MWSF 2008 keynote bingo

I can’t be too late to say that I was so wrong.

Ah, winter in San Francisco: the time of year when a young man’s fancy lightly turns to keynote bingo. What’s that, you ask? You haven’t played? Oh, but you must. Peruse last year’s edition to learn the rules and internalize the philosophy.

So, what kind of squares can we expect in this post-Leopard world? iPhone software updates? Booooring. Might as well add a square for Mac OS X 10.5.2 while we’re at it. But since this is Macworld, let’s trot out some of the few remaining Mac-related hardware fantasies.

The xMac is taking the year off, but in its place we’ve got two other longtime fantasies to fill squares: a subnotebook and a tablet. And yeah, I guess we can throw in a few squares for the phone weenies.

I’m taking a bit of a risk posting the card this early. I usually wait until the last minute so I can include as many late-breaking leaks as possible. If some new development comes across the tubes in the next few days and makes this card quaintly irrelevant, well, then I guess I’ll have learned my lesson for next year.

The official card is in its traditional PDF format:
