09:24AM PDT - The live blog begins in 37 minutes, Josh is on photos, I'm on text

09:29AM PDT - Change of plans, Josh is going to be on the Surface Pro 3 handling text

09:29AM PDT - I'll be contributing images and text, let's see how this works

09:33AM PDT - 28 minutes to go

09:33AM PDT - Sorry for the mixup with initial post ordering, Josh tried to break the engine

09:34AM PDT - Oops. I'll be on text, hi everybody.

09:37AM PDT - Josh is experimenting with different kickstand positions

09:38AM PDT - Josh on the Surface Pro 3: this is totally viable I think

09:38AM PDT - WiFi is ok: http://www.speedtest.net/my-result/3538576875

09:39AM PDT - This is turning into our Surface Pro 3 review

09:40AM PDT - Back to the Mac

09:43AM PDT - If it hasn't been said enough by now, WWDC is definitely going to be a software show this time around

09:44AM PDT - Broadwell ULT parts won't be available until September timeframe, so it's too early for an official rMBA release

09:45AM PDT - It's too early for iPhone 6, too early for iPad Air next

09:46AM PDT - 15 minutes until showtime!

09:48AM PDT - We're both on text right now, for the most part it'll be Josh on text once the thing gets started

09:52AM PDT - 9 minutes until start time

09:52AM PDT - Anand here back on text, so can we talk about CarPlay integration with Ferrari and in general?

09:52AM PDT - The experience didn't look particularly Apple-like from the Geneva videos I saw

09:53AM PDT - I feel like getting into automotive without going all in becomes a major challenge

09:53AM PDT - But Apple doesn't strike me as the type of company to start building reference iOS platforms for auto makers

09:54AM PDT - Then again I felt strongly that Apple wouldn't build its own microprocessor architecture at one point

09:55AM PDT - Auto makers have proven that they don't understand user interfaces or UI performance

09:55AM PDT - And 5-year development cycles are a pain to deal with

09:55AM PDT - If Apple wants to deliver a truly differentiated experience there, I feel like there needs to either be a hardware play or a strict set of requirements

09:56AM PDT - 5 minutes until we start

10:01AM PDT - Lights dimming, audience clapping

10:01AM PDT - We're a-go

    I still don't know who is on text...

    Oh I've got it, Josh is on text. Looks like you need a Macbook Air, I hope they mention a next gen Macbook Air.

    Don't get your hopes up - isn't this conference normally all about the software? (the clue is in the title!)

    LoL they made Metal and new programming language just for continue installing 1GB RAM in their devices)))

    This looks like it's going to be a GREAT release. Can't wait!

    I would be rather interested to see what an Apple infotainment system would look like. However, I think one of the most important aspects is definitely the human interface. How do we control it? I've found that controlling the head unit tends to be painful, tedious and all-around cumbersome. For example, if I want to scroll through a large list, I need something more like a mouse wheel that I can scroll quickly. While I'm scrolling quickly, all I want to see on the screen is the first letter of the current entry (e.g. 'M' for "Music"). We also need to get rid of this ancient poke-to-move navigation system. I have MyFord Touch in my car, but I almost never use the navigation, because it's too difficult to use quickly compared to my phone. Part of that is the speed (it takes some time to even come up) and having to poke to move around. So, when I'm just looking for a quicker route to get somewhere, I'd rather pull over and get out my phone.

    Those are good points. Whether we like it or not, Apple has become the technology world's design bureaux. A better car interface is what we all need right now. Almost every one I've ever tried, from my mum's humble Hyundai, my friend's Prius, to my brother's massive Jaguar (he's rich, I'm not!) has an utterly crap interface.

    97% satisfaction rating?? Come on, that's obviously a slanted stat in some way, nothing in the computer industry ever gets anywhere near that kind of consensus. It's too much like a Russian sham 'election', douchebag dictator gets 97% of the vote......
  • repoman27 - Monday, June 2, 2014 - link

    It's derived from studies such as those performed by ChangeWave Research which poll several hundred customers and ask them whether they would rate their overall satisfaction with their device as "Very Satisfied", "Somewhat Satisfied", "Somewhat Unsatisfied" or "Very Unsatisfied". When you total the first two groups for participants with devices running iOS 7, apparently you arrive at 97%.

    Customers vote with their dollars, and the results of the ballot are the respective market shares. This is more like asking people after they just voted how satisfied they are with the way they cast their vote.
  • Deelron - Monday, June 2, 2014 - link

    One quibble, the result of the ballot is most definitely not market share, many times cost is a much, much greater factor in market share then satisfaction (and sometimes it's a major factor in both). I'd suspect most consumers would be more satisfied with a luxury automobile if it cost the same as a moped.
