Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference begins today and as is customary, all eyes are on the keynote presentation. Tim Cook will take the stage and give us a hint of what's in store over the next few months. Anticipated mentions are iOS 6 and a closer look at Mountain Lion. Speculation is bigger than ever on expected announcements. They include; an SDK for the Apple TV - to allow devs to write 3rd party apps, Facebook integration in iOS, non-Google sourced 3D maps, Siri for iPad and a remote chance of a retina display return of the MacBook line, slimmed down and minus an optical drive. Video coverage is rare but there are enough tech sites with live updates. Share your favourites, join in on the anticipation and give us your thoughts on what's about to be revealed.

    - retina mbp or retina display (either will do)

    - apple tv sdk

    - mac pro

    it still has the silly dent in the top, so it's not worth as much as it would be.. it's tempting but if it just suddenly breaks the company that gave this to me has to replace it with a new one... tempting... :)

  • GadgetGav11/06/2012 at 17:29

    here's what i wrote last year:

    With phones and tablets already sporting [retina] screens (and the iPad may or may not acquire one during its next upgrade), plus the rumour mill suggesting that same technology might come to a laptop near you this year, it's about time we brought such high quality visuals to this site too. - http://sidepodcast.com/post/grand-designs-revisited

  • GadgetGav11/06/2012 at 17:37

    There's space in there for "the best speakers in a desktop or notebook computer"...? Don't some of the big, thick PC laptops have THX certified or similar?

  • Mr C11/06/2012 at 17:40

    hard to see that there is much need to be honest. aside from custom graphics processor, this thing does everything else.

    All this cloud stuff is all very well, but will they make iTunes Match work properly across all devices..? I get no Genius mixes on my iPad (when the same track can spawn a Genius mix on the desktop) and it makes the iPad *so* unresponsive while it does stuff in the background (I assume). It's an awful UX...
