I don't think Apple will want anyone to make that assumption, I think they are going somewhere with this MacBook thing, seeing that the one just released has Pro after it. I think the iBook is due for a name change too, seeing the internet is pretty much common place now, I'm thinking MacBook Lite or something to that effect will replace it.
If things were different, they wouldn't be the same.
seems wide aspect is the nom now, would they release a 'square' one at all?

That would be branding suicide. Apple -- a company that has always been a about strong branding -- has built a name for it's 'i' line of products and it wouldn't make sense to toy with that success. The popularity of the iPod has reached critical mass and Apple is trying to woo those consumers to it's platform. Branding is what will bring them in, and it's the advantage of the platform that will sell them on it.
Who is to say that the 'i' still stands for Internet. It could, as one poster mentioned, stand for Intel. Or perhaps even intelligence, innovation, integrity, etc.
