Yes, very much Mobile Me with knobs on. Mobile Me doesn't appear to have gained mainstream adoption but with a much hyped new gizmo and the emphasis on your media being stored remotely, Apple are quids in and everyone thinks that they have invented something new [edit after reading Dave's post] provided it works [/edit].

As I said in my previous post this is just unfounded speculation on what could be introduced to the world tomorrow.

Hardly unfounded, the internet is full of rumours about tomorrow, several of which you have repeated.

Speculation based on rumours is unfounded speculation, especially when it comes from someone technologically illiterate as myself.

My main speculation is on the new gadget having a focus on being cloud based, I haven't seen any rumours along those lines, although there are so many other rumours out there I wouldn't claim that I was the only person to have had this idea.

Not sure I'd call Apple Tv a failure. Not a big seller but it gives them a presence in a crowded sector. Mobile Me? Agreed, a bit like Mac.com. The Mouse? dunno, vive le trackpad. Firewire is a loss but I thought the same when they dropped disk drives.

They have yet to produce a 'Zune' or a Vista.

In terms of serious product releases Apple TV, yes. The other three don't really count do they.

They've always been that way its just become more desirable, as its moved from a niche its become dirty. They are the BMW of the computer industry, there's nothing great in the package they offer they just do it well and have a good brand.

It was obvious they were going to close up shop on Google when they had a Google director on their board. It was only a matter of time, the game changed for them as soon as Google announced Android, it signalled Googles intent.

Google will eventually fall too and they'll be a new upstart come through to take its place, its life.

We need the Apples and Googles of this world, are Apple ever really bought by businesses (other than creatives)? Its not their target market, they want the desirable niche, and they pretty much hit that spot well.

As for the Tablet, I'm looking forward to see what it does tomorrow, might get one for a while to play with but I suspect it will offer little new it will just deliver it very well which is pretty much what Apple do.

The AppleTV was never marketed as a serious device. Stevo and Big Phil have always referred to it as a 'hobby'.

Anyways, I like my aTV; it does what it says on the tin.

I have no idea what is in it in terms of software- I only know that Steve's been talking it up and I'm looking forward to something very special.

If it's just a big ipod touch for e-books I'll be very upset. I can't see that happening though.
