Even though SteJo fervently dismissed the idea of an Apple netbook last year, it seems that Apple may release a 9 or 10-inch touchscreen netbook in the second half of the year, according to that hilarious comedy website CNNMoney.com. With the possibility of the WWDC happening in June I can’t help but hope and wonder that the big summertime announcement this year could be this device. You’re right, the date is more in sync with the cycle of their iPhone announcements, but since the netbook is a whole new bloody device (I’m not British) then who knows what the product cycle could be? My guess on pricing would be somewhere between $800-$1000, mainly because, as it will be more of a computer, it would have to cost more than an untethered iPhone, right?
Also, it seems like APPL needs something big to drop. Their last several announcements could have been settings on a Sound Spa clock radio next to “Rainforest” and “Waterfall.” A strong announcement could also try to dampen any blow that may be incurred if Jobs doesn’t come back (coincidentally in June). On top of that heaping pile of potentially questionable reasoning you might add Apple’s general device-launching M.O. to the mix: sit back for a while to test the viability of the market and then make a more fuckable netbook.
Aaaaaaaarrrrrrrrgggggggghhhhhh!!!! It’s a vile plot!!! This must be how Art Bell feels all the time!!! 2,1 iPhones…netbooks…SteJo’s health…IT’S TOO MUCH.
