The Apple web site has a new teaser on the home page; “The first 30 years were just the beginning. Welcome to 2007″. What’s going to be announced next week is still a secret, but the iTV device
previewed at WWDC is a good bet. There is Apple phone speculation all over the internet and in the financial trades.

In any case, we’ll all know what’s up in just a couple of days. Sadly, for the first time in a long time, I’m not going to be able to get to San Francisco. If you’re there and would be willing to be interviewed about your impression of the show, please drop me an email. (macguys[insert at symbol]macguys[insert period]com) Let me know your phone number and a good time to call.

Staying home in North Florida isn’t all bad. The weather is warm and a bit moist. There’s lots of speculation in the media, old and new, about what’s coming on Tuesday when Steve Jobs steps up and opens his bag.

I talk a bit about MacGuys web sites, old and new, the Hess Memorial Macworld Events List, my expo hints and tips list and our list of San Francisco and Expo events this week.

Do you believe the rumors on the net? I expect that we’ll see more on iTV, Leopard, and maybe some new displays. I’d like to see Apple announce that they have come up with a good solution for eco-friendly packaging.

I’d also love to see Apple announce a way cool replacement for the 12″ Powerbook G4.

We got a refurbished iPod Photo at our house this holiday season. It had a problem and we had a successful but confusing AppleCare experience. Apple is advertising for an individual to manage their iPod service. I hope they find someone good.

If you’re in San Francisco this week, consider going to the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s 16th birthday party on Thursday. These folks are heros of mine. If they’re hero’s of yours, stop by and tell them thanks.

Thanks for listening, reading and participating in the web commerce on this site.

Dave.
