    1) Glad to see the live streaming.  Thanks willrob.
    2) Today we are going to see:
    -Update on iOS 4.2 and a firm release date
    -Macbook Air with only SSD options and better battery life
    -iLife 2011
    -10.7 (Lion) sneak peak.  Lion WILL have an iOS layer that REPLACES dashboard but I am not sure it will be presented today.

    There will NOT be any surprises outside of this.

    I like this. I really like this. Suddenly we will have 300,00 iOS apps on the Mac and the iOS user base will increase by 35M units (3yr cumulative Mac sales)

    As long as we all have MagicTrackpads, since virtually all of the iOS apps require touch to function. I’m sure Apple already has a solution to this in the works.

    You can really see where notebooks are going with the new MacBook Air.  Like the aggressive pricing.  Available today!
