Regrets not buying AAPL stock since Jan. ’07 (85.05)

Is the Apple rotting?

So aside from Leopard last week, what’s in Apple’s stable to keep this 2007 season momentum going? I mean, not to say that it hasn’t been a stellar year so far (check Q4 financial reports). And Christmas seems to look like your average winner with four iPods, a cheaper iPhone, a new OS (which a recent 9to5Mac poll shows 40% “waiting” to buy), and redesigned iMacs. But will we see something truly unique between now and Macworld in January ’08 for your Christmas buck? Here’s what the intertubes are saying:

  • New Macbook rumors arise again, this time with semi-solid speculation fueled from code within Leopard.
  • Mac Pro revision with the Penryn Intel chipset said set for late November.
  • An early release of iPhone 2.0, or even an early November SDK release (for developers to be ready @ Macworld ’08).
  • AppleTV 2.0. / Mac Nano devices. (Or our favorite, actual updates for the current one).
  • The infamous, ultra mini portable nano invisible Macbook Pro line.
  • Ease of OS X install/hack on PC’s equating to Apple software being prepped and sold for PC’s (i.e. OS X Leopard and iLife ’08).

Just some of the choice items of course… Have we missed any bigger ones? Let us know, we won’t tell anyone… promise…

  2. You’ve hit the nail on the head here. Apple has exhausted it’s iPod releases for the time being, let the cat out of the bag (Leopard), pimped out all their computer hardware and let their golden goose, the Apple iPhone fall by the wayside.

    There has to be SOMETHING up Steve’s sleeves for the 4th quarter. Can’t wait to see what it will be.
