Continue reading the live-blog:
9:15AM Thinking about the coffee im drinking, waiting
9:21AM Growing more impatient by the minute, anticipation always kills me
9:27AM Crowd is growing. When are they going to let us in???
9:29AM Downloading some new Pee Monkey trial on my iphone, thanks free WiFi
9:31AM Overheard “I hope they make a hybrid imac/ipod” … Unlikely
9:36AM Snapped some pics of apple enthusiasts
9:39AM WOAH, just shook hands with Joel
Dennis Denihey, co-creator of the ipod nano. Thats a golden handshake
9:45AM Almost show time. Its actually quite hot today – should’ve worn shorts
9:48AM Wish I had a closer seat, my head is pointing left toward the stage – not optimal. Wasn’t necessary to bring my listen-up, its loud in here. Apple appears to wanna blow the worlds ear drums
9:51AM My neck is going to kill after this. On another note, I see more turtlenecks around me than usual
9:56AM On stage there is a big Apple logo, couple of iMacs (same ‘ol silver ones – dont expect any imac news)
9:57AM Im guessing some new itunes software? maybe they removed the genius bar?
9:59AM “turn off all mobile devices. Thank you.” -announcer … umm, I can’t, im live blogging this event
10:02AM Steve is on stage. People are clapping. whistling. this is exciting
10:06AM “In a little over two years, we’ve sold 30 million iPhones.”
10:08AM NEW IPHONE VERSION! Hopefully with mms “Today we have something new for iPhone and iPod touch owners — iPhone OS 3.1.” Win
10:11AM OOoooooh New rintones! “The second thing we’re adding is ringtones” “we’ll have over 30,000 ringtones, and they’ll be sold for a breakthrough price for ringtones, at $1.29″ Breakthrough might be $.10 IMO – try harder jobs
10:12AM “3.1 is free, and it’s available today.”
10:14AM “Today we’re introducing iTunes 9” — great for ipod users, not big news for zune owners
10:16AM “I want to cover a few features of 9. First off, we’re applying Genius to another area. People have submitted over 27m libraries. Over 54b songs. The Genius database has gotten smarter and smarter. They’ve enabled us to make Genius playlists. Well, we’re applying that same tech to something new called Genius Mixes.” Im unimpressed, genius is a dead end – give it up
10:19AM Finally something not worthless: “The biggest thing we’re doing is allowing you to manage your apps in iTunes.”
