Oh my dear lord. I'm just about as worked up over this as I am Venezuela running out or toilet paper.
Mavericks is apparently some surfer paradise in California. They are embarking on a new series apparently to be cool places in California. I suppose we should anticipate "Big Bear" "Joshua Tree" and "Yosemite." They'll probably skip "Death Valley."
Where can I watch the unveiling of the new Macbook Pros?
There are no new Macbook Pros. The are new Macbook Air laptops and new Mac Pro desktops.
R5, I vote for LaBrea Tar Pits.
No MBP's?? They're WAY overdo for a refresh!
Perhaps the biggest news is buried. iPhones will now have a remote kill switch ("Activation Lock") to deter theft. The phone can be rendered inoperable remotely if it is stolen. We currently can wipe off data remotely, but this new feature will allow us to turn the phone into a brick. Until they figure out how to break in.
Oh--And we can now turn Siri into a man with a realistic voice.
GOP, "See they named it after us."
Apple: Don't flatter yourself, losers.
I don't like some of the new iOS graphics. They've turned all the icons flat. Instead of appearing to be floating in the sky, the envelope symbolizing mail is now on a plain blue background. The phone logo no longer has the gradations that make it appear to be shiny and three-dimensional--Just flat green. Anything that looks real (the gears in settings, the shelves in iBooks and Newsstand) has been made abstract.
I do like the thinner typeface.
And they promise smarter multitasking (through background updating based on your use patterns) and a "control center" which, like Android, brings major setting switches to the screen with a swipe from anywhere, even the lock screen. Still no ability to split the screen between two active apps.
Can someone shut the nitwits up who seem to be crapping themselves to post about "relevant" and "contemporary" topics? It looks like a bunch of 22 year olds have gotten out of class and have nothing to do but shave their flabby asses and pretend they're remaking THE STRAWBERRY STATEMENT while lying on a basement couch.
R15 - dear jesus I hope you were trying to ironic.
I'll take things said by Gwyneth Paltrow after a junk food binge for $400, Alex.

On such a small screen, I'm not sure how or why this would be desirable. Especially given that iOS apps are typically written to a predictable, set resolution expectation... suddenly having half the screen gone would render most apps unusable.
Never mind, I was thinking iOS7, not OS X
I was talking about iOS7. You're right that an iPhone is too small, but an iPad isn't.
I thought it was going to be Lynx. Why did apple change it?
The new iOS7 will speed up your iPhone, r23. I'm a beta tester and developer, and I know you will love it!

I love the new song, "Strawbery Bubblegum" from Justin Timberlake!
Also, Siri got a polished new interface and it goes after Google Now with card-based UI and new services to provide answers to your questions (Twitter, Wikipedia and Bing, take that Google). She can also control your iDevice (increase brightness, turn on Bluetooth) and it offers a new, more life-like voice (both female and male) for English, French and German.
