Our predictions for Macworld Expo and 2007, our resolutions, and one last (we hope) rumor round-up on the iPhone...

Topics:

What won't get announced.

 

  • WriteNow. Word Perfect 5.1. (jf: Do you mean Word 5.1 from Microsoft. I wrote 8 software manuals with that version.) It was nearly perfect. Word Star. Scrivenerand WriteRoom get brought up again.
  • Email is a bad idea. Phones are even worse. Carrier pigeons and swallows get eaten by hawks. Smoke signaling causes global warming.

Picks

  • Scott is not left handed so he's compatible with a Logitech Cordless Revolutionmouse. Comes with a kabillion buttons. All programmable.
  • Alex hates the web and is using Tubular to convert YouTube video to his iPod.
  • Leo is posting resized images to his web server using ImageWell.
  • Merlin is firing his time machine up so he can give TaskList to his past student self.
  • Cornell Note taking on wiki.43folders.com. Here's a generator.

Join us next week for our live broadcast at the 21st-Amendment brew pub. (This is a change from what we announced - we're no longer at the Apple Store.)

The Hess Memorial Macworld Party list.

Thanks to John Foster for the show notes!
