Excited about what's being announced? Disappointed? Share it!
IM SO EXCITED
I'm using The Verge liveblog, per digg.com's suggestion.
OMG PEOPLE ARE IN LINE!
"And we're in our seats. And they are so so comfy."
ZOMG can you guys imagine how comfy the seats are??!
I'm using all live blogs at once, per elite peoples' suggestion.
Yea, one def isn't enough. Too slow/might miss something. I need to upgrade my computer so it doesn't crash from all the liveblogging.
I listed my iPhone 4 on Amazon last night for $250 and it sold in less than an hour. If iPhone 5 doesn't ship by Friday I'm going to feel like a delinquent (I'll have to use an old BlackBerry!).
Do you guys like reverse chron or chron liveblogs?
Is there a live blog aggregator (LBA) so we can constantly refresh just one web page? Always be refreshing.
IMHO the only keys that matter are Command and R today.
Fresh data at the top of the page is my squeeze.
"Ladies and gentlemen, we'll begin shortly. Please switch devices to silent mode."
I'm going to switch my phone to silent mode too
What if the new phone has brain-integration so you don't need silent mode?!?
Retail updates... BORING! NOT SHINY!
can we buy some of that local limestone though?
Yea, true. I need some. Let's go to the Apple store and ask where they get their limestone.
No one tell Silicon Valley that Tim Cook has an MBA.
The Gizmodo liveblog is the worst thing I've ever seen. There are like 0 hot pics.
I'll do 10 pushups right now if they announce retina Macbook Air
5 pushups, just had chinese food.
blah blah blah why won't they just get to the money shot
I'm already disappointed. I'm switching to Android (lol jk).
@alex what's the play here? do we sell on Amazon if phones are available within 7 days?
zomg so much pressure
@alex we haven't even discussed iPad. If they announce mini...do you sell old? Or do we need both? I think we need both...
given sebastian's wall strategy, imo you need >3
I NEED ALL THE PADS
@time MOAR IPHONE ANNOUNCEMENTS NOW PLS
ok, amazon buyback page is up. $430 trade-in value.
vibrant app ecosystem! that's you @rob. so vibrant.
I can hear his Alabaman accent from China Basin.
NEXT LEVEL, HUGE LEAP
"Now today we're taking it to the next level. Making a huge leap."
LUV U PHIL
plz plz Find my Friend upgrade plz plz
"Ha! It rose up out of the stage."
It would be awesome if when you buy it @ the Apple Store it rises up out of the floor.
zomg it's an iphone5!!!!
love the new default background. most important feature.
the iPhone4S was revolutionary because it "just worked." The iphone5 is revolutionary because it's "just longer."
Please have an aluminum back!
Passbook looks cool. you can see it in 2nd row on right side
18% thinner. Sexy.
CAN THEY GET ANY THINNERZ????
Damn, my phone feels 20% heavier now
@Alex are you ready to Uber to the Apple Store if it's available now?
@developers, get to work: 1136 x 640
@pat, I think Ken is already there.
"It's because of your hand. It should fit there. That's how we designed the iPhone 5."
GUYS they built it FOR OUR HANDS!
Is the phone actually bigger? Or just the screen?
It looks bigger. SO MANY ROWZ
WHERE IS THE STYLUS
my calendar can finally show more events!!!
SO MANY EVENTS SHOWN ON SCREEN
Phil is taking swim lessons? d35lb3dl296zwu.cloudfront.net
GUYS SO MANY DRUMS
For an SVP, phil's really not that busy. Good for him.
@alex yea agreed re: phil. good for him
"When I say this display looks better, it really does look better."
HE WASN'T JOKING!
My iPhone feels 44% less saturated
Looks like we're getting LTE, which means a different icon in the top left of the screen!
@Rob, can you weigh in on the response from the "ecosystem"?
"if you're antenna isn't dynamic, you're fucking out" - kenny powers
BIGGER APPZ MEAN MORE APPZ >>> $$$$
iPhone 5 is making its worldwide debut and folks in the office are discussing conflict in Libya. GUYZ, FOCUS!
A6 chip...does this mean apple is buying audi finally?
Oh cool, you can play games on it.
"We paid chinese children $100,000 to move our game into the top 10!"
Do you think this developer even knows he's on stage?
