I am not at all excited about this and I won't be watching or following it. I'll probably just view Dan's 7 min video and then wait for reviews, especially about the display.

If they didn't have a touch bar on the MBP, I would probably have run out to get a 13" Intel MBP before Apple stops selling them. The M1 display causes me headaches.

How about a spoiler-free link to the video afterwards, for people who live where the event is so early, even the Kookaburras would be sleeping through it???

I think they usually do that here. The spoiler free link is posted on the morning of the event. I could be imagining it though.

They definitely used to, but I don't think they did it at least for this year's iPhones. Or at least I had a quick look the day before the event, and couldn't find one.

I think this event should actually be Apple's most interesting one in the last 5 years.

I think the prototype car that Foxconn just shipped this week is actually the Apple Car prototype, to be revealed during this event. I don't think Foxconn is investing in a giant car factory in the mid-western US just for fun. Foxconn doesn't have any brand cache - there's no reason Foxconn would expect people to line up for a car under their own brand, particularly within the US. But if it's an Apple Car... that makes a lot more sense for Foxconn to have their factory in the US.

If they're hiring the people who will be involved with assembly now, that means details about the car will rapidly leak out. So now is the time to reveal the car.

Separately, I think Apple has all the pieces in place to deliver the killer app of VR - being able to meet friends/family far away in a shared virtual space.

Then Blender is also an interesting development - it could foreshadow more interesting software and maybe hardware for the Macs.

headaches? It is the same display technology, so not seeing how that should impact you at all. Have you checked your color profile? some people don't like True Tone and Night Shift, you could turn those off. Other than that, I'd love to hear your reasoning behind the headaches from display.

I just got a 13 MPB M1. It is the best computer I ever used. I also like the Touch Bar, going to miss it if they discontinue. I really don't understand the whining from some people, because it can be configured to be just the function keys like it wasn't there. Maybe I'm simple, but extra features, especially ones you don't have to use = good

If only the hype was mostly continued excitement after a string of home runs, like in the 00’s. Instead part of the excitement is because Apple might be fixing the minimalism mistakes of the last 5 years. :p

I didn't check color profile, but I did turn off true tone and night shift and it didn't help. There are 2 other theories floating around -- one related to dithering and the other is a 60 Hz flicker noted by notebookcheck.

It's great that it's working out for you. Not everyone is the same and there's no need to put them down because of their preferences.
