You cannot possibly understand how much I’m dying inside, how desperately anxious I am for Steve Jobs’ keynote address at MacWorld tomorrow. I’ve always enjoyed the sense of anticipation for these, but this time it’s almost more than I can bear. Why? I don’t really know.
Part of it is that I can afford to — and expect to — purchase whatever gadgets he happens to announce. But mostly I think it’s because I’ve just become aware how handy it would be to have a truly Mac-oriented phone/information manager. And wouldn’t you know it? That’s what he’s expected to unveil. I have my fingers crossed that:
- He will indeed announce such a device;
- The device will actually do much, much more (approaching a mini-computer); and
- The device won’t be exorbitantly expensive (relatively speaking).
Of course, I won’t actually be able to pay attention to Jobs’ speech. I have an appointment with a customer, and then have to make the company Costco trip. This just makes things all the more painful!
