    Hello, everyone. We are live.
  • Rich Brown 9/12/2012 4:01:37 PM
    We'll have comments going for about 30 minutes prior to the 1:00 ET conference start.

    iPhone 5 just doesn't make since. 6th phone and every iPhone has reasoning behind it's name. 3G because of connection. 4 because it was the 4th. And 4S because it was the 4 with Siri. But the 6th phone called 5. Better have 5 cool features.

  • Frank 9/12/2012 4:08:04 PM
    Any chance of a updated imac
  • Rich Brown 9/12/2012 4:08:40 PM
    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.
  • Hardeep 9/12/2012 4:09:10 PM
    This is real exciting.. cant wait ! Hoping there wont be legal battles surrounding the iPhone 5 !

    The iPad Mini should be announced today, but won't Just iPhone/iPod Touch 5th gen and iPod Nano, as well as a new iTunes.
  • Rich Brown 9/12/2012 4:11:54 PM
    I have a gentlemen's bet with Katzmaier about the iPad Mini. I don't think we'll see it today.
  • Iphone2TMoPlease 9/12/2012 4:12:24 PM
    i hope its comes to T-MO finally
  • madtyper 9/12/2012 4:12:53 PM
    @Kevin Totally agree Been saying that for a year and finally after explaining myself a 100x's i posted this
  • Rich Brown 9/12/2012 4:13:08 PM
    T Mobile has an alternate plan for the iPhone 5:
  • James Martin 9/12/2012 4:13:32 PM

    In the photog line.

  • AnteroJ 9/12/2012 4:13:40 PM
    Hi! What do you think about iPhone 5's wireless charging? We know it has a new smaller plug for charger, so will there be wireless chargig at all? Awesome live blog, btw :)
  • James Martin 9/12/2012 4:14:12 PM
  • Norman Hopkins 9/12/2012 4:14:18 PM
    @Kevin How does the iPhone five not make sense? if they went to iphone6 everyone would be clamoring for months asking what happened to 5.
  • Parrish 9/12/2012 4:14:33 PM
    I'm one of the weird ones on this, I guess. I'm most anxious to hear about iOS 6 for the iPad I bought just a few months ago.
  • Chris C 9/12/2012 4:15:07 PM
    Will we even get the iPhone in the US? Reports of Samsung suing to block them from being imported.
  • Nate 9/12/2012 4:15:18 PM
    Is there a strong possibility of pre-ordering today off the apple store site? If so, what account credentials are needed?
  • Rich Brown 9/12/2012 4:15:18 PM
    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.
  • seth.meyers 9/12/2012 4:15:46 PM
    I hope Samsung doesn't sue Apple over 4G LTE use in the iPhone 5. Yes, Samsung does hold the patent, and normally I'm pro-Samsung. But suing is not the right way to get what you want.
  • madtyper 9/12/2012 4:15:58 PM
    @David Hamilton will it be posted on here or somewhere else?
  • David Hamilton 9/12/2012 4:16:28 PM
    @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.
  • Devan 9/12/2012 4:17:08 PM
    wow, great to see everyone from buzz out loud back again! too bad it really was only apple events
  • Rich Brown 9/12/2012 4:17:20 PM
    We're having some tech difficulties with our in-house video stream. Hope to have it squared away soon.
  • stikky22 9/12/2012 4:17:32 PM
    why an ipad mini? whats the point
  • Rich Brown 9/12/2012 4:18:34 PM
    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.
  • David Hamilton 9/12/2012 4:18:55 PM
    @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.
  • bmferreira13 9/12/2012 4:19:58 PM
    chances of the mac mini getting a silent update after this?
  • David Hamilton 9/12/2012 4:20:12 PM
    @Rich Same with Google's Nexus 7, btw.
  • James Martin 9/12/2012 4:20:16 PM
  • Rich Brown 9/12/2012 4:20:43 PM
    I think anything's possible in terms of low key Mac updates after this event. CPU update is long overdue on desktop side.
