Apple kicked the new year off with a bang with a new teaser on
its Web site home page
that has left many visitors wondering what the company is up to.
“The first 30 years were just the beginning,” reads the header on a graphic showing the upper half of the Apple logo, illuminated with streaming light from behind. “Welcome to 2007.”
The tantalizing teaser has gotten tongues on rumor sites and Web site discussion boards wagging a week before Apple CEO Steve Jobs delivers his annual keynote address to attendees of
Macworld Conference & Expo
in San Francisco, Calif.
The rumor buzz has been in high gear for weeks as industry wags and Apple enthusiasts try to predict Apple’s next move. Some say the company is working on its own cell phone; others suggest Apple is ready to unveil a new iPod thoroughly optimized for video playback. Some say new Macs are on the way. Others predict new software offerings.
It’s fun to speculate about what Apple has up its sleeve, but it’s a game that rarely produces accurate results. And Apple, in typical fashion, isn’t saying a word, preferring instead to use that buzz as momentum for whatever it will announce next week.
Obviously, keep visiting Macworld for details.
