    1) First 15 minutes of marketing crap

    2) Numerous videos where "everyday" people are gushing over some new feature, usually things that wind up being a bust, like facetime

    3) Software apps that highlight a new feature that are usually way too long and do not adequately display the full effect of the feature because the software developer didn't get enough time to develop it

    4) Bad classic-pop-rock music by has been performers


    Man I wish they would just spend 15 minutes total showing us the product,releasing the specs and talking about availability. Instead, this thing will go on for an hour and a half. :D

    Somewhere Back In The Long Ago
    1) I agree

    2) FT is far from a "Bust" I use it every day to keep in touch with overseas relatives...Bugs? yep, but I have found workarounds for most.

    3) I Like old classic rock!!

    The rest I agree with...:)

    You have ADD.

    Also, frak ju, classic rock is miles better than most of what's being done now, if only because it involves instruments instead of clicks on a mouse to make the music (ie there's too little humanity in the music).

    Just start paying attention 20 mins into the presentation and not worry about having to deal with those things

    I agree with everything but #4.

    I don't blame Apple for spending so much time patting themselves on the back, but the stuff that bugs me most is the applaud by the media. These are the unbiased journalists whose opinions we are supposed to trust?

    Just why? Everyone will get the info out anyways. We just want to see it in HD live.

    BTW- I do myself love most classic rock (I'm a heavy metal type of guy), but the Apple events seem to choose the most lame artists / songs on the pop side of classic rock.

    Watching all the demo's and updated app crap in the hope of "one more thing".
