  1. A game box?? Where do these analysts get this… They obviously are scouring these boards…

    I posted several times (as a joke) that Apple will be debuting a gaming console… Low and behold, mr smarty pants analyst is now predicting a “game box.”


  2. His assessment is not that far out there. Think about it, the easiest way for Apple to counter the Micrsoft Xbox/Media Center combo is to not come out with a “Game console” at all, but build it all into the mini. Put in the DVR functionality, wireless controllers along with keyboard and mouse and you’re all set. Front Row is your interface…all games could be stored on the HD and can be purchased via iTunes along with your music, podcasts, TV shows and Motion Pictures. I know, i’m dreaming but it makes sense. The only problem is getting the developers on board for ANOTHER gaming platform.

  3. I would still like the iMac shape/style plasma HD TV with built-in core duo Mac, WiFi for streaming movies (Burst suit is quiet, so suit may be resolved and silence is part of the agreement) & internet access, iSight (i.e. Front Row) for full screen walk around iChat and ultimate teenager games (girls dancing, boys shooting) plus being HD ready for connection to the HiFi or a new video Airport Express.

    Apple seem to be putting iSight into everything, so it must be for a reason. Maybe because (like SJ said about music) it is universal across all cultures.
