    I just sat through an hour and a half of tedious, irrelevant nonsense. Hardly any of the questions we've all been discussing for days were answered.

    The pricing information was flashed up for milliseconds and there was no breakdown.

    There's no ordering for a month.

    No delivery till after my birthday!

    We know very little we didn't already know.

    I hate Apple. And Tim Cook. And Jony Ive.

    wow.... It's just a product. If you hate them so much sell all your Apple products and go to Android/Microsoft.

    I don't think they painted the story they needed to. They have not said why you need this. I am also surprised that they did not have more apps. I was expecting much more app demos (which I dislike, but they are necessary). The watch was an afterthought. The star was the MacBook.

    I feel like this is the real reason why you're "furious"

    I'm surprised they didn't have more models or fashion industry people as part of the presentation. Also, I don't care about titles. They should have had Angela Ahrendts give a much shorter demo instead of Kevin Lynch doing a Bill Gates impression.

    I'm with you on ordering! One month for pre-orders and a freaking month and a half to get it at a store! What a joke! This irritated me more than anything at the event.:mad:

    Go to the Apple Store online. ALL the pricing is there now. They just didn't have time to go over it all in the keynote.

    It was an incredibly disappointing event. I think they missed a lot of information that would've been valuable.

    That's all I wanted.

    Thank you.

    I'm calm now.

    Plus I found all the info we wanted on the Apple website. The whole presentation thing was a waste of time.

    Oh. And I was pretty much bang-on with my pricing predictions.

    I love Apple. And Tim Cook. And Jony Ive.

    I'm also disappointed by the later-than-expected order/ship window.

    I was really hoping they'd be released April 9/10 as-rumored, so I could have mine in-hand for our trip to Disney World the following week.

    However, I always knew that was cutting it so close it was fragile even if that was the real date.

    I know, that was what I was hoping, now we have to wait 1 1/2 more months on top of the 6 we've already been waiting. By the time this thing launches, I'll already be bored of hearing about it and I'll just wait for the 2nd gen. :mad:

    Disappointed but not furious with the timing. For me it will be getting pretty close to my vacation so unless I get a very fast estimated ship date I will have to cancel the order and wait a month.

    I think everyone whose join date is within the last month should have their posts colored bright purple so we can spot the trolls on announcement and launch days easier.

    Is this your first Apple event? Just asking because you just described how 8 in 10 of them usually go. And even still you could have:

    1) multi-tasked and just scanned a live blog
    2) stopped watching and reviewed a blog's summary after the event or scanned the event once Apple posted the replay.

    If you are furious it should be at yourself for making this a be all or die life changing event. It was a sales show, not a high drama Tennessee Williams play.

    I'm not furious, but... it was a lackluster live event, that's for sure. I was quoting what they were about to say many times because they SAID IT ALREADY in September. They wanted a lot of time reiterating the same info we already know.

    Will everyone please stop taking me seriously! It was a joke.

    I watched the thing on my MacBook while I did a bunch of other things. I didn't even have the sound on.

    I was frustrated that there was virtually no pricing information. But that's on the website now.

    Disappointed at the pricing of the bands on the SS , got some laughs at the edition hitting $17k , but most disappointed that this was the worst keynote ever, and like it was put together a few days earlier .

    Though as a first ever I could hear crickets when the SS and pricing were announced, that was a first!
