Mini Me

June 4, 2010 - Dave Hecei

The rumors are flying, the week before this years WWDC, of signs that the mini is about to be updated. Both Appleinsider and Mac Rumors have stated that their sources corroborate the tightening supply of Mac minis. This is usually, but not always, an indication of immanent new models being announced.

Normally WWDC is not a place where Apple would announce new consumer Macs. If so, this year's show might be one of the better ones in quite a while. Steve Jobs is set to open the weeklong conference with his usual keynote flare, starting Monday at 10am PDT.

Moscone Center West is at this moment being prepped with banners and other signage. Rumored to be announced at the show - new iPhone model (4G), iPhone OS 4.0, iPad OS 4.0, OS X 10.6.4 updates with a possible look at 10.7 (??), new AppleTV, new Mac mini (with better media center integration), new Mac Pro 12-core tower, Final Cut 10, iLife 10, iWork 10, and one last thing (Steve hasn't said that in a while so he's due).

The iPhone updates and new iPhone OS are a lock, while these other things are, well, rumors. We are definitely due for new iLife and iWork, plus the short supply of minis means that something is in the works.

Something new on the AppleTV hit the net a short time ago. Someone close to Apple got wind of an inexpensive device, sort of like an iPhone without a screen, that you hook up to your HD television. It would stream content and possibly have some Apps and Internet functionality. The rumor is it will be around $100.

We'll just have to be patient, Monday will be here soon enough. NOT.
