One of the few requirements of being a Mac owner is that you must, at some point in your Mac owning career, dream up some device youid like to see Apple release. Itis expected of you; if you own a Mac you have to have a dream device knocking around somewhere in your cranium, and you have to tell others about it.
Thatis not to say that non-Mac users donit harbor a wish-list theyid like to give to Steve Jobs. We know that PC-people panted and longed for a chance to own an iPod and, something that finally come true for them. Still, prognosticating about future goodies from 1 Infinite Loop is a pastime we Mac lovers love to indulge.
Apparently we are not the only ones; Wired News has published a really interesting list of devices it believes we may see circa 2013, which is not so far from now. The first on their list of technological tidbits from tomorrow is a device they believe will come from Apple: the iPhone (Wired doesnit mention that Apple owns the trademark for iPhone).

The iPhone braceletis motion sensor allows you to scroll through apps and files with the flick of a wrist; its clasp holds a digicam for use during video calls; and its wireless ear clip lets you listen and speak to callers. And everything can be done via voice recognition or touchscreen. Talk about the right call.
