Two hour keynote, only one kind of interesting thing (the Retina display). All software stuff was catch-up or "coming in five months".

I'm no longer going to allocate time to this inflation of press events.

Hence the reason I didn't watch it - it was nothing more than a glorified press release because that is what it is. The keynote is developed for the lowest common denominator, namely, the press club, bloggers, tech journalists etc. it isn't there for those of us who want the juicy details. If you want the juicy bits wait till the WWDC 2012 videos are uploaded and jump straight for 'Apple Platforms Kickoff' which gives the sexy details of iOS and Mac OS X with a top level overview for both platforms.

IMHO the interesting part will be next week when the WWDC2012 videos appear and the details of the API changes and roadmaps are announced. What Apple have done with LLVM, OpenGL and OpenCL improvements, the gradual replacement of old carbon based API's with nice new Cocoa ones, the future of Quicktime now that AVFoundation was announced at WWDC2011 etc. They're the details I'm interested in so quite frankly the whole keynote was a waste of time.
