Ok folks we're really slipping here/ Mere hours from the WWDC Keynote address and no rampant speculation, wish lists, etc? What gives? We've normally started a host of threads by now.

If Tech Crunch is right about an IOS 8 announcement my iPhone 4S will likely be left in the dust. Unfortunately my wife may not think that is a good enough reason to upgrade.

You want rampant speculation? No problem. Apple's going to start selling its own brand of beef in supermarkets.

I imagine that something will happen regarding the Beats acquisition. That aside, as always, I'm more excited about OS X improvements than I am about iOS ones. Speculation from others suggests that the next iteration of OS X is going to inherit some of the iOS 7 design details which is either going to look great or absolutely terrible (I'm one of the few that likes the iOS redesign). It looks like Spotlight might be more Alfred like which is awesome. I guess we'll find out in a few hours.

What I really want though is what they introduced with SL and then removed (for some reason) - the ability to see minimized windows in Mission Control. I'd also like to see hardware improvements to the MBA. I'm thinking well into the future here but I want what the MBA offers (battery life and weight) but with better guts. So, I keep wanting better internals even though I'm years away from getting a new Mac.

ROTFL. Why stop at beef, How about hot dogs as well. Shape 'em the right way and you could call them infinite loops.

I forgot about the Beats acquisition, I think you're right there will be something there, I'll be keeping an eye on the OS X revisions as well. My MacBook Pro is at the age where it might get left behind by some changes or the entire update. Not expecting that to happen but it's possible.

I'd br annoyed by that but it wouldn't be the reason I upgrade the hardware.

Oh, that joke was bad...well done.

The acquisition has been talked about by everyone except Apple and Beats (other than "it's been done") so I think many people want more information. Why Beats? What do they offer?

I want a leaner and faster OS X. Honestly, if all they did was go Snow Leopard on this next iteration (by improving upon Mavericks instead of gutting it), I'd be happy. As for Siri, something I know a lot of people want, it'd be nice if I didn't spend most of my time in a library or somewhere where talking to my computer would just look weird.

I suppose there's plenty of speculation about OS X 10.10 (my anal-retentive friend calls it 10.1…despite there being 10.1 some thirteen or fourteen years ago) and iOS 8. I also take it that my parents iPhone 4's (yes, iPhone 4) are out of the loop with the next iOS…and perhaps my Dad's iPad 2. I have the last remaining devices to run the next two or three iOS releases - until they're replaced.

I don't even want to know about the hardware limits of the next OS X release. Chances are, of the three Macs that I own, the newest will probably run it.

Is it 10AM PDT yet?

I haven't had a change to sit on Twitter and read through all of the rumors, so in one I'm actually totally going to be surprised by anything they announce. Another 52 mins to go and since they're live streaming it, I'll be on..

It might happen though I personally would probably not be a fan.

Were you thinking something akin to the Surface? Double duty as an iPad/laptop? That probably would not have the horsepower I would be looking for. The next device I buy will have to do a respectable job as my primary machine.

Well...I would really hate it if Apple did a "me too" product like the Surface. But I think that folks really would like a product that was a true "laptop replacement".

I think that Apple is heading in this direction with the rumors of a 12" "iPad Pro". But I think that the WWDC 2014 is supposed to be too early for something like this.

I could imagine a 12" iPad…though…doesn't Apple usually release new iPads with the Fall event? Or an entirely separate event from both WWDC and the Fall events?

Wow. How did I miss the iPad Pro rumors. I could get behind something that was a true laptop replacement. I would have to be be powerful enough to be my primary machine though.

There have been a few articles written on it. Many have been pointing to an October/December 2014 launch date (if it actually happens).

For me...if all Apple did was increase the display size to 12+"...then this would not be a ground-breaking product (just like a larger display iPhone wouldn't be anything super exciting). For me...an iPad Pro has to be more of a laptop replacement...then just increasing the display size...and calling it "Pro"!

Heck...with this logic...an iPhone with a larger display could be called an "iPhone Pro" (what the heck would that be or mean)?? Adding a larger display doesn't necessarily make something..."Pro-fessional"!
