WWDC may bring new iPods; iBooks, eMacs unlikely

updated 11:50 am EDT, Fri June 3, 2005

WWDC iPods, iBooks

Banc of America Securities to introduce rumored 2-gigabyte and 4-gigabyte flash iPods. The event may also showcase the long-awaited iTunes-enabled cell phone from Motorola. "We do not see a video-enabled iPod at this event," Banc of America said. "Video content continues to be a challenge for Apple/iPod." The research firm said new flash products won't be enough to materially impact the stock. "While the iBook and eMac are due for a refresh, we don't think it will come at this event," Banc of America said. However, if new iBooks or eMacs debuted, the firm said they would have an impact on Apple's stock. "Comments on using x86 processors to materially lower systems cost" would also help boost Apple's stock, Banc of America said.

    powerbook G5

    I'm pretty sure Apple will launch the all new powerbook G5. Top of the range: An inflatable 30 inch one, dual core G5 of course. Stock will rise to 100 $ per share. No kidding.

    Oh come on Ikon. You're joking-right? Is it possible?

    Nope

    Actually, when Apple releases new stuff or posts a profit their stock tanks.

    It's the nature of the beast that is Apple.

    Pudz?

    Right... use a conference on writing X applications to announce new Pods.

    Seriously, I just wonder how much longer the Powermac line will last... from a smart business standpoint, it's far better for them to drop it entirely. Obviously a big bummer.

    Analysts

    Well, here we are again. The eMac was just updated, yet this analyst, who's (generalize) comments effect stock prices for a company, can't get Apple's product line right. They probably meant the mini Mac. What a job these folks have.

    "Video content continues to be a challenge for Apple/iPod."

    Challenge or just stubborn?

    re: Pudz

    Yeah, I mean, who wants an expandable, powerful system anyway? And they sell only--what, a hundred thousand or two of them? Why would they want to sell such a popular, high margin machine anyway?

    (Yes, I was being sarcastic)
