    Is anyone hoping/looking for anything?

    I know that if the rumor of the anti-glare screen on the iMac's is true, then I will be getting one. Should be able to get 80% or so of what I paid for my current one.

    I would love to see the new iPhone introduced, but not really expecting it.

    I would like an anti-glare screen too. That might be enough reason to replace my current puter. I'm can't wait to hear about iOS 6 and OS X Mountain Lion.

    I feel the same about the iPhone.

    Really interested in iOS 6, and what it has other than getting rid of Google Maps.

    I just wish maps were accessible whenever you don't have a data connection.

    Yeah, unless they have something, that's going to be where Google will have an advantage. But the stuff about Google having their own planes, and planes on contract for aerial shots etc is actually starting to creep me out.

    While Streetview was interesting, I'm glad it's gone.

    I believe they are, not the whole world at once, but in some pay-for apps, where you d/l an area you're in or going to. Sorry, don't have any recommendations, though.

    Same here. It's time to replace our 4 year old iMac and I've been impatiently waiting for the new models to arrive.

    The latest version of Navigon lets you pick which states to download to the device. I use it occasionally and it works well.

    I'm looking forward to hearing about the new features in iOS 6 as I plan to upgrade my iPhone 4 this year.

    Interesting rumor, that the original iPad won't get IOS6, but the 3GS will.

    Ok, you suck.;)


    I read that as well. Not sure I understand the logic. Maybe I should sell my original before the masses learn about this.

    Maybe the hardware can't handle driving all the pixels plus the new functionality? Or also possible the rumor is just wrong. We'll find out today for sure.

    Enjoy the show my man!

    Haven't been to a WWDC Keynote, but I have been in a war room for an iPhone launch. That was surprisingly calm ... :)

    Apple store is down as expected, but they aren't using a Post-It note look anymore. It's a large slightly crooked rounded square.

    I was interested in seeing the specs of the new Mac Mini, but it's apparently not getting announced this week. Not a big deal since I won't be getting one any time TOO soon, but that was something I was looking forward to reading about...

    Ditto...

    My phone is getting pathetic! :(

    Turn by turn directions would be a nice Android feature for iOS 6 to copy... :)

    I was wondering if you'd be there...
