    Now the question becomes, with zero substantial announcements on new products or even spec bumps since November 2013, and having promised interesting things "throughout 2014", can Apple REALLY go 8 months with no significant updates, or will we see smaller, private keynotes before June? That's still 59 days away.

    I'm betting it will be dry till then. We'll see.

    I won the 30 second sell-out lottery last year, let's see how I do on the official "random" lottery this year...P.S. There has been speculation on. Twitter about what the ratio of ticket seekers to tickets is going to be. Any takers here? (officially WWDC capacity is 5,000 attendees)

    One of the most accurate of securities analy/sts has laid out what he see's as Apple's 2014 roadmap:

    Here is his dead accurate 2013 one for reference:
    http://www.macrumors.com/2013/01/16/apples-2013-product-roadmap-predictions-multiple-iphones-retina-ipad-mini-all-retina-macbook-pros/

    Obviously take it with a huge grain of salt, but consider me interested in much of the above. Not the watches still, but a faster iPhone 6 with a true 400 dpi 1080 screen and sapphire crystal might make up for looking like a huge dork for a lot of people.

    Ipad Air with A8, Touch ID and better camera? Yes please.

    Not too sure about going smaller on the Macbook Air tho... 12 splits the difference on 11 and 13 sure, but will the retina screen make up for the inch lost?

    The multifunctional iWatch, with a one-to-four-day battery life? :unsure:

    (That's probably the closest anyone's ever come in real life to the old joke about the guy with two big suitcases and a watch that told him the news, stock and weather reports across the country...."Yeah, but these batteries are driving me crazy!")
