Hello, everyone. We are live.
We'll have comments going for about 30 minutes prior to the 1:00 ET conference start.
Brian Tong, Molly Wood, and Donald Bell will have a live video stream going throughout, and we'll of course have on the scene coverage from Josh Lowensohn, Scott Stein, and James Martin.
Our video stream will be starting shortly.
The event itself starts at 1:00 PM ET
Updated iMac was rumored. I wouldn't be surprised to see a stealth update after the event on Apple's Web site. We'll have to see.
I have a gentlemen's bet with Katzmaier about the iPad Mini. I don't think we'll see it today.
I haven't seen anything regarding the new iPhone and wireless charging. To me, the Qi-based solution in the Nokia 920 seems a little clunky for an Apple design.
@madtyper So far as I know, the Apple event is not being streamed anywhere. So stay right here, and we'll tell you what we know as soon as we know it.
We're having some tech difficulties with our in-house video stream. Hope to have it squared away soon.
Apple has dominant market share in tablets, but Amazon coming on strong with their lower priced Kindles. A smaller, lower cost iPad would help Apple beat Amazon back.
@Chris C So far, rumors of Samsung suing are just that. We'll believe it when they file in court. And even then, the odds of Samsung obtaining a preliminary injunction against the iPhone 5 seem, well, low. Though stranger things have happened in these patent battles already.
@Rich Same with Google's Nexus 7, btw.
I think anything's possible in terms of low key Mac updates after this event. CPU update is long overdue on desktop side.