Rear view mirrors!
"Real tracks, real cars, real people you can play against anytime you like."
I guess they are buying Audi?
@alex not a good sign: "This is Real Racing 3 for the powerful new iPhone." It's coming later this year.
Is it high res enough to see RIMM in the rear view mirrors?
apple event = debut of new racing game these days.
Are these hours or minutes? d35lb3dl296zwu.cloudfront.net
@alex can we get Jim involved in the camera conversation?
Sapphire crystal (for the ladies).
"Sapphire is renowned for being hard and crystal clear."
@callie can you weigh in on the importance of sapphire crystals for women?
Can't wait to make use of those 225 standby hours.
so will this phone last through the day for me?
@alex if it does you're doing something wrong
"Here's some fun you can have. That's not two people. I'll leave it to fans to figure out how we did this."
GUYS LOOK AT THE FUN!
These guys have been prank calling John Appleseed for the last 5 years.
"The speaker has a 5-magnet transducer. That's three more magnets in your transducer. Each one a mystery." — Engadget
"One thing Apple has an uncanny ability to do is downsize components. It is an impressive feat." — The Verge
Are all the tech reporters stoned?
SO happy apple didn't just use micro usb. that would've been way too easy.
I wish they had branded the adapter THOR.
SCOTT FORSTALL *SWOOOOON*
Surprised they included this shot in the presentation. Feels un-Apple. d35lb3dl296zwu.cloudfront.net
Alex, can we go there and try to find Scott when I'm in SF?
not a big fan of that restaurant
Going to have to buy new raw denim to fit new iPhone.
@pat such an important point. all of my jeans are now obsolete.
GREAT TO BE HERE. THANKS FOR INVITE.
Jeans need to have this marked clearly
Back at the mothership: store.apple.com
Isn't that in TOS?
@pat thank god they got rid of sticky notes.
@jake thank god.
@alex if we had built that loyalty card thing we'd been up on stage right now.
All of your least favorite brands, in one place: d35lb3dl296zwu.cloudfront.net
This is cool: d35lb3dl296zwu.cloudfront.net
Thanks for the invite PT
"You can send an SMS back if you can't answer a call" -- awesome
@geoff welcome to the finest liveblog.
Can Siri get you a date?
ahem. what's going on in this chat?
really thought we were going to get blue this time
The moment of truth.
Phil should unbutton that top button.
"Jony Ive is in a large, white room." << is he okay?
I'm starting to think he's computer generated.
Or he's held prisoner in a room somewhere in the Middle East.
I heard he stormed an embassy last night.
Why does Pitchfork.com look like dezeen?
Jonathan Ive video watching party in my apartment tonight!
I want to hire him to talk about how well designed my wardrobe is.
Have they announced what material the back is made from? d35lb3dl296zwu.cloudfront.net
@kyle I'd pay for that.
@pat I heard it's Sapphire Crystal
@pat recycled stealth bombers
He can see into our souls.
Ive looks worried. d35lb3dl296zwu.cloudfront.net
@kyle @jake Sapphire Crystal stealth bombers?! WANT
Jonathan Ive, being interviewed while riding a dirt bike.
"I'm going to make sweet love to this phone." — The Verge reporters need to tone it down a bit.
Can Siri get you a date?
No, she prevents you from getting them
Jake Levine @jrlevine
Jonathan Ive video watching party in my apartment tonight!
This will not end well
Same price for the iPhone 4S. $199 $299, $399.
pre-order this friday
Ive's gaze can penetrate 4 inches of solid, brushed, anodized aluminum.
Has anyone ever needed > 32gb?
clearing my calendar for this Friday.
would prefer to order through siri
"This is the biggest thing to happen to iPhone since the iPhone."
@callie I guess I'll be single forever.
This guy looks drunk d35lb3dl296zwu.cloudfront.net
I wonder how the person who bought my iPhone 4 last night for $250 feels now that they're "free".
"One more thing. This phone ships with news.me, Digg, and Modern War pre-installed." - Tim Cook
I always find myself judging the demo'd iTunes library. Coldplay? Really?
I'm judging your judgment — why didn't you make fun of Maroon 5?
@kyle so much album art. (Also, people still use iTunes?)
place your bets: is "one more thing" gone forever?
