It's only a few minutes into the iPad Multitasking lecture. He says "Remember last year, we showed you a bunch of interface changes that later made sense in light of a then-unnacounced product?" And then he went on to basically say the same thing was happening there in his talk about the iPad and added "emphasis on P" and everyone in the room understood him. edit: "Optimizing Your App for Multitasking on iPad in iOS 9" I think it is. It's pretty soon into the lecture.
Not quite sure, but are you really arguing that there won't be an i7 for either the iMacs or the MBPs?
No. There have been no interface changes in OS X that would support a touch interface. Those would require enormous foundational changes, which would have been shown at WWDC. If you paid attention, there was a session where the presenter actually said there's an iPad Pro coming... and it was an iOS talk.
That's what I thought when I read this, too. I doubt very much that Apple will do this, even if it is true that they are investigating it.
Ah yes, the threat of unwelcome association. "If you stand stand X, you have to be in repugnant group Y." I haven't heard someone make that argument since 3rd grade. The only truth you've illuminated is your own lack of empathy. I have no fondness for the confederate flag or for white supremacists. But doing something wrong in the name of a high ideal is still doing something wrong. Period.
It's strange you'd say that, since that's exactly what they did. Then they encountered a storm of criticism and relented a bit. Personally I have no fondness for the confederate flag, but Apple is getting far too anxious to swing its enormous clout like a political billy club. Too much of that and you start to look like a bully. None of us has the right to erase history by removing all references to an ideology that you view with repugnance. And there's additionally a...
 liberal != supported free speechWhat precisely do you think political correctness is?
Kind of ironic that living in a ghetto you'd be so comfortable spouting such ugly bigotries. 
This is only a step shy of other orthodoxies destroying historical sites and records (Al Qaeda, ISIS, North Korea, USSR). Do not get so overzealous about your point of view that you start thinking it's okay to erase a "bad" demographic from history. 
There's better reporting of this elsewhere (as is all too often the case for AI, these days, I'm afraid). To summarize though: In previous years, AltConf restreamed with no apparent objections from Apple. This time, AltConf wanted to charge people $300 a head to watch. I agree with Apple. That really does crosses the line.
