    Steve

    Just wants to mix things up so Apple isn't predictable... We can't always have new product Tuesdays.

    My bet is we will see a speed bump before WWDC, Steve likes his sunrises, a speed bump isn't going to be good enough.

    Woah.

    Apple just f'ing OWNS this space. The few non-Apple systems you might see this time next year will be like those folks who owned horse-drawn buggies for YEARS after automobiles started appearing. It's that level of analogy.

    NAB started Sunday

    NAB started today that is why they announced it. Apple has one of the biggest booths this year and is certainly one of the major talk of the show as they have been the last few years
