Sure, there were PC’s in there too, but who cares? Watching the awe-inspiring event was like a live Mac Setups post on steroids. Every once in a while you’d get a glimpse of a MacBook Pro screen and you could see an array of familiar icons in the Dock including Xcode, Preview, Chrome, Firefox, Aperture, Parallels, and more.
