Is that view count right? More than double the WWDC thread?

Yes. That thread is over 2 years old. I created it back when WB released the first picture of Henry Cavill as Superman.

Nobody ever mentions my legendary sexual prowess.

Hmm ... Superman vs WWDC

Plot: tie. Both events are heavily scripted.
Directing: Superman. WWDC had fewer people doing fewer things.
Budget: Superman. $225M vs $10-20M (?)
Stars: Superman. 9 stars with worldwide recognition vs 1-2 with tech recognition.
CGI: Superman. WWDC slides do not compare.
Action: Superman. The WWDC dudes didn't stage a single fistfight.
Age: Superman. 75 years old vs 20+ years of WWDC.
Music: Superman. WWDC lacked scoring during most scenes.
Love interest: Superman. WWDC completely missed this base.

Also, I expect Superman could wipe the stage with talking office types. BANG-POW-KABOOM

Supposedly, production facilities for the new Mac Pro alone cost $100 million. Add R&D for the Airs, and add cost of development for plot elements and stars of the show, iOS 7 and 10.9, and you're probably approaching a tie.

Yeah, but did Superman have a car chase? WWDC had a car chase.

With music!

They were obviously in their secret identities, except for Jony the Iveman, but he wasn't even *in* the show.

D'oh!

You know, I thought that might be possible but didn't check for fear of spoilers.

Not the best thought process, but a thought process nonetheless.
