No iPhone Nano

Some sites still insist that there will be an iPhone Nano at Macworld Expo. I guarantee that there will NOT be an iPhone nano.

Just think about it. Look at your iPhone and bring up the keyboard. Do you really want a smaller screen? Will most people with average sized hands be able to comfortably use a smaller keyboard than the current iPhone keyboard?

The limited screen space would force developers to redesign their applications to fit on a smaller screen and make it necessary to maintain separate versions for regular iPhone or iPod Touch and iPhone Nano.

Back to reality

The last few days I’ve been catching up with work and recovering from Macworld. This is the first Macworld where I didn’t come home with a cold, since I prepared by taking TriMune for the week leading up to it and I’ve continued to take it every day. I do have the post-Macworld blahs, though.

I miss hanging out with all of the industry people. Florida seems like another world, where nobody talks about the MacBook Air, and the rest of Apple’s announcements barely made a ripple.

Ancient meets Modern

There was a group of musicians at the corner of Geary & Powell. One guy had a MacBook Pro and was playing an Australian aboriginal instrument called a Didgeridoo.

Top ten things in the air

Apple watchers are trying to guess the meaning of “There’s something in the air” on Apple’s tantalizing Macworld banners. Here are some possibilities.

  1. Apple is buying Adobe and adding AIR to the iPhone and building it into OS X
  2. Wireless syncing of iPod & iPhone with Macs
  3. Rent movies wirelessly directly from the Apple TV
  4. Bluetooth headphones for iPod & iPhone
  5. Subnotebook will have built-in 3G or EVDO
  6. All laptops will have built-in cellular modem
  7. Wireless tablet Mac
  8. Wireless charging for iPhone & iPod
  9. Mobile TV on the iPhone
  10. Beam Technology to transfer data, faster than bluetooth

A little bird just tweeted that the macbook nano is coming.

Something's in the air

ars technica posted this shot of the first banner for Macworld. I wonder what it could be… wireless movie rentals directly from the AppleTV?
