    Either that or it will be such a pointless, minute change that Apple is stopping people from getting their hopes up.



    I buy the latter.



    Weird though because all Apple has done is to confirm the agenda that was already being speculated.

    If they nail the iCloud this will be HUGE, but that's a big "IF".



    No more syncing to computer please.

    I myself am very excited to see what iOS5 will bring.



    I agree about iOS5. As of now there is very little information on what the features will be, and nothing on what it will look like!

    One WiFi network better be dedicated to Steve's address that day or heads will roll.

    Dumb, dumb, dumb-ass question:



    Could you run iOS and iOS apps on a Mac via boot camp or virtualization software?



    Thanks in advance for the painful education.



    Flame on!

    Two things we can infer as confirmed: iCloud.com ownership and Steve Jobs as keynote ringmaster.

    Of course not. Unless you're building them yourself in Xcode and have the source code to run through the iPhone Simulator.



    iOS can't work on X86 processors. You can't just install it on a computer.

    Yeah, and they've actually done this a few times recently so it's not the big surprise that everyone is making out it is really.



    Apple is growing and changing, it happens to everyone and everything. They even announced they were doing (shudder) market research lately with what can only be described as an (upscale, high-end, tech oriented) "focus group." blech.



    Personally, I just want them to finally make the computer I've been waiting to exist since about 1968 or so. It still looks to be a few years out, but I think Apple has a shot at making one before they go bad.

    You can run iOS apps on the Mac with the simulator(emulator) in Xcode. However, this is for apps that you complile yourself and wil not work for apps bought from the App Store.



    Boot Camp is only for dual-booting Windows and virtualisation software, like VMware or Parralles, probably could virtualise iOS but there are many legal reasons why they won't even try.

    not so fast. correct that it cannot run as a native OS on such hardware, but it may be possible via a new version of iOS emulator software.

    I'm hoping someone can answer a question I've had since this whole Cloud Storage thing became a hot topic....



    If all of my music etc is stored in the cloud and I'm using 3G to access it, won't I use a crap-ton of data just to listen to my tunes? 5MB or more every time I want to hear a song is going to burn through my 2gigs pretty quick. Plus, won't scrubbing take all day if I want to quickly go back and hear another part of a song?



    Or is that not how it will work? Perhaps I'm missing what's going to be so great about iCloud...?

    Dude apple may just CHANGE THE WHOLE GAME AGAIN

    Maybe apple will now be a CARRIER FOR SOMETHING LIKE SAY A Nano phone !!!!!!



    So buy an apple nano phone and you also get very low priced minutes n voice and almost free data time .

    APPLE would be the gate keeper for us under a no contract phone ,

    Apple might also pre pay billions of dollar's for blocks of carrier time .



    Apple server farm's could be a great data carrier for the NANO cloud phone .



    i can't breathe ..http://www.mobilein.com/what_is_a_mvno.htm



    And at the moment of a call apple would switch us to the the best signal and best price at that exact time ./



    Apple of course will sell any free data time at there server farms .





    rant is over



    if could happen ...



    maybe

    No one with the ability to make a straight iOS emulator has the guts (read: stupidity) to do so out of fear of Apple.

    That's 100% correct. There's really nothing that Apple can do about it.

    Very true... it is interesting how that RDF works. But I wonder if it only works on us 'fanbois' because we know the history. If someone knew absolutely nothing about Apple and Steve, dare I suggest... they would say 'who is this guy and whats he smoking? I know... thems fight'n words....

    Holy crap... 1968. HAL? is that you? - Daaave

    So do share, what is this computer that has had your desire for over 40 years?

One of the problems with Steve and Apple is that he's made it seem like that he's the whole company. His "insistence" on doing these presentations even when he's still officially on personal leave only reinforces the notion that no other executive in the company is capable of making such a presentation except for him.

    Where is this news that Steve is on "personal leave"? Where is this news that Steve Jobs isn't the active CEO of Apple?

    He probably meant medical leave. And yes, he's still CEO anyway.
