    "Wish we could say more" translated into "more" iPhone - bigger iPhones. So logically "It's been too long" means that they're going to make one of their products much shorter.

    My money is on a revolutionary new set of Earpods with a cable that's just 7mm long.

    Agreed. I think the Apple TV is the longest Apple hardware to go without an update.

    "It's been way too long....since Apple last offered matte display option on macs! Hopefully they will be answering my feedback.

    Once you go matte, you never go back! :D

    It took them a long time to add Retina displays to some of the Macs, most likely MacBook Air and iMac.

    Lets see how many rumours are met with disappointment.
    I somehow doubt we will see a retina iMac.

    Bring back the rainbow logo!!!!! That would be an awesome throwback to have the logo outlined with the rainbow like the invite.

    Maybe then I can stop slapping the decals on my devices.

    It's only 38 days since the last keynote; not that long!

    Nice - a very clear message that there will be an update to a product that hasn't been updated in some time.

    Speculate as to which Mac that will be...

    But it also shifts the focus a little from iPads.
    Perhaps there won't be an iPad update?
    Perhaps this will all be about Mac and OSX...

    The colours of the implied apple logo mean more retina stuff.

    Or maybe nothing.. whatever.. new stuff incoming !

    They are converting back to the colorful Apple logo. Notice the color in the invite? :D

    The spectrum makes me suspect iPod announcement... or something else with several color options.

    If they would just FIX the Apple TV software to work and not have a sucky UI, that would be a worthy new product.

    If Apple decides to push out a software update at 8:00pm PST again and tie up my TV for 30 minutes, that thing is going flying out into the street. YAY, a whole new stupid design, but we still make you go to the shows with nothing new on them FIRST, before you scroll to select a show that is actually new.
