I don't think 4.1 will be out today, I think they'll anounce that it will be available next week.
Hopefully 4.1 includes a fix for the proximity sensor.
New Apple TV and iTunes 10 is my other guesses, and a big maybe on the iTunes streaming (which would be awesome)..

1. They will announce 4.1 but like readbeard said, it won't be available until later next week.
2. They will announce the new Nano 4 and the new iPod Touch 4.
3. The iPod Touch will have the retina display and FaceTime available for 199 for 8GB.

I want to hear something about flash content working on the iphone, whether it be adobe or some other company with an alternative product. All too often I get frustrated surfing the www only to find site incomplete or worst inaccessible. THAT'S what I want to hear about, but I digress, that's another gripe for another thread.

The ipod touch looked good. And glad to see 4.1 fixes some bugs. And appreciated knowing when 4.2 will hit.
But everything else was kinda lame.
1. Facebook for itunes = more bloat. Not wanted.
2. Don't care about other ipods..
3. Apple tv is a joke. It's basically a Roku player but using itunes store instead of amazon. Can't see renting tv shows. But i'm sure this well sell because it looks cute.

I'm kinda thinking I'll get an AppleTV for the AirPlay possibilities. I can't wait till I can FaceTime with a bunch of people haha. I also loved how Steve quickly passed over the fatty Nano and didn't mention the Classic. Also, not much talk of proximity sensor fix in 4.1. It was all about hyping what's new. Excited to get 4.2 on the iPad. iTunes/Ping? I don't want another social network.

I am excited about the HDR photo feature or iOS 4.1, as well. The game center: meh.
And having to wait until November for iOS 4.2 for the iPad is a bit of a let down...
Finally, I could care less about the additional bloat of social networking in iTunes, EXCEPT to say, it's already a pig application... this will make it worse.
And as I already said, I've ordered my AppleTV upgrade. Notice that they didn't rename it "iTV" - I guess the threat of suit from that British company put the brakes on that one... also, no iOS or A4 chip for the AppleTV...
Overall, a rather "meh" presser from Apple this time around, IMHO.

Good to see that all of the updates will be free to the device. There was one round on the iTouch 2G that you had to pay for the release. Nice to see that is not happening again.
HDR camera built in, hope the 3rd party HDR app developers got a kickback. Although just about every update had a feature that was first put out by the community either through Apple or Cydia.

Anyone else notice that during El Jobso's demo of iOS 4.2 on the iPad, when he swiped to the left in the fast app switcher/drawer to get the music controls we all know from iOS 4, there was a rotation lock button? I know that iOS 4 on the iPhone has the rotation lock button there, but why does the iPad have it? The iPad has a physical rotation lock switch. Did they just forget to take it out? Or does this mean they're going to repurpose the physical rotation lock switch into a mute switch, as they originally planned? Just something I noticed.
