    Somewhere over the rainbow
    Tim Cook started off by saying that 400 million accounts and 600 million apps are on the app store, of which 225,000 are iPad-capable. That was hardly any news compared to the rest...

    Mac stuff:
    • At about 10:16 A.M, Tim Cook announced the new Macbook line and OSX Mountain Lion updates
    • He gave the stage to Phil Schiller, who started off with the Macbook Air
    • The Air recieved a major boost; it got upgraded to Ivy Bridge. Up to 2Ghz, 3.2Ghz with turbo boost
    • The integrated graphics are 60% faster; with a maximum SSD capacity of 512GB!
    • They added USB 3.0, and updated the facetime camera
    • The Macbook Pro got updated as well to Ivy Bridge, with 2.7Ghz without, and 3.7Ghz with, turbo boost
    • It got updated to USB 3.0 as well, but now the sizes are 13 and 15 inch only :(
    • Alongside this, Apple released another Macbook Pro, with a Retina Display, really thin body, 16GB ram, and more!
    • Dictation, Safari, blah blah blah I don't have time for this
    At this time the stock went up 0.5% :)

    Now iOS recieved a part in the show as well...
    • iOS6 was announced, and Apple ditched Google Maps for its own 3D navigation app!
    • Siri can tell sports scores now, and it learned more about restaurants
    • And movie star questions, for those gossipers out there :)
    • It can finally launch apps!
    • And Siri's on the new iPad
    That is all.
