Apple is expected to announce to new iPad mini today. The iPad 3 will be getting the Lightning connector as well. We will know more about iBooks by the time this event is done.
1:04: a lot of talk about the products that have already been released. Very similar to previous Apple events. Over 3M iPods sold.

1:10: $6.5b paid to developers.
1:11: 400m downloads for iBookstore.
1:15: as expected, there will be Mac news at this event.
1:17: brand new 13-inch MacBook Pro … .75 thick with Retina display
1: 21: Core i5 or i7 processors, 8 GB of RAM, 768 SSD storage.
1:28: next gen iMac
1:30: now that is super thin … 5mm edge
1:32: comes in two sizes, 27 inch and 21.5 inch. 27 inch with 2560 * 1440 resolution
