Usually apple is updating the Apple Store during the Keynote...

We are 2 hours for the Keynote and Apple is already working on the Apple Store...

What is going on??? Is there more than the "IPAD HD"???

This is strange.

Wonder who will be taking the lead on this keynote. No doubt it's going to get a lot of extra attention since it's the first big one since Steve died. Tim Cook or Phill Schiller perhaps?

It's an updated Digital AV dongle.

Not that strange. Sometimes they take it down all night.

Resolution independent user interface design

Abstract

Graphical user interface material map objects are specified by a collection of attribute-value pairs, the collection of which comprises a complete description of the material map and may be used by a rendering engine to create a visual representation of the material map at any resolution. That is, material map representations in accordance with the invention are resolution independent. Another benefit of representing material maps in accordance with the invention is that they may be encrypted to prevent unauthorized inspection or use.

Inventors: \tZimmer; Mark (Aptos, CA)
Assignee: \tApple Inc. (Cupertino, CA)
Appl. No.: \t11/459,140
Filed: \tJuly 21, 2006

Related filing document goes back to 2004.

It's taken this long for Apple to acquire this patent.

"TIE FighterDX", anyone?

Tie Fighter is one of my all time favorite games. I really wouldn't mind seeing a new take on it.

Are you predicting that any iOS device that can install iOS 5.1 will be receive Siri? Bold prediction because I haven't read that anywhere, but I like it. I won't hold my breath since it could slow sales of iPhone4S and iPad3 if you could just install Siri on your old device.

I mean, I know it could happen. Apple saying Siri needs the hardware of the iPhone 4S to function is absolute crap. It seems to be mostly cloud based and Android devices with FAR less horsepower than an iPhone4 have had voice command support for some time. They could have just said it was an iPhone 4S exclusive feature and left it at that.

Sometimes I think Apple says more than they really need to.

EDIT: OH. Unless they let you PAY for a Siri update. That would both be awesome and would make them a ton of money. I could live with that.

I think it's time for Siri to migrate to other devices, they have had a chance to iron out the bugs by now. Maybe it will just be the new Apple TV, but I hope it is older devices too.

Apple's been lining up all aspects of Resolution Independence and it's accompanying application spaces before they bring it to the general consumer. Getting the Patents to do so are a must. The goal is to bring Res-I to all UIs across the entire Apple Ecosystem.

Looks like most sites are using Scribble Live these days. No reader comments :-(

Anyway, I think the haptic rumour is interesting and a strong possibility given the evidence.

It's not the same as the chat systems that Cover It Live! etc, used to provide. Not everything said needs to be immortalised in a forum.

Anyway, the folks at The Verge are in the queue now. 40 minutes to go!

Apple has been playing around with RI for years. http://www.tuaw.com/2007/01/09/resol...-cabel-sasser/

It is not coming anytime soon although I would be happy to be wrong.

I think several of those will come to pass. One huge exclusion is no mention of new Airport routers if you think the iPad will get 802.11ac. I personally don't expect 802.11ac to arrive until the next MBPs at which time we'll get new routers.

I would pay $15 for a version of Tie Figher or X-Wing vs Tie-Fighter on the iphone or ipad. Even if they kept all graphics and gameplay the same but just increased resolution. shaded polygon graphics are ok with me. It was the gameplay that was the best.

New iPad. New Apple TV. New AV adapter.

No iPods. No televisions (HA!).

I'm finding the gtgt coverage pretty good. Quick updates. Photos. Direct quotes without a lot of editorialising.
