After the buzz about CES 2008, all eyes are on Steve Jobs and his keynote speech on Macworld Conference and Expo, trade show produced by IDG World Expo dedicated to Apple, this coming January 15.
Last year, Apple unveiled the revolutionary and ultra hip iPhone in this same trade show. Thatâ€™s why more than 50,000 people and 400 exhibitors are very excited to know if there are any blockbuster products and services still hidden in its product portfolio. According to a news article:
“What everyone wants from Steve is, ‘What’s next?'” said Creative Strategies’ principal analyst Tim Bajarin. “You don’t have to create a new blockbuster every year. What you have to do is make it better. … They’re looking for Apple to keep the record going.”
Based on previous reports and speculations on various publications and blogs, there are 3 major initiatives expected this year â€“ the launch of iTunes movie rental service, an updated Apple TV set-top box and ultra-mobile laptop named Mac Mini.
Unfortunately, Steve Jobs is infamous for his secretive nature and marketing acumen that itâ€™s really hard to surmise whatâ€™s up his sleeves until the actual presentation.
