Everyone on the planet is holding their breath, waiting for Apple to introduce a product that will remake a market, redefine technology, and revolutionize life as we know it in this quadrant of the galaxy. Well, maybe not everyone, but almost everyone. Okay, maybe not almost everyone, but at the very least, everyone who gets paid to write about technology, and has less imagination than an equivalent mass of pound cake is spellbound – waiting for the moment that Apple announces their next magical doohickey.
Of course, their anticipation is based on “people familiar with the company” and “unnamed sources,” or possibly supply chain analysts. In other words, they know nothing. But, in the world of technology punditry if nothing is happening you have to make stuff up. So, without further ado….
Apple’s Coming Attractions…
iWatch. The iWatch will be your cyberID in a wearable form factor. Y0u’ll just approach any compatible station and it will show you what you want, based on the information you have securely saved to the cloud. It will also let you work with any files you’ve saved to the cloud. In short, every Mac will be your Mac because your secure login and all your preferences will be on your wrist.
iTV. Not a smart TV like that Samsung crap. The iTV will actually learn your preferences. It will not be voice controlled. Voice control in a room with more than two people in it is absurd – possibly dangerous. One thing, though. The iTV channel selection will not involve numbers. As more and more content providers provide more and more iTV apps, eventually a breaking point will be achieved. At that point Apple TV will do to television what the iTunes store did to music stores. Also, your iWatch will ensure that whatever iTV you’re near will at least be able to use your preferences.
The above ecosystem enhancements will also ensure that your Apple paraphernalia always has a secure wifi connection when you’re in the vicinity of an iTV or Mac.
Also, because you’ll be geolocated at all times, you’ll be able to get pizza delivered using your Apple account and a gesture, anywhere in the world. The system knows you want extra cheese.
