Macworld Expo is only a bit more than month away, and we are expecting surprises. We heard that CNBC is reporting about Apple plans at Macworld to introduce a 12-inch Mac laptop with flash memory in place of a hard drive.

There are suggestions that the ultraportable Mac is 50 percent thinner and lighter than a current MacBook Pro, the largest notebook in Apple’s lineup. The pricing is expected to be at $1,500, the same price as the 13.3-inch black MacBook.

Also, we can expect 3G version of the iPhone. Let us wait a bit.

Another nudge to iPhone. Time named iPhone the “Invention of the year” for five reasons.

1. The iPhone is pretty

2. It’s touchy-feely

3. It will make other phones better

4. It’s not a phone, it’s a platform

5. It is but the ghost of iPhones yet to come

When all that is left from the mankind would be a capsule with Google, E.T. would think that iPhone is a term for all phones. Like that Xerox thing.
