Apple Likes Wires

In watching the Apple September 2012 music event, I noticed that Jeff Robin gave the iTunes demo on a Mac with wired keyboard and mouse.
While Apple still sells their wired keyboard and mouse, and you can configure a new Mac with these options, I was surprised they weren’t using a Magic Mouse or Magic Trackpad. Maybe this is just another example of Apple trying to think of everything for the presentation. With so much wireless in the room, I think they were worried about reliability issues caused by interference from other bluetooth devices. Just to be safe, a wired keyboard and mouse ensured there were no problems.
