Apple ‘something in the air’ banners spotted

image

Work crews have begun preparing the Moscone Center for next week’s Macworld Conference and Expo, and as is traditionally the case, pictures of the banners hung inside the complex have made their way online. A number of the banners read, “2008. There’s something in the air.” This text is printed on a black background, and in a lighter font weight than Apple traditionally uses for its marketing materials, adding an “airy” quality to the signage. Although no product image or name appears on the banners, the phrase does suggest that Apple will make wireless technology a major theme of the show, and will introduce new wireless products and/or software next week.

Maybe it’s a hint that they fixed the Cirrus chipset problem (Cirrus is a form of cloud…. which is in the air)..... maybe they got Trident to make WiFi and/or the new video chipset.  Any other cheap PC OEM manufacturer out there that wants to make a go for the 7G?

They’ve fianlly made enough money to buy the atmosphere. From Q2 of 2008 you will only be able to breathe by downloading air from iTunes store. Bill Gates has donated £5bn to provide free air to starving kiddies in Africa for the next 10 years though.
