    I am thinking Apple will unveil a major push for iBeacons coverage in airports, train and bus stations, malls, hotels, grocery stores, sports arenas and more.

    They've announced a satellite event in London, King's Place, which is just down the street from me.  Does anyone know what happens at the satellite events?  It is just a big screen with a feed from California, or something else?

    Probably because of hotlinking.

    Maybe I missed it somewhere, but do we know yet if it will be streamed?

    The revolution will not be televised, but it might be streamed.

    In November Apple is going to send out an invite that says: "but there's one more thing".

    Why would there be an event for the Mac Pro when it already had one?

    It would be perfect for a new product announcement (at least in my small world, but then, what do I know?).

    Unexpected and imagine how the press and analysts would rave? :))

    They wouldn't focus their title on just their new covers, but 'a lot' to cover?  A new bigger screen iPad?  or a big screen phone announcement?  That would be 'a lot'?

    Please be right!!!

    Yeah thought the same... clearly a leaf

    Will Apple final make the iPad Mini Retina with this year's technology inside if Previous history is any indication - no!

    Apple is reportly do this to prevent the Mini from taking market share away from the iPad 5; so Apple's strategy is to cripple any Mini to make sure it does not compete well with the full size iPad. Sound like a disservice to the consumer. They could increase the price of the new iPad Mini Retina so each has the same profit margin. Let see if Apple is smart enough to find an opening like this and release a state of the art iPad Mini Retina in 2013!

    I tried MS keyboard covers and they didn't impress me. For a start, they require the Surface to be put on a .. wait for it .. surface. So you get a laptop you can't use on your lap. Then, typing on them wasn't great, Finally, they detached too easily from the main unit, with an unreliable connection. These were heavily used demo units in a general consumer electronics store but not that long after launch, so I expected better.


    The invitation's use of the word "cover" obviously hints at something in this direction, but I would be surprised if exactly matches a failed MS offering would be the main announcement.
