Yeah, it's typical before any of these things that people will have a lot of speculation. :) Come on, you know the game, take a guess at what kind of thing you think they'd roll out? The only things we know for certain: iCloud (logos and contracts are public) iOS5 (because enough people broke NDA and because it's logical) And outside of that.. it's all guesswork, so come on Sam, take some guesses what do you want to see ;) Sometimes Apple events remind me of a movie that was "eh" "PayCheck" Now, reverse engineer me something ;)

Digging the new spiral galaxy desktop they are using.  Otherwise it's an "I already know all this crap" snoozefest so far.

Trying to catch up, reading This Is My Next. Their system is borked. It's got 4 pages or 3 pages or 7 pages of history depending on what I click.


Maybe Ars can get me up to speed.


...


Nope. They're using the same screwed up system too. Bummer.

Yes, but I want to go back to the beginning and start from there...the system is not going through its history correctly.
