If they have made some kind of Gold alloy, I'm sure there'll be a Jony Ive video about it in a few hours.
I hope to get some more information on the Watch's OS, i.e. is it a cut down version of iOS, same as iOS is a cut down version of OS X, or is it the full/same iOS as you get on an iPhone?   And even though the Watch will be the focus of the event, I hope they do some Mac updates first. Maybe a new Macbook Air/Pro, or the release of 10.10.3 with Photos app.
I don't mind paying movie ticket prices to rent a movie on iTunes if it comes out at the same time as the theatre. Once it leaves the theatre the price should drop down to a more typical video rental kind of price.
Well, I think if you believe in putting customers first, ahead of developers, then it's not so unrealistic.

Maybe it's just a case of 2 engineers at a party full of singers and actors latching on to each other.
Yep, I also used to write ObjC apps using retain/release before GC or ARC were available. In fact manual retain/release is probably a little bit more efficient than ARC as it doesn't have to go searching up the stack to see if it should release a var at the end of a method or not.
Splitting apart atoms and getting at the energy inside seems like a very clever way to get energy, but solar seems like a more "obvious" way. The Sun is beaming down free energy on us 24/7, all we need to do is capture it (well 12/7, if you happen to be facing away from the Sun at the time :).    Fossil fuels are a gift of nature... all those rotting plants for millions of years, just sitting in the ground in an energy dense sludge. But there isn't an unlimited amount of...
