Based on information SolipsismX dug up:

2013: New Mac Pro, new Time Capsule, new Airport Extreme
2012: Retina MBP, updated Air
2010: iPhone 4
2009: “the new 13" MacBook Pro, updates to the 15" and 17" MacBook Pros, and the new iPhone 3GS.”
2008: iPhone 3G
2006: original Mac Pro, and Xserve
2005: (announced Intel transition)
2003: first G5 PowerMac and external FW iSight camera

Thanks for collating that information.

i dont follow this. it's an e-ticket system...i show up at the airport, my ticket shows up on my lockscreen for barcode scanning. how is it not user friendly, or a let-down? how much excitement were you expecting to reap from a barcode manager!?

No, there’s a difference in reporting a somewhat substantiated rumor and reporting what some complete moron makes up.

Ugh. Tuesday can't get here soon enough!

Or Monday, even!

I really hate the concept of rumors chasing rumors.

I think that might have been too subtle.

@jkichline, unlike most Apple events which do place on Tuesday the WWDC keynote is on Monday morning to kick off the week long developer sessions. So you have less than 20 hours to go. Practically zero if you take a couple Ambien right now.

Very disappointing - if true. Apple would need something that's very ambitious in this field, if it's to make a mark, and get one up on its competitors.

It would be disappointing that Apple doesn’t live up to COMPLETELY MADE UP SPECULATION ABOUT SOMETHING THERE IS NO HINTING WHATSOEVER THEY ARE DOING, would it?

What's amusing is this rumor turned out to be true. And oddly, the Beats one. That one was annoyingly persistent, I didn't think it would be true.

It reminded me of the television rumor, because both involved rumors on top of rumors including rumors of developmental details.
