Re: Calling all Apple fanboi's.....

Since Steve shuffled off, I am regularly disappointed by Apple keynotes and with Tim "We have fantaaaaastic products / Only Aaaaaaple could do this glassss staircase" Cook.

Since he got the top spot, he is always talking about the fantastic products in the pipeline. Well, im getting older and still waiting.

Slightly thinner ipad? Yawn.

Ipad mini with Retina. Ok but yawn. Why wasnt it there in the first place?

Mac pro... Ok its a special design but for me its more a machine for business.

Macbook pro with Haswell, so a tiny speed bump and battery life bump. Whoop de doo. Should I have trembling knees?

Apple TV, pffff.

By now I also hate the rhetoric of Phil Schiller. I always play a game. How long until he says "revolutionary", how many times he says it. This new ipad mini with revolutionary retina display! You mark my words.

And of course the Jony Ive all white and Im in a white V neck video and I know how to speak softly and inspiringly. Yeah!

Phew... I really needed to let this stuff out.

All the while, I still buy their products because I think they are the best and the best for me.

But I bemoan these keynotes nowadays.

At least Steve knew how to present.

Tim Cook doesnt even love his products enough to demonstrate them himself. He's happier meeting supply partners in Xingjang province.

I'll be undoubtedly be watching / following. I dont think they are streaming this one?

Are you waiting to purchase a mac pro? What do you plan to use it for? Rumours are they might be bringing out a new screen.. Interesting to see the design..

I will probably be tempted by a Ipad mini if it comes out with Retina as they predict

Re: Calling all Apple fanboi's.....

I recently re-watched the keynote when Steve launched the iphone. Epic.

Also I miss the phrase.....'and it ships today'.........I don't remember the last time I heard that.

Yeah, thats another bugbear of mine. The thin imac was introduced a year ago and we still await a matching thunderbolt display.

They might make me happy if they release a 30" display tonight, but, its probably not likely.

Yes, several. For the sole purpose of running Protools, Logic, and of course streaming vast amounts of p0rn.

Consumerism

Yes they are.
The article you posted says they "may be" streaming it live directly to the public, so was wondering if you knew something I didnt.
They do mention live streams for the media and employees, but nothing certain for the public.

Re: Calling all Apple fanboi's.....

I'm hoping the release puts a heap of ipad mini's from display to discount, then I'll grab one to play with, and decide whether I can handle ditching the laptop altogether...
