I’m betting reviews will hit tomorrow since Thursday is Tech day in the NYT. That also gives Apple 2 solid days of crazy press before the devices actually go on sale on Saturday. Could be midnight tonight + 1 second.
Since we’ll likely have answers to many many unanswered questions shortly, I wanted to get my last licks in!
1) Email search. Can you search within subfolders or only the current folder? I was heartened in the video to see an option to Continue the Search on the Server. But will that search include folders too? Also, can we please get an option to also search the content of messages instead of just To/From/Subject/All?
2) Printing. Is it built in? If so, how: bluetooth? bonjour/wifi? If not….ummm…I guess we make due with apps. That’d be disappointing. That said, I hardly print anymore unless absolutely necessary, so of all sacrifices this is one I can live with, or use the iMac if need be.
3) The file system. What is it and how does it work? We’ve seen the coverflow-style document manager in the videos. But is there any way to manage files beyond that? Folders/subfolders? Coverflow works okay for a relatively small number of files. What about 1000s? Folders and subfolders already exist as a concept in Mail, so why not in the document manager?
4) mobileme/iDisk. How closely will these be integrated with iWork.com?
5) News. Will we get any about…iOS4 preview? mobileme revamp? etc?
I’ll be waiting on a 3G model so I expect all you wifi-only folks to fill me in!
