Apple: ‘The first 30 years were just the beginning’

image

Apple has posted an intriguing new welcome message on the home page of Apple.com. The fresh graphic features a backlit Apple logo with the text, “The first 30 years were just the beginning. Welcome to 2007.” While the message could simply be a harmless New Year’s greeting, it will no doubt stir up much anticipation before Apple CEO Steve Jobs’ keynote at next week’s Macworld Expo.

I predict Apple’s market share it gonna take a HUGE jump by the end of 2007.  There’s no doubt they will be introducing some impressive products in the next 12 months.

I do not think it is backlit, I think the Apple logo is creating an “eclipse” which can mean all kinds of things.

To the above:
While a part of me wants to say over-analization, I think you’re right… Should be interesting…

As ever, Apple puts up a nice graphic with no notes or details and everyone jumps on the bandwagon of what it signifies!  It’s just another New Year for goodness sake.  As long as everyone keeps talking about Apple and trying to second guess what is coming, the richer Mr Jobs gets.

And richer…

And richer,...

Why doesn’t he put some of his billions to better use around the world instead of inflicting a new iPod on us every six months.

Don’t get me wrong, I love my iPod, but I’m getting increasingly sick of the “I predict…” business, get over it guys !

Hey Godders, i don’t see Windows rumors live. If there is one, I will stand corrected.

Looking @ MacRumors.com, I think Leopard, iLife, iWork, a upgrade for the nano (Software), iTV andmore could be at the Moscone Centre.

Speculation is harmless but meaningless.  If it was ready, they’d show us it now and therefore nothing’s stuck in the sand.

It’s also interesting to note that iTunes has not been refreshed for today (no new music on this here New Music Tuesday)

Outstanding! 30 Years is just the beginning!

Maybe in the NEXT 30 years, Apple will double its PC market share to 10%

Apple is the DeLorean of the computer world… nice to look at, but under the hood, underpowered and doomed to failure! (again)

Well that graphic clearly tells us exactly what the big new products are going to be!  The ‘backlight’ effect indicates, well, light, which is part of the electromagnetic spectrum, as is radio.  Cell phones work by radio, so I think it’s obvious we’re going to have the new not-named-iPhone, plus of course bluetooth (also radio) iPods which will be able to beam music directly into our heads through the new iBrain Implant. 
I can’t believe they gave away the secret!  Where’s the suspense now?

Hey Rich,

I happen to own a Delorean and love it, the company didn’t go out because of he car, it was all political problems in Ireland.

Rich clearly hasn’t used a mac. If he had, he’d know how it’s not so much about the “power” , but more about how it handles.

Mac, like Deloreans, handle wonderfully.

Plus, they both make great “time machines”.

Ney-sayers and party poopers .... go to Mikey Dell’s or Billy Gates sites and see if you can stay awake with their predicted offerings for 07.  Zune should be spelled: Zzzzzzzzune.  Apple has more progressive thinking, quality engineering, and business savvy in the leaf of it’s logo than the lumbering giants could ever muster.  You’re just jealous ... wink

Yeah, my mac pro that dessimates any PC rival while offering the same OS is a mere Dlorean novelty.  I guess in the aspect that it is new and unprecedented it is comparable, but in any other regard the chips have fallen and it is more versatile and affordable than anything that windows could possibly congere.  By all means enjoy what you have, but now that apple has adopted Intel there is nothing stopping it, besides ignorant CONSUMERS like you.  Gday
