    @LyleCasas says "how about an iWatch? >:)" -- I think we'd love all love to see one!
  • Scott Stein 9/10/2013 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 Stevens 9/10/2013 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 Stevens 9/10/2013 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 Stevens 9/10/2013 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.

    They're filling in the last seats here.
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 4:58:56 PM
    We should be starting shortly...
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/10/2013 4:59:15 PM
  • Scott Stein 9/10/2013 4:59:16 PM
    Just had to stand up so someone could go through. Final boarding...
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 4:59:39 PM
    No Ethernet in our seats here, but we do have power, so we're in pretty good shape.
  • Scott Stein 9/10/2013 5:00:22 PM
    Live stream: looks like no. Hope there's 128GB.
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 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 Stevens 9/10/2013 5:00:56 PM
    Lights are going down, here we go!
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:01:04 PM
    Tim Cook is on the stage!
  • Carrie Mihalcik 9/10/2013 5:01:15 PM
  • Scott Stein 9/10/2013 5:01:15 PM
    We're sitting five rows up from Tim Cook.
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:01:22 PM
    "Good morning! It's great to see everyone. Thank you very much for joining us."
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/10/2013 5:01:30 PM
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:01:31 PM
    "A special welcome goes out to those joining us from Beijing, Berlin and Tokyo this morning."
  • Scott Stein 9/10/2013 5:01:39 PM
    Call out to Beijing and Tokyo.
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:01:47 PM
    "I've got some updates on some exciting things happening around the company this month in September."
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/10/2013 5:01:49 PM
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:02:05 PM
    Tim's talking about the iTunes Festival. "Celebrating our passion for music." He says this is the best year yet.
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:02:24 PM
    30 nights of live performances in London, including Elton John, Jack Johnson, Justin Timberlake, and Robin Thicke.
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/10/2013 5:02:27 PM
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:02:38 PM
    Lady Gaga apparently performed her full album, for those who are in to that sort of thing.
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:02:54 PM
    "Despite it being the hottest ticket in London, we don't charge anything to get in."
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/10/2013 5:02:56 PM
  • Scott Stein 9/10/2013 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 Stevens 9/10/2013 5:03:05 PM
    That got an audible "wow" from the audience. 20 million people tried to get tickets!
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:03:11 PM
    "It's like an opening weekend for a product!" says Tim.
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/10/2013 5:03:19 PM
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:03:28 PM
    Since not everyone can get in, it'll be live-streamed to 100+ countries. "Many" will be on-demand.
  • Scott Stein 9/10/2013 5:03:39 PM
    Talking up how the live-streaming is going out to 100 countries. And the on-demand element via app.
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:03:44 PM
    There's an iOS app, too, for iPhone and iPad. Apple TV, too.
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/10/2013 5:03:50 PM
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:03:55 PM
    "The enthusiasm and excitement around the festival is just incredible."
