Apple is currently holding a live press event a their Cupertino, California headquarters where they are announcing the next iteration of their acclaimed iPhone line of smartphones. In addition to the new smartphones, details on the latest version of their operating system - iOS 7 - is being shared.
At one point during the presentation, Craig Federighi, Apple's senior vice president of Software Engineering began demonstrating the iTunes radio station feature and, lo and behold, Rush was used as their example! Apparently Mr. Federighi said something to the effect of "We're were going to show you how to get a pure dose of awesome."
The CNET liveblogger remarked "Never have I heard so much applause for Rush!"
