    Today is the day folks. Should be an interesting speech. Some info has been already leaked about a new MacBook, iTunes movie rental and the iPhone SDK but with the Apple store down right now and the slogan "Something in the air" posted on the Apple website, it makes me wonder what SJ has up his sleeve. :D

    Congrats on the new iMac BTW. I want an updated AppleTV and new software for my iPhone.

    Engadget has live updates but their server is getting hit pretty hard.

    They even dropped the price on Apple TV to $229. Good move. Might have look at the Apple TV a little closer. :)

    If you are going to MacWorld, be careful. You have to sit at least 1/2 way back during the keynote to stay away from Steve's reality distortion field. He's a great salesman/showman.

    I agree. It looks great but I'm not sure I would like not having an optical drive. Makes it slightly inconvenient for some tasks. Steve Jobs tried to justify it but IMHO, his reasons were not quite good enough.

    Let's not forget that HD to Apple is 720p, not 1080p.

    True but my projector is 720p. :)

    Quite frankly 1080p looks stunning but the cost premium isn't necessarily worth it vs 720p or 1080i.
