    As someone looking forward to buying my very first Mac desktop; I must say this is a pretty lame rumour. 'Sandy Bridge'? 'Thunderbolt'? Nothing surprising; everyone here was expecting these two items. I want more specific rumours!:p

    The wait continues...:(

    Don't forget the possibility of better graphics and SSD as standard, now thats gotta be worth a grin :)

    People don't understand what freedoms truly are. It doesn't mean you get to say and do whatever you want wherever you want - that's anarchy, and anarchy is bad... unless you're the biggest, strongest and most brutal. Freedom of speech really means you can't be jailed or otherwise punished by the government for saying what you want in a pulic arena.

    Thank you! I was going to say the same thing... In general, people are clueless and often whine about censorship and how free speech is a thing of the past. What most don't realize is that we have more freedom of speech now then ever before. The key is free speech laws (as you stated) apply within a public domain - always have. What many (even most) fail to grasp is what is truly public grounds. As bitfactory noted "... and who thought shopping malls were public places? WTH? Honestly.", that is so true. I think many people fail to grasp that just because the general public is allowed inside an area does not make it a "public place".

    Nice! I can't wait, i've survived without having to buy the unibody design which I loath so much. The edges are too sharp, the keyboard was better on the old one, in efforts to keep it cool the laptop had to be underclocked. Also, for me as a traveler I often do allot of work on the road and I don't mind carrying extra battery, but with this design its impossible for me to swap out.

    Not to mention the unipad trackpad just isnt for me, in programs like photoshop you end up doing things on accident. But that's prolly going to stay so im going to be out of luck

    After looking at a chart of all the Core 2 Duo's, it seems like the most reasonable implementation would be to but the 2MB L2 cache Allendale cores into the iMacs (1.86ghz for the 17" and 2.16ghz for the 20") and the 4MB L2cache Conroe cores into the 3 Mac Pros (2.33ghz @ $1999, 2.66ghz @ $2499, and 2.93ghz @ $2999), with possibly and ultra-high end Dual 3.0ghz Woodcrest offering @ $3499 (I don't think economy of scale effects that likleyhood as Apple will already be purchasing them for their entire X-Serve line).

    That's probably how I would roll it out if it were up to me.

    If it were up to me, I would make the product line look like this before November (I doubt Apple would make a Mini-Tower, but think it would be great):

    Mac Mini (Combo) - $549/£399
    Core 2 Duo T5500 (Merom) -> 1.66GHz, 2MB, 667MHz FSB
    GMA X3000

    Mac Mini (SuperDrive) - $749/£499
    Core 2 Duo T5600 (Merom) -> 1.83GHz, 2MB, 667MHz FSB
    GMA X3000

    Mac Plus (Mini-Tower) - $1,049/£699 + iMac 17" - $1,299/£849
    Core 2 Duo E6400 (Conroe/Allendale) -> 2.13GHz, 2MB, 1066MHz FSB
    Radeon X1600 Pro (128MB)

    Mac Plus (Mini-Tower) - $1,299/£849 + iMac 20" - $1,699/£1,099
    Core 2 Duo E6600 (Conroe) -> 2.4GHz, 4MB, 1066MHz FSB
    Radeon X1600 XT (256MB)

    Mac Pro - $2,699/£1,999
    Dual Xeon 5150s (Woodcrest) -> 2.66GHz, 4MB, 1333MHz FSB
    Radeon X1900 GT (256MB)

    Mac Pro - $3,699/£2,699
    Dual Xeon 5160s (Woodcrest) -> 3GHz, 4MB, 1333MHz FSB
    Radeon X1900 XT (512MB)

    The funny part is, no matter what Apple does to make this work, whether its really usable, or totally locked-in-worthless, it doesn't matter.

    Streaming will never be as good as audio stored on your device. Not. Ever.

    Not on 3G, not on 4G, and not even over WiFi. The software and streaming protocols are way too slow to offer even comparable performance.

    I'll stick with syncing/file storage.

    With you so far, but I don't think Core 2 Duo is realy all that much of a big deal for Apple in the grand scheme of things. It's a small speed bump, with 64 bit as a bonus extra.

