Live text and photo coverage from AppleInsider can be viewed at our official live blog.

Coverage is also available direct from Apple with a video stream available on the company's website.

Note that the placeholder image Apple has up on the stream is pretty big. It’s almost big enough to turn into a desktop image.

 

Stupid Content Aware Fill. Thanks, Adobe. :p

It will be interesting to see if they pull off a Retina Mini. It's almost a test for Apple. They've been very slow with turnaround lately. If they did manage to make a Retina Mini happen, that will seriously encourage investors, and we might see a little boost in their market cap. If they didn't, the street is going to be horrible to them. Again.

It's one thing to announce it - it's another to deliver it,
That will affect the market more if it's automatically sold out until 2014.

Retina Mini please.  A7 Mini please.  Blow my socks off!  I'll be happy with either/or though- both have distinct advantages.

Well, the iPhone got it's own event, and the iPad and Mac share an event. That's ok, we all know what the biggest selling product is, but I'm a Mac and iPad guy so this event is going to be more fun for me than the last one.

Samsung & others could only dream of such an anticipated phone release.  Video is amazing

Ugh that launch day video looked staged. Ridiculously so.

The four Macs he has set up are running Mavericks (of course).

 

Good sign.

Your point is what, bucko? It never had them before. Why would you think it would get one now?

My point, "sport," is many of us had our fingers crossed for discrete graphics this time around.
post #27 of 71

Oh, while Craig is talking about it, a point on OS X’s Maps that I don’t think I’ve shared myself yet:

FULL SCREEN MAPS IS WONDERFUL. It’s just a great experience. I’d love if Flyover let you angle down a bit more, but all in all it’s just FUN to do.

Don’t get caught up in me: you’ll end up making my own point instead of your own. 

 

Oh, and why the heck would you have thought that? What indication would there have been for Apple to do that?

 

Look, they’ve commissioned Intel to do them a custom integrated GPU to blow away the power of dedicated ones. Just wait two years. I’m not joking.

 

Also,

FREEEEEEE

About time, actually. iOS has always been free except in one case years ago.

In all honesty Ireland merely made a guess in the same way analysts do but he never made an argument as to why it could be and how it would benefit Apple, developers and customers if they made it free.

PHEW. 15” still has a dedicated GPU.

 

Lower prices are great. Eventually they’ll kill the old models.

 

Heck, they may already have.

 

And at $1999, they’ve definitely killed off the old models. That’s the price of the pre-unibody before 2008.
