I'm still very curious about the tethering function, and how it will work. Will the setting simply be disabled if you do not have an approved tethering plan from the carrier? And our friends at AT&T have been less than helpful. There is no information on their web site on how to add a tethering plan to an existing unlimited iPhone data plan. Presumably one must downgrade. Perhaps a developer with an unlimited plan can load the GM and let us know if the preference is...
The bug preventing backup to disk is still in 10.2. Sure would be nice if they would fix that.
And oh BTW, about the tethering option in iOS4.3: any sign of pricing from our friends at AT&T? Last I saw it was $20/mo extra on an extended contract. That's a big No Thank You, but if they get it to a reasonable price and on a monthly option change (kind of like the plans for a 3G iPad) it sounds very nice.
I would have liked to see a demo of this. Does this mean an app can stream content to my TV via the new $99 Apple TV? Or if I can connect to a web site that displays HD video, I can stream that to my TV/AppleTV? And if so, if I buy a subscription to that video (say, to NHL live games) that I can then stream in HD via wifi to my HDTV...do I know have a way to ditch my cable cable TV box that comcast is raping me for?

All hail Steve!
Maybe it's here and I didn't understand it, but some better integration with TimeMachine would be welcome, particularly with Mr. iTunes. My iTunes library changes a lot, and I'd really like an incremental backup that I can simply switch to if the original drive dies. TM only copies files, and getting back to start after a HD failure looks really painful. And for reasons I still don't understand, I can't seem to do backups to disk out of iTunes anymore. It syas 4 DVDs...
Will it come in white?
OK, I'll say it. Of all the people at the table, I'd guess Obama makes the lowest salary. And how many black people at at that table? At least there's a couple girls.
Presumably Steve-o will be doing the previewing/announcing?
I can understand why a vendor places a fee on a service: because they can, and they have made a business deterimnation it is their best interests (profit) to do so. I do the same when think about buying. I could use the moble hot-spot feature, but will not pay above a certain price for the new convenience. It wasn't part of the original deal when I bought my iPhone. To me, it is not worth an extra $20/mo locked in for 24 months, for example. YMMV. Give me a monthly plan...
