Yes, you heard it here first. Steve Jobs, in front of thousands of awestruck keynote attendees, allowed Kat Von D of TLC reality show "LA Ink" to give him a large, shiny-silver Apple tattoo across his chest. Reporters pressed the stage for comment, but they could only get a few words out of him before the anesthesia took hold, which was preparation for the implantation of fully-functioning eagle wings scaled to accomodate the human frame.  This will allow him to fly around the San Francisco bay area without the assistance of helicopters or private jets.

Okay, things didn't unfold exactly that way this morning at MacWorld...or for that matter, at all. My version isn't that far off, however, from all the breathless hypothesizing burbling across the blogosphere since at least last Wednesday. Jobs will announce a new super-lightweight laptop. Apple will start its own music label. Apple will release the "iPod monkey" which, when loaded with songs, will sing them back to you in a screechy monkey voice.

Don't get me wrong...last year's MacWorld was absolutely spectacular, as that was where Jobs announced the iPhone...which I still think is an amazing piece of phone engineering. I'm sure they will do something more in the TV space, because that only makes sense given their relationship with content companies and the fact that so many use the iTunes software as the base station to their media lives. The odds of matching the surprise of the iPhone, however, is low...well, unless they ARE really planning to release the iPod Monkey. I would DEFINITELY buy that.

It can't be denied, though, that I am curious as to what they will announce, which is why I bothered reading all those speculation blogs in the first place. Apple is a company firing on all cylinders, no doubt about it. That wasn't always the state of things, but it clearly is now. That's something even this Microsoft employee can appreciate
