Mac OS X "It's no longer possible to write a single app that takes advantage of the full range of Mac OS X features. Some APIs only work inside the Mac App Store. Others only work outside it. Presumably, this gap will widen as more new features are App Store-exclusive, while sandboxing places greater restrictions on what App Store apps are allowed to do." Anybody surprised by this, here's the clue stick. Please proceed to hit yourself with it.

Coming soon, a new revolutionary device from Apple. Nothing before has ever quite encapsulated the user experience like this. Nothing has let us interact with your money-- I mean... you with your content... quite this way before. The new iDesk. We looked a the iPhone, and thought "What if we made it bigger? We gave you the iPad, you could hold the internet in your hands. We looked at the iPad again, and thought "Can we do it again?" With the iDesk's new 26 inch screen, you can hold the internet in your hands, on your desk!

iWayrobbery, automatically skims 30% off your bank balance every month so everyone gets to feel like a developer or musician.

Maybe Apple can revive the iSmell device. Yes, that's a real product and that is what they called it. Ah, the good old days of the dotcom boom.

I thought it was pretty clear at this point that, yes, they do have plans to do what you just described. It will not be an iDesk, but an iTV.
