While I'd like to see a social component added to iTunes and the iPod (read: real WiFi sharing) and a closer partnership with Google for GDrive and Google Docs and Spreadsheets for dot-Mac (think secured documents) and a 30-50GB iDisk, but not a nuclear war, we came up what we'd really like to see Apple announce:

  • A 15-inch MacBook
  • A "diskless" portable with some sort of flash drive

  • A Mac mini "Pro" with a large 3.5-inch HDD
  • A truce with Greenpeace and all Macs being "green"
  • Larger, color correct pro monitors
  • Pro app developments: Shake, Final Cut Pro, Aperture 
  • An octo-core Mac Pro
  • An end to the Blu-Ray/HD DVD battle with a solution
Just thought I'd throw those out there...
