My "On the Record" Prediction for 9/1

Wednesday September 1st 2010 Apple will have a press conference to announce some new products that I of course will try and buy at least some of them. But, since Apple is Apple we don't really know what they are gonna say. All of us fans are scanning the internet, reading all the predictions and hoping to get what we want. So as usual I will go on record with what I am hoping for.

1. An iPod Touch with the updated screen and 2 cameras
a. Why do I think this? Well, in the last press conference Steve announced that face-time would be on other platforms so I assume he meant the Touch.
b. They will probably be higher priced maybe starting at $299 but I hope not.
2. I'm hoping they will announce Garageband for the iPad. Since the invite was a guitar and thats the icon for garageband it fits. :)
3. They may also announce an iPad with facetime cameras but doubtful at this time, maybe later in the year.
4. For some reason I think the nano will also be updated. Somewhere I heard Apple was making a tiny screen. This maybe to make the nano a touch device.
5. I still think there will be a third portable touch screened size device. The iPad is the large and the iPhone/Touch is the small. There should be something in the middle. They may make the new iPod Touch a little bigger or they will have a new device. I'd say half the size of the iPad would be a good idea. The other option for the 3rd size could be the nano I mentioned in #4

Or I could be all wrong as in the past. Either way, Wednesdays announcements will most assuredly cost this family some money.

UPDATE: 8/31
They announced they will be streaming the event live so now I want to add that they are announcing a music streaming service.

Childhood Memories and Junk

Wow do I have a lot of Junk!

I used to live with my Grandmother before I moved in with my husband years ago. All of my stuff is still in my room in her apartment. Since she passed away in April we have had the task of going though her stuff and deciding what to keep, what to toss and what to try and sell. Plus I need to finally grow up and get rid of some of my old toys, magazines and stuffed animals. Not because I want to but because I don't have the room for it all and really don't want to get another storage room for it all. Today I went through my bookcase. I have a ton of romance novel paper backs that I'm gonna bring down to the library next chance I get. The magazines are crazy! I have/had and very odd wide range of likes. On the same shelf I found:
  • Nintendo Powers from the 90's
  • Games Magazines from the 80's
  • National Geographic World Magazines from the 80's
  • Deaf Life from the 90's
  • Silent News form the 90's
  • Realms of Fantasy (I have the 1st one from 94) Its well warn and was read though many times :)

Part of me wonders if I should try to sell them, another wants to find a way to store them and then lastly I just want to chuck everything.

What do you think??

We had a blast that day! The place was huge and it was really hot. I can't wait to go back and see all the places I missed.

Hubby & I chat at Starbucks

Frank & I were sitting at Starbucks on Sunday chatting about what we thought Apple would come out with today and in the future. I used my iPod touch, phillips imic, and italk to record our chat while we ate breakfast. The quality is not as bad as I thought but you do here the music, the coffee maker, us eating and people around us every so often. I think it will be fun to see whos right.

I uploaded the chat using twaud.io, a free service that lets you upload 10mb or less of audio to twitter. You can listen via this -->http://twaud.io/16G <-- link

My First Community Board Meeting

Usually I go to my local civic and property owners meeting but I figured I should branch out and also attend my community board meeting. If you've never been to one, its where your neighbors share things they feel need to change in the community and events going on that may be of interest to you.

These meeting are very important and I plan on attending as often as I can and ask that you do the same.

But I do have 1 complaint.

If you're going to a community board meeting, plan to stay as long as you can. Not just until you have said your piece and then leave. It was very rude and in my eyes shows that you only care about yourself and not the rest of the community. Why should I care about helping you.
