  1. Errr… @ applecart….You want iPhone video chat? Really? With a mirror maybe? Or with iPhone version iChat AV enhancements that let the camera see you while you watch the screen, I guess. Apple can do anything so they will shortly patent a light-bending gizmo. Either that or they’ll ship a mirror with the next iChat upgrade.

  2. 84 Mac Guy is right. When I see crap commercials like LogMeOUT, I make it a point to NEVER buy from a company like that. You want to forcefeed me with junk commercials, then just right me off as a potential customer and suffer the negative word of mouth “advertising” I provide for free!

  3. I honestly don’t think I’ve heard more BS in my life . A lack of a breakthrough product will come from companies tightening their belt, not consumers. Consumers might not be willing to buy , but there can be a breakthrough product none the less , and if it’ll be anyone , it’ll be apple . They have the innovation and the warchest to keep R&D;up even during a recession .

    3d is the new BIG thing huh? Where has this guy been ?

    And no , not everyone is trying to make a tablet computer .Some have tried , all have failed , unless you count the iphone/ipod touch . If it happens it’s companies just jumping on the touch screen bandwagon. And lets face it , we’re not gonna run vista on these , especially due to requirements and we sure as hell can’t use windows mobile .

    If competition wants to come in, it will have to be linux , and linux is the underdog compared to OSX.
