01:54pm And that’s it! From what I’ve been able to hear, sounds like there were a lot of great announcements. Thanks for spending your afternoon with Mockcrunch! I gotta get out of here.

01:52pm I really hope there’s a One More Thing. And I hope that One More Thing is either free food or a cleanup crew for this gross isle.

01:48pm This thing is really long. I really wasn’t anticipating this. I should’ve eaten some food beforehand.

01:45pm People are gasping at something called “flyover”. Not sure what it is yet.

01:42pm I’m not sure if my nausea is causing me to hallucinate or not, but I think I just heard that the new maps have turn-by-turn directions!

01:39pm Powering through just for you guys. New maps have been announced for iOS!

01:37pm Seriously, I can’t even begin to tell you how gross it is where I am. It’s really difficult to pay attention.

01:34pm I can’t concentrate. It smells like puke. What the hell is wrong with people.

01:32pm Wow. This guy right next to me just THREW UP. He said “I’m sorry guys. I’m just so excited.” God, so gross.

01:30pm I just bought Facebook stock because of Facebook integration with iOS 6. Though WiFi is pretty bad in here. I’m not sure if the order went through or not.

01:29pm FaceTime is getting some face time. I just heard it will be available on cellular data now!

01:27pm There’s a new Do Not Disturb feature on iOS. I just told the guy in front of me “Wish I had that feature for YOU”

01:21pm Someone just shouted at the top of their lungs “SIRI IN MY CAAAARRRR”

01:18pm They are definitely talking about SIRI. How do I know? Douchebag in front of me says “I could do that on Android’s voice control for years. Hahaha”

01:12pm Side note, how long is this freakin thing?

01:10pm Ok, we’re on to iOS 6! Here we go!

01:10pm I just told the guy in front of me that if he doesn’t shut up, I’m going to smash my outdated Macbook over his head. He’s quiet now, and I’m able to hear some of this now!

01:07pm Jesus. This laptop is burning my crotch.

01:05pm I think I’m hearing some dubstep… ?

01:04pm I know I’m missing some of the updates. But if you were in my seat, you’d understand how difficult this is. And this guy in front of me WON’T SHUT UP.

01:01pm I could really go for a power nap

12:59pm I swear, every skinny guy from Apple looks the same. At least from where I’m sitting.

12:55pm WTF. My computer went to sleep.

12:55pm alfhduahldsudhldashfsddsflauhasdldsfhuflahadfsludsfhfds

12:54pm Well, that didn’t last long. I was forced to move back to my seat. :(

12:52pm Sitting on the isle floor! You’re going to get some killer updates until I get kicked out! Ok, here we go. We’re on Mountain Lion. They are talking about iCloud.

12:50pm I’m going to try sneaking up closer guys. This isn’t going well. Hold on.

12:46pm Wait wait, no. Apparently he said “Lion”. That doesn’t even sound that much like iPhone. Sorry guys.

12:46pm OMG a new iPHONE!! Confirming..

12:44pm Retina Macbook is apparently 2200 dollars! Well, I’m buying it. I have no money, but I’m buying it.

12:42pm There’s a video being played right now. I wish I could tell you more, but seriously, I really can’t see or hear it. I’m pretty annoyed here. They definitely oversold tickets to this event. We are way too far back.

12:40pm Nope, nevermind. Definitely not Steve Jobs. From the side though, I swear, damn near spitting image of him.

12:40pm Guys, I swear I just saw Steve Jobs roaming around. Maybe he faked his own death!

12:37pm “Yeah, this Macbook sounds great. But it’ll be like 3 thousand bucks. No one is gonna be able to afford this thing.” – that Apple hater in front of me.

12:35pm Back in my seat! Ok, definitely a new Macbook has been presented. I just saw a guy throw his Macbook into the trashcan! It’s getting weird in here.

12:32pm Some guy passed me. “Retina display Macbook. Pretty amazing huh?” Awesome! I must have missed it.

12:30pm Wow, no one in this bathroom right now. Every Apple fanboy is holding it.

12:29pm Posting from the urinal. LOL

12:28pm I really have to go to the bathroom. I can’t continue to hold it. BRB

12:27pm People are going nuts! I seriously have no idea why.

12:23pm New Macbooks confirmed! I am hearing it mentioned quite a bit around me.

12:22pm Boom. Got a power adapter from that Apple hater in front of me. For someone who hates Apple so much, he sure seems to have quite a few Apple products.

12:20pm This Macbook Air CANNOT hold a charge. I need a power adapter. Fast.

12:19pm Cheering ensues!

12:17pm “I’d love to see any new feature here that Android isn’t already doing.” This guy in front of me is talking so loud. That’s all I can hear.

12:11pm I can’t be sure, but I think I’m hearing Chinese language.

12:10pm They are showing a video. We’re pretty far in the back so I can only barely hear it. I can’t see it at all.

12:09pm I heard something about apps, but I’m pretty preoccupied trying to get this working. Hold on.

12:03pm Dang it guys, I’m having trouble getting logged into WordPress. One sec.

Hologram of Apple’s Steve Jobs To Appear At iPhone 5 Keynote [RUMOR]

We received a juicy rumor today that Apple is planning to bring Steve Jobs back to life in the form of a hologram to announce the next iPhone at Apple’s upcoming keynote event. According to our source, Apple has been working with AV Concepts, the team that created the incredible Tupac Hologram which made its appearance just last week at Coachella. They are digitally recreating Steve Jobs’s body and voice, allowing Apple to create entirely new product announcements that the hologram of Steve Jobs can lead, creating the illusion that Steve Jobs was brought back to life on stage.

This is a very calculated move by Apple, as the last keynote lead by Apple’s new CEO, Tim Cook, lacked the spark, excitement, and famous “reality distortion field” that only Steve Jobs could deliver. Many believe Steve Jobs’s charisma and presentation prowess was a key contributor to Apple’s massive turn-around over the last decade. This is a natural move for Apple, allowing the company to continue to create the “must have” reaction and instant emotional product attachment that Jobs consistently produced.

We reached out to a Dave Carbon, a tech editor at the Wall Street Journal for a comment. “Apple is smart. They know they are missing the famous ‘reality distortion field’ and it’s only a matter of time before this begins to affect Apple’s brand. It’s only natural that they evolve the ‘reality distortion field’ to include Steve Jobs’s existence. There’s some sort of ironic serendipity there.”

How will everyone react? Some may feel its in poor taste – others will be blown away at the illusion of Steve Jobs’s revival. Will this hurt or help Apple’s brand?
