    Could be Apple have diversified into the aeronautical industry!
    The iPlane or Plane Pro.

    Could be the long rumored iPhone Nano...

    It's how they get round the fingermarks on touchscreen issue. From Tuesday we'll all be using MultiBreath™

    I'm just hoping it's nothing along the lines of "Welcome to the Social". That would be seriously rubbish.

    If this is the theme this year then it looks like wireless is the main product announcements. Unless they want to hide any reference to multi-touch.

    They're skipping the whole touchscreen/tablet thing and moving straight to 3D holograms that allow you to type, drag/drop and everything else by moving your hands and fingers around inside the hologram.

    agreed, but thats why i am very very interested in the typeface. the thin (notably thin) typeface suggests something beyond just the obvious "wireless stuff" connotations of the wording. if that phrase was set in the normal Myriad Pro weight thats one thing, to me this says more than just that.

    but then again i am a designer and clearly have a fetishistic relationship with typography. so i may be wishfully thinking. :)
