MacWorld 2008 Predictions

MacWorld 2008

MacWorld 2008 is just around the corner, and thousands of people are hoping for some great things from Apple. In this blog post I will talk about what I would like to happen from Apple coming up at the MacWorld 2008 Conference and Expo.Personally, I’d like to see a slimmer 12-inch MacBook, with a 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo CPU, 4GB of RAM, and a hard drive holding up to 250GB. It would also be nice if Apple would come to the show with a new line of cheaper, brighter and better Cinema Displays that would include a built-in iSight camera. The Cinema Displays haven’t been updated in over 2 years, and I think it is time Apple refreshed those products.

A fellow blogger, Wesley Yendrys, wrote a great post today about what he would like to see at MacWorld 2008:

I’m hoping for an iPhone release date in Canada, either at MacWorld, or some other time between Q1 and Q2 of 2008. May is when my parents are going to allow me to have an phone, and so, I want to be able to buy an iPhone straight away, rather than waiting for Apple to release one in 2012, when the iPhone has gone through 10 generations. Although, I don’t think we’ll see an iPhone Canada release date, it’s just wishful thinking.As far as software goes, this would be around the time where iLife and iWork ‘08 would be released, but we got that last August. I do think however, we might see some iTunes updates. Maybe even iTunes 8.

There’s the scoop on what I’d like to see at MacWorld 2008. Please remember that Apple Universe will be recording LIVE during MacWorld at the Zeum from 6:00 to 8:00 PM. Please RSVP at Upcoming.

Apple Universe at MacWorld 2008

2008 will be a very special year for Apple Universe. On January 15th, 2008, I will be recording the 100th episode of the Apple Universe podcast LIVE during MacWorld 2008! I’ll be joined by a panel of guests, including Robert Scoble, Cali Lewis, iJustine, Shooby and several other friends. There will be a microphone in the seats so people can ask questions to the panel. This live event will take place at the Zeum, a short distance away from the MacWorld conference.Event details:

Victor Cajiao on Apple Universe

Today, Victor Cajiao was on Apple Universe (click to view or download the episode). Victor is the host and producer of a podcast called Typical Mac User Podcast, which I regularly listen to. We talked about about MacWorld 2008 predictions and Apple’s future!

Also, Apple Universe is having its very first contest! Here are the rules:

Make a video that tells me why you need and/or want iShowU, the best video capturing software for Mac OS. The video must be less than five (5) minutes in length. If you can, upload that video to YouTube, and send me an email with a link to the video. If you can’t upload it to YouTube, email the entire video file to appleuniversepodcast@gmail.com.

The contest will run until Apple Universe episode number 95 is released, giving everyone plenty of time to make their videos. May the most techy man win!

Apple Universe Contest [Update]

As you all know, I said 2 blog posts ago that there is a Apple Universe contest coming up! Well, today during the recording, I talked about the contest. Now I am going to blog about it.

shinywhitebox, the maker of iShowU, is a sponsor of Apple Universe. Neil from shinywhitebox has agreed to give me 2 serial numbers to iShowU. So now it is contest time.

Here is what you have to do:

Make a less then 5 minute video telling me, Daniel, why you need and/or want iShowU, the best video capturing software! If you can, upload that video to YouTube, and if you can’t, either way, email me at appleuniversepodcast@gmail.com with the link to the YouTube video or the video as an attachment. I will watch every video that I get.

I wish everyone the best of luck, and let the best video win!
