so I thought instead of posting some of my own, maybe we can discuss it as a group, and see what we come up with… So, Read more…

SPECULATION: Is Leopard’s “Top Secret” feature a 3D Interface?

Infinite Loop has an interesting speculative piece about what Leopard’s “top secret” feature (and the reason for the iLife and iWork delays) might be that Leopard will feature a 3D interface. Now, they’re not suggesting that images will float above the screen in 3 dimensions or anything, just that the desktop itself and the interface Read more…

SPECULATION: Sony adds TV content to iTunes…could Movies follow?

Last week, Sony began experimenting with using iTunes to deliver content by adding shows like “Spider-man”, “News Radio”, “Till Death”, and more to the iTunes Store. These are hardly the cream of the Sony crop, but a nice starting point to try out the Apple helmed distribution method. I hope, if this is successful for Read more…

Leopard is coming in June or I’ll eat a Boot

You may have seen this Digitimes post this week about Leopard being delayed until October. Apple has responded that this is completely untrue, of course. These kinds of things are going to keep creeping their way onto the Internet until the day Leopard actually ships. It’s inevitable, and it’s not even something I can say Read more…

Prediction: AppleTV will NEVER be a DVR

I’ve been reading posts about the AppleTV in anticipation of the device being released (hopefully) tomorrow. One post in particular caught my eye from Apple Insider earlier today. The article’s main focus is on ThinkEquity analyst Jonathan Hoopes’ opinion that the “Apple TV is an ideal conduit for multiple services including DVR, paid-for content, gaming, Read more…

SPECULATION: Leopard Coming out May 11, 2007? I doubt it…

Switch To a Mac has an interesting theory on why Leopard will be released on May 11, 2007. I don’t buy it, but I think the research involved is sound, and the theory has much more weight than “an anonymous source told us” that most of the sites post these days. I still don’t believe Read more…
