  1. Macworld will be held at San Francisco’s Moscone Convention Center January 8-12, 2006, and the keynote address will be held on Tuesday, January 9, 2007 at 9:00 a.m.

    Wow.. you will wait here for a Year.. 😀

  2. Apple’s marketing strategy regarding the iPod line has thus far been brilliant.

    1. Make some minor changes to the iPod video, drop the price, throw Microsoft off balance and force them to react.

    2. Focus the market on the new nano for the Christmas season, taking the major focus away from hard-drive-based players (which hurts Zune’s launch much more so than Apple’s overall iPod sales).

    3. At MWSF ’07 launch a full-scale movie attack:
    A. Full-Screen iPod video (720 x 400)
    B. iTunes adds additional studios.
    C. iTunes adds HD downloads – Price TBD.
    D. iTV
    E. HDTV’s (32″ and 42″) with iTV built-in (50″ to arrive later).

    F. iLife 07″ and iWork ’07 will arrive as well, but the huge focus will be on movies – anywhere – anytime.

    Microsoft will counter with a nano-like launch of their own in Q107, but no one will care, because 10 million+ nano sales in the December quarter will have saturated that market. Apple knows this and thus will have repositioned the consumer market towards the upscale iPod video.

    Apple is in full control of dictating this market, and is not fallingdown like Sony with the PS brand. Just brilliant.
