Apple to get a new iLife, MacBook Air and... one other thing

Shortly after 1 p.m. Eastern today, Apple will introduce a new MacBook Air laptop, update its iLife multimedia suite and demonstrate some new features of the next version of Mac OS X. Well, that's what I think. But the people who know for a fact aren't talking about it now;...
