A large number of people will be amazed and thrilled by what is presented.

An even larger number of people will bitch and moan about what was NOT presented.

A large number of people will complain that Tim Cook is not as good as what's-his-name was.

I know more, but i'm not telling...

Wow! I don't know where you get these.

People will not even care when Scott Forstall takes the stage at WWDC 2013 to reveal that he is the new Apple CEO replacing Tim Cook, and unveils the iTV, the iWatch, the MacBook Air/Pro Fusion, the iPhone 6 nano, the iPod Shuffle with the retina display and the new Mac Pro with 300 cores and 12 video cards.

Mark my words.

Surely.....

my bet is for a new Mac Pro. But I recognize, that will be hard to get as I had visualized it: Same form factor, better I/O options, more RAM available, better graphics support.....

Not always new is the best. But I suppose all must wait and see. Hopefully, Apple can give us a good suprise in June....

Anything we'd expect to see at WWDC, including a new Mac Pro, will be AWOL. Apple has become synonymous with disappointment

Other way around:
Rumour sites kick the expectations sky high. The logical consequence is disappointment.

Apple just say the minimum:
iOS 7 and OS X 10.9

All other expectations are made here.

That's a good way to think about the WWDC, one I will try to take to heart.

An upgrade of current Macs to include a Haswell processor would be welcome. It's been one year since (most of) the laptops received an upgrade. I have my cross fingers that Haswell MacBooks will be released during the WWDC (as I would be in the U.S. in June, I will benefit from that), but I don't keep my expectations high, because I know it's unlikely that any of them is unveiled during the event...

Apple, realizing that the market for PCs is drying up, and that there is little more that can be done to upgrade OS X, will announce that they're going to expand Macintosh market penetration by re-licensing the Mac operating system to clone makers.

Steve Ballmer's head immediately explodes.

I think it's very much going to follow the format of last year.

-Tim Cook takes the stage.
-Updates on retail, App Store, iTunes and iBooks.
-Phil Schiller introduced modestly spec-bumped MacBook Airs, MBPs and maybe Retina MBPs.
-Mac freakin' Pro. Available next month. Made in USA.
-Great hardware deserves great software (blah, blah, blah).
-Craig Federhigi introduces OS X 10.9. Available in late Summer (more vague than setting an actual month because of the OS X teams work on iOS 7).
-Craig stays on stage to debut iOS 7 with new features, including all the rumoured features (redesign, etc.). Also includes lots of improvements for Apple TV including an App Store. New apps debuting today including one from The CW (like what was, I think prematurely, announced last week) and other content partners. iOS 7 is available in the Autumn/Fall. Beta to developers today.
-Tim Cook returns to the stage. Thank you for coming, have a great week (blah, blah, blah).

The end.
