Looking interesting. Maybe this air thing is to do with all their products, not just a new one. Syncing wirelessy the iphone with your mac must be coming for starters.

In a mac forum which I don't think I'm allowed to post to. Basically half the forum are saying it's photoshopped, the other half say it isn't. Guess we'll find out soon.

Personally my predictions are:

- iTunes movie rentals (24 hour period)
- A new Apple TV which you can download directly to from iTunes
- A new ultra portable laptop. Probably won't have an optical drive, and may have some touch gesture technology. Will have flash memory as well.
- iPhone SDK is spoken about some more, and what will be the first things out for it. Plus various firmware updates.

There's usually a surprise or too, so I'll be happy if I get 3/4 right :smashin:

My girlfriend has just got in from work (my day off) and her prediction is "It will all be amazing but I'm sure it will be too expensive for me to afford". Typical situation, I buy it, she spends her money on clothes and shoes and still gets the benifits from both :suicide:

no mention of larger iPhones. As from tonight, customize homepage, multiple SMS, improved google maps. Basically all as leaked. iPod touch has now got mail, stocks, weather, notes... But for a $20 fee! Apple tv 2 just announced.... No need for computer, rent movies, hd capabilities----- rent movies from iTunes.....

Yeah the Apple TV 2 does sound extremely interesting indeed. So THATS how they are gonna get into people's living rooms.... no computer required! To the consumer, its a set top box in essence, and we are all used to buying set top boxes these days... but mention a computer and a lot of people are put off.

Clever, very clever.

Features sound nowt special though.

That looks as if you could snap it, it's wafer thin:D

I thought it would have a smaller screen than 13.3" though. That means it will have pretty much the same footprint as the normal macbook.
