* Macworld is coming...

Macworld is coming, and are stoked.

Among the products Apple CEO Steve Jobs is expected to introduce at the Macworld Expo in San Francisco this week are a flash memory-based iPod, an office productivity software package called iWork and a low-end iMac in the $500 price range.

Historically, Macworld has been Apple's prime venue for presenting new products. It was at Macworld Expo in 2002, for example, that Apple debuted the original flat-panel iMac. More recently, the company has tended to spread out its product launches, in part to keep the shelves of its retail stores fresh. This year may represent something of a return to the old style.

Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster said the hype for this year's Macworld is particularly strong, coming not only from Mac fans but from Wall Street and the mainstream media. "It's through the roof," he said.


Rumors always swirl before Macworld, but this year, legal maneuverings by Apple give the hearsay more bite. The company has sued several unnamed people for leaking information and has also taken legal action against one of the sites itself.

In the latter lawsuit, Apple specifically calls out Think Secret's articles on iWork and the sub-$500 G4-based iMac, as well as updates to iLife and a new music device code-named Asteroid that would allow musicians to plug their analog instruments into a Mac.
From past experience, yes, the more Apple sues people for speculation, the more they are on to something... anyone remember the trashcan-style Macs that came out a while back?
