Trending: The most powerful console yet, or a refrigerator? Reactions to Microsoft’s new Xbox Series X
Apple's Tim Cook and Microsoft's Peter Klein

[Correction: Microsoft’s presentation is Wednesday. Apologies for the mistake. Post and headline updated to reflect accurate days and times.]

Apple CEO Tim Cook and Microsoft financial chief Peter Klein are among the speakers this week at the Goldman Sachs Technology & Internet Conference in San Francisco, and if you’re looking for some entertainment, the audio from both sessions will be available online.

Cook is slated to start around 12:30 p.m. Pacific time today, with Klein speaking around 1:30 p.m on Wednesday.

One big question relating to both companies is how quickly the tablet market will grow in the quarters and years ahead, and whether the upcoming wave of Windows 8 tablets can challenge the iPad’s dominance of the market.

It’s unlikely that Cook will comment directly on reports predicting a smaller iPad to rival Amazon’s Kindle Fire, but it will be worth listening closely to his comments for any

Phones and patents will no doubt be another big topic, with the U.S. Justice Department and European Commission this week giving clearance to Google’s acquisition of Motorola Mobility.

Google’s Sundar Pichai, senior vice president for Chrome and Apps, is slated to preset at the same conference on Thursday.
