I'm talking on the lines of a new product or something. I kinda would like to see them make some AirPlay speakers. Some sort of game console that ties into the iPad would be cool too. The control would be your iPad or iPod touch. Maybe even the Apple TV 3 with apps and game play through AirPlay. What you think?

It's tough to say. I've grown tried of Apple's new direction for products.

I think a lot of people are disappointed with FCX. As for me, I would like to see Apple come out with a mid-size tower in the $1200-$1500 price range. A line of messenger bags for toting around MacBook Pros and Airs would be nice too. Most of the MacBook bags out there now are overpriced pieces of sloppy junk.

They are very nice. I sell them.


As far as things I'd like to see Apple make:
-12 volt auto adapter for MacBook Air/Pro
-Case for iPhone 4
-Bluetooth headset (Apple used to make one)
-Bluetooth visor mount for iPhone handsfree in car.
-Decent case for iPad (not the smart cover)
-Wireless keyboard with numeric keypad
-mini tower with 3.5" hard drives
-An Apple printer/scanner would be nice to see. Something that works with iOS devices and computers.
-I'd also like to see Apple add Safari to Apple TV. That, along with the ability to add a keyboard and mouse. iOS 5 may change my mind if the iPads etc work well as a controller.
-I'd also like to see a contact manger built into the next version of iLife. Bento and address book and iCal work okay together, but they were never designed from the ground up to be a contact manager.
-Apple alarm clock/dock for iphone/iPod touch. Something that allows the wished for iPhone case to dock without having to remove a portion of the case.

Before they make anything new I just wish they would fix our freezing iMac problems which have now been around since Mac OS X 10.6.3 and is still present in 10.7.1 Its ridiculas Evil or Very Mad

I just don't see them doing that. Everything that they sell between the $799.00 Mini up to the $2499.00 Mac Pro is an all-in-one. Either in the form of a notebook or an iMac. They have been committed to this product map for many years, now. Not that I have Apple's ear, but; when you stick with an idea this long, there has to be a reason. I've been kicking around an idea for a while of maxing out a Mini, 24" display, Bluetooth keyboard, and Apple trackpad. Either that or a 15" MacBook Pro. My original 2006 Mini is long in the tooth but, still works just as well as the day I bought it. My MacBook is now 3 years old. I will say this, I would never buy another polycarbonate MacBook. I use the MacBook like a desktop, never abused, and rarely moved. I am on my second deck on it and it is cracked as well. (Has been a known issue to Apple). Great computer, just hasn't been durable.

A touch screen iMac or Apple TV with apps. A lot of people also bump around the idea of Apple making a TV set, but I'm not sold on that one quite yet.
