Apple WWDC 2009

Prior to all mac events i like to blog or vlog about what i am expecting to happen, and since i can’t vlog due to exam revision and time restrictions which prevent me editing..it will go here.

Generally for me all apple events can be a tad annoying as through them you get reminded of the people who came along to macs and apple products following the popularity of them, or follow them because they are seen to be a cool thing to follow. I follow Apple and mac things because i take a genuine interest in the company and its moves, and i love the products.  For years i have used macs, through various generations, and i was introduced to mp3 players through the ipod when my uncle gave me one when i was younger and they first came out.

I guess in a way this is why it annoys me that the things kinda become a trend and people treat it that way and use these events to spam twitter dailybooth and other shit with stuff thats only really reassuring themselves that they know what a mac is XD

That aside… what i think.

I’ve been following patents and rumor sites such as mac rumors this time more than i used to because i have taken a genuine interest in one product that will hopefully be coming out. A third generation iPhone.

The iPhone would apparently have a electronic compass, video recording, video calls and a front facing camera – could do db with that i guess ^^ and all of the features with 3.0 which seem to be leading upto youtube integration in such a way that you can upload videos from your phone.

I was thinking i’d make a channel for my iphone videos if this happened, but then i decided 2 channels is enough and i’ll use burnzy121…

There have been many leaked pictures of the possible phone depicting a matte finish, which in my mind looks so much more amazing than the current one. Another thing… they’re apparently (if leaks are real) removing the bezel. This would take away the silver bar and make it fully the colour it is… which would be kinda cool i guess =)

The leaked case also showed a button down the side – camera? and a higher up ear piece on the phone.

Snow Leopard is another thing definitely coming out, like the new iPhone OS. Im expecting Apple to pull out a suprise or two with this. At the moment it seems to be a OS release that won’t bring much other than performance improvements and provide a stepping stone for the next system… however i can’t see apple doing this as it would be foolish and too much like the Vista release Windows pulled… so im hoping Snow Leopard has more to it so when i see it tonight im like YES MATE!! GOING TO THE APPLE STORE TOMORROW!!!! 

I mean.. if they release a new phone i will go to the apple store / o2 to get an upgrade the day its released to i dont have to wait for restocks XD

Apple always have a wildcard… something we’re not expecting. Any tablet rumors i think can fuck off. If a tablet is coming out i’d imagine it would be out next year sometime. I am however liking some rumors that are circulating about some macbook changes which could possibly put 3g in macbooks.

This would be cool, and could be a lead into Apple releasing tethering for iPhones… would be interesting to see how it is run too and how people use it, like subscriptions etc…
