    I'm not at all interested in a touchscreen for a laptop. Don't want the fingerprints all over my screen.

    Hey everyone. We're just getting set up in the room.
  • Shara Tibken 10/27/2016 4:55:33 PM
    We're in Town Hall, which is the auditorium on Apple's campus in Cupertino, California.
  • Carrie Mihalcik 10/27/2016 4:55:36 PM
    Heads up, comments will shut down shortly.
  • Shara Tibken 10/27/2016 4:56:07 PM
    The last event here was "probably the last event" held at Town Hall, but here we are! Apple is building a massive new spaceship campus that should open in the coming months.

    God damn, you're spot on with the touchscreen and fingerprints. I have a touchscreen laptop, and way back when the touchscreen worked, fingerprints was an issue.

    We're expecting a lot of Mac talk today.
  • BatMac 10/27/2016 4:56:21 PM
    Sims like Apple is getting behind other companies, hope hey realize their position and gain again the "innovation" they claim to have.

    Apple hasn't significantly updated its MacBook Pro line in over four years.

    Hi from 1 Infinite Loop! Dan Ackerman here (@danackerman on Twitter) -- I'm sitting with Connie and Shara, and we're going to give you some live updates and context as you watch the livestream...

    Apple's computer line isn't as buzzy or updated as often as its phones and tablets. We're hoping to hear why the Mac still matters to Apple -- and why all of us should care about new computers.

    All of Apple's top execs are in the front row. We also spotted Intel's CEO, Brian Krzanich. Intel has supplied chips for the Mac for a decade.

    Here we go. Lights are dimming.
  • Shara Tibken 10/27/2016 5:01:18 PM
    We're starting with a video talking about accessibility.
  • dan.ackerman 10/27/2016 5:01:25 PM
    We're all a little surprised that this event is happening here in the theater -- word was that the previous event here was the last before moving to a new location.
  • Shara Tibken 10/27/2016 5:01:46 PM
    It's showing the ways Apple devices help disabled people live normal lives.

    Tim Cook, opening with accessibility, nice change-up from the usual jump-right-into numbers and products start.
