"We've got a little more to show you"

So, iPad mini then. Probably a new Mac Mini to go with it and almost certainly a 13" retina macbook pro.
I'm betting still no iMac update...

I doubt we'll ever see a "not shit" iTunes release.

I just want them to fix iTunes Match/iCloud so that iTunes doesn't keep saying "iTunes Match has encountered a problem! Please sign out and sign back in" which then leaves me having to "Add this computer" again.

Also it's fucked up about half of my library with corrupted tracks*. Thanks Apple, you cunts.

* This includes albums I bought off iTunes Store in the first place. Though I re-downloaded all of NIN again as a test the other day and so far no "Oh you wanted to have more than 25% of this track sorry" moments, so maybe they're getting there.

Yeah, Match fucked up my library too, but I can't tell until I listen to a song and find out it is some shitty live version that Match decided was a better fit than the original I had in my library to start with.
Having to turn it off completely when I went over the track limit, rather than just not adding the extra songs to the Cloud was the last straw.

isn't that just an iPhone? And wouldn't it also be against their recent claims that the size of portable appliances is a patentable aspect?

Ah, they'll do whatever they can and at the moment there's nothing from Apple between phone and large tablet. Still, yet more fragmentation for app developers to contend with. I wouldn't like to by an iOS synth manufacturer at the moment, given they've all had a ballache getting apps that fit the iphone 1-4 and ipad screens alike without compromising the functionality of the UI. An extra two screen formats will cheer them immensely, I'm sure.

There's a pretty big gulf between the (small by smartphone standards) iPhone and the (large by tablet standards) iPad so something in between is hardly ridiculous. The Nexus 7 et al have proved that there's a market for something around 7" so it's not a massive surprise Apple are looking to fill that gap. Personally I'm only surprised it's taken them this long.

I've no idea about the patent implications at all; beyond assuming that if it's a ridiculous thing to say then yeah, they've probably done it.

So...

New 13" Retina Macbook Pro - Very nice, but I get my laptop from work. I'll most likely get one next time my lease is up, unless the Air has gone retina by then. I'm not going to spend my own cash on one.

New Mac Mini - seems ok, nice enough upgrade but i'm not interested in Mac Mini's, never have been.

New iMac - Speed bump and new shape, no optical drive and SSD hybrid hard disk option. Same resolution and screen size as my current iMac, I don't need the extra speed and don't give a shit how heavy it is or how thin the back is. It sits on my desk and never moves... I am interested in how well supported a hybrid drive is within Mountain Lion, there was talk of some intelligent app shifting. If that works properly I might do that to my current iMac, but I can't see any reason to upgrade, my current machine is plenty fast enough.

New iPad - Speed bump, lightning connector, but otherwise same as the 3rd gen iPad. Nah, not enough to upgrade for me, especially with all the connector business to deal with (I don't have an iPhone 5)

New iPad Mini - Mildly interested for using on the commute, but if I was to get one i'd get the retina version which will no doubt be released in 6 months. Non-retina is a bit crap really, and it is pricey.

Apparently Zynga waited until this was happening to use the cover to "fire over 100 people."

After peering at specs, I can't see why anyone would get one of these over the Nexus 7 - with perhaps the exception of some serious app tie-in or for some reason desperately desiring mobile Internet but without a phone they can turn into a hotspot. It's £110 more!
