    Any other tech people on this site the wrong side of 50 that feel like 7 year olds the week before your 8th Birthday?

    On a different subject, AppleInsider's continued use of the phrase "fondle new products" is a little creepy.

    ... But probably accurate :-)

    Does it count if I’m excited about the new iPhone but feel in general that I’m on the other side of 50? I have the hair for it, at least.

    If we are talking about iWatch as a wrist worn tracker, I can follow every moment with HealthKit. If iWatch is a new AppleTV I can follow every moment when iWatch. I am so confused....

     

    Will iWatch the event and follow every moment? Absolutely!

    The last time they had all black Apple logo and background when they announced the iPhone. This is all white. Looks like something significant.

    This is gonna be huge.

    Yeah, seems like a really big build-up. I'm hoping for a breakthrough in alternative energy technology, or something comparably significant. Maybe they're just going to buy Tesla and put all of their resources behind it to make it more practical for the average consumer. Any other far-flung fantasies out there?

    Definitely sounds like an iWatch announcement. "Wish we could say more." Like a ..."One More Thing"

    And the countdown? Time. Apple doesn't do countdowns. Why now?

    I'm surprised no one has called about the very strong wording on the page.  "Live video from our special event will be right here.  And so will a whole lot more."

     

    This flat out promises that Apple.com will be serving up more than just video from the event.  So not only will we be wowed by the products being rolled out, but apparently the ways it's presented on Apple.com will also be remarkable.  (And hype worthy.)

     

    Either the folks at Apple have gone insane, or Tuesday will be special.

     

    (And I can't resist saying... maybe the 'whole lot more' that will be on Apple.com are nude celebrity photos direct from iCloud!)

    Good. This is how it should always be done. Allow anyone using anything to watch it.


     

    A very "Cookian" move (and a welcome one by me) as his style's being added to the corp's ongoing DNA....

    Ha, I remember that bit of super over hype as well....  ...at least Woz liked (likes?) his....



    ...and about 20 years earlier, the NY Times going gaga over the development of diamond film - that was going to replace many states of other industrial arts from integrated circuits to (still uninvented) smart phone screens...  ...so where are our diamond screen phones while we're still anticipating less ultimate sapphire ones...??



    Anyway, I 'spect more to come out of 9/9's doin's in the short term than either of those bits of journalistic hyperbole.

    Pretty sure that was last years WWDC, but I did watch threw the event and remember the total difference.

    Aha, that explains the memory I have of that little car snafu. So that event was streamed live. I just read about the editing the other day. Memory serves after all, however pale and wan.

    So are these events always live streamed?
    Most of them, at least everyone for last 2-3 years. Usually they announce day of not 5 days ahead, as well they do limit it to certain devices on the few years ago ones.

    That's not true at all! This is the first time this event has been live streamed (at least for the last 5 years). Apple has live streamed many of their other events - but not this one - at least not for the last 5 years. I know because I've eagerly followed every new phone announcement since the 3GS and each year I've had to tune in to one of many live BLOGs because there was no live STREAM!

    I'm looking forward to Tuesdays event more than I look forward to Christmas or my Birthday! So excited!!!

    Couldn't agree more with your last point. Maybe it's just me, but I've never heard it used in a context not creepy-related.

    I expect this will be available on the Apple TV as well. I just can't wait to watch this one.

     

    WWDC 2014 was a blockbuster.  This is the yin to WWDC's yang. The features they couldn't demo at WWDC will finally be unveiled!

    Oh, is that when they’re predicting? M class or X class?

     

    I’d actually prefer to have the grid wiped out for a few weeks. It would force our government to get off their hinders and pass legislation that would create hundreds of thousands of jobs in the fields of electronics and construction. We’d finally BURY our electric lines where they belong, making our cities more beautiful and safe from this sort of thing.

     

    I’m not really one for jobs created by a government specifically for a time of crisis, but this is sort of important.
