09:54AM PDT - 8 minutes until we start

09:49AM PDT - All sorts of internets are failing here

09:42AM PDT - I know I've viewed the 13-inch rMBP as effectively a hypothetical 13-inch rMBA, but given all of the 2560x1440 13.3-inch Ultrabooks announced in Taiwan last week I'm wondering if we should be talking about a retina MBA again.

09:40AM PDT - Ok I think that's all the brain dump for now

09:34AM PDT - But that's a discussion for another WWDC (and another piece of silicon, and process node ;)...)

09:34AM PDT - Ultimately I think 10-inch tablets go away and are replaced by some sort of hybrid construct. The tablet market as we know it instead consolidates around 7 - 8". If this happens, it brings up an interesting question of what Apple OS a hypothetical tablet/MBA convergence device would run.

09:33AM PDT - Apologies for the double photo, WiFi is predictably already being a little weird

09:31AM PDT - At some point we'll have to have a discussion about bringing OS X down to lower power devices, but I suspect that discussion won't happen until next WWDC.

09:30AM PDT - I'll admit that iOS seemed to scale better than I thought it would, but I'd love to see a rebirth here that allows iOS to scale in terms of complexity.

09:29AM PDT - With iOS I'm hoping to see something more scalable than what we've had with iOS. I remember writing about the iOS UI/UX back during the 3G/3GS days and commenting that the OS didn't feel like it'd be able to maintain its impressive simplicity while scaling out in terms of functionality and 3rd party apps.

09:27AM PDT - That's it for Mac. On the iOS side the obvious expectation is to see iOS 7. Everyone has been talking about a significantly updated UI/UX.

09:26AM PDT - Oh, one thing I forgot to mention on the Mac hardware side: I'm fully expecting Apple to adopt M.2 for its mobile SSDs. Perhaps even a PCIe implementation? So we could see a big boost in storage performance. 802.11ac would also be an obvious thing to include.

09:25AM PDT - That's on the Mac hardware front. I'm hoping that we'll get some on a new version of OS X. We still need features like true connected standby, so an update is definitely in order. I'd also love to see FileVault leverage something similar to MS' eDrive spec for Windows 8.

09:24AM PDT - I'm not expecting full launch of a new Mac Pro, maybe a teaser. If Mac Pro is indeed based on IVB-E, availability wouldn't be until later this year. Apple could always go to Haswell but those wanting tons of cores would be disappointed.

09:23AM PDT - The large L4 cache could do wonders for aspects of OS performance, but I'd expect a gaming perf regression. On the OS X side, since Apple controls more of the software stack, it's entirely possible that the pain of moving away from GT 650M wouldn't be all that bad

09:23AM PDT - On the 15-inch rMBP I'm expecting Apple to abandon NVIDIA for Intel's Iris Pro graphics, which has huge implications.

09:22AM PDT - Anyway, I'm still expecting a dual-core 13-inch rMBP. Maybe with GT3 graphics though, which would be nice.

09:22AM PDT - (uh I think Al Gore just showed up)

09:21AM PDT - I don't expect the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display to change in terms of CPU core count

09:21AM PDT - Haswell U/ULT based MacBook Airs should come with substantially better battery life. Given what we saw in Taiwan last week, I would love to see Apple push for higher res panels there but I'm not sure that we'll see it.

09:20AM PDT - On the Mac side I expect to see Haswell updates to all of the notebooks at least

09:20AM PDT - So let's talk about expectations a bit

09:17AM PDT - Park it here for live updates from the event. Brian is on photos, I'll be typing and Brian will be chiming in with his usual awesome analysis

09:15AM PDT - The keynote will start in about 45 minutes

09:15AM PDT - But it's already started slowing down, this should be fun :)

09:14AM PDT - We're seated, the WiFi started out amazing http://www.speedtest.net/result/2764548905.png

    "always encrypted (256-bit AES) on device when pushed, only on trusted devices"

    Is NSA a trusted "device"?

    who said they're letting you make that decision? intel has already enabled it on chip, and if you're buying intel, you've already made your decision. Reply

    Verizon willingly gave up this data. The NSA did not hack into it. Reply

    These battery life and UI GPU improvements, I wonder how far back these will go? Like, C2D/320M? Reply

    Seriously. When you are done with the updates please but the posts on this page in a first to last order. Reply

    Old Mac Pro as dual GPU. Reply

    I'm disappointed they didn't mention anything about the rMBP. Reply

    Yeah, no kidding. I was hoping for Haswell so I could make up my mind on my next laptop... Reply