@alex I'm going to be in SF on 9/21. Might need to get it shipped to you.
iTunes and NYC MTA: all Helvetica, all day.
@rob I think One More Thing is gone...
Who would win in a fight? Jonathan Ive or the Boss at age 62?
ive, even if he's digital
iPod update... I want a watch.
i just bought a pebble though! yargh
"But we don't do this just for the numbers. We love music."
"...the music that a billion US dollars makes when you dive into it"
"First we want to give it a large display. Give it nice controls. Make it thin and light. And of course, the Lightning connector."
YOU THOUGHT THEY'D FORGET THE LIGHTNING????
So. Much. Album. Art. Ugh.
ooooh GPS would make this a killer exercise device.
No GPS = Worse than iPhone for running.
Nike+ on a nano! Boom.
Need GPS. Fuck those chips you put in your shoes.
@pat Nike+ is on my current (old) Nano.
Camera would be super coool......
"And we're building fitness and pedometer right in." — That's kinda neat. But how will I know where Pat is going for a jog???
@kyle oops. I thought this meant GPS on the Nano. Bummer.
@jake Fear not. I'll have an intern run alongside me holding the iPhone 5.
man — kinda wish I could lose the phone and just get a touch.
"175,000 game and entertainment apps." Saturated.
"The character onscreen is reacting to the player's actions. Pretty funny stuff. Now being tickled... and chased. Stuff is getting weird."
"The Ninja is based on research from Oxford"
Where did you get your research for Modern War?
@rob found our research for Digg in some scrolls near the Dead Sea.
THEY REINVENTED WRIST STRAPS
@jake I just want an iPod Touch. It has the sapphire crystal.
If you collect enough Sapphire Crystals you can turn them in at the Merchant for a new sword.
Wrist straps could NOT be dorkier
"Now I want to turn our attention to something else that's really important for music. And that's speakers."
callie: you don't even know, wrist straps are the future!!
@callie the whole team just left to go buy wrist straps now that they're "in"
THANK GOD WE WORK IN MEATPACKING
EARPOD VIDEO PARTY @ MY APARTMENT TONIGHT AFTER THE JONATHAN IVE VIDEO PARTY
Jony Ive: "Making earphones that fit for everyone would be like making shoes that are the same size that fit everyone's feet. But that's what we've tried to do."
Ear Pods now play bass as well as treble!
The new EarPods are optimized for Cold Play.
"We were so excited we created an ad." That's what I do when I get excited.
EarPod concept art: artsjournal.com
ear pods are really hard to design for everyones' ears. so we designed them for jony ive's instead.
@pat iPhone unboxing @ Gree on 9/21
plz reserve a conf room. preferably static-free.
Grunge just died, guys.
@jake it's on. Reserved a conference room.
EarPods are the new black.
@jake we'll order locally roasted coffee from our iPhone 5s and pay with Passbook.
Okay, so now we all just refresh store.apple.com?
Might head to Apple store to get in line for EarPods.
@kyle command + R is so refreshing.
50% of the line will be TaskRabbits
16GB iPad 2 is the same price as the new 64GB iPod Touch ($399).
Taskrabbit is SUCH a good deal
i don't understand why i don't have this new phone yet?
We should hire TaskRabbits to sit in our chairs at work and code/build/analyze while we wait in line. We'll get our EarPods even soon.
@pat by code/build/analyze do you mean participate in a group chat room and refresh store.apple.com?
@jake that's exactly what I meant (sent by Pat's TaskRabbit).
@alex price on amazon is coming down already
i think i can hear the foo fighters from here
@alex Rob and I are going ahead with Amazon. We may use the Digg phones in the 2 day difference. $400 vs. $280 is meaningful.
Branch pro tip: disable email notifications for when "there’s a post in a branch I subscribed to" and "There’s a post in a branch I joined or started." Inbox is flooded.
Dial *629# to find out how much money you're going to give Apple on Friday.
The big winner today is Branch. Pretty solid experience.
lightning to 30 pin adapter is $29?!?! store.apple.com
@alex I know, right. I'm buying 10 and to sell on gazelle.
EarPods look cool but who else is holding out for the next gen EyePods that rest comfortably inside — and stay inside — a variety of eyeballs? You'll never have to look at your iPhone again.
Share it with friends!
Thanks for your feedback! Team Branch
