Last minute Macworld rumours

The last minute rumours now spreading across the blogosphere are a welcome return of the Apple plasma display and DVR mutterings that were knocking around earlier this month. I have to agree with Nick Carr here, it's a wonderful pre-Macworld rumour, if only because it's so unlikely, but yet so possible...

Update: Kevin Rose, who has a good history of predicting the Macworld announcements, has made just made a midnight post with his predictions for this year.

He's expecting a new thinner, dual core, 15" Intel iBook which will ship in February. Along with this he's also predicting the release of the long awaited iPod FM receiver, the much rumoured iLife '06, "photocasting" software in iPhoto, the Mac OS X 10.4.4 update and some sort of remote control, perhaps to go with a new release of Front Row?

Update: Kevin Rose's predictions just appeared on Engadget...

Update: Both the Apple Store and .Mac have gone down for the keynote, and the press are being let in from the holding area. Here we go...