    Well, for the Merom, you get about 20% performance for the same clock speed as well as slightly improved power usage. With the Conroe, the change is much more noticable, providing 40% more performance, while using 40% less power than the Pentium D.

    The Core 2 Duo models also sport these cheesy Intel-named features. (Translation in parenthesis)
    - Intel® Wide Dynamic Execution (Widens the execution core by 33% and adds Macro-fusion to combine x86 instructions)
    - Intel® Intelligent Power Capability (better SpeedStep technology)
    - Intel® Advanced Smart Cache (refined, faster cache design)
    - Intel® Smart Memory Access (lower latency memory access)
    - Intel® Advanced Digital Media Boost (do SSE instructions in one cycle)

    The Core 2 is basically a refinement of everything in Yonah. For Merom, it's a modest increase, but for the Conroe, there will be a bigger difference.

    I don't believe any of this. The intel MacBook Pros just came out,

    Announced in January, released in February, speed bumped in May. I'm in the market for a MBP, so I hope they update it soon.

    Why screw aroud with a proven design, when there's absolutely no need.

    I'm thinking they'll make minor changes, like make the top bezel thinner, as it's a little wider right now for the camera, and change the case slightly if necessary to accomodate a dual-layer burner. And please, give back the FW800 and add another USB port!

    As far as features go, It'd be neat to offer 802.11N (probably not because the spec isn't final yet, though I don't think G was final when they made Airport Extreme) and maybe a bumped GPU also.

    The same goes for the iMac, it's a great design. They had a chance to rev the designs when they moved to intel and chose not to.

    I think what Apple has been doing by keeping most of their models with virtually the same look with the switch to Intel is to create a sense of continuity with the PPC Macs.

    They might change the case to be more accessable (I think that was lost somewhere in the G5 era) and to loose some of the blank white space below the screen (It doesn't bother me, but I've heard people say it does a bit).

    Just minor refinements because, yes I agree, it is a great design. It kinda reminds me of a futuristic original Macintosh.

    Oh, and maybe they'll have it in black.

    As for movie download, it's possible but I think it would be a premature move. Further expansion of their TV show range is much more likely as it fits the casual listening/watching pattern of iPod owners.

    Well, when Apple does it (I do say when because there is a ton of evidence pointing that way), they will change the iPod to make it more feasable for people to watch full-length movies on it...with a widescreen touch display, and maybe crank up the output resolution so it's decent for watching on TV. Then throw in Bluetooth for remote control and wireless audio streaming.

    Hah... this is so funny.

    Apple sends out invites that seem to indicate a moviestore, rumors abound about new nanos... and what do the forums turn into:

    "I hope they release a phone."

    "New macbooks please!"

    "Apple DVR!"

    :confused: :o

    Where do they come up with this stuff?

    time to do research?

    if you are not doing anything wrong, what is there to worry about?

    I totally agree. We should just let any corporation or government track anything we do. If they want to turn our phones into constant listening devices, why would anyone oppose that, other than those who are doing wrong....

    Sheeple.

    At an event in New York on Tuesday, Nokia announced the new Nokia N75, a flip phone that syncs with Windows Media Player, plays MPEG-4 videos in full screen mode, and connects to Cingular's high-speed network. Targeted straight at the North American market, it's a shoo-in to be a high end media phone on Cingular for Christmas.

    Quoted from an older thread that has been left behind:

    iLounge have an invitation: Definitely new iPods of some form
    "Centre for the Arts Theatre": Most likely some sort of movie content
    iLounge have an invitation: Consumer event, new iMacs most likely.

    I get the feeling the purported MacBook Pro updates are going to happen externally to this event, most probably when Apple can get enough into the distribution pipeline to begin immediate shipping.

    So, I'm going to make a bold prediction here and say that it will be similar to last year's "One More Thing..." event but with a focus on "Bigger."

    Act One: Last year was the iMac with built-in iSight and Front Row/Photo Booth software. This year it all gets bigger with new Core 2 Duo iMacs now in 17", 20" and 23" models. All models get HDMI-in ports and Front Row gains a "TV" option. No PVR functionality, no worrying about differing TV formats and delivery systems, if you have a box with HDMI-out you can watch TV on your iMac too.

