Not that it looks any different than the leaks before (save for the internals)...

I wish Apple every success in taking over the fashion industry
http://www.electronista.com/articles...arable.reveal/
and bury Swiss luxury watch makers

If only they could stay there and marvel in its own magnificence!

I just hope those Cupertino narcissists never pretend again to build smartphones for human beings...

How about an "Apple Wearables" thread?

Pretty much everything one needs to know going into tomorrow's spectacle

At roughly the same time every year, Apple performs an unofficial official leak to one of the big US newspapers. Historically it has usually been the Wall Street Journal, but this year it’s the New York Times. This unofficial “pre-release” from Apple usually serves as a tidy way to brush away some of the rumor mill’s more spurious predictions — and I’m sure the stock market likes it, too.
Except for the look of the iWatch, it seems everything has been leaked.
I'm not talking about anything as "groundbreaking and industry shocking" as a 64-bit OS.

No iTV, I guess...

EDIT:
The last missing piece of the puzzle?

Kinda funny as the smartphone you're holding was quite likely heavily influenced by the "Cupertino narcissists".

The post you quoted (part of) was about the watch.
And Apple's drift away from the commoditizing smartphone market.

The high-end Swiss watch market (that Ive plans to screw) is narcissistic by definition...

Here's my prediction for tomorrow:

Apple will announce its new phone and update on iOS8 to great fanfare Some innovations will be truly important, and some claims will not be innovative at all.

Apple haters will universally pan the whole thing. Apple fanboys will universally drool. They will argue, often nonsensically.

A few weeks will pass, Apple will sell a crapload of phones. They will remain the top premium manufacturer, but the low-end will grow at a faster rate. Everybody will have something to brag about.

Life will go on.

99semaj will continue to buy all of them because that's what he likes to do. Well, probably no more Blackberry's, but he remains optimistic on QNX. Even though there's things he enjoys about his Android and Nokia 1020, he will use his Apples more.

The last was redundant.
Only "debaters of objective data" talk about themselves in third person...

iPhone 6 specs and (some) benches

Screen resolution: 1334x750.
Samsung knew what they were doing when equipping Alpha with a 720p screen...

Everything as leaked so far: sizes, names, resolution, even background pictures.
No sapphire (ion-strengthened).

Apple's live stream today is only viewable from a Mac. That's a great way to lure people from other platforms.

The first thing we haven't heard in leaks: ApplePay. 50 min into the presentation...

I heard something about ApplePay a while ago. I don't think it's a surprise.
