    Watching liftoff of the Atlas V rocket... but just a few seconds. Very anti-climactic, Craig.

    Federighi appears to be using a newer version of Pages that's been updated for the new OS, but I could be wrong on that. Meanwhile, in demoland, he's been adding tags to documents, and is now replying to a text that just popped up.
  • Tim Stevens 10/22/2013 5:18:57 PM
    Interesting that this new Pages looks very touch-friendly. iOS inspiration, or maybe we'll finally see a touch device today?

    Federighi showing off other Mavericks features like iCloud keychain, which is syncing up his payment information to buy something online.

    Looking at pictures of Apple's new campus. "I, for one, look forward to working in outer space."
  • Josh Lowensohn 10/22/2013 5:21:11 PM
    Federighi showing off some of the other changes in Safari like the new reader mode and viewing open tabs. We hop over to Mail to see how information from messages gets slurped over to other system apps like Calendar.

  • Tim Stevens 10/22/2013 5:21:21 PM
    Watching on twitter, I can see a bunch of you pointing out that none of this is revolutionary. And indeed, you're right. Saved credit card info, passwords, file tagging, directions from calendar appointments... Indeed, it's all been done elsewhere before, but that doesn't mean these aren't great additions to the OS.
  • James Martin 10/22/2013 5:21:39 PM
  • Tim Stevens 10/22/2013 5:22:13 PM
    Hey, look, another gratuitous demo of 3D mapping. Haven't seen that before...
  • Carrie Mihalcik 10/22/2013 5:22:13 PM
  • Josh Lowensohn 10/22/2013 5:22:20 PM
    That includes a handy new feature that estimates how long it will take you to get to an appointment and can give you a reminder when you need to get going. That's integrated with the new Maps app to give you turn by turn directions, etc. And that's the end of the Mavericks demo.
  • James Martin 10/22/2013 5:22:25 PM
  • Josh Lowensohn 10/22/2013 5:22:38 PM
    And now we get to the price and release date...
  • James Martin 10/22/2013 5:22:55 PM
  • Tim Stevens 10/22/2013 5:23:04 PM
    So far, no "Hair Force One" jokes at or from Craig...
  • James Martin 10/22/2013 5:23:19 PM
  • Josh Lowensohn 10/22/2013 5:23:22 PM
    Federighi says the company's reengineered how it develops software to put out more OS releases faster, and made it easier to update to Mac App Store. And another big change is pricing...
  • Tim Stevens 10/22/2013 5:23:22 PM
    "We're going to revolutionize pricing"... some rumblings in the room.
  • Josh Lowensohn 10/22/2013 5:23:28 PM
    Mavericks will be free.
  • Josh Lowensohn 10/22/2013 5:23:40 PM
    Big applause here.
  • James Martin 10/22/2013 5:23:50 PM
  • Josh Lowensohn 10/22/2013 5:24:06 PM
    This will work even if you're on Lion, or still running Snow Leopard, it's a single step update.
  • Josh Lowensohn 10/22/2013 5:24:23 PM
    Works on 2007 iMac, MacBook Pro, 2008 MacBook Air and MacBook, and Mac Pro.
  • Josh Lowensohn 10/22/2013 5:24:26 PM
    Available today
  • Tim Stevens 10/22/2013 5:24:28 PM
    Response to Windows 8.1 being free? Good will from Apple? Why look a gift horse in the mouth. Even if you're on an ancient version of OS X you can upgrade for free. Today!
  • James Martin 10/22/2013 5:24:29 PM
  • Tim Stevens 10/22/2013 5:24:44 PM
    I'd say that's a good start, Apple. A real good start.
  • Josh Lowensohn 10/22/2013 5:24:52 PM
    And up comes Phil Schiller to talk to us about the MacBook.
  • James Martin 10/22/2013 5:25:11 PM
  • Josh Lowensohn 10/22/2013 5:25:14 PM
    Told ya so 2 years ago:

  • Tim Stevens 10/22/2013 5:25:54 PM
    Lots of rave reviews for the Air. Indeed, many people were bowled over by the battery life. Myself, too.
  • dan.ackerman 10/22/2013 5:26:01 PM
    Scott and I are lamenting that we never get called out in the pullquotes from the stage.
  • Josh Lowensohn 10/22/2013 5:26:03 PM
    Schiller kicking off talking about some reviews of the MacBook Air. But now we're talking about the MacBook Pro.
  • dan.ackerman 10/22/2013 5:26:15 PM
    Probably because we don't use phrases like "mind blown."
  • James Martin 10/22/2013 5:26:17 PM
  • Josh Lowensohn 10/22/2013 5:26:40 PM
    Schiller talking up the 13 and 15 inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display, both of which are getting updated today. 13-inch model is now 3.46 pounds, and down to 0.71 inches thick.
