    Well let's discuss what's being discussed. Starts in an hour (10PST). What are you hoping to hear?

    Supposedly the focus is going to be the new iPhone OS but obviously everyone is expecting to hear the announcment of the new iPhone, potentially the iPhone being available for different carriers, etc.

    What site are you following?

    So far mac rumors is saying:

    - iPhone OS 4 for iPad due this fall
    - iBooks: Was iPad only, now coming to iPhone, iPod Touch. Wirelessly syncs current page, bookmarks. buy once, read anywhere.
    - Folders. Drag apps on top of each other on homepage and it will create a folder. Folder then appears as icon, can be put in dock etc.

    I love my iPad but some people need to get a life:

    10:04AM "It is magical, I know it because I got this email: I was sitting in a café with my iPad, and it got a girl interested in me!." "So there's proof." Huge cheers.

    According to one blog, during the Farmville announcment someone in the audience yelled "WHAT THE F*CK?!?"

    Or we're actually following the conference. My only comment? I wish the IT world would grow up and stop wearing jeans and sneakers all the time - Steve looks like an idiot. Too many Americans stop maturing in high school or college...

    I just thought people would discuss or predict what they were hoping to hear about etc. :(

    That's his look I guess, his little gimmick.

    HD video recording and multitasking are the two things that really interested me. Netflix on the iPhone will be pretty cool when I'm bored and need something to watch. Other than that, nothing too exciting. The gyroscope could be cool. Not really sure I want a full movement controller when the screen will be moving with it.

    Video chat is interesting, but it will be better when it supports 3G/4G.

    I didn't hear anything that was interesting enough for me to switch to the Nation's Worst Network.

    I'd never switch off a network with simultaneous voice/data for one with barbaric CDMA technology. Verizon needs to catch up with the rest of the globe.

    We must live in two different worlds. I don't know anyone who doesn't live in jeans and sneakers.... Unless it's the men in uniform at the nearby army base. And this us coming from a grandmother not a teenager :)

    Simultaneous voice and data ONLY if you can actually get a signal. ATT is the biggest piece of junk here where I live...within an hour and a half in all directions, no ATT signal.

    I'm just a young fogey. At work we went dress casual a few years back, and I still come in wearing a jacket and tie, even on Friday when jeans are allowed.

    There's a hilarious film from the 70s starring Martin Mull, Tuesday Weld, and Sally Kellerman called "Serial." In a scene where Kellerman is hiring a new maid, and tells the woman she doesn't want her to wear a maid's uniform, only regular clothes. The maid says "So, you want it to look like I'm your friend who stopped by to chat, and I just happen to be cleaning your house?" "...exactly."

    That seems to be the way the world's going - everyone wants to look like they were doing something else, and just happened to stop in and hang around the office for 8 hours.

    I didn't like a lot of what I heard about iOS4 - it's looking like we're going to see a reduction in battery life running it, and the next generation iPad will likely do no better than your typical laptop. We'll see.

    The new display, with 326 pixels per inch, sounds impressive.

    I agree epb. Where it bothers me the most, and sorry to get off topic but the conference is over so I don't see this thread going anywhere, is nice restaurants. I'm only 29 but what happened to people that had respect for a nice restaurant?

    Wife and I go out to a restaurant that is about 200 bucks for the two of us with no alcohol and there is some idiot sitting two tables away in shorts, a polo, and a hat. Most people are in at least dress shirts and pants, with a decent majority of us in suit jackets and ties, and this bozo gets let in.

    Not to mention we are going to have to see ads in almost every app probably now. And while technically the savings should be passed on to the consumer, I have a feeling greedy app makers will just pocket the money for the app at the same price AND the ad money. Hell some of them already charge money for the same app between the iPad and iPhone which is BS...and I don't even own an iPhone and I think that's pretty sad...especially with it's basically just a better rendered version with no other improvements.

    From the first time Apple started Steve always wore jeans and was casual at conferences Personally I don't see why it matters He can wear what he likes he owns the largest It company in USA and frankly his stock holders don't care either.
