@LyleCasas says "how about an iWatch? >:)" -- I think we'd love all love to see one!
Scott Stein9/10/2013 4:55:35 PM
Okay, sitting down next to Tim and Josh and Seamus! Just got the "switch devices to silent" alert. Off we go.
Tim Stevens9/10/2013 4:55:39 PM
"Please turn all electronic devices to silent mode." We're only about five minutes away!

@Derek_Kim "An iCar modeled after the Magic Mouse. My 2004 Pontiac Vibe just ain't cutting it anymore." -- So aerodynamic! And in a crash the other car would just run right over you. Would probably only get 5mpg if the battery life in the Magic Mouse is any indication, though.

That is unflattering. But at least I'm comfy.
Tim Stevens9/10/2013 4:57:33 PM
@niladrihaldar "we might see a preview of the OSX Mavericks, possible final release date as well..." -- Pretty likely, I'd say. Maybe Tom Cruise will come out and make the announcement. We did already see Al Gore. Maybe he isn't the only celebrity.

I'll be providing commentary alongside Tim Stevens. Stay tuned. Hang tight. Music is upbeat. Power outlets in seats. Nice padding.
Tim Stevens9/10/2013 4:58:24 PM
@JediChris9476 "my prediction or hope is that they will elaborate on hearing aids that r iPhone Ready.I'm ready foriOS 7 and new hardware news!" -- Now that's an interesting thought. More/better adaptive tech would certainly be a warmly received thing.
Just had to stand up so someone could go through. Final boarding...
Tim Stevens9/10/2013 4:59:39 PM
No Ethernet in our seats here, but we do have power, so we're in pretty good shape.
Scott Stein9/10/2013 5:00:22 PM
Live stream: looks like no. Hope there's 128GB.
Tim Stevens9/10/2013 5:00:43 PM
@avidfan451 "i'd like to see more about those iOS 7 geofencing capabilities with low power bluetooth..." -- More powerful geofencing that's easy to use could be a huge coup. I'd love to see some now iOS7 features myself.
Tim Stevens9/10/2013 5:00:56 PM
Lights are going down, here we go!
Tim Stevens9/10/2013 5:01:04 PM
Tim Cook is on the stage!
Carrie Mihalcik9/10/2013 5:01:15 PM
Scott Stein9/10/2013 5:01:15 PM
We're sitting five rows up from Tim Cook.
Tim Stevens9/10/2013 5:01:22 PM
"Good morning! It's great to see everyone. Thank you very much for joining us."
Josh Lowensohn9/10/2013 5:01:30 PM
Tim Stevens9/10/2013 5:01:31 PM
"A special welcome goes out to those joining us from Beijing, Berlin and Tokyo this morning."
Scott Stein9/10/2013 5:01:39 PM
Call out to Beijing and Tokyo.
Tim Stevens9/10/2013 5:01:47 PM
"I've got some updates on some exciting things happening around the company this month in September."

Tim's talking about the iTunes Festival. "Celebrating our passion for music." He says this is the best year yet.
Tim Stevens9/10/2013 5:02:24 PM
30 nights of live performances in London, including Elton John, Jack Johnson, Justin Timberlake, and Robin Thicke.
Josh Lowensohn9/10/2013 5:02:27 PM
Tim Stevens9/10/2013 5:02:38 PM
Lady Gaga apparently performed her full album, for those who are in to that sort of thing.
Tim Stevens9/10/2013 5:02:54 PM
"Despite it being the hottest ticket in London, we don't charge anything to get in."
Josh Lowensohn9/10/2013 5:02:56 PM
Scott Stein9/10/2013 5:02:58 PM
So, the iTunes festival leads off discussions. Showing London venue for iTunes concerts. Reminds me of all the free preview album streams this past year.
Tim Stevens9/10/2013 5:03:05 PM
That got an audible "wow" from the audience. 20 million people tried to get tickets!
Tim Stevens9/10/2013 5:03:11 PM
"It's like an opening weekend for a product!" says Tim.
Josh Lowensohn9/10/2013 5:03:19 PM
Tim Stevens9/10/2013 5:03:28 PM
Since not everyone can get in, it'll be live-streamed to 100+ countries. "Many" will be on-demand.
Scott Stein9/10/2013 5:03:39 PM
Talking up how the live-streaming is going out to 100 countries. And the on-demand element via app.
Tim Stevens9/10/2013 5:03:44 PM
There's an iOS app, too, for iPhone and iPad. Apple TV, too.
Josh Lowensohn9/10/2013 5:03:50 PM
Tim Stevens9/10/2013 5:03:55 PM
"The enthusiasm and excitement around the festival is just incredible."
