    Jim Dalrymple, a 20 year Apple observer, owner of TheLoop and well known "insider" of Apple info, has this to say:

    Add this to the fact Apple is building the white tower of power that "is protected by 'scads' of security people" at the same location the Mac debuted 30 years ago and we've got the making of more than just a normal keynote.

    Come on people...

    It's the same thing every time we have one of these....

    Everyone gets all spun up and Apple Logos appear in their eyes....We make ludicrous posts about how Apple is the greatest and we can't wait to stand in line at 3 am to purchase it....

    And then the Keynote happens and we will come back and say what an awful update that was and how underwhelmed we are by the newest Apple offerings....Then we may buy it...We may preorder it but only because the battery life sucks on the 6 month old 5S we currently have....

    This is repeated Ad Infinitum....

    That being said....So who's bringing Starbucks and bagels to the Mall of Ga line this year??

    I really can't buy into the hype to this extent. Maybe I'm a Debbie downer, but it is just a phone.

    I'll evaluate the function, wait until after the hoopla dies down and potentially get one, if in my opinion there is enough incremental functionality over the 5s.

    What do you expect, he's become a fat cat off of Apple. Like every other Apple event this represents big bucks to all who derive their living from Apple stuff. :)

    Very true.. he's also a bit of an Apple "fanboy" in that he prints mostly positive things. However, his reputation is also on the line so if something special doesn't come out.. his rep will take a hit for such dramatic comments.

    The hype machine in full effect! I mean, sometimes its in these peoples best interests to rev up the hype machine for their own ends. Not saying that this fella is doing that specifically, but hype is a precious commodity these days. Business thrives on it anymore.

    The number of people being invited and a whole build up at a location that hasn't been used in quite a while for anything by Apple (and the last time it was for one of their biggest events even to this day). Seems like that's at least a fair amount of difference. It's not to say that it means something truly important/significant, but it is to say that it's different.

    I just heard him on a live podcast a couple of days ago and he said NO WAY Apple is going to use NFC.

    So I would say he has very little inside information.

    And also when you contract 60 million phones to be built, you better really hype it and so to create all the mystery you can about an event with a white tower.

    Seriously....

    iPad Pro........not a chance. That will get its own event. I'm going to guess it shows up at the October iPad event maybe with Yosemite.

    U2 might appear but I'd think it would be on the inside stage where the ~2,000 people all can see them.

    I'm betting on a "house" where they can demo HomeKit. :)

    All hard to see from Florida, but I will take you word for it. I have seen so many now and the real craziness has yet to start!

    Must be a very exciting keynote then.
    A news channel said something about apple setting the date for its big day.
    Here's to hope, even though it's a dangerous thing.

    The bigger the hype, the bigger the disappointment.
