    Tomorrow's event has me excited. I don't think I've ever been this excited. But apart from just us 'tech' folks, they're creating a buzz around the block. Especially they themselves claiming that it's going to be their best products in 25 years. Their iPhone 6/Air will make heads turn and iWatch will be the show stealer. Ofcourse we will get those threads after the keynote that will troll and flame Apple. We will also get threads that people legitimately feel about the product. But I have to say that, as we go into tomorrow's keynote - keep this in mind. It'll be like 2007 all over again. New product category and new boundaries to be crossed. Excitement at it's best:apple:


    Unveiling of Macintosh in 1984:
    iPod in 2001:
    iPhone in 2007:
    iPad in 2010:
    iWatch in 2014: Coming soon

    Add any other apple moments :)

    I'm only checking this site every 5 minutes to see if I can get another glimpse at what's to come through another leak! Keynote can't come soon enough. This is the first year I won't be able to follow it live though. :( military life has it's downs I guess.

    To be honest, I don't believe tomorrow's new category announcement will be like the iPod or iPhone or iPad. That was in the Steve Jobs era. We all know how much Steve was involved in these kind of stuff, especially in 1st-gen devices. Wether we like it or not, Tim Cook is not that man. Even reports inside Apple say he isn’t involved as much. So this is Apple’s "new category" device since Steve’s passing, and things are at risk.

    With the iPod, iPhone, and iPad, everyone was playing catch-up to Apple. People were still using CD players before the iPod. People were using dumb-phones with numberpads before the iPhone. People were using netbooks before the iPad. With the iWatch however, every company already has a smartwatch product now, and they've already started to expand the market, so Apple needs to bring in everything they got to be able to lure in consumers.

    Things in 2014 are much much different from what they were in ’01, ’07, or even 2010. I hope they prove me wrong :apple:

    The fact that they are bringing so much attention towards this tells me it will blow the competition out of the water. Just have that feeling.

    Of course, this is Apple.
    I hope they live up to the promise of 'the best product pipeline in 25 years'

    I'll still be excited anyway.

    Steve was great, yes. But, he set up a team that for the most part is still there. He also had a product pipeline set up for years to come, so to say that because he's gone, it won't be industry changing is a little crazy.

    I think we will see some big things tomorrow. Only 14 hours and 15 minutes!!!
