Remember that most announcements at WWDC are for things that will ship in the future, not things that ship right away. I expect a pro level Mac announcement, clarification, but no shipping model until later in the year. Just my guess.
One thing I forgot to mention. It was explained to me that almost 80% of what we paid for Final Cut Studio was strictly to cover packaging costs. Think about it. Engineers have to code the installer, licensing codes, the DVD data layouts; designers had to design the boxing, the graphics and layouts; copy writers had to write, design, layout the printed manuals; more people to design and code the online manuals; etc, etc, etc. A LOT of the time it took to deliver new major updates were strictly all of that packaging and support creation, not coding. Time manufacturing those boxes, books, disks, assymbally, shipping, whew...
Thus, at only $299, Apple is making a ton of profit doing App Store delivery. I was told don't worry about if FCPX is financially successful, it is. Higher profit margin than FCP 7, and TONS MORE copies sold in 1/3 of the time. Do the math. That's just common sense, I didn't need to be told that.
Now, take this one step further, apply it to Adobe. They justify the subscription model, which is the same online delivery method, they tout the price based on the boxed packaging prices. I say bullhockey! Those apps now cost much less, make Adobe higher profit margin, exactly like Apple. So online delivered Photoshop in reality should retail a flat out purchase for only about $50, period. So now explain how it saves anyone money? Total rip off scam, IMHO.
Now, to fuel the speculation parade even more:
That is all, resume your normal thread posts.