    Act Two: Last year it was the sales of iPod, iTunes Music Store and iPod accessories. This year, with the focus on "bigger" Apple announce the availability of feature-length movies on iTunes. iTunes 7 makes use of new Bit-Torrent style downloads from servers all over the world to ensure rapid download speeds, H.264 encoding allows for the smallest possible file size. $9.99 for DVD quality, $14.99 for HD.

    Act Three: Last year was the new 5th generation iPod. This year we go "bigger" with the new 6th generation iPod sporting a 4.5" full-colour LCD screen at a resolution of 720x480. Incredible screen, more detail than ever before and you are able to download your iTunes-purchased movies onto it and watch them in bright, sharp, full colour. Available in 40GB and 80GB models and sporting a revolutionary new touch-control interface with hints of Apple's Front Row software the new iPod is shipping today.

    Rip me apart if you will, I don't think Apple should make an iPhone. The global mobile phone system is too complex. The US are only just getting 3G whilst we're all looking down the road at 4G but that is Apple's biggest market. Maybe a US-only iPhone will appear but as it stands, other more-established phone makers have the market sorted globally.

    MacBook Pro to be updated when Core 2 Duo production hits peak. Late September.

    Comments?

    Somebody cast doubt on the HDMI thing, I don't know - just seemed like the easiest option to get video into an iMac. You don't have to worry about all the different methods of getting TV (free to air, digital, cable) because if you have a HDMI-enabled receiver it would just plug into the back of the iMac. You'd need to use the receiver's remote to do all the channel changing but Apple could offer some sort of recording program. EyeHome could do something with it too? I'm no expert, just trying to look at a simple solution for a complicated, fragmented problem.

    Apple can design better than that. It will probably not look like that. Why? Because they do not want it to look exactly as the Nano as it would confuse people. That design does not make sense to me.

    I think and hope they will make a new Newton, more a Apple PDA than a iPod with phone capabilities.

    It is time for Apple to release a phone, but not just an iPod Phone. Look at the patent Apple made some days ago, it looks more like a PDA/Smartphone than phone which is great.

    The Nanos are the best selling mp3 player. They're beautiful and loved by all. Nobody is going to not buy a cell phone because it ''looks too much like a nano'', that will be the reason they DO buy the cell phone.

    As damienvfx suggestes there are plenty of commercials beyond trailers when you go out to the movies these days, which can easily be a $50+ affair, so why expect to be ad-free...

    There have also been some ads (albeit more like trailers) tacked on th the end of some shows I have bought on iTMS.

    But as I said, for HOME viewing, is there a precedent for ads?

    What ads have you seen on iTunes shows? Were they for other shows, or for other products?

    Well, if Steve wants to shun Europe, ok. However, these yes, no, maybe games are utterly unbecoming of a company like Apple. Not untypical but out of place. The main representatives not being able to say when and where they'll show isn't very reassuring.

    Well, I'll be on vacation for a week soon, so when I'm be back, we'll know more, perhaps.

    What's the idea of DUI checkpoints anyway? Can't police officers just pull over drivers they suspect of DUI if they catch them while on regular patrol? That's how it works here at least. Much less predictable and it negates the utility of the apps in question..

    And the patrols just happen to be in the streets you'd use to get around the checkpoint.

    App's like this could have a good effect as well.
    Someone who not sure but knows they are close might check and know the chance of getting caught is high so they get a cab.

    I had to have a good laugh following the greenpeace links from the macrumors article.

    * the "making waves" site had a pic and an article stating "our volunteers outside weere handing out real organic green apples". Only thing is the apples in the picture are red!

    *what are greenpeace more upset about...? the fact that there are tonnes of electronic waste in a garbage dump? or the fact that there are hundreds of poor and underpriviledged kids running around the dump collecting the waste in order to survive? I am sure that by fixing Apple's problems they will remove these kids from the dump! What is supposed to be in a garbage dump....the waste or the scavaging kids?
