MacBook Air, iRentals?
What’s the chatter ahead of Apple Macworld. Find out from one of the internet’s top Apple bloggers.
Tom Krazit writes “One More Thing” for CNET Networks and he joins the panel for this conversation. Following is a synopsis of his main points.
- Apple is expected to unveil ultra-thin laptops, something very sleek and stylish. But don’t expect to walk away with one for under 2-grand. However, it could drive Apple's market share higher in part because they have great margins.
- Apple has likely made deals with several major movie studios for iTunes rentals and Hollywood honchos may share the stage with Steve Jobs for this announcement
- Expect Apple to price iTunes movie rentals at $3.99 each.
- Steve Jobs will probably provide more information on applications for iPhone
Meanwhile, other Apple bloggers are speculating that the "2008 Something In The Air" banner currently hanging at Macworld indicates Apple will be adapting WiMax technology for its new computers. Should Apple throw its weight behind fledgling WiMax, it would be a huge development, and could potentially mean that Hewlett Packard and Dell will have to follow.
