The next thing Apple should release: A much-updated Mac Mini designed specifically for the living room. More than just a PVR, it's a full-featured macintosh you can use while lounging around on your couch. Features include:

- Same small footprint as current Mac Mini.
- HDMI video out as well as DVI/VGA.
- Digital audio out.
- PVR/Apple TV software built-in.
- Wireless I/O device (combination keayboard & pointing device/mouse) that borrows heavily from the Nintendo Wii OR native support for the Wiimote.
- Huge freakin' hard drive.
- Enough RAM to run WoW at a decent framerate on a 50" television.
- Wireless USB hub so you can plug devices in at the couch. (Better yet, embed the hub INTO the couch).
- Updated preferences in OSX so the user has way more control over font sizes in menus, popups, dialog boxes, etc, etc...

What did I miss? Not much really...

I can't say I'm disappointed about Apple introducing nothing but iPod stuff, that's what this event was all about. Everything that was dropped is just about all I would expect from Apple at this point. I wanted to see a 64GB Touch, but that wouldn't have fit Apple's current M.O. Genius may be great for most mainstream users, but it hasn't impressed me yet. After a couple of days, it has introduced me to exactly ONE song that I like that I hadn't heard of...

Mostly, I'm confused. Both the Classic and Nano seem to have taken steps backwards. The Classic's capacity confuses me, why would they do this? Wouldn't it have been easier to leave the the Classic at 160GB? OK, ditch the little one, but why step backwards in capacity? The Nano styling seems to have stepped back to being the next evolution from the 2ND gen Nano, kind of ignoring that the 3rd gen version had ever existed. Not that this is a bad thing, I think they look great. The silver Nano with the black scroll wheel looks great, I think all the colors should come with the black scroll wheel. At least they gave us 16GB this time.

I agree. Be happy with what was released. The features and Apple-branded dream gadgets that we all pine for are more than likely in the works. (or at least are being considered) Everything will be revealed in due time. Our speculations, expectations and anticipations are what make these Keynotes exciting!

So Apple updates the entire iPod line, releases iTunes 8.0, announces HD TV shows (along with the return on NBC), announces a 2.1 software update for the iPod Touch and iPhone and still people are not satisfied.

There is no way possible for Apple to release everything everyone wants at once. There is always room for improvement and growth. That's life. Why focus on what's not there? Were Apple users slighted somehow? It seems to me we just got a plethora of goodies to drool over and play with.
