Now that the keynote is upon us, it’s time to post the winners of our Keynote Prediction Contest we posted about almost two weeks ago! We’ve been busy, but we managed to find the time to read every entry and choose our favorites. Our original plan was to choose one winner in each category, but there were way too many to be able to do that, so we ended up picking three! Today, we’re announcing the winners in the humor and creativity categories, and we’ll post the most accurate entries later this week. Each winner will get an Insanely Great Tee of their choice.
First up is Daniels iPhone style keyboard…The most intriguing part is the auto adjusting layout. Until now, we always liked our keys to stay where we left them, but maybe a keyboard that’s constantly in motion is just what we need to get the new ideas flowing!
Nicolo jumped outside the box a little with this satisfying entry. We’re a little worried about what all those journalists were doing with their Newtons, but this does explain it’s demise.
Dave managed to find one of the few Apple product lines that desperately needs expansion. Our iPhones feel so naked, now!
Collin tried to find a way to resurrect the Apple TV by adding features of some of our favorite gadgets. It’s hard to say if an Apple TV/Wii or an iPhone/banana would really sell, but you can’t say it’s not creative.
We’re really not sure if Brett was going for humor, creativity, or accuracy…In the end, we decided that he’ll get a shirt for the ‘Historical Accuracy’ category (which is part of creativity, of course). We can’t wait for this new “Aqua” interface!
Daniel, the last winner of the day, really thinks big. We wouldn’t buy the product, but we were won over by his celebrity guest (and maybe we’ve got soft spot for his proclamation of love at the end).
That covers it for the winners of the humor and creativity categories. While we were going through all the entries to find the winner, we noticed a few things. Some were obvious, like ‘people really want a mac tablet’, or ‘everything thinks that Apple is going to release a sub notebook on Tuesday’, but some caught us by surprise. The most shocking thing of all was just how many people are anticipating Apple sex toys, Apple toilets, and even actual replacement body parts (and we don’t mean arms and legs!). We’re not going to post the hundreds of these entries we got, but we did have our lawyers clean one up so we can show you what so many of the entries were like:
Wow. Do you write to your mother with those hands? Anyway, to all you people who didn’t predict an iToilet (or worse), Check in later this week to find out who had the most accurate predictions!
