Due to the intimate setting of the press conference today, Apple elected to have a question and answer session with the attendees. Here are some of the notes of interest from that Q/A. For more complete coverage, please see sites with live updates from the event. Editor's Note: Q/A is paraphrased for brevity and readability

Q: Why aren't you participating in the "Intel Inside" sticker program?
A: We like our own stickers better. We love Intel, and we feel most people know that we use Intel processors. We'd rather customers not have to peel stuff off.

Q: What about the Mac Mini?
A: The Mac Mini is being refreshed today with faster processors.

Q: What about Apple TV?
A: Nothing about Apple TV today, but we'll have news regarding it soon.

Q: You have Multitouch on the iPhone. What about on the Mac?
A: It doesn't make a lot of sense right now on the Mac. We'd classify that as a research project.

Such an under used word. The apple TV announcement must be soon because surely this will put a lot of people off from buying it.

iWork, iLife, Mac updates all very nice.

The QA must have thrown everyone totally off guard, because those questions were L.A.M.E. I bet the QA is the reason MR wasn't invited. You know what we want to ask, and none of those questions would be in any of our top 25 lists. Weak.

The Mac Mini Lives!!!

Now maybe I can convince my school to invest. The new iMac and software suites are fantastic. Bravo Apple.:apple:

Bluetooth Keyboard

Anyone have any idea why the new Bluetooth keyboard has less keys than the wired keyboard.

Edit: never mind, guess the whole wireless thing makes having a wide, full-sized keyboard on your lap impractical.

Sorry, but that Mac mini price is ridiculous.

A 5 minute Q&A session and a tenth of it was wasted with such probing questions such as why no Intel stickers?

Nothing about the Mac Pro, Cinema Displays or how Leopard's progressing. I thought the people in there were supposed to journalists!

I am not disappointed, which, as an Englishman, obviously makes me disappointed.

So i win, and Apple wins. Huzzah.
