I'd like to know your opinion on Apples secrecy regarding new products? Does the advantages out way the cost and hassle of maintaining secrecy?

OK so what will be the difference between the current apple tv and the new one besides the hardware being inbedded in the TV itself???

Question for Brian Tong as he is the Apple Byte guy. Do you think a retina iMac is ever a possibility? Or is it too pricey to manufacture and Apple to justify without alienating customers with an extortionate price tag? Also, what do you believe the likelihood of a 13 inch retina MBP release this year is? Greetings from the East coast of Canada.
Tommy Ace10/23/2012 4:43:40 PM
I would love Apple to release a retina 14 inch or 16 inch mac pro... won't happen, but one can dream ;-D. Apple Maps is horrible but at least they have great company navigator app's you can buy for $80 + ;-D Loving the show form Australia WoOOo

what is the Music Jukebox of choice? I just switched to Amazon Cloud because I bought a galaxy s3, and I can download and stream.

Do you really think people will consider switching from iPhone to Windows just because software? Remember Surface's presentation, the guy needed to switch the tablet because it frizzed?
William Bill Billy Rheaume10/23/2012 4:43:52 PM
How come no one is talking about the iOS6 data leak. I used 2gb in a week and I have never gone over 2gb in a month? AT&T knows there is a problem they gave me a $50 credit. But this is a major problem and no one is talking about it.

I just hope they don't strip it down too much it I would be willing to pay more for something really good but in the smaller size. I really hope it has a good camera in it.

If apple wants to keep cred, they gotta go 199 or less on price (maybe a 8GB option..??)
Aaron crawford10/23/2012 4:44:27 PM
The venue looks amazing
David Hamilton10/23/2012 4:45:00 PM
Folks, we're shutting down comments now. But we'll be back after Apple's presentation, so don't go away.
Declan McCullagh10/23/2012 4:46:20 PM
As David said, we're taking a break from comments during the event so we can all see what our CNET team in San Jose is reporting. Otherwise it would be too hard to follow what they're saying.
Declan McCullagh10/23/2012 4:47:49 PM
But please stick around. We'll turn on comments again after we have the news.
Declan McCullagh10/23/2012 4:48:10 PM

Rich Brown10/23/2012 4:48:22 PM
Hello everyone. Made it through the scrum and we're inside.
David Hamilton10/23/2012 4:48:56 PM
Howdy, guys. What can you tell us about the venue, the set dressing, the crowd, etc.?

Big crowd here today. Nothing on stage but two bottles of water and a remote control.
James Martin10/23/2012 4:50:29 PM
Declan McCullagh10/23/2012 4:52:26 PM
Josh: Any glimpses of VIPs? Apple executives? How many people are in the theater?
James Martin10/23/2012 4:52:38 PM
David Hamilton10/23/2012 4:53:03 PM
Our team in the theater is still getting settled, including getting their Wi-Fi connections set up.
David Hamilton10/23/2012 4:53:18 PM
Though James is shooting away.

Josh Lowensohn10/23/2012 4:54:20 PM
Fun fact: Apple's last time here was to debut the video iPod.
Declan McCullagh10/23/2012 4:54:22 PM
FYI Apple's event is scheduled to begin in about seven minutes (though sometimes there's a brief delay).
James Martin10/23/2012 4:56:08 PM
Declan McCullagh10/23/2012 4:56:16 PM
In case you missed it earlier: Here's Josh's preview of the event from last week: news.cnet.com And the latest round of rumors and speculation suggest we may have some Mac Mini news today as well: news.cnet.com

And now I'm going to turn it over to our live CNET team from the San Jose theater. Talk to you again once the event is over!
Josh Lowensohn10/23/2012 4:56:56 PM
Just got the "please switch off your phones" message. Event's a few minutes away.

Josh Lowensohn10/23/2012 4:58:22 PM
Now playing "It's time" by the band Imagine Dragons. Indeed.

Scott Stein10/23/2012 4:59:56 PM
Finally! Logged in. Wow that has hard. Hopefully I'm not on delay.
Scott Stein10/23/2012 5:00:15 PM
Hi everyone. So, this theater was a lot harder to file people into.
